Nexuiz passe en 2.3

nexuiz_001.jpgNexuiz, le FPS gratuit développé par Alientrap vient de passer en version 2.3. Cette version est plutôt impressionnante dans la quantité de bugs qu'elle corrige mais aussi dans ses ajouts qui sont nombreux. Ainsi, l'équipe de développement à ajouté un nouveau mode de jeu baptisé « Key Hunt » et trois nouvelles cartes (ruiner, final_rage et reslimed). Bien évidemment pour un shoot orienté multijoueur, le netcode à été amélioré pour mieux supporter les variations de ping ainsi que le packet loss et une protection contre les tricheurs à été ajoutée par défaut.

La liste -encore longue- des améliorations et optimisations de cette nouvelle version se trouve dans la suite de la nouvelle.

Changes from 2.2.3 to 2.3

special things:

* THIS IS NOT A PATCH DOWNLOAD.. DO NOT OVERWRITE YOUR OLD NEXUIZ DIRECTORY!! Doing that will lead to errors!! Use an other directory!
* Anyone that gets less fps (mostly ATI cards, mostly on Linux or older cards) should try to disable Vertex Buffer Objects in the video menu (or gl_vbo 0) and in case this is still not good enough also try to disable the OpenGL 2.0 Shaders in the same menu (or r_glsl 0)
* For server admins: The wallhack prevention is on by default now but in the old server.cfg example file it was disabled. You have to make sure to use sv_cullentities_trace 1 in your server.cfg or just remove any such line from their server.cfg and restart the server so the new default setting is used. This line was in the old server.cfg so server admins knew about it and could enable it for special servers. But now it creates a problem as this line disables the feature unless its changed. Its best if server admins use the NEW server.cfg example file and redo their settings.
* Also for server admins: The q3mappack we released earlier contained a few errors. Please grab the complete fixed pack here: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/nexuiz/nexmappack_r2.zip or if you already have the old version get the fix for it here: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/nexuiz/zzz-nexmappack_r1_to_r2.pk3
