The TRUE "Hyper Sonic in Mania" mod returns from SHC 2022!
HYPERMANIA is a mod for the Sonic Mania decompilation by Rubberduckycooly and st×tic that adds fully featured hyper forms into the game! no compromises like missing Super Flickies or half-broken palette cycling are present, (almost) everything is here and accounted for!
To activate a Hyper form you can press Up + W (or whatever you have the super button mapped to) while in a debug mode OR you can play through the game normally while collecting Super Emeralds by finding Super Rings that start spawning in the place of Giant Rings after collecting all 7 Chaos Emeralds, similarly to S3&K (NOTE: due to time constraints Encore Modes' special stages are currently used as a substitute for new ones).
Each Hyper form has an innate ability to never drown as well as a unique Hyper Ability for each character. The Hyper Abilities for the main 3 are carried over from S3&K with alterations here and there while Mighty and Ray have new abilities exclusive to HyperMania. More information can be found in the MANUAL.md file included in the mod.
Extract the mod to the 'mods/' directory located in your Sonic Mania Decomp install, make sure that it's containted within a folder itself (can be called anything but you should name it 'HyperMania/' for the sake of transparency).
The mod has 4 downloads available:
- cutting-edge RSDKv5U + Mania (Windows)
- cutting-edge RSDKv5U + Mania (Linux)
- legacy RSDKv5U + Mania (Windows)
- legacy RSDKv5U + Mania (Linux)
If your still running the 1.0.0. decomp releases download a legacy version, if you're using a recent decomp build (i.e. compiled it yourself) use a cutting-edge version.
Also some things to keep in mind:
- The downloads provided were built for x64 architectures ONLY, if you're running a older machine they might not work.
- Make sure to back up your SaveData.bin and Achievements.bin, i've never had any problems with these files when testing but I think it's worth doing just to be safe.
NEW FEATURES FROM SHC 2022 VERSION:
- Super Flickies attack all bosses
- Super Rings + Hidden Palace Zone
- Save game support

If you would like to keep up with the mods' development you can follow it on the github repo where I push commits on a semi-regular basis as well as occasionally upload alpha builds.
