Can't have a patch without it breaking and needing another patch, heh!
This patch fixes controller issues introduced in 1.3.4 with the usage of input hooks.

  • FIXES
    • Fixed Controllers not working on menus anymore as of 1.3.4
    • Fixed tutorial Amy having missing sprites
    • Fixed an issue where the new redefinition of freeslot didn't return values, breaking the few mods that make use of such return values.

Full installer provided here if you don't already have Vanilla SRB2
(File wouldn't upload despite being under the upload limit?)
Hey everyone!
Here's a patch with several major fixes, most notably huge performance improvements.
If you ever had performance issues, they should be gone in this patch!

There are no significant new gameplay additions.

  • GENERAL:
    • SRB2P's EXE has been updated to 2.2.10's codebase which includes all of its features & improvements.
    • Massive performance improvements accross the board.
    • Blaze's sprites & other visuals have been updated to use Inazuma's newly released Blaze.
    • You can now check a Weapon's Skill Slot regardless of enhancement level. The Skill Slot itself is still only active at enhancement level +10.
    • You can now check Subpersonas' Skill descriptions by pressing C in the Sub-Persona menu out of battle.
    • New Skills 'Gry', 'Gryva' and 'Grydyne' (and their multi-target variants) have been added to the Velvet Shop as Skill Cards.
    • New Enemy-exclusive Skill 'Black Viper' has been added
    • Enemies may now use healing and stat normalization Skills properly.
    • There are now variations of the drop animation for 6 and 7 stars items to make it easier to identify them without needing to open the menu.
  • FIXES:
    • Fixed Normalized inputs (Arrow keys/Enter) dropping if the framerate was unstable.
    • Added failsafes to ensure that lingering Garuverse particles despawn when battles are over.
    • Fixed issues with battle entity animations such as getting up after every hit despite being down.
    • Fixed an issue where the accuracy of Instant Kills were not being checked when replacing skills in Rogue Mode, leading to Mudo potentially be replaced by Samsara among other things...
    • Fixed an issue where Rogue mode could lead to enemies using other Normal Attacks as Skills.
    • Fixed an issue where only Shoes, Monitors and Knuckles could be made into Nihil Weapons.
    • Fixed an issue where the affinity helpers would use the default element of your Normal Attack instead of the one from your Elemental Weapon when selecting targets for Auto-Attacks, displaying false information.
    • Fixed several Status passives acting on the wrong status.
    • Fixed 'PSV_COND_RESIST' not having any effect on skills that only inflicted statuses and no damage.
    • Fixed the visual effect on Hunger not displaying
    • Fixed 'Void Strike''s key being mislabelled as 'reseist strike', which was not only wrong but also a funny typo...
    • Fixed an issue where enemies were unable to use healing Skills.
    • Fixed an issue where SRB2P Modding Hooks would fail to receive multiple arguments making a fair deal of them unusable.
    • Fixed an issue where the ceiling height couldn't be changed in Custom Dungeons.
  • MODDING:
    • Added field 'norogue' to attackDefs which disables the skill from being obtained randomly in Rogue Mode.
    • Added field 'noenemycast' to attackDefs which prevents the skill from being used by enemies using the generic thinker.
    • Added several error messages for missing properties when obtaining Skill Cards & Sub-Personas among other things.
    • Added several new voicelines that only play during Tartarus.
    • Added HUD toggles for Vanilla HUD elements.
    • Vanilla characters now use 'SPR2_CSMN' for 'anim_evoker' instead of 'SPR_CSMN'
    • 'anim_stand_hurt' can now be used. This animation loops but does not go to 'anim_stand_bored'.
    • 'anim_evoker_shoot' now functions and can be used. This animation does not loop.
    • Added 'hudscutin' in charStats which allows using a specific cut-in while in Super Form.
    • Added 'persona_pvp' in charStats which allows setting a Persona for use specifically in PVP to allow for greater balance.
    • Added new debug commands: 'd_sethp', 'd_sethp%', 'd_setsp', 'd_setsp%', 'd_setstatus', 'd_setfield', 'd_setholdup'. Type with no arguments for syntax.
    • Deprecated cost type 'CST_SPU' has been replaced by 'CST_SPPERCENT' which consumes a percentage of max SP.
    • Offensive Skills that use 'CST_EP' now use the user's highest offensive stat instead of always using Magic.
    • Custom characters can no longer have more than 8 Skills upon starting a new game.
NOTE: Changes to modding functions and enemy/item/skill tables will be reflected in the Modding Documentation at a later date.


Going forward, Mirror Links (Dropbox/GDrive) will be discontinued, download from the Thread's Download button.
Links for Linux/Mac builds will still be on the OP.


Story mode is still progressing slowly, this patch looks like it is a setback in terms of time investment but these fixes were much needed either way, so no time was truly wasted!
I sincerely doubt anything will be out this year but I hope to have some progress to show before the end of the year.... You know how it is with these almost-one-man big projects, heh!

