Zandronum 3.1

#1

Post by Torr Samaho » Sun Dec 12, 2021 9:15 pm

At long last, the wait is finally over, and just in time before the holiday season! After more than four years in development, we are happy to announce the release of Zandronum 3.1!

Despite technically being a minor version, this comes packed with tons of fixes and additions. Something worth noting is that the skip correction ("sv_smoothplayers") couldn't make it into the final release due to unforeseen issues that made it problematic to have it on. So we had to be postpone it for a later release. Other than that, here is a short summary on some of the more notable changes:
  • A new server administration menu made by Dusk, enabling RCON users to change server settings within the menus and without needing to use the console.
  • A new private chat mode so that players can send private messages to each other (or the server), using "sayto" or "sayto_idx". The server can decide on whether or not private messages are allowed with the CVar "sv_allowprivatechat".
  • Various netcode improvements, especially with the unlagged, done by Leonard.
  • An option for players to send up to 3 backup copies of older move or weapon select commands using "cl_backupcommands". Particularly useful for players suffering from bad packet loss on a server.
  • Servers can now specify their exact country to launchers with "sv_country" instead of launchers always relying on GeoIP to determine their location.
  • New ACS functions: SetCurrentGameMode, GetCurrentGameMode, SetGameModeLimit, SetPlayerClass, SetPlayerChasecam, GetPlayerChasecam, SetPlayerScore, GetPlayerScore, InDemoMode, ExecuteClientScript, NamedExecuteClientScript, SendNetworkString, NamedSendNetworkString, GetChatMessage, GetMapRotationSize, and GetMapRotationInfo.
  • New ACS EVENT script types: GAMEEVENT_CHAT, GAMEEVENT_PLAYERCONNECT, GAMEEVENT_ACTOR_SPAWNED, GAMEEEVENT_ACTOR_DAMAGED, and GAMEEVENT_ACTOR_ARMORDAMAGED.
  • New SBARINFO commands: IfSpectator [not] [dead] and IfSpying [not].
  • New DMFlags and CompatFlags: sv_nounlaggedbfgtracers, sv_nodoorclose, sv_forcesoftwarepitchlimits, sv_shootthroughallies, sv_dontpushallies, compat_resetglobalvarsonmapreset, and compat_noobituaries.
  • New vote types for enabling/disabling DMFlags ("callvote <flag name> <value>), and skipping to the next level (like the CCMD "nextmap") or next secret level (like the CCMD "nextsecret").
  • Mods can now set up the DMFlags, CompatFlags, and LMSFlags they need enabled or disabled for any game mode, all within the GAMEMODE lump.
  • New parameters to the "addmap" and "insertmap" commands, specifying the minimum and maximum number of players required to enter a map.
  • Players can now use names with complex colouring schemes without having to worry about reaching the length limit because of colour codes.
  • More security checks to "ConsoleCommand". Particularly, the CVar "cl_protectcvars" prevents ConsoleCommand from permanently changing a user's settings, and CVARINFO can now safely replace any CVars that were previously created using ConsoleCommand.
  • Loading ZIP/PK3 files containing duplicate protected lumps now results in a fatal error when hosting a server.
  • Added support for player colour sets.
  • Added most of the features originally from ZCC, including: chat prefixes/suffixes, custom weapon swaying, bobbing, offsetting, extra information for "cl_identifytarget", and more.
  • Added all of the text colours from "New Text Colours" originally made by FuzzballFox.
  • Changed the executable icon for Windows users to a more sleek, modern design originally made by Medicris.

And of course, here is the full list of changes:

