Wesnoth 1.11.10 (1.12 beta 1): Development Release

October 12th, 2014

At long last, the first beta for the upcoming 1.12 stable series is here! As the tenth development release in this series, Wesnoth 1.11.10 delivers more features and improvements along with the usual assortment of bug fixes. Check the forum thread with the full announcement and release notes for a brief description of the most notable changes in this version, as well as the plans for version 1.12.0 and the various ways you can help us!
As with previous releases, we also offer two versions of the changelog: a trimmed-down players changelog including only those items considered to be relevant in regular gameplay, and a (relatively) more complete and technical full changelog with more detailed contents.
The source code, Windows, Mac OS X, and OpenPandora packages are already available on the downloads page. You may also find packages for other platforms there as they become available.
Bear in mind that this is a beta version for the next stable series — as such, it is likely to be affected by bugs that you should report so we can fix them before 1.12.0!
You may comment on this release in the forums.

Terminal Overload 0.3 released + support the developer on Patreon

October 11th, 2014

The very innovative and awesome looking (+ fully FOSS) multiplayer FPS Terminal-Overload got a new release today. Edit: 0.31 fix for master server

Charged x-jump on the new ETH5 map (3rd person camera turned on)

One of the new features is a charged jump that lets one take big leaps to reach good sniping spots or evade an enemy etc. Other changes for this release:

- New map: ETH5
- Prettier GUI
- Replace re-jumping with instant & charged x-jump.
- Tweak CAT movement speeds.
- Simplify disc controls.
- ETH mode: Each class only has one type of offensive disc.
- SMG changes: Increase firing rate, decrease damage, shorter range.
- MGL changes: Remove recoil, decrease firing rate, fire only one projectile.
- MG changes: Projectiles are affected by gravity.
- Remove etherboard from class #4 (Minigunner) loadout.
- Remove SG2 from class #2 loadout.
- Improve responsiveness of mouse look while in CAT form.
- New projectile visuals (except discs & grenade).

The new GUI looks like this:

New menu graphics with options window

While it is is quite awesome looking and playable already, it obviously still needs a bit of further development. Since the funds of an earlier crowd-funding drive have been used up, the developer is now looking for other ways to survive. If you like what he is doing, you can head over to his new Patreon page to support him with a monthly payment.

Yes, YOU! Right NOW! ;)

Developer contributions to code and art are of course also welcome.
