This was a couple years back, think late-ish 2.1 (like 2017).
Youtube recommendations had got me interest in this, for like two years I was just watching SRB2 mods and playthroughs. Then comes around 2.2, I didn't (and still don't) have a PC or laptop to play it, so it was another silent year. Then in May, the Android Port (which was deemed unofficial at the time) was here for all androids to play. Wanting to play the mods myself now, I discovered the MB at the same time of the Discord.
...And now we are here! Just a guy who loves SRB2!
