"What you see is what you get! Just a guy that loves adventure!"


  • Easy to digest physics and abilities taking the best from Sonic Adventure 1 and 2!
  • Support for controllers and simple mode. Even if you disliked those in SRB2, give the combination a try with SA-Sonic and be surprised! Bind "Center Camera" to a comfortable button, you might prefer it over manual camera turning!
  • A fleshed out super form, a custom NiGHTS moveset, many easter eggs, and deep-rooted mechanics hardcore fans will instantly recognize!
  • A custom Adventure menu for cosmetical and accessibility options! (Could be on the pause button if 2.2.10 allows it, but you're limited to the "samenu" console command for now!).
After around a year of work Adventure Sonic (AKA SA-Sonic!) is complete! SA-Sonic heavily alters the game's physics to resemble Adventure 1 and 2's, whilst scaling everything to still work in SRB2.

Sonic has more turn control and air resistance as in Adventure. He also gains more speed running and rolling down slopes, as, in general, he's most efficient when grounded. That may be different than what you're used to in SRB2, which normally encourages you to stay airborne.

Adventure Sonic supports all forms of control, strafe, standard, and simple. But it was made with a controller and simple mode in mind first, as that's what comes to mind for us when we think of 3D Sonic platformers. Our primary goal was making Adventure Sonic control easily for newcomers, and I hope we achieved that goal! Pick up those controllers and have fun!

SA-Sonic is purely a character mod for the sake of lightweight filesize and compatibility. But if you wanted to bless all of SRB2 with Adventure's style, here's some recommended mods!

-ALT SUPER THEME (OPEN YOUR HEART) : Plays Open Your Heart instead of Live and Learn!

-Adventure Emblems! Emblems become SA1-style, appearing even in modded/online games!

-Adventure HUD! Gives an SA1-style HUD and Boss meter!

-Adventure Monitors! Monitors look and act like Sonic Adventure!

-Goal Ring Mod! Uses SA2 Goal Ring with unique sprite for SA-Sonic!

-SA-styled enemy explosions! Self-explanatory!

-SA 1-up! Replaces extra life jingle & sfx. Toggle the life icon sfx from jingle to sound effect in SRB2's sound options so your game's music won't get interrupted with every extra life!

- Jeck Jims (SA2 Saturn)
- PepperMint (SA1 & SADX)


Method 1:

Copy & paste the text below to a file called AUTOEXEC.CFG. You now have a command called "SRB2adventure" or "Adventure" that instantly load everything!

alias SRB2adventure "addfile CL_AdventureSonic-v1.4b.pk3; addfile L_AdventureEmblems-v1.pk3; addfile L_AdventureMonitors-v4.1.pk3; addfile L_SAExplosions-v1.pk3; addfile SA-1UP.pk3; addfile L_GoalRing-v2.3.pk3; addfile VL_sa1hud-v2.pk3"
alias adventure SRB2adventure

Or just download this one if you don't have an AUTOEXEC.CFG.

Method 2:
Simply use this after you've downloaded the mods listed above.
SRB2adventure bat file
Start with SA-Sonic bat file (Version that just quickboots vanilla SRB2 with only SA-Sonic)
ADVANCED TRICKS (Documented by Shine)
Here's some obscure mechanics, or things you may not have thought to try! You'll do just fine without them, but knowledge is power, right?

-Superbounce: You can perform this as Super Sonic or with Sneakers! Look up a tutorial for SA2 Super Bounce if you're curious, the execution is the same!

-Spindash Hover: If Jump is held when spinning off a ledge, you'll be way floatier! You'll straight up soar as Super Sonic!

-Maximum Heat: Tap Custom3 with the Ancient Light charged to do the Lightspeed Attack but ignore rings entirely!

-Brick Drop: When ineligible for Super Sonic, press Custom 3 mid-jump to drop like a brick. This also detonates certain shields.

-Bounce Cancel: Airdashing as you descend will cancel bounce attacks!

-Spincharge jumping: You can always jump when charging spindashes, even in midair.

-Lightdash jumping/spinning: You can always jump or start charging after a lightdash, even in midair. No need to time it, just hold either button.

-Taunting: Press TossFlag+Custom2 or WeaponPrev+WeaponNext to taunt. The weapon number buttons can select specific voicelines beforehand! Holding jump, spin, or both during the taunt even has Sonic end with alternate poses!

We'll keep supporting SA-Sonic and updating it as he goes. Here's the changelogs from old versions!

-Player 2 now uses their own seperate save file
-After exiting SAmenu the menu for player 2 will open up.
-Some HUD effects are disabled in splitscreen

-Moved encourage tutorial text to the center of the screen.
-Put a dark background behind NiGHTS brake tutorial.

-In COOP, SA-Sonic leaves a silver token so all players may get 50 rings with all emeralds.
-You now regain thok if bouncing off eggguard shields in rolling frames. Dw, I didn't fix shield launching.
-Invincibility now breaks spikes/guard shields.
-Reduced ledgestop sensitivity
-Disabled directional controls for a few frames when ledgegrabbing to stop players from disorienting themselves.
-When you have the fireflower, custom3 and spin now both shoot fireballs as well.
-Hybrid game flair now uses SA1 spin sfx.
-Switch to SA-Sonic to get a client-side "Here we go" voiceline!
-LSA now bonks off rather than dealing 1x damage on resistant foes. Not a nerf for optimal play, but this should make bosses last longer in netgames against uncoordinated LSA spam, and also make convey the existence of LSA resistance better!

-Updated Tails encouragement emote sprite, tracking behaviour, and added super version!
-Updated SACYANTRAIL color.

