Warzone 2100 2.1 Beta 2 released

Post by DevUrandom » 16 Mar 2008, 16:31

Ladies and Gentlemen,

may I introduce to you the marvelous Warzone 2100 version 2.1 beta 2!

This time we bring you:
  • Translations to various languages: german (95% complete), italian (35%), french (25%), dansk (13%), dutch (11%) and russian (9%)
  • Font issues fixed
  • New menu backdrops
  • Some visual and performance improvements
And of course the usual bugfixes...
Of course you can find the full list of changes in the ChangeLog.

Distributors should note that Warzone 2100 will work with QuesoGLC 0.6 and higher, but not with 0.7.0. This is because that version contains an incompatibility to some graphics drivers which was fixed in 0.7.1.

Most known issues from beta 1 persist:
  • Savegames from the 2.0 series can not be loaded with this version.
  • The multiplayer code has become a lot more stable than it was, but running out of sync still happens. Though it now happens less often and the sync differences are smaller.
  • The game in general still aborts a lot in debug builds due to failed assertions.
Download
You can find Windows binaries and the sourcecode in our downloads section.

[red]UPDATE1[/red]:
Distributors are advised to include this patch which fixes the encoding for non UTF-8 locales, so translated strings can be rendered by QuesoGLC.

[red]UPDATE2[/red]:
Windows users on non-english systems should get the revised version of the beta 2, which fixes the problem with missing strings. (bug #11277)

Should be, yes. At least in all test no one had any further problems.

Some errors in the COMPILE file:

"The INSTALL file in this directory may also help you." <- that doesn't exist.

"Note that the forth command must be run as a privileged user in order to succeed. " <- should be fourth or last.

I couldn't find the physfs-dev package though  :-\. Just libphysfs, and that wasn't pleasing the ./configure. Oh well...

Great job, guys!  Fonts work here on Gentoo (QuesoGLC 0.7.1) and on WinXP, which previously had problems with both beta1 releases.  I'll let you know about network tests, hopefully soon  :D

Keep up the great work, guys.

Yep, we noticed that already... :( All strings containing non-ASCII characters are plain missing.
bug #11277 tracks it.
I hope to get that fixed for the next beta.

Yay!  I can play this on my laptop now, but still waiting for Mac OS X updates for my desktop ;__;
Still, progress is progress.  Good job.
