available via my private overlay
Code:
layman -a hasufell


It's not in portage yet, because it's alpha. Did anyone test? Issues, bugs? Especially the server init script required some work and is not tested thoroughly yet.

As a fan of the game Tremulous, I'm gonna install Unvanquished which seems to be the successor. Thanks for your overlay. I use some ebuilds from there. Like games-strategy/0ad which is also very nice. Really appreciated.

Hi,

I emerged the 0.28 but somehow I cannot play. Its not so clear to my why. Perhaps update the ebuild to the just released 0.30??


I can start the menu but when I try to start a game or start a server I do get errors:

join any server in the list:

Code:
CL_ParseGamestate:bad command byte


when I try to start my own server I get the following error:

Code:
VM: Failed to execute: No such file or directory



Cheers

Thanks for the ebuild, but I am impossible to connect to a server.

The GUI loads.

I checked the web server page and it says a version of 0.30 x or so and your ebuild has a version of 0.28.

Got duplicate gUID Message which means that my user id is a duplicate. and before something like config > max config or so.

I think after an update to the current version of 0.30 we could try again and see if it works.

Thanks for your efforts

I realized today that I have to manually sync layman. I think it is done with
Code:
layman -S
.

I was able to connect to the training server.

What I really wondered in comparision to tremulous which I used to play for a while in the past:

It seems it is not possible anymore to reload the lasergun on the repeater! In tremulous there used to be a feature to reload energy weapons on the reactor and on repeaters. I also saw that when you used up a clip and get close to the armory you get your clips filled up automatically but your current clip is not changed. I assume they removed the buy ammo feature or I did not found it in the small config menu in the game.

I also wonder why my game runs at 30 fps? Is it the resolution or the settings.

The game servers are usually empty. I will try to log on when the developers play on sunday.

Game Tips:

To open the in game console you have to press Shift and the Escape key. This is a known hidden feature and not very well known.

When you want to share your money or evolution points you can type in the console as alien
Code:
/share 5
to share 5 evolution points with your teammates. As human you can write
Code:
/Share 500
to share 500 money credits with your teammates.

The biggest Alien is not always the best choice.

Changes versus the old tremulous. Your team has do kill regularly the opponent else you will loose your advanced stages. So do not be lazy to kill the opponent else you may not be able to buy / evolve to a better gear / class.

It is still a base race game, the team which destroys the opponent base wins the game. It seems the build points accumulate very slowly over the time. So you are not able to rebuild a hole base in a few minutes as in tremulous. There is a buildable structure where you can aquire extra build points but this structure ahs to be build in certain spots. You see a percentage which indicates how many points you will accumulate there as bonus.

It seems teh old bind structure of tremulous still works. e.g. Open the in game console with shift and escape key than you can type for
example

Code:
/bind f12 share 5
Which sets your f12 key to give away 5 evolution points or 5 credits as humans to your teammates. It seems the share command only applies to human players. I was unable to share with my bot teammates so far on the servers i played.
