Post news RSS Warzone 2100 new releases

Late news but there are several new version of warzone 2100 that has come out since the last news post. Also online is flourishing, as I post this there are 8 servers online. We have anti-cheat checks now to keep things fair.

Posted by on

The developer staff brings you the release of Warzone 2100 2.2.4.

This release is network incompatible with previous versions. (You cannot play multiplayer games with previous versions of Warzone.)

We squashed some more bugs, some balance changes, and other numerous things.

For a complete list see the Changelog.

As always: Please report all bugs, without them, we can't fix them!
Since there is some confusion on how to handle bug reports, I have decided to post the bug reporting guidelines here:

Bug Reporting
are different kinds of errors and glitches that sometimes can even lead
to crashes. Due to the limited resources of the Warzone 2100 Project
not everything can be tested prior to release. In order to be able to
fix those bugs we need you to report those bugs. For the bug reports to
be the most helpful we put up this page as a guide to writing good bug

How to report bugs

  • Use the search to find out, if your bug has not been reported yet.
  • If you did find it there and you have more information than was provided by the original reporter, add your information.
  • If you did not find it, submit a new bug report
  • Write
    something meaningful into the summary. Not just "I found a bug", but
    instead write "Crash when building units" (for example).
  • Give a very detailed description of the bug and how to reproduce it. This is the most important information!
  • If you are using the trunk version from Subversion, be sure to add the used revision, too.
  • If you are using a version from a package repository, be sure to add information on the package.
  • State
    which operating system and version of it you are running. This includes
    the service pack under Windows and the distribution on Linux.
  • Information about the game options you chose and the drivers (video/audio) you use and your hardware is very useful to us.
  • Additionally
    you could provide backtraces, logfiles, screenshots and other
    additional information you can get as an attachment. (Backtraces in
    pastebins ("nopaste") or on upload sites are NOT useful.)
  • Savegames that can reproduce the issue are very much welcomed! Package the savegamename.gam, savegamename.es (if exists), and everything in the savegamename folder as well in a zip file.
  • If
    you can, please attach the crash mini dump file to your bug report. If
    you are using an executable you compiled yourself, please attach the
    executable as well, so that the developers can use it to extract
    information from the dump file.
  • On Windows, you can find stderr.txt & warzone2100.RPT (crash dump file) in the same directory as warzone2100.exe is in.
  • On Linux, you can find the crash dump in /tmp.

Now that you know all this, use Developer.wz2100.net to create a bug report!
