Mod installer and public mods

This took WAY longer than I expected, but here it is.
InterAction Mod Installer (aka IAMI) can install mod files made by our Discord modding team for any game made by InterAction studios known at the moment. It was tested with most game versions and is pretty stable but installation process is slow so I’ll be re-writing it from scratch later to improve performance. For now just keep in mind you can start installation and go drink some tea :tea: (average speed: 10 files per minute).

So, how can you use it?

  1. Download IAMI and the latest CIU.iami file from here and extract them anywhere you want to (it’s better not to use system folders like Program Files as they require Administrator permissions).
  2. Download mods you want. You can install several mods one above another, the last mod installed will only change files it needs to. NOTE: backup is created based on the files before modding, so if you install several mods, backup will contain previous mods installed.
  3. Open IAMI and follow instructions (select a mod file, select a file in the game folder, confirm installation).
  4. Wait till the worst algorithm in universe finishes it’s non-optimised job. DON’T open the game while installing mods. Both game and IAMI won’t like it. You can do whatever you want during installation.
  5. When installation is finished, you’ll hear a signal so you won’t miss it. Just close IAMI after it, either by pressing Enter or closing the window.

How to uninstall the mod

The tool modifies the CIU.dat.hq2x game file and creates a backup of it before doing anything every time you install a mod. To uninstall the last mod, remove/rename current CIU.dat.hq2x and replace it with CIU.dat.hq2x.backup (do not forget to remove the .backup part of the name). It works as long as you don't disable full backup option in configurations file.

There is a problem when Windows Defender recognizes my stuff as a virus. I can assure you it’s not as it’s my 2nd C++ project and I have no idea how to write viruses мояй_discord_emoji Fixed in the latest update.

Please note that CIU only accepts CIU mods files for several reasons I can’t avoid. Also, CIU.iami file must be in IAMI folder in order to be found and work properly.

If you encounter a bug or have mod suggestion, write it in this topic so people responsible for mods can see it. If suggestion worths it, someone will make a mod file for you. You can also ask about it in IAMI Discord server (join).

UPD: Too many updates here so put all in spoiler (last update: 16th of January, 2021)

UPD: @ScarletCuboids Made an IAMI Discord server where you can also discuss, get or request some mods. They often appear there faster than here so join if you’re interested.
UPD in UPD: Ramon left his server but it’s still working.


UPD2: As this topic got closed and I don’t see any serious reason to unlock it, use the Discord server from above to request mods.


UPD3: My school project is near to completion and now I’ve started working on complete rewriting of IAMT and IAMI from scratch to make them faster and maybe more cool-looking (no GUI tho, still learning this part). Also I’ll make an attempt on replacing functions which trigger false antivirus warnings (yes, I’m fighting with antivirus too). The only thing I can recommend for now is to make manual scan of .exe and with high possibility antivirus will say it’s safe. This update will be useful not only for those who use mods but for those who create them too: rewritten tool will allow to put some functionality I couldn’t add before for code crowdness reasons and speed of repacking files in IAMT will be even higher than IAMI (currently IAMI is twice as fast as IAMT, so now you know why we don’t share it to public: it’s annoying and not clear to use. People who ask for it just won’t be able to do anything with it).

The Lunar Capital Expedition

By ScarletCuboids

Recruit #8775 found something on the moon. It’s some sort of city, technology there is way way more advanced than us. The UHF decided to launch an expedition mission. Little they not know, The Henpire already invaded the moon place…


This mod replaces the CI3 background with Lunar Capital from Touhou Project. Perfect for frozen missions. However, due to color, this mod is somewhat a disadvantage because of the bright color, clashing with the other colors, blocking your vision or some shit. It also replace the hyperspace with “Kaian Passageway” (Touhou 15 lore story shit idk).

DAlien Oofbreak 3: Invasion

By Dawid8


Trailer: DAlien Oofbreak 3: Invasion Trailer - YouTube

The CD" is back, and it wants revenge. Will you figure out who truly stole the pizza and entertain the narrator, or is Earth doomed?

This is a mod for Chicken Invaders 3 Remastered. Its a sequel to my other unreleased mod, called DAlien Oofbreak 2: Invasion which was made for Alien Outbreak 2: Invasion.

It replaces a lot of the sprites, all music, and some of the sounds and it has been designed to be silly.

Download: Link

Note: The public release of the mod doesn’t contain the text changes present in the trailer.

Touhou Playable Danmaku Pack

By ScarletCuboids

Normally I would bring this in the IAMI but I’ll put the weapons in the library instead. These are danmaku bullets, they were originated from the Touhou Game series over hundred years ago. Now here, these are the danmakus. We have upgraded, enhanced and empowered so it could fit your spacecraft guns. These are the weapons:

Ion Blaster → Spirit Beater

Used to be a weapon owned by a shrine maiden who have retired. Now weaponized, dealing more physical damage more than ritual. The paper melts upon contact, stinging your enemy.

Neutron Gun → Enhanced Magic Missiles

Used by a magician who lives in a forest. Now a deadly weapon against evil Henpire. Totally Awesome.

Utenstil Poker → Throwing Knifes*

Used by a maid of a household. These silver throwing knives are able to weak your enemy with a single stab. And with many of them…heh…they don’t stand a chance *the Engrish is intentional, it stands for Firepower.