Code: Select all

*+	- Added a new server administration menu, from which server settings can be changed without needing to use the console. The menu will ask for the RCON password if necessary. Gameplay and compatibility settings are now grayed out unless the user has RCON access and work online properly. Added various Zandronum-specific gameplay settings to the menu. [Dusk]
*+	- Added a new chat mode that lets players send private messages to each other. The sender can either pass the player's name with "sayto" or a player's number with "sayto_idx". Alternatively, players can send private messages to the server by passing "server" as a name. [Kaminsky]
*+	- Added the CVar "sv_smoothplayers" to improve the movement of lagging players. [Kaminsky]
+	- "stat nettraffic" now also shows information on the number of many missing packets the client requests from the servers. [Torr Samaho]
+	- The server can now broadcast the MD5 hashes of loaded PWADs to launchers. [Sean]
+	- Added new console commands "demo_ticsplayed" to show the current position in demo playback and "demo_skipto" to skip to such a position.
+	- Added new console variable "sv_nodoorclose" to prevent manual door closing, in order to prevent large numbers of players from blocking a door by continuously opening and closing it. [DoomJoshuaBoy]
+	- Added new compatibility flag "compat_noobituaries" to prevent obituaries from being printed to the console when a player dies. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new compatibility flag "compat_resetglobalvarsonmapreset" to reset all global ACS variables upon resetting the map like in survival. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new ACS functions: SetGamemodeLimit(int limit, int value) to change gamemode limits, SetCurrentGamemode(str gamemode) to switch gamemodes during a game, and GetCurrentGamemode() to get the gamemode being played. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS function: SetPlayerClass(int player, str class, bool respawn) to allow changing of a player's class. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS functions: SetPlayerChasecam(int player, bool enable) and GetPlayerChasecam(int player) to enable or disable the built-in chasecam for the player. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added a new scoreboard icon that displays if a player is lagging to the server. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS functions: SetPlayerScore(int player, int type, int value) and GetPlayerScore(int player, int type) to get or set the player's score. The type can be either frags, points, wins, deaths, kills, or the item and secret counts. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added an ACS special to check whether the game is in demo or not [DoomJoshuaBoy/geNia]
+	- Added new SBARINFO commands: IfSpectator [not] [dead] and IfSpying [not] that execute a sub block if the local player is (not) a (dead) spectator, or (not) spying on another player respectively. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS functions: ExecuteClientScript and NamedExecuteClientScript which let the server execute clientside scripts for only one client as opposed to everyone. This allows net traffic to be greatly optimized, such that the server only sends out commands to the client(s) that matter. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS functions: SendNetworkString and NamedSendNetworkString, allowing strings to be sent from the server to the client(s) and vice versa, which are passed as the first argument of script to also be executed. Note that sending strings from client to server works just like puking scripts and there's no guarantee they are sent to the server successfully. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added a new EVENT script type: GAMEEVENT_CHAT that triggers when a non-private chat message is sent. Use this in conjunction with the ACS function: GetChatMessage(int player, int offset) to get the last chat message received by the player (or the server if -1 is passed). [Kaminsky]
+	- Added a new floating icon that shows if a player is in the menu. [DoomJoshuaBoy/geNia]
+	- Added the CVar "con_showtimestamps" which adds a timestamp to the beginning of each line on the console. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the CVar "cl_showpacketloss" which prints how many packets were missed when the client experiences packet loss. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added a check that prevents demos from being played if the version string stored in the file doesn't match the current version being used. This means, for instance, a release version of Zandronum cannot playback a demo that was recorded using a beta version. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the CVar "cl_hidevotescreen" which controls if the vote screen should be hidden shortly after the client makes their vote. In order to keep the same behaviour like in older versions, this CVar is set to true by default. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new console variable "sv_forcesoftwarepitchlimits" to force the player's pitch to be limited to what's allowed in the software renderer. [Kaminsky]
+	- Backported the chat prefix and suffix features from ZCC, which have been renamed to "cl_chatprefix" and "cl_chatsuffix" respectively. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new options to GAMEMODE: "gamesettings" and "removegamesetting", allowing modders to specify what gameplay or compatibility flags need to be enabled or disabled for a particular game mode. All flags added into the "gamesettings" block are locked and cannot be manually changed while the game mode is being played unless they're removed using the latter option. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added a new vote type for changing gameplay flags by doing "callvote <flag name> <value> [reason]", which can also be disabled by the server using the "sv_noflagvote" CVar. Also added the missing checkbox for changemap votes in the server console window. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new parameters to the "addmap" and "insertmap" CCMDs that specify the minimum and maximum number of players required to enter a map. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added ACS functions: GetMapRotationSize and GetMapRotationInfo to get information about the server's map rotation. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added new console command "weapswap" which swaps the player's weapon to the one they were using before. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the CVar "cl_telespy". [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the CVar "cl_protectcvars" which makes ConsoleCommand not archiving CVar changes to the user's config file optional. [Kaminsky]
+	- CVars defined in CVARINFO can now replace "unknown" variables, particularly those originally created using ConsoleCommand. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the the console commands "spyto" and "spyto_idx". [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the console command "spycarrier" for spying on players carrying gamemode-specific items. Particularly useful for streamers who want to quickly switch to the carrier(s). [Kaminsky]
+	- The map rotation is now synced with the clients, meaning clients can now use the "maplist" CCMD to view the map list. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added "cl_autoready" to automatically set a client as ready to go and "cl_intermissiontimer" to show the intermission countdown and the next map. [DoomJoshuaBoy/Kaminsky]
+	- Added CVars that customize how the weapon bobs, sways, and offsets based on the player's pitch, or whether or not to bob the screen itself while leaving the weapon bob unaffected. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the GAMEMODE flag DONTPRINTPLAYERSLEFT to prevent printing the "waiting for players" or "x allies/opponents left" message at the bottom of the screen. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added all of the text colors from "New Text Colors", originally made by FuzzballFox. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the EVENT script type: GAMEEVENT_PLAYERCONNECT, indicating when a client or bot joins the server. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the EVENT script type GAMEEVENT_ACTOR_SPAWNED and GAMEVENT_ACTOR_DAMAGED, which are triggered just before an actor's first tic and when an actor takes damage. Note that for performance reasons, these events are disabled by default so modders have to enable them by themselves. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the EVENT script type GAMEEVENT_ACTOR_ARMORDAMAGED that's triggered just before an actor's armor absorbs any damage inflicted on it. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added DMFlags: "sv_shootthroughallies" and "sv_dontpushallies", so a player's attacks can pass through and not push their allies. [Kaminsky]
+	- Added packet loss mitigation, which the client can control using the CVar "cl_backupcommands". [Kaminsky]
+	- Added the server CVAR "sv_country", which allows servers to present their country to launchers. [Sean]
+	- Added the new nextmap and nextsecret vote types. [Sean]
+	- Added the CVar "sv_respawndelaytime", which allows servers to decide how long players must wait before they can respawn. [Kaminsky]
-	- Fixed: Bots tries to jump to reach item when sv_nojump is true. [sleep]
-	- Fixed: ACS function SetSkyScrollSpeed didn't work online. [Edward-san]

