Then the lights come on for the boss.

Normally, the foreground palettes are dimmed when the player reaches the end of Titanic Monarch Zone Act 1 and fights the Crimson Eye sub-boss. However, when playing Mania Mode as Sonic and Tails, a second player can make Tails enter the boss arena before Sonic, causing the palettes to dim outside the arena. Should Sonic then enter the arena right when the game attempts to restore the palettes, the player will fight the sub-boss with the lights on.

Not fixed in any version.

Act 2

Phantom Egg softlocks upon defeat

In the initial release of the Steam version, defeating the Phantom Egg on a "No Save" game with all the Chaos Emeralds collected would softlock the game on a black screen.

Fixed in RC 1.03.0831[1].
