    SRB2 Add-ons, and GPL-compliance.

    Hello, it's been a while since I've been active on this forum, but I just saw this thread and felt I can add a few things. Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. I have two things to say here: The spirit behind the GPL compared to the LGPL (which is specifically meant to protect the freedom of the...

    I have a question about the Sonic Robo Blast 2 Workshop.

    It was just an example. Again — you have to comply with Copyright (do what the author of the mod requests, unless your doing is Fair Use), and if you want to redistribute the mod here then additionally comply with the rules of the SRB2MB, and that's it. It's not me who gets to say what you have...

    How the heck do I install Zone Builder on MacOS without everything going awry?

    Why are you using Wineskin? Why not plain Wine, PlayOnMac, or maybe even CrossOver? (There's also a program called Winetricks that can install various weird DLLs and other dependencies you'd need to run certain programs. You could also try to install Wine using Homebrew, MacPorts, or Fink...

    I have a question about the Sonic Robo Blast 2 Workshop.

    That's not needed. It's also risky if they'd done such a thing; STJr don't need to take responsibility for the rules of other websites. The responsibility falls on the users here. The only "Blue Sphere" mods you're allowed to upload here are those that comply with the rules here. There's no...

    Account login

    That's what every layperson thinks, and it's always wrong. It's a common misconception that hackers try to hunt just big fish, targeting them specifically. Well, that's false. There's also hackers that try to catch as many small fish as they can. They don't have a high target in their mind, they...

    Coming back to SRB2 after a decade-- what to expect?

    In addition to what everyone has said so far: Knuckles and Tails now run as fast as Sonic.

    Can we get the SRB2 2.1.25-1.09.4 MS back?

    Technically, it's still possible to identify someone like that. Someone determined enough could have a friend working at the ISP that leased the IP address to the customer, or bribe them or mislead them, to hand over information about a specific subscriber/customer. Not something that most...

    What in the world is SRB2 Workshop?

    There is a difference between DoS and DDoS attacks. DDoS stands for Distributed DoS. To carry that out, someone would need a botnet or to perform a reflection attack, or something akin to that. Someone just saturating their own Internet connection to choke someone else's connection is just a DoS...

    Why do certain songs on the STJR youtube channel sound way better then they do in-game?

    AFAIK, YouTube uses either Opus compression with roughly 128 kb/s (meaning, 128 kilobits (16 kilobyte or 15.625 kibibyte) per one second of audio) or an equivalently-compressed AAC audio. Out of curiousity, I ripped the SRB2 music, and it seems like they're stored in Ogg Vorbis format (Ogg...

    What version of openGL do I use and where can I find an installer or driver?

    Windows 7 is end-of-life (EOL), meaning that it's dead and harms your security. I recommend you upgrade your operating system, either to a GNU/Linux operating system (more tips and choices here) or to the latest Windows. I recommend Rufus to create a USB drive with the installer of the operating...

    so i cant download 2.2.13

    Assuming you're using Windows and this is Windows SmartScreen preventing you from running the file: Find the file you downloaded (perhaps in your Downloads directory, or by right-clicking on the download entry displayed in your Web browser and choosing to open its destination/containing folder)...

    No cheats in Singleplayer?

    On the SRB2 wiki you've got the article about the console, and from there you've got console commands and console variables

    No cheats in Singleplayer?

    As far as I know, this is expected behavior. There's no "cheats on" mode, there's just different variables that, when not set to their defaults, are called cheats. This is why the command cheats prints the state of all cheats-tagged variables, and cheats off resets them all to their default, but...

    SRB2 v2.2.12 Patch Released

    It's not unheard of in software development to release stable versions when there's still stuff being brewed but in disabled-by-default state or in other development branches in the software's version control repository. Not that I'm saying that this is the case, but it's possible that they've...

    Why are there so many more Kart characters than there are in the base game?

    HD texture pack for 2.2

    I'm pretty sure it's possible to create a shader program that upscales textures (or adds depth using depth maps or whatever). I'm not sure what you said about shading and lighting is true though, it might be possible to create a shader program that renders light well, but unfortunately I'm not...

    What do u think about them adding the srb2k/srb2 kart to Android

    STJr has no real incentive to have as many SRB2 players as possible, other than the natural incentive that every game developer has that doesn't develop games for only themselves. I don't think STJr would ever be interested in officially supporting such a proprietary, dumbed-down platform as...

    Why is my ping always so high?

    The good thing is that the Cloudflare speed test also tests bufferbloat, jitter, and packet loss, and not just idle ping and download/upload throughput. The other good thing about it is that Cloudflare is one of the leading CDN companies in the world, and they've got a huge anycast network with...
