Sonic X-Treme (homebrew version)

Sonic X-Treme (homebrew version) 2022-08-29

The latest entry in the numerous Sonic X-Treme fan recreations, this one attempts to bring together levels (with fisheye effect), bosses, menus, smooth gameplay and fun gimmicks into a single package - but is also created for none other than the system that the original game was slated to be released on in 1996 - the SEGA Saturn!

WAYS TO PLAY
Download a program that can burn a disc image file to a blank CD-R (for example, imgburn).
Run it and select sonic-xtreme.cue as the source file, and select the destination drive containing an inserted blank CD-R.
For best results, it's often recommended to burn at the slowest speed that your drive and specific CD-R will allow.
Let the program burn the game to the CD; this could take a few minutes depending on the write speed.
When prompted, close down the program and eject the CD (and don't forget to label it).
Place the CD into your (modified!) SEGA Saturn. Then, boot the game as you would any other burned disc. Have fun!

This demo has been confirmed to run on PAL and NTSC-U model 2 systems. NTSC-J and/or model 1 Saturns should still work fine though.
Download a SEGA Saturn emulator of your choice and set it up (outside the scope of this quick guide, sorry).
For the best experience, it's strongly recommended to use Mednafen. While all aspects of the game run fine in Yabause/YabaSanshiro/Kronos, there are some glaring audio and visual issues that stem from incorrect emulation, not the game itself.
Because Mednafen is a command-line based program, you may want to use MedGUI Reborn, which provides an easier interface to set up Mednafen and run games through it.
Once your emulator of choice is set up, simply open sonic-xtreme.cue and the game should boot. Have fun!
