Hi everyone,

so I wasn't really working on Soldat this week and somehow nothing happened :S
I'm not sure how much time I'll have this week to work on the installer. Sorry for that.

There are still some translations missing and I still have to finish the installer for the rc.

Since I don't like to disappoint you I think it's time to make the Beta version public.
It was under private testing for a few weeks so some bugs are already fixed.

Download:
Soldat 1.6.3b1
Soldatserver 2.7.3 1.6.3b1

Please post bug in this thread unless they are already in 1.6.2 or earlier versions (if they are in 1.6.2 and earlier add them to the bugtracker - if they aren't there already).
You can link to the bugtracker to get my attention (maybe also write why it should be fixed in this release  ;)

Have fun testing!

Guess I'll download it and play that server mentioned above, hopefully it has a flexible ping limit.

If there is need for it I can host server in EU.

"- Modified weapon balance for normal and realistic mode" Where can I find the balance?

In the folder where you installed Soldat, open the files weapon.ini and weapons_realistic.ini.

That there is a new available version of Soldat. Announcing it on other forums could help Soldat to get known!

Congratulations on the beta , Shoozza , at least you're working hard and i really want to applaud you , we needed something fresh or at least a hint that soldat was going to get better! I've noticed that some people are coming back to soldat ( competitively talking and even in public servers) , there are full almost the entire day! I dont know if its the summer but its really cool!

PS : It's gonna be hard to find a Thai translator but i'll try to help with finding other translators as well with the ones helping atm :P ( aka evho)

I think I'll announce it on KAG's fanpage wall. I could post something in KAG forums...

  • Speedy go!
awesome! :)

good job!

I got a question about the .dll support: The most of the servers are hosted with an linux host. Are .so files supported then also?

Edit: nvm. I'm just plain stupid. Should need to open my eyes better. xD

First of all, here is a changelog of Soldat 1.6.3 beta 1: http://pastebin.com/6yVjXepL

And here is a changelog collected from a Private Beta thread {fixes and modifications made for the next version (beta 2) during a private beta 1 test}:
Quote
- Fixed clicking "default: 23073" changes the port field to 23073 doesn't work
- Fixed "Bot" icon doesn't display for bots from spectators team in F1 menu
- Fixed Bots game info (kills/deaths/health/weapon/team etc.) doesn't reset after server "soft" restart (gamemode change with /GAMEMODE # command or config load with /LOADCON command)
- Fixed names of players from (0) Player team doesn't display in F1 menu at all or "randomly" overlapping names of other players (regardless of the team) in team-based gamemodes
- Fixed capital chars is subfolder names in readonly.txt
- Fixed wrong flag image source links and sizes in manual\register.html
- Fixed wrong link in gostek-gfx\help.txt
- Fixed some GUI element sizes from Soldat.exe and Config.exe to fit tranlsation lines
- Fixed capital chars in names of "Soldatserver.exe" and "Soldatserver" files
- Fixed 'List index out of bounds (0)' error for empty maplist and 'Loop' option enabled
- Fixed Alt + R sometimes triggers a weapon reload #72 again (this bug probably happens for all taunts)
- Fixed 'Too many bots' error for the 'Bot team' options in a team-based game after changing a gamemode

- Modified Sound and Music volumes are now 50% by default
- Modified admins can now be kicked from console, votekick/ping kick/etc shouldn't work (only external anti-cheat kick)

Is it possible to include the MSAC Installation within the Soldat install?

Doubt that because it's not devs' source. Also MSAC isn't an amendment for cheaters anymore...

But I can tell you that Mr (MSAC creator) works to make a real and official AC already...

MSAC will be include when it's ready. AFAIK it's not ready yet so probably not this release.
