Okay, if being serious, Extended Patch for Shadow PLUS is finally released, that project took much longer then we expected, but with that, we made this addon so high quality and optional as possible.

(!!!) But! Before we going into all main features, I need to guide about how to install this Patch, and yes, it's a patch, don't be surprised why Shadow PLUS is in the Blue Sphere section.

(!!!) Also, if you want to play with Shadow PLUS on the Master Server - you should turn Addon Downloading OFF and tell the others to download patch from this addon page.

Text guide:
1. You need to download the latest version (v1.3) of original Shadow from Message Board.

2. Then go to this page, press the "Download" button to download "CL_ShadowPlus-V1-Patcher.zip" zip-file, then unpack it (7-Zip is recommended) on some separate place like Desktop, for example.

3. Put original Shadow file ("cl_Shadow-v1.3.pk3") to the "CL_ShadowPlus-V1-Patcher" folder.

4. Double-click on "apply.bat" and... Done. Patched Shadow PLUS addon file is complete.

5. Put "CL_ShadowPlus-V1-P.pk3" file in SRB2 Folder (or exactly, to the addons folder) that game can see your addon.

Now you can as play Shadow PLUS! Stay in addon' overview, if you want to know about details!

Now...
Let's Talk about Major Features that we made!


Let me tell you right away, these main features are demonstrated with the PLUS control scheme, which can be changed.

Chaos Snap now have SEPARATE button!

Srb20155


Yep. Now Chaos Snap have completely separate custom button, which can be configured (about that a bit later).
No random Homing Attack bonks onto walls, enemies, monitors, etc!

Homing Thok... but more Optional?

Srb20156


Shadow has Homing Thok now, which kinda weaker than Sonic's thok, so don't worry about it.

To ignore any object during a Homing Attack, hold down the SPIN button while in mid-air and then press JUMP to perform a Thok. However, you cannot use any Shield Abilities, except for the Armageddon Shield and Whirlwind Shield while falling.

You also can Thok after ONE Chaos Snap, if you gonna use ALL TWO Chaos Snaps, then you can do only Homing Attack.

Menu with bunch of Options!

Srb20159


We decided to do Custom Menu to navigate through options more easily!
More details in the next spoiler down below, because there's so much to tell about every option.

Okay, let's describe every option on this Menu!
First off to open this menu - write "s+_menu" command.

Control Schemes

We have decided to create Three Control Schemes to make it easier for many players to customize this character to their liking, as not everyone will like PLUS default control scheme.
Pretty much everything we already told you almost everything in Major Features' spoiler about PLUS control scheme.
But let's quickly go over the controls.

Here's the list:

PLUSINVERTHYBRID
Mid-air jump - Homing Thok
Custom Button - Chaos Snap
Mid-air jump - Chaos Snap
Custom Button - Homing Thok
Mid-air jump - Chaos Snap
Custom Button - Chaos Snap

NOTE: With PLUS and INVERT Control Schemes, around the enemies/monitors/etc, you can hold Spin while midair then press Jump to perform thok instead of homing attack. Although, you can't do any Shield Abilities, besides Armageddon Shield and Whirlwind Shield in falling state.
HYBRID Control Scheme though, you can do Shield abilities, since there's no Thok on this scheme.


Custom Buttons

There's nothing much tell. Can select any Custom Button from accessible list of buttons, such as:
  1. Custom 1
  2. Custom 2
  3. Custom 3
  4. Toss Flag
  5. Fire Normal
  6. Fire

Homing Attack Type

There's come about interesting extra stuff, can be certainly improve your Homing Chains!

Type - MOVEExample
Unlike, original Shadow' Homing Attack momentum
(which is HOLD on options),
where Homing Attack momentum depends
on how long are holding jump, with this option,
momentum depends from your movement now.
If you move before Homing Attack
- you gonna save your speed and move forward.
If you don't - Your speed drop to zero.
Srb20161
Type - HOLDExample
HOLD we left as option,
if in some case some don't like this
new homing attack type momentum.
Nothing much to say here, so uh... Here's example of HOLD type.
Srb20162

Chaos Snap Type

At the request of one beta tester, we decided to add one additional feature that may be useful for those who play with the Strafe camera.

Srb20164


ANGLE option let you Chaos Snap from Camera Angle, this means you can't Chaos Snap to left or right, which, again, can be useful for someone.

I'd give this a 5-star, but some of the button mapping feels weird.

It doesn't belong to blue sphere section as it should have moved to red sphere section.
