Website Is Back!

a0_news_newwebsiteWe’re pleased to say that Altitude0 website had a makeover and it’s running again.
We had to revamp Altitude0 website and game server after website was hacked. No game profiles were lost or damaged, backups and redundant data saved the day!
Finally the new system is running and should be stable.

Rankings and track editor page are still getting a makeover and will be ready soon.

Otherwise, we have been working on exciting new features in the past couple of weeks. Currently we are testing the update and it will be ready soon.
Expect upgraded multiplayer with user created competitions and events!
