Soldat is now available on Steam!
« on: March 31, 2020, 05:13:03 pm »
Dear Soldaters,

The moment many of us have been so patiently waiting for has finally arrived. We're happy to announce that Soldat has just been published on Steam!
The version on Steam is an improved version of Soldat 1.7.1. A full change-log will follow on the steam page once bugfixes are done.

On top of that, the source for Soldat 1.8 will go open-source in the next week.

We would like take this as an opportunity to thank the developers team who invested so many hours into improving this game that we all hold so dearly.

Enjoy and spread the word!

What. The. Actuallalalalalaly. Fuck.
Omg. You did it.... Fucking Congrats! And thanks for sticking with it! [fist]

Around May 2002 - first beta --> 18 years later - Soldat on Steam
I guess we can thank Corona for that (yea, I know bad joke)...

On top of that, the source for Soldat 1.8 will go open-source in the next week.

Nice! First time in a very long time I'm seeing most servers in the lobby full (at 190 players total)

Very nice! I can't believe it finally happens. This is my childhood game and so many memories. It is s good to see Soldat is on Steam so many more players can enjoy it.
I wonder if the devs still intend to do the Mac version for Soldat tho?
My love to Soldat is eternal, forever and always

That's cool it came out on steam finally.  Haven't played in such a long time.  We need an R/S server though!  :D

2 Days ago it was 455 players. Nice. Of course all of them are noobs so it was hilarious watching them fight with physics, their guns and figuring out which key does which. But it won't be long again that I'll be on the bottom of the scoreboard. XD

80-90% of servers have ping 9999 in lobby. Refreshing the lobby does absolutely nothing. These servers are working normally and after joining the ping is 0-33!

Please, fix it!  :-\

Please try steam version if you can't live with 9999 ping issue.

Ok but why these servers always have the normal ping? Even on the no-steam soldat version? any problem with server port? or what?

In my opinion, it would be better to have one version of the game (steam) for everyone. And link to steam version on soldat.pl website. There would be no problems like this.

This problem was a long time ago (1.7.1) . Just click on the server and the ping will refresh.

It's useless  ;D I'm talking about basic version download from here:
https://soldat.pl/en/download/soldat171.zip

Version from steam show the servers ping normally.

Haven't played this since 2007. I've totally forgotten about this game and the steam release has brought me back. Rewriting a server mod I had back then which I can't find in my backups anymore. So hyped about this!

I'm unable to get anybody to join my game. I'm stuck in the 9999 Ping issue. I forwarded my ports, took down my firewall, DMZ'd my local IP and even bypassed my router completely. I tried all of this with both the Steam and Soldat.pl versions. Still unable to have people join my game. Had my friend try and still no luck. Is this a known bug?

lol don't be funny :D

One day after the steam release (500-600 players online)
After a few days (300-400)
Now (100-200)

In a month or two the situation will be the same as before the steam release. That's all about BIG steam release! And now the best and funniest thing... "Con Aimbot" (cheat that programisius shared everyone on this forum) still works on this STEAM VERSION. Great Job! XDD And finally, problem with ping 9999 on the version without steam *. Even that doesn't work properly. But let's enjoy the steam release! Everything is great! XD

* Old players think that half of the servers are down because ping is 9999. Congratulations, well done!

Thanks to helloer and a couple of others, I figured out that my IP is dynamic from my ISP(costs extra for a static one). My workaround is hamachi/zerotier/noip and I'm up and running now.

lmao, what a failure.
Plays the worst it's ever done, it feels totally numb, bullets have no impact at all.
There's no new menu, no match making, it's just 1.7 with an even worse wm.

Compare this https://youtu.be/r8q-VM9410U?t=69 to this https://streamable.com/8vyjh6
This is basically about 7 bullets to kill vs 11 bullets to kill. The guns are even so inaccurate now that you can't aim for the upper part of a soldat, the RNG will push a random amount of bullets above the target... You literally just have to aim for center of mass.
Absolute garbage, way to ruin soldat.

It will probably work on native steam for linux if you enable "steam play" for your entire steam library, which enables steam's built in wine-fork for all games.

A better curiosity is that there are about 123 servers and the average number of players varies between 20-60, so you can safely assume that only the owners of the servers play :)

Or they forgot that they're hosting servers lol - I remember like 1-2 years ago there were even still servers on 1.4.2 and 1.5, even downloaded those versions back then to check out wth was happening; on 1.5 basically one hacker was slaying some total noobs back then XD

Ok, time for a conclusion.




Bro stop, IM DYING XDD

It happened because MM butchered game by forcing release on Steam before dev-team finished 1.8, fixing major issues and adding all the nice new stuff they were working on and wanted to add. GG
I hope he wont fuck up the 2nd one in same way - by leaving development of it before it's done
