Sonic Megamix Mania - 2020 DEMO

By MegamixManiaTeam

Sonic Megamix Mania is a Sonic Mania mod for that recreates and reimagines the Classic Sonic Megamix Experience inside Sonic Mania. While previous versions of the mod tried to bring back original beta releases of Sonic Megamix. (by Stealth) This brand new rendition aims to be a completely fresh and new experience, building upon ideas and features of the older versions, pushing Sonic Mania to it's limits.

Play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Mighty and Shadow with brand new moves and abilities, and take on a familiar classic adventure.


  • New Move sets for all 5 Characters. Shadow The Hedgehog replaces Ray.
  • Unique Character Theming - Each Character has their own HUD, TitleCard and Music. (Such as 1UP Themes, Speed Shoes, and Invincibility.)
  • Compatibility with Amy Mania. (enable both mods and make sure Amy mania is on the top using the arrows to the right)

Please Note:

This mod is still a work in progress. Aspects are subject to change.

Please take a look at the "README" inside of the main project folder for more information.

Playing the demo was just just a lot of fun, the characters are great to control, the areas are beautiful with great landscapes, for sure it is the mod that I most hope will be finished, because only with these acts I can see the great potential that this mod may have in the future.

Congratulations to everyone involved, you all did a great job!

I'm using a PS4 controller and it keeps asking me to assign the C button. I tried using Steam's controller config but it doesn't show anything for a C button. Any help for this would be great.

TehMonkeyB @ 2020-10-26 16:55:04

also I REALLY look forward to seeing what you come up with but one thing.... could you make it compatible with the modernsonicboost mod? like if you use the modernsonicboost mod it changes the title screen and changes sonic to modern sonic and adds the boost to sonic!

Frost4Hire @ 2020-12-24 19:56:57

Well I think that would be really hard making a mod that changes alot of things in the game compatible with a mod that gives 1 character 1 ability and a sprite change.

TehMonkeyB @ 2020-10-26 16:55:09

but idk or you can switch mighty with modern sonic or put it into entirely new charactor slot! so you can still play as classic sonic but because its megamix heres a few ideas if you could add to modern sonic! one: the stomp, its basicly the hammer drop but has a bigger hit box to hit more enimies, two: the slide, it allows you to go through very small gaps.

TehMonkeyB @ 2020-10-26 16:56:05

this is an idea you dont have to do this

TehMonkeyB @ 2020-10-26 16:56:27

oof that took at least 10 minutes

Soni-Switch @ 2020-10-26 18:37:56

God, the new movesets are so good that I really hope all of them get seperate releases to be used in otherwise base game in the future.

FawazThespeed @ 2020-10-27 02:45:48

Man i love the lightspeed dash in 2d sonic game

also for future updates can you make a configuartion for the light speed dash animation like change the animation to spring twrill from the spring ya know

but overall its really cool i've been waiting for this since i cant play the first version because of the update of sonic mania. by da wae thx for updating this mod

RadioTails @ 2020-10-27 04:16:56

So this mod uses keypress D as button C. I had to make a seperate JoyToKey setting just for this mod to stop Debug Mode from activating.

Also, how do you swap characters?

JazzOrChamp @ 2020-11-01 12:15:07

Could you explain how you did that?

ClockworkBastard @ 2020-11-13 14:01:10

Dude, learn how to google...

You download the program that let you set any keyboard button to your controller (But I'm afrain you could not use Xinput controller like Xbox one)

Then by trial and error you understand what the hell weird controller setup the mod is using. Then set everything as you wish using JoyToKey

protoman2 @ 2020-10-27 11:45:55

Wow. Just wow. I just finished this mod and I can definitely say I'm blown away by what was presented so far. Hope you guys finish this mod and the soundtrack my God the soundtrack is a banger. Kudos to the composers for making a wonderful soundtrack cause I need it in my library right now! 11/10

OVA-Mode @ 2020-10-27 15:51:36

Has anybody else had a problem getting this to run?

Frost4Hire @ 2020-12-24 19:58:31

Could you explain how you set this up?

Bluestreak @ 2020-10-27 19:44:42


Just Yes. That's all I can say.

CaptainFrance @ 2020-10-27 20:36:57

Stages are great. characters are great. wish there were standalone mods for them to use them elsewhere. A+

TheRockingBlurr @ 2020-10-30 07:21:36

Probably the one thing I was specifically looking forward to in this contest, and it was great! Hope to see the finished project one day!!

Giovanni @ 2020-10-31 12:46:19

WOW. This is one hell of an example of how much Sonic Mania modding has progressed.

Everything included here is amazingly polished. The levels are vast and feel like they've truly been designed with every character in mind. The new art is amazing, and the soundtrack is filled with absolute bangers. It really feels like playing an all new Sonic game.

FlamesBoom5628 @ 2020-11-01 14:04:43

I love those coolest mod ever!

Keni_Rainseeker @ 2020-11-02 00:17:42

How do I make this work with an xbox 360 controller? Pressing X just goes into debug.

ClockworkBastard @ 2020-11-09 22:56:09

Screw xbox controllers, use controller emulator as I mentioned below. Maybe if you don't have not Xinput controller (Dinput) - it could be way harder to do it. In that case I'd google something like this — "how to change xbox controller layout|mapping in game that do not allow that"

Have a nice day

Is it possible to bind C to a controller? I couldn't work it out.

ClockworkBastard @ 2020-11-09 22:53:53

Hi. I see that it's a major issue by now. I can have "C" button on my Xinput controller, but I hate the buttons placement. Original sMania don't support Xinput gamepad configuration AFAIK so I will use a Dinput gamepad. I'll set to it the odd default button configuration by Xpadder - a keyboard to controller emulator, and do play the great mod as good as I want it to, while waiting a project to live on.

Xpadder is not free, but there is bunch of free ones that do exactly the same

ClockworkBastard @ 2020-11-09 16:21:59

No WAY! Dude :(

I've got this message then my contols are set to "defaults" Looks like defaults for you KP_LEFT KP_5 and others

While I use some emulation-controls preferred by me for about 15 years (WASD+JKLUIOP+NB+Y whatever, Connectix Virtual Game Station made me love it, now it's forever)

I will fight somehow, but it's a bug IMO

Great MODhack! Wish you best luck in that. Have a good day also

ClockworkBastard @ 2020-11-09 16:46:33

Gotta go fast!

This is odd and embarresent. I thought the unset keys for player 2 makes a bug and set 'em ti Arrows and additional keyboard numbers. The result is totally the same!

Oh and also the window I had sent is the second of two! Here's the first —

Unknownwill @ 2020-11-23 08:55:26

Way past cool!

Frost4Hire @ 2020-12-24 20:01:47

This whole mod is amazing in my opinion, from the menu screen to the new movesets. And the fact that it's compatible with amy mania is just fantastic. I think Megamix won for sure.

hubanovbgn @ 2020-12-29 12:31:25

One of the best mods I have ever played for sure! Thumbs up!

SONICBOY90 @ 2022-02-03 14:07:17

The game just crashes for me.

sonicfan23 @ 2022-04-27 18:44:21

so you're that person who comments on something late too?

sonicfan23 @ 2022-04-27 18:42:28

i am that one guy who comments on something super late
