Comparing videos of Generations PC and Generations console side by side, and then comparing videos of this side by side with Unleashed console, and Unleashed vs Generations videos in general, I'd like to bring up another minor point of discussion:
1) The PC version of Generations is in general slightly darker with more well-defined dark shades. This is likely due to differences in the renderer, alongside with what I still believe to be framerate-based post-processing and shaders (Bloom in a -lot- of games are calculated/added/decayed based on framerate, for example, so a higher base framerate means things need to be adjusted, and maybe Devil's Details didn't get it as right as they could have to remain true to the console look)
2) The overall art direction in Generations is much more vibrant/whimsical than in Unleashed, as the former is a throwback to the bright pastels of Sonic's younger days, while the latter tries for some real-world looks. (Obviously Rooftop Run is a great reference for what I mean)
3) Apotos in this test release is darker, slightly less contrasty and in general... a lot less 'yellow' (for lack of a better descriptor) than Unleashed footage. Moreso than I believe the differences in 1) could account for.
Are you planning on tweaking shaders/post-processing to bring it a little closer to how it looks in the original, as well as to sit better with the overall saturation of colors in Generations, or is that outside the scope of the project?

Also, the music track used in this is wrong. I believe that is the music when you are in the adventure field, rather than the actual stage for it?
It's the correct song. It uses two separate songs for act 1 and act 2. It even had its own boosting version, but since I replaced the collection song I couldn't make that play.
edit: Oh snap, you're absolutely right. Wrong music in my video, then
Actually, wait, I mean.. I was uh, testing out a music replacement mod. Yeah, that's it. Totally. :E
