Marble Blast STOP II - Version 1.2 Info was created by Isoplere
WARNING: Please uninstall/remove all STOP II related files or corruption could happen before installing, and please be advised before downloading the new version of this modification. For Windows users, make sure to read the WELCOME.TXT file for information on your current game settings.
Marble Blast STOP II has received an update with some tiny bug fixes and graphics changes. While this update is merely small, it fixes some problems and also introduces new textures and sound files. Thanks to whirligig and (Nockess) for your efforts.

When leaving comments and suggestions, include some positive comments as well.
We as developers appreciate a share of positives and suggestions that could make the game better, rather than not making any positive comments at all.
This motivates us as developers to continue further updates and research more into how we can make this project even better.
Some notable changes we'd like to mention (more in forum and change log)

Important: We've lied! Now this is likely the last version for macOS that will be produced, unless more interesting problems arise in the client. Because Apple is ending support for 32-bit ran programs (and yes, Marble Blast games are included, unfortunately), there's no need to make really big updates soon for macOS applications.

+ NEW proper & revamped dialog for confirmation via re-map of an existing key/button.
+ Increased disclaimer files for the client.
+ More hint dialogs have been created in stages.
+ "Black Ice", a stage from Version 1.0, has been added to STOP II 1.2, and is now recognized as an official stage in-game!

~ Many sound files have been changed.
~ More textures overhauled, especially with hazards.
~ Environmental mapping has been altered and fixed.
~ Coding issues have been fixed.
~ A missing file on Advanced Stage 29 has been corrected.
~ "Can't Jump!", previously Advanced Stage 30, is now Expert Stage 2. ("Black Ice" replaces Can't Jump!).

- Removed Expert Level 2 "Marble Pachinko" from the game.
- Removed some textures.
- Removed Marble X42-B17_0000.
Thank you especially to:
- whirligig (code!) (for sticking through this project!)
- eBlu (new textures and environment suggestions!)
- Nockess (sound help and level environment [next update!])
- Thornpath (love and support!)
And everyone else on the STOP II Team!

I'd also like to thank my friends (Looking at you, Beta7X26 and Nockess), and family for motivation to release this project.
You're all the best!

I'm locked out of the Advanced stages. Is it just me, or is it a bug? I completed all of the Intermediate stages, but can't access the first Advanced stage.

If there's a bug, YO! I'll report it!

- Removed Expert Level 2 "Marble Pachinko" from the game.
...
- Removed Marble X42-B17_0000.

I must admit I have not played the game well enough to play that level or use that marble. Why would they get axed?

Because Marble Pachinko is a shitty level.

Steven, thanks for your report. We'll look at this.

Mike is correct. It's a level meant for a DLC packet

You might also want to make sure we won't be locked out of the Expert levels as well.
