Coding against cancer

Hello guys.

Once more I’d like to come up with a topic that has been on my mind for a long time now. I do not want to go into details but I want to contribute towards cancer-research – within the scope of this project so that something good comes out of all this wasted free time. 😉

Now since the project gains only a small amount of donations I tried to gather some new ideas on how to improve on that situation but nothing really came out of it.

So now I am just going to take 35% of all the donations and pull them into a cancer-research project of my choice.

DXX-Rebirth v0.57.3 released!

Hey folks,

Today I’d like to introduce you to DXX-Rebirth v0.57.3. And as before it’s mostly a Bugfix release. A lot of work went into making the Multiplayer a lot more enjoyable and I took a lot of time to squish all the bugs that have been reported so far.

Here are some of the most important changes:

  • Added extension-support for FLAC files to play via SDL_mixer
  • Vastly reduced delay during Multiplayer matches
  • Fixed double collision result when weapon collides with a wall
  • Fixed powerups getting lost in a long Multiplayer match
  • Fixed incorrect collision-detection when dealing with very large walls
  • Fixed briefing support for Destination Saturn and Shareware
  • Fixed possible issues when restoring Coop Savestates
  • Fixed randomness for smart blobs when picking targets in Multipalyer
  • Made homing projectiles a bit easier to dodge
  • Added possibility to disable weapon autoselection while firing
  • Added ability to manually cycle through whole weapon list, no matter if weapon is auto-selectable or not
  • Many other Bugfixes and code improvements

Get the release now at the Download-page and have fun with it. And feel free to leave Feedback.
