This released introduced couple of new features:
first major feature is completely isolated worlds with its own checkpoints, hints and spawn points.
(new 'Aqua World' map contains underwater and rooftops levels with dozen of teleports)
Multiplayer is more smoother now because of interpolation feature.
Also a lot of various bugs fixed improving general stability and several hot keys to menu were added.
Finally we've got brand new user interface -- rewritten from scratch.
Nice, clean and simple menus, vehicle and player pickers with or without AI. (yeah, we included beta AI players in this release!). In-game statistics are now available by hitting the TAB key.
Also, most maps now have animated water! :)
For Linux folks we started releasing source tar balls among the win32 binary releases.
key features of this release:
extra large 'Baykonur' map with old-school big-boss. Dozens of troopers around: in watchtowers, cannons, tents and barracks. (even a patrol boat!)
cooperative mode for multiplayer with checkpoints support for saving map progress.
improved AI logic for troopers.
massive engine optimizations for the best performance. look Changelog file in distribution for details.
(almost forgot!) Game engine was developed under Linux and could be easily compiled on the most distributions.
Look http://sourceforge.net/softwaremap/trove_list.php?form_cat=288 for details.
We are focused on performance and bug fixes in this release. But there are still few known bugs around (and infinite of unknown ;)
check out for a few nice features too ;)
The latest X-mas release.
At last! We've added some pickers to the main menu, and you no longer have to edit configs and restart the game each time you decided to get another vehicle or change the map. As always, lots of bugfixes, also we have added some minor features and a brand new map called 'Wastes'.
We plan to concentrate on AI now, so you have some time for playing the latest version - no news are coming for a couple of weeks or even more.
the key features of this release are:
cool old-school blinking invulnerability effect.
destructible map. among the objects, now it is possible to damage and/or destroy buildings.
and if your vehicle was destroyed, you are still able to act personally as machine gunner. for a few seconds.. :)))
