** How to install **

Extract the entire content of the archive where River City Girls is installed. The install folder on Steam is usually "Steam\steamapps\common\River City Girls".

It should replace the "Assembly-CSharp.dll" file located in "River City Girls\RiverCityGirls_Data\Managed".


** How to use **

Next to the "RiverCityGirls.exe" file, you should have a "ModData.json" file. Open it with any text editor.

Following the order of the file, this is what you can modify:
  • "allowQuickSkip": Can be set to true or false. if true, allows to skip any video, dialog and the whole intro by pressing Start or Escape once.

  • "startFromMainMenu": Can be set to true or false. If true, always start the game from the main menu.

  • "skipStartMenu": Can be set to true or false. If true, always skip the "Press Start" menu (A.K.A. Title screen).

  • "interactActionId": Can be set to any "action id" like "block" or "recruit" (full list just below). It will replace the button use for interacting with doors or grab objects on the floor. The game is using the "QuickAttack" by default which can be annoying when fighting next to a door or a weapon.

  • "instantInteraction": Can be set to true or false. If true, it will make interaction with doors and bus stop instantaneous. Like in the version 1.0 of the game.

  • "playerOneInputConfigs" & "playerTwoInputConfigs": Each line can be set to a keyboard keycode (full list just below). Remap each action to a new keyboard key.

  • "forceXInput": Can be set to true or false. If true, it might fix some controller related bugs like controlling the two players with only one controller or the controller's inputs being not detected at all.

  • "usePS4buttonPrompts": Can be set to true or false. If true, it will replace the Xbox controller’s input prompts by the PS4 controller’s ones.

  • "displayProgressionInfo": Can be set to true or false. If true, it will display a detailed breakdown of the currently selected save in the save selection menu.

  • "swapPhoneNavigationButtons" Can be set to true or false. If true, it will swap the "Recruit" and "Block" buttons on the controllers (LT/LB and RT/RB).

  • "vSyncCount": Can be set to 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4. 0 will deactivate the vertical sync and decouple the game’s framerate to the monitor refresh rate. Doing so will usually cause “screen tearing” but will allow to use frame limiters (see below). 1, the game default, will sync the framerate with the monitor’s refresh rate. Using 144hz monitor will make the game target a framerate of 144. As the number is the ratio between the monitor refresh rate and the framerate, 2 will make the game target a framerate of 72 (for the same 144hz monitor). Most user needs to keep that value to 1.

  • "targetFramerate": Can be set to -1 or any positive integer. This setting is ignored if the vSync is activated (vSync sets 1,2,3 or 4). If set to -1, the game will run as fast as possible (This will kill your battery very fast). Anything above 0 will use Unity’s built-in frame limiter to limit the framerate to the indicated value. Expect screen tearing when the camera is moving around in game.

  • "useCustomFramelimiter": Can be set to true or false. If true, the game will use a custom Frame limiter to do the same thing as described just before in the "targetFramerate" section. It might give better results than the built-in one. Don’t forget to set the targetFramerate before using this.

  • "displayDamageOnHit": Can be set to true or false. If true, the amount of damage will be displayed when the enemies or the player characters are hit. An exclamation mark will be added to the damage indicator when the “Bomb Bra” effect (One hit KO) is being applied.

  • "xpGetTextColor": Can be set to any real number between 0 and 1 for the Red, blue, green and alpha channels of the desired color. It corresponds to the desired color of the xp gain feedback displayed when an enemy is defeated. The alpha value (“a”) is ignored but setting it to 0 will pick the game’s default feedback text color.

  • "xpGetTextFontSize": Can be set to any positive integer. It defines the font size of the xp gain feedback. The game’s default is 80. Setting it to 0 or less will pick the default value.

  • "hitDmgTextColor": Can be set to any real number between 0 and 1 for the Red, blue, green and alpha channels of the desired color. The same usage as "xpGetTextColor" but for the Hit damage feedback.

  • "hitDmgTextFontSizeMin": Can be set to any positive integer. As the size of the Hit damage feedback is actually dynamic, a minimum and a maximum size can be set. For the players, the size depends on the amount of base damage compared to all the other move of the player’s character. For the enemies, the size is determined from the portion of health lost from their attacks.

  • "hitDmgTextFontSizeMax": Can be set to any positive integer. See "hitDmgTextFontSizeMin".

  • "moreInfosInUseableShops": Can be set to true or false. If true, the shop selling foods or other useable will make it clear if a character already used an item. It will also display the items' stat gains.

  • "loiterSelectedByDefault": Can be set to true or false. If true, the "loiter" option will be selected by default after selecting a file. Making it unlikely to start a new game plus by mistake and reset the story progress.

  • "startSelectedByDefault": Can be set to true or false. If true, the "Next" option in the selected by default in the file settings menu.

  • "noTutorialInNewGamePlus": Can be set to true or false. If true, remove the tutorial in New Game Plus.

  • "characterByDefault": Can be set to Misako, Kyoko, Kunio, Riki or left empty (""). If set to a character name, the character selection screen will try to select that character by default for the two players. If value is set to locked character, left empty or invalid, the default behavior will be used.

