4. Click 'Add bot...' and chose one of the 'Chicken' options from the AI drop down list to play Chicken Defense, or add a bot such as [http://spring.jobjol.nl/show_file.php?id=890 RAI].
Outdated.

Also please add info how to DIRECTLY download latest TEST version.

This is easy to update. Basically the user needs to download the spring installer, launch SD and join a game.
Also please add info how to DIRECTLY download latest TEST version.
On windows:
  • Download and install tortise svn http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads
  • Create a folder ca.sdd in spring/mods
  • Right click on the folder, do tortise svn checkout on location 'svn://svn.caspring.org/trunk/mods/ca'. (mods/1fac for 1fac)
For poking around inside this is a great solution. For distributing at internet-free lan parties it is less elegant than .sd7 but works fine and if you really want you can zip your own.

In the long run I would like a "compile game version" button in SD that takes the relevant data from the pool and creates a self contained sd7. But this is not vital so it is a long term desire.

Why SVN speed so slow? Only ~15 KB/sec. May be its time to update snapshots folder with some latest releases?

Woohoo! It finally happened!

I wanted to ask you about this (in February, was it?), but you were on vacation/hiatus at the time. Instead, I asked Aegis, who told me to ask Licho, who told me he couldn't change forum titles. :lol:
