Software News   Software News : Bugfixes for 'Blobwars' & 'Formido' available (SDL)
   posted by Cyborg on 7-Nov-2004 20:00:12 (2290 reads)
Formido:
It seems the hiscore file in the distribution archive was somehow messed up causing ridiculously huge kill-numbers in the Hall of Fame which made it impossible to join the list. To fix this, just delete the file 'data/hiscore.dat'. Formido will create a new one on next startup.

Sorry for any inconvenience. A new full archive without the corrupted file is already uploaded to os4depot.net: Formido (ca. 3,6MB)


Blobwars:
I fixed some nasty bugs in Blobwars which could lead to Grim Reapers under certain circumstances. Please see the Readme for details.

Blobwars Updater R1->R2 (ca. 400kb)
Blobwars R2 (full R2 archive, ca. 10MB)

If you are unsure, what version of Blobwars you own, just go to the Blobwars directory in a Shell and type 'blobwars -version' (without quotes). If you then read 'Release 1' you should get the Updater and update. If you read 'Release 2' you're done

I'm extremely sorry!

I uploaded the wrong archive of the updater which had this little bug in the script

A new one is already chickened and thanks to Orgin, its also already released. So please download it again, if you have problems with the checksum.

Or, for the experts , open the installer skript in a text editor, go to line 173 and change it to this:


(if (<> #result 0)


Again, sorry for any inconvenience.. sometimes, i'm a really dumb a**

Well, congrats... i never played Formido that much, due to a permanently lack of time

Thats exactly the point with Formido... its an endless, bug-slaughtering, never-ending story

And yes, with music it's twice as good.. though, it is good without music too
