I see the wm hasn't been touched at all, will it stay like this for the actual release? I wish you co-operated with some of the gather channels to tune the wm, as this way you would get a lot more feedback than from a public beta that only few people are interested to try because of the lack of players. Yes, it goes in a circle but public betas will never attract enough players to completely avoid bigger problems after the actual release.

Cut the cycle to half with the auto-updater and we're on to something.

Is there a way to download the beta, installing it next to the stable one, and make it to use the maps/sceneries/etc from the stable's version folder? I don't want to overwrite the version and coping few GBs of maps and all this stuff is kind of waste of space, thats why i ask.

Yes, you can create a directory junction in Windows to make e.g. your 1.6.6 maps folder point to 1.6.5. Delete or rename the 1.6.6 maps/scenery folder, then open a Run prompt and type:

Code: [Select]
mklink /J C:\Users\skoskav\Games\Soldat166b1\maps C:\Users\skoskav\Games\Soldat165\maps
mklink /J C:\Users\skoskav\Games\Soldat166b1\scenery-gfx C:\Users\skoskav\Games\Soldat165\scenery-gfx
...

So as I've been testing it today I've run only into one bug but later about that. I really like then new movement (probably has to be tweaked a bit here and there but I'm not a runner so I won't say anything about that). Overall game itself seems to run smoother.

As to the bug: the names of the team members are not at the edge of the screen for me. They appear in the middle or somewhere where they shouldn't. My guess it has something to do with scaling the interface.
My settings when I've noticed that were:
  • Fullscreen 1440*900
  • Windowed 1280*800
  • Scale_Interface=0 (default: 1)

See attached screenshots.

Good job!

The animation of the gostek from other monitor looks enjoyable, but i am not that sure about.
The main thing: no warping looking movement, if rather then a buggy looking movement without warps.

This is very positive.
With that in mind, I see that rolling and backflipping is still affecting reload time, you didn't have time to implement it skoskav? (reload time should not be affected by rolling, backflipping or proning/unproning. Keep nading as it is)

And we still need to adjust the weapon mode! DE is ridiculous

Didn't make it into 1.6.6. Hopefully 1.7 (which shouldn't be that far away either).

I've spent all my spare time developing rather than playing, and got neither much constructive feedback on IRC nor in the Weapon Balance Discussion board to go by. If you have any thoughts then post them there.

Me and Fryer did some testing, I'm gonna mark the tested and working stuff in green, and the tested and not working stuff in red
The ones that have no color is not tested.

Soldat 1.6.6b1 changelog:
- Added the ability to roll out of prone when on ground
- Modified made self-bink halve accumulation rate anytime when crouched or proned, and not only when staying still
- Modified the unprone animation to be "slippery" so you don't lose momentum when touching ground with it

- Fixed not being able to immediately sidejump out of crouch
- Fixed TScriptTeam events wrongly exported
- Fixed GetPlayerStat(id,'primary') and PrimaryNum are the same IDs (#374)
- Fixed Map.Objects index span is limited to 32 (#381)
- Fixed debug=2 setting in soldat.ini crashes soldatserver #394

I will now comment on the red ones:

-
Fixed faster weapon switching glitch when pressing both [change weapon] and [throw weapon] keys by only allowing the latest of the two buttons pressed
It seams to only work one way.  If you press [throw weapon] then [change weapon] it will cancel the throwing and just change weapon as it should.
If you press [change weapon] then [throw weapon]
it will mostly just change weapon, except for sometimes where it makes a quick change and drops the weapon.

-
Fixed freecam didn't move smoothly in widescreen #277
If you remember how it was before, smooth one way and laggy the other way. Now it's laggy both ways instead of smooth both ways. ^.^ Your idea of smooth was not my idea of smooth atlest.

- Fixed team mates could be binked under some circumstances #398
You still get binked if someone on your team throws a nade on you, is it supposed to be like that? The other weapons sems ok.
