SA2 Ring Allergy - A Mod for Sonic Adventure 2

When you hate money.

1. About


When you hate money and want to avoid it at any cost. (Original image by Speeps.)



This is a simple mod that makes rings damage the character when you collect them. This mod was made for people who likes challenge and want to experiment the game in a different way. It forces you to think and use shield or even advanced movements such as Spin Dash jump in order to be able to complete a stage. Most of the stages are doable, (yes even City Escape and Metal Harbor, but I won't lie, you need to be smart.)

Disclaimer: This mod was originally a commission for speedrunners, therefore it wasn't made to be able to beat the game casually, though you should be able to beat mostly everything, the only stage that really must use speedrun strat is Crazy Gadget. That said, 4 stages layouts got edited regardless because they were impossible to beat otherwise such as Mad Space where you spawn directly in front of rings.

2. Installation

Note: All my mods require the lastest SA2 Mod Loader version and the vc++ dependencies (x86) to work.

  1.     Make sure you have the latest version of SA2 Mod Loader downloaded and installed from this link. (Copy all the downloaded files in your SA2 game folder.)
  2.     Download the latest version of SA2 Ring Allergy and place the entire folder in the mods folder.
  3.     If all the above steps have been done properly, you should be able to run SA2 Mod Manager and select the mod in the list.
  4.     Click on Save and play!

  • So uhh, serious question... How do you actually beat City Escape in this? After doing the somersault to get under the barrier before the truck section, there's an scripted event where the dash panel will centre you no matter what, and you'll travel at light speed into the ring trail and there's nothing you can do (I've tried). Might wanna look into that.

    Everything else is perfectly doable though it looks like.

    From the title, I thought this made the electric shield repel rings instead of attracting them.

    This is much worse. Super Hard Mode, step aside.
    Not a modder.

    Welp, I guess it's time to suffer learning more speedrun skips.

    Great mod!
