#16324 New EliteForce release, ver. 1.37

Posted by Thilo on 16 November 2006 - 08:05 PM

Hallo,

A long time has passed since last release so it definitely is time for the fourth generation of my engine. Of course there are fixes and new features.
* The most important feature is HTTP/FTP download support. Actually, even more protocols are supported (see libcurl homepage for more info). This feature can speed up .pk3 downloads alot if you want to join a server and you don't have a required file.
* Ogg Vorbis sound files are now natively supported by the engine so you can use them in maps or mods if you like to.
* Sound attenuation has been made much more like the original so an often voiced point of critic should be dealt with as well.
* There is an experimental feature on the server side that will reduce unsteady movement of players with wrong packet settings.
* A MacOSX universal binary is now available.
