yeah make sure to load HD textures before alternative mouth (use the arrow to move the mod)

Thank you. :sway:
EDIT 1: Is it possible for me to edit the new .exe to set the chaos drives to what they original settings? I kind of miss the effort. You can just tell me how to do it myself if it makes it any easier for you. Thanks again.
EDIT 2: Thanks.
What, Christmas ended? Whatever, I'm leaving the decorations up!

I'm also selling a Heart Fruit, I thought buying the last would make it more valuable and increase the demand, it didn't.
Anyway it's still sold out and I'm still selling! Buy It!

Does this mod implement all the chao garden features from SA2 Battle? Like the breeding and everything? So that I could refer to the SA2 Battle database for info

No. It doesn't.

Because the data for that is already in the game.

You don't even need to download the Battle DLC.

The Steam (And the Xbox 360 and PS3.) re-release version is really just Sonic Adventure 2 Battle without the Chao Karate, intro, logo, and I think some 2P mode characters.

So, you can just use the SA2B info right now, the only real difference is the way some breeds of Chao (Shiny Two-Tones) look.
The actual breeding and raising mechanics are the same.

Alright cool thanks! I have some more few questions

I enabled the Chao World Extended code but I can't drop my chao in the lobby. Was it loaded correctly? This concerns me because i hope to get character chaos in the future.

And regarding the chao immortality code, im assuming chaos can still reincarnate since it says the dead cocoon has been removed?

While I can not tell you if the mod was successfully installed, I can tell you Chao will still reincarnate, but never enter "dead cocoon".

In technical terms, the Chao is having it's happiness set to 99 constantly. This means the Chao will not die even if you hit them... A lot. It will always be happy.

For dropping your chao in the chao lobby, you have to press your blue action button first then you can do it. By default its the "U" key on the keyboard.

Of course, I still get the same error, is there any download that's not a virus? It seems really stupid for Steam itself to not have the file from the start.

Right here. (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=44337)

But, it's less of a shader and more of an enabled feature on certain graphics cards.

A new update of chao world extended is coming !

Chao world extended v7

This is a huge update so before install the v7 you have to remove almost everything from chao world extended v6.8 (except the saves)

This update will contain :

New code : Lucky Chao
there 1/60 that a chao can born with a hat, or toy or lesson

New code : Powerful Chaos drive
before the poweful chaos drive was in sonic2app.exe, now there in the code so you can choose if you want or not have powerful chaos drive
for people that don't know what they do : 1 powerful chaos drive instant lvl up the chao

New code : Chao Counter
this code will count how many chao you have in the garden, the counter show when you press start
so it will be easy to count chao especially for don't fail the mate chao

New code : Always Baby Chao by chaogardenbuster and me
the baby will never evolve until you disable the code or the baby reach one of the stat lvl 70
you probably can make a chao life longer

New code : SADX Chao Alignment
Hero and dark character can't make baby chao hero/dark anymore, just like SADX the only way to make baby hero or dark is the fruit

New code : Remove mean Eye for Hero Chao
when chao evolve on dark, they got mean eye
now if a chao with mean eye evolve on hero, the mean eye are back to normal

New code : Chao world Time/weather
add a time/weather system in the chao world, the gardens will change to evening version then night version
the weather will happen when the chao news will say it (more info below)
of course the chao will act differently depending the time
(thx for chaogardenbuster making rain version of chao garden day and night)

Code updated : Chao world extended
The main code contain something special called "Guest Chao"
this is a feature for user using import/export .chao file with chao fusion editor and people who want chao from other player but don't want to edit them
Spoiler:
a Guest chao is a chao from a friend in your chao world, what's the difference well here the difference :
- a guest chao can't love you
- a guest chao can't change form
- a guest chao can't lvl up
- a guest chao can't die/reincarnate
- a guest chao (if it's a baby) can't evolve

how to make one :
1 - pick a chao you want to send to a friend
2 - go to kindergarten then the fortune telling house
3 - add the red heart icon (when you rename the chao)
4 - confirm

now you have to open Chao fusion editor and export your chao with the heart you added (be careful we don't see the heart in the Fusione edit)

/!\ You can't leave the kindergarten and the chao world until YOUR chao heart is removed

after export your chao on .chao, go back to the fortune telling house and remove the heart (or close the game but you might lose your progress)

you did it, you make your own guest chao on .chao file now you can just send to your friends (your friends must have chao world extended)
Code updated : More Sick Chao
when the chao is now heal by the doctor, he can't get the same sick until 30 minutes of gameplay
it was annoying to heal your chao then the chao go sick again 1 minute after heal

Code updated : 2p Chao world
add splitscreen in multiplayer chao world

Code updated : Auto Generate Stats
then stats now will increase very slowy until lvl 10 and not until 250 points
work for all the chao and not only the baby anymore

