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.

  • Sorry for asking this, but is there a more recent guide on how to load mods to the game? I'm unsure how to do the 1-click download option.

    I have an issue, for some reason now whenever I load a mod with sound changes like Modern SA2, the game doesn't play the new music and sounds, instead it plays the original versions.

    Is it possible to rebind the button needed for the Super Jump code? I would like it to be mapped to Y instead rather than the same button for jumping.

    I have a problem.

    Every time I load the game up with the mod loader, or in general, it crashes as soon as it hits the first loading screen. 

    Is there something I'm doing wrong before I load the game ?

  • I'm a dumb and don't know how to put in codes. I was trying to use the chao garden tree and hero fruit fixes you posted on sonic retro(I would link but I just made this account.) but it says Error loading code list: Invalid code line "patch "Hero Garden Fruit Fix" " in mods\Codes.lst:line 180

    I have no idea what I'm doing.
    EDIT: I think I fixed it. I needed to capitalise the P in patch. It stopped giving me the error and when I went to the chao garden the tree fix worked. I don't have the hero garden yet since I just got the game on Steam so I can't tell if that fix works yet.

    I have no idea how to fix this; it just suddenly broke on me when trying to get my mods set up.

    I'm beyond pissed.

    So I, too am getting the "Data_DLL.dll not found" message and I made sure everything was right. The mod loader folder is in the Sonic Adventure 2 game folder, which is in the proper path within the C folder. I tried reinstalling the game without the battle dlc, I tried moving the resource folder into the mod loader folder. That SOMETIMES works but not always. But then when I click "install loader," I then get the "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application" message, I have no idea what could be wrong. I'm running on a Windows 10 laptop btw.

  • If you like having your save file deleted and potentially breaking your game, then by all means download this now.

    So I got the mod loader to work for a couple days until I told it to save & play now. The error says the system cannot find the file specified.
