Returned after a couple years
« on: September 07, 2013, 12:34:42 pm »
It's been a long time since I've come around here, and I doubt anyone will recognize my name, but I'm glad to see that development is not only not dead, but is stronger than when I left. Good on you guys!

I dont know where you left the game, but the new version is cool. From the little I played so far, one must manage better the resources and give more attention to "normal" weapons (like SMG, shotgun, etc) than before. And there are new features, new models, new aliens...its really nice :)

Maybe you want to wait a little more for the complete development of 2.5 version.

I think I left around 2.1
Been playing 2.4 a bit (Pulled an all nighter, haha) And I've noticed a few changes that were being discussed when I left, and I like where it's gone. I have come across a couple crashes and spontaneous, error-less closings that I need to report

Most likely many of these 2.4 bugs have already been fixed - since this version is over an year old. So instead of reporting a bug which have been probably fixed already a long time ago, you should check the nightly build of our 2.5 dev version. :)

You can DL it here:

There's actually an .exe for nightly builds now? It used to be that you had to compile it yourself, which I could never figure out no matter what and how many guides I looked through, haha

Yes, it's a wonderful tool to have - especially so now that 2.5-dev is quite stable for players.

One thing I've noticed right away in 2.5 is that the wsad keys don't move the battlescape camera. Quite irritating. The font can also be hard to read since it's darker and thinner

On a vaguely related note... I took several months off after getting to Dec. in a game, then having the map go entirely green on me.

Having recently returned, all of the UFOs I'm encountering have aliens armed just with plasma weapons. Have Kerrblades been removed?

Being impatient for 2.5, I wonder if  should try the development version?

I see there is an .exe version. Is there one for Ubuntu?

Unfortunately not. You will need to compile the source yourself to get the latest 2.5 versions.
