Running 64-bit Win7.  Appears repeatedly then segfaults, regardless of privileges and compatibility mode.  Damn it GS, this looks teh secks but I really can't be bothered to boot Ubuntu just now >_>

As I mentioned earlier in #soniccenter, this is due to your wacky keyboard that presents a gamepad device with no axes. I'm going to take a look at the code and figure out why it's crashing in this case. (It should just ignore the axes.)

The system requirements make me lol, but I'm going to d/l this just for S&Gs to soo what GS is trying to pull now...

*edit* Am I wrong or is this just Sonic 2 with an HQ filter and a lense flair, and then some browning screen filter? :\

Ding ding ding, we have a winner! :P

That's the point of Gens/GS S2HD Edition. It's a spoof of Sonic 2 HD, which is so horribly mismanaged etc.

Yeah but it would be cool if it was ever finished.

And I'd also like to point out that actually adding certain effects like those into an emulator for use with any game could actually be pretty cool.
