ET: Legacy 2.80.2

ET: Legacy 2.80.2 'Path Cleared! But like, for real this time!'

Two weeks ago we released the first hotfix 2.80.1 'Path Cleared!' for the initial ET: Legacy 2.80 'Clear the Path!' release another two weeks earlier. Backed by an absolutely amazing increase in activity following the recent Steam release of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, we are happy to bring another hotfix your way.

Given the age of the game, user-friendliness is not on the level of modern games. Given the recent influx in players, we improved the quality of error messages for debugging. On the other hand, we also fixed an issue crashing the game on start-up for some of you. Improving debugging is only a small part as we are also actively looking into UI customisations and improvements. (Again. But like for real this time!) Some improvements to the mod UI have already been included in this release with others still being ironed out.


PRIMARY CHANGES
  • Fixed double sound issue
  • Fixed voice chats on steam 2.60b client
  • Fixed game not running on Wayland on Linux
  • Prevented unintentional pushing by holding down +activate

OTHER NEWS

ET: Legacy on Steam? We are still reaching out to the right people regarding the possibility of releasing ET: Legacy on Steam. Some progress has been made, but unfortunately we have no official news regarding this just yet.

ET: Legacy being flagged by Anti-Virus We have acquired an official license for a new Windows installer, which allows us to digitally sign the binaries. This will make antivirus software less trigger happy in the future. Unfortunately, migrating to the new installer is still a work in progress, so this hotfix is still using the old installer without signed binaries. The new installer should be available starting with release 2.81.

ET: Legacy 2.80.1 'Path Cleared!'

With the ET: Legacy 2.80 'Clear the Path!' and the breaking in of a brand new decimal two weeks ago, we leaped into unknown territories.

Unfortunately, it seems like the ET: Legacy 2.80 release wasn't entirely clean. Especially, judging by the compatibility reports from you that we have seen. We now have identified and solved the primary cause of your spleen. But enough chit-chat, you're surely wondering: 'What does this mean?' Well, the culprit has been identified, so let us lift the smoke-screen: Reason for this hotfix is restored vanilla ET behaviour for activatelean. 'What are you even talking about?!' is what some of you might currently scream. Historically in ET, if you press +activate and A/D, instead of moving sideways, you will lean. In 2.80, this was not the case anymore, so we fixed it.

ET: Legacy 2.80.1 'Path Cleared!'

Changelog

  • This hotfix comes with some further stability and performance improvements.
  • Compared to vanilla ET, the first airstrike bomb was delayed by 750ms, which has been adjusted.
  • The perceived shooting delay based on delayed firing sound on SDL2 audio backend has been addressed. This includes changed default settings as well as an additional cvar (s_sdlLevelSamps) you can set in the audio section in the in-game system options. NOTE: The actual delay of 100ms when shooting remains. This only addresses the perceived delay based on audio latency.

LAST NOTE: We are aware of a bug occasionally triggering a second firing sound when shooting. We can assure you, this is only 'cosmetic'. There is no second bullet actually being fired. However, we are still investigating this, so unfortunately, the bug remains.

ET: Legacy 2.80

A brand new decimal is joining the ranks! After ET 2.55 and 2.60 for the official releases, the first ET: Legacy version was 2.70 in 2013. It is now nine years later and we are breaking in a new decimal with...

ET: Legacy 2.80 'Clear the Path!'

Slightly delayed, but we are still sticking to the quarterly release schedule. As mentioned last week, this release heavily targets the competitive side of ET: Legacy again to iron out the gameplay and ensure a smooth experience. However, also smaller quality of life adjustments are included. Both on the mod and the game side. For a complete list of changes coming with ET: Legacy 2.80, please refer to the changelog on our wiki.


Some honourable mentions include:

  • Optional prevention of Z-axis player shoving
  • Swapped suicide animation to the default death animation
  • A sleek looking square compass
  • Hitsound-related performance improvements
  • New sharetimer command to improve team play
  • Added option to specify scoped sensitivity separately
  • Added mod-sided flood protection
  • Removed fps-dependency of wait commands in map scripts

That is all for now. Thank you everyone for all your support, contributions, feedback and helping hands over the years. This community project certainly wouldn't have been possible without all of you. So, a heartfelt thank you! Have fun and see you on the servers!

ET: Legacy 2.79 released!

ET: Legacy 2.79 'Yule Log'

Hello everyone!

We have a last gift for you for this year: ET: Legacy 2.79 'Yule log' release. It comes bundled with a shorter, but all the more efficient changelog.

2_79_announce_blog.png


We want to thank everyone for all your support this year. Additional helping hands have joined the team and made it possible to actually implement shorter release cycles, so those of you that are not using the snapshot builds can still enjoy the newest features and fixes on a more regular basis.

Utmost respect and thanks also goes out to the admins of the ET: Legacy Competitive community. The effort put into this is incredibly motivating and a huge help. Your regular scrims combined with proper organised cups provides so much valuable hands-on feedback to this project, enabling us to prioritise and tailor features and fixes for the best ET: Legacy experience possible.

If some of you, dear ET fans, have not joined the ET: Legacy Competitive Discord, but are looking for regular matches, events and friendly banter, make sure to join the lovely folks over at ETL Comp. Discord channel. It may help in avoiding a quadra-panzer wipe withing the first 10 seconds of a match, basically handing the opponent the win. Not that this happened or anything. Just....hypothetical....you know? cough

This is all for this year. But honestly, the future of this project has never looked more promising as going into 2022. There are so many great things on the horizon for ET: Legacy, so make sure to keep an eye out for news in our Discord, as well as the Competitive one.

All that's left for us to do is wish you all happy holidays and a pleasant start to 2022.
