Greetings everyone!


I'm very happy to announce the release of SRB2 Hub!
(Formerly known as SRB2 Rock)
The project has been restarted from scratch to make sure nobody's rights are violated by any sort of stolen content.

First of all I would like to apologize to anyone whose work has been, let's face it, stolen by me. And while I'm not trying to deny my fault in this, I'd like to mention that the original SRB2 Rock was never meant to be released, at least not in it's current form. It was something for me to try out my skills on which is the reason why there are so many seemingly useless things in there as well as tons of bugs and other unpleasantries. The wad, in fact, was leaked by a person who for their own safety shall remain nameless. Regardless, I do feel sorry for my actions.

Now then, it is time to explain what SRB2 Hub is exactly.
Well, it just what the title implies, it's a hub which contains a shortcut to most stages in SRB2.
The main idea was to allow easy access to any map with all Chaos Emeralds in netgames.


There are two main areas:

Gameplay Area.
It contains:
1. Level Select
This room holds teleporters to the map of every zone in the main SRB2 campaign which, in turn, contain a shortcut to every stage.
2. Bonus Level Select.
Contains a shortcut to four hidden stages.
3. Master Emerald Altar.
Just like in SRB2 Rock, it contains the 7 Chaos Emeralds for easy collecting as well as the Master Emerald which can transform Sonic into Super Sonic.

Hangout Area.
It contains:
1. Living Quarters:
An area much like the one that has the zone teleporters in it, but it holds six rooms and a shower instead. Every room (including) the shower can be closed and opened manually from the inside.
2. Cafeteria:
Just what it sounds like, it's a cafeteria. You can choose on of four treats and deliver it to your table of choice via little teleporters. Unlike the rest of the hub, it has different music playing in the background. (5 imaginary cookies to the first one who can guess where the track comes from)
3. Cinema:
Once again it's just what it sounds like, A cinema that plays movies. Three of them actually. They are just looped animations, but I still consider it a nice touch.
Note: it may or may not crash if you switch the movies around too much, so be careful. If it's too unstable, I'll replace it with something else.
Have fun!


Latest Update:


Version 1.3
Notes: This wad still needs some fixes. Thanks to everyone pointing stuff out.

Changelog:
-Bugfixes


Older Updates:
Spoiler:


Version 1.2
Notes: Another update because I had time and inspiration to do some stuff.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
-Made many improvements to ERZ hub
-Replaced and alligned some textures everywhere on the map
-More minor tweaks and edits


Version 1.16
Notes: Yet another tiny update.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
-Renamed Theatre to Cinema
-More OpenGl fixes
-More minor tweaks and edits



Version 1.15
Notes: Another minor update. This will probably be the last for now. Unless more bugs are made known to me.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
- Fixed a few issues present when running this thing in OpenGL
- Tweaks to CEZ hub.


Version 1.1
Notes: I lied! Here's another update!

Changelog:
Spoiler:
- Revamped GFZ Hub. Now with more texture allignment and less sneaky stage entrances!
- Fixed some minor issues.


Version 1.0!
(1.01 Quick Fix, Sorry)

Spoiler:
Major Update!
Firstly, I split SRB2 Hub in three maps:
An entrance, the old 'gameplay area' and the new 'hangout area'.

Entrance:
Basicly, it's a technical map with nothing much in it but the exits to the other ones. It's only purpose is consistency, which I'm obsessed with. Don't pay much mind to it. You don't come back to it, once you leave it.

Gameplay Area:
This is what SRB2 Hub was up until this version. There are some changes here.
- Added SRB1 Remake Level Select to the Bonus Level Select.
- Added Special Stage pictures/titles to make selecting them more visual.
- Fixed and tweaked some minor stuff in the zone hubs.
- More Legacy (with benefits).

Hangout Area:
A completely new area that I've been working on for some time now. Honestly I'm not as happy with it, as with the main area, but I still think it's worth putting here, just to see if you people like it. =)

This thing contains three rooms:
- Living Quarters:
An area much like the one that has the zone teleporters in it, but it holds six rooms and a shower instead. Every room (including) the shower can be closed and opened manually from the inside.
- Cafeteria:
Just what it sounds like, it's a cafeteria. You can choose on of four treats and deliver it to your table of choice via little teleporters. Unlike the rest of the hub, it has different music playing in the background. (5 imaginary cookies to the first one who can guess where the track comes from)
- Theatre:
Once again it's just what it sounds like, A theatre that plays movies. Three of them actually. They are just looped animations, but I still consider it a nice touch.
Note: it may or may not crash if you switch the movies around too much, so be careful. If it's too unstable, I'll replace it with something else.

Also this version has a noticeably bigger file size, so that's something to be aware of.

Well, that's about it, let me know what you think of this. Thanks.

EDIT: Totally forgot to mention that this map now screws with your 'playersforexit' to cover up some of the issues that I just couldn't fix.
Namely, it sets it to 'one', when entering the gameplay area and to 'all' when entering the hangout area.



Version 0.65 (Version 0.66 Quick Fix)

Notes: It's a small update, but there's something much bigger coming.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
- Remodeled the Special Stage Warp room to be a lot more compact
- Fixed Special Stages not loading in Coop.
(They still repeat infinitely, because I don't know how to fix that yet.)
- You now go back to the Hub upon finishing PTZ, SHZ, AGZ or ATZ.



