Forum topic: Thanks for the update
Thanks for the frequently feedback.
We are almost done with the next update, hope you'll enjoy.
Forum topic: youtube video missing in media section
The thumbnail does not show up, but theres a play button which works fine
The team welcomes outside help like this.
If anyone wants to make an 'official' chaosesque website with forum etc, feel free.
None in the team really wants to do the work for that (would rather code and work on game media).
Thankyou again for making the delta.
Forum topic: Desired Features
Note: ChaosEsque is loyal to Darkplaces and will not change engines
Any desired features will be ported over or added
Currently used DP source is a fork of it from 2013 (where there was a stable version that worked well on all platforms including intel gfx),
with some possible security updates etc from git repo hand patched in, and the ability to switch out textures without being in single player mode if a password is property set in a certain cvar.
You can find it on the ISO in darkplacesblablabla.zip
Only the Linux binaries are compiled from this. The Windows and Mac are still that version but without additions or patches, because all devs use linux, and none use mac or windows. (Anyone know how to build new versions for those platforms, is there a how to?)
They are compiled as xonotic release. (./all compile -r) Compiling as debug gives major slowdowns (as would be expected).
Any expansions/additions would be made to that version, and it is desired that new code be clean (be put in seperate file so can
be easily patched into newer DPs if DP wants the new additions).
Any version of DP can be used with the game so far however.
The idea would be to add a cvar "use extentions" or something like that, and only if the server admin set that would the higher-entity count protocal be used, thus backwards compatibility would be kept.
These are just ideas, none of the team has had much experience working in the engine code, we've only done small things.
If anyone does have experience poking around there, and wants to contribute, we're open to it.
Also the version of DP we use still works with MOD type sound formats, that was removed from DP.
We'll be keeping that aswell. (It was noted by LH that said code could do with a security audit)

thank you for doing this.
Since people were complaining about large download sizes, I went ahead and made a Release 56 -> Release 57 patch.
It is 7.3MB and can be applied with xdelta3. Patches any further back are considerably larger, but if someone really needs one I have versions back to release 54.