Accidentally uploaded the wrong Full Download version in the threads download and it's impossible to rectify this without posting an "update"

If you downloaded the full game via the thread download before this hotfix went alive (the version number on the title screen would read '1.3.0', please download the patch (No need to redownload the whole game) and replace the affected files.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
Hi hi, small patch to fix a few tiny bugs that slipped through the cracks!
Alongside said patch, I'd like to announce that the SRB2P v1.3 Modding Documentation is now also available, so go on and create your new unique mods! Do remember that we have a Discord Server in which you can discuss and get help for modding!

Okay, enough rambling, patch notes...

V1.3.1
NEW:
  • Added new customization option for Custom Dungeons
    • Ceiling / Wall height, custom shadow sprites, ability to set Max EP
  • These changes are reflected in the newly updated Modding Documentation

CHANGES / BALANCE:
  • A few enemies in the Monad block have had their offensive stats reduced slightly.
  • The Natural Order Vision Quest now has 5 Homunculi instead of 2.

BUGFIXES:
  • Fixed a typo on the Skill Evade Psy which caused it to be unobtainable via Shuffle Time and would instead yield an unusable Invalid Skill.
  • Fixed a typo in Metal Sonic's animation definitions which caused him not to use the proper animation when using his Melee attack
  • Fixed an oversight where items would always spawn after reloading a Marathon mode save, allowing you to endlessly farm the boss room. No items will spawn after loading a save now, whether or not they were collected before saving.
    • The potential gain from exploiting this far outweighs the loss of 3 item boxes you'll find on the next floor anyway.
  • Fixed a bug where Guarding when under the effect of certain Status Condition would cause a warning
  • Fixed a bug where returning to lobby during a Marathon Mode block transition and going back into a game would carry over the Block transition and its benefits to the new session.
It's been nearly a year, hasn't it? Sounds like a good time for an update!
SRB2P v1.3 will be available in 0 seconds, have fun!

The download is available in the OP

I'd like to apologize for the time it took to get that update out, despite the time it took, this update does not add much new content, but mostly aims to refine the existing content to bring you the definitive multiplayer experience that I wanted to have on the first release. The next major release will focus entierely towards the Singleplayer story mode. ...Whenever that happens!
Alright, fine, I've rambled long enough, you want the changelog don't you, mh? Well aren't you in for a treat...

NEW GAMEMODES:
  • Rogue Mode: Explore Tartarus with stronger enemies that randomize their affinities and attacks accordingly!
  • Marathon Mode: Explore Tartarus from bottom to top, locked into Rogue Mode for an added spice! Use the save points after each boss to take a break between sessions and see what awaits you at the top...
  • Monad Block: BLOCK 7: Accessible to those who have conquered the halls of Adamah, Monad is only accessible in Rogue Mode... This will be the toughest challenge for you to face yet!
  • Void Run: An alternative take on the SRB2P gameplay loop; start with nothing and make your way through various challenges by rather unconventional means! ...Only the most adapatable will survive until the end!
  • PVP: Random Skills!: If you ever thought PvP was unbalanced, wait until you try this! Roll the dice and see what weird combination of skills you'll get to bully your friends with!
  • PVP: Boss Mode!: Even worse, what if a player could take control of a boss and you had to fight them? Balanced? Nah. Hilarious? You bet!

DUNGEONS:
  • In the Thebel Block, you now start at Lv1 instead of 10. Enemies were adjusted to compensate
  • In the Arqa Block, you now start at Lv10 instead of 15. Enemies were adjusted to compensate
  • Past the Thebel block, Tartarus' weird properties can cause floors to be affected in various ways... Both beneficial or hindering...
  • Rare Golden Shadows can sometimes appear in Tartarus' halls... Defeating them might prove troublesome at first, but they can yield rare items...
  • Pesky spikes now litter the floor of Tartarus... You'll have to use your abilities to overcome them by either going above or through them!
  • Weird flashing switches have appeared in Tartarus... They seem to control gates that block items or sometimes even your progress!

ITEMS!
  • Equipment items (Weapons & Wardrings) can now be obtained!
    • Weapons determine the strength of your basic attack as well as the All-Out Attack. They can also give passive combat stats!
    • Wardrings increase your defence against all attacks. They can also give HP and/or SP passively!
  • Brand new redesigned inventory system! Everything is now all neatly organized for your convenience!
  • Rarity: Each item now has a star rarity rating, this is helpful to know how strong your stuff is, but also helps sort your inventory!
  • Each enemy you kill now has an individual chance to drop one or multiple items, you no longer drop 1 item per battle!

SHOP and EQUIPMENT LAB!
  • On each boss floor, the Velvet Room door will allow you to access either the Shop or the Equipment Lab, both held by your lovely [citation needed] attendant, Alt!
  • Purchase or Sell goods such as convenience items, Weapons, Wardrings, Skill Cards or even Sub-Personas at the Velvet Shop in exchange of Macca you obtain by battling!

    • More modding features were planned (Custom Dungeon map editor...) but had to be put off for the time being due to time constraints, they may be added at a later date in a patch. I apologize for the inconvenience.
