The Greatest Hits version of Sonic Heroes is a fan-made hack for the said title of the game that parodies the Greatest Hits release of Spyro: Year of the Dragon released for PS1.

This modification contains a number of code edits with more music attached to levels and with gameplay enhancements. Team Rose's levels were also modified to become extended and Amy and Espio were both given Light Dash techniques to allow themselves to pass through dangerous pits where rings are located to move onto the far side of un-reachable obstacles. Earlier in June 2017, Muzzarino planned to create the special and announced it on the Heroes Hacking Discord channel. The other tool was created using C# by Sewer56lol at a request of the creator of the mod which would give players a few configurable options such as default teams for the Tutorial and Super Hard for 1P mode, resizable window support, field of view and an option to toggle new and old tornado jump techniques for Espio and Amy.[1]

For the executable and the launcher config tool, extract the executable archive and place configuration and the modified executable in the game directory located in /SONICHEROES. For the other things, extract them into the \SONICHEROES\dvdroot\ directory.

The following items go into the directories:

  1. Texture mods - /dvdroot/textures
  2. Level layouts and one archives - /dvdroot
  3. Music - /bgm
  4. Geometry Collisions - /collisions

Alternative Music

Inspired by Super Smash Bros. Melee, there is a function that will allow the ability to change music for all single player levels except for boss levels. However, alternative audio files are only loaded when buttons are pressed on the keyboard.

To use alternative music instead of the stage's normal music, press and hold X and D on your keyboard before the loading screen and then release after the level's done loading. Do the same thing again if you wish to disable alternative music for the stage.
