Wuzzy's blog

We're moving closer and closer to the release. It's about time, isn't it?

Also, we kindly ask contributors to help with translations.

Big Grin

We announce Release Candidate 1 for 0.9.23.

Frozen hog!

We ask all translators to send us translations. We promise not to change any strings before the next release (the so-called string freeze).
See Translations for details and/or talk to us in our chatroom.


Release Candidate 1

Here's the first release candidate (=preview) version of what will (hopefully) become version 0.9.23.

Look! A wild change log appeared! It's gigantic!

As always, bug reports are highly appreciated. If you want to help us, please test the major game features and post your findings here here.

For Windows users
Download 0.9.23 Release Candidate 1: Hedgewars-0.9.23-RC1.zip

GNU/Linux users:
As always, see Building on GNU/Linux, which should still apply. But it is strongly recommended to run:

cd ~/hg/hedgewars/trunk;hg pull -u;hg up 54300512e742;cmake .;make install

To make sure you are in sync with the Windows version. Note you need SDL version 2 now.

Call for testing: 2nd alpha release for 0.9.23

Here's the second alpha (=preview) version of what will (hopefully) become version 0.9.23.

This is only an early preview version and subject to change!

Like for the first Alpha, we like to hear feedback, especially about any critical bugs (crashes, game doesn't work, etc.) and if the Downloadable Content works. If you want to help us, please test the major game features and post here if anything is broken.
Thanks for the feedback on the first Alpha! It turned out to be completely broken for most players, especially on Windows.

Aghh Hiding

These bugs (and countless others) should be fixed by now. We hope in the second Alpha you'll be able to actually see the new features.

Call for testing: 1st alpha release for 0.9.23

Greetings, testers! Big Grin

Here's the alpha (=preview) version of what will (hopefully) become version 0.9.23. We might post more test releases in the future.

Download 0.9.23 Windows alpha: Hedgewars-0.9.23-alpha.zip

(See below for info on GNU/Linux.)

This is only an early preview version and subject to change! We want to use it to make sure the Windows version works, if there are any serious bugs left, etc. before we make the actual release.

Things we like to see tested:

  • Whether this alpha works at all Big Grin
  • How to make this alpha crash (hopefully not at all)
  • If you found any game-breaking bug
  • Whether you can start an actual game
  • Whether you can record videos
  • Whether the campaigns work

If you can at least reach the main menu, please use the Feedback button to send us your system information, write “0.9.23 Alpha” in the summary. Use this template for the text and say which of those apply (remove if you don't know):

I can start a game: YES/NO
I can record videos: YES/NO
I can start a campaign: YES/NO
I found a crash: YES/NO

For any crashes or failed attempts to start Hedgewars at all, see Bugs to learn how to send us detailed bug reports. Smile

Of course, we always appreciate feedback on new features. See here for a preliminary change log.

GNU/Linux users:
As always, see Building on GNU/Linux, which should still apply. But it is strongly recommended to run:

cd ~/hg/hedgewars/trunk;hg pull -u;hg up 8cc070640fd1;cmake .;make install

To make sure you are in sync with the Windows Alpha. Note you need SDL version 2 now.

Lots of Love for Hedgewars Wiki

The Hedgewars Wiki was always in a very bad state and there was not much to look at. After a couple of days of hard work, the wiki is now in a much more acceptable state.

Smile

I am proud to present you:

Geek

Important page updates:

Love, Wuzzy.

Heart

PS: If you want to help us with the wiki, talk to us in our chat room.

BehindTheHedge: Way Too Big

In the BehindTheHedge series we provide brief glimpses into what's going on at the development side of the game.

In this episode I talk about a lot of different things. Smile The main theme of this post is polishing and quality assurance. But a lot of it!
