Please note: If you plan to use this mod along with the Shantae character mod, you *must* use/play on the Pre-Plus version of Mania for now. While the character mod creator had said there are plans to update the mod for Plus integration, this has not been completed yet.
A few months ago, fellow modder ssanman made a mod that ported most of Shantae's spritework from her latest adventure, Half-Genie Hero. (It can be found here.)
The mod was awesome, but the one thing that bugged me was that no unique HGH sound effects or Shantae voice clips were added in to make the mod feel more... "Shantae-y."
With ssanman's permission, which I can't thank him enough for, I have taken the helm of adding/creating a mod that includes these new sounds. Thus, Shantae: Half-Genie Mania...'s Sound Effects and Voice Pack! My first large-scale mod for Sonic Mania!
As of this first upload, I can get away with saying the mod is already complete; most, if not all, of the sounds within the "Global SFX" folder have been changed, with a few from the "Stage" folder as well. Some are even "remixed," per-se, so as to represent both Sonic and Shantae. (Which ones exactly are up to you to find out. ;) Or, y'know, just check the files.)
But with a little more digging and consequently finding a ton of HGH's other global SFX, I want to try my best to completely revamp Mania's sounds and whatnot for a complete Shantae experience--in terms of audio, anyway. Maybe I'll even go for music sometime! Hence, this is also, in some regard, an ongoing WIP. It may take me a while, but be on the lookout for updates!
Nevertheless, this is where I'm starting off. Enjoy Shantae's quirky little quips and game sounds in your latest round of Mania today! And of course, constructive criticism is welcome--this is (again) my first swing at Mania modding.
