Answers to frequently asked questions.
This page is for answers to general questions about P4G CEP.
For assistance with common issues during setup, refer to the Troubleshooting page.

Is P4G CEP a good choice for first-time players?

Yes. We've worked with the modding community to carefully select mods that create a "vanilla-plus" game experience.
If you'd like to lean more into the "vanilla" than the "plus" side of things, with just QOL mods and no changes to the original game balance or artistic choices, we recommend disabling the Aemulus packages in the Expansions and Balance sections before building (and don't use any of the cheats, obviously).

Can I use P4G CEP in the middle of my playthrough, without starting a new game?

Yes. P4G CEP is fully compatible with unmodded P4G save data.
Likewise, you will not need to start a new game should you choose to stop using P4G CEP.

Can I still earn Steam achievements while using P4G CEP?

Yes. You can still earn every achievement in the game.
Note that if you are using the Ultimate Persona Compendium Registration mod, the protagonist's ultimate Persona will count towards 100% completion of the Persona Compendium and the Thorough Bookkeeper achievement. In order to earn this achievement, you will need to either fuse this Persona in New Game+ or avoid using this mod until after you have unlocked the achievement.

Will I be banned from P4G's online features for using P4G CEP?

No. As far as we know, nobody has ever been banned from P4G's online features for playing with mods or cheats.

I've heard about a "large-address aware patch" for P4G.exe that reduces crashes. Do I need to install that?

It's already installed! As of P4G v1.1, the executable is pre-patched to be large-address aware.

Can I use Mod XYZ with P4G CEP?

Depends on the mod. In general, the more core functionality a mod changes, the less likely it is to be compatible with P4G CEP.
Some mod creators will let you know on their mod's GameBanana page if they are compatible with P4G CEP; others will have specific instructions on how to make the mod compatible.
We have a "Help Me Add" channel on Discord if you need cross-compatibility assistance with a specific mod.

I found a really cool mod, please put it in the pack!

That's not a question.

I found a really cool mod, please put it in the pack?

Eh, close enough.
Chances are that if you've seen a new P4G mod on GameBanana, we've seen it too, and we're either deciding whether it's a good fit for P4G CEP or checking if it's compatible with the mods that are already in it.
We're always open to suggestions, though - if you drop a comment on GameBanana, Nexus Mods, or Discord, we'll make sure to read it and get back to you.
