Re: Changelog [N!tmod 2.2]

LUA Coders, here are some fresh changes and some infos that might be useful about et.G_Damage function:
Added: DAMAGE_INSTAGIB (32) flag can be used instead of ridiculously high damage values (even damage 0 will instabig player)
Fixed: DAMAGE_NO_PROTECTION (8) now works correctly. It had no effect on godmode/spawninvul.


Damage Flags (can be useful for LUA scripts using et.G_Damage)

  • DAMAGE_RADIUS 1 - Damage from a nearby explosion (This is useless in LUA, as far as i know)

  • DAMAGE_HALF_KNOCKBACK 2 - Damage only delivers half knockback

  • DAMAGE_NO_KNOCKBACK 4 - Damage delivers no knockback at all

  • DAMAGE_NO_PROTECTION 8 - Damage protection (godmode, no friendlyfire, spawn invulnerability etc...) have no effect

  • DAMAGE_DISTANCEFALLOFF 16 - Distance reduces damage (This is useless in LUA, as far as i know)

  • DAMAGE_INSTAGIB 32 - Instagib player, no matter what the damage ammount is set to

Re: Changelog [N!tmod 2.2]

Hi people smile


First i'd like to thank you all for being so patient.

I know N!tmod 2.2 has been in the making for more than a year, that 2.1RC1 is totally out of date, and that you may be sick of waiting.

But we have introduced so many new features in this version, that some bugs kept coming out until now...

I can promise that when we are done with 2.2, this will definitely be our BEST release EVER!

And there will be even more to come along with 2.3 series !!

I can now tell that, IF no new bugs are found in 2.2PR2, N!tmod 2.2 Final will be available before may 10th 2012!

Meantime, I hope you will enjoy seeing the latest changes that have been made to 2.2.

Stay tuned because 2.2PR2 will be available in a few days, and should be the last test phase!

Thanks again for your support, your patience, and your help in all the bug tracking process that we've had to go through during the development of v2.2!


Now here are some hot news !

N!tmod Dev Team now has a new programmer!

A few days ago, 7killer joined the project, ever heard of ECSMod ? Or ETKEY auto-download code ? He's the man behind this !

He joined just in time, while we're finishing v2.2 and before we start working on v2.3.

So get ready for amazing new features in 2.3 ! big_smile


I guess that from now on, we can definitely say that N!tmod is a "Made In France" mod, because Nico$, 7killer and myself are french ^^


Since he has joined, 7killer has already added his awesome hitboxes system into v2.2.

And guess what ?!

You will be able to test it as soon as we release N!tmod 2.2 PR2 (which is only a matter of days now)


But, you probably think "What's this new hitboxes system ?" or "Why would it be better than the original one ?"

Well here are some details:

  • Up to 17 hitboxes per player

    That means no more hits on places where the player is not "physically" present smile

  • Every hitbox is synced with the player animation and rotation!

    ET default hitboxes dont rotate and is (except ETPro realhead code) not linked to the player animation!

  • It doesn't use any extra entity for hit detection!

    ET default hitboxes system can use up to 128 entities on a full 64 slots server.

    Remember that too many entities can cause lags, performance issues, and can even result in server shutdown if the limit (1024) is reached!)

    Isn't it an awesome performance gain ?!

And now you wonder what do these hitboxes look like ?

Well....

Here

are

some

SCREENSHOTS! big_smile

So here's the changelog for N!tmod 2.2PR2, so far:

Added: Advanced Hitboxes System
Added: g_hitboxes cvar (0 - Use N!tmod default hitboxes | 1 - Use new hitboxes | 2 - Increase hit detection precision, perfect for sniper servers)
Added: g_hitboxes Flag 2 - Strict hit detection (Increase precision for hit detection with the new hitboxes, it's perfect for a sniper server, but might be hard to hit with other weapons when there's too much action)
Added: CoversOps smoke now inhibit tripmine
Added: g_war Flag 4 - Knife War (replacing g_knifeonly cvar)

Fixed: cg_numPopups used to allow an extra popup
Fixed: FieldOps were able to call artillery in war modes (http://etmods.net/tracker/index.php?do= … task_id=42) - This is fixed just in case, but players should no longer be able to change class when war modes are enabled
Fixed: FriendlyFire voting used to set g_friendlyFire cvar to value 1 or 0, regardless of what bitflags were used (http://etmods.net/forums/viewtopic.php?id=648)
Fixed: NGUID was not used for ban checks inside ClientConnect()
Fixed: NGUID was not used for Max Lives checks inside ClientConnect()
Fixed: Duplicate NGUID checks had no effect inside ClientConnect()
Fixed: can't pickup grenades during knife war
Fixed: g_pickAnyWeapon could allow picking up disallowed weapons during war modes
Fixed: Last printed popup messages was re-appearing for a millisecond after disappearing
Fixed: Players with Heavy weapons skill level 4 or higher couldn't use secondary weapon after a map change (Thanks >>H2O|.sCar* for reporting)
Fixed: Several problems with bans database and "in-memory" bans.

Modified: Popup messages will start fading after 1500 milliseconds instead of instantly
Modified: !finger command code has been optimized
Modified: G_Trace() and G_HistoricalTrace() functions are now adapted to the new hitboxes system (if enabled)

Reworked: The ban check function has been partially rewritten and optimized

Removed: g_knifeonly cvar (replaced by g_war option 4)

Just wondering:
Would you like to have "Graphic Obituaries" in 2.2 ?
I wrote the code for them in ET:Zombies Mod. So if there's enough interest in this, i might port this feature to N!tmod 2.2 final too smile

I'll let all of you know as soon as there's some news about 2.2PR2 wink

Have a nice day smile
