Devlog update (2018-09-10) Back after a break
« on: September 10, 2018, 06:15:18 am »
Hi guys, devlogs are back after a "short" break over summer.

New developers
Two new developers have joined the dev team:

- Savage
- thestoreyofbook

Greet them warmly :).

Changes in the net code

After returning to the devteam we had to decide which branch of code to use for the next version of the game, we had many options but the most sensible choice was the branch called `feature/netcode` which had everything that was done for 1.8 version and as the name of the branch itself indicates: changes in the code responsible for communication between the server and the client. Here are some of the most important changes:

The first change was to split into pieces a gigantic file called Net.pas which had 13 thousand lines of code into several smaller and organized units, thanks to which the work on the code became more readable.

The second change was to remove the old code which had accumulated in the code for years and was not used at all. After this change, more than 6 thousand lines of code were removed while maintaining the same functionality of the game. A lot of recent exploits were caused because of that code.

The third change was to replace the libraries responsible for sending and receiving UDP packets. Soldat used different network libraries for the server (Indy10) and for the client (NMUDP) - spaghetti code at its finest. With quick research, we have found a better library made specifically for use in games called ENet(http://enet.bespin.org/). ENet is a library that offers a number of functionalities that have been missing in soldat for years, including:
- Connection management
    ENet creates a connection between the server and the player that we can supervise and easily control.
- Reliability & Sequencing
    Sometimes important packets get lost or come in a different order. ENet solves this problem for us by making sure that packet always gets to the destination in the right order.
... and a lot more.

These changes will not result directly in the hit registration improvements as many would like to see but certainly, they bring us closer to the goal of "fixing" the netcode.

- Urraka added multitexture support on the rendering side but we still need to support it in the map editor so I encourage you to help Nedi who is working on polybobin - https://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=45191.0

- Urraka fixed bullet-hitpoints intersection check - no more leg shots registered as headshots [Alphaguy].

- Urraka merged all explosion hit detection code into one function and modified it to use hitpoint modifiers - this will allow us to better balance nades [nades]

- Savage committed his first commit to Soldat repository: "Fixed alpha channel for WorldText".  8)

- Thestoreybook committed his first commit to Soldat repository: "Add player team cvar, useful for matchmaking to bypass team select menu".  8)

- I have added auto updater support for the nonsteam version (still WIP).

- I have started working on new map downloads implementation that will be HTTP-based.

Steam thing

Our store page on Steam has been approved and will be soon made public as "Coming Soon" title, we still don't have an exact date of release but it will certainly take place this year.

Alpha builds

The first phase of the alpha tests will be soon available to everyone. We already have working CI for soldat so all we need to do is to push out those builds to the public.

Apology

I apologize for the lack of devlogs in such a long time and for less than expected progress on the game. I can assure you that this will not happen again.

;
; Changelog from 1.7.1 to 1.8 (Steam release):
; work in progress...
                                                                                                               
;Codename: Papergun
   

; Notes:
; 1. Some settings for non-standard weapons won't work for example: reload time on stationary gun or grenade for obvious reasons
; 2. Soldat uses ticks for measuring time. 60 ticks = 1 second
; 3. e.g. 90 ticks = 1.5 second, 10 ticks = 0.16666667 second
; 4. FireInterval, ReloadTime, Bink and StartUpTime are measured in ticks

; Damage Calculation:
; The 'Damage' value does NOT represent the actual damage dealt by a bullet. The formula for calculating the final damage dealt by a bullet is the result of: [Damage] * [CurrentSpeed] * [HitboxModifier]
; Note that your personal speed may inherit speed to the bullet.
; CurrentSpeed = Speed + PlayerSpeed * Inherited Velocity

; Fireinterval:
; The rate of fire is measured in ticks. The lower the interval, the faster the weapon fires.

; Ammo:
; Defines the size of a full clip.

; Reloadtime:
; The reloadtime is measured in ticks. e.g. ReloadTime=360 will result in a 6 seconds reload period.

; Speed:
; The speed is the initial base speed of a bullet. speed affects damage and does also influence the 'self boost' amount for Spas-12 and XM214 Minigun.
; A fired bullet is affected by the velocity of the player (YourSpeed).
; A fired bullet loses its speed over time, which will then also result in less damage.

