Atomic Tanks 3.5-r1 Important Bugfixes!

Unfortunately two serious bugs which didn't show up during testing of the 3.5 release showed up afterwards and had to be fixed asap:

1.: Fixed a bug that could cause atanks to crash if a game with players which do not belong to the first 10 set up players chosen is loaded.

2.: A typo made atanks impossible to be compiled on windows platform

Atomic Tanks 3.5 hotfix upload!

I am very sorry to admit that there have bin some serious issues in the current release that needed to be hotfixed.

Please re-download the current archive.

Fixes are:
- Fixed a bug in decor.h that made compiling on windows platform impossible.
- Changed the Makefile(s) so you can now install with:
-> Default linux (bin to /usr/games/bin, data to /usr/share/games/atanks) :
make && make install
-> Linux user, everything stays in the source folder:
make user
-> OSX user, everything stays in the source folder:
make osxuser
-> Windows user, everything stays in the source folder:
make winuser... read more

New Forums

I've been intending to set up a new forum on the site for some time and I've finally got around to it, it's a bit thrown together due to lack of time, but should be better than the sourceforge forums which I have to say haven't got the friendliest interface.

Requirements change

I forgot to mention that this version requires allegro 4.1 due to API changes in allegro.

A new project manager has been found in my stead, please welcome alteest at as the one who will bring your much-asked-for networking to atanks, as well as some other rather splendid-sounding changes.
Also, I've released the alpha code (v1.5a) I'd been working on which most significantly adds an entirely new and friendly way of creating weapons.
The source is in CVS and available as a package for download, but do bear in mind it _is_ alpha quality.... read more
