Super Tux Kart is a 3D kart racing game based on TuxKart with funny characters.

New look!

Here is a try at a new look for STK's website, based on mediawiki, and a lot of changes through CSS mostly, hopefully it will be good enough. There some boxes are supposed to have rounded corners, but it only works with Firefox, Safari and browsers that support it as part of CSS3. Don't worry Internet Explorer users, you aren't missing much, but I trust that if you use IE, you have a good reason to do so. Also, I took a while to fix the page, just for IE 6, which insisted in showing the page differently from what I wanted; my condolences to all website developers that have had to deal with this issue >.<

So, this front page is meant to be the news page; general comments or rants that relate to STK directly or indirectly (for example, typing about AMD/ATI recently being more open with video card drivers would be fine). This should help dissipate the 'is the project dead?' thoughts =]

Another thing: most pages are protected, right now the only unprotected page is the game design ideas page, in the developer's documentation section.

Halloween special

We made a special Halloween add-on for SuperTuxKart. It contains new 3D models for the collectables, a modified track with some Halloween gadgets added, and a new background image. You have to have SuperTuxKart 0.3 (or a more recent SVN version) installed. Then just unpack the Halloween add-on into the STK directory. The package can be found on the download page, and some screenshots are available as well.

Enjoy, and happy Halloween!

0.3 Release

Finally the 0.3 release of SuperTuxKart is ready, which offers a lot of new features. The most important ones:

  • highscore lists
  • fullscreen support
  • a new track: The Island
  • a new character: Hexley
  • a new penalty: a bomb
  • two new Grand Prix (a volcano and an island Grand Prix)
  • using OpenAL to reduce sound effect latency
  • improved user interface
  • improved AI
  • new documentation (including a cover for a DVD case) in English, German, and French (available as separate download)
  • MacOSX support
  • bugfixes

The history of SuperTuxKart summarises the major development stages.

We are looking for people helping us to make this one of the greatest games ever:

  • Artists for new track- and kart-designs
  • Musicians for background music
  • Sound engineers for sound effects
  • Developers to tackle the long todo list (see wiki for details)
  • Packager to create RPMs for different distributions --> Web masters and moderators to maintain and improve the web page and the wiki
  • Testers to test development versions and release candidates
  • Writers to write documentation, man pages, in game help entries, news entries, ...

... and more. We are sure that you can help us, so please contact us on the development list by sending an email to supertuxkart-devel at supertuxkart-devel at lists.sourceforge.net
