What made Sega go from making games consoles to just making games?

the presure from nintendo and the fact that dreamcast could not sell good enough to turn profit for sega, all these years of making failed products like sega cd sega 32x sega cdx the cancelled neptune , saturn and the fact that ea wouldnt make any games for sega hurt them , so they decided it was time to go third party , hope that answer is good enough

What was knuckles 2nd game?

"Knuckles Chaotix". Even though "Sonic 3" and "Sonic and Knuckles" were two separate games for the Sega Genesis, but the were both in the same story line. It started in "Sonic 3" and then continued in "Sonic and Knuckles". Knuckles Chaotix for the 32x, is his second game.

Why was Sonic X-treme cancelled?

because evrything that could go wrong, went wrong. but first let me start from the begining...Sonic X-treme was originally intended to be developed for several other game consoles prior to the Sega Saturn. In its earliest conception, the game was set to be released on the Sega Genesis and later on the 32X, under the name Sonic Mars(based on the codename for the 32X, Sega Mars). Sonic Mars would also have featured Sally Acorn and the other Freedom Fighters from the Saturday morning animated series, Sonic the Hedgehog.[2] Part of the project staff included Chris Senn, who designed demo animations in order to persuade executives, and Michael Kosaka, who was the staff leader and the game's producer.However, that project was eventually shifted: it was decided that the game would require much more powerful hardware to cope with the new engine, and for commercial reasons, Kosaka's departure from Sega and the eventual commercial failure of the 32X, the release of a Sonic game on the upcoming Sega Saturn console was necessary.The game was being developed by Sega Technical Institute (STI), a U.S.-based developer that had worked on games such as Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic Spinball, The Ooze and Comix Zone.The game concept was an extension of the previous Sonicgames, as a platformer. The game itself was initially developed separately by two teams in parallel. The first team was in charge of developing the main game engine. The levels themselves were developed in a tubular mode, allowing level rotation and gravity directions, and as result, moved around Sonic. The fish-eye lens camera view, developed by programmer Ofer Alon, gave the game a distinctive spherical appearance. Game designer Chris Coffin was hired by Sega and tasked with creating the separate "boss level" portions of the game that was suggested to use a different viewpoint from the main game. Alon and Chris Senn continued their work on the main game in parallel with Coffin's Sonic X-treme boss engine. Coffin developed all "boss engine" work on the Sonic Mars hardware prototype initially before it was decided that Sega needed to make a Sonic game for the Sega Saturn.For the boss level engine, several modes such as top-down and side scrolling views were prototyped to create a more interesting view of the boss battle areas while still using the prerendered Sonic sprite assets used in the main game engine developed by Ofer. Ofer continued developing the main game editor tools and engine code on Mac and Windows. Development picked up again and it seemed the game's deadline for release would be met after all. From a code standpoint the boss engine and main game were basically two games developing at the same time that shared some global memory to remember game state and use a process called executable chaining to switch from the main game to boss levels and back. The boss level engine began to evolve into a game of its own using this new source of inspiration, trying to stay closer to its 2D roots by adopting a 3D but side-scrolling viewpoint. The new boss engine gameplay prototype adopted a more pastel color scheme and organic flow of the inspirational NiGHTS game causing some divided opinions among team members that felt originality was being sacrificed.In March 1996, Sega of Japan representatives went over to Sega Technical Institute's headquarters to verify the game's progress. They were unimpressed at the progress made on the main game engine, which was actually based on an old version of the main game's engine. The then-most recent build of the game, was never shown to the representatives, since they left STI before they were allowed to watch that version, but were impressed by the boss engine they requested the entire game be reworked on that engine instead.Some time after, Alon was taken off the project, and Senn left with him, leaving Coffin's team as the only one resuming development on the game. Producer Mike Wallis took one step further and put the team together to work in isolation and away from the company's politics, so that they can be able to finish the game before the 1996 Christmas deadline. The team practically moved into the company's office and worked sixteen hours a day.The boss engine never used the NiGHTS engine, never saw any code, tools or assistance from Sonic Team. Even one of AM1's own arcade teams from Japan that was transplanted to the offices of STI and developed Dynamite Deka (known as Die Hard Arcade) was not privileged with any such knowledge or special support. A few months into Coffin's involvement in Sonic X-treme, the studio director showed Coffin a playable pre-release level of NiGHTS. Coffin fell in love with the game's look and feel of NiGHTS for Sonic X-treme's boss levels. In April, 1996, requesting a petition from the studio director, the then newcomer Sega of America CEO Bernie Stolar managed to deliver the NiGHTS out of necessity of getting the tools that the team did not have the time to develop. However, this was not consulted to NiGHTS main developer, Yuji Naka, himself threatened to quit Sega several months later because he assumed the Sonic X-treme team had been given access to his game's source code and art. As a result, the code was never used, and the team lost two weeks of work.In respect to Alon and Senn, and according to Senn, STI management viewed Alon as a maverick who did not follow company politics and did little to direct the other programmers. Point of View was recruited to continue technical development of the game. In an attempt to demonstrate to Alon and Senn the reason for the drastic action, technical director Robert Morgan showed them a demo created by Point of View. Senn recalled,"They showed us the Sonic sprite we were already using floating in the upper-right of the screen, a checkerboard ground, a rotating shaded polygonal shape floating in the air and maybe a ring sprite animating. For all that we had created, to throw all that away for such nonsense. Amazing."Undeterred by having their work rejected, Alon and Senn, after leaving the project, continued developing their version of Sonic X-treme as a PC game. However, it was eventually rejected, and it prompted Alon to leave Sega.By then, the team was running short on manpower, and as Point of View had not gotten much farther than its initial demo, the project all had fallen on the Sonic Xtreme Project Team to finish it up before the Christmas deadline. Coffin, who had been overworking non-stop to get this project out, came down with pneumonia. Since Coffin was leading the technology end and creating the engine, the loss caused the project to be indefinitely delayed and the studio director informed management that the team could not continue and the game would not be released in time for Christmas. The project was officially cancelled. Sega of America decided to discontinue the game and switched to an alternative project: Sonic 3D Blast.[3]i searched it up on wikipedia.

What does anti aliasing mean?

anti aliasing (AA) is the process of smoothing edges so they dont appear jagged. The number associated with it (2x, 4x, 8x, 16x, 32x) is the number of samples taken to smooth it. to make it appear smoother, pixels around an area are added together then an average color is found. basically, the higher the number, the smoother it will appear. however, AA is some of the most taxing work that a CPU/GPU will do and can quickly overwhelm it the wikipedia article here shows very good examples of the different levels of anti aliasing

Is the super nintendo better than the sega mega drive?

Mega drive is better in many ways. The design is awesome, has a headphone jack, and you can plug a sega cd or 32x in it and play cd and 32x games. Even the controller is better. It is small and has a nice grip. The cartrages are smaller and can fit in somebodys hand. You even get better graphics!
