New: SuperTuxKart 0.6.2 has been ported to FreeBSD

SuperTuxKart is a Free 3d kart racing game; we want to make the game fun more than we want to make it realistic. You can play with up to 4 friends on one PC, racing against each other or just try to beat the computer. (a network multiplayer feature is under development)

See the great lighthouse or drive through the sand and visit the pyramids. Race under water or in space, watching the stars passing by. Have some rest under the palms on the beach (watching the other karts overtaking you :) ). But don't fall into lava pits! Watch for bowling balls, plungers, bubble gum and cakes thrown by opponents.

You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix, try to beat the high score in time trials on your own, play battle mode against your friends, and more!



Features

* Over 20 tracks and battle arenas
* Multiplayer support
* Many game modes
o Grand Prix
o Single Race
o Time Trial
o Follow-the-leader
o 3-Strikes Battles
* Funny characters
* Runs on FreeBSD 7.2 and higher

Have fun with SuperTuxKart

Is this related to (or will it replace) games/tuxkart? In other words: will it be in the ports tree at any time? We kind of encourage FreeBSD users only to install 3rd party software from the ports tree, and not just run tarballs from the net that don't adhere to FreeBSD's file hierarchy (hier(7))

I hope so :)

No, this is a German fanpage. An English translation is planned ;)

Deutsch & English are close enough, just remember that "Arm" auf Deutsch means "arm" in English & you'll ohne Problem have.

Reiterating what I said in post #2:

We encourage FreeBSD users only to install 3rd party software from the ports tree, and not just run tarballs from the net.

If you have a new version avilable, why not update the port so people can install it the proper way instead of saddling people with some tarball? There is a port, please maintain and update it properly, or get the maintainer to do so for you.

That are test versions and for the Ports Collection unsuitable ;)

SuperTuxKart 0.7 alpha 2 for FreeBSD released

Hi all,

we have just released a 2nd alpha release of SuperTuxKart 0.7. This version has a lot of improvements and bug fixes, more tracks, some new icons and animations. It is still pretty much work in progress, and we would love to get some feedback - e.g. does it work for you, performance, do you like the new icon style or prefer the old one, bug reports etc. Note that due to the missing tracks GPs and challenges will not work, and you will get a lot of warnings/error messages printed - so please don't report issues related to challenges or GP not working ;)

We would also hope that people could help us to port more tracks - it's not that much work, and would help us to get SuperTuxKart back to where it was, especially getting the challenges and GPs back. Also more icons would be nice - and of course always more tracks.

Download: supertuxkart-0.7alpha2-freebsd.tar.bz2

Enjoy!

And SuperTuxKart 0.6.2a for NetBSD has been published :)

Download: supertuxkart-0.6.2a-netbsd-5.0.2-i386.tar.bz2

And a new cover is available:

You could create a -devel port. There are plenty of those.

Hi,

we have just uploaded a second release candidate. Major changes:

* Asian fonts are now included in the package.
* Several memory leaks have been fixed (which had caused problems with music and sound effects)
* Some tracks were improved to disable unintentional shortcuts and incorrect rescues.
* Some minor bug fixes.

Download: supertuxkart-0.7rc2-freebsd-i386.tar.bz2

It's a binary with librarys. With ./run_game.sh you can start STK.

We also updated the translations, but not all translations are complete yet. We encourage all translators to complete their translations, as the strings are now frozen.

STK 0.6.2a is on the cover of the Amiga Future 88 and a review is in the magazin:
