New master snapshot 20120109 has been released!

New year, new master snapshot.

Again lots of changes since the last snapshot. This one will hopefully lead to a 3.1 release soon (yes, we’ll skip 3.0, since things are quite different than in the 3.0 betas). For one thing, window and input is by default handled by SDL again, hopefully solving Qt-related performance problems some people were seeing. For comparison, a Qt-version is also available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/warzone … p/download. Put the expanded warzone2100qt.exe into your Warzone folder and run it instead of the normal one. On Linux, run "./configure –with-backend=qt", then compile and run as usual. The lobby login support is gone again for now, since unfortunately nobody had time to fix some outstanding issues.

Also, thanks to Emdek who played through it and tested fixes, the campaign should be completable now. And there is support for stored templates, where you can save a unit design, and it’ll appear in your build menu automatically once all required research is done.

Bug Reports:
This release probably contains bugs, please report them so they can be fixed. If you have trouble getting the game to work at all, consider a forum thread, you will probably get help faster that way.

See BugReporting for details, in short:

  • Search the existing tickets for your problem, if the problem has already been fixed in git, 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 (one per issue).
  • 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 (or the other way around, the harder it is for us to reproduce a problem, the less likely it is to get fixed), so include savegames/instructions to reproduce the bug, crashdumps, backtraces, screenshots for graphical problems… whatever is relevant.
  • 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).
