This has happened to me ever since I installed a new GTX 670 video card.

Ok, I fixed my problem via an answer on another thread. Try going into your Sonic Generations folder and deleting all the .cfg files. Then run the config tool again and save and launch the game.

Do verify interigity of game cache and u should be fine

It was merely a switchable graphics detection issue at release but as they've been "patching" it the problem has escalated. It's a huge annoyance to switch between my laptop's native screen and an external screen, for every switch takes 10 minutes to fiddle with the settings.

Have you switched to a different video card recently? I had this problem when I went from a Nvidia card to an AMD one and I did what Wreck said above, and it worked. Be aware that the config tool must recognize the card you're using at the moment.

Same problem here. Got it to work when it uses my integrated GPU; which, isnt too bad for this game, but... forcing it to use my nvidia gpu is what is causing the problem even though it worked fine before. I did a clean install of it. e.g. deleted the steam folder for it.

i had the same problem i just stated the games settings instead of the game and change the video settings untill it worked

Oh I know how to fix this! go to (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sonic Generations) Than delete GraphicsConfig.cfg and rerun the Configuration Tool. Have fun :)
