Warning: If you suffer from epilepsy, or are sensitive to flashing lights, please type "hyperflash off" in the console (press ~ to open console) before turning hyper.



It's finally here!
The massive project that i've been working on for the last few months is finally complete! CrossMomentum, also known as XMomentum is my envisionment of how srb2 would play if I was put at the helm. Featuring momentum, new character movesets, tricks, hyper forms, and much, much more!


This mod has a downright ridiculous amount of content, so i'm gonna split this up into sections.



Global changes


Momentum
Almost all characters now are able to gain momentum by either running/rolling down slopes, or simply running on flat ground for a long enough time. Additionally, all characters who can spindash are capable of uncurling at any time, and bonus acceleration is given for rolling down any slope regardless of height. Due to this, it's typically a good idea to roll down any slope you can find.

Tricks
Press Jump off of a spring to start tricking. While tricking, you can press Spin to rotate clockwise, and Jump to rotate counter-clockwise. The more flips you can do without touching the ground, the greater the eventual speed boost will be once you land! Just make sure you don't land on your head...

Hueshifted Skincolors
Each member of the vanilla cast gets their own unique skincolor, complete with hue shift! While not an objective improvement over vanilla, I think the characters look far nicer with these.

Hyper Forms
Any character who can go super can also go hyper! Just make sure you've got 150+ rings before transforming. I'll go into much more detail about the various hyper abilities you can get later down in the post.

no more airwalking
i don't like airwalk lol

Water Running
When running at high speeds, you may notice a trail of dust appearing behind you. This means that you're moving fast enough to water-run! Just make sure you keep your speed up, or you'll fall right through that lake...


Character-Specific changes


Sonic
Returning from the SADC, Sonic gets the Momentum Thok! I took all the criticism that was given for the original ability into account here, and have made significant changes to how it works.
The momentum thok is, as the name implies, a thok that is heavily affected by your current momentum. The faster you're moving, the faster it'll fling you! Additionally, if you hold down jump after initiating a momentum thok, it'll turn into a momentum jumpthok!

Tails
Instead of his normal flight, tails gains three upwards "Bursts" that don't take away any speed. These allow him to skip major chunks of levels, but don't directly aid him in gaining or redirecting speed in any way. Additionally, you can also tap spin for a quick downwards burst, which is useful for getting around various bits of level geometry that may be right in your way. You can also hold spin for a normal fast-fall.


As a little bonus, you can also change the color of tails' shoes via the console command "Blueshoes"!

Knuckles
...knuckles doesn't really have many changes aside from those present in vanilla momentum mod, those being that he has less speed reduction from landing, and canceling a glide no longer halts momentum. May have more substantial changes in an update.

Amy
Amy has been almost entirely changed from her vanilla counterpart. Her new double jump move is an ability which I have dubbed the "Amycopter". Essentially, the amycopter allows you to redirect momentum in the direction you're currently facing, and gives you a slow fall effect for around a second. Additionally, hitting an enemy while in your amycopter state will send you flying into the air, and allow you to do another amycopter without touching the ground. She also now has the hammer jump, which is activated by pressing jump during the grounded hammer attack's landing phase. This jump will send you higher the faster you was moving before activating it. Amy also makes heavy use of powerspringing in order to do even more tricks then any other character can from a single spring. Don't forget that you can do a normal twinspin by simply pressing spin midair with no shield!

Fang
Fang's gun is the main change here, you can now use it in the air or on the ground, and you can use it at any speed. This allows him to take out tons of badniks in record times!

Metal Sonic
The vast majority of metal's changes are purely aesthetic, though there is one major gameplay alteration: He can no longer lose dashmode while airborne. Use this alongside his hover to take dashmode through areas that are normally too platforming-heavy to maintain it!


...Vanilla sonic?
Just to appease thok fans, I added the option to play as sonic, but with none of the fancy xmomentum stuff. He gets no tricks, no uncurling, no momentum, none of that jazz, just your standard thok.




