Trailer

That's right! After about 3 years in the making, Destructive Illusion has been finally released to the public!

Story:
Spoiler:
Eggman and a group of Egg Robos were digging on Angel Island, in search of the Phantom Ruby.
However, they seemed to be out of luck when no sign of the Ruby could be found.
Suddenly, Sonic and Tails arrived on the island and encountered the mad scientist. Eggman took notice of the two, and had come prepared for such an occasion.
Eggman called out his lackey Metal Sonic to hinder the two while he locates the Ruby. Then, during their fight, Eggman's drillers uncovered it at last!
The nefarious doctor focused his attention on the Ruby, not taking notice of Metal Sonic's swift defeat.
Sonic rushed to Eggman taking down his flying Egg Mobile, leaving Eggman on the ground. Before Tails could get a chance to ensure that Metal Sonic was properly out of order, Eggman suddenly shouted: "Metal! Get the Phantom Ruby!".
Metal's eyes came to life and blasted off, snatching the Ruby out of its hole. But when Metal caught it, a huge surge of energy waved across the island, unleashed from the Ruby itself.
The wave left the doctor's machines broken and mangled. And before Eggman's very eyes, Metal Sonic disappeared without a trace, followed by the blue blur himself.
Furious with his finest creation'ssudden vanishing, Eggman explodes in anger at his nemesis who once again had interrupted his plans.
However, the minerals he and his robots uncovered on the island gave him an idea: "Perhaps I can make my own copies of the Ruby, and replicate its power!".
Once told about Sonic's disappearance, Amy joined with Tails to form a resistance against Eggman's eventual comeback, so they could get revenge and find out what happened to Sonic. The rest of the Freedom Fighters were nowhere to be seen.
And now, Eggman's new threat opposes the world. But a new face gets ready to fight back....


Important Bugs:
Spoiler:

- It's HIGHLY recommended to play this mod in singleplayer first to get the definitive experience, since a lot of lag issues might occur.

-Frazzled Dungeon Act 3 is the most unstable in netplay and tends to desync players. It should be skipped for now if played in netplay.

Spoiler:

"chooseback (none/flag/crystal/balloon)" - Choose a back equipment!
"choosetop (none/candle/cactus/OVA)" - Choose a top equipment!
"colorback (color)" - Choose a color for the back equipment!

Default The cutscenes dont seem to function...

I had loaded the mod and and during the intro cut scene it teleported me to a black room and there was no way to progress, a similar thing happens to the underground base cut scene too (the only way I could even get there was through commands.) How do I fix this?

Hey umm It's not possible to get the bad ending, and by extension the good ending, the game soft locks when I choose the bad ending.

oh my god- this is just... terrible. the bosses sometimes go from way to easy,to infuriating- SPECIALLY egglabot. (the boss from heat horizons act 3) and i STILL haven't got the neutral ending and good ending. i just got both bad endings,of which i ended up getting a bunch of times trying to get something else. the story though starts with eggman talking about metal sonic,however- from then and on- eggman just appears as a few bosses,without saying anything afterwards. WHAT'S THE POINT OF STARTING WITH EGGMAN IF YOU DON'T CONTINUE WITH EGGMAN? at it's worst,i'd say this mod is a 1/10,and at it's best,a 4/10. (seriously how to you get any endings except the 2 bad ones)

Ok nvm I just needed to update, there was nothing to tell me which ver I had.

While this pack is really rough around the edges, I like it. nice use of hook ring, cool bosses, and nice music.

The cactus minus's are evil tho.

I actually rather like this so far. While I've only tried it in online coop, we had quite a blast. Died lots, felt great once we realized how to beat each boss more efficiently, and had some laughs, but that's how we like it. Our tastes may differ from other people though, so I can see how this mod may not be appreciated by them.

My only real complaint of note is that some enemies and their positions can be frustrating, particularly to Amy players.

I think my biggest gripe with this mod is that the levels just aren't really memorable, usually tons of straight corridors with numerous enemy placements that are more annoying then challenging. The most memorable thing about this pack are the really not very fun bosses, especially the one that you have to throw rocks at. The story is pretty meh and verges on being forces fanfiction with how it goes, though admittedly, the two "bad" endings were really funny and had me and my friends dying.

I'll just be upfront, this is probably the worst thing I've played in SRB2 to date. The entire experience is consistently bad from pre-installation to post-credits. The plot is just Forces copied over but with bad fanfiction injected into it. There's no need for the multiple endings, and by extension no need for this to be an exe. Your level design is dated, ugly, cramped, bloated with enemies, and overly reliant on gimmicks that don't even seem conceptually fun, like Minuses carrying cacti toward you on small platforms or the game forcibly uncurling you and resetting your vertical momentum whenever it feels like it, which can and will kill you. The boss fights are the real meat of this whole thing in terms of gameplay and every single one has several glaring flaws I feel like a beta tester should have been able to address. The clone boss causes a memory leak. The first mini-boss flashing the screen red actually hurts my eyes. I have no idea how you're supposed to fight the Heat Horizons and Cactus Canyon Eggman bosses without tanking hits. All of them take far too much damage, it feels like they're double Brak's HP at a minimum.

I really wanted to do a proper, constructive review of this. I really did. But I ran out of patience before the first level was even halfway over and struggled to get to the end for the next few hours after. I don't have it in me to do a solid review of everything in here because that would require wanting to do a second playthrough. This just feels unsalvageable. You'd be better off redirecting this dedication toward individual stage mods and trying to make those actually fun to play.

I'm sorry but I wholeheartedly agree with you about this... This entire thing reminds me of that SRB2 mod from the 2.1 days that was a big fan-fic...

Having sat down to play this today, I can say with certainty my experiences were... eh?
Never in my life has one mod (or game, considering this is its own executable for some forsaken reason) left me feeling so mixed. Conceptually, it seems like it would work well. A bite-size level pack with an over-the-top fanfic style story that doesn't take itself too seriously. But there's a difference between "bite-size" and the game wanting to get itself over with. I saw much of the latter in this project. It feels as though this began development in 2.1, was left on the backburner after Forces, and simmered a good bit until being raised from the grave like Frankenstein. There's not much more to critique, most here have stated there piece as is.
It's just a shame seeing so much ambition go to waste. That's what this was, an ambitious experiment. Nothing more, nothing less. I hope we can all learn from it.
