Hi, if you know how to clone a repository and to build it, you can help us by testing the next version of Unvanquished. :grin:

You can fetch the sources, build the game and join a testing server that way:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/Unvanquished/Unvanquished.git
cd Unvanquished
git fetch origin for-0.51.0
git checkout for-0.51.0
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4
./daemon -pakpath ../pkg -set vm.cgame.type 3 +connect gg.illwieckz.net:27967


The last command will run Unvanquished and automatically connect to the testing server, auto-downloading pre-release packages from there. If you hear some repetitive tick sound while downloading packages it's normal: at first your setup is incomplete (that's while the game is downloading things for you) and this annoying sound will disappear once the missing packages will be fetched and loaded. :smile:

If you experience a bug, report it on the related issue tracker, if you don't know where to report it, use the first one:


Some issues are already known like the random crash on map change or some missing textures on thunder map. If you find a bug, have a look on issue trackers above in case if it was already reported or not.

Today (sunday) some of us played around 19:00 UTC and later. We'll do it again. :granger:

Unvanquished 0.51 is coming! :bsuit:

by killing time
It took me 2 hours to auto-download the packages, so make sure to connect early :tongue:

If some submodules are empties (should not if your clone is a fresh one), do that to fetch them:

Code: Select all

git submodule update --init --recursive

Is the testing server gg.illwieckz.net:27967 still active?

Actually I did not download anything from it when testing the 0.51 release

Thanks

Hi @ice00, I just restarted the pre-release server :wink:

It's also possible to get the preview packages this way if you run Linux:

Code: Select all

wget -O- http://gg.illwieckz.net/dl/unvanquished/dev/UnvanquishedAssets.get | xargs wget
