About this mod

An arena expansion mod with 60 new stages to battle through, all featuring user-created combatants!

Permissions and credits
Requires a legitimate Steam installation of ACVI App Ver. 60/Regulation Ver. 1.06.1
Other copies and versions are not supported.
Not compatible with other mods.


This mod adds 60 new opponents to the singleplayer arena, each designed and written by a different player from the community.
The new fights unlock as soon as the arena itself does in the latter half of Chapter 1, and can be found in additional tabs in the arena menu.
In terms of difficulty, they're about on par with the vanilla fights; I recommend putting away the Zimmermans for the sake of your own enjoyment, but I'm not your mom (yet), so do whatever you want.

Official soundtrack of Arena EX development:
Tommy heavenly6 - Unlimited Sky

Instructions

To play:
  • Extract the entire mod folder wherever you want
  • Make sure Steam is running
  • Run launch-mod.bat from the mod folder

Mod Engine is included and preconfigured to run the mod with an alternate save file, so it won't interfere with your ability to play online when launching the game normally.
If you need to manually manage your save for the mod, you can find it by following the shortcut included with the mod, or navigate to %appdata%\ArmoredCore6\<Your Steam ID>.
The mod's save file is named AC60000.aex. As a safety precaution, your main save file is also copied to AC60000-pre-arena-ex.sl2 the first time you run the mod, in case you need to restore it.

!! IMPORTANT NOTE !!


If you played version 1.0.1 of the mod, your main save file was accidentally used instead of the alternate one.
When updating from that version, if you want to keep your progress in the mod you will need to manually copy the save file.
Open the save folder, remove/rename AC60000.aex (the alternate save) and replace it with AC60000.sl2 (the main save).
This should not affect your ability to play online as the effects of the mod on your main save should be cleared as soon as you start the vanilla game once, but since we don't know exactly how the anticheat works, it's recommended to restore from a backup if you have one, or run the vanilla game once in offline mode before going online again.

Known Issues

All the modded text is missing!
Sorry, the text only appears when playing in English.
I'll try to improve this.

The AI is kind of weird sometimes!
Sorry, this is very difficult and time-consuming to get right with current tools.
I'll try to improve this.

There's no voice-acting!
Sorry, sound modding isn't possible yet.
This won't be changed.

My character isn't in the mod!
Sorry, I loved them too but sacrifices had to be made. They will live on forever in my heart.
This won't be changed.
