Shadowgrounds mods on Desura


Two small (texture replacement and/or with small gameplay tweaks) mods for Shadowgrounds are now supported on Desura. In fact, these two are the only released ones - although both installments of Shadowgrounds have an extensive modding support, there's very little modding activity from the community itself, and more SG levels than mods saw daylight.

Shadowgrounds is easily moddable, all you need is to copy appropriate game files to your own directory in "Mods" folder and start changing textures, scripts, etc. There's also one hidden flaw - there are no model exporters/importers released.

On the other hand, source code of Shadowgrounds and its sequel executables are available. Perhaps there's still much room to mod independent games such as SG.

Decided to replay Shadow Grounds and also try out this mod with it, after activating the mod via the launcher, is it suppose to update the launcher with additional resolutions including 1920x1080 ? Since it doesn't display that after opening the launcher again, nor can I select it anywhere else, in-game included.

Should I just tweak the cfg. file to get the resolution needed ? Also seems like the cinematic cutscenes don't work in this either. Only able to get that working by copying over the Video file into the beast mod folder.

How add RPG elements to the Shadogrounds scripts? E.g. health and aiming increasing with monster death count.

This is great, Shadowgrounds needs more mods, it's too bad that every other one seems to have gone under.

Shadowgrounds source code (of the executable file) is already available.

At least you can download it through Humble Bundle, dunno if they shipped it with other versions.

So you can use even their engine, only their licence disallows any commercial use of it. Shouldn't be any problems with using their source code in noncommercial projects though - and if you are successful, maybe you could strike a deal with them, too. :-)
