Assault Cube Portable 0.9.3 Development Test 2 (Testers Needed)

This is Simeon's Project and Work

I am only posting this here as I had to upload it for him, and I didn't think adding a link to the new release in the old topic would be very efficient.

Description

Assault Cube is a free first-person shooter game based off of the game 'Cube'. The graphics are fantastic and the game is tons of good fun.

This latest Portable release comes with some minor fixes, as well as the ability to run Windowed or Full Screen. Please select and option and let me know if you automatically get that same option used next time, or if you run into problems.

Thank you, please test it out and enjoy.

Download Assault Cube Portable 0.9.3 Development Test 2

Thank you again.

Downloading

right now... but testing later 'cause I have a date in few minutes... Wink

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Tested

I tried this new release on Windows Vista Home Premium and I have to say that it was more difficult to make it run than the first release... this version is more unstable, I can't say why... I even had to use ctrl+alt+del to kill it the first time I run it, the second time it worked ok...

hmmm

weird.
The only things I changed were the "run windowed" thing and some nsis-variables. None of them should affect the actual game.

tested

on my two PCs and in my friend's PCs, it works very good (except on my Vista PC).

Moreover, the installed folder is copied in my friends computer since they want to keep it, so... for your downloading stats, add another 25 computers... one of the guys took it and copied on their University's PCs, to play in LAN... Wink

I'm sorry for this delay, I totally forgot to report... shame on me... Sad

I am glad it works.
Maybe I'll have a vista machine for testing later this week.
And unfortunately, I dint have downloading stats, but maybe my hoster (thanks you Patrick) has...?

EDIT
Did you test DevTest 1 or 2?

Maybe he means hitting maximize on the windowed version, I've seen that cause problems in games before.

Great!

This works fine, on three different PCs running windows home

only one reccuring problem:

there is no way to move the window when running in windowed mode
which therefore means you can't see your health and ammo counts (if you have them, i cant move the window to check)

overall good though
runs proficiantly on a 1.6ghz single core processor

I think it's do with the way the program reacts to mouse movements

also if you use windows + D keys and then try to move the window, you get it stuck at the bottom

i had to re-install it

portable version?
There is a ini file in the /Data/ folder. If you delete it it will ask you again if you want to run it windowed or full screen.

few slight hitches

dunno if these are just a problem in the whole program, or in the portable only, but you cant load custom maps

:S

or any custom things

you've gotta replace things instead

Don't worry about it

It's actually in the standard version of 0.93 as well,
should be fixed in 0.94

in the meantime you can load maps by pressing the usual console key (tilde) and typing in:

Map [name of the map you want to load]

(as soon as you type in "map" it comes up with a tooltip explaining it all in greater detail)

and i'm also working on re-skinning the models, just in case anyone is interested

Windowed

Noticed a few people complaining about its windowed capabilities. Any of you considered trying DxWnd? Haven't tried it myself because I preferred the full screen mode when I tried it. Maybe check into that.

I just googled it and there are several places you can download it from. Some seem kinda weird though. I read it is a program that forced other programs to run windowed but I didn't try it.

but I got a mail by one of the devs (the lead-Artist actually) and he said its ok. So I guess its ok. I also wrote a mail to John cause he asked and wanted to know more after having read tis thread but I never got a response.

Hmm, why would we go out and ask permission for open source software to make a portable version!?!

anyway, I think this would be cool as official app, but there are MANY cool apps waiting for a release somehow. Maybe we should find a way to publish complete releases somewhere (not as alpha/beta quality) with an alternative splash screen and when PortableApps finally catches up John can just pick the apps and slap an PortableApps splash on them.

This way all the beta apps can be pulled out of limbo and the masses can start enjoying a bunch of 'new' apps.

I know

that the window-mode is buggy.
You cant really change the location of the window for example... but thats why it asks on first run. Maybe I will have it dosplay a warning in the "do you want it to be windowed?"-window and recommend & preselect the "no". Thoughts?

Tried and worked well on XP SP3

Still can't help but suggest that sauerbraten or "Cube 2" would be a better choice to port. Please don't take this as anything other than constructive as I do very much appreciate the game.

well i thought the licensing issues were just that you needed permission which you got, so it should be fine right? also AssaultCube is the perfect match for PA since it looks good and is only 19MB! sauerbraten is a few hundered MB

should be okay

well i don't think that stuff matters in this instance. the reason we have to mess with little licensing issues like that are because Sourceforge is for only open source, but Assault Cube is already hosted on Sourceforge, so everything in their package is okay for us to host on Sourceforge.

makes sense. I thought about that too and thought "what if they are wrong?" but we don't have to be more Catholic than the Pope, do we? Smile
So if they get a problem with Sourceforge, we will have the same problem but we can deal with it THEN.

Next time I see John on IRC, Ill ask him about releasing this, ok?

But if everything goes according to plan, I'll recheck the package and we'll have a Prerelease next monday.
