Note, if you wish to compile it yourself directly from our repo:
- Code: Select all
git fetch origin --tags
git checkout 3.1.3
(that means, use something like this to make faster builds.)
- Code: Select all
./configure --disable-debug CFLAGS="-O2 -gstabs -g -g3" CXXFLAGS="-O2 -gstabs -g -g3"
Now, you may have been wondering why is it taking so long for making releases.
We are a very small team of volunteers, that have actual jobs, and unfortunately, time is short for all of these days, so we have to use our time as best we can, and the majority of that has been working on the next version of Warzone that will be released after the 3.x version.
This project has no paid members, and all donations go directly to our web hosting provider that supports these forums, our lobby server, our bug tracker, and also the addons site.
Special thanks to forum member kaikiai for making the mac builds!
We also would like to thank Berg & Terminator & montetank... for testing out the testing builds, and reporting issues they found!
We also would like to thank all the donors who have donated to the site's operating costs, without which, we wouldn't be here, and all the contributors who have helped make Warzone a better game with improved textures, models, mods and maps.
If you would like to make a donation to help with the ongoing server cost, (the only thing we use the funds on) please visit http://donations.wz2100.net
We are still looking for volunteers, be it helping with the Campaign conversions forum post and ticket #4234, or fixing bugs or if web design is your thing, or, helping out the AR team upgrade the graphics to the units, or if you want to help write some new campaigns, forum member Goth Zagog-Thou is working on that front, feel like testing things, then forum member crab's Warzone guide Database could use some heavy testing before that goes final, and if none of that interests you, I am sure you can find something creative for you to do.
We would again like to thank all the volunteers that try to make Warzone the best RTS it can be, and never forget, Strategy by Design!
Don't forget, if you play the campaign, we strongly encourage you do download the videos as well!
They tell more about the story, and have more information about some campaigns.
Get the campaign videos from here Campaign Videos
Please report all bugs to http://developer.wz2100.net/newticket, NOT ON THE FORUMS!
With that out of the way...
What is new in the 3.1.3 release?
Features & Changes:
- Config Dir - the config directory is now named after the version number and located inside the main 3.1 directory.
On Linux, for example, look in .warzone2100-3.1/3.1.3/
- Rank is no longer displayed.
We plan on revisiting this when the lobby supports registered players.
- Custom Backdrops - Custom backdrops and credit screens are now supported.
Backdrops are chosen randomly from files in the base/texpages/bdrops/ folder. File names start with 'backdrop' or 'credit' depending on their intended role. (backdrop*.png, credit*.png ). Image format is PNG.
- In Multiplayer, PING times are now only displayed to the host
- We have stomped a bunch of bugs and fixed some crashers.
- A number of problems were found and fixed thanks to static analysis tools
