Post by stucuk » Sat Feb 28, 2015 10:05 am

Original War has been released.
- OWN Patch Section
- OWS Patch Section

Added: OpenGL Renderer (98% Complete)

Added: Ability to scroll the SAIL Editor window with the mouse wheel

Added: CenterWindow parameter (Can also be set via eset.ini)
Bug Fix: Bloody valley - far away siberite detection (Issue 10)
Bug Fix: Controlling enemy's factories (Issue 13)
Bug Fix: Restoration of 15a Ru/Am (Issue 48)
Bug Fix: multiplayer almost always synchronisation lost (Issue 51)
Bug Fix: Non-Existant Steam Achievements causing Lag (Issue 52)
Bug Fix: Game longer than 999999 ticks crashes when commands are issued to units (Issue 53)
Bug Fix: Increased FPS in-game (Issue 54)
Bug Fix: RU09 - Epsilon mission - messed up dialogs after ammo research (Issue 55)

Bug Fix: Gaining experience from repairing own damage
Bug Fix: A vast majority of control exploits was fixed
While the OpenGL Renderer is not 100% complete the game is fully playable. The parts that are missing are: Credits, In-Game Help Screen (Its a manual built into the game) and the Graphs at the end of missions that show a timeline of when units were created/destroyed. The multiplayer map descriptions are missing scrollbars. Everything else should work fine.

The OpenGL Renderer requires a Graphics Card with OpenGL 2.0 support as a minimum. The Same Resolution option may run slow on older hardware such as a GeForce 5.

By default Original War will still use Direct Draw unless you select OpenGL in the launcher's configuration section.

Great release. By the way, what does "Bug Fix: Controlling enemy's factories (Issue 13)" specifially mean? I tried to get it on OWS Bugtracker but I have no permission to read it.

It was fixed by me. It was an old exploit that allowed you to control factories of other players if you dismantled a manual car in them (had your mechanic inside).

The issue is hidden because whole exploits category is hidden in the tracker.
