Chao Black market files revived (Kind of)

Post#1 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 4:02 pm

Hello all I just wanted to share with you something I have been working on the past few days.
I started decoding the save files of Chao adventure 2 games to see what values the chao have
Inspired by dreampipe.net's revived SA2 website and black chao I decided to give the world every available chao color and jewel type in SA2 through my website

I will also post all of my findings and hex values once I am sure everything is correct

Please check it out and give me any suggestions! http://www.slurmking.net/dream/chao.php
Note the website looks like it does because it is made to run on Dreamcast browsers

I was actually thinking about ways we can bring the whole experience back.
I cant seem to find any information on how the transfer worked, but I assume once you got the chao it had random; face/eyes/stats and if someone is good enough with PHP they could write a script that would generate the user a random chao with the color of their choice to bring back full functionality

Yes actually I do, currently I am working on a guide for what hex values edit what parts of the chao.

For example currently I have found 15 different mouths with the chao in hex values from 00 to 0F.
If someone who is good a php came along, they could have the site randomize that value when you download the chao so that you get the real experience of getting a new chao and not just a cloned one like I have set up now. As for the emblem requirements for the original black market it will be the same principle, upload your sa2 save and the server checks how many emblems you have. If you have enough for the requirement the server pushes you the download.


Edit - Just edited the first post with all the hex values I have found so far

The website I am hosting the files on is php and it seems to work on the dreamcast pretty well so your thing should be fine
