Because recent additions to the mod suite save directly into your save data, and I'm unsure of the amount of free time I'll have to update the mod suite after the 20th of this month, I want to make everyone aware of the possibility that you will be unable to play the game at all after the update until I've found the free time to update.
This really only applies to custom parts and custom moves, but if you use them on any of your edits, there's a chance that your game will not run after the update as the information for those items is stored in your save data regardless of whether or not you have mods patched in. This means that unlike previous updates, where you could just play the vanilla game while you waited for me to update, that may not be an option for some of you this time around.
The only work around would be to remove all custom parts from all your edits (you don't have to delete the .tex files or anything, just remove the parts in edit mode) and all MovePack/Custom Moves from your edits. You can use the option on the Testing Options tab of More Match Options to find edits that contain custom moves or edit parts.
The Mod Suite could take it's usual 12-24 hours to update or it could take weeks (depending on the amount of changes they make to the underlying code), so if you don't want to potentially be locked out of the game for weeks, I recommend heeding my advice and temporarily moving away from custom parts and moves. You've got two weeks to make the necessary changes...after that, I won't entertain any "My game is broken" posts or questions...because lets face it, you're a cunt who didn't read this and you deserve all the broken you're getting.
With the news that the update will not hit PCs until "September" I'm discontinuing the Mod Suite for the foreseeable future. It was one thing to make time for it when it was only a week into classes, but now it's going to be at least a month into classes and I've already got over 50 pages of research papers due and I haven't even attended all my classes for the first time yet...so making time for it in the thick of it is just not going to be possible.
SO THE OFFICIAL STANCE IS NOW IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE USING MODS, DO NOT UPDATE YOUR GAME. IF YOU RUN THE UPDATED GAME, IT WILL UPDATE YOUR SAVE FILE WHICH WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY MAKE IT INCOMPATIBLE WITH MODS THAT REQUIRE READING THE SAVE DATA (READ: MOST OF THEM). INJECTION POINTERS WILL ALSO CHANGE, WHICH MAKES PATCHING WITH AN OUTDATED MOD SUITE VERY MUCH NOT RECOMMENDED.
