Dreamcast Conversion is a modpack to make the PC version of Sonic Adventure DX look and sound like the original Dreamcast version of Sonic Adventure. This is done by reimplementing Dreamcast assets (levels, textures, sounds, object models, special effects and branding) in the PC version. The modpack also includes custom HD textures for the majority of ingame menus and other GUI assets. A companion mod recreates events and challenges that were previously only available on the Dreamcast through memory card downloads. All of the above (and more!) can be downloaded and installed in one go using a universal installer developed with this mod pack in mind.
Dreamcast Conversion and related mods are designed for use with SADX Mod Loader and the 2004 PC port of SADX. The installer can convert the Steam version of SADX to the 2004 version, which supports the Mod Loader.
Today's update brings a lot of very important structural changes to the Dreamcast Conversion modpack. It's very important to get this update. Here's how you can do it:
1) Use the installer, which will set everything up for you automatically.
Information for manual install users: this update of DC Conversion uses a different folder structure (yes, again, sorry about that) and removes individual level mods. To keep up to date, please delete the following mods:
DC_General and DC_Branding
All Dreamcast level mods (DC_Bosses, DC_Casinopolis, DC_ChaoGardens, DC_EggCarrier, DC_EmeraldCoast, DC_FinalEgg, DC_HotShelter, DC_IceCap, DC_LostWorld, DC_MysticRuins, DC_Past, DC_RedMountain, DC_SkyDeck, DC_SpeedHighway, DC_StationSquare, DC_SubGames, DC_TwinklePark, DC_WindyValley)
Optional mods (RevertECDrawDistance and SADXStyleWater) - but keep Time of Day if you have it there
All individual DLC mods (DLC_ATT, DLC_Christmas98, DLC_Christmas99, DLC_Famitsu, DLC_QUO, DLC_Halloween, DLC_LaunchParty, DLC_Reebok, DLC_SambaGP, DLC_Y2K)
Do not delete the following mods: Sound Overhaul 2, HD GUI 2 and mods made by other people (Lantern Engine, Dreamcast Characters, SADXFE, Onion Blur etc.) will remain separate mods so you need to keep them.
Here's a detailed list of changes since Update 8:
What will happen with individual level/DLC mods? Those will be deprecated soon, and the Mod Loader will show you a warning saying those mods are no longer updated. Please remove all old mods for the updated single mod version to work properly.
