New master snapshot 20111026 has been released!

Postby cybersphinx » 26 Oct 2011, 22:20

New master snapshot. More script and savegame porting.
Older savegames won't load with this version.

We could use some community help with the following:
  • test saving / loading of campaign games.
  • overall performance of the game in both single player & multiplayer.
  • specific performance of the game (scrolling around, testing with Vsync on/off)
  • multiplayer game testing!
  • spotting campaign bugs


Changelog:
General
  • Change: Show planned structure blueprints to allies (86c9451525)
  • Change: Support for ECM jammers (#340, 55a6259b12)
  • Fix: Prevent VTOLs from getting stuck on buildings (#2534, 818e9b4236)
  • Fix: Prevent droids getting strange orders after loading a savegame (d74a73a34d)
  • Fix: Factories build properly again after loading a savegame (850e0e5e00)

Bug Reports:
This release probably contains bugs, please report them so they can be fixed.

See BugReporting for details, in short:
  • Search the existing tickets for your problem, if the problem has already been fixed in git, the ticket will be closed.
  • If there is an open one already, feel free to add more info to it.
  • If there is no report yet, make a new ticket (one per issue).
  • Be as detailed as possible in both summary and description, and either log in with your forum account or leave an email address so we can contact you if we need more information.
  • The more information we have, the easier it is to fix problems (or the other way around, the harder it is for us to reproduce a problem, the less likely it is to get fixed), so include savegames/instructions to reproduce the bug, crashdumps, backtraces, screenshots for graphical problems... whatever is relevant.
  • When you attach files to a ticket, please add each text/image file separately and uncompressed, so we can view them easily in trac (savegames can and should be zipped, they consist of name.gam, possibly name.es, and the files in the name/ folder).

I just downloaded the new master snapshot and started installing when noticing there are HQ-Videos =)
So I aborded German installation to first have a look at the new HQ-Videos in English. Because I don´t like to mix up both languages, I decided to go for an English installation only.
When executing the English installer I saw that the little addition (HQ) was missing here.

No big deal at all, but it may be confusing for new people to have English Videos twice, since the third option has the addition (LQ).

Asgorath, I downloaded these videos in HQ and did not notice any difference in the quality of them ..... I do not want to speak ill of the work is to make videos, but I think they are just taking up space on my HD

Well, the "HQ" is only relative to the source material, I'd call them "abysmally bad", "barely tolerable" and "still not good" instead.

I guess the most noticeable difference is the increased saturation in the second. Also the edges are a bit less jaggy.

The difference between HQ and normal isn´t THAT big, but noticable to me. And every improvement is good =)
Videos look beautiful to me. And I don´t care if videos take +400MB for HQ. I own a 1TB hard drive...

Apart from that:
Would it be possible to offer download of German (and if existing) other videos as well wheater at the Installer or "directly" on Warzone2100.net?
Up to now German Videos can be downloaded on http://board.warzone2100.de/news.php only...
What if this page may close? Then there would be no opportunity left to get German videos :augh:

Putting this report here to start with. Don't know whether it is a bug or just one of those things...

Loading (vanilla) save game for third time causes WZ to crash. Notice that the contents of both save folders of the game are incomplete. I tried combining the contents but that crashed WZ too - see log 122816.

my machine is top of the line with SLI and this release plays like sh*t. :evil:
it has problems with everything mentioned above. :annoyed:
the performance is terrible and it only gets worse the more you play it.
W-T-F?
why the delay between when you order your unit to do something and the time it takes to do it?
2.3.9 has none of these issues!
