3.1 beta1 has been released!

Postby cybersphinx » 30 Jan 2012, 01:37

The 3.1 series is the first based on the new netcode, with new terrain renderer and many other changes. The main target are systems capable of OpenGL 2.0 (with shaders), but at least the important things like team colours should work with OpenGL 1.4+ (some things might look strange though).

Configuration uses a new directory, if you want to use old mods/maps/savegames, you need to copy them (see FileLocations). Note that savegames from 2.3 and 3.0 are incompatible, only those from newer master snapshots might still work. For mods it depends on what they do, don't expect old mods to work either.

2.3 is now officially unsupported.

Known Bugs:
  • Loading/saving does not always work (#3103)

Changes since the 2.3 series:
  • New terrain renderer
  • Support for 3/5/6/7 player maps

Bug Reports:
This release probably contains bugs, please report them so they can be fixed. If you have trouble getting the game to work at all, consider a forum thread, you will probably get help faster that way.

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).

Download:
As usual, downloads can be found on our download page or directly on Sourceforge.
We want information... information... information.

If you want to play old mods. DO NOT move them ! Their must be more snowball in hell than old mod that can work on that version. :wink:

found 2 bugs.
one is when you are in the screen waiting to start a game and you click ready there is a long delay where there is nothing happening and it seems like the game crashed
the other is when you load a game it does the same thing. there is a long delay where there is nothing happening no progress bar or anything to show you it is loading
no framerate issues with this and the last version :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Downloaded linux tarball. Msg about 'hg identify: option -B not recognized', followed by compiler errors that suggest autorevision.sh produced a crappy version.cpp.

Trying to make again to get nice error msgs for cut & paste - autorevision.sh script is hanging...

It's going good except for stuttering when I move the camera around my base or to other bases and some areas.

Please create a bug report and upload the logs there.

Both of those things are from something I committed which unmasked very minor issues in different areas of the code (the issues are more or less purely visual).

Vsync enabled should be working better now too, I think enabled should be the preferred setting.

Does this release include the latest JS API from master?

At the time of writing, it contains everything in master except for a Semperfi-JS bugfix (and Semperfi-JS is disabled in 3.1), so the JS API should be included.
