SuperTuxKart 0.8.1 Release

Postby hiker » 26 Nov 2013, 01:31

Hi all,

We are very proud to announce release 0.8.1 of SuperTuxKart:

Image

It has taken us a rather long time for a minor release, but most of the developers have been rather busy with mentoring students for the “Google Summer of Code 2013”. On the other hand, we had many contributions from new developers: Dawid Gan tirelessly fixed bugs, making 0.8.1 the minor release with most bug fixes (at least 133). Johannesr1 added shield functionality to bubblegum. Xenux added filtering of add-ons, Glenn De Jonghe saving of a Grand Prix (just abort a Grand Prix at the beginning of a race, later then restart the same Grand Prix, i.e. same number of karts and difficulty again). Funto and Mohammad Al-Ghannam added a multi-player soccer mode, and we also found time to add support for using the Wii Remote to play STK (check our wiki for details).

Totoplus did an awesome trailer for us:

For old players, here a list of most important changes:
    * New track STK Enterprise
    * Updated tracks “The old mines”, “Lighthouse”, “Zen Garden”
    * New game modes “Soccer”and “Egg Hunt”
    * New karts Xue and Sara
    * Updated Beastie kart
    * Added Tutorial
    * Added new Supertux difficulty
    * Wiimote support
    * New bubblegum shield weapon
    * New speedometer and nitro meter
    * Add ability to filter addons
    * Updated nitro models
    * Added ability to save and resume Grand Prix
    * Improved skid marks and nitro effects
You can download the latest version as always from sourceforge.

We hope you all can enjoy 0.8.1!
The SuperTuxKart Team

Edited: XP installer now available.

Congrats everyone! :)
I have created torrents of the installers, which can be found at http://supertuxkart.net/Downloads, but be aware that they will probably be quite slow to download via because I am hosting them at my own home computer. But the more people downloading and seeding them the faster it will get, so if anyone wants to help do that it would be nice. :)
If not, no catastrophe as I wanted to offer it for people with unstable connections (which often doesn't have much download bandwidth usually anyway).

Great new release :D

For the OS X PowerPC users, I can try to build a 0.8.1 binary with xeno's customized Irrlicht build... :)
(Maybe the G4 users can try it with samuncle's low resolution edits, if it works...)

Would a .deb file be possible? I can't seem to compile from source... Here is the error for all who are interested:

I redownloaded it and tried again... same thing. Any ideas?

KRC: You need libbluetooth-dev installed - sorry for not having that in the build instructions.
None of us know how to make a .deb sadly so it is how it is.

What version of libbluetooth is needed? I've just installed libbluetooth-dev on Debian 6.0.8 Squeeze & it is giving error about it:
Code: Select all
/home/zippy/special/Games/other_games/supertuxkart-0.8.1-linux-glibc2.7-i386/bin/supertuxkart: error while loading shared libraries: libbluetooth.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


***EDIT forget this. I got it working. I think i did something wrong with my shortcut, sorry!

Is real multiplayer coming? This is already so much fun to play. But multiplayer is what those games are all about. How cool would it be if others having the game running would be detected if on the same WLAN.

First, please excuse me, I wanted join the team again, to modelling, and you we're there for accepting me and it was cool. I can't I don't think I can motivate myself again, sorry.

My review of 0.8.1 alpha is than it's stable version, better than 0.7 which wasn't a alpha ( Pentium i7, win 7 64, nvidia GTX560ti ).

I want to write few words about soccer mode, I played a game called sarpbc (ps3 only) which is a reference for me ( I searched in vain a game like this on pc ) I found STK ! ( sarpbc 2 is now announced :) ).
But even if gameplay is already correct ( especially in a 1/1 mode ). I think, if team will be bigger, so the physic may change ( ball lighter, bigger stadium, boost should be there too, and maybe a jump ).

I stay tuned to sarpbc 2news , and I hope to STK a good continuation in the way it goes.

See you Later. Cheers

Thanks Rudy, we hope you will be in touch once in a while at least. :)
Regarding soccer mode, yes the physics may not be ideal and we need to test more and figure how we can make it more fun and possibly easier to play. Especially once we have online play, we can have larger teams and will probably need to tweak things. Thanks for your suggestions.

Nice works guys! Luckily, the stable version works on my Win XP SP3 now!

Between, the online multiplayer mode weren't implemented for GSoC or am I wrong? It's a feature that STK needs!

Online multiplayer were started as part of GSoC, but isn't ready for release yet. We'll continue working on that for 0.9.

Thanks a lot for the confirmation - that version was actually causing us a bit of a headache in the end ;)

So is there anyway of getting to a mode like this? http://cl.ly/image/3t3t3h3Y1S2u with a single machine? Is there a roadmap for 0.9? Can't wait for multiplayer...

split-screen has been part of STK for years. Just select multiplayer in the main menu. A roadmap is on our milestones page.
