Moviebattles II Hotfix Released


V1.8.0.1 Update

  • Fix/Change: Players in private duels will no longer be able to enter vehicles that are assumed to have extra seats to avoid causing a potential server crash.

    • More areas blocked from allowing Swoops to top area.
    • Further refinement to secret areas, maps no longer contain weapons.
    • Improvements made to further protect against server crashes.
MBII Client
  • Change: Updated the bundled Windows and Linux versions of the separately maintained MBII Client (mbii.x86.exe) based on OpenJK. The MBII Client is GPL licensed and has its source code available at MBII/OpenJK.
    • The Windows build now defaults to using GameData (same as original JAMP) for writing user settings. This change should not affect players using the launcher as that already sets fs_homepath to do the same.
    • fs_game now defaults to MBII. Can still be overridden by setting it in startup parameters.
    • Updated Linux build so it is now close to upstream OpenJK and includes recent fork changes. The client (mbii.i386) should be compatible with Ubuntu 18.04+ and other distros with at least GLIBC 2.27. The dedicated server (mbiided.i386) should be compatible with CentOS 7+ and any other distros with at least GLIBC 2.17 (this can be checked by running ldd --version).
    • NOTE: If switching from OpenJK to MBII client, you may need to update your cl_renderer setting to rd-vanilla-mbii. Without this you will not get r_aspectCorrectRotatePic2 which is used with widescreen UI correction.
  • A Linux Installation Guide is now available on the wiki. Some basic familiarity with Linux is assumed, but the information should be helpful for anyone attempting to setup on that platform for the first time.

Internal Beta Team
ive always weighed about beta team private vs public open and i think if i had to choose i prefer private

and its really simple why

because ive met so many retards in game
Private testing hasnt always given the best results, besides there aren't enough active testers, haven't been in a long time


Movie Battles II Team
It really needs to be a mix of both at this point, public beta for the general feedback and "reading the room" and private beta for the serious game breaking bugs/exploits and early concepts like new classes/things that one can't easily framework into an open beta.

Frenzy's weekly scrims (not that I've had the best track record of making) are a good middle step but only goes as far as maps/models/FA stuff within the current build.
i'm still mad about the death star map having the open space hangar pointing at the double walkways just because it was wrong for so many years i don't know how to not be mad about it

thanks alot, lindsey
