If you’re one of those people that doesn’t spend all day checking IRC for the absolute latest updates, here’s a bit of a catch-up post for the holidays. Unfortunately, I can’t show much without ruining some special surprises; but nevertheless, here’s what I can show you guys:
Welcome to SRB2.org!
Sonic Robo Blast 2 is a 3D open-source Sonic the Hedgehog fangame built using a modified version of the Doom Legacy port of Doom. SRB2 is closely inspired by the original Sonic games from the Sega Genesis, and attempts to recreate the design in 3D. While SRB2 isn't fully completed, it already features tons of levels, enemies, speed, and quite a lot of the fun that the original Sonic games provided.Download and experience Sonic Robo Blast 2 today!

Well, finally, here we are at…wait, 2.0.7? Yep, nothing truly exciting, but a significant bug was found and needed to be corrected immediately, so we’re releasing a simple hotfix patch. This release contains no new content, but includes the following bug fixes:
- Fixes a major issue with netplay that caused the game to be hypersensitive to denial of service attacks.
- Fixes an issue with lasers in netplay causing consistency failures.
- Fixes a rare crash when using F12 in Capture the Flag mode.
- Low framerate should no longer cause screenshots to be taken improperly.
Head on over to the download page to get a copy of the patch.
It’s been a few months since we updated, so I guess it’s about time we came back with another reminder that yes, we are indeed still working on 2.1, despite all reports to the contrary. As always, click on the images for a higher resolution shot, and everything here is subject to change by release time.
Since last month’s update didn’t have enough space for post everything we wanted to show off, here’s a bunch more 2.1 screenshots. As with all previous updates, everything here is subject to change before release.
Rumors of the project’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Despite the lack of news, we have been making slow but steady progress on SRB2 over the last year. As with the previous updates, click on the screenshots for a higher resolution version.
It’s been a while since we posted any information about 2.1′s progress on the front page, so here’s some random tidbits from the development team:
Srb2.org will be down at February 25, 2012, at 6am CST and will be hopefully back up by 6pm the same day.
The data center the SRB2.org server sits at will have 8 hour downtime on February 25, 2012, at 6pm CST
Oh, and someone submitted false spam report on SRB2MB and SRB2 Wiki emails on Hotmail, so Hotmail has banned the server from sending email to hotmail, msn, and live users. If you wish to change your account to a different email, you can, I’ll be watching the mailbox of the MB and Wiki, and forward emails messages from a non-blocked account.
Well, this is Alam, your srb2.org server administrator, I am sorry but on Tuesday the 10th of January, the server’s hard drive started to fail. So I had to replace it and reload everything from the weekly backup, so we may had lost some MB posts, Wiki changes and a few other things (including the “Police Public Call Box” we had on hand).
