Warzone 2100 2.3.2 has been released!

The Warzone 2100 Project brings you 2.3.2.

One of the new features in this release is an option to rotate the screen using the middle mouse button. Those of you with no middle mouse button will be able to rotate the screen by holding down the left and right mouse buttons at the same time.

We’ve also included a new map: 4c-Pyramidal, by Mysteryem.

The map chooser no longer shows “Sk-” in front of every map name. The minimap has been improved with several new features, including a burning icon for burning oil wells.

And we’ve made numerous other fixes to Warzone – the full changelog is below.

Have fun!

Download:
As usual, downloads can be found on our download page or directly on Sourceforge.

Bug Reports:
As usual, we need bug reports to fix problems in the game. Please note that we use tickets only to track bugs, for discussions about how features should work and feature requests we have a dedicated forum section.

For bug reports, see BugReporting for details, in short:

  • Search the existing tickets for your problem, if the problem has already been fixed in SVN, the ticket will be closed.
  • If there is an open one already, feel free to add more info to it.
  • If there is no report yet, make a new ticket.
  • Be as detailed as possible in both summary and description, and either log in with your forum account or leave an email address so we can contact you if we need more information.
  • The more information we have, the easier it is to fix problems, so include savegames/instructions to reproduce the bug, crashdumps, backtraces, screenshots for graphical problems… if you have.
  • When you attach files to a ticket, please add each text/image file separately and uncompressed, so we can view them easily in trac (savegames can and should be zipped, they consist of name.gam, possibly name.es, and the files in the name/ folder).
