Resident Evil 2 Remake Randomizer ALPHA TEST

This mod randomizes the items in the new RE2 Remake. Please note that this first version is an initial testing version and is very likely to have bugs! If you can report them to me at Twitter (@bennpowell) or via email: I can try to whittle down the bugs as you can all help me test way faster than I can alone :)

Please make sure to safe often to prevent losing too much progress in the event of a bug!

You can try version 0.6.5 BETA *HERE*

If you have any problems or encounter any bugs or think your seed isn't finishable, send your ItemList.txt to me in a pastebin along with a description of your problem on Twitter or Email and I'll do my best to get back to you!

INSTRUCTIONS (more details in the readme)

1) Place RE2RandomizerTrainer.exe & RE2SeedGenerator.exe in the same folder as RE2.exe.

2) Launch RE2SeedGenerator.exe and wait for it to generate a valid seed.

3) Open RE2 either using RE2.exe or through Steam. Get to the Main Menu where you are able to select New Game / Load Game.

4) Open RE2RandomizerTrainer.exe. It should state that it has detected both the RE2 exe being open and the seed file that has been generated.

5) Play the game! When you pick up one of the items in the Main Hall (not the garage in the intro, that key isn't randomized) you should find they have been changed.
