Greetings to this Community! Updates to the post are in bold.
STOP II will be getting a small update this week or the next. This update will primarily focus on reverting physics (by choice) and it will also correct some visual bugs. For the important change-logs, look at the spoiler.
+ Adding 3 new stages (Bunnies in a Pink Landscape, Crooked Hill, Futuristic Highway), by Thornpath, Beta7X26, and User.
+ Adding Marble Blast[er]/Gold physics back into Marble Blast STOP II, which may be selected by choice with the installer, and the new physics may be selected if you choose to modify your game contents with the installer. More information on this forum post and the Discord.
+ Adding new Teapot colors.
+ Adding a Save Data Verification System (It exists as a support area where you can submit a ticket to restore your saved data if it's lost after installing an update with our new installer..
+ This update will also emphasize how you may unlock stages with the B button if you have enough Pentagons to hopefully clear confusion on how to unlock more stages without having to play them first.
~ Button sounds play correctly now
~ Beginner stages and D.L.C Stages on initial first completion award .25% more Pentagons so you can skip more stages to get to the later packs. If you still want awards, you should still play every official stage you can.
~ A few later official stages are now more speed-run friendly as they were in Update 1.3uX
~ Fixed an issue where D.L.C and Tutorial stages award incorrect Pentagon values on completion
~ Minor Text Fixes
~ Resolved the "Stage 0" bug
- By request: Nockess' stages moved to D.L.C's Director's Cut so they become playable immediately. The three new stages by our contributors replace Nockess' stages.
- Removed more old (and unused) objects from the hybrid
- Removed an extra Pentagon in Canonical Records
- Removed X1101Ball64.ou2
BLUE NOTE: Nockess' stages may be moved to the D.L.C section under the Directors Cut and replaced with some new and fun ones, but this still needs confirmation. Nockess prefers them to be played immediately rather than later, and we give *him permission to upload stages that were created by *him to PlatinumQuest. You can view *his recent stage on the Forums (the preview looks really good).
PURPLE NOTE: It was either we were going to re-name this modification to NOT have anything to do with "Marble Blast" to make it seem like a strange hybrid of the game that's entirely different to not confuse the new physics, or we were going to allow users of this community to switch back to the old ones so if they wish upon installing or modifying the game with the installer.
After an 11 to 3 general Discord vote, we will be offering players with an option to play with the old physics, but they will still get their modern patch for interior collision properties. Don't worry, the physics will remain exactly the same, it's just hacky-stuff with interiors that has changed. If you still decide to play with the new physics, you'll get a bonus award in-game, and your Pentagon count on Discord will increase if you prove to be playing with the new physics consistently. Users will be able to choose between the old and new physics to appeal to this community and all other communities outside of this small marble hub.
GREEN NOTE: Thanks to MindsEye's creative installer, the installer will pull from a source which will update your game contents accordingly. This new installer will thankfully keep your save data intact unless you wish to destroy it yourself and start fresh. However, we know there are technical issues in the world, and we know this is very hacky technology, so if you happen to lose data you otherwise did not want to lose, and you have proof of your progress, you can submit a ticket to Tekannabrand Feed on Discord or to Tekannabrand's e-mail address and we will resolve the problem for you, restoring your data to a condition that is "suitable" of your old progress.
For a complete #to-do list, check out our Discord. You'll need to install the game to see it or ask someone for an invitation.
LAST POST For those who got this far into reading, this is my last (new) post on the Forum, not including Time Capsule updates. We will have communications still open for this marble blast hybrid on Discord and we also have our Wikia. In due time, we may have more places for general communication. I will be using my account to update the downloads page and to participate in time capsules, but honestly it's time I left this place. I doubt I'll be missed but it was fun being here for a few years.Maybe I'm wrong after hearing what I've heard lately. Thanks everyone for all the good and bad memories.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you've put into MB STOP and STOP II over the years. It's super impressive that you've managed to release two mods during the time in which only a handful of others were completed, and I hope the criticism you've gotten hasn't stopped you from creating what you enjoy. Best of luck on your future projects, wherever you may announce them.
