Hello people, the Unvanquished 0.52 release will be published on Friday 14 of May 2021, this Friday. :bsuit:

In order to provide the best experience to newcomers on release, there are things you can do.

If you're a game server owner :granger:

You can download the 0.52.0 universal zip (shhhht :grin:) 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

^20.52^*

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 :dev:

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 :dretch:

You can download this torrent and seed it: unvanquished_0.52.0.torrent.

Anyone :human:

Spread the word, tell your friends, be ready ! :announce:

Have you read our article about the engine? Don't hesitate to share it, there is facebook and twitter links to share/retweet at the bottom! :thumbup:

For information I just replaced the former unvanquished_0.52.0.zip by a new one (same name).

The only difference is that the Linux binaries were rebuilt to address an issue `Ishq just noticed with sound (OpenAL). If you already downloaded it, you may want to redownload it, though the version you would have got is 100% compatible (and is now collector :grin:).

The torrent for 0.52 just got published. If you have a bittorrent software installed on your computer, you can download this torrent and seed it: unvanquished_0.52.0.torrent.