  • "unlockSecretCharactersOnceForAllSave": Can be set to true or false. If true, unlocking the secret playable characters only need to be done once in order to make them available for any save.

  • "fixBooksBug": Can be set to true or false. If true, fix a bug that prevented the Book items to work properly when using a character other than Misako.

  • "fixMaxStaminaBug": Can be set to true or false. If true, fix a bug that prevented the phone interface to display a maxed-out Stamina stat.

  • "activateTrainingMode": Can be set to true or false. If true, allows to use the F1 to F5 keys to switch on and off different features related to "combo training".

  • "enemiesScalingRatio": Can be set to any real number between 0.1 and 20. Will change the size of the enemies. :D

  • "gameplayModifications": This section contains flags that change aspects of gameplay

  • "activeRecruits": Can be set to true or false. If true, change the recruit system entirely. Recruits will now actively participate to the fight until they are taken down by the enemies or until the player left the current room. Summoning a recruit costs a heart, as well as letting a recruit get KO'ed. Press the recruit button again to dismiss before they are KOed.

  • "quickComboOverride": Can be set to true or false. If true, after purchasing extensions to the quick combo, you can still do the finisher early by holding up while pressing quick attack.

  • "backAttackCombo": Can be set to true or false. If true, in all combos where you can combo into a heavy attack, you can also combo into a back attack by holding back while pressing heavy attack.

  • "backAttackAutoParry": Can be set to true or false. If true, all back attacks have an auto-parry property against all non-boss attacks coming from the back.

  • "heavyAttackGuardBreak": Can be set to true or false. If true, forward + heavy attacks will break the guard of non-boss enemies.

  • "sharedRewards": Can be set to true or false. If true, all XP and money from fighting enemies will be shared between players in coop mode.

  • "monkMode": Can be set to true or false. This is a challenge mode where you play in poverty. No money will be earned (though you will start with all techniques unlocked, and burgers are free during the Godai burger quest). Enemies will have a 20% health bonus, act 1 and 2 enemies will be slightly tougher, all bosses will have double health, and Sabuko will have a nice end-boss surprise for you. In return, all characters will start with both Kyoko's and Misako's starting equipment. You may want to put on those gym shorts, since you don't have a lot of other ways to get health back :)

  • "alwaysKeepWeapons": Can be set to true or false. If true, the player characters will keep their currently held weapon when entering a boss room.

  • "useJsonLocalizationData": Can be set to true or false. If true, the game will use the localization file located in "RiverCityGirls_Data\StreamingAssets\LocalizationData" instead of its internal data.

  • "localizationKeys": A list of localization keys only used by the mod. Can also be used to replace any existing key used by the game.

** How to uninstall **

If you want or need to restore the original files, you should be able to do that on Steam by using the "Verify integrity of the game files" option.

In your steam's library, Right click on the game name, properties, local files. The option should be there.


Enjoy! 🥳

...and posted!

Note that I've been playing vanilla for a while before generating this output.log.

Thanks for doing this!

I just added a version of the mod for the Good Old Games version of the game.

You can grab it here:
https://github.com/MoArtis/RCGMod/releases/download/1.2/RCG-UserXpMod_GOG_1.2.zip

Anyone using the GOG version, Let me know if it doesn't work properly. 😁

빅스팀맨 Oct 27, 2019 @ 6:09am 
Great mod.
I'm using it with white color for damage just like River City Ransom EX(GBA game) and green color for exp gain. I think it fits well.

So I'm kind of lost on how I can actually get into the game and play, I've got to the point where I select one of the two girls but then I'm just kinda lost, I've tried basically all of the keys and none of them really work. I've never really done stuff like this either so

"Confirm" is the Jump button.

Bump (because this should be a sticky) :wdbdrink:

Out of curiosity, is there a reason why training mode doesn't offer an invincibility option for the player? Mainly as it would be great to practice parrying or just generally get a feel for the game without having to worry about losing progress due to deaths. I've only gotten a little bit into the game regardless since I've been playing co-op with a friend via Remote Play Together, so perhaps this issue becomes less of a problem later on, but enemies are rather relentless early on.

Чувак огромное тебе спасибо!!!!:steamfacepalm:

Late to the party but this mod is amazing. It's basically impossible to learn how to fight well without seeing the damage, or remember which consumables you already used once you're juggling four characters. All these crucial features and you integrated them so seamlessly, the vanilla game feels incomplete by comparison. Thank you so much for this.

Personally I'd love having an air throw button (heavyAttack + specialAttack), like assigning it to the block button since it doesn't do anything in the air. But that might be too contextual to include, so maybe I just need to keep practicing. Wish the game would tell me if it's the input or the timing I'm doing wrong.

Will this disable achievements?
mariosonicman1 Jan 11, 2020 @ 6:04am 
I can conferm it doesnt. so your fine using the mod.
Alua Jan 14, 2020 @ 2:58am 
Tell pls how to correctly edit enemies and items?? Modifying .json files does nothing
Elder Jan 14, 2020 @ 10:40pm 
Only wanted to use PS4 buttons but I got so much more, thanks for this, seriously!

Also thanks for including the GOG release, much appreciated.
