0.9.10 Released!

It's here folks, our biggest ever hedgewars update

You can download it  HERE

The changelog is huge, and I'll be working on putting it up on the site soon, but I didn't want to delay the release any further, so I'll just mention the main points for now.

Changelog
  • Many many more terrain generation options, maps can be huge, very small, caverns, caves, stepping stones.. you name it.

  • To accompany these new terrain generation options there are new themes and musical tracks

  • On top of this there are a ton of brand new preset maps, have your hogs fight on city scapes and lazy old men in hammocks!

  • Lots of new hats (total of 79 now!) and to add to the hats, some new voice work

  • A new type of weapon called a utility has been added, these weapons drop in utiltiy crates and boost your hedgehogs abilities, low gravity, laser sight, extra time, extra damage, forcefield

  • Alongside weaponsets we now have "scheme sets", this means you can save gameplay options into a scheme for later use. We've also added a whole load more options for you to use in your schemes, you can add borders to any map, disable mines, enable low gravity, make all hogs invincible, and more.

  • The server has been given a major upgrade, you can now reserve your name with your hedgewars.org account. At the moment there are no stats in game, but we may already begin tracking them to display them later, so remember to log in! We are also integrating the game with the website.

  • A new Despeckling gameplay feature removes stray pixels from the terrain after fires/big explosions

  • Graphics updates, language updates, music and sound updates across the board

  • Demos can now be played without the frontend

  • Weapons and hogs can now bounce off of the water if they hit it at the right speed/angle.. this can be used in a very interesting way with the rope ;)

  • Hedgewars can now generate your team for you if you're feeling lazy, it also generates random teams for "quick play" mode, and even uses appropriate hats. I.e. it will generate a ninja team, with ninja names/hats!

  • The game now officially works on windows, linux and mac!

  • Changed girder functionality completely to make it a much more interesting and fun weapon!

  • lots more

How can I?

Heh, I kinda missed that. Guess I'll check it out in aprox. 10 minutes.

Really nice version, but yesterday the game went very slow. Was this on server, or is it my graphic card? 0.9.9 went better...

But the new maps and weapons are very cool... Smile

This version of the game is also running very slow (5fps) for me Sad Smiley
0.9.9 ran fine but 0.9.10 is almost unplayable in both single player and online play.

My graphics card is an integrated Intel one, which may be the reason it's being slow.
