ZDaemon goodies

Post by fx »


Today Raider finally announced release of new ZDaemon version 1.08.08c and release of public beta version 1.09.

Some of new goodies:

New Picture-In-Picture feature when spectating duels.
"DVD-like" playback controls (play/pause/forward/backward) while watching demos.
New "double domination" mode.
Team radar that shows the position of teammates in all team modes.
Built in railgun, zooming (sniper scope) and an instagib mode.
New, highly customizable font system, offering improved readability of console and ingame messages.
Improved unlagged.
Much smoother movement for higher ping players.
Clients can control the number of incoming packets (user-selectable fineticks).
Tons of coop fixes that will make the mode much more enjoyable!
Greatly improved Heretic support.
Increased playerlimit from 16 to 50.
Working polyobjects.
Much improved wine support (linux) for the launcher and ZRC.
Several new DMFLAGS for improved fidelity to doom2.exe.
Improved team balancing; it should result in more balanced team games.
A new update mechanism in ZLauncher that ensures proper and easy updates of all game related files. The mechanism will significantly simplify later upgrades to newer (beta or final) versions.
