In order to provide the best experience to newcomers on release, there are things you can do.
If you're a game server owner
You can download the 0.52.0 universal zip (shhhht ) there: unvanquished_0.52.0.zip and update your server to be ready for Friday !
You can find server configuration template there: Unvanquished/dist/configs.
Make sure to add 0.52 string in server name to make it obvious! For example, by adding this at the end of your server name:
Code: Select all
Note: if you host custom dpks, you must put a PAKSERVER file containing the ALLOW_UNRESTRICTED_DOWNLOAD string on your web server folder, like this one.
If you own a web server
You can be part of the Unvanquished CDN!
Our Updater distribute the game using the Bittorrent protocol and support web seeds, web seeds are web servers that contribute to the bittorrent swarm, meaning there is always a seed when there is no peer, and thanks to bittorrent, players would download the game from multiple http servers at a time…
If you want to be part of the Unvanquished CDN, send me an e-mail to my nickname at unvanquished.net.
If you have a bittorrent application
You can download this torrent and seed it: unvanquished_0.52.0.torrent.
Spread the word, tell your friends, be ready !
