The beta is a public beta. That means everyone gets to play it, no matter which platform.
If you're on Windows, you can only play other users on Windows and Linux.
If you're on Mac, you can only play other users on Mac. Not Windows or Linux. However you CAN use a Windows emulator, such as CrossOver, WinE and others to play Marble Blast Platinum on. You will find they work fairly okay, but we are not taking any responsibilities for bugs caused by them. After all they're an emulator program.
Challenges and Super Challenges are the exception, it does not matter which platform you are or your opponent is.
1.14 and 1.50 are working on separate databases. 1.14 will continue to function on PhilsEmpire all throughout 1.50's pre-release stages, that means beta and release candidate (the latter if absolutely necessary).
Once 1.50 is considered final, 1.14 Leaderboards will be locked for everyone, and its databased locked as well. That means PhilsEmpire will no longer be used for Marble Blast Platinum.
When you create an account for 1.50 (final version only), the staff will link your times, achievements and other data from 1.14's database to 1.50's. Your work will not be gone.
There is no release date set by the Platinum Team. Do NOT decide yourself or guess. When we're expecting a release within a week, we will announce that. No exceptions. If any setbacks do occur, we will notify the community immediately.
We are aware of the extreme hype we have created throughout the community and yes we thank you all for your patience, but it is annoying to see users decide on dates when none were mentioned. It is also annoying to see users asking for early release in the cost of stability. This is not happening. We have not worked this long just to give users a broken mod.
The Platinum Team does NOT hire new members. We do not need any new members to our staff. We have gotten this far using our own resources and time, we are definitely going all the way through ourselves. Your best way to help us right now is to be patient. When the beta comes out you will have a chance to give us feedback.
If you are going to annoy us all with stupid questions or spam or not-useful-posts then you're going to find yourself getting a 2-days suspension from the forums on the spot, no questions asked.
Thanks for the helpful information. It's disappointing to get hyped over fake dates and such, so I must say shame on those who created them. Also thanks to RDs, it's closer than I thought, he is right!
