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:

(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.


I am proud to present you:


Important page updates:

Love, Wuzzy.


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