    Carball Version 2.6 Released

    We are pleased to announce the release of CarBall 2.6, an original UT2004 mod. CarBall is multiplayer soccer with cars, combining goal scoring with weapon pickups and vehicle power-ups. Imagine Mario Kart mixed with Fifa, multiplied by Wipeout XL. CarBall is unique in changing the game's focus from killing other players to driving, teamwork and fun with physics. The addictive gameplay is simple to learn, but difficult to master. Players must combine scoring prowess with defensive awareness, while mixing in smart team play, use of weapons, and some fancy maneuvers.

    The custom vehicles are capable of not only flipping, jumping and other acrobatics, but also of using various power-ups to score, escape or blow your competitors away. Chaos and unpredictability are common in CarBall games, even ones with skilled team work and communication from both sides. Far more than other games, CarBall will make you laugh as much as it will make you jeer and cheer.

    You can view some of the available media created specifically for this release such as Wallpapers + Screen Shots, Video Clips, and the new Official Carball Trailer here:

    CarBall is a free download that only requires the player to already have the full retail UT2004 installed. It is available from the CarBall website (http://www.carball.net) in the Files section, or from the following link:

    Both new and regular players can look forward to the following features introduced in version 2.6:

    -2 New Vehicles, the Spectre & Bullitt
    -Alt-Fire modes for all powerups
    -New Portable Repulse Field Generator power-up
    -New Carball specific mutators
    -HUD enhancements
    -New skins for car bodies, wheels and license plates, including cell shaded skins
    -4 New Maps including Sonic & Mario themed maps
    -Favorite maps redone especially for this release
    -NEW Comprehensive and illustrated HTML documentation that gives you the lowdown on everything you've ever wanted to know about playing CarBall, running a server, or creating content -- AND MUCH MORE!

    CarBall was a finalist in the Make Something Unreal Contest, but we didn't stop there! The development team continues to push it further with more custom content and improved gameplay to meet the needs of its growing user base.

    I'm new to this whole CB craze, but I've read mucho about it. (Pardon my half-english half-spanishy--thingy, I just got back from Cancun...)
    Any bot support?

      No there is no bot support, and unlikely that there ever will be

      Bots are designed for picking up items, and firing at things, whereas carball involves pushing the ball, and various driving manouevres that the bots just aren't suited to do

      Stick with online/lan, it's the best way to play

        SuperSonic? Are you the same SuperSonic from UnrealInsanity?
        And I pretty much knew that there would be no bot support before I even knew, somehow... I guess that's just the way I am...
        Still, CB looks awesome

                That will never happen in this forum, especially not with that grammar. And that download thing sounds like a personal issue, probably mismatching

                    Was it so bad? English isn't my first language, and I have problem sometimes, when things get complex to explain.

                    Thing asides, you shouldn't be blaming me because my grammar is not perfect. We're not all born with English written in us.

                    And its a mismatch problem, why can I connect everywhere else? They rarely have any players, but I still can get in. I admit I was bored this day and I know you won't change servers simply because a lonely men asks, but does anyone can actually help?

                    Whenever I get in this server, it downloads the map currently in play - if I have the map or not - and it downloads forever. I'm only seeking help to this problem. I love Carball and I miss these old match I did a long time ago.
