9.2.1 WED Tutorials (using the world editor)

9.2.2 MED Tutorials (using the model editor) How to create precise circles and spheres - Circles and especially spheres are tough to make and often imprecise just by plotting points and moving them around. This tutorial makes circle and sphere creation very easy, very precise and quick. How to make levels in MED - Making levels in MED has many powerful advantages, but can be tricky to do. This tutorial makes it easy and supersonic fast due to my devotion toward speed.

10.1 Theories

10.2 Experiments

10.3.2 How I process music for my MP3 player - I'm far different when it comes to music. From an original WAV file, I explain the process I use to get songs on my MP3 player.

10.4 Video-Game-related
10.4.1 Screenshots and videos Screenshots - I do all sorts of weird things in games whether adding spikes for the fox in Sonic to help it drown, or getting tossed up at 2400 mph in Super Monkey Ball 2 and trying to land on the stage again safely. These screenshots show various bugs and weird encounters I've had. Videos - [to be created when 2 or more videos are available]
10.4.2 Sonic fox drowners and removers Carnival Night Zone fox drowner - Love drowning Tails the fox on the classic Sonic games? This is a fully-tested, small design I made to drown Tails in the blue water of Carnival Night Zone on Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Hydrocity Zone Act 2 fox drowner - Because I love drowning Tails the fox in the game's blue water, I often use debug mode to make small areas where Tails the fox could drown. This is one of the first I created, but hasn't been very extensively tested, though well-tested. Mushroom Hill Act 2 fox remover - Getting rid of the fox outside drowning it is less exciting, but, after having found a bug with the battery blimp in Mushroom Hill Zone right after the boss, I thought of an ingenious way to remove the fox to get a more extreme case of the bug. This design is fully tested.
10.4.3 List of games I've played - this is an extensive list containing many of the video games I've played, thost only rented, once owned, and currently own. Several remarks are given.