Version 0.6:

Notes:
Finally able to do stuff again thanks to LoganA. Here's the update that was supposed to be released 6 hours after the initial release.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
- Added beautiful 3D signposts unique to each level in place of yellow floor marks.
- Added a semi-hidden Special Stage Warp room to the Bonus Level Select
(Note: enetering a special stage through here makes you replay it over and over)
- Various tweaks to THZ and ERZ hubs, as well as AGZ and ATZ rooms.

So um... I'll post updates and an actual download link as soon as (or if) I can.
Sorry for the inconvenice everyone, but being blacklisted there isn't much I can do. I'll be very surprised if this thing will even let me post right now.

So in the meantime I can only ask moderators to inform me if there's any hope of getting out of this situation. Just have to note that I didn't (at least I think I didn't) do any of the stuff you usually get blacklisted for.

Tor is a system designed to provide anonymous browsing by routing requests through series of exit nodes... essentially an advanced "proxy". It has legitimate uses, but there's also a lot of people that abuse the system's anonymity and use it to get around bans and post illegal content, which is why we added a blacklist for it.

...Now that I think about it, I think I read about Tor while researching Anonymous for a school paper (it was an article about how anon took down a Tor site that was hosting child pornography...)

The Linux port is still having a fatal crash at the Castle Eggman Boss, so this is exactly what I needed! God, it looks beautiful too, I feel very relaxed walking through it.

Now I can finally see all the stuff past Castle Eggman that everybody's complaining about. =P *bricked*

I love this mod, the music sounds so nice and the map looks epic.
I noticed that the warp in the middle of the emerald room sends you to spring hill instead of the black hole/hidden emerald stage. Srb1 level select is sadly missing, would be epic in multiplayer.(Maybe make the door behind the spawn point lead to that ?)

I'm in love with this wad already. I mean, wow. And from now on, I'm hosting this on my server for any episodes for the vanilla co-op. Man, this Hub world is just too good! Now if it only supported the Match and CTF stages, That would make my day!

Is the warp in the middle of the special stage hub supposed to lead to Spring Hill? It looks a lot more like a Black Hole warp to me.

About the special stage warps. I think I found the reason why everyone is being teleported to Spring Hill.

Here's a little something I found after testing:
Spoiler:

Single Player:

Coop:


I have no idea why this happens, but I'll try to think of something.

Oh and just in case some of you didn't know, SRB2 Hub loads when you start a new Single Player game.

Oh hah, I remember finding the old SRB2 Rock shortly after it came out. With my old Metropolis Sprint level used for Dark City 1~ if you'd have asked I'd have given you permission to use it ;) either way, I'm not bothered and this is actually pretty neat now, nicely done.

I have one suggestion: Make it so when you complete a whole zone or a special stage, it teleports you back to the hub. Just copy-paste this code into your MAINCFG somewhere and it should work.

Spoiler:
Code:
Level 3
Levelname = GREENFLOWER
Act = 3
MusicSlot = 3
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 1
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1
BonusType = Boss

Level 6
Levelname = TECHNO HILL
Act = 3
MusicSlot = 3
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 4
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1
BonusType = Boss

Level 9
Levelname = DEEP SEA
Act = 3
MusicSlot = 3
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 7
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1
BonusType = Boss

Level 12
Levelname = CASTLE EGGMAN
Act = 3
MusicSlot = 3
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op
NextLevel = B0
Weather = 1
SkyNum = 10
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1
BonusType = Boss

Level 13
Levelname = ARID CANYON
Act = 1
MusicSlot = 13
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op,Competition,Race
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 13
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1

Level 16
Levelname = RED VOLCANO
Act = 1
MusicSlot = 16
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op,Competition,Race
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 11
RecordAttack = true
LevelSelect = 1

Level 30
LevelName = PIPE TOWERS
MusicSlot = 30
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op,Competition,Race,Mario
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 30
RecordAttack = true
Unlockable = 10

Level 41
Levelname = AZURE TEMPLE
Subtitle = ~PHANTASM~
MusicSlot = 99
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op,Competition,Race
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 35
RecordAttack = true
Unlockable = 7

Level 58
Levelname = SPRING HILL
MusicSlot = 29
TypeOfLevel = Singleplayer,Co-op,NiGHTS
NextLevel = B0
SkyNum = 29
Hidden = true
NiGHTSAttack = true
NoVisitNeeded = true
Unlockable = 12
Grades1 = 20000,40000,60000,80000,100000,170000


It would add a lot of polish to this thing.

EDIT: I just found out the Special Stages don't work (Spring Hill still does though), so that's sad.

They work in single player only for whatever reason, so it's not his fault.

Thank you. And I'm glad that you aren't angry at me for my outrageous actions, because, you know, I kinda feel bad for what I did.

Hmm... It does seem like something I would want to implement and since you already provided the level headers, I think I'll make use of them in the next version, at least partially.

As for the Special Stages, I might just try to seal them off for Coop so that they only open in Single Player until I am able to formulate a way to make them work the way they're supposed to. I still think that very few people will actually want to play these in multiplayer anyway.


EDIT:

Thanks for the heads up! It will be fixed in the next update then.
