Subject: Thanks for the game!
Hey,

Just bumped upon your site to find out that the greatest strategy ever made is being "reloaded', for which i like to thank you guys very much.
About ten of us who played the game back in the days are very excited that our "impossible dream" that one day someone would make M.A.X. multiplayer work is indeed becoming a reality!
We have not come to the point where the old M.A.X. crashed in multiplayer, but this is looking very beautiful.
I for one plan to do a small donation soon and I hope I can be of some assistance working with the bugtracker, I'm sure some of my friends will follow...

Some quick questions;

Is it possible to play the game with more than 4 players now?
Do roads actually give the 1/2 movementpoint bonus, someone claimed it didn't?
Are the aliens allready implemented in a svn version of the game?
Where can I find which features are allready implemented and which aren't ?
I saw in the forums that cooperative play would be possible, if it is how can we enable this?

Keep up the good work, and a million thanks, it's the best christmas gift EVER!

Actually 8 players are possible. That's however only limited by the player textures and can (more or less) easily been increased.

They do. If not fill a bug report.

> Are the aliens allready implemented in a svn version of the game?

Nope not yet but some other things.

> Where can I find which features are allready implemented and which aren't ?

Check the roadmap on the bugtracker. That gives you a good idea. We're going to have a full featured multiplayer capable max ready with 0.3.0. As from now on there are only cosmetics left. With latest svn you even get biospheres. That does not include AI.

> I saw in the forums that cooperative play would be possible, if it is how can we enable this?

That's sheduled after 0.3.0 since it's not an original feature.

We hope you enjoy it and yes, please donate and report bugs Smiling

I might start a game tonight with more than 4 players, could you eleborate a little further on how to actually do this, can't seem to find any information on textures in the english forums.

Hi,
you can play with up to 8 players without having to do something special. Just open a game and let the others join.

Beko meant that the developers need to change something in the code and the available player textures (i.e. the colors of the players), if maxr should support more than 8 players in the future.

Hey guys, just found this site as well, and I will definitely be donating when I get some cash! Loved playing the game back in the days, and it would be awesome to share it with my friends.
