In Sonic Adventure DX: Director´s Cut Dr. Eggman is up to his old tricks again, but in this special Director's Cut version, there are a whole lot more of them to trip up Sonic and his pals. Get ready to go on 50 new adventures in the all-new Mission Mode as you strive to dismantle the evil genius' plans to rule the world. There are 12 exciting Bonus Games to unlock in the form of classic Sonic Game Gear titles. Whether you play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, Big the Cat, or E102 Gamma, you'll get a unique adventure every time as each character has their own deep storyline and unique type of gameplay. Don't forget to visit your favorite Chao in the Chao Garden where you can take a break from saving the world and pit your Chao against others in a variety of tournaments.
Blurry Distant Textures
Since, textures in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut will appear blurry in the distance at internal resolutions above native, due to false positives in Arbitrary Mipmap Detection. Since , this setting can be disabled to work around the issue. However, if any "mip trick" effects are used by the game, they will not work correctly.
In prior versions, the only workaround is to enable GPU Texture Decoding.
Screen Freeze in Dr. R. Mean Bean Machine
Concerns only the unlockable Game Gear game "Dr. Robotniks Mean Bean Machine": When playing in story mode, the screen often freezes randomly for a couple of seconds, but game play continues. Happens with both OpenGL and Direct 3D renderers.

No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.
The graph below charts the compatibility with Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut since Dolphin'srelease, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.
This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Mac OS X 10.6.8||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 9400M||Very laggy, 20-30FPS, but otherwise accurate emulation||Ac|
|Windows 7||AMD Phenom II 720 BE @ 3.2GHz||ATI Radeon HD 4850||Working perfect||ultramann|
|Windows 7||AMD Phenom II 965 @ 3.65GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti||Works great, but crashes randomly and save states don't work. Play the PC version instead.||AgainstYourThought|
|Mac OS X 10.7.2||Intel Core i7-2675QM @ 2.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6750M||Smooth.||jedivulcan|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-2430M @ 2.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M||Looks beautiful with higher resolutions and anti aliasing. However, doing this makes the frame rate drop. Runs smoothly on lower settings. Couldn't handle DSP LLE, but runs fine with DSP HLE. If your not playing this on a laptop (like me, heh) I am positive that you can handle the higher settings||theredpikmin|
|Mac OS X 10.7.4||Intel Core i7-2675QM @ 2.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6750M||Still smooth. Works great.||jedivulcan|
|Mac OS X 10.7.4||Intel Core i5-2435M @ 2.4GHz||Intel HD Graphics 3000||20FPS. The game runs slow. Unplayable.||jedivulcan|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 640||There is an issue concerning invisible text when speaking to people and interacting with the monitors. Adjusting the Texture Cache Slider does nothing to make the text visible again. Switching to Direct3D could have fixed the problem, but I don't remember if that worked and that backend has worse slowdown as well. The graphics don't work properly without EFB copies set to texture. Game runs with slowdown to 50FPS but with OpenGL it's a bit faster, but it could be my CPU since others are not having issues with slowdown.||Yugix|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 640||The issue with invisible text is persistent on some screens on the city adventure field, and now the HUD seems be invisible as well in these instances, including the pause menu. The levels that are effected are Emerald Coast part two, and the Egg Carrier adventure field after the sky deck outside. Outside of those areas, the issue doesn't exist elsewhere no longer. The game runs at fullspeed with some very minor slowdown here and there that mainly happens with a bunch of stuff on screen. Direct3D is much worse with the invisible HUD and text issue so use OpenGL.||Yugix|
|Windows 8.1||Intel Core i7-2600K @ 4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970||Game runs full speed as far as I've played on both the D3D and OGL backends at 4xIR and no extra effects added. Text is still invisible in areas of the game but the majority seems to be present (only really tested under the OGL backend); this can be annoying if using the Japanese voices in conjunction with English text depending on when the text decides to not appear and how important said text is. Those who understand the language they've selected will do fine and, as I've said, the game is essentially fully playable under either backend using this build.||TehGuy|
