I find it really annoying that (upon completing a Zone/Act) I am taken back to the level select screen by default. I feel that this breaks the continuity of the game, especially seeing as I can then go back and re-play a level in order to improve my score/have another crack at that Chaos Emerald Challenge.

Obviously I know about the Play the Next Act button, seen below. The problem is that if I don't remember to hit that button, the game quits out to the level select screen. What I would like to do is automate this, so the only way out is to quit via the pause menu. That way I wont have to remember to hit this button every time.

I'm playing on PC, and I've been through the game's configuration settings, but they only really provide some simple graphics/resolution stuff and keybind settings.

Is there a config file that I can edit, or failing that a game mod or tool that exposes this functionality?

    @SteveKB - they make the game more about time, and less about exploring, solving puzzles/obstacles and killing badniks. I never liked the time aspect of the games, so I didn't enjoy the change. – Robotnik Aug 7 '13 at 21:02

Unfortunately there is no config file that you can modify to allow this functionality. And there are no mods that will allow you to change this aspect of the game. The best way to go to the next act is by pressing the next act button.

  • Well, I'll accept for now, although I hold out hope :/ – Robotnik Jul 6 '15 at 12:59
