If you have the game running and my editor doesn't detect it, then try running my program with administrator rights. To do this, right-click the shortcut to Fusion's Chao Editor and choose "Run as administrator". This is necessary if you have the game (or Steam) running with administrator privileges, because otherwise my program won't be able to see the game or modify it.

Also, make sure that you haven't renamed the game's .exe file. Some people have been renaming Sonic Adventure 2's "sonic2app.exe" to "Launcher.exe", which stops my editor from seeing it.

To change the colour of your chao, follow these steps:
  • Click "Chao" at the top of my editor.
  • Select the chao that you want to edit.
  • Navigate to the "Appearance" tab.
  • Change the "Base colour" setting in the "Colouring" group to whatever colour you want.
The colours that are available will depend on the game you're using. Sonic Adventure 2 has a huge number of transparent colours.

My chao editor currently doesn't work on save files. Instead, it modifies the game itself while it is running. I am considering adding support for changing the save files directly, though.

Tobi wrote:What is causing that texture problem? Because in my own experience of SA2 PC I found several texture glitches on trees and fruit. Like, when I just got out of a karate match, the texture of my fruit suddenly changes into a more pinecone looking texture. And my planted tree only shows a bit of a tall spike stopping midway, while the fruit is hanging in the air without support.
This happens to me. I think the game renders only certain textures, and that causes the change of the fruit texture. The tree always happens to me. I just accept it and look at the fruit.

Does it work in normal SA2 or just SA2B?
I'm using a cracked version (So I don't cough up $12). It shows as the Battle DLC, so I think it works as both.

Bit late, I already answered that question myself.

EDIT: Also found a way to get both the unlockable gardens easily.
Make a child chao with a maximum tendency towards one of the alignments.
Then change that chao's magnitude and/or the garden scale to maximum.
When it evolves, you'll have that unlockable garden!

Very nice, too bad I don't have SA2B for PC myself.

But you can get any Chao you want, any colour and alignment and type right?

But that doesn't make it fun anymore to breed and discover new Chao for your Garden, as you can get any Chao within a few seconds. :darkno:

I have recently started using the Fusion Chao editor for SA2B, and let me just say it is a great editor, but I have encountered one problem, it wont let me make shiny two-toned chaos. When I do try and create a shiny two-toned they become either all white white with no coloring or a bright color that is obviously not supposed to be in the game

The bright chao IS supposed to be in the game.
Its a new breed (or new look as Crazo call it,but for me,a breed is the different color of each chao.But whatever it is called,its in the HD version.) that maybe prove that the sonic team still care,if even a little,for the chao raising.

^Dude seriously learn how to use words.

Shiny Two-Tone is a breed. It has been a breed since Sonic Adventure 2 Battle on Gamecube. "Bright" Chao are a new version or variation of the Shiny Two-Tone breed. Genetically they are the same Chao, they just look different in the two games. Same Chao, different appearance. They are not a new breed. A new breed suggests a new variable, but all of the variables are the same.

Tweaking the happiness bar in the chao editor doesn't seem to affect it in-game. The chao's happiness could be set to -100 and it still reincarnates. Just thought I should point that out.

Hey there all, just registered to the forums in an attempt to seek help on this matter of mine.

It is to do with the fact that the editor only recognises the "sonic2app" process. This is all well and good, but it means I'm unable to run the game, as when I rename my two exe's, the game won't start properly, and will either exit entirely, or will link back to the "Launcher". I have tried screwing around with it, but to little avail, so is there any help or solution for me?

Apologies if I missed a discussion about this earlier in the thread. I have checked the Steam thread and the suggestions there have helped me little.

When I use it, it won't save the chao I edit. It just keeps them the same :(

Can someone else plz tell me how to stop that from happening, cuz whatever changes I make, they won't save. It just makes the chao look the same! Someone plz help!!!

@Digitalyzed - My SA2HD wouldn't start until I ran both the chao editor and sonic2app as an administrator. You probably tried that already, but there's my two cents.

@DannyBlox - The editor modifies the game instantly allowing you to make any chao you want, but you can't actually save your modified chao garden in-game. If you try to do so, the game crashes. What you need to do is save your chao using the .chao file feature described in the very first post.

I am playing Sonic Adventure two battle for GameCube on the Dolphin-3.0-winn32 emulator. How do I make your chao editor 2.0 be able to recognize my sonic ad2b game so that i may edit my chao? is there a specific kind of pc version of the sonic game i need to use it? If there are only certain kinds of pc files the chao editor can recognize could you please list them for me? :omochao:

It (for now) only works for the Retail and steam releases.

You COULD rename the .exe filename to 'sonic2app.exe', but I have no idea if it would work, because you are using a emulator.

In no way thatd work. They are coded differently because they are for different platforms. That's the simplest I can put it.
