    Well, color me impressed! I did not think this hack would ever exist, but it does! However, while I did not play much of it, I already have to give it a pass.
    When you play with 4 different characters at once (or at least, with 3 AIs), the game REEEALLY starts to lag. So much that it's not funny anymore. I can not imagine how LZ underwater looks like.
    Also, I decided to actually connect 4 "controllers" to test out multiplayer functionality, only to find out that Player 3 also controls Player 2. (And I triple checked this was not a mistake on my end.)
    Furthermore, if Tails grabs another Tails while flying, things get very glitchy.
    I was planning on Netplaying this with a few friends of mine, but since I found so many issues so quickly, I simply can not recommend this hack.

    This thread is months old and no reply was made here and I decided to bump the thread, so...

    Yeah, this hack was great and I watched Razor and Zenon's gameplay video of it, but when I downloaded this hack and decide to have fun too yesterday night (24/07/2021), I have found two major bugs:

    No matter how you play as someone other than Sonic, it's always been SONIC has somehow always took the credit of passing every act, every zone. It seems that you forgot this thing.

    The obese Sonic image is originally from my YouTube gameplay video (see below) and "SONIC'S NIGHTMARE!" image made by ScoobyCool at DeviantArt.
    But I felt this might make Sonic a lazy, lousy, obese and credit-stealing cheater


    And when you have faster beat Spring Yard Zone Act 2 and collecting 50 rings and more, and you haven't entered the Special Stage ring at the end of the act and a CPU have entered it, resulting in ILLEGAL INSTRUCTION ERROR crash.


    ... and well, peoples such of Razor & Zenon has already recorded their gameplay of your hack and put it on YouTube, I decide to do so, and I enjoyed editing the video (with a special video editing app at my phone), so here's the result:



    Next time you'll shouldn't forget the mistake and the crash as mentioned above.
