you have to delete the GraficsConifig.cfg (in Steam/SteamApps/common/sonic generations) and then start theconfig tool again and change the grafics options like you want too

**IF when you try to run Sonic Generations you get a weird black box with a "Critical Error! the detected configuration does not does not match your current hardware. Please re-run the configuration tool" error message, I have a fix for you.**

Follow these steps and your game will run good as new as it did before it started messing if it never ran before ._. *cough*

1) Run Sonic Generations from the Steam Library (just to have it cached as a recent activity even if the error pops up)

2) Delete the "GraphicsConfig.cfg" file found in "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\sonic generations"

3) Look at the Nvidia (or whatever you video processor is) control panel and add Sonic Generations as a program to customize

4) Click "Restore" after you added it so that it would revert to the default settings

5) Return to the Steam Library and instead of clicking "Play Sonic Generations", click "Configure"

6) Click "Graphics Configuration" and look at the options

7) I noticed that all the quality settings was on "Low". Set both the Shadow Quality and Reflection Quality on "High"

8) Make the Configuration window full screen so you can click the "Save and Exit" button at the bottom

9) Run Sonic Generations

I'm not sure if steps 3-4 are required but, if you have Nvidia, I would definitely do them. I'm not sure how the steps would work under any other video processors control panel..sorry :( It should work though. If not, let me know and I will keep digging to try to find a fix under multiple situations.

It's a gem of a game and it would be a shame to not enjoy it. I've been trying to make this thing work for months. Seriously, MONTHS. Let me know if it fixed your problem

Try to spread the word too if it does work because this problem is seriously popping up everywhere. I'd be glad if I fixed it lol

i know how to fix it. first reinstall sonic generations (if you modded it in any way)
2nd download the demo
3rd run the demo once to make sure it works
4th copy the demo's files but click "let me chose which files" or something like that
5th keep the full's main game exe, and the cpk files
6th spread the word

so..I uninstall it completely and reinstall it again?
Lil-G Sep 10, 2013 @ 7:11pm 
if you installed mods just download the main game exe
Lil-G Sep 10, 2013 @ 7:12pm 
unless you modded the cpk files directly, you shouldn't have to reinstall the whole game
