The previous version had a combination of compatibility issues that I have been trying to fix ever since the last release. As I was unable to fix some of the issues with Direct3D renderer I decided to switch to using OpenGL renderer by default on Windows too. Direct3D renderer is still available as a backup for cases where OpenGL does not work. You can enable it with a '--direct3d' command line argument.

A sentry gun in tutorial

I have made some changes to score calculation to make the score more dependent on skilled gameplay and less on luck. For example I removed vials in supply packs, because those added a totally random component to final level score. The score given based on level completion time was also slightly increased. Although the scores with older versions are not directly comparable anymore I decided not to reset online high-scores.

Shoot your friend in the back

Here's full list of changes since 1.0.0 beta release:

  • Replaced all computer generated announcement sounds with human voices.
  • Revert to windowed mode instead of failing if primary monitor can't be detected.
  • Reimplemented decal rendering to fix really slow decal updates with some Windows OpenGL drivers.
  • Show error pop-up on some rare errors previously leading to silent failure.
  • Added '--systemerrors' command line option for enabling more informative Windows error dialogs.
  • Removed unnecessary high-score download for level editor previews.
  • Hid internal unusable trigger elements from level editor.
  • Removed a sentry gun that was too hard to destroy in the 5th single player level.
  • Added a sentry gun to the tutorial level.
  • Removed a couple of obsolete resource files from installation.
  • Supply packs no longer contain vials.
  • Slightly increased the score given based on level completion time.
  • Lowered the total number of spiders spawning from a nest.
  • Added instructions in readme.txt for setting the target time for custom levels.
  • Set OpenGL renderer as default on Windows too.
  • Properly signed Windows executable to get rid of the "unknown publisher" warnings.

Crunchbang Linux seems to be based on Debian Squeeze so you are likely facing the exact same problem as lordkgd. This will be fixed in next alpha version coming very soon.

Ok, thanks for trying it though!

I tested the 0.6.1 release on 64-bit Crunchbang Linux 10 without problems, so this problem must be something more specific and does not rule out Crunchbang Linux support completely.

Unable to open library: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by ./lib/libplatform.so)

Current Linux builds do require GLIBCXX_3.4.15 support in libstdc++. This is something related to used compiler and library versions, not kernel version.

I thought I tested this in Debian 6, I will have to look into this. Is your Debian 32 or 64-bit?

my debian 6.0.5 is a 32 bit version. squeeze release with 2.6.32.5.686 kernel. but i think i can't play it , because of library version (you surely right at this point). may i have to look for another distro or wait for an update? however , thx for reply. :)

It seems that I accidentally built the 0.5.0 release using wrong environment, so now it depends on too new libstdc++ version! I will try to fix this issue before the next release (which is coming soon).
