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):
An existing install of vanilla SRB2 2.2.8 or above is necessary for SRB2Persona to run. Put them in the same dedicated folder.

Why does Blaze have Ice-based attacks? That makes absolutely no sense!

I suggest changing hers, Sonic's and Amy's elements to this:

Sonic: Wind
Amy: Ice
Blaze: Fire

As simple as that...

I never actually thought something like this was going to become such a thrilling experience. Your work absolutely has paid off, even in this "Demo" state. And to hear/see that you actually have a campaign planned??? God, I can't wait to see what that's gonna be like. And the addition of modding support is just absolutely sublime. I'm having a lot of fun with this.

This is one of the most terrific mods that I had played yet. However, I do have a question as to where is "Fang"?? Is he going to be part of the vanilla cast soon??

There IS a mod that adds Fang back into SRB2P, although it's not public yet, from what I've seen. You can get it from Spectrum's server whenever he hosts SRB2P

Default Some updates since 1.2...

Hey everyone, merry Christmas Eve!
I don't really have any tangible presents for this year but I've got some news on what's been going on since 1.2!

The huge focus of the upcoming 1.3 update -on top of more bugfixing- is replayability!
As such, dungeon generation has been made more interresting!

You can now find, among other things, deadly spikes that can quickly rack damage up if you keep landing on them repeatedly,

New enemy types such as the Fog Shadows that float above pits, or even the rare Golden Shadows!

And who knows, maybe even more new things...

Battles also get their fair share of changes!
For starters, Shuffle Time now yields numbered cards, the HP/SP cups have been merged into a single card, and the Suit of Coins has been added!


Yup, this means you can now get money from battle.
That money can be exchanged at the Velvet Shop located on each boss floor, where your lovely* [citation needed] Velvet Room attendant will happily take your Macca in exchange for overpriced items, can't say the same about the reverse though.

You can buy anything from convenience items to Skill Cards or even Sub-Personas if you're willing to pay the price! ...Though do keep in mind you share funds and inventories with your party...

Bosses are now more akin to Shin Megami Tensei's as they can act twice per turn! As a compensation, they have less health, this should turn boss battles more into do-or-die challenges where failure to respond to the boss' assault properly will result in death, instead of a long drawn out battle like is the case currently.


In addition to that, a new Roguelike mode where enemies are stronger and have randomized affinities and elemental skills is also in the works!
Screenshots can't really do this mode justice as it's a subtle change from the regular exploration gamemode, but one that will keep you on your toes as no team composition will truly be safe no matter the block!

You can expect all that (and maybe even some more?) heading your way sometime in 2021! No telling when, I don't make promises...

You need to do addfile (file name) in the console. Be aware that it's only mods with Persona Support that works. If you add a character that doesn't it will use Sonic's Stats and Attacks

That would normally give you a warning and or an infraction unless you give context as too why you are doing that, if it is just spamming then please do not do that again for it breaks rule 8.

this is not the place for testing BB Code but if you need help with BB Code then this might help.

You know addons menu wasn't a thing until SRB2Kart and late 2.1.
