MAXR 0.2.8 Release

We're happy to announce MAXR 0.2.8 with many new features and bugfixes.

1. Releases

Distributionnoarch/universalx86ppcx86_64
AmigaOS Amiga OS4 (lha) -- No (not yet) Question maxr-0.2.4 No (not yet)
Mac OSX >= 10.4 (dmg) Yes maxr-0.2.8 -- -- --
Tux Source (tar.gz) Yes maxr-0.2.8
Yes resinstaller-0.8
-- -- --
Windows Windows (exe) -- Yes maxr-0.2.8 -- No (not yet)

Your download isn't on this list? Check downloads. If it is not there you may help us and create the missing package!

Manual:

      Package manual.pdf
      Search Frequently Asked Questions
      Tux Windows Installation (may be aged - see INSTALL instead)
      Tux Windows Building (may be aged - see BUILDING instead)

Important:

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.

Info:

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

Anyone up for testing http://beko.maxr.org/maxr_0.2.8-1_amd64.deb on a deb based 64bit linux distro? Not sure how this package stuff works to I don't want to put it up on the downloads page (yet).

Edit: Worked nice on my Mint 13 Maya (Mate) 64bit
