This feature was put into the debug menu, I understand. I don't *know*
because I was never able to *use* it. Note to the Sega rep: most people
can't enter UUDDUUUU in the space of a single second, myself included.
If you want your debug code to be difficult to stumble on, make it a
combination of tunes in the options menu, like in Sonic 2, or give the
player lots of time to enter it at the title screen.

All Sega CDs are stored in a format that has at least two tracks: the
first is the program, the second and following are game musics that can
be played by any CD player. (Attempting to play the first track will get
you silence, in my experience.) Sonic CD stores its present and future
musics, along with music for things like the special stage and being
fast, in these tracks. Short answer: yes. (:3

So have him show up in intermission scenes, possibly offering advice,
maybe even useful advice. (:3

Oooh, I hadn't thought of this! (:3 Like it better for a special stage,
