4-Player Support?

Post  RADRaze2KX on Wed Jul 13, 2016 3:04 am

Hi guys. I grabbed SORR back in April of 2011 and played for a few hours and put it away (friendly CPU was atrocious.. I see 5.1 fixes this a lot, so I'm back). I'm curious to know if there's a mod that allows 4-players (local). My girlfriend and roommate would love this game but then one of us would always be left out since IIRC it's only 2-player. Thanks!

Sadly, no. The modding community limited to adding new levels, items(including breakable items), and if you play your cards right, enemies(which is something the community is in the verge of learning how to pull off). Bomberlink doesn't plan on releasing the source code, and the files are encrypted for some reason. So, sorry to say, but there's not much we can do for you.

Perhaps you're right, graylandertagger.  The maximum number of players are allowed in Streets of Rage Remake is two, like most retro video games in the 20th Century that permit multiplayer participation.  The reason why Bomberlink (the author of said program) decided to keep the source code private so that no-one will try to modify certain parts of the game's internal contents, claiming it as their own project.

I wouldn't say sadly, we can pretty much edit everything that matters in the game. To be honest I wouldn't even care if we weren't able to edit characters (which we are to an extent).

You guys ask for 4 player not taking into account that SoR (except maybe SoR1) wasn't built to be a 4 player game and seeing that SoRR is built off of the last two entries of the series, a 4 player mode wouldn't be very fun even 2 player on it's own can be chaotic.

Some people like to eat the same food everyday, others don't. Point being, everyone is different (want different things).
I think the player vs player mode could be quite fun four player.. the main game however would be too hectic... But, it could have its place in the game...

The answer though is, no, it is 99% that it will never happen.

A 4 player beat them up game can work if it was designed this way since the beginning....which is not the case nor for the SOR games nor for SORR V5. 100% affirmative it won't happen.

Best we can hope is that if SOR4 ever happen, it allows such a thing.

When inquiries like this happen, they call to build an (actually good) OpenBOR mod for 4 players. SORR definitely won't.

I don't see how that takes away from my point but I agree. I'm not against 4 player at all especially for versus mode as you proposed but SoRR (nor the main series really) certainly wasn't built for 4 player as far as the main game is concerned and I wouldn't really expect to see it for an offshoot bonus mode like versus.

Good responses, guys, thank you. Some classic beat 'em up-style arcade games were four player, and fantastic as such (The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time, and the run-and-gun Sunset Riders)... I was hoping there'd be a way, but also pondering out loud, I suppose, but it's good to know what the game is capable of. Thanks again!

Don't forget the X-men arcade game too.

Remember people, quality over quantity. Even 1 Max alone, or 1 Max + 1 Adam, or 1 Max + 1 Mr.X, or 1 Mr.X + 1 Shiva, can demolish everything on sight! Strength is not in the numbers, no, but in the technique! What a Face
