Thought I would post some progress reports on v1.1 of War3x.
There are still a few crash bugs that exist in v1.0(1) of the plugin. I have located a few with the help of Bailopan's (unreleased) 1.71 AMXX dll, which includes binary logging, and have fixed them, but since I am not logging on a heavily populated server, I'll have to wait until we do an official public test (like a couple weeks ago) for the new version.
These crash bugs are all that is slowing development. A few more minor things and Artifacts, Powerups, racial shops, and new races can be added (WAR3X plans for 8 total!). If you would like to help catch crash errors, please PM me on the boards and we will work something out.
As for v1.1, it is nearing completion (crashing aside). Here are the main changes to 1.1.
- MULTILINGUAL SUPPORT - 100%
(4/2/06) *UPDATE* Completed.
- WAR3X STATS! - 20%
This will give you information letting you know how effective your skills are, as well as classifying the top players of different play styles on the server, such as support role/aggressor. Top players will be rewarded money, and in the future, a backpack with a rare item!
- KILL ASSISTS - 85%
(4/2/06) *UPDATE* - crash bug(s) found. more testing/tweaking required.
- OPTIMIZATION - 95%
This should speed up war3x in areas it was lagging behind in. Remember that the code hasnt been touched for the most part in about a year, so it needed a cleanup.
- LOAD-ERROR PREVENTION - 100%
This will prevent the plugin from loading (and crashing due to missing files) if any required files are missing, and will generate some log files in the process.
- ADMIN MENU - 20%
This will give admins a menu that will allow them to easily give players xp/levels, as well as enable/disable the plugin.
- HELP SYSTEM OVERHAUL - 0%
The new help files will be multi-lingual, orgnized, and prettier!
TOTAL PROGRESS: 74% (Estimated release ~1.5 weeks)
