PlatinumQuest updates again

Hey all,

The Platinum Team is happy to announce that Buzzmusic has joined the team as a level designer, and will also help with sounds and music. Please give him some warm welcome.

I'd personally like to thank RDs.Empire, Uil and Buzzmusic on joining us and really help develop the best experience for Marble Blast alongside HiGuy, Jeff and myself. This really gives PQ the push it needs and gives us all lots of motivation.

Thanks,
Matan and The Platinum Team

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. I know I haven't been very active on the forums recently, but I've been working hard over the past few months Marble Blast-wise, and I'm really looking forward to working with the team, hopefully you'll get to see some of my work whenever the time of PQ comes :)

Congratulations Uil! I'm sure you'll make a great addition to the team.
I guess we should start to become more demanding about PQ now :P

Congratulations Uil! We sure need to raise our expectation of progress made now that the team has more members. :P

Platinum, now with more Quest

Greetings!

The Platinum Team is proud to announce that the fabled PlatinumQuest in its entirety will be put into a future update of Marble Blast Platinum! This will not delay MBP updates such as MBP 1.52 and future patches to the game. Because PlatinumQuest has a lot of features, it will take some time to port it to Marble Blast Platinum.

We would also like to take this time, to welcome RDs.Empire to The Platinum Team as an official member. RDs.Empire has done contract work before with us, and we really appreciate him taking up the offer. Please take a moment to welcome RDs.Empire to The Platinum Team.

This is an exciting time for the staff and the community! Expect more announcements of PlatinumQuest, and Marble Blast Platinum 1.52 updates in the future!

Until then, keep on rolling!

- The Platinum Team

Congrats to RDs Empire for joining the MBP team!

It's going to be great to be playing new levels with cannons, ice shards, moving gems, and other new features!

Little late reply. But thanks for kind words everyone! :) Over past years I've been jumping here and there between marble blast related projects so hopefully all I've learned over this time will let me improve PQ and bring good experience to everyone.

To conclude, also let us not forget the efforts made by the team so far to bring MBP to the point it is today! Among those who've worked and contributed to the latest era of MBP, remember those who worked to start to mod it, progress it, provide updates for it, and build a community to support this game. Countless contributors have spent their time and efforts to do what many of us thought was impossible to do own our very own.


Also this! I have to seriously appreciate everyone who brough PQ and MBP to this point. All that has been done is amazing and I already have something to work with which is way easier than going through painstaking concept art and countless of scrapped maps just to get gameplay and art style right which these people had to do.

:D Yay! PQ continues!
I'm really happy to hear this. This made my day. Also congrats to RDs for joining the Platinum Team.

Mac OS 10.6 Support Re-Added

As some of you may have noticed, we dropped Mac OS 10.6 support for Marble Blast Platinum 1.51 due to a new extender system which was incompatible. However, thanks to a generous effort by amd42/Derpking (the guy who wrote the extender base system), we have been able to re-add support for those of you who are unable (or unwilling) to update your systems. Mac OS 10.6 users should now see the latest build appear in their launcher and should be able to play online with other Marble Blast Platinum 1.51 players.

Thanks for bearing with us through these updates,
The Platinum Team

HiGuy, prepare for this, you have been warned on future things you don't want to do :^)

Platinum 1.51 and April Fools

Hello all!

After a long time The Platinum Team is proud to announce the next patch to Marble Blast Platinum, version 1.51. This patch contains cumulative updates since 1.50’s release as well as new content. Some highlights include a new extender engine (version 1.2), two new multiplayer game modes (Collection and King of the Hill), better controller support, slight changes to level editor with item placement that makes it easier, and nearly 50 bug fixes. The downside to the new extender version is the removal of Mac OSX 10.6 support, though it might be back in a future patch, but no promises are being made.

In addition to that we also added April Fools. Rather than screwing with the website like we normally do, we decided to modify the game. Slightly. After hours of playtesting we concluded that having it stay for 2 days (March 31st until April 1st) is sufficient enough for everyone to enjoy, and for plenty of videos to be made.

Have an awesome week and happy April Fools,
The Platinum Team

Just go to downloads>MBP and you should find it. Or just click this link marbleblast.com/index.php/downloads/mbp

It still says MBP 1.50 because staff is lazy, but it is 1.51.
