Post news RSS Warsow 0.4 released

Finally! After 8 months of non-stop coding, mapping, modelling, drawing, fighting, balancing and analyzing, the Warsow team has finally reached yet another milestone in its development cycle! I am very proud to announce the next major release of Warsow: version 0.4!

Posted by on

Let's get right at it, what will 0.4 bring? A small summary of some of the major changes (for a detailed overview, check out the changelog):


  • broadcast matches in-game to a large amount of viewers
  • Full multipov streaming
  • Added small minimaps for watchers


  • New advanced renderer features (bumpmapping, specularmapping, shadowmapping)
  • Optimizations! Increased performance over 0.3
  • Outlines now handled by engine, ability to switch on or off
  • Profiles: ability to quickly use some predefined graphic settings


  • Replaced old wdm2 by TdM's/bLx' Chromo Dynamic
  • Replaced old wdm11 by Grumx' Rage
  • New TDM maps by Daze: wdm8 - Baxandall and wdm19 - Format

  • New Weapon model: Instagun
  • New Player model: Bobot


  • Tweaked iTDM (domination style gametype)
  • New CTF rules
  • Added Duel Arena (1v1 ClanArena)


  • Advanced movement (bunny hopping, dashing and wall jumping)
  • Ability to time items
  • More natural behaviour

Tweaked movement system

  • Added forward bunny hopping
  • Increased gravity, compensated by higher jump strength

Tweaked weapon settings

  • Gunblade: Regenerates ammo, instant fire, added splash damage (trickable!)
  • Riotgun: Spiral pattern, increased damage slightly
  • Rocket launcher: More splash damage, more self damage, decreased projectile speed (1000 up/s)
  • Grenade launcher: Strong grenade explodes on contact, tweaked projectile trajectory


  • Included basic movement demo-tutorials
  • With subtitles, voice-over and recams to explain basic movement and bunny hopping

Windows, linux and Mac compatible

  • However in beta state, Warsow 0.4 is the first release to run on OSX :D
  • Windows in both .zip and installer

This is a selection out of some of the bigger changes from the changelog. There's much more to explore, so I suggest you go on and download your 0.4 flavour of choice (as usual, only a full release and no update available as there were too many media changes), right after these thanks:

Thanks to everyone who put effort into this release, thanks to all the coders, mappers, testers and team members for dedicating their free-time in making this release possible! Thanks community for all the feedback in forums and devblog throughout the development process. Thanks to everyone who supports Warsow!
