Sonic Robo Blast 2 (v2.2.x) for the Nintendo Switch



SRB2 is finally playable on the Nintendo Switch! Not really sure what else to say except the notes below. Big thanks to carstene1ns for his work on the initial port; I really only did some polishing work to get this up and running. The game mostly runs at its full framerate (35 FPS).

I've moved most of the details of this post to GitHub in order to make it easier to maintain. Check the link below for the instructions, download, and source.

(Note to mods: I've made this a separate thread for 2.2.x. If you think it'd just be better to move and update the old thread then trash this and let me know.)

Obligatory: You jailbreak and run homebrew software on your switch at your own risk. STJr and the SRB2MB takes no responsibility for the results of doing so.

1. you cannot even homebrew the switch lite yet. different hardware
2. it wouldnt do anything to the switch itself other than a possible ban.

also, i'm not too seasoned on linux-based ports, but would opengl ever be possible? i wonder if it would enhance performance

opengl is bad. it looks horrid, and is terribly optimized, i highly doubt ogl could do anything to increase performance.

Also, i really hope that 2.2 could get a port for the 3ds, would be really great to not have to hack my switch since i dont wanna get bean'd

The very beginning of CEZ2 already runs at 8fps, I am sure that OpenGL would improve performance at least somewhat. Overall the performance isn't especially amazing, which is likely the main factor that prevents a 3DS port from ever happening.


Switch hacking is also pretty safe as long as you don't do things like pirating games or cheating online, I've actually had my Switch running cfw while connected to the internet (no, I'm not using 90DNS) for a few months and haven't been banned. (all I use cfw for is home menu themes and running homebrew like SRB2, using things like sysmodules may increase your ban risk, nobody's willing to test that)

I wonder if Sega would actually make this game official (like Mania) somedays.


This port looks good but I won't modify my Switch for now.

You do know that's physically impossible, right? I'm not even going to bother writing why since it would take far too long (there's a lot of reasons) and ultimately it would just be a waste of time and energy.

It is possible to inject games into a cartridge since the NES days (but I won't go into detail because we're not allowed to talk about that kind of thing on the forums and it's not the subject of the thread).
