About this mod

Complete overhaul of the entire game to make it more inline with Ninja Gaiden 2 from the xbox 360 while also adding its own mix.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
BEFORE PROCEEDING
This mod is currently in alpha and only Warrior & Master Ninja has the spawns adjusted. Mentor will be added but there is no set date on when

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CRASHES
If you experience a crash, first step is to try and remove any custom outfits as some will crash the game at certain points (with or without this mod). Usually, it'll only crash once and then you can resume playing as normal if you really want to use the costume that's crashing the game.

IF YOU HAVE THE DATABIN FROM NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA 2 BLACK V366.CT PLEASE DELETE IT AND DO NOT USE IT WITH THIS MOD!
SPECIAL K IS VERY UNSTABLE WITH THE MOD AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO RUN ALONGSIDE IT
ASIA BUILD IS NOT SUPPORTED - YOU WILL NEED THE NA EXE

FEATURES

  • A custom spawn system written from the ground up that aims to restore the spawns from Ninja Gaiden 2 (Xbox 360). This includes deleted spawn points from Ninja Gaiden 2 while also providing the ability to create brand new spawn points with unique enemy placement at any point in the map, never before seen. *Please note that while the mod follows the spawn layout of the original, tweaks have been made here and there (this is mostly true for the latter levels, 15 and above, swamp level etc..)*
  • Reverts the delimb system to behave as it did originally in Ninja Gaiden 2
  • Disables micro stuttering when performing obliteration techniques
  • Restores and integrates the windmill, shuriken incendiary shuriken, and gatling gun from Ninja Gaiden 2

  • New OST for the main menu, chapter 1, chapter 14, and chapter 15
  • New lighting for Chapter 1
  • New lighting for Chapter 2 which turns it into night mode (evening mode is also available found separately on nexus mods, will not interfere with the mod)

  • Improved lighting (subjective delete NGS2BGraphics.dll to remove)
  • Restored glossy effect to enemies like NG2 (subjective delete NGS2BGraphics.dll to remove)

And much more...

3. IS Shuriken - auto unlocks in chapter challenge | story mode - found on the IS stand in chapter 4 in the museum
