SOLDAT 1.6.9 RELEASED!
« on: October 31, 2015, 02:07:32 am »
After a long delay I present you: Soldat 1.6.9!

A big thank you to everyone in the dev team who helped with this version especially Exhunter for the scriptcore work and fixing bugs.
Also thanks to urraka for helping in debugging some left over bugs before the release and with releasing this version.

In this release the client enjoyed some minor graphical updates and bugfixes.
On the server side most changes are script core changes and again bug fixes.

Here are some highlights of this version:

New default grahics by L[one]R and Michal Zajaczkowski


New gui theme


Numpad taunts for those who need them

Fixed bugs like high cpu useage when starting a game several times


New map design for ctf_Death (Video)


Bonus screenshot of ctf_Division remake for the brave ;)

I'd like to thank everyone from the community who helped getting this release done.
Special thanks go to MrBungle and L[one]R for their last minute help. /takeoff

The text of the changelog is really small, I think this is what he meant. What about putting the list of changes in spoiler with normal sized font?

I've honestly been missing you too MrBungle, and I'm sure we will share even more and greater experiences together.
I'll be more available now that I've set up Mirc to open on start-up, after a win10 install.

Minecraft is epic, we need to set up a server that will stay open even if Fryer goes to sleep (for the record, the issue wasn't that he went to sleep, it was that he hadn't gone up yet). I also want to invite some more guys from the Soldat community so that we can speed up the mining process a bit and allways have someone to play with.

As for Soldat I've been missing it a lot. There's just no other game that I can feel like I contribute to something! I wish I could code so that I could help Shoozza more, and I wish I was a better mapper so I could remake some maps, but I'll contribute where I know how to. Maybe I will organize Mantis Bugtracker like a Nazi would organize the Jews (Ya, I took a chance on a slightly offensive joke)

Lastly, Happy Haloween everyone! And this might be strange but I have this funny picture in my head that Shoozza goes out knocking on peoples doors looking like spaghetti code :) That shit is scary >.<

FYI- a lot of people -including myself- are reporting lag spikes on this version of Soldat and we believe it could be the client and not the server as other users connected to the same server are unaffected. So far those who are experiencing this are users on Win7 x64. Have you guys noticed as well? Thanks.

Came here to post this, although i'm one of the ones that have been unaffected by this....yet

I have Win7 x64 and after ~30mins of gameplay my ping is 2000 and I saw today little graphic bug(I'm using GTX660) when that big lag came(stretched texture or w/e it is). On my laptop(it's pretty old) with XP i have spikes every 15s which i never experienced on 1.6.8. By the way when im using frame limit no matter what i will set it will be always about 60 and spiky(I tryed vsync with full screen and it's probably best stable 60fps).

I've experienced similar problem with lag spikes after update to 1.6.9. Tried to mess with config a bit and turning vertical sync and frame limit off seems to help. Im using Win10 x64.

Fresh installation of Win7 ultimate 64x here. I downloaded 1.6.8, then patched it to 1.6.9, and I have no issues at all.

I experienced the same, however, somehow managed to fix it by changing some config settings. Yet I know that the same settings don't fix the problem for other ppl

When I alt+tab and come back to the game, the screen often (but not always) looks like this: instead of being fullscreen. In 1.6.8 this has never happened to me. Im using Win7 x64.

I can reproduce this 100% if I do ctrl alt delete after alt tabbing from soldat. It is not new to this version for me. It was there on 1.6.8 aswell.

Hi! I have a big problem with ping and frame-rate in the game.

On all servers with "BIG TAUNTS" ( script: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=38615.msg472482#msg472482 ) my ping rises to 800-1000, even 1500!!! And I have 0-2 fps! Everything is back to normal when subtitles disappear. But it happens again when someone shoots at me with auto-weapons (Ak-47,Minimi,HKMP5,Styer) or when I push the "T" and I want to write something.

Frame-Rate was much better in 1.6.8 version.

My netbook:

Acer D270
Intel Atom N2600 1.6 GHz
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3600
Memory: 2GB
Windows 7 STARTER 32bit

Sorry for my english.

Sorry for my english.
Solution: Use BigText in script (SC3). Open scripts: and set old Bigtext or drawtext or drawtextex on Players[HERE ID PLAYER SEE].BigText(2,'TEXT HERE',COPY everything is on the text in the old code);
Where HERE ID PLAYER SEE Give the variable responsible for player id or 0 if for all. Next open includes.txt and copy text. Next create config.ini and paste:
[Config]
Name = YourScriptName
MainFile = paste last copy text here
Legacy = 1
And save. Next remove includes.txt
U can send me your script on pw and i repair this for u.

