Step 1. Directory/Mod.json File Setup
- Open "%appdata%/Sonic3AIR/mods" in Windows Explorer and create a new folder there. As folder name, use whatever you want your mod to be named.
- (For Mod Manager Support), create a JSON file named "mod.json" and fill it with metadata like the mod name and author, just like this:
"Name": "Mod name",
"Author": "Your name", "Description": "A description of what your mod does.",
"URL": "https://yourhomepage.com", "ModVersion": "22.214.171.124", "GameVersion": "19.08.17.0"
- Alternatively, copy one of the sample mods from the "sample-mods" folder in your A.I.R. "doc" folder and modify it to your liking
2. Folder Structure
Your contents must be put in the correct spots to be loaded by A.I.R, here's a list of folders that you will need to create depending on your mod:
- "sprites" - This is where all the sprite modifications go
- "audio" - This is where all sound/music modifications go
- "level" - This is where all level modifications go
- "palettes" - This is where all color palette modifications go
- "rawdata" - This is where all Raw Data modifications go

3. Final Steps (for Uploading/Distributing)
Once you have you mod completed, put the contents in a supported compressed archive listed below:
- 7z (7zip)
Now, you should have a 1-Click Install Support Mod that works with the A.I.R. Mod Manager!
