SuperTuxKart tests online multiplayer




Opensourcegame SuperTuxKart gets online multiplayer. The developers started with an alpha test of the function and ask people to participate. There are more than twenty servers available, which are hosted by volunteers.

The team behind SuperTuxKart writes that the release of a new version is near. In the past weeks, the multiplayer functionality has already been tested, but now the developers are asking more players to participate. Big bugs should not occur anymore, yet the team still speaks of an alpha test.

The makers say they are looking for people who can compile SuperTuxKart themselves, to find out if there are any bugs. The team has put instructions on GitHub . We are also working on a beta version, or even a release candidate . That version must be ready soon.

Volunteers have put servers online for the multiplayer functionality of SuperTuxKart. Among others in the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Chicago. There are various game modes, such as races, time trial, battle mode, soccer, capture-the-flag and free-for-all. Users can also host servers themselves, a Raspberry Pi 3 is powerful enough for that, according to the creators.

SuperTuxKart is an open source game originally developed for Linux, but later released for Windows, macOS and Android.
