FINALLY! Hedgewars 0.9.14.1 is here!

0.9.14.1 released. All users of 0.9.14 please upgrade

The following were dropped from 0.9.14 in the 0.9.14.1 bugfix release to due bugs/user complaints. They may reappear in future releases.
  • Clicking on preview while on a map now switches to random terrain again. This fixes a desync.
  • The linking of scheme/ammo checkbox has been removed. This fixes a desync.
  • Weapon offsets were removed. Weapons now start from centre of hedgehog as in 0.9.13 again.
  • Random mines are back to 0 to 3 seconds.
  • Resurrector now resurrects multiple graves again.
  • Place hedgehogs mode starts with teleport. King mode still requires selecting teleport or skip turn.
I'm honored and happy to announce that the new version (0.9.14) of Hedgewars is now available for download in the Download section! :D
(It's possible that not all versions for all supported operating systems are available for download yet, so be patient!)

::Highlights::

New devastating weapons!

Show no mercy and let your hedgehog army fry, smash, poison and destroy your enemies like never before!
Not only will the Flamethrower, Hammer, Sticky Mines and Old Limburger take your sadism to a new level, they will also let you forge new strategies for giving your challenger a hard time.
And if you are willing to sacrifice a hog for a good cause then you'll truly enjoy to wreak havoc behind enemy lines using the Piano Strike!

New powerful utilities!

You are lazy AND smart? You'll love the Portal Gun! Move yourself, hogs and things from A to B etc. and back! Be daring, be creative, be nasty! :D
Also don't mourn your fallen hogs too much, because now you get a chance to bring them back to life using the Resurrector! Take care not to revive hogs that you want to stay dead though!

New Maps and Themes

Nowhere to run to, no place to hide!
Fight your enemies in the jungle, at construction sites, on stage and even in the minds of artists!

Improved interface and Lobby

We don't only want you to have fun during the game, but also on the way getting there!
The new lobby should now do a better job of helping you to find the game you're looking for!

Improved Lua Scripting Support

New chances to have your visions become brutal reality and fun for the community!

And there is more!

Prettier fire and effects!
Projectiles being fired from the weapons' actual barrels!
More hats and new Forts!
Better stats!
Tweaked weapon and utility behaviours!

Still not enough?!

Then go check out to http://code.google.com/p/hedgewars/source/browse/ChangeLog.txt to see a more complete list of the additions and changes!


Well, that's about it, have fun kicking some serious butt guys!

Known issues:

Especially the development of the portal gun has proven tricky, so be prepared for (hopefully) funny glitches :P

Those will be hopefully removed in 0.9.15, which I promise* won't be such a long wait again!
If you find an issue that's not listed on http://code.google.com/p/hedgewars/issues/list , please submit it there!



*no, not really :-P

Nice, please keep up the awesome work.

Awesome!

How thinking with portals scheme should work? Because you cant move or jump so how you move?

You use the portal device, place one portal where you want to land and then aim to the ground below you while you jump and shoot at the ground.

Be careful thought Wink Smiley

YAY!!

ermmm... did you delete the downloadlink?

The download link for 0.9.14 was removed since 0.9.14.1 will be out soon.

Yes! 9.14(.1) is awesome! I love the flamethrower and Piano strike and my brother loves the sinegun. Awesome work everyone!

WTF ?? why did the new weapon offsets get removed ?? Bugs or user complaints ?

both
some things to fix. should be back.

WOW, such a good release. I was playing this loads yesterday!! THE SINEGUN IS EPIC!!!!!!

great work guys, and a nice quick bug fix update too.

I found two bugs: one is that i get out of game to lobby in the middle of game, didnt had it in .13,
the other one is that sometimes my right mousekey doesnt work, i have to go to windows desktop and klick on hwengine again, then it works... this bug was in .13, too...

But great release anyway!!!!

Thomas, exiting the game while playing sounds like a crash.

The next time it happens, please send game0.log for both you and the other player. It should be under Hedgewars/Logs. I think in My Documents or somesuch in Windows. Try a search. ~/.hedgewars/Logs under linux.

Also, very important. Make sure you are on 0.9.14.1 now, NOT 0.9.14 - 0.9.14 does have a problem that could cause that.

ok, uploaded log to demos!
I have only one of server(my)-computer...

Thomas. If you played any games since the crash, the log is useless. Also without theirs it is a lot less useful even then.

Also. Were you on 0.9.14 when the crash happened instead of 0.9.14.1?

Awesome work!!!! Congratulations! This is the best version ever (of Hedgewars)!
I love using Piano Strike and try to play it with F keys, and I also love Sine Gun, it's so strong and (un)predictable!
Why don't you remove the "(beta)" and you consider this great weapon as definitive? Big Grin

-ChipHome

Here is a patch how you can disable "annoying" ropes sounds in Hedgewars 0.9.14.1

Download soundpack here: http://www.speedyshare.com/files/25209490/Sounds.zip

and unzip these files to \Hedgewars 0.9.14.1\share\hedgewars\Data\Sounds folder. Remember to replace old files.

Well, actually it's not even beta, it's alpha.
I do intend to rewrite and complete the weapon and to add graphics and sound though - hopefully before .15 will be released ^_^

the log i uploaded was the last game (the one that crashed) i had 0.9.14.1 installed. It happened after 20 rounds. Next time i try to get the other guy to download his logfile, too.

this new version is very professional, and play is beautiful, tnx

super la nueva version eaea!! =) los espero con el piano loko amigos latinos y los de españa.. acordandome de castell y lalo amoedo espero gane uno de ustds

Well, everybody had already said everything, so i may only repeat after them: very good release, thanks to new features I will be now playing HW for hours. Good job!

I don't know if you are the person who just signed onto IRC today, reporting a crash when weapon switching, but it does seem to be locale specific (and so far only under Windows). Crash seems to happen when switching back and forth from Bazooka.

Try doing this switching (hit F1 a few times to scroll through weapons, maybe F2 then F1).
If it crashes again, try switching to English, saving and restarting, and trying again.

very professional and amazing game this time around. great job, again, guys! my kids love the piano weapon. i love the updates to the rope and the new sticky mines.

I love it on Linux, but I have an older Mac and need to grab the 32-bit universal version. The torrent is very poorly seeded -- right now there are 0 seeds and 2 leeches. Any chance you would be willing to host the universal Mac dmg on hedgewars.org?

Please release Debian testing package. Can't wait!

It took a while, but I got the universal binary for hw 0.9.14.1 via the torrent provided in the downloads page. I'm hosting a copy of the dmg file until the next release, or until I forget to pay my hosting bill, whichever comes first Geek

Bandwidth shouldn't be a problem, anyone with a PowerPC Mac or who is still running Tiger or Leopard feel free to grab Hedgewars 0.9.14.1 Universal here

Clive, a debian package has already been made. It is linked on the downloads page.