NOTES:

  • This is the first version of the mod so it’s not the best. I will remake it when I could
  • The bullets are just ripped from the touhou games. Probably will be drawn by me in the next version (or at least, tracing it)

The 666 series

By Orandza

CI3.666


Oh no, Hilary Kliton is back in high definition and she wants to make every1’s internate speed bad using internate explorer(4kbs max upload and download speed with 1000ms ping at best)! The world’s only hope is you, VLC media player, because it is an epic player just like you. Use Avast! Antivirus to protect yourself with more strongness and use epic weapons such as pins, platypus bullets, swords, aaaaaaa and more! Will you be able to provide the internet with the best speeds, or will shitty internet and epic memes beat you easy peasy? Find out now…

This is sort of a meme mod for the latest CI3 version, starring Internet Explorer as the main villain(as such, a lot of the sounds and sprites are based around it and windows in general), tho there’s also a lot of other unrelated stuff. All sounds and majority of sprites were replaced with dumb stuff, and in general the mod isn’t supposed to be a serious one(tho the music isn’t meme-y like everything else is).

You can download the mod here(also includes credits to everyone who contributed).
Sound-only version here.
Graphics-only version here.

CIU 666

Music-only mod featuring all the tracks from ci3.666, plus the planned music that will be used for ci4.666 and ci5.666(ci2.666 and ci 666 too if they get made). Also replaces all of ciu-exclusive tracks. Out of all tracks featured in this mod, only one is meme-y…can you find out which?

Download link here.
PS. Game over, stage complete and suspense tracks aren’t featured in this mod.

Deathsmiles II - music pack (extras included)

By @Cure643
We’re finally there. so, the community literally did an shump music pack such as eastern radio station to this game for only the touhou ones (expert not one did an cave music pack) but eventually i was thinking to do an shump music pack from an cave soundtrack and the rest it would enjoy the greatest experience on it.

Deathsmiles it’s my favorite cave franchise with the soundtrack compared the other cave soundtracks that it already had, so i’m working on the sequel’s soundtrack in universe and then it literally worked pretty great back in december of 2021 before the release of deathsmiles i & ii for the consoles that it was took pretty shortly but eventually i was thinking to release it for once at all, sort of.

so, i’m gonna to show you…:


Ye, that’s right it replaces normal music to an experience that you haven’t seen it
before: deathsmiles ii - music pack! (includes extras and 2 versions if you want to pick it anything if you want it!)

You would download this music pack in there:

Original link: it’s in there on it! (The newest version of this pack it’s coming soon but eventually in meantime it’s your chance to getting with the patch on it at the bottom down!)
Mirror: There’s another one there on it, i guess.

PATCH (1.00 MASTER VER. to 1.01 MASTER VER)

Original link: there you go, about it!
Mirror: coming soon…

If you had for some issues for installing it, just let me knew as long we did it make it for once!

If you wanna to see the credits in there instead in the readme that it already had, there we goes!

Cure: thank you so much as long we literally did making this mod and hopefully, you’re gonna to enjoyed it on it the only thing along with editing the sounds and music correctly in these tracks!
VerMishelb: for creating this tool between with the mod installer on it to do messing up the game’s himself you’re the best!
Manabu Namiki,Noriyuki Kamikura,Yoshimi Kudo,Motoi Sakuraba: the composers of deathsmiles ii and deathsmiles iix were much slaps to listen them.
InterAction studios: for creating the universe that were to giving in an mmo to an franchise.
CAVE Interactive Co., Ltd.: the developers of deathsmiles series.

Bugs along with some issues about this mod:

1st one: if you using the version 99 of the game’s himself which it has the christmas content on it it wouldn’t work that’s the different but eventually you had to wait when it changes to the normal one in the newest version of the game then replace it with this one until for now with the newest update, i’m gonna to adding this support in the future, i’m pretty sure on it! it has been fixed that issue in the latest version of the game but eventually enjoy this newest experience that had been changed it and also don’t worry about the christmas support it’s in future.

Plans to do adding something in newest update of this pack:

i’m planning to adding It would including the dlc tracks on it compared to the original tracks were it’s slighty different such as there’s the some remixed versions of the original tracks with greatest things, so i’m adding it in newest update later on able to do.
and also, on christmas eve…'s one (as known on this holy night… in i & ii versions of the translation) were the intro cutscene music it’s just keep shortly before the stage part has been already started, so it’s gonna to including this newest update of this pack.

This works with the older games too, right?

Very simple mod idea - a port for the low-alpha version of Positron from CIU into CI4/5. Simple enough to do where this tool isn’t really necessary, but it’s a small QoL thing that I’m sure non-modders would appreciate.

It even works for piggly and CI1 which was not intended.

4 Likes

A Utensil Sprite Swap for the Ion Blaster in CI1 could be fun, lol

(To be super clear, these are all just idle suggestions tho - I’m not “requesting” mods like I’m sure people will start doing soon, aha)

A question, Is there any risk when using this mod?

Well, mod file can be corrupted sometimes if we put wrong files in mod and this can break the game, but you can always restore backup of your hq2x as IAMI saves it near original by default. You can turn backups off in config.

Question - If I have a manually modded version of a CI game, should I revert it to vanilla before booting IAMI the first time?

how to use multiple mods? why i cant select like 3 mods at the same time

It’s better to do so if you used QuickBMS with files HIGHER than original ones, but if you didn’t, it should work just fine.

@peterexited You can. Just install one above another.
