3.1 beta6 has been released!

Postby cybersphinx » 14 Mar 2012, 03:22

While working savegames are nice, working multiplayer games are as well, so here is beta6.

Known Issues:

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).

About the 3.1 series:
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.

Changes since the 2.3 series:
(Items marked with a * were already in the cancelled 3.0 series)
  • New terrain renderer*
  • Support for 3*/5*/6*/7*/9/10 player maps
  • Targetting by line of sight, preventing shooting through terrain or too early*
  • Gates in multiplayer games
  • New deterministic netcode that makes sure the same things actually happen for all players, should be much more cheating-resistant
  • New power system, power is deducted in full at the start, and when power is low, in the order things were queued
  • Unit targeting is more intelligent, they won't all shoot one target when one shot is sufficient
  • Remove fog of war/mist options in favour of a combined explored/seen mode
  • Stored templates. Automatically adds a unit design when all needed research is available
  • Command line parameters now need a '=' (which was optional before), e.g. --resolution=1400x1050
  • Apple systems: Drop support for PPC and Mac OS X 10.4, add support for 64 bit Intel on Mac OS X 10.6+

Changelog for 3.1 beta6:
General
  • Fix: Make VTOLs rearm on rearming pads, not beside them (#3285, b4ad988996)
  • Fix: Make building on a tile only accessible diagonally work (#3215, c831b5b87a)

Quick question: When you alt-tab out of the game shouldn't the game pause? If its supposed to its not, at least not for me..

Thx for that release. Saved Games are loading now BUT STILL there is that bug of the Truck Factorys.

After loading a game, Truck Factory 1 and 5 chance their positon.
That means, what was build in Factory 1 is now building in Factory 5 and other way round. And in Factory 5 additional build from Factoy 1 is than included.
Also the Number Picture has changed their position. That means 1 is coming out at 5 and other way round.

Hope next release you can fix that.

And keep on rocking. Great Game meanwhile

Started a new campaign and so far have not had this problem, at least not for the first 4 factories. Will start from that save this evening and see if I get the above result or if it doesn't start bugging out until the 5th factory.

No, but there is nearly no difference between standard ones and "HQ" (except of file size). ;-)
