Happy !?

Post by Hewster » Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:01 am

OK tonight a few of us tested what I hoped to be the final pre-release version of 1.7 ( WildWest GPL v1.705) But...

We had an odd ammo bug, zvis found it.. in like 3 fookin seconds of starting to test.. I though he was kidding, but he was dead right... a real show stopper of a bug.

I was scratching my head, and after a little poking around realised it must be a bug introduced during the merge of the 1.6 code and the new RtCW GPL code base, much much MUCH more involved than I had very dreamed...
Seams Id Software though they would go through nearly every single line of code and change it (I will admit for the better) but that meant trying to merge the heavyishly modded code that is WildWest 1.6, based on the 1.41 RtCW code, was a nightmare.

But good news .. 4 hours later I have tracked down the problem, and ...
...
...

Fixed it..

I AM VERY HAPPY :D

Will create a new installer (probably after some sleeps) and have that ready for a few of us to test tomorrow night.. fingers X no more show stoppers,
and I got a web-site to re-do, and server docs to write etc etc to all be done by 22nd.

Peace,

Hewster

Sounds great Hew! So how do I become one of the few? Remember.. to really idiot-proof your code, you need top notch idiots.