-	- Fixed: Bots DH_ARRAYSET implementation is wrong. [sleep]

-	- Fixed SetActorProperty not working online with APROP_StencilColor. [Kaminsky]
-	- The console and chat no longer opens or closes while the user is holding down the grave or enter keys. This makes it extremely difficult to flicker the console or chat icons and trigger client command floods. [Kaminsky]

!	- Replaced the executable icon with a more sleek, modern design originally made by Medicris. [Kaminsky]

I know this is probably a long shot.. But seeing as I cannot get zcc to compile at all on my rig.. can someone else do it that will be compatible with 3.1? Would be neat as I'm used to Al the additions that zcc has. Also neat to see zan being worked on. Now just wished we can have something other then MegaMan to play..

What's the point in this parameter? Server admin determines under what flag to show his server (instead of real country)?

The main reasoning is that GeoIP can often be inaccurate, and this allows server admins affected by that to set their country correctly.
For example: Doom Explorer has displayed the Blue Firestick server chain as incorrectly being in France for a while now, despite actually being in the UK.
Of course, it would allow server hosts to lie about their country or hide it, but players could still use ping to determine whether a server is worth playing. And an option could be added to server browsers that forces all servers to use GeoIP, if the user wanted.

zan 3.1's gzdoom codebase is the same as zan 3.0's, which is that of gzdoom 1.8.6 (may 8 2014)

The "how far behind" question's answer is not going to change for a long time unless a miracle happens. It's PRETTY old, so old that it hasn't even caught up on half the newest DECORATE features yet.

Oh and congrats on the release I suppose. Hoping newer releases won't take as long :)

Nice work, it's good to see unique features for online multiplayer.
I know that many of us would love to have all the features of the lastest GZDoom versions, but let's be honest, all these options for multiplyaer being unique to Zandronum make it very good anyway.

I'm so glad to see a new release, gonna update Doomshack's cluster accordingly at some point. Thanks a ton to everyone on the Zand team! I hope you guys keep working on this, some of us do appreciate it.

I know this isn't the place for feature requests, but I can see a lot of people using this to display fake countries for various stupid reasons. Wouldn't an option to simply not display country at all for that cluster be better, to avoid clusters "lying" about it?

This is also a great idea.

That CVAR exists because there were (still are, probably) some issues with clusters not displaying the correct country, and the option to specify the correct one is useful for that.

Sadly, the bug where Zandronum skips maps when more than one exit line is activated seems to have returned.

Can you post a ticket on the tracker, and/or include a minimal example wad if possible?
