v1.1b3 Test is Available!

Postby ReD NeCKersoN » Sat Dec 12, 2009 6:15 am

Are you the sort of gunslinger that likes to test the latest goodies?
We have a new beta test version available to tickle those itchy trigger fingers! If you'd like to step away from the saloon & those prettty bar-maids for a moment, you can help us test version 1.1b3 by having a look RIGHT HERE!
Our policy is to open the test versions to everyone these days. We only ask that you register on our forum & give us feedback. Help us out will ya?
A veritable buffet of new engine features are on hand (see last months news post for a taste), server admin weapon tweaks to make your mouth water, and even some classic maps make their way back to the battlefield. You might also notice that a few stock levels have received some graphical goodness via high-res-lightmap images. In addition, a few steps have been taken to improve frames-per-second on some of these stomping grounds as well.

Holy-Cow, are you kidding me?!? Not only is SG featured on the MoDDB website, seems we somehow managed to climb to the #3 spot out of 1,329 popular games over there! Is this based on webpage hits? I'm not sure, and it won't last, but YIPPEE-KAI-YAY! :D
SG also made the front page over at good ol' PLANETQUAKE! Big shout out to Pappy-R!

Stay tuned folks, we hope to release the OFFICIAL version 1.1 of Smokin' Guns in the very near future. Test the beta, give us feedback, and let's all work together for a great new release!

You mentioned a sound bug to do with the piano on Hang 'em High once - just to say that I get that too.

I think someone on here mentioned that bug can be eliminated by tweaking the sound settings in game. But I'm not sure. We'll have to look into that.

Hello. I downloaded the new beta .zip but im not really sure what to do with it as i'm pretty pathetic when it comes to these things. Do i just unzip it into the smoking guns folder and replace existing files? I just did that and when i try to run the game i receive this error message in the blue q3 console

vm/ui.qvm has bad header

i know there were some kind of instructions somewhere but after a glance i couldn't find them. thanks!

Any chance you could share the solution/cause of this. I am getting this error when i try to start SG. Just downloaded to latest Linux Mint install. Had to create symlinks for libopenal and libGL but have encountered this. Not sure where to go from here.

For those interested smokinguns.x86 throws this error. smokinguns.i386 works fine. Thanks!

Oh yes, 'smokinguns.x86' is the old Smokin'Guns v1.0 binary for linux. "smokinguns.i386' and 'smokinguns.x86_64' are for the latest beta.
Sorry for the confusion.
