Sonic Adventure DX (Preview) for the GameCube was released by Sonic Retro member drx on February 23, 2008. It's a direct port of the Dreamcast version of Sonic Adventure with debugging features enabled with a few changes done for the GameCube release. The date the disc image was created on is 2002/04/10.
- The title screen uses a 2D Sonic over the final's 3D rendered Sonic. Also, there is a small difference in the resolution, and the sky background isn't animated unlike the final.
- The save icon is rather simplistic in this version.
- Many Dreamcast assets are used, such as the VMU.
- Lost World has some changes done to geometry (Like the starting entrance) and some geometry from Dreamcast intact (The walls from the rivulet are thin instead of thick). The textures were changed too.
|Dreamcast||Preview (GC)||Final (PC)|
- The ring loss sound effect is much higher in pitch than normal, possibly unintentionally.
- Any music that was newly recorded for the final version, such as the Mission Start/Finish jingles, are not available on the disc. All the music data is exactly as it is from the Dreamcast version. All the music that was in the Dreamcast version, used or unused, is still in this build.
