Re: How many drives do you need for a Chao to become a Fly Chao?

Assuming the chao has been given no animals or drives since hatching, I believe 10 purple drives is the minimum to get a child Chao on the path to evolving into fly type, and 20 purple drives will max out the swim<>fly slider in the fly direction. If you have no idea as to where the Chao's evolution...

Re: SA2B: Chao won't plant trees in Hero Garden

It might just be auto-corrupt screwing things up for you, but in case you didn't know, the plural of Chao is still Chao.

Sadly, I can't offer any advice on your actual problem as I never tried to plant trees myself.

Re: Why are there no second evolutions with swim+fly and run+power?

Short answer: because they are opposing types. Long answer: A chao's gradual evolution is influenced by a trio of evolution sliders that range from -1 to +1 with 0 being neutral/normal and the extremes representing pairs of opposing types. These three sliders are: Hero<>Dark Swim<>Fly Run<>Power Whe...

Re: SADX Steam - Chao Genetics fix?

Re: anyone know chaos chao cheats?

I don't know the specific emulator you're using, but you might be able to speed things up by either unthrottling the emulation(so the game runs as fast as your computer can handle) or employing features to speed things up on slower machines that aren't needed on yours. Whether speeding up gameplay w...

Re: Updates on the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie (2019)

While the Sega logo has been stylized in all caps since at least Sonic 1, I'd argue rendering their name using standard capitalization rules doesn't qualify as an error, and it strikes me a bit odd that people would go out of their way to all-cap the name in plain text.

Re: Help! The Peridot egg never appears in the Tiny Chao Garden!

Sadly, to really know what's going on, you'd probably have to disassemble/decompile every game with a TCG and then siff through the result to find the code responsible for selecting the next egg. And even if the coded probabilities match the commonly published ones(though, in all fairness, they're p...

Re: Can my chao reincarnate if he was 3?

I don't remember the details, but I think Chao die or reincarnate whenever this number reaches zero....
