Default DLL Help.

Hello people, i'm a noob on this forum. i want to start the game, but it says that a libgme.dll is missing. everytime i install it, it installs a DLLESCORT file. and also on the website that i downloaded it it shows a process to do in Windows 8/10. (i have one) that uses Commands and things im not expert. so i just need to have the DLL or i need to do this process? (i tried to start first the Win. file) but when i start the DD. file (SRB2DD) it says is missing the fmodex.dll.

libgme.dll and fmodex.dll should be included with the self-extracting archive from our site (srb2.org), so they shouldn't be missing. Unless you downloaded SRB2 from somewhere else?

DLLEscort is a virus, and is not included with our game through any of the official channels. In the future if you ever need to download a DLL file for any reason, make sure you're downloading only a .dll file or .zip/.rar and not any kind of application (hover over the link if you're not sure). They're small enough that they're offered for individual download and don't need any installer.

You probably downloaded the 2.1.17 patch. Make sure you download the Installer not the Patch.
In case you downloaded the correct installer make sure its size is around 88mb. Probably the download got corrupt and some files were lost (the missing dll's). In that case download the file again.

Aside from your problem. Be careful with those "Dll fixers" programs. They're just malicious programs. Like it was said before, If you have a dll problem just download files with the extension *.dll or *.zip. They aren't that hard to install so you wont need any malicious "Automatic repair" tools.

If you run the game with command line, you need to add the -win parameter to start it up in windowed mode.

Alternatively, you can just use a launcher to start up SRB2 in windowed mode. This one I personally use currently and I think is good: https://mb.srb2.org/showthread.php?t=38488

Yes you're supposed to put it in your SRB2 folder I think.

So. to start the game windowed, i need to start the SRB2WIN.EXE file or the SRB2DD.EXE, or the launcher?

Actually you can make a shortcut to either srb2win or srb2dd (depending on what you use, because these both .exe files change the way the game is rendered, you should try both of them later on) and add -win to the end of the file path to make it run windowed.

But in this case, you would want to run the launcher. You'll find all the options, including the "windowed" toggle

Both srb2win.exe and srb2dd.exe can have windowed mode, so it doesn't matter which you use. The difference between them is mostly just in what interface they use: srb2win.exe uses SDL2 libraries, and srb2dd.exe uses DirectX (with FModEx for sound). srb2win.exe is better for modern OSes and is the main release exe, while srb2dd.exe is the old form of SRB2 from the first few patches of 2.1 (and all versions before 2.1) and will be phased out for 2.2.

If you're playing in single player, you can't change colors. You need cheats for that.
If you're playing multiplayer, then you can change colors by going to "Player setup". You can also select a character and a name from there.

Devmode works for Singleplayer only, you can enable it by typing devmode 1 in console then change color using command color "COLOR".

Code:
devmode 1
color blue

Using devmode and/or a WAD character marks the game as modified and you will not be allowed to save the game until you restart the game.

Unless you add a WAD that creates a custom gamedata, so you will be allowed to save the game on a different save file.
