BetterHeroes, formely


Welcome to SH Essentials! This studio was intended to make the PC port of Sonic Heroes the best port of all time! There are mods associated to the studio to fix and/or adjust most parts of the game, being them in a graphical or hardcoded way, with some extra mods for you to have double fun.

Mods associated to SH Essentials are here to fix many issues, adjust/overhaul models, animations & sonuds and lack of textures/codes on the PC port of Heroes. Graphical and Hardcoded fixes and optimizations (some from other ports, others made from scratch or with the PC assets) are being made or already released by some members of the Heroes Hacking Central. There are also extra mods for you to experience the game in a curious/funny way.

SH Essential doesn't have much rules, but we always want to be secured and to follow the Site Rules, as a basic rule;
Don't ask/please for joining the studio if you did nothing about fixing the game or adjusting something for it;
Don't duplicate mods (it will be trashed from both the studio and game corner);
LQ/LE mods does not count. uh... you can do a little better, human.
