Post Post subject: Carball Version 2.6 Released
The Carball Dev Team is pleased to announce the release of Version 2.6.

Version 2.6 of Carball has been in development for over a year now, and as such is by far the most complete version of Carball ever to be released. Due to the many changes that were included in this release, it went through our longest ever beta testing period, a full five months. We would like to thank everyone who helped beta test 2.6, your time and feedback are greatly appreciated.

Please note that v2.6 has Carball specific binds for selecting the Next and Previous power-ups which can be bound through the standard control configuration screen. The Alt-Fire bind now activates the alternate fire mode for any pickup you have selected unless you are playing on a server without Alt-Fire enabled.

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:

Make no mistake, with this release we have not only focused on new additions to Carball, but on making the mod more robust by including more fixes than ever before. As 2.6 is most likely our final release for UT2K4, we would like to especially thank everyone who has been involved in the progression and furtherance of Carball since its inception and thank in advance those of you who will continue to support us into the future.
