STOP II 1.4u1o1 - Released October 22, 2021 was created by Isoplere(Jiquor)
Watch the trailer! Marble Blast STOP II 1.4u0 - Trailer

We're now working hard (as of today) to get it on more places, and to get it updated here better than ever before.


This update patches some bugs and adds two new features and some seasonal marbles earlier than expected. We’re excited to release this update - it fixes some critical issues. You may want to launch the WiseUpdate wizard from 1.4u1 if you're already playing, but otherwise you can download it now if you haven't played it yet or want to start completely fresh.

Welcome to Marble Blast STOP II (Version 1.4u1o1)! As the leader of the STOP II Team, we've spent countless hours, some without sleep, developing the final major release of Marble Blast STOP II, which is arguably the best version of this modification. Filled with new features, updated graphics, fixed engine plugins and exclusive physics (by choice), this modification is sure to leave you feeling nostalgic, skilled, and determined. Are you ready to help Captain S. Marble recover his lost Teapots, and can you help him and his friends return to Palladium Village?

STORY: Captain S. (Stop) Marble was spending time in Palladium Village, Marble Planet one day. All of a sudden, our Captain lost his entire Teapot collection to an unseen, evil force. Some speculate it's Marblaxia, some speculate it's CyberFox, and some speculate it's a cosmic, evil version of clockwork himself. As he's trapped and launched into thin air with many other citizens and his friends, he must recover all of his lost Teapots and rescue citizens and friends to make it back home safely. Can you help Captain S. Marble complete every challenge and collect every missing Teapot in order to help him open a portal back to his home in Palladium Village? Get from a GO Pad, collecting every lost Teapot along the way hitting YieldPoints and stopping Captain S. Marble on the STOP Pad to unlock brand new areas. Are you ready for the grand Marble Blast tale of a lifetime?

So much more has changed than just all this... Play for yourself to see some of the amazing changes that lasted MORE THAN A YEAR in development and testing.


We hope you enjoy your time playing this new update and I am personally super happy you have chosen to stick alongside our journey for a very long time. In the last few months, our modification hit a total of 750 downloads, and we're always looking for more people to try this out. Thanks for all the support. In the future, we’re hoping to turn our server into a Discord server specifically for a new hub "The Marble Blast modification zone" where staff members and users can help point people in the right direction if they want to learn how to modify a Marble Blast game properly, create and help with other mods, and give friendly and constructive support to folks along the way seeking to create their own modifications and stages for this wonderful franchise, a gem of the indie gaming world.

Happy marbling!

As for the update if you already have STOP II 1.4u0 or 1.4u1:
1. They go to Start > STOP II 1.4u1 > Check for STOP II Updates
2. Click Next, and Next again once it says the update is ready for download.
3. The update downloads, though the progress bar won't update, so you're going to have to wait until the finish page appears.
4. On the latter page, click Finish, the installer for the new version will start, and you'll be greeted again with the physics selection.
5. The installer will go into maintenance mode, so they click Repair and Next, the game will be "updated".
7. After the Repair is done, the STOP II 1.4u1 shortcut on the Desktop, as well as the Start menu folder for it is still there. Remove all this, and leave only the 1.4u1o1 ones.

HOW TO TRANSPORT SAVE DATA FROM 1.4u0-1.4u1:
1. You can use the Save Tool in the start menu to transport save data to another version. If you don't use it correctly and/or lose your save data, we can't be held responsible but we can try to restore it for you if you submit proof to Tekannabrand's e-mail address.
2. OR you can go into STOP II 1.4u0/marble/client and merge all contents that are not a folder from 1.4u0-1.4u1 to STOP II 1.4u1o1/marble/client. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING OR YOUR GAME WILL BREAK & YOU WILL HAVE TO DELETE ALL STOP II CONTENTS, REINSTALL, AND SUBMIT A SAVE DATA RECOVERY TICKET TO TEKANNABRAND!!!

We're making a hotfix for 1.4u1o1 - MindsEye reports that if you don't run STOP II as "administrator", your save data will appear somewhere else due to the new save tool that was implemented. If you normally run STOP II w/o running as admin your save data would end up in a different location. Just know this if you're going to run the save tool before you install 1.4u1o1

Unfortunately I haven't gotten to playing this yet, but I want to eventually.
Final major release . . . do you have plans for another mod, or another game entirely, after STOP II?

I don't think so man especially with the fact PQ got an update yesterday. I have to move on from this place among many other things and I keep coming back for some strange reason that even I don't have the explanation for. Unless STOP II becomes an on-line port, I don't think there's going to be anything new like I thought before. But thanks for tuning in for all these years and for your feedback all these years.

The STOP II Wiki will still be updated but I have to move onto new concepts and new ideas from scratch
