SuperTuxKart 0.6.1 released

SuperTuxKart version 0.6.1. fixes some minor bugs of the 0.6 release, adds a new kart, a new battle map, and better support for add-on packages. We also release a first add-on package, which contains 7 additional karts and 6 tracks. Some of the tracks and karts in this package are new, some are models that were removed from the main distribution. Note: you need SuperTuxKart 0.6.1 to use the add-on package. Both can be found on our download page.
More extensive changelog is below.

SuperTuxKart 0.6.1 (February 2009)
  • Added new kart ("Puffy"), new battle map ("Cave"), and new music for Snow Mountain.
  • Fixed bug in track selection screen that could cause a crash when track groups were used.
  • Fixed crash in character selection that could happen if an old user config file existed.
  • Fixed incorrect rescues in Fort Magma.
  • Improved track selection screen to not display empty track groups.
  • A plunger in the face is now removed when restarting.
  • Added slow-down for karts driving backwards.
  • Somewhat reduced 'shaking' of AI driven karts.


  1. It would be helpful if the addon package had some instructions how to even use it...

  2. Hi, as far as I know you just have to go to the installation folder and extract the files. Possibly you might have to go into the 'data' folder of STK as well, but I think extracting inside e.g."C:/Program Files/SuperTuxKart" should be possible.

    Just ask if you need any more help.

  3. @Arthur: If you could add instructions to STK's native Linux it would be nice.

  4. It's all on the wiki. Besides, nowadays we have this nifty in-game add-on installer. ;)
