March 13th, 2011 by Simon in Development

We want to update to 0.7.1 soon, since there were some annoying bugs in 0.7.0. But we are still waiting for these three two one languages to be updated:

Sad Languages

(please translate ‘em!)

Internet Relay Chat!

March 7th, 2011 by Simon in Development, Interesting Stuff

(click the image to go to a web-based IRC client!)

We created a channel on the network in order to provide a platform for chatting. Feel free to log in and chat with other M.A.R.S. users! And maybe, occasionally one of us will be online, too.

So if you have a small problem which is not worth to be posted in the forum, if you want to spread some ideas, or just talk to other free-minded people, join us there! You can use the web-based client (click the image above) or use your own client like X-Chat or Pidgin.

Channel: #marsshooter


New Planets!

March 5th, 2011 by Simon in Funny Stuff, Interesting Stuff

I just created some new planets for M.A.R.S. using Blender and Gimp. Most of them will replace older ones, which don’t fit to the style anymore. It’s not in SVN yet, but they will be in 0.7!

Hope you like them :D


Windows7 and ATI…

March 1st, 2011 by Simon in How To, Interesting Stuff

If you happen to know the following problem, you may want to try the work-around!


(Windows7 users with ATI may be used to this version of M.A.R.S.)

Starting the mars.exe opens up a black command prompt with nothing in it besides a blinking dash. Nothing else happens.

Just created four new ships! Hope you like them :D

Has anybody of you a good idea for a ship naming scheme? The current ship names are… well… not good ;)
As Atto proposed in the forum, there has to be some kind of concept…

Due to the amount of requests for joystick support, we decided implemented it!

(click the image for a larger view!)

Since we haven’t got a device to test it, we borrowed one and implemented joystick support yesterday. We got an XBox 360 controller and everything works really cool. (Actually playing with a game pad is so much fun, that we ordered two from amazon :D )
