What part of 'RETIRED' don't you understand?

Default SRB2 v2.0 is here!

SRB2 v2.0 is now available.

Why 2.0?

So many changes have been made to SRB2 in the past three years (can you believe it's been that long since the last release?), and since this version is NOT backwards-compatible at all with previous SRB2 versions, I feel it warrants a version upgrade.
The game now has a fully completable single player campaign. It isn't finished, but does look polished.
There are scads of other changes, but to list them would be exhausting. I hope we've exceeded most people's expectations on what SRB2 is capable of - it certainly has mine!

As you may or may not know, over the past year I assembled a team of very talented individuals to work on SRB2 that became known as the "Sky Sanctuary Team". Their work is very much apparent in this release today.

I have also given the SRB2.Org domain and control of the website to Alam and Logan, while Orospakr runs the code repositories and bug tracking.

I no longer have any critical control over SRB2's development. With a wife in tow and a baby on the way, I need to start thinking about other priorities in my life.
Spazzo will likely handle any news updates and small site maintenance from here on out, with Mystic overseeing day-to-day development operations.
Like him or not, with Mystic in control, I am confident that SRB2 can be completed to its original vision and not get mired in the cruft and indecision that plagues so many fan games.

Thanks for 11 crazy years!

Remember to not SPOIL THE GAME FOR ANYONE, guys. I'll gladly remove such posts and if it continues, bans will be handed out. Respect other people, guys.

Because our server couldn't possibly handle the traffic if we put up a direct download link.

Thank God I still have uTorrent around, I'm still trying to get it into my dad's head that not all torrents are illegal. (E.g. this one.)

If some of you don't know what to do with the .torrent file, just download and install a Bittorent Client ( http://www.vuze.com/app ), or use Opera and click the link. ( http://www.opera.com/ )

EDIT: Got the exe, now seeding, let's hope my computer doesn't crash then...

Why not host it on a useless freeware site? Actually, if you are really lazy you download from my http server at
http://3dslice.net/srb2dl.html

(Feel free to post it on the top of the page)
Also why are all 16:9 res brokens D:, and if I select like 1280x1024 half of my screen is cropped >.< To admins feel free to putting that link in the front of the page, save people some time instead of torrents.

Is that some kinda crack at AJ's performance?

Annnyway, I'm liking [spoiler:e1ddc31d75]how you can see the locations of other character's emblems. Tails' THZ1 one is pretty clever.[/spoiler:e1ddc31d75]

Do you want our server killed? Right now, this torrent is loads better that any http solution and should remain so for a good long while. In fact: This is exactly what a torrent is designed for!. In a few days, we will have an HTTP download link on the site soon.

I have not seen this many people post so fast. 2.0 is world-wide. Everybody, let's go tell the people of Srb2 1.09.4 that 2.0 is out! *shot*

...It was a joke.
