Due many changes we recommand a fresh install of MAXR especially when you make use of the resinstaller. Some game resources changed and if you e.g. don't have sound any more you know that you have to rerun resinstaller 0.8.


If maxr fails to start maxr.log is a good place to start. If you're stucked it might be a good idea to take a look at the manual. Please report crashes, bugs, odd behaviors or differences to the original game on the Bugtracker (login with your forum account and your password).

Hint: Drop by on the IRC to find other players. There is no game lobby or some sort of master server. MAXR is a standalone application and you have to find other players the old way. Ask your friends, on the irc or even on the bbs. Remember about timezones when you party.

Make sure to check the manual for hotkeys and ingame commands.

Job offer: You got some free time and want to get involved? Waste precious leisure time without getting money for it? We're still looking for translators, testers, sound artists, packager for various distros and especially an amiga porter! Just report on the bbs or on the irc or send us a mail/postcard Smiling

News: MAXR 200 Turns Anniversary

MAXR 200 Turns Anniversary

Sal decided to lit a candle for the two hundredth crash free turn anniversary. That makes several hours of battling with other opponents over the net without a single crash. The match is still going on but the players decided to take a break to catch some Zs late at night. MAXR is half the way there to knock at the magic 400 turns barrier that usually was about the maximum limit for MAX in it's own days.

Thanks to our real hard gaming debug crew on the IRC looking to bring up any show stopper (be)for the upcoming 0.2.8 release Respect

News: "Staycation" promo

"Staycation" promo - Interplay Games are 50% off on GOG[1] until July 4th

In case you didn't notice yet: GOG[1] is on a "Staycation" promo. If you don't own your legal copy of MAX yet this is your chance to obtain MAX + MAX2 for only 2,99$ uncut (means you get the amazing intro video and some other missing stuff from the abadon version as well that our resinstaller can make use of in MAXR). Oh yeah, we usually don't advertise but this is a unique chance for you to get the original MAX legal and cheap too (if you don't mind the included garbage called MAX2 of course). Thank you Dauss for keeping us posted!

[1] Please notice that GOG is a company that has about zero to do with the MAXR project. If you want to support MAXR you can make use of the Donate button.

With this guide you can set up your own maxr build environment at home and compile the latest svn whenever you want to give it a shot. We're waiting for your feedback and your patches on the bugtracker, of course Wink
