Developers Build (SVN)

Post by Sandern » Sat Feb 13, 2010 8:18 pm

This is now outdated because our developers build is tied to our Steam application (which is not public yet).

The developers build is public accessible and is located at a subversion repository.

Lambda Wars is now on it's own Steam AppID, which means you need access to it on your Steam account. To still play it as an Alien Swarm mod, make the following two modifications after checking out the repository:
  • Open gameinfo.txt and change "270370" to "630"
  • Open steam.inf and change "appID=270370" to "appID=630"
[/color][/size]

Before trying out the developers build please note
  • Keep everything related to the developers build in this thread
[/size]

Getting the Alien Swarm engine developers build
The developers builds is located at: http://svn.hl2wars.com/hl2wars_asw_dev/trunk
You can view changes at: http://svn.hl2wars.com/

To checkout the most recent build follow these steps:
  1. Download TortoiseSVN: http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html
  2. Install it
  3. Create a new folder called hl2wars_asw_dev in \Steam\steamapps\sourcemods, right click it and press SVN Checkout...
  4. URL: http://svn.hl2wars.com/hl2wars_asw_dev/trunk
    Checkout directory: \Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\hl2wars_asw_dev
  5. Press ok
  6. Right click the folder again and press SVN Update
  7. In Steam add "-override_vpk" to the Launsh Options. (right click "hl2wars" -> Properties)
  8. The first time you launch the mod you may not see the menu, because it generates the sound cache the first time you launch the game.
The svn repository is public readable, so you don't need a username or password.

Alternatively you can download revision 2368 from here: http://www.hl2wars.com/download/hl2wars ... rev2368.7z
Then extract it into your sourcemods folder and press SVN Update (using TortoiseSVN). This will save you from having to download all files one by one through the svn update process (might be slightly faster).

Note: To get the change log, right click the hl2wars folder and press tortoisesvn->show log[/s]

Alright sorry Sander. Yeah I watched the vids and learned from that too. I liked the abilities panel, as well as the attributes. What I wasn't able to do was to get a grub with a worker and take it back to the HQ to get resource. Its a nice build, loved the unit control, and can't wait to do it with rebels and combine.

A question, when controlling a worked, it is still immposible to spit right? Or was I unable to find how to do it?

Well, nice work and I can tell your are taking that extra mile in coding.

Is it possible to run a dedicated server for the dev, seeing as it has multiplayer.

would make internet play a lot simpler
