So, you wanted a progress report and here it is.

- 0.9.10 will run on a new central server, this server will allow you to register a name and an account (or login with your existing hedgewars.org name) meaning we can begin to award rank, track stats, and award in game prizes for good performance.

-We're introducing something called game modifiers. you can see a screenshot of these here
These will modify the game in some way, most of them are self explanatory. They can be saved like weapon sets, and the framework allows us to very easily add new modifiers.

-Utility crates, these are a new kind of crate drop that contains "utilities", these are activated like weapons, and currently includes low grav, laser sight, extra time, 1.5x damage, forcefield. Screenshot of crate here

-Girders reworked. I didn't like how girders were playing out, people tended to use them to block others in, or to hide and prolonge the game. So they've been modified. Now you can lay as many girders as you have ammo, during one turn and the girders don't end your turn! However, you can only use a girder a short distance from your Hedgehog.  This means that girders will now work as a mobility weapon, allowing hogs to get into better positions to make a shot, or to bounce shots off of a nicely placed girder.

-New themes, there is now a halloween, cheese and castle theme. As well as updates to the old themes. Screenshot of castle theme here

-New maps, lots of new maps in this version. Here's a couple of screenshots, here and here

-Lots of frontend modifications to make it prettier/more usable

-The engine can now load demos without loading the frontend, meaning demos can be loaded easily with file association. Soon you'll be able to just download and run demo files from the website to view games.

-New hats, lots and lots of new hats, including a complete street fighter team, woo! Screenshot here

-New terrain options. Now you can select from a number of different terrain generation options, enabling you to generate all types of terrain in different sizes, large maps support many more hedgehogs than previous versions

-A whole load of other stuff, tweaks, fixes, other features.. but I've listed enough for now.


Almost all technical parts of 0.9.10 are complete, we have a few tweaks here and there to finish, and then it's release time. We're very close.


Weeeee! Finally, I can't wait! Big Grin

sounds great Wink Smiley

5 hedgewars Gamer from Germany waiting ^^

You are exelent.

Shocking Smile Big Grin GREAT! One BG-fan counts every second! Clown!

Sweet. Can't wait.

Great. Will it be compiled for Mac users, too?

yes indeed

btw Glad that you finally decided to make the range of using the girders shorter. It was weird that you can place a grider on the end of the map when you're on the other. Smile

So wait, what if you have infinity girders?

don't make an infinite girder wep pack.
but time is still finite.
and their choices are boxing themselves in or slowly moving across screen.

As nemo said(wrote):
Time is still finite. Yes, your turn doesn't end when you put a girder, BUT time keeps flying Wink Smiley So even if you have an infinite number of griders, you'll be able to do this only then, when you have infinite time for a turn and since the second thing is impossible, so is the first. Wink Smiley Correct me if I'm wrong. Smile Griders are like the rope - it doesn't end your tunr when you use it, but you still have to take a look at the timer. Smile

A lot of nice changes. Very nice. Smile

Will it be more stable? I didn't have much problems on Linux, but my friends on Windows did. What is the state of Mac OS port?

Everything aside, good job guys! Wink Smiley

Whut kind of problems are you talking about? Smile Intel-problems maybe Wink Smiley Because by me (WinXP Pro SP3) it's never crashed. Not once. Omho that's pretty stable. Big Grin

Qt frontend problems. Smile Like not going fullscreen on Win XP. Actually it goes but the game is not usuable. The screen gets blank.

Well, I guess that's because you use Bulgarian XP Pro version. :P Stable as palm trees in Varna. Big Grin

Actually Qt resize problem and SDL screen blanking problem. Tested configuration: Amd Athlon with Barthon core 32bit, 1Gb RAM, Nvidia 7300, Windows XP Pro SP2.

Big Grin:D:D Have you ever tried to use sh*t like that?! Big Grin
Palm trees in Varna... Shocking Now look what...Palm trees have so much to do with Varna, as pinguins with Sahara Big Grin

Using English version of course (as most of my software). And besides - the language version has nothing to do with Qt. Windows is Windows (is crap Big Grin).

PS: What the hell is going on with the emoticons?!!
Example:

Big Grin :D Big Grin :D Big Grin :D

Shocking I'm so confused.

Let's get a bit serious. Don't know why that was happening, but if I get chance to try it again on Win or Mac, I'll post report at appropriate subforum. Wink Smiley

In the dev. version (0.9.10). Wink Smiley

äh are you nutz ?

my question is where is dalshim and zangief by the new headgers in streetfighter look

Deleted from me Smile

There are no Zangief or Dhalsim hats currently, as there is already 8 street fighter hats and that makes up a whole team, however, if you want a zangief or dhalsim hat you can always petition palwolf to do it Smile

Brain Slug Mouth! This is the best new hat. Brain Slug!

Looking forward to it very much, are we able to turn off sudden death in the new version?? looking forward to not having problems with rope and pixels...

Viking2323, pixel field is in the past. Wink Smiley Neatly removed in 0.9.10. About rope - there's no problem with it. :P
