    Now it just opens up to a white screen in episode 2 regardless of the mod. I tried your no hud mod to make sure it wasn't the mod I was trying to convert to the loader and the issue persisted. (I did a clean install of the mod loader) Does your loader log any files I can provide?

    I have a legit copy from steam but the vanilla files are modified for the Classic Sonic / Tails mod which is what I was initially trying to convert to the mod loader and possibly add missing animations (for personal use unless the original creator gave permission). I already have many files changed like the title screen and such. (yet again for personal use) Does the loader require all of the normal files to be vanilla?

    AMBPatcher's code seems interesting, The way its written is unusual, And I have learnt some interesting things from reading it, Like the way you did Bit shifting and the way you read numbers from files.

    I don't think this works with episode 2. I know you haven't tested it but I'm just confirming that it does not work from what I've tested.
