Default SRB2 2.2 Open GL

A basic thing.
First, download 2.1.
Then, copy or drag OpenGL to 2.2.
Open it and....

While I prefer OpenGL, I think I’m in the minority there. I wouldn’t say it’s a straight upgrade, since it definitely introduces as many flaws as it fixes. I just can’t go back to the unfiltered textures of the software mode, is all.
Cool Signature coming in Spring 2023!

Or you create a text document and write this: "@echo off
srb2win.exe -opengl" and save this with a .bat

The SRB2 Launcher "startSRB2.exe" still works on 2.2 as well, works great for launching in OGL as well as loading modifications such as wads, pk3s, etc.

OpenGl actually being true 3D is cool, but I've always wondered why it seems to be less polished than software. In 2.2 it makes everything weirdly darker for some reason.

That's because it is way less polished. OpenGL mode doesn't support a lot of our visual effects, and is hidden as a command line parameter for a reason. Some computers get better performance out of OpenGL mode, but we don't recommend using it unless your computer gets very bad software mode performance for some reason.

Honestly, software is mostly fine.

The only reason I really want access to OpenGL is if I happen to be in the mood for some Ringslinger. The weirdness that happens when you look up or down in software makes it nigh impossible to aim high or low. XD

If the graphics didn't glitch up like that when looking up or down in software mode, I wouldn't give the slightest damn about OpenGL mode to be honest. Software is more than OK for the single player third person modes.
