Dolphin Forum thread
The fan-favorite Sonic Riders series returns in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity with a whole new form of chaotic racing by manipulating gravity itself! These gravity-altering powers can transform walls into tracks, or create a "black hole" that sucks you through for the ultimate speed boost, and allows for an entirely new way to gain a leg up on your competitors. From illuminated highways in a bustling metropolis to the outer reaches of space, you will race at the speed of light on 16 dynamic courses. It is the fifth racing game in the Sonic the Hedgehog racing series, following Sonic Drift, Sonic Drift 2, Sonic R and its predecessor, Sonic Riders.
GameCube Controller Conflict
Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes at the same time. If a GameCube controller is being emulated or is connected via the Official GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, the GameCube controller will be prioritized over Wii Remote for its assigned port and the Wii Remote will be assigned to another port or lose most of its functionality, typically only reacting to the Home button being pressed. Use the mapped GameCube Controller or disable it to resolve this.
Controller Map Overlap
Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.
If Gravity Dive or Gravity Control is used, a purple afterglow remains visible until it either gets replaced by a new one or if the map or cutscene unloads. Refer issue 6786.
The game features prerendered video cutscenes at several points in story mode, as well as when booting up the game. Since 5.0-4703 the cutscenes will not render at all, only playing the sound that comes with them and leaving a black screen instead. Refer issue 11164. Fixed by 5.0-15294.
