MAXR 0.2.9 Release

We're happy to announce MAXR 0.2.9 with many new features and bugfixes. The Changelog speaks for itself:

1. Releases

Search Frequently Asked Questions


Due many changes we recommend 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 0.2.9.


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 behaivors or differences to the original game on the Bugtracker.
Hint: Drop by on the Discord 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 Discord 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 Discord or send us a mail/postcard Smiling

Another big change since 0.2.8 — we moved from svn to git — fixed all tickets in a blink of an eye, unfortunately we have plenty of issues now Sad

BTW: hurry up, I'm back for more hunting in a wee bit — 3 weeks to go Smiling
