alpha testing the next release [0.51.0]

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:

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

I'm not sure to understand the question.

In any way, you can join my server (gg.illwieckz.net) that hosts 0.51 plus backports, the easiest way to play things to come (backports ship fixes at this point, not really more).

0.51 was released in December.
