Obsidian Conflict 1.35 Hotfix #1

Post by Shana » Tue Jan 24, 2012 12:56 am

Greetings everyone!

Due to the amount of time the Steamworks version takes, we decided to release hotfixes for the currently released version (1.35) to make the wait more bearable by ironing out some of the pesky bugs 1.35 has.

There are 2 versions;

One for dedicated servers, which contains the server binaries and improved mapadds,

As well as a client version which does not contain any binary files due to risks of possibly triggering VAC.

Even though personal tests showed that nothing happened yet running newer client binaries, we decided we do not want to take the risk since answers from Valve regarding that matter have been ambiguous at best, so do not get the hotfixes mixed up when you install them (no running the mod client with the hotfix server binary).

As mentioned before, this also contains a few improved mapadds, specially for some of the Half-Life 2 maps which got broken due to Valve porting HL2 and EP1 to the Orange Box Engine.

We are sure more hotfixes for 1.35 will follow to iron out even more bugs and probably even a full release at one point (like an 1.35b) which will allow us to update the client binaries without risk as well.
Below is the full changelog. Please note that even though most of these changes/fixes were ported over from the Steamworks version, this hotfix does not represent its current progress.

Be sure to check out the underground combine bunker level of broken_escape_2. It's got a couple neat retextures, if you look.

AHAHAHAHAHA a part of the bugs/improvements were made by me.

I like especially that the zombine allow now custom model (this means that the rest of entities are fixed too, and then, the custom model bug is finally fixed?), the vehicles killing players and the new option for the lives mode.


Only a question. Weapon Scripts. They gonna be fixed and updated?


I gonna need install this in order to continue playing online?

This indicates me that i have to speed up on the "HLS rebirth" and "Proyect Back" works, as well as finishing Nacht der Untoten and present the V2 of the CS Siege OC.

All the ones we updated were tested to work, so if anything might be broken, it's the older mapadds, give us a list of all the maps with broken level changes so we can check it out.

I appreciate this update, many fixes that make the mod have a much more enjoyable online experience , especially the no punting vehicles that people are in a vehicle fix, now people won't grief on very long maps that require the jeep to continue on. Thank you all on the modding team <3.
