Sonic Origins Plus/Bugs

From Sonic Retro

Back to: Sonic Origins Plus.

The bugs in this list apply specifically to Sonic Origins Plus. Bugs that are known to also occur in the base game should go here.

General bugs

Game Gear audio

Stereo audio is off sync for all of the Game Gear games in the collection, leading to an echoed sound output that doesn't match the original hardware's stereo capabilities. On some systems, such as the Nintendo Switch, it is possible to alleviate the issue by setting the system's sound output settings to mono.

Partially fixed in v2.0.1. Stereo audio is still wrong, but a "Mono Audio" option was added to the Options menu[1].

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Erratic Special Stage walking animation for Amy

Amy appears to walk much faster than other characters in Sonic 2's Special Stage as animation frames are skipped. The graphics exist in the game's data and are technically referenced in code, but a mistake in the algorithm means they are not rendered in the correct order.

Fixed in v2.0.1[1].

No "Super Amy" text

The game does not announce that Super Amy has been unlocked when all Chaos Emeralds have been collected as Amy.

Not fixed in any version.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

"Clear" icon palette error

The updated "Clear" icon for save files with all Super Emeralds collected that is used when the Plus content has been installed has a palette error in which Tails flickers in time with the emeralds.

Not fixed in any version.

Prolong Lava Reef Act 2's Knuckles cutscene as Hyper Amy

While player input is supposed to be disabled during the Knuckles cutscene in Lava Reef Zone Act 2, it is still possible for the player to use Hyper Amy's Hammer Throw attack during the cutscene. If this is done while the camera is scrolling upwards, the camera will be forced to scroll back down, thus prolonging the cutscene. There is no benefit to doing this as the game's timer will still run and the player's Rings will still drain.

Not fixed in any version.

No "Super/Hyper Amy" text

The game does not announce that Super Amy has been unlocked when all Chaos Emeralds have been collected as Amy. Additionally, the cutscene shown after collecting all Super Emeralds incorrectly announces "Super Amy" has been unlocked instead of "Hyper Amy".

Not fixed in any version.
