General Changes

The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Basic debug mode (L+R in-game).
  • Runs at 50fps without any frameskip
  • 50/60Hz switcher does not work, the game runs at 50Hz regardless of the setting.
  • Uses the final title screen despite being older than the 10.8 build
  • Subtitles lack background, and many of the subtitles are unescaped, functioning additive color blending like the Mario Kart: Double Dash! demo build.
  • Two Player mode has XBOX HUD Elements, and black bar
  • Massive slowdown on 2P splitscreen levels
  • Team Chaotix uses Sonic level layouts most of the time, sometimes with functional goal rings
  • Audio is a mix of English and Japanese voices
  • Only the audio tracks from the E3 and TGS Builds are present (Seaside Hill, Rail Canyon, Bullet Station).
  • Unique sound effect for score counter at end.
  • Omega uses unfiltered voice clips.
  • FMVs show corruption on the bottom of the screen.
  • Various missing textures
  • Some objects don't use special pixel processing render states.
