--------------------------------------------
SeventhSentinel--err I mean, Sonic explains the v1.1 patch update


--------------------------------------------

Spoiler: An important note

This game has absolutely no single player content outside of time attack. There are no CPU players. To get the full experience, you have to rely on either splitscreen or online multiplayer. As with most games, hosting games will require port forwarding. The port to forward here is 5029, UDP.

It should be noted that this game has absolutely no clientside prediction whatsoever, and runs on a fairly antiquated client/server networking model. It's extremely likely that you will experience latency in some form. Make sure you join servers that you have a low ping to, even if another server has more players. This will help create a better experience for players across many different regions.




Now without further ado, in Sryder's own words...


SRB2Kart is a classic styled kart racer, complete with beautiful courses, and wacky items. Of course, because it’s SRB2Kart, it has a Sonic twist that really shows the classic charm that a lot of us know and love from the good old days™.

We have 100 jam-packed maps for you to bump, explode, and sparkle your way through, from luscious beaches, to Eggman’s dance floor, to England on a good day. All lovingly crafted by many different people. You’ll notice almost every aspect of the game has an immense love and inspiration from the classic sonic games. From the items such as Ballhog, which literally throws bouncey explodey balls at people, to the maps which are bursting with that Sonic feel.

Of course, you'll only start off with a few cups available, but you can unlock more by playing offline/online matches. Alternatively, you can immediately jump into challenging yourself and race us personally in Staff Attack mode! Don't worry, we'll go easy on you.

Game Modes
We have 2 game modes for you to choose from: Race, and Battle.
Race mode is the normal: Race through the track to beat your opponents, use your items and skill to swooce past the competition, Oh my God what is that following behind me HELP! You know, the usual.

Battle mode asks you to violently throw spikeballs at your friends until they have no bumpers and you have some. But watch out, they can come back with a vengeance and chase you to the ends of the earth afterwards! Or maybe if they’re feeling nice they might help you with a powered up item
chance.

Spoiler: Characters

As you’ll find, we have 5 characters in the base game to enjoy, all with very distinct stats. Before we go into them individually, I’ll explain how our stats work. We have separate variables that effect the way a character plays. Speed, and Weight. Higher speed gives you a greater top speed, but sacrifices your ability to accelerate, higher weight reduces your control over your drifting, but you bump players that you are heavier than more violently. Your combination of speed & weight decide how fast you earn drift sparks. We have this shown clearly on a handy dandy grid on the character selection screen in the main menu, pick the character that aligns with your desires most!

Sonic

Sonic is just what you’d expect from our favorite blue hero! Pretty fast and agile! He’s got some good speed, and can control his drifts pretty well, just make sure you get the drift boosts because otherwise you’ll fall behind!

Tails

Our cute fox boy Tails! Tails has slow speed, but can really get going quickly, he can also take incredibly tight turns all the time, get close to those corners for him to really slip past people!

Knuckles

Here he comes, tougher than the rest of them. Knuckles is average in both stats, he’s very balanced, and likely a good pick if you don’t know who to try first!

Dr. Eggman

Ohohohohoho! Eggman has come along to steal the competition! He’s quite slow though, so take advantage of his fast drift-spark rate and his immense weight to stop others from overtaking!

Metal Sonic

*Loud Angry Robot Noises* Metal Sonic is fast, and heavy. He’ll fly through the courses if given the chance, but his cornering leaves much to be desired…



Bonus Ducks Characters
Included with the main download is bonuschars.kart. We don’t add it by default, but you can easily do so from the add-ons menu for many more characters to play with! A slew of extras, by a trio of our other devs in their free-time, as well as a few Community artists!


The Various Other Things
-Make sure to check out the in-game manual by pressing F1 or using the menu if you need some help or tips!
-We’ve added some extra Quality of Life features from the vanilla game to help out, such as multi-admin and a chat system that is readable!
-There’s a slight lack of documentation for modding currently, we’ll try and get on that as soon as we can.

Music
We plan to redo the crediting in some fashion eventually so all the track sources can be included in-game, but until then they'll all just be right here for very easy viewing!

If you don't have the game, then you want the Full Install. If you already have v1.1 or higher, then you might want to use the Patch to save on download size, but it is otherwise functionally identical to using the full installer on the same folder.

