  • 2Leftovers

Final Egg's Egg Keeper

An Egg Keeper at the start of the stage in Final Egg was removed in the GameCube version of the game. For whatever reason, it was added back in for this release.

Leftovers

This version of Sonic Adventure DX has quite a few leftovers from the 2010 console release of the game, mostly due to the reorganisation of menu screens.

Sonic Adventure Logo/Menus

The Steam version, unlike the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, is Sonic Adventure DX rather than Sonic Adventure with optional DX DLC. However, the resources for the original title screen and menus still exist; they simply changed the code that checks for the DLC to always return true.

To reactivate them, change the byte at 00404DB1 from 1 to 0 with Cheat Engine. Unfortunately, the game does not function properly like this: the title screen does not respond to pressing Start, and menus often think you are selecting something other than what you are.

Xbox 360 Controller

A controls map for an Xbox 360 controller can be found in the folder NowLoading. However, regardless of whether the player is using an Xbox 360 controller or not the in-game 'Controls' menu will always display a keyboard.

How to Play Menu

In the console versions of the game, there is a 'How to Play' option in the help menu that provides the player with easy access to each character's instruction menus. The help menu removes this option in the PC version, but the How to Play menu can still be found by setting the menu ID to 21.

Pressing the back button sends the player to the Help & Options menu.

Mini Game Collection

Previous versions of Sonic Adventure DX had a Mini Game Collection, accessed via the main menu, which allowed you to unlock and play Sonic's entire Game Gear library (a pretty big deal given that there were 12 of them).

The menu was made inaccessible in this version of the game, but the menu itself and all 12 games are still present and fully functional, though they don't display correctly at resolutions higher than 640×480. The menu can be found by setting the menu ID to 13.

Scoreboards

The PC version removed the scoreboard feature that was included with the console versions of the game. Though the feature was removed, the menus associated with the scoreboard are still functional with the exception of having no data to display and a few graphical bugs. This menu can be found by setting the menu ID to 22.

Japanese PS3 Manual

The folder TUTO_Texture contains the virtual instruction booklet for the Japanese PSN release, unedited. Also, the 'Logo' file mentions the PlayStation 3, but only the Japanese one as well.

A 2004 PC port of Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut that, as was standard with other PC ports of Sega games at the time, is pretty poor.

Debugging Features

Debug Movement

Setting 0x3B29D08 to 1 in Cheat Engine will enable a Debug Movement display showing all invisible walls and inactive objects on the map. This also enables Free Movement mode for every character, except Tails, moving around for a bit will also activate a display.

Debug Collision

The Collision Debugger from the DC Version is also present, but it has been almost completely removed.

Tokyo Game Show Menus

The TGS Menus from the DC version are still present, to access it, replace the seven bytes at C53A in sonic.exe with seven 90 bytes, or install the 'TGS Menus' mod from this page.

Sonic Adventure Dx Cheat Engine

The menus haven't been updated for 60FPS, Tikal's theme starts playing after a sixth of a second, the title screen lasts 2.5 seconds and the character select lasts 10 seconds, the fading is also broken.

In the Dreamcast Version, X and Y buttons together would bring you to a Level Select, but in the PC version, the game strangely exits.

In the same section of code is a Level Select, though there's no known way of accessing these normally. The code to display the text was removed, though it still functions. The game mistakenly loads the player in 'Adventure' mode in the Action Stages without setting an Adventure Field to return to, so selecting the 'Quit' option from the pause menu simply puts you in Hedgehog Hammer (level 0).

SPR Task

Earlier versions of Sonic Adventure included a SPR Debugging feature displaying various functions. It's unknown if it can still be accessed, but some of the text still exists.

Japanese Level List

There is a Japanese level list in the main executable (pointer table at 50A250 in US PC sonic.exe), which is not referenced by any code.

Notable items include:

  • Hedgehog Hammer listed as プラクティス (Practice)
  • Three empty level slots listed as きのこ (Mushroom), ジャングル (Jungle), and 砂漠 (Desert)
  • Adventure Fields and Twinkle Circuit listed as empty strings

Free Movement Mode

There is a Free Movement mode that can be used to fly around, this is also in the Dreamcast version. It can be found by changing the Action ID to 87 for Sonic, 57 for Knuckles and 53 for Amy.

The controls are as follows:
Analog Stick = Move
Analog Stick + X = Move Up/Down
A = Exit Free Movement mode.
B = Go to the current character's start position.

Free Movement mode seems to be partially removed from the game. Big's Free Movement can be seen by setting his action to 59, but the only remaining feature of it being the way his arms move when pressing the buttons to move up or down. Tails and Gamma don't have free movement mode at all.

Leaving Free Movement mode puts the character in an action natural for the current stage. For example, in Icecap and Sand Hill the player will regain their board upon leaving free movement mode. This is the same for stages such as Perfect Chaos, which drops the player as Super Sonic.

Differences From Prior Versions

Sound

The Dreamcast and GameCube versions store music in .ADX files and sounds in .MLT archives. The PC version stores music in .WMA files and sounds in .DAT archives. This means music tracks no-longer loop and everything sounds lower quality. The voice clip's format also causes stutter, and some sound effects are too quiet.

Graphics

Lighting

Sonic adventure 2 xbox cheats

The way lighting works is different compared to the Dreamcast and GameCube versions. The GameCube version replaced the original palette based 'Lantern' engine with something more generic. The PC version's lighting engine is even more simplified. The player's lighting changes depending on the camera angle while level lighting is extremely bright. The PC version also ignores built-in vertex lighting that's not attached to the level model.

Textures

The textures are re-compressed into PVM files, thus making the PC version (and later versions based on it) have the worst-looking textures.

PC
  • Knuckles' Shovel Claw has lost its environment mapping.
  • Knuckles’ Maximum Heat attack aura is more broken.
  • The GameCube version had a water distortion effect possible using the GameCube's TEV system. The PC version removes this.
  • The PC version alters the way some textures are mirrored. Instead of a flag being set in part of a level model to flip the texture, the textures themselves are flipped. While this doesn't sound bad on paper, most flipped textures are squeezed into the resolution of the unflipped texture, resulting in mass quality loss.

Other

  • The Dreamcast and GameCube versions includes a check to ignore a model's material colours. For some reason, this check was removed in the PC version. This means many objects in the PC version has different colouring, like platforms in Hot Shelter being orange instead of gray.
  • The FMVs, surprisingly, are higher-quality. The original game's FMVs were 320×256 stretched to 640×480, whereas the 2004 PC FMVs are natively at 640×480. As a result, the 2004 PC version has the highest-quality FMVs and one of the things that can truly be marked as an improvement.

  • The same can't be said about the intro, though: While it's also natively in 640×480 without borders, it suffers from compression.

Stage Differences

Emerald Coast

  • The sea texture was changed.

Red Mountain

  • The clouds and lava are darker due to poor lighting.

  • The fog in act 1 has been made thicker.

Hot Shelter

  • The bridge's UVs were altered to make the textures look more washed-out.
  • Gamma's level has a transparency issue with the glass, which is odd as most transparency issues happened when the game was ported to the GameCube.

Other

  • The controls are much less sensitive than the Dreamcast and GameCube versions.
  • Assuming you have a powerful enough PC, the framerate isn't unstable anymore.
