What Quake II level would you like to see ported to Q2W next?:

A few new features, and marching towards a release!

There has been a flurry of recent activity in Subversion lately, and I'm really happy to announce that the Windows build has been sorted out after a couple months of compilation issues. So, if you haven't updated lately, please do so and let us know what you think! Click through for a full list of changes.

Recent changes and enhancements:

  • Weapon kick effect when firing all weapons.
  • New particle effects for Hyperblaster and BFG muzzle flashes.
  • New particle and lighting effects for item respawn and pickup events.
  • Tuned lighting effects for all muzzle flashes.
  • Vastly improved server state management, addressing several stability issues.
  • Fixed a couple 13 year old server-side physics bugs held over from Quake2.

Next, we'll be wrapping up the graphical menus and replacing the player models -- at which point we will be ready for a general release!

Enjoy!

Great, the win32 build now works for me - including the menu! :)
