Spring 0.75b1 release

Post by Tobi »

Yeah you read it correctly, after a long wait it is finally here: Spring 0.75b1.

You can download the full installer including XTA V 9 Gold and Smoth's new Islands In War map. If you run Spring 0.74b3 there is an the updating installer available too. Source code is available on BerliOS again.

There's an incredible amount of changes including but not limited to LuaRules, LuaCob, many improvements to LuaUI, many bugfixes, etcetera.

There's a seperate changelog for TASClient and the lobby server.

Please thank all people who have contributed to this Spring release:
Kloot, trepan, quantum, SJ, Yeha, malric, AF, Vincent Pelletier, Viktor Muraviev, KDR_11k, M2, yuritch, FLOZi, submarine, semi, det, imbaczek, zizu, Betalord, Auswaschbar, ILMTitan

Also thanks to everyone who helped testing the sort-of-weekly development builds :-) and anyone who contributed time in whichever other way ;-)

Notes:
- If there's lots of disk activity when starting Spring or TASClient.exe after a fresh install, it may be caching your mods and maps. This can take quite a while if you have many maps and mods.
- The installer has been hotfixed some times in the first hour(s) after it was posted. If your installer is corrupt, it may be because it was updated while you downloaded it. Sorry for this, redownloading will fix it.
- The new unit/feature highlight widget requires an image file that
was not packaged along with 0.75b1. You can get a suitable image
file from: http://trepan.bzflag.bz/spring/highlight_strip.png , then move
the image file into your: $SPRING/LuaUI/Images/ directory.

Have fun!

Awesome 8)

Does the update installer include XTA and Islands at War? Probably not I guess. If not, where can I get Islands at War?

I AM ERROR.

Wheeee error:
(Title) TASClient.exe - Unable To Locate Component
(Body) This application has failed to start because python25.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. (End Body)

I assume it's because I once again tried to download the update and not the full installer...

EDIT: The full one worked fine, as far as I can tell...

I just installed this from scratch and now the lobby won't load up, the spash box just freezes and I have to kill the process.

It had to re-cache all my maps and re-generate all the minimaps - maybe that's what it's doing Harbinger? Try moving your maps directory and see if it starts normally then.

Same here, the updating installer is definitely broken.

Thanks Acidd_UK, I deleted the paths and then it cached all the maps and loaded fine.

I have a question, this new ability of transports to carry ships, is that a mod specific thing that has to be implemented in a new version, or will i be able to go into BA54 and start lifting ships out of the water? I can just imaging picking up a capital ship on small supreme battlefield and delivering it to the small lake in the middle of the enemy's base...

Update does not contain them. It would make the update kinda useless after all, since XTA and the maps are the biggest files in the installer. I'll make them available separately shortly.

I believe it's a modside option because people wanted to be able to airlift hovers.

gratz for making this happen.

what's the ETA of a bugfix release? (j/k ^_^ but you, Tobi, said you're off for vacation which means that if some showstopper bug emerges, there's noone to do a head-in-a-paper-bag release.)

I'm pretty sure that's a driver issue, not a spring one.
