Hi everyone! We’re excited to announce that OpenMBU 1.17 has been released!

This update is our biggest one yet, bringing new features, content, bug fixes, and general improvements.

Some key highlights include the option to set your gamertag, support for custom levels (which automatically transfer over the network to players who don’t have them), and support for standard 3D file formats. This means you can create maps in 3D modeling software and play them in OpenMBU.

We’ve also revamped and added cut levels from Marble Blast Ultra, such as Skate Park Square, Gravity Tower, and Battle Tetra. The original version of Marble City (from MBU’s launch) is also back, along with Polysoup from the MBU XNA demo that was showcased at Microsoft’s 2006 GameFest conference.

In addition, we’ve introduced multiple physics modes, one of which is MBUSlopes that combines the physics from MBU and the XNA demo for easily rolling up steep slopes, enhancing gameplay on levels like Polysoup.

New controller options have been added to allow users to customize deadzones, camera speed, camera acceleration, and the ability to disable auto camera-centering. There are also two new options to simulate a modded controller and keyboard input.

We’ve made several bug fixes and improvements, with a major one being the multiplayer early-start bug that’s frustrated players since the Xbox 360 version — it’s finally been resolved.

A lot of dedication, passion, and hard work went into this update, and everyone on the OpenMBU team was involved. I want to thank the developers, contributors, and my friends who helped with designing and playtesting the updates. I also want to thank the previous owners of https://marbleblastultra.com for allowing us to use the domain and create a new site dedicated to the Marble Blast franchise and OpenMBU

We also have a Twitter account now, which you can follow at http://twitter.com/OpenMBU.
