Game Banana is Bad
 
I just looked on game banana and I am cringed out. The mods are so bad there! And they also rip off other mods like alt sonic and sms. I'm grateful about Sonic Team Jr's choice about having a strict code in order to get on the message board. Thanks guys.

Your welcome! Now you see what kind of dark future we have avoided...

Seriously, there is like, almost no moderation there, I cannot reccomend using GameBanana for SRB2 or SRB2 Kart.

Yeah, Gamebanana has a terrible SRB2 community. Otherwise, it's a great website.

Some idiot named SuperBlur97 promoted his srb2 mod in this https://gamebanana.com/questions/4173

NAR the Fox 08-31-2020 01:20 AM

In all honesty, I can't recommend Gamebanana in general. It's not just the SRB2 part, too. My account almost got banned for posting a tutorial for Sonic Boll (which I no longer play because of that incident.) A SIMPLE TUTORIAL. This makes me wonder what kind of people are even in charge of the site.

SilverVortex 08-31-2020 01:31 AM

the only thing i like about gamebanana is the rickroll pointy and fluffy mod chrispy put on there
it's only a sprite change but it's worth every kilobyte it takes up

khamo 08-31-2020 01:48 AM

SuperBlur97 is such a prime example as to why you should never even go to SRB2GB

VGBoy 08-31-2020 03:54 AM

Sometimes you can find genuinely good effort non-rule breaking mods on GB, but its rare, and the reasons I believe there's hidden gems in the rotton banana bin are that:
- The makers don't have a verified SRB2MB account yet.
or
- It's early access while the SRB2MB version is awaiting approval
or
- The makers like cross-posting in general.

I tried to make a mod for gamebanana, but I'd rather not talk about that. Let's just say it ripped of Alt. Sonic. MOVING ON... SuperBlur97 is pretty cring, but he made alot of great mods such as...
Sonic in SRB2
SRB2 2.2.7
Modern Sonic v5
Tails in SRB2
SuperBlur97 World
It's amazing what this specimen could do! ... ok what the heck is this guys deal? Someone posted SRB2 2.2.6 on Gamebanana, good for them, but SuperBlur97 came in and told him to take it down because it was fake.

Yeah
 
The reason of they publish mods there is because it is easier to publish mods there than on the message board

Which is also the reason why a lot of the mods on the SRB2 Gamebanana are also low-quality and buggy, you can basically post freely anything there as long as it isn’t a virus. But like others had said, there is some hidden gems in Gamebanana due it being widely overlooked as a “dump of random mods without moderation” and while it technically is (The MB is WAYY better), there’s the occasional actually good mod.

Multicolor 09-02-2020 12:03 AM

Most of there are inexperienced people

TehPuertoRicanSpartan 09-02-2020 01:29 AM

Don't you worry, I have submitted my simple SRB2 Lua mod and the moderators approved them.

D00D64 09-02-2020 02:42 AM

[Why did the moderation edit button have to be right next to the Quote button, dangit]

The qualifications for the Message Board releases are so low and easy to meet. The quality level is bare minimum, especially BECAUSE inexperienced creators can get their content out and learn from feedback. But you need to have showed you at least tried. You also need to meet filename contentions so its clear what a file is for, and what version it is, making things easier to sort through in folders and, far more importantly, keeping everyone in sync during multiplayer.

If you can't meet these goals, then you really aren't trying hard enough. Again, this bar is not hard to clear. The most common reasons for mods to be on GameBanana and not here, is if its a deliberate joke, of such poor quality that the user wouldn't be allowed to let it in, or even the user of the mod being a banned user. Sorting through GameBanana's SRB2 and Kart sections are like sorting through trash to find the half-eaten burger.

I'd make a mod if I could make sprite art lol

Icarus 09-02-2020 05:08 PM

Thanks for making this thread, I've been hesitating into talking about this site too.


I don't want to sound like a gatekeeper but imo I would've forbidden GB into hosting SRB2 mods and that the game server wouldn't allow the use of mods that weren't approved by the MB to keep the game looking as a quality product.

CST1229 09-03-2020 10:41 AM

Pre-2.0 SRB2MB, from what I heard in a video, also had no Releases system. Just publish and done.
I think it would have been similar to the current SRB2 Gamebanana, but with actual moderation,

D00D64 09-03-2020 05:37 PM

Believe me, if there was no submissions system and people could just post whatever they wanted, and moderators/judges had to fix it after the fact? I know I certainly wouldn't take that job. The whole point of submissions is to stop non-functional or absolute trash mods from spreading before it becomes a problem. This is also why we're so serious about filenames; there have been plenty of situations in netplay where players effectively had the same file, but had to redownload files anyway because versions were wrong. Or worse, different updates to the mod had the same filename.

If we had to rush in and fix mod issues after a mod has already been released into the wild, I imagine most of us wouldn't even bother.

The_Oofer 09-03-2020 05:44 PM

So I got addicted to gamebanana not the srb2 one btw sorry this is offtopic

Apollyon Woman 09-03-2020 06:59 PM

Another issue people are neglecting to mention is its lack of protection against content theft.


Having discussed it with GB Admins directly, their policy is "assume that whoever posted got permission to post whatever they use". What this means is that sloppy, rushed bootleg ports (or "portlegs" as I've called them) are 100% allowed on the page as long as the original creator is added to the credits section. And it's happened before too! Mighty, SRB2The Past, Subarashii, these are just some of the mods that were up on the page for a while before eventually being taken down.

ClassicNC 09-03-2020 07:30 PM

Actually, the entire Sugoi trilogy was on gamebanana

Icarus 09-04-2020 04:07 PM

Can we ask GB to delete every SRB2 mods and ask server owners to not host unofficial ports?


Or this is maybe a bit too much asking... nothing is stopping people from making and sharing bootleg and low-quality stuff sadly (kinda like the sea of mediocre to garbage Doom wads).

To be fair, SRB2 the past was marked as reusable from the start. However, what killed the portleg was the amount of work to fix up just that version so everything works. The Portlegger was not willing to do the work. (There's a reason I say it's going to be several months for the update.)

Can I just say, I'm loving the term "portleg".

LuxisLand 09-09-2020 11:45 AM

Remember kids!
If you want to download mods, use the Message Board (MB)
And not the Forbidden Banana.
