It helps the game stand for its own and not just become a Crash Bandicoot ripoff. The strangest thing that happened though was when I finished playing; I booted back to the Dreamcast menu, and my VMU's icon had been changed from a happy face to the Crave logo. I checked to see if there was an extra file saved on my VMU along with my save in the menu; nothing. I even deleted the save, and still nothing.
So then I booted up the handy-dandy Dream Explorer and found a 3 block icon data file for the Crave logo that was hidden from the default file menu. If you didn't catch onto that, Super Magnetic Neo basically installed a virus onto my VMU (not in the way that it harms files, but makes changes to the settings without telling the player). I didn't even know that was possible, let alone that developers would be sneaky enough to put them in.
I was incredibly confused, and eventually found out that other games do this as well, like Shadowman. None of my other Crave games do this though.
Could I get some more info on this, as well as more games that do things like this? Thanks.
This same thing happens, if you play super magnetics neo, on reicast emulator for android too.
And even when you delete the magnetic neo game save file, the crave logo, becomes your VMU
icon pic. It's so weird. Lol.
