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

        • This is done by temporarily pausing the game to resynchronize the RNG which seems to be the cause of the issue.

      • Fixed Analysis being repellable by Makarakarn
      • Fixed duplicate Emerald Skills

It seems like you need to add the mods in a specific order
You need to use the proper exe with it. It loads the files for you and is required for the mod to work properly ayway.

Is it supposed to take a really long time to start up? Or am I doing something wrong?

I never knew which type Tails attack does, but i'm guessing maybe
Sonic - Spin Slash - Slash
Tails - Pierce
Knuckles - Strike
Amy - Strike

...those are the only chars ive played as lol
im guessing some elements are from newer games (never heard of Psi)


anyway pros - shadows are extremely easy to dodge

cons - reaper somehow comes quicker
- tartarus feels harder to navigate even with a bigger map
- reaper is mad scary
- some weaknesses i swear differ from p3 but thats subjectively a con
- are there access points or a save thing or does it autosave / no singleplayer mode ATM but perhaps the singleplayer is meant for PERSONA rather than TARTARUS RUN
- some very small things like maybe 1 or 2 songs aren't in ig? subjectively a con

really cool beta tho i really liked it

Alright so y'all Android users now that running exe files is not doable but if you're thinking about just adding in all the stuff via add-ons through vanilla srb2 but I think the title screen speaks for itself.

So I was just running around as shadow using his chaos control in the lobby area when I accidentally clipped out of bounds when I fell out of bounds.
