That would cause an error. I think you need to write weaponType=="Shield"

I guess it means in weapondefs, where = is correct.

Ok this is probably noob question and I m curious, but nobody bothers to answer it.

Why static linux version uses such high libc version? (GLIBC_2.15)
I m running debian testing(and debian stable probably has even lower version) and it has 2.13, so I have to compile spring just as usual. Wasnt it supposed to be unzip and go?

I mean real rolling release distros will have new spring packaged and ready much faster than rock stable like debian anyway. And it would be good idea to use a bit older version?

Actually it is _only_ debian with an ancient glibc. Ubuntu and Fedora (and ofc all rolling distros), have glibc >= 2.15.

But I guess it doesn't hurt using an older version... just like with windows builds that must support XP... :mrgreen:

Java AI interface and NullOOJavaAI went missing in the build, but should be fixed now: http://springrts.com/mantis/view.php?id=3469
Thanks ^_^

Tested it, seems to work, whee :)
Small issue, but it might be from before 0.92:

Under XP : unable to sea the UI in game. Nothing displayed. I can select the com and move it but even the selection box is not there.

I use Debian Testing, which is a rolling release. As is Debian Unstable. They both have 2.13. Experimental has 2.17. Fedora got 2.15 in the last quarter of last year.
