Launching SRB2 with ArchPack

Firstly, the file scmrtf_archpack.wad must be in SRB2 directory or any directory within the SRB2 directory, and then, start up SRB2 with ArchPack by one of the following ways:

  • Manual loading: start up SRB2, open the console (press ~ on US keyboards or ` on UK keyboards), type ADDFILE scmrtf_archpack.wad and hit Enter. The level pack will be loaded.

  • Batch launcher: use one of the provided batch files to start up vanilla SRB2 (OpenGL or not) with ArchPack.

  • SRB2 Launcher: download the launcher here http://mb.srb2.org/showthread.php?t=38415, and install it in SRB2 directory. Add ArchPack in "Add Files" tab and click on "Start Game".

Once the ArchPack is loaded, use the game menu to start or host a new game.

Savegame, Statistics, Time Attack and Secrets

This level pack records savegames, statistics (gamedata), emeralds and emblems collected and time attacks which are accessible through game menu, option "1 Player".

NOTICE: Time attacks from older versions of ArchPack are incompatible with this version.

The single player maps have 9 special stages tokens in total. Each special stage token will allow you to enter a special stage that, if beaten, will award you with a Chaos Emerald.

This level pack features two unlockables:

  1. Vanilla Maps: Clear game at least once. After the credits, it gives you access to vanilla SRB2 maps.

  2. Soccer field: Collect 15 emblems and beat the game in 8 minutes. It gives you access to a map that is a soccer field with a ball. This map has no other purpose than a casual gameplay or curiosity.

  • SINGLE PLAYER: There's no Exit Goal. To exit the map, use the game menu.
  • MULTIPLAYER: This map is multiplayer compatible for co-op, match and tag. To access it, type MAP MAPME in the console. If you host a server with this map, make sure to host it on Casual Room (see http://ms.srb2.org).
