Fixed Forced Hard Mode

A Mod for Sonic Adventure 2

Complete the game using Hard Mode layouts

Edits the Hard Mode layouts so that the game is completable from a new save file with the Always Use Hard Mode Layouts mod enabled. Upgrades and necessary Lost Chao objects are re-added to stages, and slight adjustments are made to subvert obstacles that require upgrades from later in the story.

This mod does not force Hard Mode itself. It also does not yet fix Route 101 and Route 280 continuing to use their original layouts for each level which is good because M3/M4 might be impossible.

    When you use this mod and the Super Hard Mode mod, should we also check the Code that you reference, or do the mods already force it on?

    Doesn't the existence of the "Have All Upgrades" code make these changes redundant?
