Fan Scene: Sonic 2 HD Kicks the Bucket

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Sonic 2 HD, the promising HD fan remake of Sonic 2 has been officially cancelled as per a message left by Vincent (the project leader) on the project’s official Facebook. Reasons for this are mainly pinned on ex-lead developer LOst who wouldn’t provide the rest of the team with a DRM free version of the game and is solely responsible for the inclusion of the DirectInput bug which made users believe they’d downloaded a keylogger. He is also the only person holding what would be the source code for the game so production cannot continue without his involvement.


Never-the-less, it’s sad to see the project go as the alpha demo was an impressive piece of work by what is essentially a bunch of bedroom coders. 2 members of the team (scanline99 and Cerulean Nights) have moved on to other independent work in hopes of furthering their game-developing careers and we wish them all the best for the future.

Keylogger in Sonic 2 HD Not Harmful; Lead Programmer Fired From Project

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Members of Sonic Retro have discovered that the keylogger found in Sonic 2 HD’s code is not harmful to anyone who downloaded the game.

Lead programmer LOst has also been fired from the team after “several allegations from team members that LOst held the project hostage through the inclusion of DRM, public feedback of a bloated engine running an otherwise simplistic game, and other behind the scenes issues.”

IMPORTANT: If You Downloaded Sonic 2 HD You Need to Delete It

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Anyone who downloaded the recently featured Sonic 2 HD needs to get rid of it fast as it was discovered recently that it contains a keylogger which could have potetntially bad consequences if you regularly enter passwords and personal information in secure websites. Here’s the full details from Sonic Retro:

“Earlier today, I was contacted by a professional antivirus employee who was interested in why Sonic 2 HD consistently popped up as a threat by multiple antivirus software programs and did some investigation. His results showed that a keylogger is part of the Sonic 2 HD software. After receiving this notification, we conducted our own independent tests and found that there is indeed a keylogging program as part of the Sonic 2 HD alpha software.

I want to emphasize that at this time, we have found no evidence that the software has been “phoning home” any data—only that we have found the capability exists.

Because this vulnerability has been found, we are strongly advising that the software be removed. You will need to delete the files included with the Sonic 2 HD zip, as well as the registry keys hooked at HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/NakaSMK (if you are unfamiliar on how to do this, go to Start->Run.., type regedit, follow the folder path, and then delete the NakaSMK folder.)

We will have more information on the situation as it evolves.”
