What is SRB2: Chaotic Edition?
This is a mod that turns SRB2 on it's head, and makes it a game of endurance, seeing if you can complete the level before being knocked on your side by randomized effects. Every 3-10 seconds, a random effect will be applied to the player, in which it can hinder the player, help the player, or do a little bit of both. Each effect has different chances of occurring, whether it be common, or really rare. And a lot of effects have their own randomized elements.
Although there is no limit to the amount of effects that can be applied, generally speaking it's rare to see more than 6 effects applied to the player.
There is a vast amount of customization you can do with the chaotic command, of which you can see below here.

Additional Credits
  • QuickWolfPT for their "Mirror Mode" mod, specifically the lua script. Was able to use it for the "invert controls" portion of this mod.
  • Tatsuru for their "Slot Machines" mod, was able to use the BootlegAttract function in the script for my own purposes.
  • sprkizard aka szv for customsave_io.lua, I used the Serialize/Deserialize functions found in their script.
  • lua-users for the DeepCopy code, used for transferring tables between local to player variables.

It is highly recommended that if you are to set up a netgame with this, to use the dedicated server feature! Use -dedicated as a launch argument for SRB2 to launch it in dedicated server mode.
It isn't required, but it makes things run a lot smoother, with less chance of effects bugging out.

This is a pretty amazing update, it's pretty Outstanding, specially the fact that it brought the "Change Sprite" effect back from the dead, but also brought more effects that can make the game a real challenge to beat it, specially during a boss fight with Eggman.

Love the mod but I have a problem where when I add it to the game for some reason it makes the screen dark and it will stay dark, I think it has something to do with the UI because it goes away if I turn off the UI or I bring up any other UI such as the emerald list

I had a ton of fun doing challenge playthroughs with this mod, especially with amplified mode. The only issue I've had with it is that I kinda wish there was a way to change the frequency of certain effects. For example, turning down the frequency of "darkened vision" and turning up the frequency of "change character". (Apologies if this is already a feature that I've somehow overlooked)
