    A little tweaking of my "swapping character" code (that doesn't rely on Encore Mode's) + using CodenameGamma's cheat table to force a third character, this was the result.

    Beating LJSTAR to the punch by posting his work from youtube but his character swapping mod has gotten even better. Basically it seems like we now have Sonic Mania Heroes

    I think you're allowed to double post if what you're posting is important, especially if it's been a day or two. At least, that's how I've always done it. Anyway, this is exactly the kind of modding I want to see in Mania.

    Impressive.
    At this point it's only a matter of time until you manage to make Doom run on it.

    Can someone please help me get the Mania mods from SAGE working? I keep getting the version not supported error message even when using the July 8th build.

    I got the loader fromhttps://gamebanana.com/wips/48996 and have the Encore DLC installed.

    Given that everything matched, I just decided to wipe the folder and redownload Mania.

    That did the trick! I assume a stray .dll belonging to an older version of the loader was to blame.

    That's weird, the mod manager should have notified you if the copy of ManiaModLoader.dll in the mods folder didn't match d3d9.dll in the main folder.

    Probably an extremely stupid question, but what are the possibilities of running the internal files of the android version of Sonic 1/2 in this version of RetroEngine? I'd love a PC version of those 2 ports, the phone screen and touch screen controls don't cut the mustard.

    Edit: Nevermind, I read back in the topic, doesn't look possible.

    At some point are we going to edit the OP? It's rather outdated and I feel like links to some of the more recent tools developed for the modding scene would be useful to have.

    Hey, I'd like to figure out how to play an arbitrary sound effect right as a level starts (and only then). I know that's an oddly specific request, but trust me, that is what I need. I'd be perfectly happy replacing an unused sound effect if that's what it takes. If anyone could help me out, I would surely appreciate it.
