As per Discord TOS, anyone blatantly under 13 (That means acting like a child) will be banned without further regards.
The SRB2P modding doc!


SRB2Persona is a mod I've been working on with the help of a few friends every now and then for about 4 years now. The entire point was to recreate Persona's general gameplay into SRB2. Yeah, it doesn't get any stupider than that! It started off as a barely playable weird tech demo that would error about everytime we tried playing it. Honestly I was unsure whether or not it was going to ever be something playable or stay as a fever dream.
Yet here we are, today. After 3 entire rewrites and countless hours of testing over the course of 4 years, I have no idea how my motivation lasted me this long, but I'm happy to release the first SRB2Persona demo!

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Spoiler: If you ask any question that's answered here in this spoiler I will come to your house with a briefcase full of material and a bat. The bat is just for show.


Play the tutorial
I cannot stress this enough, even if you've played a Persona game before, I recommend you check it out.

5029 UDP.
That's the port you need to forward for people to join your hosted games. The method to portforward varies between ISPs so this one is on you to figure out, chief.

Netgame issues
It's nothing new that SRB2's netgames were never the most stable.
There is no guarantee that netgames with more than 8 players (or any amount for that matter, but bigger playercounts amplify the problems) stay stable forever depending on each individual player's connection.
Joining mid-game (after parties have been made) also frequently causes problems, so it's much better to make sure your lobby's all filled up with all the friends you wanted before confirming the parties. I have tried to the best of my ability to limit this issue to the maximum, but it still frequently occurs.
To limit mid-game joinings and the myriad of issues that come with them, there is no Master Server support, only LAN is supported for now. In other words, you need the host's IP to join

Singleplayer?
Outside of the tutorial, this demo of SRB2Persona offers absolutely no entierely singleplayer content (yet??), but you are free to play the Tartarus exploration & challenge battles by yourself however which recreates the intended feeling!

Modding?
There is modding support and custom characters can be added. Modding documentation for the mod will come at a later date. ...Or is it already out somewhere?



So, what's in the package?

Frantic turn based battles
Experience the flashy aesthetic of the Persona battle system, with a hint of Shin Megami Tensei buff system topping to add some flavour, alongside literally hundreds of available Persona skills and a varied selection of characters!
Find out and exploit your enemies' weaknesses to knock them down and get additional turns! Manage to knock them all down, and you can unleash the powerful All-Out Attack to deal massive damage and maybe just end the battle in a flash!
If you either finish a battle with an All-Out Attack, or within a single turn, you may even get a chance to get some more mileage out of it!


Dungeon crawling with up to 4... 8...? wait, 16 players!?
Crawl within the mazes of Tartarus. Ambush the Shadows impeding your way, earn EXP to get stronger and make your way up to and destroy the floor guardians with a party of 4... Or up to 4 parties of 4! (Nope there's no guarantee the netgame will even stay stable, do that at your own risk!)
...Just be careful not to spend too much time on a single floor, or bad luck awaits...


Fight it out in a 4V4 PvP duke out!
Experience the many intricacies of how stupidly unbalanced the battle system is by unleashing your most devious strategies on each other!


Test your skills on Challenge Battles!
Take on timed boss rematches and endless battles with up to 3 other players to set the best times and scores! Serves as a good training session to know what to expect from the many dangers of Tartarus!



FULL DOWNLOAD (v1.2):

Ohh man, you finally released this. Sick as hell. Brought me out to play SRB2 again just for this.

I remember back in 2016 when you DM'd me about helping since I was also making a Persona mod back then. Heh, sorry I never responded--I just literally didn't notice for a month and then felt too awkward to point it out. Still, you did a great job, and implemented many mechanics the same way I had planned for my own--and added some I didn't even think of--so I definitely approve! Plus all the art and stuff looks really good. But yeah, just had fun playing it with friends for a few hours, REALLY looking forward to the future of this.

(Oh, and if you still want help--uh, I am still willing, but still feeling awkward about our last interaction...years ago lmao)

I played this mod and my laptop didn't blew up! I never play a Persona's game and it's gameplay it's very addictive! One of my favourites mods!

Also, you may know this issue (normal for being a demo), but in certain circunstances, the enemy attacks a teammate that was already dead... It happen to me in a boss fight that the boss, attacks with Assault dive (or something like that) to Tails being dead

Hope you guys can make the full experience! Good 4 years job

Fang mistook his popgun for an evoker. That's what happened.

Hooray! I've been waiting for this for quite a while, its definitely worth it. I'm looking forward to a single player mode that saves progress. Quick question though, why does Blaze use an Ice Persona? Especially since all her voice lines still refer to her fire. Mitsuru's Persona is not a bad fit in itself, but its strange to see her focus on Ice.

Also today I learned defense can also be spelled defence. Had to Google that to make sure it wasn't a typo.

Seems the mod is broken if someone join in the middle of a game so cannot join server and IP only don't help for that.

Gotta say. RPG Games are my jam. I never tried Persona before but using my Trails games strategy in here works perfectly for me in here. You really outdone yourself Lat, glad I could try this out. Way to go!

Well finally I joined the server but cannot play. Infinite explosion making hard to see and invisible menu.
If you want to know we're 11 and that happened when I hitted a shadow.
And also is it normal that falling in a pit don't kill you but instead softlock you ?

Known, not much I can do about it in the immediate future.

Norton Security doesn't like me going online, I don't think there's a way around it because it deletes the executable file.

We was 12 when started the game followed by an instant disable joining when started and the glitches in my second post happened.
Was it because we were 12 or the mod just being broken ?
