Devlog update (2014-02-02) Movement tweaks and respawn bugs
« on: February 02, 2014, 05:06:27 pm »



Heya chumps. Here's what we did since the last devlog:

* Modified behavior when changing movement direction to hopefully not mess up advanced moves possible in 1.6.5, yet behave consistently in both directions
* Fixed camera jumping back and forth between the cursor and the map's center when looking outside map bounds
* Fixed incorrectly spawning with/without a parachute after going outside map bounds
* Fixed players that needed to download the upcoming map spawned using the previous map's spawn points, as well as seeing other glitches #239
* Fixed players that needed to download the upcoming map would be disconnected before seeing the final scoreboard
* Fixed cannot delete server with two pipe chars from favorites
* Fixed empty server_info setting in servers soldat.ini makes client display weird chars in F1 menu
* Some minor code cleanup

FryFry and Shoozza played some sort of grabass all week. I didn't pay much attention to it, but think it may have had to do with our planned move from SVN to git for source code management.
Oh, and Shoozza also doodled more with the build scripts.


About the movement direction thing... We're gonna let our local run- and climb savants from the beta crew try out an alpha version of 1.6.7. Hopefully it will restore some of the extra control possible in the previous versions, but without the obvious glitchiness.

First beta version is so distant in time that alpha version is required? I am not happy with this decision because a lot of people want to test new movement changes. We are waiting for it since last final release and it is a quite a lot of time, 3-4months. Nevertheless, I am impressed with all fixes and new stuff were made in last time, so I keep calm and just wait for results.

Weeell releasing an alpha version consisting of just a Soldat.exe to a few individuals with great knowledge about a specific issue, in order to get their feedback, is a hundred times simpler and quicker than releasing a real beta version. In fact, just a few hours after posting the devlog I got exactly the feedback I needed and already know how to fix the remaining issue. You'll get a public beta soon after that.

Though a beta version will still take at least a week more because Shoozza's work on the fancy new build scripts isn't done yet.
