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.

  • It keeps saying "installed loader DLL differs from copy in mods folder" when I overwrite the installed copy and open the game I get a "msvcp140.dll" error. Then I open steam to Verify Integrity of Game Files, and then I get the first error all over again. Is the problem that I have it installed in my D: drive? Is there anyway I could fix this?

    Please can you make a version for linux. I use manjaro and haven't been able to get the loader to work with the game. I'm not sure how hard it would be but I would greatly appreciate it if you could 1. Make a version that works on linux or 2. Give a guide on how to install the modloader on linux.
    Thanks :D

    I have bootcamp, which lets me run windows on a macbook, and whenever I install the modloader, even with no mods active the game crashes. How do I fix this? It runs fine vanilla

    I'm having an issue downloading mods using the one click option on mods. It tells me "Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (sa2mm) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context." I tried googling around to find a solution and used Microsoft Edge as well but it doesn't recognize the SA2 mod loader as a app. If anyone could help me id greatly appreciate it!

  • I have discovered the solution to the SA2 error with the Mod Loader on the loading screen. It is a Microsoft Visual C ++ error or it might be a NET Framework error. You need to install one of two (it is recommended that you install both). And the problem will be solved. Well ... At least it worked for me.
