SOLDAT 1.6.7b1 public beta ready for testing!
« on: February 16, 2014, 01:20:07 pm »
Hello Soldaters!

I'm back on the forums and I have something for you: Soldat 1.6.7b1.

This hopefully fixes the issues the climbing community had with 1.6.6.

There are also some new features like background polys (see the devlogs for info)
Download this map and see how they work: http://skoskav.org/etc/soldat/dev/bgtest.pms

If you want to create your own map with background polys check out the new PolyWorks which adds support for them:
http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=35195.0

Please test and let us know what you think and if there are new bugs.
Happy testing!

Soldat 1.6.7b1 changelog:

- Added visualization of the player's MovementAcc by scaling the cursor

- Modified player looking direction to be sent to the server more frequently

- Fixed explosives could bink team mates #398

- Fixed /victory sound only plays once at the end of a round in survival DM/RM #291
- Fixed bink didn't work in non-team based game modes
- Fixed empty server_info setting in servers soldat.ini makes client display weird chars in F1 menu
- Fixed cannot delete server with two pipe chars from favorites
- 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 incorrectly spawning with/without a parachute after going outside map bounds
- Fixed camera jumping back and forth between the cursor and the map's center when looking outside map bounds
- Fixed unable to toggle the weapon menu when carrying less than two weapons #181

Join #Gather.EU on Quakenet IRC to play some beta gathers with the pros!
...PC vs Mac is like AK47 vs M4A1...
<DutchFlame`> i once heard running runescape in the background gave you a speedboost
<Mr> yes, it allocates more electrons, so there are more electrons available for Soldat -> they are streched less and it is more fluent

When you do backflip in the air and push prone its get some weird boost forward, really funny because its backflip, even when you do some jet boost

 Nope that was lagg, but still when you hit prone it stop backflip animation really ugly.
Had some 1v1 but he run away after 3-0 :[

LOL first time after 1.6.4 I have stable 60fps o_O I forgot how its work that way xD

PS lobby doesnt work :/

Great job! Will test soon and edit if needed. :)

Edit:
Great release! The movement is flawless, I really love it!
Maybe you should also put up a server for testing. :) 


Are there any WM changes except AK & Steyr -1 dmg?

General Suggestions:
Set the throwing button default to "G" in my opinion. It is less confusing, and less likely to cause throwing unintentionally.

Bothering me since forever: Taunts with "F" make you throw the weapon...


I noticed when pressing "Tab" it goes "Weapon menu enabled/disabled". Kinda too late when you already picked a weapon, no? :P 

The game should come with more useful taunts and maybe an explanation txt for it, to motivate joining a community and clans.
   Even maybe an ingame way to change taunts, because it's a burden to begin writing it down.

Last but not least, a refreshing CTF map to the mappool would be great. :)
   Here's a great HTF one that isn't in for some reason. And here's an awesome CTF one that needs resizing.
  ctf_Catch has caught my eye as well sometime ago. Great potential, though too hard to sneak the flag.

Edit: The same to the uninstall.

Is that 32 or 64 bit windows?
Does it happen on both?

I dont know why server can not be found on lobby but he is currently running.
It's both happening ingame and on the web lobby?

Whats wrong with the current button?

Please add that to the bugtracker if its not already there. Also old bugs aren't important atm.

I noticed when pressing "Tab" it goes "Weapon menu enabled/disabled". Kinda too late when you already picked a weapon, no? :P 
It will enable/disable the menu for the next spawn

The game should come with more useful taunts and maybe an explanation txt for it, to motivate joining a community and clans.
   Even maybe an ingame way to change taunts, because it's a burden to begin writing it down.
I suppose you should post stuff like this in the suggestions subforum

Last but not least, a refreshing CTF map to the mappool would be great. :)
   Here's a great HTF one that isn't in for some reason. And here's an awesome CTF one that needs resizing.
  ctf_Catch has caught my eye as well sometime ago. Great potential, though too hard to sneak the flag.
The mapping team decides on that i guess they haven't had time to work on it.

PS I have massive amount of bugs in Arsse, dont see player list or any message, only info when connecting
please post tool related bugs in their thread.

Thaks for your  feedback!

Reported then, "F" Taunt drops weapon.
Throwing button mixed with fast movement (fake canonnball) might result incidently throwing the flag.
Increase taunts efficiency topic bumped. Please refer also to the NUMPAD suggestion, as you said it could work.

I was testing it today in 2 gathers @ #Gather.EU. Horrible vast increase in eats amount. I don't know if it's the servers or the game.
Shoozza could you provide a test server?

It's both happening ingame and on the web lobby?

By web lobby did u mean this? http://soldat.thd.vg/en/lobby I don't see any servers on 1.6.7b1, I don't know if it is even possible.

Ingame lobby still shows me number of servers equal 0. My server (run on linux) 79.133.218.4:23076 is online all time. It is curious that I enabled server on my home pc (windows 7) and I could search him on ingame lobby (of course I am using Internet connection, not LAN).

Ok I created a 1.6.7b1 tag in the bugtracker so reporting bugs for 1.6.7b1 should be no problem anymore.
Please register and add the bugs our masters of the bugtracker (Homerofgods and MrBungle) can help you if need (if they are around ofc).

I figured out why the lobby is broken and it wont be fixed until beta2 - sorry.

I was testing it today in 2 gathers @ #Gather.EU. Horrible vast increase in eats amount. I don't know if it's the servers or the game.
Shoozza could you provide a test server?
I will setup one tomorrow

I can't reproduce in x86. If there's a way to use a x64 to do this, tell me.
