    I just got this and started playing it. Really enjoying it so far, but, err, any reason why trying to do the rouge challenge level in seaside hill crashes the game without fail?

    You in Germany or something? It's very lewd. Maybe it's censored.

    I'm not even joking.

    Oh brilliant

    Assuming you're talking about the PC version, there's probably a missing or corrupted file. To fix this, right click on the game's entry in Steam, then go to Properties -> Local Files tab -> "Verify Integrity of Game Cache"

    Nope. It's not the german version. Especially since it'll crash midway through the mission, and not at the beginning.

    I also just verified the files. Nothing had to redownload.

    Edit: Looking around, this seems to be at least a somewhat common crash. Guess I'll just have to do a different challenge.

    This is downloading now. I heard that classic Sonic's cutscenes are better than modern Sonic's, and you have to beat levels in a certain order to see them.

    So who do I beat the level with first in order to see the proper cutscene?

    The only difference is the short cutscene after you beat both versions of a stage where the character you rescue thanks Sonic for helping them. Do Modern (Act 2) first to see the Classic Sonic scenes.

    Okay cool, thanks.

    Oh and the first boss. The cutscene you get when you go fight the first boss depends on which Sonic you enter the boss gate as.

    Personally, I think it's better to see Modern Sonic's version of the cutscene first, then Classic's on subsequent playthroughs.

    Oh brilliant

    Generations' version of the Metal Sonic fight is what I always wanted it to be, I think. It finally feels like a race at breakneck speeds even though it's been converted to a true boss fight. After I finished it, I played it a couple more times in a row. :D

    Yes, you are joking. If anything were censored in a hypothetical German version (which does not exist for this game), it would be excessive violence or Nazi symbolism, but not "lewdness".
    Anyway, if you consider that particular mission lewd, you must be Amish or something...

    I grabbed Sonic Generations for pc during the steam sale.
    Does anyone else get framerate drops on occasion? They're not a huge deal, but it's a little jarring.

    I've only gotten framerate drops when it's playing the "You rescued a buddy!" animation; the sparkles seem to freak the game out for some reason.

    I'm much more concerned about where the hell that DLC is. I've been jonesing for that spinball action, and I want to know why they missed the Steam deadline by 3 days.

    Yeah. I got some framerate dips in chemical plant zone and a few other places. I don't think the game really likes particle effects.

    friend grabbed this for me during the sale. I remember in vids seeing modern sonic do this weird drift that's like a spindash. Is this a normal move or is this unlocked with an item like certain things were in Sonic Adventure 2?

    got this for christmas, been having a blast

    not caring for planet wisp so much but thats about it. crush 40 era has been my favorite section so much

    Try out some of the missions in planet wisp. Initially it was my least favorite zone, but the missions associated with it did a lot to improve it's image in my mind.

    The mission set at dusk in particular is great.

    Maybe I should take this advice. I have been avoiding the Planet Wisp missions since I am not looking forward to spending 10 minutes playing the most boring level in the game. But I'm guessing the 'race another Sonic' challenge is still going to be the entire, godawfully boring level.

    A Modern Sonic challenge on Planet Wisp - "By Your Powers Combined" is quite honestly the high point of the mission gameplay. Plus it covers Planet Wisp in snow. It's wonderful.

    And just as TSR foretold, lo - a Sonic 4:II announcement and trailer:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN510TrBdwU

    No gameplay, it's just like the initial Sonic 4 trailer. But a couple cool reveals, I guess. And assurances the physics are closer to the classic games...

    Yes. I didn't get it at first. The nudge, wink about who is appearing in Sonic 4 episode 2. I assumed he was going for an Eggman look.

    It's not been a bad run for a while for Sonic. Sonic Colors is pretty great, Generations (I haven't played it yet) seems to be awesome, and no matter what haters have said, Sonic 4 was pretty enjoyable. (The episodic thing was stupid though.)

    Whoo, no uncurling when you roll up a ramp. When he says "New graphics and physics engine", I wonder if he means brand new or Different from the one used in episode 1.

    I still have my fingers crossed for the retro engine. :P

    @-Tal and Aaron KI;

    I'd be wary though, about how big a change it is. He said "within the scope" which makes it sound like they're keeping and tweaking the Sonic 4 engine, imo.

    Hm. Even so, Sonic 4 was very close to being good. I think that's why I hated it so much. I could see the really good parts shining through, but the bad parts pulled it down enough to make it unenjoyable for me. Frustration eventually turned into anger.

    If I could only choose one change to Episode 2, I'd want the camera to be zoomed out from what it was in Episode 1. The screen was cropped so close around sonic that sometimes I felt like I was playing Sonic 2 GameGear. :P

    I'm calling it now; Sonic 4 Episode 2 has Classic Sonic and Tails and continues from Sonic Generations, with Metal Sonic being how Eggman returns to torment them.

    Are you fucking serious? Cream and Jean-Luc Picard? No. In all of my stories it's been Morgan Freeman. And it always will be.

    I think I heard about that one. Wasn't it just titled "Angst"?

    Is Speed Highway Classic known for the camera freaking out on the PS3 version? As I was playing it was like the camera would somehow switch to a view that was behind the level, but still aimed at sonic.

    There are actually several places all over the game where the camera can get screwed up like that, and I'm playing the PC version so it's probably universal.

  • Options
    edzeppedzepp Registered User regular
    Oh yeah. I had a camera glitch in Classic Speed Highway during the building interior section, where the view suddenly settled in front of Sonic, creating this weird pseudo-3D perspective that made it nigh impossible to jump on to a moving platform behind me.

    I think the bigger question is why he needs car insurance, but that's already been pointed out elsewhere.

    I really need to finish generations, but I need to get myself a new controller first.
