Extra Character Slots - A Mod for Sonic 3 A.I.R.

Updates

Version 6.1 1mo
  • Tweak Changed the format required for character sprites
  • Optimization Code optimizations
  • - Many other changes made over a 5 months period, I can't list them all because I can't remember all of them
There's a bigger update hopefully coming in a few days, but I've had this inbetween build sitting around for a long while so I thought I'd publish it before I forget again. I've also updated the tutorial, so make sure to check that out.

Note: This does not allows you to pair Sonic & Knuckles, or Tails & Tails. This allows for extra slots, not character pairing.

With the power of Lock On Modding, this mod allows you to add extra character slots. You can make the character just be a sprite swap of a normal character, or a complete moveset change. In the download, there's two mods. One is the base, and one is an example. The base contains the base as well as the template, and needless to say, the example folder contains an example. For compatibility, there's way too much for me to explain here, so read this tutorial. Also, make sure to not delete your persistentdata.bin because it stores which character you're using for each data select slot. On the topic of data select, there's also a visual bug where Sonic will show instead of the actual character, but it's purely visual and just selecting the slot should fix it.

If you want an example of how it works, look at the example mod included in the download. In the example, there's S1 Sonic in extra slot 1, Stylized Tails in extra slot 2, and Proto Knuckles in extra slot 3. For moveset changes, S1 Sonic can't use air abilities like in S1, Tails will transform (if possible) as soon as you're in the air like in S2, and Proto Knuckles can't damage enemies while in a spindash.

If you want to make your sprites mod compatible with this, read this tutorial. If you want to make an ability mod compatible, looking at the scripts should give you a good idea on how to do it.

    Okay, so here's what I think:
    The script seems a bit confusing, especially for someone who doesn't have a lot of knowledge lime me, so maybe a video tutorial could help.
    I know there's a written tutorial, but I still found it a bit difficult to make it work properly.

    Is it just me who can't find a download button?
    I'm not sure if the problem is affecting only this page or the entire website.

    So, in this mod, you said this isn't for extra pairing. But, what that actually be possible o make a mod for?(Like Sonic+Sonic, Knuckles+Knuckles, Tails+Tails, Tails+Sonic, Tails+Knuckles, Sonic+Knuckles, and Knuckles+Sonic, or so?)
