Default SRB2 on Web Browser!

There's now a public beta for SRB2 in a Web Browser, playable on PC, Chromebook, Android, and even iOS!

https://srb2webbeta.netlify.app/

Mods are supported, but netplay is not available.

The web browser version is developed by mazmazz, with help from Jimita and his Android port.

I did not expect this to work as shockingly well as it does. How does this work?

Can there be a version to run older versions such as Version 0.95, 1.0s 2.0, and/or 2.1?

Hah, awesome. Seen it on Discord. I'll try it asap when I have a working Wifi again. :)


EDIT: I hope once this is final it can be officially hosted on srb2.org i.e. web.srb2.org or something like that. :D

I find this illogical, I thought the point of a web browser game was to be able to play online on the go (like any MMO or even FPS such as Quake Live before it became a paid game on Steam).


How does modding work on browser by the way?

What part of 'RETIRED' don't you understand?

It's compiled into WebAssembly. WebAssembly is a standard that is kind of like bytecode. The browser compiles and executes the bytecode, and bam, there it is.

When you think about how old SRB2 is though, it's hard to wrap your head around it. Pretty neat!

Indeed; running in WebAssembly is one part of the puzzle. The other part is supporting the browser-side code, such as keyboard and mouse controls.

I'm not the first person to compile the game to WebAssembly, but I did decide to support all the browser quirks between Safari and Chrome. That takes a lot of effort.

You upload a WAD or PK3 file to the web page, and the game picks it up. It's not stored on a server, just used locally in the game.

I hear Modern Sonic works very well in it.

Wow! Truly amazing.

Now I'm re-sharing the game with all of the friends I'd previously been pitching this game to... really no excuse not to give it a try now.

I feel a bit honoured to have SSNTails answering to my question, thank you for the answer.


I like the idea of being able to play SRB2 without the need to carry my USB key.

You fools, this is SRB2's attempt to take over our world!

First it invades your desktop, then your phone, then your switch, now your browser! Soon, it will invade your PS4, your XBOX, your vita, your PS3, your PSP, and then...it'll invade YOU.

Neat idea. I'd still rather just download it for better performance, but this is still a nice option for people when they might not just have it available.

Honestly, the best way to play it on a PC is Legacy mode, as the mouselook sucks. And I love challenging myself to not move the mouse throughout the entire level and I use Legacy for that.

When will net-play be supported?

This is the "kids stuck at their classroom Chromebook" option.
