Pump it up

Have a low spec machine?
A laptop with crappy on board graphics?
An intel card that's turning the entire terrain white?

There's hope!

unC0Rr and Nemo have been working hard to make Hedgewars more accessible to everyone in 0.9.10.  unC0Rr has rewritten the way land is generated to increase speed and hopefully fix that annoying bug with intel cards that renders the entire terrain white (if anyone with that problem would like to test this, let us know).

Meanwhile Nemo has been working on graphics options that will allow you to turn off various graphics options to trade graphics for speed. We've seen an increase from 280fps to 460fps on a high spec machine, running on low graphics settings. Whilst Nemos old laptop that was pretty much incapable of playing Hedgewars at any resolution now gets a solid FPS at reasonable res.

Site updates

There have been a few minor site updates recently.
The best thing to do is probably clear your cache and reload the page, the easiest way to do this in most browsers is to hold ctrl and hit f5 to refresh.

  • You'll see new quick link buttons on the main page
  • You can now send PMs in the forums
  • Decorative Hedgehogs will be sitting on the top right of the site (these change each time you refresh)
  • The site now uses shadowbox to display large images, check out the tournament button on the main page
  • FAQ updated
  • Live chat that takes you to our IRC channel, no java or flash required
  • Various other small updates

I'll continue working on this

So I was thinking, besides an in game hat to call their own,
what else could we give the victor of the current tournament..

Then I thought.

What about a Tshirt!

What do you think?
Should I do it?

Round 1, FIGHT!

To celebrate the launch of Street Fighter IV, some new challengers have appeared in 0.9.10

Disclaimer:  These aren't finished, we know Blanka has no eyes yet, and yes we'll have Guile. These are just a small number of the new hats in 0.9.10

Tournament Update Number 3

Hello everyone,

Registration is closed

Read below if you're taking part, it's important.

I want to point those of you that have already entered to the forum page, where you will find a brand new forum that only tournament members have access too.

I want you to go to this forum and share your contact details so other tournament players can contact you and arrange a game. This forum is hidden so spam etc shouldn't be a concern.

If anyone who has entered the tournament can not access this forum please let me know.

The tournament will begin on Saturday the 14th of February, the first round will run through the next week until friday the 20th of February.  A ladder will be up on the website soon to show who is playing who in the first round, then you can begin to make your arrangement for satruday-friday using the forums. When doing this, remember not everyone is from the same time zone, so make sure both parties are clear on the time.
