SA2 Mod Loader - A Modding Tool for Sonic Adventure 2.

SA2’s Mod Loader

This is the main way to use mods with SA2. The SA2 Mod Loader.

It supports file replacement mods, custom code mods, cheat codes, and debug logs.

1. Required Downloads

In order to get the mod manager to function as it should, you need to download and install the files listed down below. Once installed, restart your PC and then proceed to setting up the mod manager.

DirectX web installer runtime (Click Here) (you need this to get the game working first if you can’t run the game by default)

Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2010 Redistributable - x86 (Click Here) - x64 (Click Here)

Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2012 Redistributable (Click Here)

Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2013 Redistributable (Click Here)

Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2015, 2017, 2019 Redistributable (Click Here)

.NET Framework 4.8 Runtime (Click Here)



2. Updates

The latest version of the mod manager is always available at http://mm.reimuhakurei.net/sa2mods/SA2ModLoader.7z, which has been linked down below for those that scroll straight to the bottom to download the file.
If you’ve downloaded it from the Gamebanana download page for the mod manager, be sure to update it as you won’t be able to run all the new mods that have been released.

    So, i've been having a problem with the ModManager where it won't load past the Sonic Team Logo UNLESS i run it in compatibility mode with Windows 8. It will then load the mods, but only in Keyboard mode and won't load my controller, despite Steam saying that it did load my controller settings.

    I did manage to pinpoint that it IS the modmanager and not a mod doing this. Has anyone had this happen before? Does anyone know how to have the Mod Manager recognize my controller, or how to have the game load without compatibility mode?

    Everytime I download a mod through GameBanana 1-click, the mod loader is unable to remove the temporary files. Why does this keep happening?

    In what order does this load mods? I know the standard is bottom to top [for some reason] but I just wanted to check.

  • Always Get A Rank and Rouge has Air Necklace won't work for me. There may be others as well, but I don't know of them yet. I tried reinstalling the loader and even the entire game, but neither of those did anything. It also can't be any mods I have as none are installed yet.