DOWNLOADS:
Full Install (Windows)
Patch (Windows) (Extract and replace files toward root SRB2Kart folder)

Full Install (Mac)

Spoiler: Linux Installation Instructions

SRB2Kart now uses an APT repository via Launchpad for handling Linux editions. Your add-ons and data will be saved in your home folder (~/.srb2kart). To view information about each install package, visit our Launchpad PPA page: https://launchpad.net/~wolfy852/+arc...tu/kart-public

Debian users will first need to use these commands to retrieve the repository public key:
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install dirmngr
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys BC359FFF5A04B56C41DBC134289CABAB043F53A7
Next, Debian & Ubuntu users can run these commands to install the game.
Code:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kartkrew/srb2kart
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install srb2kart
If Terminal does not have a "add-apt-repository" command, then also enter:
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
These instructions are largely identical to base SRB2's, just switched out repo & package names. For more detailed information, visit this page: https://mb.srb2.org/showthread.php?t=43972


The changelogs for every single update can be found here: https://github.com/STJr/Kart-Public/releases

The non-Windows builds are experimental and haven't been tested nearly as much; if you have issues, you can always attempt to compile it for yourself on your own computer: http://wiki.srb2.org/wiki/Source_code_compiling

As far as i know, this was fixed for vanilla 2.2.1.
1.2 should fix this, as far as I know.

Default Online Troubles

Does anyone know of any US (preferably Midwest) servers that don't require a ton of file downloading? My computer is good, not great, and whenever I try to join a server, the game says I timed out because my computer couldn't download all of the files. I love the game but I just can't play multiplayer.


Edit: I didn't try version 1.2 yet. Maybe that will help.


Edit again: Finally, after installing the 1.2 patch, I can play online multiplayer! I kinda suck and place in the bottom 3 every time but I’ll get there (hopefully)

This is a fairly common problem that happens to a lot of people. One thing to note though is that if you timeout while downloading files you can close the game, start it back up and connect to that server again. The download will resume where you timed out so you don't have to start the entire download process over again.

Thanks Zombongo, I haven’t been to this thread since I tried 1.2 but it works perfectly. One last thing, we’re the servers down today? I tried going into online multiplayer and it said that I couldn’t connect to the master server.

I may be wrong but I believe its an issue with the Master Server. Something about a memory leak and it having to restart periodically? That's what I gathered from a few posts across the board anyway.

Hiya, folks! I just thought I'd make a post to help people who have been having trouble downloading/using OpenGL for the Mac version, since there are quite a few issues with it right now, but they're all fixable!

1. Downloading
The link in the main post to download the Mac version is still broken, but you can still download it by going to the Releases page of the GitHub project: GitHub Link
I can confirm it works on Catalina, too!

2. Additional Characters
Some things don't quite work correctly on the Mac build, in particular the built in Additional Characters.kart pack. The pack is located inside the Application Package, but the game doesn't look there for mods for whatever reason. Instead, it looks in the newly-created "srb2kart" directory in your Home directory (The folder that has your username as its name).

So to move it to where it should be, go to your Applications folder, right click on the game's icon and select "Show Package Contents". Then navigate to /Contents/Resources and you will find the "bonuschars.kart" file! Simply copy & paste this to the "srb2kart" folder in your Home directory and you're set!

3. OpenGL
Since macOS typically only uses one executable per application package, there isn't an obvious way to start the game with OpenGL to use 3D models. Thankfully, forum member Lach found a good solution for this!

Open up a plaintext editor such as CotEdit (TextEdit in macOS is NOT a plaintext editor, so do not use it for this) and type in:

Quote:
open /Applications/Sonic\ Robo\ Blast\ 2\ Kart.app --args -opengl
Then save the file with the ".command" extension, which is the macOS equivalent to a .bat file. Make sure to check the box in the text editor to allow the code to be executable, and then you can launch the .command file just like any application!

4. Making Things Pretty
Still, launching a bare command line file is pretty tacky-looking, so let's make it look like a normal app!

Start by single-clicking on the command file we just made, and hitting ⌘+I to bring up the Get Info window.

Then, go back to the Applications folder and show the package contents of the game again, but this time we want the "/Content/Resources/Srb2mac.icns" file. Drag this file onto the icon in the top-left of the Get Info window, and presto, the command file now has the same icon as the vanilla application!

If you'd like, you can copy this file to your Applications folder, and it'll look and feel just like any Mac app! (Just don't delete the vanilla SRB2K, since the command file still relies on that, silly!)

-----------------

There you have it, now the game runs exactly as it should! I hope this post was useful, and that you have fun playing! ^_^

I have a question about the the udp port 5029. Is it safe? I'm not really knowledgeable about this and looking that port online seems to already belong to belong to Infobright Database Server.

The 127 mods limit was needed ? Because having to download 60 mods first time online is pain and even more when you use a limited mobile connection(yeah 600MB of mods is a lot)

SRB2 now got an official Android version... SRB2K Android when?
I understand if you dont want to make it. Its probably gonna cause lag in servers as Android doesnt handle SRB2 Online that well, and adapting the controls to touch screens isnt an easy task I imagine, as its impossible to press 3 buttons at the same time on touch.
