3. Graphic quality control:
We made a few adjustments to graphic quality control, which will help better support different computer configurations.

4. Miscellaneous:
– Joystick support
– Some game rules have been changed.
– Music added.
– Info cat will give tips on how to fly and game rules.
– Packed game got smaller.

Altitude0: First Update to Beta TestingWe have first update ready since Altitude0 beta testing started.

Here is a list of what the update includes:

1. Controls:
We implemented simple (standard) controls other than the professional ones. It should be easier for most players to play Altitude0.

2. Controllers:
Different controllers are supported: keys, 360 controller, RumblePad 2 and other generic game pads

3. A quick track was added. You can start racing easier before you can advance to the longer tracks. Now each track has different difficulty level.

4. Graphic quality control:
Graphic quality control will help better support different computer configurations.

5 Benchmark feature:
Try out simple but useful benchmark tool in the Altitude0 Launcher under Settings menu. It will help you quickly find out how well your computer can handle Altitude0.

6. Miscellaneous fixes:
Some game rules have been changed and plane adjustments were made.

If you haven’t created an online account, please do so. That way your replays are going to be automatically shared with others.

There are some small fixes which still need to be done, but this version should be quite playable. More features will be added before the game goes to open beta. As more updates are available, we will let you know.
If you have some problems or questions about the game, please let us know via our facebook (http://www.facebook.com/altitude0) or email (info@altitude0.com).

Thank you for trying A0 and helping us improve it.

Join the Closed Beta

Altitude0: Join the Closed BetaHello,

We’d like to finally announce a closed beta testing of Altitude0: Lower & Faster.

Altitude0 is an upcoming arcade plane racing game for Windows PC, flying close to the ground between gates as fast as you can.

There are just a few requirements to participate in the testing:

  • Altitude0 is an online plane racing game therefore we will ask you to create an online account and share results with other players online.
  • You should be able to speak some English to let us know about problems regarding the game you may discover. If you can read this then you qualify 🙂
  • Your computer should have decent graphics card (NVidia or AMD). Currently graphics cannot be cut down much for lower end machines, will be fixed in the future.
  • You don’t mind reporting bugs & once in a while random game crash (super frustrating to us)
  • You like racing games (planes, cars, carts, we like them all).

The main goal of Altitude0 first beta version is to achieve best possible times on different tracks and share results online with other players. Each race result is recorded and replay is shared with other players online.

Game will show best player results of each week and also best ever charts.

Altitude0 Rankings and Records

Closed beta version should be ready by 22nd of November (Thanksgiving Day for our US friends). The reason we are announcing it in advance is that honestly we don’t know how many people are willing to participate in the testing and how our servers will handle all the data. So in the beginning, we will start with a limited number of players and gradually open the game to more players if everything goes OK.

If you want to be the first to play Altitude0: Lower & Faster, please join the beta program: the sooner, the better. Join beta program at our website http://www.altitude0.com

If you have something to talk about the game or comment, currently you can visit our facebook site (http://www.facebook.com/altitude0) and post a message.
Or send us a direct email (info@altitude0.com).

We also welcome and accept your top-notch ideas & suggestions to make the game better.

Thanks for reading this far.  🙂
