  • Nexuiz v2.4 is out!

    Nexuiz v2.4 is out with the following improvements:

    - Completely new menu design and UI graphics, allowing easier server browsing, player setup, and game creation options such as gametype and mutators
    - Two additional maps (Strength and BloodPrison CTF)
    - Updated models for several items and three weapons, new gibs, and many texture improvements throughout the game
    - Improved performance, networking, and memory usage
    - Graphical improvements including water reflections, completely new particle effects, and improved fog rendering
    - Improved bots, including AI improvements for CTF and Domination game modes
    - Improved map voting system
    This update is a really big one if compared to v2.3 and takes Nexuiz, the best free (as in...) shooter avaible, one step further with an awesome graphic engine and gameplay features. I really recommend this game to everyone!

    There's also a new website and a new v2.4 gameplay trailer at the front site!

    I would be pleased if this could make it in the Phoronix news...

    I'm playing it right now. Very noticeable changes from the previous version, and they are all good. I can no longer play with everything on max while at 1680x1050 (HD2900XT); had to ditch HDR/Bloom and the Dynamic Lights/Shadows. The new menu looks a bit tacky, but it's nice. Finally 5.1 sound support for me .

      Well, enjoy

      One minor thing Linux users of older distros may experience: The supplied binaries were compiled on a rather "fresh" FC 8, so if e.g. your glibc is outdated the game won't start.

      Follow the instructions here: http://alientrap.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2761

        Just one question. How do you take screenshots and where are they saved? Does the game already have a set key for it or does it have to be user created?

          By default it's bound to F12. You'll find the screenshots in ~/.nexuiz/data/screenshots
