Shadow the Hedgehog is a 2005 video game developed by Sega Studio USA, the former United States division of Sega's Sonic Team. Featuring the titular fictional character Shadow the Hedgehog from Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, the game was revealed at the March 2005 Walk of Game inauguration of Sonic, the series' main character. Shadow the Hedgehog is the third game (and the last in the Sonic series) developed by Sega Studio USA, which was merged back into Sega's Japanese division in early 2008.
If Direct3D back end is selected white stripes appear on the top and on the left of the screen while in-game. Fixed in newer revisions.
2 Player Mode
2P mode is unplayable because the right side of the screen is all messed up.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

The graph below charts the compatibility with Shadow the Hedgehog since Dolphin'srelease, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.
This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Windows 7 x64||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.5GHz||nVidia GeForce GTS 250||Plays almost perfectly. Some small graphical issues. Plays at full speed at 2x internal resolution. Sound stutters during cutscenes with Dsound backend, no stuttering with Xaudio, however sometimes the audio is a little bit too fast, which leaves some parts of cutscenes without sound. No other problems.||S1dology|
|Mac OS X 10.6.8||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13GHz||nVidia GeForce 9400M||Plays perfectly fine, but is really slow. Cutscenes are a nightmare. 2P graphics are fine but it runs at 5 FPS.||Ac|
|Windows Vista x64||Intel Pentium @ 2GHz||Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family||The introduction CGI cutscene plays perfect with a small amount of stutter on the sound. The menu lags and the sound is choppy, so listening to music via the options menu is a pain. The game itself is playable at about 15-20 FPS, and the cutscenes aren't TOO bad, but the sound on them plays faster than the cutscene itself, causing half of the cutscene to be silent.||Mchccjg12|
|Windows 7 x86||AMD Athlon II 4X 635 @ 3GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 480||Unplayable. 4X AA, 16X AA, 1920x1080 widescreen.||ALLEN2|
|^||Windows 8 x64||Intel Core i7-860 @ 2.8GHz||nVidia GeForce GT 440||Runs almost perfect. Cutscenes and their audio are sometimes not in sync, but other than that, runs at 100%.||miroppb|
|^||Windows XP x64||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.53GHz||ATI Radeon HD 3600||Plays fine, but the gameplay is slow (36-40 fps - 60-70% speed at 1x internal resolution). Cutscenes run at full speed in sync with the audio. The introductions in 2 Player mode somethimes get glitchy. Notably, the textures on the characters randomly get colored a mixture of their usual colors for a few moments during the levels (Sonic gets purple, Shadow gets brown etc.)||7th Scale|
|Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.67GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 295||Plays great, between 40-60 FPS depending on how much is going on (3x native resolution). Cutscene audio does go out of sync. Changing to DSP LLE fixes this, however the audio begins stuttering, and the framerate takes a big hit. Switching the video backend to OpenGL didn't fix the stripes around the top and left sides of the screen.||MongMaster|
