After a *long* wait, the next GAV release is out, available also as binary package from http://gav.sf.net
Version 0.9.0 includes several new features, including better network game handling, preference saving, joystick support, to name a few. As usual, check CHANGELOG for a more comprehensive list.
Thanks to Tim Douglas (the GAV official package mantainer for MacOSX) GAV version for Mac OS X is ready for donwload!
...yes, it's been a long time, but it's out! This new version:
- fixes some bugs concerning the net
- improves speed a bit (although further improvements should be on the way)
- officially adds sounds
- revised collision mechanism (still not definitive, though)
- improves the AI player
- bears some source code redesign
This release adds versatility in the construction of themes (Check out the sample 'naive' theme), and introduces a workaround for the "ball-stuck-over-the-net" bug.
GAV (Gpl Arcade Volleyball) is an object-oriented multiplatform Arcade Volleyball clone. It supports multiplayer and theme customization. With this release, ball speed is selectable and a number of bugs have been fixed.
Thanks to Ari Pollak and David Grant's efforts GAV has been
accepted for the Debian 'unstable' branch!
GAV 0.7.1 is mainly a bugfix release, addressing
several issues with version 0.7.0. Changes regard
mainly collisions and AI behavior in multiplayer mode.
GAV was compiled and tested on the BeOS platform! Go to the download page!
GAV was added to the Free Software Fondation's Directory of Free Software (http://www.gnu.org/directory/games/GAV.html).
Thank you Janet!
This new version should be a real treat... It allows to play over the network, it fixes some (though not all) the bugs in the previous version, and adds several options to personalize the game and/or the look.
Happy playing! Your feedback is welcome.
Thanks to the large positive feedback we've had, we have found the time to work a little further on GAV... the CVS already contains severai improvements, while a new version is scheduled to be released very soon. Lots of improvements, some surprise, and a bunch of themes that will be uploaded to gav.sf.net. Hold on to your breath!
This new version features keys redefinition (finally), theme selection via menu, cooperative multiplayer game, and a little more.
GAV was cross-compiled on the Linux platform to generate the windows executable!
The minor changes were included in the version 0.5.1b.
First GAV (Gpl Arcade Volleyball) version has been released!
We need your help to improve it. Try it!
