    Regarding the exclusive sound test cheats in Sonic Mania Plus:

    Is there anyway to get these working in the save modes of Mania Mode.

    For example, I'd like to play a Save files as Ray or Mighty in Mania Mode but have the Encore mode graphics. Is this possible?

    Seems there is a new "Public community beta branch" on Steam. Obviously it's not public yet, but since the Denuvo testing branch hasn't been updating, maybe SEGA are removing Denuvo as they have been with other titles recently.

    Something seems off here. If this was just them removing the Denuvo (which would be the obvious situation) there wouldn't be a need for a "Public community beta branch". It'd just be a quick patch of the exe wouldn't it? Likewise, the Sonic Mania DLC was changed recently yet the "Sonic Mania Content" depot is still untouched for the past 8 months.

    Maybe I'm just paranoid but doing "bugfixes" out of the blue for a game that (aside from Denuvo complaining) doesn't need it is too big a fish to swallow.

    Edit: Looking up Yakuza and Yakuza 0 on steamdb reveals that "Lab42" have shown up and made "community test branches" in these games as well. I think Sega may have contracted them to get the PC stuff in order.

    Edit 2: That seems to be mostly the case. Sonic Forces has recent updates for it's DLC but no test branch. Not ruling out new stuff for Mania but yeah, Sega clearly wants to get it's steam stuff in order.
