Last weekend the first beta test has been started on the new crossfire server using the current version of Crossfire 1.8
This test was only for the active developers of the mod. Normal players were not allowed to attend to minimize the risk of false data.
Eventhough not all systems have been finshed yet we did intent to test the gameplay, the server performance, they new key features and the stability of the server and the mod.Just like expected the mod ran very stable and with a fantastic performance. We had to experience some graphical problems with older graphic cards (with less than 256mb) but meanwhile a complete new compatibility mode has been written for Crossfire 1.8 and also been tested with success.
All reported problems could have been fixed within one week and now its time to get the final systems finished so we can start the 2nd beta test with the members of the Crossfire community.
