Sonic Mania (PC)

Here we will explain how to use Sonic Mania with Crowd Control. The “Encore DLC” is needed for some effects to work, but this mod is still usable without it.

We will be using a mod manager to allow effects to work. Head to and grab the latest download. Unzip the contents of the zip to your Sonic Mania install. If your using steam, it should look something like this:

  • Download the Crowd Control mod here.
  • Copy the contents of this zip to the mods folder in your Sonic Mania install. Should look like this:
  • Hit START in the Crowd Control desktop app
  • Launch ManiaModManager.exe from the Sonic Mania folder.
  • Make sure “Chat Vs Sonic Mania - Crowd Control” is checked
  • Save & Play from the Mania Mod Manager!

NOTE: Other mods may work, but are not completely supported.
CodenameGamma suggests the following settings in the “Codes” tab of the manager:

  • Debug Mode (incase you get stuck)
  • Infinite Lives
  • Disable Background Pausing
