I'd be interested to know if without any serious modification to the game engine, if it is possible to support playing as Corona the Crusader of Centy from Ragnacenty better known as Soleil in Europe. Corona plays somewhat differently from Link. Or even to have Corona as an optional second player. The issue is that his Elemental Mechanics are more Polygonal, rather than the Linear Mechanics Link uses, and he has a jumping ability. I'd like to be able to use Corona in a Hyrulean setting with the assets from Crusader of Centy, with his Animal spirit abilities to adjust for hazards normally encountered by Link.

You can use a notion of elemental attack without modify the engine (only with lua attributes/properties in the objects). About the jump ability it already exists in Solarus but you can't customize it too much (the fact you are invincible while jumping is hardcoded I think).

About an optional second player it's not doable right now if I'm remember correctly. Changing completely of hero is possible but it uses tricks and not really good code in the lua, and it's highly theorical and not tested, you could have problems.

I don't know the mechanics of the game, so I don't know what do you mean by the Animal spirit abilities but in first thought, you could use it as magic abilities (here again, pure lua works).

About the polygonal things, I don't know, so I'll let another answer to this :p
