Sweet! Glad this is released now.

Small note: the download button's alt text is for Beret, rather than SuperTux

Fixed, thanks for the heads-up

It has to otherwise I'd have disabled it. There is no option in the app to disable. If we use PAL's internal method of hiding it, the app won't run. We *always* hide command windows when we can.

small fix: change SuperTux Portable 0.7.6 to 0.3.3b.
Thanks again!

The base app is buggy and does not support full screen play at present with certain graphics cards (at least Nvidia I know of) on certain OSes. Workaround = don't use fullscreen.

i use win7 64 bit and my graphic card is a AMD HD 6770, ok i try it again with out full screen, but i think it does not change no resolution image, it was yesterday so

update now: i only can play with 640x480 with full screen not other grafic rosultion, but it look good, scaling 125 % in the game, it looks good now

but every time I need to adjust the scaling

can not imagine that such a low resolution looks so good (possibly used the game a higher resolution)

why do you add the "Development snapshot"?

The development snapshot is an unstable version of SuperTux, meant as a technology preview and for people who are not afraid to write bug reports.

and not the stable milestone 1

This is the stable version of SuperTux, also called Milestone 1. It provides a polished gaming experience and is the overall recommended version

i have found this portable super tux 0.1.3.

Neither version is completely stable regardless of the 'stable' label. SuperTux is abandoned with no further development. The 0.3.3b version worked better in most testing. There's just an issue with doing full screen.

If you look at the source changes page at ( you'll find that it's still being actively developed, they just haven't had a release in 3+ years, also if you look at their release history, you'll find that the previous release was about 3 years before that, so their releases may come slow, but I don't think it's fair to say that development has stopped.
