Reloaded II

Configure the Reloaded II mod injector.
Reloaded II is an open-source program that injects our mods into P4G using the P4G PC Mod Loader program.
Reloaded II calls the programs it injects "mods," but these are not the same as the mods you are probably thinking of (Texture Fixes Pack, etc.).
We will be setting up those mods later with a program called Aemulus Package Manager.
Reloaded II is powerful software that enables arbitrary/custom code execution. NEVER add a program to Reloaded II unless you trust the creator.
Every Reloaded II program used in P4G CEP is open-source and made by trusted community members.
  • Reloaded II: A universal modding tool used by many different games. Best known for being the modding backbone of several 3D Sonic games.
  • P4G PC Mod Loader: A Reloaded II program that loads modded P4G game files in your Persona 4 Golden\mods folder while the game is running.
  • Tiny Fixes: A Reloaded II program that patches several small bugs in P4G PC. It also includes options to skip the intro movie or play the original P4 intro instead.
  • Inaba EXE Patcher: A Reloaded II program that can modify how the P4G.exe executable and the game's data tables behave at startup.

First Launch

  • Open your P4G Mods\.Reloaded II folder.
  • Launch Reloaded-II.exe (you'll have to scroll down a bit).
Make sure to launch Reloaded-II.exe and not Reloaded-II32.exe.
  • Select Update or Download and wait for the download to complete.
  • Reloaded II will automatically close and restart after updating.
  • Once Reloaded II restarts, verify Reloaded II is v1.20.6 or higher before continuing.
  • If you get a tutorial popup, select Skip the Tutorial.

Configure P4G

Open Application Settings

  • Select the Persona 4 Golden icon on the left side of the window (the P4G protagonist's dreamy face).
You'll now be in the Configure Mods window for P4G:

Modify Opening Movie

If you don't want to change the opening movie, skip this step.
You have the option to change the "Shadow World" opening movie to "Pursuing My True Self" from the original Persona 4, or to skip the intro sequence and boot straight to the title screen.
  • Select Tiny Fixes from the list of programs, then click Configure Mod.
Skip Logos and Opening Movie
P4 Opening Movie
If you would like to load straight into the title screen, skipping the startup logos and opening movie entirely, check the Intro Skip box.
If you would like to replace the "Shadow World" opening with the "Pursuing My True Self" opening from the original Persona 4, check the P4 Title Movie box.
  • When you are done, click Save and close the small Tiny Fixes window.

Set Executable Path

Reloaded II needs to know where the P4G.exe executable is so it can launch the game and inject our mods with the mod loader.
  • Under the Main section on the left side of the window, select Edit Application.
You'll now be in the Edit Application window for P4G:
  • Under the protagonist's BIG dreamy face, click the Update button.
  • A file picker window will open. Navigate to P4G.exe in your Persona 4 Golden Steam library folder.
Remember, your path to P4G.exe might not be the same as the one in the picture!
Refer back to Locate P4G.exe if you have forgotten your folder path.
  • Select P4G.exe, then click Open in the bottom-right corner.
  • Double-check that the second line in the Reloaded II window shows your path to P4G.exe.

Create Desktop Shortcut

Reloaded II must be called to inject mods into P4G. Just clicking the Play button in Steam will not inject any mods.
If you would like to create a desktop shortcut to launch P4G with mods, click the Create Shortcut button under the Actions section on the left side of the window.
Check out the Extras page if you'd like to create a shortcut in your Steam library to launch P4G with mods.

Test Run

The following applications MUST be closed before continuing:
  • Samsung DeX
  • RivaTuner Statistics Server (RTSS)
  • MSI Afterburner
  • Razer Cortex / Razer Synapse
  • MSI Dragon Center / MSI Control Center
  • GPUTweak
  • Any other framerate monitor or "game boost" software
This software is known to cause the P4G PC Mod Loader to freeze or crash. For more information, please read the Troubleshooting page.
We're going to perform a test run of P4G through Reloaded II to make sure the mod loader works.
This will also create an empty Persona 4 Golden\mods folder that we'll be working with in a moment.
  • Under the Main section on the left side of the window, click Launch Application to launch P4G.
  • The Reloaded II console window should appear. Just let it do its thing.
  • Make sure the game loads and that you can press buttons/keys on the title screen.
Everything works
Something doesn't work
You're ready to move on! Close P4G and Reloaded II and go to the next step.
Double-check that you set the correct executable path.
If you're sure you set that up correctly, refer to the Troubleshooting page.
