Community testers wanted!

Postby vexed » 25 Jan 2015, 06:06

We are looking for people to tell us their feedback on these builds.

Please test campaign, skirmish, and multiplayer, and tell us your honest opinion on how it compares to 3.1.2.

Thanks!

Yes, you can install these with 3.1.2 on the same system, they use different config directories for windows users, and for linux users, it does NOT share the 3.1 config directory.


Remember, in MP games, people MUST have the same version to be able to play with each other!


You can find the latest build for testing here:
As I write this, the latest is warzone2100-master-20150301-044517-c52c4e6.exe

Windows:
http://buildbot.wz2100.net/files/master/windows/
Linux:
http://buildbot.wz2100.net/files/master/linux/
Mac:
Sorry, not available at this time.

NOTE, moving stuff that isn't a bug to viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12017

The link of a win build has changed.

edit: also, may be you should write a launcher that will compare file's checksums and download only needed/changed files. It'll speed up tests of master version, so everyone would have the latest version to play mp and we would get the stable version faster.

Yes, sorry, didn't know there was going to be another commit to fix campaign stuff.
In that directory for your platform, you will find 1 file.

Everyone just needs to make sure they are using the exact same version (same hash) listed in the filename for MP games.

Sorry about that.

I tested the campaign a few times. Works fine for me. No crashes. There is one bug (maybe two, i am not sure) i found , which i will report. All in all i can say, the changes are good. Especially the intelligent and more aggressive behaviour of the scavs. Well done job. Is this topic the place to discuss the changes?

I've played in single, and had a two crashes. One is for sure- on 1st on fly mission where 1st time you are able to get backup (reinforcements). Game CRASHED when clicking on transporter button to manage units in transport.

Running Debian Jessie 64 and it built just fine. Ran it in single mode, and the only problem I had was that the click-on-select area of vehicles is pretty small. Overall, good job. Ric

BTW, the master zip file offered on github for download refused to compile for me. Maybe this version should replace it? Thanx, Ric

I am not sure...is this a bug or a change? If you give a truck the command to build an oil-resource which is burning, the trucks move to the resource, but they don`t build AFTER the burning. They don`t remember the command. In the past they waited until the fire ends and started to build.

- montetank is right. in first1 gamebuild(when this topic has been started) trunks were waiting for oil to burn-out, but didn't start build oil derrick when its gone. Now(last build feb9) its works like in old 1.10 - trucks just dont want to build if oil burning, don't even wait(not in build queue).

- One more thing. Savegames doesn't work. 1st time I thought its just saves from different gamebuilds but, in feb9-build I saved and load game - and its crashes.(logs attached).

- ok I remember why you get rid off "fire range" units option (in unit options menu). Everyone always set Long range. But why cut units stances options, like HOLD, PURSUE, GUARD. I sometimes uses it, well not "pursue" but "hold" and "guard". I think it should be considered to replace them with something or re-image this stances.
I think "guard" > rename to "stop", and Hold is hold. So it would be like in all RTS.

- FOV problem. I know you aware of it. But I dont know is it related to healthbars shift when units on screen but very close to screen edge. It very annoys cause selecting those units is problematical.

.


Thats funny-i just want to ask whats happend with the"hold position" button ? Its one of the most important at the beginning of the campaign. Making the repair units like a repairfac. waiting at the commandcenter or LZ in the 5th mission. I wish the option back.

Hmm...unsure on this.

The savegame issue is a bug, but the other issue seems intentional. :hmm:
There should be a Hold / Pursue / Guard buttons... as for renaming guard, no, guard means to guard a unit, not stop.
I see the commit why it got changed though... https://github.com/Warzone2100/warzone2 ... f434fcf7b4 is the problem.

We have a stop hotkey IIRC.

Note, updated builds, we now use SDL 2.
It has other changes as well for input, so, if people can, please test and find bugs related to input.
I can't easily test unicode entry on my system.
It also has colored hardware cursors, and other fixes.
Terminator, it also fixes the issue you (at least, I think it was you) that you had with lobby chat.

As I write this, the latest is warzone2100-master-20150301-044517-c52c4e6.exe

Thanks again for testing!

Lobby chat ? dont remember recent submits about it (just one long long time ago, about limited string size). As for SDL btw yesterday I wanted to compile SDL branch and I've failed. Is sdl2 now in main master ?

I think (1) i was affected as well, (2) it was fixed in master a while ago (afair i even bisected and found some unrelated-at-a-glance commit by Cyp and mentioned it in the ticket), though 3.1 is still affected, (3) this latest change doesn't seem to be causing any regressions in that regard.
