this was a real pain to get working on proton, because the launcher requires a specific ancient version of the JRE

but everything went swimmingly afterward

say what you want about it, but Sonic 4 Episode 1 is the only Sonic game released in like, the past 20 years that I still get occasional desires to replay.

Even Sonic Mania, it was alright, but I don't really want to pick it up again when the game starts out with such a slog and only picks up later.

@KS Mmmm, that sounds like a very significant "something" the game has going for it, then. 😮 Yes, do enjoy it!