---

I see new bug if I use givebonus (in sc2 and sc3) and give bonus is granade not work :( if I use givebonus clustergranade not work, player will then receive 3 grenades but normal,even if the limit is 1-2.

Developers are aware of the issue and they are working on the fix.

I installed through patching rather than a full install and have not experienced what everyone else has

I'd personally like to say that this version of Soldat works out of the box with wine 1.6.2 with literally no wine tweaks/etc. This is the best release I've seen under wine ever. Good job shoozza and friends.

I use wine 1.7.34 and don't need any tweaks to run Soldat either. I had experienced the famous lagspikes first but was able to fix it with tweaking Soldat itself only. Wine config is standard.

I didn't have the same luck with wine 1.7.54, the gosteks don't appear, and the gostek parts only appear when I die. I didn't test my mod with it yet. But I need to do a reset on my wine to see if it will still happen.

EDIT: the gostek spawns in the center of the map, but the camera movement follows the actual position of the player. Every time I shoot, it shoots from the gostek. I can only throw nades if the camera is in same place as the gostek. That's some weird ****... Well, I don't think it was caused by Soldat devs because I tested wine 1.7.49 with previous soldat version and it worked well, yet when I try that same version now with that same wine, it shows the same bug. Yet when I installed wine 1.7.41, it doesn't bug (either soldat version).

I just know wine 1.7.42 and above broke another app that I used too.

@deguix: Have you tried out an older version yet? (like the one jrgp mentioned)
@Crimson Goth: It's a programme to emulate windows software on both Linux and MacOS systems.

@Everyone who has the LAGSPIKE issue: Please try the solution mentioned here and report back to that topic.

- Initializing bots with no FavouriteWeapon defined in them spit out an error, it would be much better to make them pick random weapons instead.

- During Survival Infiltration Match, after you kill all the players in the blue team, the red team gets 30 points for winning the round and then after taking the flag to the red base in the same time, they get another 30 points.

Every full server or just Zabijaka's? There's a redirecting script running on Zabijaka's ctf servers, maybe that't the problem.

Unfortunately this version has severe bugs.

- Ping sometimes gets very high. Also for me (Win7, 32bit, Geforce 8600GT)
- Soldat will freeze/crash if I try to join a server that is already full.

Also people playing on the server complained about their pings.

Same problem with high ping here. Only at Zabijaka CTF servers. If sever is empty, ping is normal. At Zabijaka Climb (full server) -> low ping. Other servers -> low ping.

Secondly, when I'm getting kicked for ping, I must wait for returning to lobby. Cursor is not working so I cannot choose 'Exit from game' to leave server. Maybe several seconds, but it's irritating.

It so, indeed, redirect to other server crashes Soldat.
As to the issue with the ping, in my own personal experience after trying several alternative settings, the only solution I found was to play windowed; in other words, playing Soldat in fullscreen is what causes my client (Win7 x64) to have severely high pings. Sadly, this seems to be random as other players accounted they are playing in fullscreen and are unaffected.

Hoping a fix will be released... sooner than later.

Greetings, Soldiers.

I couldn't find an appropriate bugs/issues reporting thread so I'm posting here. Please advise if there is somewhere better for me to provide this info.

Okay, so when playing in Death Match - Survival mode - if the map is changed whilst there are still players alive and there are other players in the server who are dead then when the next map is loaded all the players who were dead in the previous map will be killed at map start and only the players who were alive will spawn. This happens consistently and I can reproduce it both online and offline.

I'll try to keep this brief as I'm sure you've heard enough about it already. I too, and many others, are experiencing the infamous lag spikes. So much so that I now have /unbanlast on taunt. I go from 50 - 2500 ping. Sometimes it happens randomly but it can be expected when approaching someone using an auto weapon. I have tried the suggestion made by CCalp but to no avail. I am on Win 7 32x.

Weapons all seem to work great with the exception of Mp5. This weapon now seems dramatically overpowered. I have seen others mention this too.

Also, just my opinion, but the new registered star graphic is atrocious. No offence to the maker but it the sight of it does sicken me a little. It looks disproportionate and inbred. Please fix the super special shiny star.

Thanks to all those involved in the continued development of this game. There are many people who are very grateful to you for this so keep at it!
