General Bugfix Mod

A Mod for Sonic 3 A.I.R

This mod aims to fix a bunch of original game bugs (as well as a few palette inconsistencies...), some of them being minor and others being not-so minor. 

Special thanks to Fred Bronze and his Sonic 3 Unlocked blog. Without him, this mod would not exist. 

Also thanks to the Sonic 3 Complete team for a few of the palette fixes.

List of Fixes:
  • Restored and properly colored Data Select Robotnik's bald shine
  • Fixed the invalid palette entry for the pool at the start of Hydrocity 1
  • Carnival Night 2's water palette has been tweaked to fix the coloration of objects
  • Fixed a small palette error seen when Sonic's first Launch Base 2 boss is destroyed
  • The leading character now properly rebounds off of the Big Arm boss after landing the final hit
  • The green pixels on Flying Battery's clouds have been removed
  • Fixed a small palette error seen when returning from the outside of Flying Battery
  • Restored the missing head frame for Flying Battery 2's second boss
  • Restored the missing Robotnik 'defeat' frame on the Lava Reef 2 boss
  • Mecha Sonic's palette is now consistent throughout all of his main game appearances 
  • Balloon Park's bumpers now use the correct palette
  • All of the flags in the Balloon Park background now face the same way
  • Reverted Chrome Gadget's palette to an older one that allows more background detail to be seen
  • Knuckles is no longer pink on the Competition results screen to better reflect changes made in A.I.R.
  • Objects that use the player palette's green no longer turn grey underwater

Other recommended mods: 

Multiplayer Grayscale Fix
CNZ Button Replacement

    If we're fixing sprite transparency issues, the spikes in Flying Battery have green spots where they're supposed to be transparent. It would be rad to see that patched up.

    You don't have to add eggman burned in lava reef act 2. That's part of the original.
    Can you add another zip file next to pinkknux results?

    Always loved general bugfixes patches from fans, from some reason. Guess Bethesta is the blame for that. Thanks!
    However, personally i don't quite see how changing Eggman's glasses to look even less like glasses is a fix, but i digress.

    Nice mod! Sonic 3 unlocked is certainly a good way to find fixes like this. If I may ask, do you have plans to add the Eggman flying away sprite to the LBZ2 end scene at any point in the future?
