I was going to record a video for these people, to show them that not only is the Rope useful, but it's the most powerful weapon in the game.
Thankfully however, ♫ DJ. LisT ♫ has done this for me
Congrats on your skillz guys, I might have to take you on some day.
Expect more challenging shoppa maps soon :)
well folks, 0.9.12 is finally here.
Grab it on our downloads page here
This release doesn't include everything we had planned, and some noteable things are missing. But we decided to push forwards the release due to Hedgewars being included on a coverdisk on a big computer magazine.
That said, there is an awful lot new in 0.9.12, I won't list everything, (you can always review SVN activity for a complete changelog) but the main features are as follows.
+ Control pad support
+ New weapons: flying saucer, molotov cocktail
+ More sounds
+ New visual effects
+ Updated graphics
+ Team chat
+ Remember net password
+ More training modes, including a fun RC plane game
+ Implement room control delegation when host's connection fails
+ Colorize chat events in engine
+ Frontend improvements
+ New maps
+ New theme
+ and more :)
+Zoom - This is one of the biggest features in the new release, you can now dynamically zoom in and out of the battlefield using (by default) the mousewheel.
If you have any teams from previous versions of the game you may need to update their controls to apply zoom settings.
Middle mouse resets your zoom by default.
* Fix crash in replay caused by speechbubbles
* Fix some desync causes
* Fix rope bugs
* Fix bugs in weapon selection code
