BZFlag Release Candidate Build 2.0.4-rc4

Post by JeffM » Sat Sep 24, 2005 8:06 pm

Today we have 2.0.4-rc4

This build is a candidate for a 2.0.4 release. Please test it as much as posible. If all works well, it will become the 2.0.4 gold master

Windows Installer
http://my.bzflag.org/builds/2.0.x/bzflag-2.0.4-rc4.exe

(requires DirectX 7+)

All current builds for 2.0.x will always be at http://my.bzflag.org/builds/2.0.x/

Linux and mac folk can, as always, build from anonymous cvs (unless it's broken); see http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=3248 to download, and read the README for build instructions.

Please report any issues you have with this build, even if you think we already know about them! Issues that aren't reported aren't likely to be fixed before release.

Thanks for your feedback.

If you want to build yourself the candidate release 2.0.4-rc4, use one of the compressed tar:

If you have Winzip, you probably have Windows, and should download http://my.bzflag.org/builds/2.0.x/bzflag-2.0.4-rc4.exe

I can help a little too. (if you don't mind :wink: ) First off, what's your platform? I can't help with Windows.

It's cool that you want to make your own build and all, but it is hardly as easy as it sounds. I suggest "meddling" on the #BZFlag IRC channel, as you will pick up some tips there by just listening. Also, try this topic:
http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2293
Looking back at that, I really made a fool of myself. Anyways, before reading that, you will need Dev-C++. I really don't have the time to write a full-length article on exactly how to do everything, but what I said above should do.
