One of the best things of working with people like Aayrl is that when he comes with brilliant ideas for Marble Blast Fubar, we can sponge off of him and make our own. It’s even better when we work together with him afterwards so that two mods can benefit from combined knowledge and hours long programming.

The Platinum Team and Aayrl are pleased to announce a new launcher for Marble Blast Platinum and Fubar. While Fubar’s launcher differs to that of Platinum (and I cannot disclose its contents at this point of writing, but if Aayrl wishes to do so he can), it does have some of the basics that Platinum’s has.

Platinum’s launcher will check your MBP directory (if it exists) and compare it to the server. If it passes the check, it will let you launch MBP, otherwise it will automatically connect and update the necessary files. The biggest advantage is that we can roll out fixes on the go without you having to wait for the next major version.

You will need JAVA 7 installed in order to use the launcher. It works on both Windows and Mac.

Thanks,
The Platinum Team and Aayrl

Nice idea, but we also need something to replace the Marble Blast Map Exporter. With this program, coding moving platforms was a LOT faster than now.


That's all we need is another thing to do.

Here's an idea guys, how about some of you guys learn how to program so you can pitch in too! :)

The launchers will work offline - it will simply inform you that a connection could not be established, and if a full version of the game is already detected, it will allow you to play the game.
