Warzone 2100 version 2.2.0 Final!

Postby Buginator » 30 May 2009, 22:08

It has been a long time coming, but we are finally able to bring you a version of Warzone 2100 that includes all the FMVs from the original game!

Please note, mod loading has been changed! See viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3088 for more information.

For the windows installer, you will be asked:
Do you wish to enable support for languages other than English, French, or German?
[Default is NO]

(NOTE: This will have a huge performance impact on Vista, on the first run of the program, while fontconfig builds the font cache if you answer yes.)


The reason for this is, we are using a custom font for fontconfig, called DejaVuSans.ttf. This font does not have all the characters for all languagues. That means, if you need to use another font, then fontconfig needs to build a font cache from the windows fonts directory in order to have a font that works with your language. The downside to that is, there is a huge performance impact on Vista, on the first run of the program, while fontconfig builds the font cache.


Also note, that this version of Warzone will also be the last version that supports older hardware. We do plan on having 2.2 as a LTS build though. (Long term support--we will try our best. :3 If you know other developers, tell them to join up!)


Here is the Changelog. For a full review of everything we have done, you must check the svn logs.

Hmm. Actually, Neuralize's icons did make it in. Buggy and I are just really bad at communicating with each other. :P

I have Norton Internet Security 2009 installed. During the 2.2 installer, it prompted me when the installer attempted to make the connection for the videos. I wasn't fast enough when I finally authorized the connection. The installer reported a timeout and failed to install the videos.

Is there anyway to install the videos independently in this situation?

Thanks

All hail v220, very smooth operation. One suggestion for improvement: The new rotating radar map is a nice touch. Perhaps the North side should be marked in some way? Keep us from getting into a spin when busy. Of course, this suggestion is in addition to the one concerning change of colour from red to orange in the notification panel.

byeeeee

On the download page, there's a download for sequences.wz, which you can grab and place in Program Files/Warzone 2100/.
