Mac OS X Terrain Branch Build, Inc. FMVs

Post by EvilGuru » 25 Nov 2008, 22:22

Hi all,

Being just one month from Christmas (or Gravmass if you so prefer, in celebration of the birth of Newton in 1642) I have decide to give all of you Mac users a present — namely a build of the in-development terrain branch complete with FMVs!

There are some issues to be aware of:
  • 10.4 users must have X11 installed (it can be found on the Tiger CD/DVD) in order for Warzone to run.
  • PPC users: There may still be some endian issues lurking, please report these!
  • This is a debug build of an unstable branch, some things may not work, please report these appropriately.
  • It may or may not be suitable for day-to-day play. I will update it as the branch is worked on. Subscribe!
  • Performance may be worse than 2.1 as a result of the new textures. This is being worked on, hold tight. My X3100 2.4Ghz Core 2 Macbook can get 20 FPS in Cam 1.
  • Text may be slightly corrupted/hard to read on some systems. This is a known bug (due to texture compression) due to be fixed any time now.
The build can be found here: http://download.gna.org/warzone/snapsho ... _r6383.dmg size 282MiB.

Enjoy!

Regards, Freddie.

Here is a regular trunk build of r6390. Notably the text problem which some of you may have experienced with the terrain branch build of r6383 are now fixed. (And a new terrain branch build can be expected in the next couple of days — after some more bugs are fixed.)

You can find it here: http://download.gna.org/warzone/snapsho ... _r6390.dmg

Regards, Freddie.

This is not a mod. It is a vanilla release of the game on a par with the nightly windows builds, just updated slightly less regularly.

I have no idea of any of this programming jargon as all I've ever written are batch files on a school computer, and simple ones at that, but thank you for clarifying that :)

You will need to speak to Giel about that.

Hi,

There is one for windows, but it is snapshot :) Here is the link to the snapshots:

http://download.gna.org/warzone/snapshots/?M=D

Search for the one with terrain in the name, by the way you may want to use the 'last modified' tab, because you want the most recent version I think :P
