Default 2.1: It's happening! Release details!



LAST TIME, ON #SRB2FUN...

<XSpeedGodX> https://mb.srb2.org/showthread.php?p=741164#post741164 <-- WAIT WAIT WAIT...WHAT?
<Torgo> huh
<XSpeedGodX> 2.1.x?
<XSpeedGodX> Does that mean 2.1 will be released before the oldc?
<Prime_2> It's delayed, actually
<XSpeedGodX> Swear to god
<Prime_2> No joke, it really is
<Prime_2> it's a dick move, and we apologize for sending the wrong message with the re-opening of the OLDC.
<Prime_2> It just turns out that we couldn't stick to our original schedule of releasing 2.1 when it's done... we have to wait for about 2 weeks or so until after it's done to release, as it turns out
<Prime_2> by the way, 2.1 is coming out in 2 weeks
<XSpeedGodX> I guess I'll enter the oldc if time permits
<XSpeedGodX> Wait, seriously Prime_2 ?
<MrMystery> oh you cockteases
<RosyPie> ...wait what
<Torgo> FINAL DEMO
<RosyPie> HAPPY SAINT PATRICKS DAY EDITION.
<XSpeedGodX> I'm going to save that text
<MrMystery> final destination
<Badz> I mostly wonder why you'd need a 2 week delay
<Prime_2> testing
<Mystic> The game is "done"
<Mystic> We have to test it

<Torgo> Does 2.1 work better in win8?
<Mystic> for a given definition of "work"
<Mystic> Not any better, no
<Prime_2> You have options though
<Prime_2> 720p windowed mode sidesteps some of windows 8's issues
<Torgo> 720p windowed?
<Iceman404> This is the FIRST time you've kept up to your 'it'll be out soon' word
<Torgo> whaaaaaaaaaaa
<Iceman404> I HOPE it's out when you say it will be :V
<MrMystery> huh?
<Prime_2> Yeah, we've had that for a while now
<Iceman404> Because I'm very proud right now
<MrMystery> I thought it was just 3x windowed?
<Torgo> yeah probably
<MrMystery> ok then
<XSpeedGodX> Should we start map making now
<XSpeedGodX> ?
<XSpeedGodX> Or wait until 2.1 is released for the new features
<Prime_2> well it's off of 720p in the weird way that SRB2 generally is in resolutions, but yeah
<Torgo> man
<Prime_2> maps are fairly easy to port, just some gravflip stuff and linedefs that reference sounds, sprites, and states have to be changed, along with swapping out upsidedown springs/spikes for gravflipped spikes/springs
<Prime_2> IIRC
<MrMystery> so that's it then? 2 weeks?
<Mystic> plus or minus a week, yeah, MrMystery
