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)

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.

    Ok so I got everything to work, but when I boot up the game it runs at 60 fps making it way to fast. I enable the frame lock feature in the mod loader then I boot SA2 again and it stops responding when the intro tries to load. I will be very grateful if someone can find a fix for this issue.

  • When I use the mod loader the game works perfectly fine. However, if I try to go to different application or even just the desktop and then go back, my whole pc breaks. I can only move my mouse on a black screen. Ctrl+Windows+D doesn't work and neither does Alt+F4. I have to reset my laptop.

    So whenever I have a skin mod turned on (for example Rouge), the game runs completely fine until I pick a stage or anything with her in it. The game will get to the omochao tips screen, then freeze and close right after. Any help or solution?

    I need some help.

    After I played the game with the mod loader for the first time, none of the voices play. Like, music and SFX is still there, but no voices at all. I tried disabling the mod loader, it didn't work. I verified file integrity on Steam and it said that I was missing 1 file. After I downloaded it again and opened the mod loader, it had the following message:

    Installed loader DLL differs from copy in mods folder.

    Do you want to overwrite the installed copy?

    [Yes]      [No]

    If I click yes, the issue with no voices persists, if I click no, however, the voices remain, but, none of the settings used apply to the game, so, it's either no voices or no mods. 

    Is there a way to fix this?

    I have everything installed and even installed the new version of the ModLoader, but my game either crashes after pressing start on the main menu or plays the game at 60fps making it unplayable.

  • Hi,

    I'm also getting the "Data_DLL.dll" missing error, but I DID extract everything directly into the SA2 folder as intended but I checked literally everywhere on my PC and this file just doesn't exist. It's not included in the 7z. It's just not there.

    Then if I try to run a mod on it anyway, it says, "Looks like you're starting a game without the mod loader installed..." When I tell it to go ahead and install the loader, I get yet another error message telling me the exact same thing. I even resorted to looking online for the missing file but no one has a copy you can just download anywhere, so I'm completely stuck.

    Does ANYONE have a solution for this?? I would love to use this but unfortunately my computer is coming up with every excuse not to run this thing ;-; Thank you!!

    There's a glitch where the always get A rank code in the mod loader doesn't give an A rank every time on mission 4 of the rouge driving level.
