Bugtracker and Hotfix news
« on: September 13, 2011, 08:36:30 am »
Hello people!

Thanks to jrgp we can use the bugtracker for reporting bugs again.
The bugs.soldat.pl bugtracker is empty now and the old bugs will be accessible via an archive bugtracker.
We will ignore all the old bugs so you have to rereport them if they still happen in 1.6.0.

Please also report your bugs you wrote on the forums there.

If you want to discuss bugs in the forums just link to the bugtracker in your bugs post :)

I think it will take a day or so till the archive bugtracker will be up.


And now about the hotfix.
A few people already asked when it will be released.
I have time for coding soldat again and I hope we can release an update in 2 weeks or less.

Still have to figure out which important bugs aren't fixed but I hope we can make it in time.

We fixed following bugs till now:

Modified increased jet multiplier on maps to account for the loss of jets due to a previous bug fix
Fixed Soldat.exe icon issue http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=40428.0;attach=27944;image post: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=40428.msg496407#msg496407
Fixed running soldat with -demo highlights wrong tab
Fixed Chinese title when minimized fullscreen soldat http://nandt.org/~taxi/Chinese.png
Fixed Raycast returning random value for distance
Fixed weapon stats displayed on top of scoreboard if F2 is pressed first
Fixed stat. gun hits added to currently held weapon
Fixed only having one usable secondary selected gives you another weapon as secondary
Fixed bullets collide with team player collide polygons in server


Hmm I'm sure we also fixed the Directx resolution bug but it's not mentioned in the corkboard done note :D

Yeah the DX bug is fixed, but I never put it on the cork. :P I also fixed other issues but didn't update the cork for them.

Nice to see it back.

A suggestion about categories: perhaps there should be a "graphics" category as well, to address any issues with how sceneries and polygons are rendered. "GUI" sounds more like problems with menus and interface, so an issue like non-working anti-aliasing doesn't exactly belong there.

Also a question: what's your definition of "major" and "minor" issues? It would be nice if you could clarify it in this post. Thanks. :)

Not sure.
Need to figure out if thats a good idea (what are the advantages and disadvantages?)
One thing that I see is that it might be bad because suggestions would flood the bugtracker and make it hard to see bugs (more focus on suggestions instead of bugs)

Google Moderator could be used for suggestions. That's what MM uses for KAG right now. It's not nearly as feature-rich as GetSatisfaction, but basic functionality is still pretty nice so it may be worth a look:

it wasn't about raycast returning bad values, it was about raycast giving false results.
Also, what about invisible flames and m2 bullets?

From what I found in my testing the raycast fuction was giving me wrong values for the distance it reported, which I found to be the result of it not actually setting the distance variable correctly. Fixing that made it work as expected.

<Mr> yes, it allocates more electrons, so there are more electrons available for Soldat -> they are streched less and it is more fluent
