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.

    access to path "efmsgfont_ascii245_Backup.bin" is denied" whenever I try to install or remove a second mod, I can't figure out how to fix this

    Is there a way to have ModLoader run a different .exe? I had to rename "sonic2app" to "Launcher" to fix some particle effects problem. I can still use ModLoader just fine, but I can't use the more convenient "Save & Play" button

    I have the steam version of sa-2 and I'm kind of new to modding, when I download tmodloader do I extract it into its own separate file or do I need to somehow get it into the Sonic Adventure 2 file

  • I'm having a small issue where when I start up the mod loader it gives a message saying "Installed loader DLL differs from copy in mods folder. Do you want to overwrite the installed copy?" Now I only got this message after having to verify the game integrity as I was having problems with a mod as it would crash before the sega logo would show up, I also noticed that if I select no to the message then the game wouldn't crash, but if I choose to overwrite then the game would crash. So I'm wondering how I would go about handling this message so I don't have to keep selecting no every time I start up the mod manager?

    P.S. the mod in question it the chao world extender with started acting up on me for no reason.

  • when I put the mod loader and try to enter shows up ""Unhandled exception has occured in your application. if you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately. 

    O acesso a 'C: \ Arquivos de programas (x86) \ Sonic Adventure 2 \ mods \ SA2ModLoader'. foi negado " 
    I put the mod loader on my main folder, but still the same problem. What I have to do?
