Emerald Coast - A Mod for Sonic Adventure 2

This is the first ever fully custom action stage for SA2, a port of Emerald Coast from the PC version of Sonic Adventure DX. The level replaces City Escape.

The main geometry was converted to SA2's format by a program I wrote. This program also handled merging many objects into the level geometry, and converting others to SA2 equivalents, as well as merging all three acts of the level into one. I had to write an object to render the palm trees, as SA2's transparency handling is awful and they were rendering behind the ocean. I've also written custom objects to handle music changes and the act transition. I've ported the skybox and ocean code from SADX, which I believe is the first time something like that has been done.

Unfortunately, the cameras could not be ported from SADX to SA2 in time for the contest. This will be fixed later.

Source code for the mod and the program used to convert the level geometry and object layouts can be found here: https://github.com/MainMemory/SA2EmeraldCoast

This mod is in the Sonic Hacking Contest: http://sonichacking.org/entry/68

    I never saw this until now. I'm glad I got a notification for somebody liking this, or I would've never seen it.

    Would've been nice if you added that Orca but it's a cool Map though and it really matches up with the original Emerald Coast!

    How do I uninstall this? I diactivated it on the mod loader AND I took it out of the mods folder but everytime I load up city escape I get emerald coast. I don't have the magic gloves yet so I need city esacpe back. Please halp.

    I also can't play any of the chalenges that I had already completed on city escape. So because I had done 'escape the city' and 'collect 100 rings' on city escape I couldn't play those (cruse the coast or the second one) on Emerald Coast.

    Seems to have some sort of compatibility issue with CS+. Crashes when trying to load the portraits.

    This is probably the best SA2 stage mod by a landslide because it's the only one with a custom layout the only problem ive ever faced is that there are invisible walls surrounding the shore stopping you from dying but it more helps then hinder's the experience just makes it a bit annoying when you are just trying to mess around but other than that this is a revolutionary mod and i hope to see many more like this in the future maybye even a speed highway mod

    After booting up the game, I hear an error message appear & the game will not be able to get past the loading screen.

    Whenever I try to load SA2 with the mod, the game gets stuck on the loading screen and I have to restart my computer. Is there a way around that? I noticed that other's hadn't had that issue. So I wonder why my pc just can't load the mod; and if you're wondering, I have a strong PC.