Hyper Forms

As stated above, any character capable of going super is also capable of going hyper by collecting 150 rings before transforming. All hyper characters have a much higher jump height then a typical super form, faster acceleration, and their actionspeed is 2x what it normally is. Additionally, many characters have various buffs exclusive to them when they go hyper. Here's a list of various characters and what they can do.


Vanilla Characters

Spoiler:

Sonic
Hyper Sonic is able to fly, similarly to how he could in Doomsday Zone and Egg Reverie Zone. To begin flying, press spin midair. After you begin flying, press Jump to ascend, and Spin to descend. Aditionally, holding both Jump and Spin will allow you to do a boost, though you can't ascend or descend while boosting.

Tails
Hyper Tails gets infinite flight bursts. Pretty straightforward.

Knuckles
Hyper Knuckles no longer loses any height when gliding, can multiglide, and his glide goes significantly faster.


Amy
Hyper Amy can hover with her hammer indefinitely, and her hammer jump goes absolutely wild, allowing her to get just about anywhere in meer seconds.



Fang
Hyper Fang's popgun essentially turns into a machine gun, and his bounce is capable of going as high as a red spring, while causing a small screen nuke.

Metal
Instead of Hyper metal sonic, you get Hyper Metal Sonic!
...what?
...does nobody get the reference? I thought you guys loved the ova!
Aaaaanyways, Hyper Metal causes an armageddon shield-teir screen nuke whenever he enters dashmode, and his hover now allows him to slowly float upwards.



Modded Characters
Spoiler:

There are a lot of these, and as such, they'll simply be getting explanations instead of their own gifs (atleast for now, may come back and update the thread later lol)

Hyper Srbii:
Multi Momentum Thok + Mini screen nukes.

Hyper Milne:
Her thoks send you significantly higher.

Hyper Ray:
Infinite gliding.

Hyper Modern Sonic:
No ring drain from flight, and mini screen nukes when you activate the boost.

Hyper Eggpack:
He can hover upwards much faster when hyper then he can when super.

Hyper Noob [TORD]:
Similarly to eggpack, he can gain much more height much more quickly when hyper.

Hyper Junio Sonic:
Infinite uses of the Bullet Dash.

Hyper Gemma:
Jumping off of a rock makes you go significantly higher


Hyper Rafael:
Free-Flight, Similar to Hyper Sonic, though Rafael has the advantage of being able to taunt while flying!

Hyper Robe:
Electric Vortex is significantly faster, and Shock Jump makes you rise way faster

Hyper Nasya:
...It's literally just super mystic nasya, lmao. Draykon requested I just give her her super mystic abilities for her hyper, and I delivered on that request :P.



And many, many more!


COMING SOON:
Hyper Flareblis
Hyper milne but less lazy lol

XMomentum: Mapper's Edition

How to add XMomentum compatibility to your mods/characters
Spoiler:

How to add Trick Failure sprites
Spoiler:

First off, create a sprite of your character faceplanting (duh), then put it in the character's pk3 in the same place you put the rest of their normal sprites, and name it SHITALAR. After you've done that, simply put this soc into your character's SOC folder. After that, you're good to go!


Little lua bits and bobs that disable various things, enable various things, and check for various things. Thought it'd be worth documenting since a few people have asked.
Spoiler:

player.hasnomomentum
Set player.hasnomomentum to true when you wish to disable momentum on a character. This is necessary when you wish to mess with the player's normalspeed, as your normalspeed is constantly overwritten by XMomentum normally.
player.isxmomentum
Pretty self explanatory, simply check "if player.isxmomentum" or "if not player.isxmomentum" depending on if you want something to only run when XMomentum is loaded, or when it's not loaded. Be sure you don't use true/false with this though, as that'll cause errors if xmomentum isn't loaded.
player.spcanflip
When set to true, this will allow the player to do a short frontflip when they enter their falling state. If set to false, it disables it.
player.hyper.capable
This one's a bit more complex, but I think I can explain it. Basically, hyper capable is set when you have 150+ rings, and are not super, but is never removed if you're currently hyper. Essentially, what this means is that how you detect if the player is currently hyper is by doing this:
if player.hyper and player.hyper.capable and player.powers[pw_super]
Hope I explained that one well enough lol.
player.hassupermusic
When set to true, the standard hyper form music won't be played. Could either be used to give your character custom hyper music, or simply be used to stop hyper forms from causing immense lag if you already have custom super music.

