Hey guys, how’s it goin’?
Anywho, the site has been updated quite a bit…The sidebar is now 18.75% more condensed, for starters. I’ve also added the remainder of the SRB2 releases (Final Demo 1.01 and up) to the History Page, although a few releases are still missing. If anyone still happens to have the original installation file for 1.09 or 1.01, don’t be shy, go on the forums and drop me a line, so I can add it to the collection. You’ll get a special mentioning on the front page, too.
They’ve been found! Thanks to Mystic and KaeptnIglo for finding the two missing archives!
So many changes have been made to SRB2 in the past three years (can you believe it’s been that long since the last release?), and since this version is NOT backwards-compatible at all with previous SRB2 versions, I feel it warrants a version upgrade. The game now has a fully completable single player campaign. It isn’t finished, but does look polished.
There are scads of other changes, but to list them would be exhausting. I hope we’ve exceeded most people’s expectations on what SRB2 is capable of – it certainly has mine!
As you may or may not know, over the past year I assembled a team of very talented individuals to work on SRB2 that became known as the “Sky Sanctuary Team”. Their work is very much apparent in this release today.
I have also given the SRB2.Org domain and control of the website to Alam and Logan, while Orospakr runs the code repositories and bug tracking.
I no longer have any critical control over SRB2’s development. With a wife in tow and a baby on the way, I need to start thinking about other priorities in my life. Spazzo will likely handle any news updates and small site maintenance from here on out, with Mystic overseeing day-to-day development operations. Like him or not, with Mystic in control, I am confident that SRB2 can be completed to its original vision and not get mired in the cruft and indecision that plagues so many fan games.
I’d just like to make an announcement that the address used for contacting STJr. has been changed.
If you wish to contact us at Sonic Team Jr., please send e-mails to our new address, firstname.lastname@example.org
More information can be found on the contact page.
Made a few minor updates to the site, and removed some of the outdated/unused material. I’m really surprised at how well this site is holding up, given how old it’s starting to get…
The Sky Sanctuary team has also been making some fantastic progress, allowing us to include things in the next version that I could never imagine making it. To release in May I think would be cutting all of their work too short.
So… we’ve decided on a new target – SAGE!
This will give us time to fix more bugs, perfect the multiplayer system, and give some extra polish to the Single Player mission. I know you have to wait a little bit more, but I’m sure it will be worth it.
SAGE begins on July 25th, 2009. You can check out the website -
