We're not importing anything custom made by people.

Note that the marble size has been scaled down to closely match that of Marble Blast Gold's. Sadly MBG's marble spews a size that has 10 decimal places and we don't have a way to match it, so ours is rounded up to the third decimal place.


Maybe you should get the original marble .dts from Marble Blast Gold (original)

No can do, because then we'd have to disable Mid-P/3D Marble again and people always complained they couldn't use them (and they really like them) on the leaderboards.

When either Half-Life 2: Episode 3 is released, or PQ exits my digestive tract.

Advertising outside, I can't wait for this (but I bet like other people I'm more inclined to choose PQ over this).

You said Half-Life 3. I said Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Now we have to wait.

RCT you need to stick around and play MB. That's been in there since Spy coded the old LBs..that feature was one of the few that actually worked.

But recently submerged in my digestive tract. If I don't stop having everything going through my digestive tract, this entire forum is gonna be stuck in there.

I know for a fact that I don't have a title of authority around here, however, I find it disturbing and disgusting that you keep mentioning your digestive tract. This isn't the spam board. Please stop

What is this programmed in? C++ or some other high level programming language?

TorqueScript because c++ is the engine which we do not have access too. All modding including Platinum Quest is done in pure TorqueScript. The only things that isn't torqueScript is the engine and the LB server (obviously)

TorqueScript is a high level scripting language that has similarities to the C programming family, but looks more like PHP and JavaScript when you actually want to compare it to <something>

this is the marble blast engine that uses Torque Test Engine, which was similar to Torque Game Engine 1.3

This isn't the same engine. The ones that were released were Torque3D MIT currently @ Version 3.00 and Torque2D MIT.

It still keeps roughly the same scripting engine, except with more improvements such as the foreach/foreach$ iteration loops as well as the ->/--> operators.

... Different question: In my MBG game, the level Moto-Marblecross info text says Get around track in less than 32 seconds. But then it says Time to Qualify: 00:54.00. And to add to confusion, MBP has the Par time as 32 seconds! Why is mine different? :C

its because MBP is more awesome and wants the game to make sense. To be honest I have no idea, but I guess we could fix it in 1.50.

the par time was 54 but the .mis in mbg shows both time = 32000; and time = 54000; , something you should be able to check yourself. hence i deleted the time = 54000; and hey problem solved, it shows 32.