; Bullet Styles:

;  1 = Plain bullet
;  2 = Frag grenade
;  3 = Shotgun pellets
;  4 = M79 grenade
;  5 = Flame
;  6 = Punch
;  7 = Arrow
;  8 = Flame arrow
; 11 = Knife/Chainsaw
; 12 = LAW missile
; 13 = Knife
; 14 = M2 bullet

; Example: changing the value 'BulletStyle=4' to 'BulletStyle=12' at the [M79] config, will result in LAW missiles being fired.

; StartUpTime:
; The StartUpTime is measured in ticks. It is currently being used at the XM214 Minigun and the Barret.
; e.g. 'StartUpTime=120 will result in 2 seconds of a delay.

; Bink:
; If the player is hit by a bullet, his aim is not accurate for this amount of time, the mouse cursor in-game will then enlarge as an indicator.
; Negative values mean self-bink. The lower the number, the more inaccurate the weapon will get after firing.

; MovementAcc:
; Defines how much the aim is getting affected by the players movement, the higher the value, the more you have to be still to aim properly. Using the jet results in the aim to be affected the most.

; BulletSpread:
; Defines how tight or loose the bullets will group when standing still.

; Recoil:
; Defines the amount that the cursor will fling up when fired.

; Push:
; Defines the weight of a bullet, factors together with its velocity to push away the receiving player and objects (flags and kits) but NOT yourself (self boost).

; InheritedVelocity:
; In percent how much velocity the bullet inherits from the player. This will result in higher / lower damage values, depending of the direction you move to and in which speed you move.

; - Due to the divisions, older weapon.ini files will not work as intended, until you fix the values.
; Use the following tool to convert old 'weapons.ini' files https://github.com/Soldat/WMConverter

- I have started working on new map downloads implementation that will be HTTP-based.
Oh, could this be Node on the server side? :D

I can assure you that this will not happen again.
it will certainly take place this year.
That's a lot of statements I did not expect to hear. Hopefully true.

Guess which weapon!

Yep, you guessed it; Barret still fucked for competitive play

Use some common sense when it comes to bink ffs either all weapons should have it or none should have it; and if it's the former, it should be proportional across all weapons based on select relevant criteria
And if you're asking "what criteria?" you have no business being anywhere near the WM

Looks like things are coming along well. I was a bit worried at first since there were no devlogs on the forum for months, but lots of code commits shown in soldat discord painted a completely different picture. Great job, keep it up! :)

Steam thing

Our store page on Steam has been approved and will be soon made public as "Coming Soon" title, we still don't have an exact date of release but it will certainly take place this year.

Seriously this year?

The amount of bugfixes, implementations and etc you have done in such a small amount of time especially in summer where everyone has other things to do is amazing. You have no need to apologize and yet you still did it, thank you very much for your efforts, not only helloer ofc, everyone in the dev team.

Bring back our beloved game, long live Soldat!

P.S: 80e4e9d5        thestoreybook    Add player team cvar, useful for matchmaking to bypass team select menu
       b7dcf55e        thestoreybook    adding cvars specific to what menu items show during a ranked matchmaking game

Is that what I think it is? Its like a dream come true

Yes, matchmaking talks were already at this summer and kind person thestoreybook assured us that this can be done in some*short* time.
Yes, this is matchmaking :)

I still wonder at people posting here about lack of progress when there is a lot more things done(helloer mentioned only important ones, I think a lot of small fixes, commits aren't listed for a reason to demonstrate how much the guys have actually done in short time). It's not too hard to use Discord, boys ;)

Anyway, happy to see that helloer found some time to communicate with us and deliver, even though anyone with proper English skills and will to post could do that with an approval of devs, of course.
Not because I don't like the devlogs :)
Thank you and the others for your work and looking forward to new progress reports.

P.S.: funny thing, right after I posted a reply about the stuff, new devlog appeared. Perhaps I should do it more often to satisfy forum folks :P

I like that you have focused on the netcode, especially that part of it. Thumbs up
