MP Testing for the next release (3.3.0) needed!

Postby vexed » 14 Jan 2018, 06:21

We have a Campaign thread for testing things out, and it is going great!

Now, we need the same thing done for you MP people.
There have been a TON of things changed, and I know some of you might not like the changes, so, if that is you, PLEASE speak up now before the release is done!

Remember, weapon balance is still a big thing, and if you don't tell us about all the issues, they can't be fixed before the next release.

Keep all feedback about these builds in this thread, and thanks for testing!
Also be sure to tell us what version you are using, like 97a25c1 if you get one of the ones just generated.

Also remember, that ALL people need to have the exact same build. Right now, they are:
warzone2100-master-20180114-024100-97a25c1.exe 14-Jan-2018 02:45 104M (Windows)
warzone2100-master-20180114-024100-97a25c1.tar.xz 14-Jan-2018 02:39 78M (Linux) 14-Jan-2018 03:28 96M (Mac!!)

You can find these and all test builds we do here:

P.S, yes, you can install multiple versions of the game, no need to uninstall. These are all portable builds, self contained, and all information will be written to the install directory ONLY.

Re: MP Testing for the next release (3.3.0) needed!

Postby Darkling » 20 Jan 2018, 04:14

So playing a skirmish game with master version 6e805bd the AI I was testing was able to build 6 sattelite uplink centres (I ended the game before it could build more) and I was unable to access the set structure limits page (it just displayed as blank page with no buildings listed).

edit: my bad, when I take the latest art revolution mod out I can access the building limits page as normal.
edit2 not art rev either but an old structure.json (missing the thermal entries that the new version has) that I was using.

is it ok if you guys add a surrender button in the escape menu ,since leaving the game and your whole base just explodes is kinda not cool. and kind of looks like rage quitting all the time

maybe have a vote surrender screen come up when someone on the team clicks surrender so the whole team can vote to end?

After installation it's not possible to run
Error ''dwmapi.dll missing and etc... ''

Is it mean that it's not possible to install on XP anymore?
Ahh. So sad. :augh:

Or it's can be fixed?

I can't compile it for linux because I'm getting lots of physfs deprecated warnings:
Also is it intended that you can shoot through your own walls?

I'd also like the jammer towers not to work against HQ radar, otherwise it's too overpowered.
And it would be nice if you could implement a multiplayer option to disable auto-repair for all players.
