A while ago I got to know the PORTAL feature in GZdoom, and I wonder if / when that will come to Zandronum? - I think the portal function allows for some fantastic new map design and gameplay experiments.

BTW the 3.0 looks nice here, thanks for all your hard work!

Give it at least 2 or 3 years, could be longer though.

Are you mocking me, the defs? both, or is this your genuine instinct?

Actually, 2-3 years seems to be the distance between major Zandronum releases:
Skulltag 0.98d - 7 Nov, 2010
Zandronum 1.0 - 24 Aug 2012
Zandronum 2.0 - 29 Mar 2015
Zandronum 3.0 - 07 Sep 2017

Code: Select all

<Decay> csnxs try being less bitter and actually helpful to the community, thanks

It can sound like mocking when you say it, but it's just the way things are with major release versions of Zandronum

I've found the way to do it, had some issues to register on this forum but it works now.
I'll provide step by step manual from my notes.
Manual for version 2.0 doesnt work anymore.
Basically this needs to be done differentlty:


Do not apply raspberry patch after getting source code.
Compilation can be done the way as manual for 2.0 suggests however compiler throws up error regarding one static char variable.
You need to change this static char in signed static char because it contains negative variables and compiler apparently dislikes this on arm.
Ibwas able to compile server then and runs normally.
Uset old config for it however Ive noticed that player respawns with shotgun now.

Some dmflag numbers needed to be changed in 3.0 compared to 2.1.2. Could this be causing your problem?

ok here is the list of all steps with both particular commands and descriptions:

Install packages necessary to perform build:

sudo apt-get install build-essential zlib1g-dev libsdl1.2-dev libjpeg-dev \
nasm tar libbz2-dev libgtk2.0-dev cmake mercurial libfluidsynth-dev libgl1-mesa-dev \
libssl-dev


Create and cd to your working directory:

$ mkdir $HOME/zandronum-build && cd $HOME/zandronum-build

Clone the Zandronum repository:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/Torr_Samaho/zandronum .

Create and cd to the directory where build files will be outputted:

$ mkdir buildserver && cd buildserver

Change variable type from char to signed char in file p_spec.cpp line 1578:

Original declaration:

static const char hexenScrollies[24][2] =
{
{ 0, 1 }, { 0, 2 }, { 0, 4 },
{ -1, 0 }, { -2, 0 }, { -4, 0 },
{ 0, -1 }, { 0, -2 }, { 0, -4 },
{ 1, 0 }, { 2, 0 }, { 4, 0 },
{ 1, 1 }, { 2, 2 }, { 4, 4 },
{ -1, 1 }, { -2, 2 }, { -4, 4 },
{ -1, -1 }, { -2, -2 }, { -4, -4 },
{ 1, -1 }, { 2, -2 }, { 4, -4 }
};

modified declaration with added signed:

signed static const char hexenScrollies[24][2] =
{
{ 0, 1 }, { 0, 2 }, { 0, 4 },
{ -1, 0 }, { -2, 0 }, { -4, 0 },
{ 0, -1 }, { 0, -2 }, { 0, -4 },
{ 1, 0 }, { 2, 0 }, { 4, 0 },
{ 1, 1 }, { 2, 2 }, { 4, 4 },
{ -1, 1 }, { -2, 2 }, { -4, 4 },
{ -1, -1 }, { -2, -2 }, { -4, -4 },
{ 1, -1 }, { 2, -2 }, { 4, -4 }
};

Generate Makefiles

Run cmake, this generates the Makefiles.

$ make clean; \
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DSERVERONLY=ON -DNO_ASM=1 ..

The -DNO_ASM=1 argument is important as it doesn't compile the architecture-dependent assembly code.

I've checked dmflags description and found respawn with shotgun only for cooperative, I'm puzzled now.
Here are dmflags that I use:

dmflags 1004740
dmflags2 8391168
zadmflags 1
compatflags 0
zacompatflags 262144

I guess a better estimate would be "never".

Considering Konar is too inactive to even hand over the IRC network, I'd say him updating his servers is even less likely.

Can you elaborate? This works fine for me. Also, it won't hurt to try with a fresh INI.


I seriously thought it was a general problem. My first post was just to verify if other people were experiencing the same problem (this does not seem to be the case apparently). I won't raise a ticket yet, as i'm currently collecting further information.

To further elaborate on the matter: Since i mostly die early on in the coop/survival stuff (due to not enough skills), i get a lot to spectate the remainder of the round. With zan 3.0 (as opposed to the testing versions and 2.1.2), it seems that in spectator mode the movement of the guy i'm following is stuttering heavily now (all doomguys, all pings). Otherwise this was very smooth (taking into account the ping of other players). I said "lag" in my first post, but this seems not to be a correct description, i really is stuttering, not lag. "Heavily" means: "very unpleasant to watch comfortably", "like a streaming movie you watch on the internet, but better should lower resolution, since you are exceeding slightly your bandwith". Not a huge problem, but very noticeable....

I keep you posted, but most likely it is just my configuration (server-side or client side) i have to dig in some further. Oh yeah, I started with a new config. ini (client side).

regards,
Have you checked the Multiplayer Options -> Network options if everything is set on fastest, especially the Game Update rate?
