Surprised there isn't an achievement for fully building the Sonic statue in Casinopolis for depositing 5000 rings.

Mastered. Hammer Fall was the only one to give me trouble.

To fix the crash when winning a chao race emblem, go to Quick Menu>Core Options>Video>Delay Frame Swapping=ON
TrashCity 1 Jan 2024 23:50
Weird, I did what GoJamBe said and my game still crashed. Saphire and Emerald was fine it crashes on Amethyst for me
TrashCity 2 Jan 2024 00:28
Okay so all the races worked fine besides, Amethyst. It crashed but you can hit random buttons and the screen will pop up and if you exit even with saving it you won't get an emerald for the race. I found out if you go for the Amethyst race and obtain any new emerald it will save over so if you leave it counts for the race.

I might be spoiled from the gamecube releases, but how do you actually save your chao data? I notice if I deposit him into the (vmu?) then it saves, and I can take him out next time I go, but there’s no way I have to do that every single time I go into the chao garden do I? Idk if it’s supposed to auto save and my settings are messed up, or if that’s really just what you have to do every time.
megamanxlegends 2 Jan 2024 23:08
The game is supposed to save when you leave the Chao Garden though the exit door. If you pause the game and hit Exit, then the game won't save.
JRodslegend 2 Jan 2024 23:48
Yeah I’m leaving through the elevator each time, I can even go and play another level and I’ll come back and all I got are two new eggs and no chao. The game itself saves fine though.
I’m just using the default Dreamcast core, I’m not sure if it required extra downloads to save the chao data, or if that’s handled on the same pack. Just wondering why it won’t save now
megamanxlegends 3 Jan 2024 01:14
I doubt this is the answer, but do you have enough space on your VMU to save your Chao data?
JRodslegend 3 Jan 2024 01:36
Well that’s the thing, I don’t even know what a VMU is. This is only the second game I’ve played on the DC core, and first one is PSO. So if the VMU is something I needed to download separately for the core to function properly, then I need to do more research. But if it’s basically just the memory card that comes with the core, it shouldn’t be out of space if I only have 2 games on it lol
JRodslegend 3 Jan 2024 01:41
Also worth noting, I know when I played the re-releases on steam and gamecube, any time I would leave the chao garden, it would automatically say “saving chao data” or something along those lines. Nothing like that happens in this version, I just go through the elevator and appear out the bottom. So I’m wondering if I just didn’t do something to start the process
megamanxlegends 3 Jan 2024 01:48
The VMU is the memory card for the Dreamcast. One VMU has 200 blocks of space. I can’t really think of anything. If you’re able to put your Chao inside the VMU thing, then you should have enough space. Not to mention, when you enter the Chao Garden for the first time, Chao data is created. The only thing I can think of is that your Chao data for some reason is being saved to a different memory card. May have to mess with some core settings. Sorry I couldn’t help you.
JRodslegend 3 Jan 2024 02:22
Well, strange update. If I start a new game in slot “B” and enter the chao garden, everything saves, and when I leave I get a “now saving” in the top right corner. When I go back to my main game I never get a “now saving”
I have no idea what’s going on but I’ll try deleting my game in slot A and see if restarting fixes the problem
JRodslegend 3 Jan 2024 02:50
It doesn’t. So even if I delete the entire VMU in Port A and start a brand new game, the Chao Garden just will not save. However Port B-D all save it perfectly. Wish I knew why, guess it’s not a big deal unless playing from Port B creates any achievement issues. I know I’ve read about a few games that have that restriction
FinalFrantasy 3 Jan 2024 03:03
If you're having trouble getting your VMU Chao Adventure stat upgrades to save, go into the options and rename your chao. For some reason this is the only way I can get the game to save my progress
JRodslegend 3 Jan 2024 03:16
I’m not gonna lie I just spent the last 10min trying everything I could in the Chao garden and I have no idea where the options menu is or how you renamed it
FinalFrantasy 3 Jan 2024 04:13
Sorry, JRods. I legit didn't read your comments before the one I posted. That wasn't directed at you D: just general advice for an issue I was having. The only way I know to rename chao is to walk them to that machine in the corner and drop them in. Then you have to close the game after saving and boot up the VMU core and launch your VMU save.
TrashCity 6 Jan 2024 00:15
#M100 This game is by in my top 25 of all time, Awesome game! Don't do what I did and save big the cat and chao races till the end, I got a little burnt out and didn't come back for a year lost my save had to do it all over again, good thing I love this game so I had zero issue with it!

If you figure out the fishing tricks, it's not that bad. I also just grinded at the start of the level four enemies at Emerald Coast then feed them all to my chao, while giving him the fruits as I could come and go. It didn't take me as song as I thought it would to get the emblems for the races!
FinalFrantasy 8 Jan 2024 04:30
Aaaand mastered! Still one of my favorite games ever! First time going for all 130 emblems, mainly never wanted to do the chao stuff lol.. But honestly the VMU made it into a breeze.
Thank you for this set!

Anyone mind explaining why this game is under "sandbox"? Glorified city-shaped level select doesn't really place it in the same class as GTA.
