June 27th, 2007Build 19 ReleasedThis is primarily a bug fix release to resolve some of the issues with the global login system. It also simplifies the login interface a little. By popular demand (or more accurately, popular complaint), I also included some Quake2 style crosshairs. Crosshairs 11-13 are made to look like Quake2's crosshairs 1-3. These were created from scratch to avoid any copyright issues (the reason I removed them in the first place).
Here's a complete listing of what has changed: - Bugfix: Fixed incorrect password error when password is correct after using remember password or changing password. 5:58 PM 6/4/2007 - Bugfix: Fixed crash with invalid rscript files. 5:43 PM 6/5/2007 - Bugfix: Fixed crash on error resulting in shutdown or failure to load game module. - Tweak: Cached DNS for communicating with login server to remove lag spikes. - Tweak: Simplified profile/login menus. 2:37 AM 5/31/2007 - Media: Added crosshair 11-13 which look similar to crosshair 1-3 in Quake 2. 3:36 AM 6/5/2007 - Media: Fixed bug in soccer1.bsp where players could get launched out of the map with "pong_nokill" enabled. 3:23 AM 6/6/2007
Visit the files page to download it. Global Login Database Goes LiveThe core features have been implemented. Testing is done. The critical bugs have been fixed. This is the real deal now, hopefully. If you registered an account before June 27th, 2007 8:00PM EST, you need to register a new account. Only one account is allowed per person. I will be enforcing this now. June 4th, 2007Slight DelayI should never say when to expect a release. I know better than that. I was planning to have a new version out by now, but I decided it would be better to spend more time on the login interface, since some people seem to be confused by it. There were some things that weren't as intuitive as they should be, since I was originally planning on making account registration in-game and I kind of rushed build 17 and 18 out since I just wanted to be done with them. It also took longer than planned to add and test some of the administration functionality of the global login system. It shouldn't be too much longer before a new release comes out, so stay tuned.
