This version is outdated. See this for the latest version.


To access the startup configuration window, hit space bar quickly (< 1sec) as soon as a splash screen becomes visible.

IMPORTANT NOTICE OpenSpades 0.0.12 had a bug that caused fog to disappear completely. Download 0.0.12b and delete 0.0.12. (OS X version is not affected)

Highlights

  • Crouch jumping now works correctly.
  • Addressed the issue that caused OpenSpades to fail to connect certain servers. (987ed84)
  • German/Korean translation added. (cf2d19b)
  • Fixed the issue that caused to bypass the startup window by default.
  • Player movement got closer to one of AoS 0.75/0.76β. (9a7f943)

Notes for OS X users

Due to recent changes in the security system of Mac OS X, you might see the message that says "it can't opened because it is from an unidentified developer" when you try to launch OpenSpades by double clicking the application icon. This can be circumvented by right-clicking the icon, and then clicking "Open".

Another option will pop up. Click "Open" to launch OpenSpades.

Happy new year!

Hold Shift key while launching the program to access the startup configuration window.

EDIT (Jan 3, 2014): OpenSpades-0.0.10-Windows-winxp.zip supports Windows XP.

New Features

Since 0.0.95u (Unofficial)

  • Some little fixes
  • Chat log viewer
  • Handles up to five mouse buttons
  • Supports CP437 character set, which is used by the original AoS
  • Built-in font now covers accented latin alphabets
  • Unicode fonts included (however, this is disabled by default. Take a look at the included Official Mods directory)
  • r_occlusionQuery defaults to 0 (work-around for #106)

Since 0.0.9

  • New GUI
  • Keyboard shortcut in limbo menu (thanks to learn_more)
  • Killfeed images and program icon (thanks of JoJoe_Stinky)
  • 3D iron sights (note: this breaks mod compatibility for weapon skins that doesn't include script files)
  • Partial unicode support
  • Partial IME support via SDL 2.0 (unfortunately, CJK IMEs actually doesn't work on the current version)
  • Addressed a bug that caused third-party pak files to be completely unusable
  • Mouse acceleration control
  • Chat notify sound can be muted
  • Increased weapon accuracy to match the original AoS
  • Color specification method of 2D images was changed to allow additive blending

Experimental Components Included

These components are currently considered unstable and might be removed in the future release.

YSR

YSR is a experimental 3D HDR sound engine suited for headphones. Choose YSR in "Audio" group of the startup window's setup tab, put your headphones on, and have a fun.

SSE3 enhanced CPU is required. Latest dual-core CPU is recommended.

YSRSpades.dll includes the HRTF measurement data of a KEMAR dummy-head microphone.

Software Renderer

An experimental non-Voxlap software renderer is included in this build. We have good news and bad news: the bad one is that it runs 4x slower than Voxlap. The good one is that it makes good use of modern multi-core processors. It also features "fast mode".

Assets 3
  • Many new visual effects (DoF, lit particles, new water renderer)
  • Some effects are updated and some are more optimized
  • Tools (spade, block, weapons, grenade) are now scriptable
  • Weapon spread visualizer (cg_debugAim)
  • Variable radiosity precision (set cg_radiosity to 1 or 2)
  • Some bug fixes, and many changes

Notes

  • You might experience your video driver crashing (ex. computer becomes completely unresponsible for some seconds) after enabling the new water renderer. In this case, setting r_occlusionQuery to 0 will solve this problem at the cost of the performance.
  • This version (OpenSpades-0.0.9-Windows-msvc.zip) is compiled with MSVC (thanks to learn_more), which means a binary of much better quality (faster, stable, ...).

Fixed serious bugs:

  • Global Illumination crashes on Windows (the root cause is still unknown)
  • cg_protocolVersion defaulted to empty value, which resulted in connection failure

Note: Version number in "About" tab says 0.0.8. OpenSpades.exe's file size is smaller in 0.0.8b than in 0.0.8.
