Training Mode is a modpack for Super Smash Bros. Melee that aims to streamline practice by providing pre-made individual training scenarios. This mod utilizes the event mode present in Super Smash Bros. Melee and reworks them to focus around specific techniques, complete with automatic savestate functionality to allow for rapid-fire practice. Some events have included video tutorials playable in-game (ISO version only) to teach the player about the tech and how to perform it. In addition to these events, Training Mode also includes onscreen text displays which provide you with information otherwise unavailable to you mid-game. Training Mode is available in both ISO and memory card save file form.
This mod's development is supported on Patreon. All pledge tiers will grant access to early versions. Thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support the project!

-"Create Save" - will create the memory card save exploit version of Training Mode to the desired memory card slot. This option is available on the ISO and memory card version of the mod. The memory card version can create the save file without the original memory card inserted, as all of the mod's data is loaded into memory at all times
-"Show Credits" - will display the credits of Training Mode, showing the initial patrons of the mod, as well those who assisted in the creation of the mod.
-added 3 new game modes to special melee.
-Chess Melee - Replaces Super Sudden Death. A port of Achilles1515's game mode where positions and percents reset when a player loses a stock
-Rotation Melee - Replaces Giant Melee. in this game mode, up to 4 players will take turns playing 1v1's. When one player dies, the next is spawned in their place and fights the player they lost to. Percents carry over between stocks.
-Tag Melee - Replaces Tiny Melee. Intended for 3+ players, upon spawning one player is decided at random to be "it" and is highlighted in purple smoke. A hidden timer counts down (random between 10-30 seconds). When the timer ends, the player dies and all players respawn. The "it" player can tag another player by hitting them. The countdown carries over between tags.
