Hello community!

I prepared the deployment scripts for the beta release and they seem to work.
So expect a private beta in a few days.

Things I need to do before the release:
  • Ask the other devs if maps, weapon mod are ready
  • Create the changelog (already working on that)
  • Find out where the update info file for the last beta updater was located (aka where the version.txt of it pointed to)
  • Test the Installers

I expect the translators who didn't update their translations to update them after the beta release (remind me if I forgot to add them).
We added new lines and replaced "Anticheat" with "Anti-Cheat"  in the English translation (sidenote: we did the same for folder names).

Besides that I tried some simple speedup changes for Soldat.
You should notice that the GUI control text show up instantly instead after some delay and maybe the game runs a bit more fluently now.

There were also a few code cleanup and formatting changes and I noticed that the Soldat manual wasn't updated for 1.6.2 so I did that too.

Skoskav modified the volume controls to scale decibels exponentially (see bug id 75).

Some simple dll injection checks were added but don't expect too much.

Soldat now officially supports the Ukrainian language for both installation and game GUI.

There were also some minor GUI changes on the start game tab, but you won't notice them unless you compare the different versions.
If you played older versions of Soldat you might remember the Soldat text at the top right corner changed to gray when the window was inactive and to white when it was active.
That has been fixed too (didn't work in the last release).

I installed the GPProfiler and did some profiling for Soldat.exe. So in the future bottlenecks can be detected ;).

Glad to know you are working on that.  :)

Good job and keep with it! I'll be waiting for my private beta :D

i hope the minigun of normal mode is nerfed. it's horribly op&overused on publics.

e: actually now that i think about it, replacing or removing it completely wouldn't cause much harm. people will always hate it and minisurfing, which is the only time the gun comes handy, happens very rarely.

So true. I had to disable it on my servers because of the lag few of them caused when being used simultaneously.

Im chill like that

I wonder Skoskav reading every post in WM forum. He even should to, or he's not responsible and he shouldn't hold so important position anymore...
