Fixing Download Problem
 
If you have downloaded the game and it later only recognizes you have the trail version here is a list of things that should fix this problem
1. Start up Sonic
2. check to make sure it says "download full version"
3. Choose to re-download it straight from the menu of Sonic
4. After it has downloaded it will ask you to play now or continue
5. Press continue and the Unlock Trail Version should be removed from the menu allowing you to play the full version
6. You will most likely have to do this every time you load the game up but it will only take a minute because it will just re-unlock the game rather than download the whole thing over again

Also i believe this works with a lot of other games on the arcade that don't recognize the full version so repeat the above process just in case.

Its a common problem when you change xbox's but not hard drives.

all my sega games do this except for alter beast which is new. i was goin to go off my nut before i seen this, but i have a new xbox, but also a new hard drive so it could be either one.

new xbox or not, seeing as they are attached to your live profile and console id i dont think it should make a difference. so it should be fine playing with either. this is just an MS goof up.

thanks for the info by the way op.

Tried this once, and had to download it to my MU, since this didn't work. Each time I run out of storage devices to download this game to, I have to delete the game from all those storage devices.
EDIT: I misread it and thought I was supposed to do Play Now. Deleted the game for nothing.:mad:

I suppose some people would want a permanent fix so you could always call Microsoft and have them help you.

download problem
 
Unfortunately this solution doesn't work for me. Ever since I switched my old harddrive to a new 250GB one it just keeps saying I have the trial version. No matter how often I try to download it. I even cleared my cache.

Looks like I'll be stuck with a game with 5 GS on it and no chance of completing it....:mad:

You'll never see this I'm sure, but all you have to do is do the license transfer process.

With that feature, there's no need for this workaround anymore for some older Sega titles with the screwed up DRM that kept you in demo mode on a system other than the one the game was bought on (Or had the license transferred to after being repaired by MS).

So all you had to do was transfer your licenses and your game would be restored to full working order.

I had it work by downloading again and hitting CONTINUE not play now.

But other games didn't work as well...Golden Axe, Double Dragon and Streets of Rage 2 are the only ones I have noticed so far.

Anyway I did a license transfer and then redownloaded from my download history and the game works without the workaround.

Was annoying till I figured it out.