-SA-Sonic's Chaos Emerald sprites are now freeslotted to YTK5.
-SA-Sonic can now give Jet air, you now receive a message on who gave you a gift, and Super Sonic can now gift with his alt taunt.
-AFK mods should no longer mess with SA-Sonic's level exiting.
-Stopped potential spazzing during player hugs.
-Cageless Egg Colosseums should be properly fightable now.
-You can now revenge-drag Pointy players with spin.
-Completed "flyswitchdisabled" behaviour. Allows for SA1 or SA2 exclusive Super Sonic behaviour in mods:
addHook("PlayerThink", function(p)
--Change number to your map's.
--If your map goes into the letters, this page can do the counting for you.
if gamemap == 01
if p.powers[pw_super] and and == "adventuresonic" and p.yusonictable

p.yusonictable.superflight = 0 --Make this 0 for SA1(Perfect Chaos), or 1 for SA2(Final Hazard)
p.yusonictable.flyswitchdisabled = true

-If you're using SABLUETRAIL as your custom aura color, your bounce sprite is no longer forced to also be blue.
-If you finish the stage while spinrevving, Sonic now brakes rather than sliding awkwardly in his standing sprites.
-Fixed a bunch of rare cases where animations could hang or interrupt.
-Minor stuff. Disabling flight control while in SAmenu, rare random error messages, etc.

-Added extra variable to SAnoflashes. "SAnoflashes hyperwhite" : for those who want white AND all the flashy effects. I/O saves this.

-You can now ledgegrab onto Eggman statues and most trees in the vanilla game.

-Bouncing now uses spin aura rather than revving aura
-Revving aura updated to be more consistent among colors.

-Once per level, taunts can give Skip, Samus, Duke, Mario, Shadow, Modern Sonic, or super characters a supportive gift!
-Kirby now gets abilities from sucking SA-Sonic.
-Improved compatibility for the newer L_Cosmetics-v1_3 mod.
-SA-Sonic can now speed up Dirk's ice skating with spin, and uses his braking animation.
-Surge can now charge herself by vaulting off a spinning/ancient light-charged Sonic!
-Added support for the footsteps mod.
-Wrestled with Axis2D to try improve compatibility. Keyword: try
-Added better model support. SPR_YTK6 is the Ancient Light glow effect(not the blue part). SPR_YTK7 is SA's jumptrail, SPR_YTK8 is the spintrail, SPR_YTK9 is the spindash revving aura. Also put in code to support models in NiGHTS. Good luck!
-You can now ledgegrab Dirk's ice platforms, and any custom objects modders want SA-Sonic to grab. To add ledgegrab support to your custom objects, add this to an Lua file!
local function LedgeGrabAble(s)
s.saledgegrab = true

addHook("MobjSpawn", LedgeGrabAble, MT_YOUROBJECTITEMNAME)

-Edited Metal Sonic to kill himself (NOW!) if he has 0 or less health, no matter his state or circumstance.
-Changed circumstances at which Sonic disabled SF_SUPER so transform sectors won't bug out.

-Now auto-loads I/O saves in netgames as well.

-Thundercoin Shield now uses a Sonic Advance-inspired attraction shield!

-Your SP colors no longer apply to other characters than SA-Sonic. Ouch, that's embarrassing.

KNOWN ISSUES (Documented by Golden Shine)

-If a platform has the "Block only Players" property, Sonic cannot ledgegrab it. This is unfixable but thankfully very rare. (It's applied unnecessarily on a few AGZ platforms) This CAN be applied purposely if you want SA-Sonic to NOT grab a FOF's ledge, so that's a plus!

-In rare specific spots in a few maps Sonic can ledgegrab walls he shouldn't be able to. This is partially from wonky map collision, and partially from the ledgegrab being very generous. Fixing it requires getting stricter with the checks, and I'd rather ledgegrabs work too well sometimes than it becoming less reliable.

-Sonic's death animations depend on the properties assigned to a hazard! If Sonic catches fire on an ice platform or falls through a solid floor like a death pit, that's because the level assigned "fire" to that ice or a "death pit" instead of "instant kill" to that floor. Correctly assign damage elements if you want to properly support mods!

-There's occasional custom music hiccups. These have been inconsistent between testers and I could never recreate them, I just know some people have them. Your mileage may vary. Hopefully I can fix these in the future, I apologize for this!

GOD this has got to be one of the BEST SRB2 mods I have ever had the honor of downloading and using. The title says it all! It plays and feels JUST like SA1/2 Sonic (considering it's a mix) 10/10 One of the, if not, best mods.

The moves are just has janky has before and being tested in a speedy area I can confidently say this is super outstanding

absolutely phenomenal. if there ever was a sonic adventure 3 this should be EXACTLY how sonic controls. new additions like the advance-style air dash as well as improvements to his adventure mechanics possibly make this the most fun i've had in any sonic game, no less srb2. i've missed unhinged sa1 physics so much and its great to see this reintigrate it so perfectly without any of the jank. and the ledge stop mechanic in particular is just straight up brilliantly integrated. i can't even tell what exactly sets it off and yet it only ever happens when i'd want it to. ledge grab is a literal lifesaver and so useful i wish it was a part of vanilla sonic's moveset. his sprites are so charming and well drawn that i don't even want to switch to the og adventure model despite it being an option and me personally loving his sa1 look. just perfection all around, i don't even know what else to say.

Best SRB2 character mod ever for me (as of writing this)!
The sprites and the visual effects are beautiful, and the moveset is enjoyable and fun! This mod is really polished... It feels good playing with other "Adventure" mods aswell, like SA1 HUD, Starpost Rewards, Goal Ring, etc. I don't have any complains about this mod.
If you haven't played this mod yet, I'd recommend you to do so!
