É isso aí pessoal, ontem dia 11 de julho foi lançada a versão Skulltag 98c. Entre muitas correções de bugs e melhorias, posso citar que esta liberação agora possui suporte para o Mac OS X, fazendo do Skulltag o segundo port multiplayer de Doom a suportar todos os três principais sistemas operacionais!

Algumas outras características novas do Skulltag são o “free-floating spectating” (permite “flutuar”) para demos, “per-playerid ignore” (ignorar) e “unignore” (não ignorar) jogadores, e um mapa D2CTF2 totalmente renovado!! 😈

Há muitas coisas para a galera que adora criar mapas (os chamados mapmakers ou levelords), bem como suporte ao SERVERSIDEONLY DECORATE e também comandos para análise de tráfego rede que ajudam a rastrear bugs nas conexões.

Incluído com Skulltag está uma versão mais recente do Doomseeker, que agora suporta ZDaemon além do Skulltag, Odamex, Vavoom e Chocolate Doom. Devo ressaltar que os plugins não fazem parte da distribuição Doomseeker incluída com o Skulltag, mas podem ser baixados à parte através da versão completa aqui.

Caso interesse à alguém, segue abaixo a lista completa de modificações (em inglês):

*+   - Skulltag now supports Intel based Macintoshes (mainly done by backporting ZDoom revisions 1571, 1581, 1607, 1736, 1779, 1780, 1786-1788, 1793, 1807, 1814, 2122). [Blzut3, Torr Samaho]
+   - Added basic outbound net traffic analysis code for the server. This code allows to find out which actor classes and which ACS scripts use how much net traffic and should greatly simply the identification of network bandwidth hogs in custom mods. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added a verification system that allows the master server to verify that a server-master-challenge came from an existing server. Furthermore, servers now acknowledge the receipt of the ban list to account for packet loss. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new CVAR sv_logfile_append (default false). If enabled, a logfile is started and there already is a file with the specified name, the new log is appended to the existing file. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added free spectate mode for client side demos, started with the new CCMD demo_spectatefreely. In this mode, you can move freely while the demo is played as if you were a spectator while the game was recorded. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new DECORATE actor flag SERVERSIDEONLY. The clients don't spawn such actors, only the server does. Therefore, spawning or manipulating these actors does not need network bandwidth. Only use it on actors that are always invisible and don't block the movement of players. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new dmflag "don't identify target player", controlled by the new CVAR sv_noidentifytarget. If this is true, clients are enforced not to identify players, i.e. behave as if cl_identifytarget == 0. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new dmflag "always apply lmsspectatorsettings", controlled by the new CVAR sv_applylmsspectatorsettings. If this is true, lms_spectatorchat will be respected in all game modes. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added the invasion spawners for Strife made by GorpusMorpus. Also thanks to Archfile for cleaning the doomednums. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Extended the launcher protocol to optionally report the values of the new flag CVARs dmflags3 and compatflags2. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new CVAR sv_randomcoopstarts (default false). If true, in cooperative game modes players are spawned at random player starts instead of the one designated for them. [Torr Samaho]
+   - Added new dmflag "don't draw coop info", controlled by the new CVAR sv_nocoopinfo. If this is true, clients are enforced not to coop info, i.e. behave as if cl_drawcoopinfo == 0. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: G_SecretExitLevel causes a skill change to 0 due to a typo by VC in G_ChangeLevel parameter list [Eruanna]
-   - Fixed: sv_forcegldefaults 1 doesn't properly enforce the default GL lighting mode after a map change. [Eruanna, Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: Executing spynext/spyprev on the server caused the server to crash. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: The server ignored the CLIENTSIDEONLY flag for map spawned actors. [Torr Samaho]

-   - Fixed: A_PlaySound/A_PlaySoundEx did not loop properly online. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: If a morphed player defected to another team, a voodoo doll was left behind. [Torr Samaho]

-   - Fixed problems with player names containing incomplete color codes of type "\c[X". [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: In LMS/TLMS and coop with "sv_shotgunstart 1" client side demos, the consoleplayer's starting weapon is not properly recorded. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: When a player suicided online with "skill 0", the clients thought the player had a health of 24388 instead of 0. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: When a spectator disconnected, the disconnect particle effect was created at its last known position. Now the effect is already created when a player turns into a spectator. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed a server crash that could happen directly after a "map" map change when there were players in the game before the map change. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: A client that disconnected before spawning as spectator could cause an active duel to be reset. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: Exploding projectiles didn't properly enter their xdeath or crash state on the clients online. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: Spectators could bump non-teleport line specials offline. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: If a player turned into a spectator while crouching, the spectator kept the slow crouching speed. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: Actors like LostSoul that deal damage by slamming could cause player health desyncs on the clients. [Torr Samaho]

-   - Fixed: The ACS function ReplaceTextures didn't work properly online and its effects were not reverted during a map reset. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: If the packet with the client's map change authentication is lost, the client stayed on the old map locally. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed: When playing a client side demo with a "map" map change, the console could be flooded by "No body for player" errors and Skulltag could crash. [Torr Samaho]

-   - Fixed: When a bot was removed from the game, it didn't execute its disconnect scripts. [Torr Samaho]
-   - Fixed an exploit that could turn a client into some kind of ghost mode. Kudos to kgsws for finding and reporting this exploit. [Torr Samaho]

-   - Fixed: In game modes where players earn "wins", the server returned the number of kills instead the number of wins for each players when asked for SQF_PLAYERDATA. [Torr Samaho]