Default So fun! But there is a problem..

First off I want to say I love everything you've done with this mod. The lack of running momentum in the base game always bugged me, and the new additions of ability tweaks, forms, and even aesthetic tweaks are all really cool and unique. Would love to see all of this added to the next update of the game. Great job overall! I just keep encountering a problem with the trick system.. Whenever I try to do tricks off a ramp or a spring, the trick system works incorrectly. The sparks don't come out, it makes no sound, and if I miss-time my landing, I don't get that trip animation, or the speed boost if I land correctly. ALSO, whenever I attempt to do a trick, it disables me from being able to use the spin button for the rest of my playthrough.. So I can't spindash, spin attack, descend while super, or anything that involves the spin button lol. It just stops working entirely, unless I reset to the main menu, then the same issue just happens again next time I try to trick. I am not sure if this is because I am playing on mac with a controller, but just wanted to let you know! I checked and haven't seen anyone else with this problem..

You need to make a Sprite called "SHITALAR" (ik, the names not that appropriated).

And speaking about the mod 10/10, would defenetly play it again

This "fail trick" will OF COURSE be on my character.
No Exceptions, it will be, and there's nothing that will change my mind.
(ok, talking about the mod that i already played a lot of times, Loved it, awesome and wonderful job Frostii)

Are you sure you're using the most recent release of srb2? If not, you have to for it to work properly. Otherwise, this IS a issue that should be figured out.

I haven't done much with most of the cast, but Amy is incredibly fun to play. Almost overpowered in a sense. She has basically every good quality you'd want I'm a character. Forward speed augmentation, vertical augmentation, momentum redirect, the character is crazy. I've put a bit of time in and have even been able to clear GFZ1 in sub 10 seconds and ACZ1 in sub 30. It's really cool just getting to see what she can do.

On the flip side, playing Knuckles feels atrocious. Having a low vertical jump, maintaining speed is almost impossible. Likewise, not being able to maintain speed after landing hurts. I've seen the idea thrown around and would be interested to see Knuckles play with being able to cancel his landing animation/face plant into a roll, especially since you can uncurl right away.

Otherwise, great work on this. Am having a lot of fun and will be spending more time attempting runs.

Okaaaay. I think there's a bug of some kind with Xmomentum regarding Super Sonic. I initially thought this only affected Almost Super Sonic and his hover ability, but no, even normal Sonic when going super has lost the ability to float in the air. Why is that? I would have thought Super Sonic would still be able to fly like how he can in SRB2 normal.

I think that was intentional. I'm pretty sure the flying ability is now hyper sonic exclusive in this mod.

Is it now? I think that kind of sucks in a way. Like, Super Sonic could have still had his normal flying ability while Hyper Sonic has one that gives him far more control over his flying than Super Sonic does. As free flying plus the dash ability make Hyper Sonics flight feel unique compared to Super Sonics.

That kind of silly... Super Sonic's flight isn't nearly the same thing as Hyper Sonic's. Super's is just a hover. Hyper's can move up or down, or burst forward. It's way more powerful.

Exactly. Which is why I feel Super Sonic should still be able to use it, as Hyper Sonics more powerful one already makes him feel different enough from Super Sonic there. Then there's Almost Super Sonics version which is like a weaker version of Super Sonic as he always goes down when using it. Yet he's blocked from it as well.

I feel you man, but who knows, maybe in an update it will be changed. Guess we can only wait and see. I personally didn't mind the change, but I definitely think you have a point. Regardless it's still an amazing mod that I feel improves the game overall.