Code updated : Better Personality
the chao personality will set depending the chao face, and his evolution
yeah that's right you can actually change your chao personality with the evolution
of course each personality will make all the chao different than other chao
- Curious Chao are the chao that play alot with toy than the other chao
- Cry baby Chao are the chao will cry easily and don't move alot
- Energectic chao will move alot
- Some chao will react over the character you choose, some chao don't care
- some chao eat more (or less) than other chao
- some chao will sleep more (or less) than other chao

Code updated : More chao animation
When chao start fly they don't fly on circle anymore
when chao cry there a higher chance that they move and cry the same time
The chao face will infect some chao act differently
the "derp" chao will make the chao walk dizzy after trip
some chao will move differently compared to the other chao (so we can notice a Energy and a Lazy chao)
The dark and hero chao have a special animation


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mod updated : Chao world extended
Add 2 new channels :
- Chao News : this channel will say what happen in chao world or what's gonna happen, or say some stuff that you maybe already know but if breaking news happen, don't miss them, just saying ;)
- Chao in space : because why not

Add 16 musics to the radio of dark garden

Add new names in the fortune telling house

Possible to switch ChaoSkin/save ingame :
- press the number in the keyboard numpad to select the save you want to use in the stage select (that will change chao skin too, NOT THE LOBBY, only chao skin)

key 0 : SONIC2B__ALF (the original save)
key 1 : SONIC2B_1ALF (save 2 with day lobby chao skin)
key 2 ; SONIC2B_2ALF (save 3 with Starlight Lobby Chao skin)
key 3 ; SONIC2B_3ALF (save 4 with Temple Lobby Chao skin)
key 4 ; SONIC2B_4ALF (save 5 with Cartoon Lobby Chao skin)
key 5 ; SONIC2B_5ALF (save 6 with Aqua Lobby Chao skin)
key 6 ; SONIC2B_6ALF (save 7 with Labatory Lobby Chao skin)
key 7 ; SONIC2B_7ALF (save 8 with Gallery Lobby Chao skin)

(more skin are coming in the next update)

of course some chao skin are updated, if you want to try follow that little tutorila in the spoiler
Spoiler:
how to prepare your savefile : (if you already created them with the lobby save)

- go to Sonic Adventure 2\mods\ChaoWorldExtended\Save - Lobby Name\gd_PC\SAVEDATA
- copy your savefile
- past your savefile in Sonic Adventure 2\resource\gd_PC\SAVEDATA
- rename your savefile correctly like SONIC2B_1ALF if it's a save from Day lobby (listed above)
- repeat the same process for other save
- done you're ready
if you don't want to try that, you can keep the lobby save and ignore the switch system
or.. you can do both..

and That's all for today !

So I'm having an issue and I can't seem to find an answer anywhere, so I thought I might ask here. The mod loader is loading mods perfectly fine, but nothing in the codes tab works. I've enabled a few of the codes, like most of the advanced and all of the detail codes, but I can't put down Chao in the lobby, zoom or change black market items with the D-pad, and the music still plays with the code to disable it on. I just had a look at the log file and it's saying the code file isn't in the correct format, any way that could be fixed?

EDIT: Oh alright, nevermind, apparently using the newest version of the mod loader is the issue there, I guess something changed about codes in the year since the one packaged with this was made.

and Chao world extended v7 is now release !

thinks you should know :
- there a high chance to crash if you use for the first time Chao world time/weather
- the New chao world lobby (that was in v6.8) will be upload on zip "alone" with update chao skin, i didn't put in chao world extended v7 because the pack will be too heavy to upload
- i will upload other pack like lobby pack, and Garden pack

other than that, have fun !

Oversight: Chao that can't walk can still do the sad walk animation when sad.

One problem I'm noticing is that some of my Chao sleep forever. :C I waited 20 minutes for them to wake up and they didn't. I woke them up myself and they immediately went back to sleep. Is there any way to fix this and still use the more personality mod?

it depent what code you enable, if you enable the code Chao world Time/weather, that's normal

in NIGHT : Chao and Hero sleep, Dark are awakened
but in DAY : Dark sleep, Chao and Hero are awakened

it doesn't affect if it's raining/cloudy or the chao live in dark garden

if you didn't enable the code Chao world Time/weather, please tell me what code you enabled

Huh, that's...a lot of content actually. Nice to see how far Chao Garden modding has come since several years ago when I was trying to change the models for the SADX Chao Gardens! I'm most interested in all those alternate colors, but the alternate garden themes and the "legitimate" method of getting Amy/Knuckles Chao strikes me as really cool as well, especially considering how the former implies that it uses more than one save, and thusly, allows more than 24 Chao to be raised in one garden. I'm going to have to see if I can get this mod working later, I want to try it out now.

Ah! Okay, thank you! Is there any way to force nighttime/daytime or is it random? I'm noticing daytime far more than any other time of day in the gardens.
