You should be able to install this into your SRB2 folder where 2.2 lives with no problems. Your save files from 2.2.0 will still be valid.
    We’ve been meaning to get it out for a while, but one thing or another always caused a snag in the plans. There are a couple major changes we think people will be happy with (Objects now have shadows, and Fickle’s camera mod have been implemented, for example), but it’s mostly bugfixing. Also, we did neglect to add a name to the credits, so by way of apology, I specifically want to specifically acknowledge QueenDelta in this newspost for having made Dream Hill, a map that she made for 2.1, and was awesome enough for us to include in 2.2. She also made the new chip, enemy, and star assets for that map.
    For right now, all we have is a Windows build for 2.2.1. As with 2.2.0, we will initially have a torrent available and update the page as we go. We’ll be periodically updating the download page and newsposts as builds for other platforms get added or otherwise made available.

    Video with some noteworthy changes:

    Changelog Highlights:
    (Detailed changelog here)


    • Shadows have been added to the game.
    • A slew of camera options originally known as the “ficklecam” mod (Made by fickle) from the forums has now been added to the game.
    • Added the “Simple” play style, which automatically orientates the camera. It may prove easier for players using controllers.
    • OpenGL batch files are included in this package.
    • GIFs may be recorded under OpenGL.
    • The renderer may now be changed while in game.
    • Players now only uncurl from a ball after hitting the ground when using the Elemental Shield’s ability. This means you can break those monitors under the goop in THZ2!
    • Added sixteen angle sprite support.
    • Fixed the Fire Shield being extinguished by lava.
    • Adjusted Tails’ flight to discourage mashing the jump button.
    • Players no longer slide off polyobjects.

    Version 2.2.2 is out!

    We have also released an experimental 64-bit build for this. If you intend on using it, you must delete all existing DLL files from your 2.2.1 folder before extracting this patch.

    We are still working on getting Linux and Mac updates for 2.2.1 as well as this. There will be an announcement when they are made available.

    You can see the full changelog here.

    Version 2.2.3 is out!

    Quote Originally Posted by Rob

    Highlights are:

    * The console can now be used during menus
    * The emblem hints and radar can now be used in Record Attack
    * Continues can now be used infinitely in the vanilla game while using a save file; collecting tokens after obtaining all the emeralds rewards extra lives instead
    * Added new laser effects for the Greenflower Zone 3 boss
    * Many more features and fixes for modding purposes. See the full changelog here.

    Linux users, binaries are available where they usually are. You can find that on the downloads page, they’ll be updated within moments of the post.

    Mac users, we have a stable environment to make Mac builds in, we’re hoping to have a 2.2.3 build ready for you guys soon. Hold tight.

    Windows users, you’ll notice that we don’t have a 64 bit build again. This is deliberate. The 64 bit build does not provide errorlogs, and those are becoming increasingly more important. The more people we have using those instead of 32 bit builds creates issues for getting reliable bug reports. And since there’s no benefit whatsoever to having a 64 bit build since Windows runs 32 bit applications perfectly fine, we’re not going to provide 64 bit builds until we can figure out what’s going on that is preventing errorlogs from being generated. As such, you will need a fresh 2.2.1 install of the 32-bit build to patch 2.2.3 over, the new patch will not work with the resource files that 64 bit builds required.

    Looks like I missed the Version 2.2.4 release - it was released one day after 2.2.3.

    To use this patch, all you need to do is copy the contents of the zip file into your existing 2.2.1, 2.2.2, or 2.2.3 folder and allow Windows to overwrite any files it asks about. Again, we are no longer supporting 64 bit builds. If you have a 64 bit version of SRB2 set up, you absolutely must get a fresh install of 2.2.1 and patch 2.2.4 over the new 2.2.1 install. 2.2.4 will not work if you try to put it in a folder with a 64 bit build.

    Linux users, binary packages should be properly updated where they normally are found on the Downloads page.

    Mac users, I know I said yesterday that we’d have an update for you guys soon, and in fact, we do have a functional 2.2.3 build for Mac and I was gonna make that public tonight, but now we need to get 2.2.4 squared away for you guys. Sorry! We’ll have that ASAP.

    v2.2.5 and a small patch, v2.2.6, is out!

    https://www.srb2.org/2020/07/srb2-ve...patch-release/

    We’ve got some great new features for you, including:

    • Shadows now render on the ceiling in reverse gravity.
    • The game now saves as the level ends. If you exit a special stage and re-enter the game, you will be in the next level.
    • You can now play as any character in NiGHTS mode.
    • You can now use SOC and Lua to make custom skincolors.
    • OpenGL has received an overhaul, resulting in performance improvements and shader support. The game ships with some shaders, but if your machine can’t handle them, you can turn them off.
    • Updated music for the tracks originally sourced from Mystic Realm.
    • We added Marathon Mode. It’s for full game speedruns. Find it under the 1 Player menu. We also included options for Ultimate Mode and for creating a backup to come back to if the game crashes during a live event.
    • Knuckles no longer crouches for as long after landing from a glide, making him lose less momentum and feel a little less chunky. He can swim underwater, too, which controls differently from gliding. We gave him a little something extra, too…

    Play the video to see these features in action!

    See the full changelog here. Enjoy the update!

You will now be able to finish Black Core zone in unmodified single player! (Sorry we missed that.) We’ve also fixed some other small bugs and made some minor adjustments to Marathon Run.
