    This isn't the way this is 'supposed' to be done, but it works.

    The enclosed file is a replacement sonic.exe, and goes in the same folder

    If you want to know what I did:
    I changed the opcode "inc [register]" at 0x37572 to "ret", and at 0x37587 replaced the opcode with another "ret" and nop'ed the leftover bytes. This effectively shuts off analog stick 2. The camera rotate buttons still work though. Enjoy

    Could this be implemented as a feature in SADXTweaker? I'd prefer not to overwrite my already-edited EXE in case I've screwed anything up.

    Thanks a ton for this! I use a ChillStream controller and SADX gives me an unbelievable amount of shit for it. Now I'll be able to stand still without the camera spinning around uncontrollably! :D

    Dude: thanks for letting me know which version the addresses were for :P (EU)

    Tweaker: um, sure. I'll have to make a new part for this and removing the CD check from the US ver.

    This is pretty cool, I tried it out this morning.

    One other thing that would be cool is if you could make it so that Sonic wasn't restricted to the 8 directions a keyboard is able to move him in. It feels odd playing with an analogue stick, but still being restricted. I realise that this may not be possible or may be outwith your ability, I just think it would be a good feature.

    What if we don't have a Xbox360 controller?

    Then don't download it? It doesn't matter regardless all it does is turn off the right analog stick camera mode.

    I've made a nice little patcher that works with both the EU and US EXEs.

    If you have that problem with any controller, this will fix it.

    Okay, here's something weird...
    I tried SADX with my Logitech Dual Action controller (DualShock clone), and strangely enough, the right analog stick can't rotate the camera left or right. This happened with my unedited (as far as I know) US EXE and the EU cracked EXE.
