Re: Minetest 5.4.0

Nicu: In the backports is nothing So far, neither Ubuntu or Debian have 5.4.0, and only the PPA offers 5.4.0 for Ubuntu - client only. But a server can be started from the command line like this: minetest --server --game game_name --config /path/to/config_file Now running the server manually is doa...

Re: Minetest 5.4.0

Nice! But as I see there is no 5.4.0-package for Ubuntu yet. When will it be come out? This PPA has the latest stable version for actively maintained Ubuntu releases from 16.04 up to 21.04: https://launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/ubuntu/stable Only minetest-server is missing at the moment - bo...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.70.0]

my intention with this pack is to make a optional modpack which adds features from versoins after 1.12 . So users who want to play 1.12 like MineClone2 can do that and 1.13-1.17 players can do that too. I'd love that. I only started playing Minecraft when it was at 1.14, so there's a lot that I don...

Re: Severe networking issues with Minetest 5.3.0

I just tried the game on a 4th PC that didn't have the updated version of wpasupplicant and, as expected, it didn't crash my router. Of course, using outdated/insecure software isn't a solution, but it was worth testing and reporting. I'll try my luck with this topic on GitHub. :)

Re: Severe networking issues with Minetest 5.3.0

I wanted to explore this issue a little here and get more insight from the team before opening an issue there. They're anyway both in here as well as on GitHub, for the most part, so there's that. :) I might downgrade wpasupplicant on one of my PCs, for a short test, but that's clearly not *the* sol...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.70.0]

The current target of MineClone 2 is having features at the level that Minecraft 1.12 brought. Minecraft will be 10 years old this year, and they had full time employees on it, so it's a hard target. But things have been progressing surprisingly well lately, so that's a great sign. That said, Ancien...

Severe networking issues with Minetest 5.3.0

Disclaimer: This is not just about Minetest, but it's a more complex situation, still not fully clear to me. However, it involves Minetest. It's also a big headache, so be prepared. :P Two days ago I started having internet connectivity issues. I suspected ISP maintenance, but it kept going on and o...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.70.0]

Thanks, Wuzzy2! :D It's great you'll stick around for a while longer. Minetest 5.4.0 will bring in some interesting refinements that I hope will benefit MineClone2 as well as other games relying on Minetest.

Thanks for contributing to the engine too, and have fun with whatever comes next! :)

Re: Minetest 5.4.0 release candidate 1

@goats: The PPA is fine, it just doesn't have 5.4.0 - that's the problem. There's a fresh rebuild of 5.3.0, but that doesn't trigger an update through the OS' update manager, considering it's labeled as the same version.

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.70.0]

You are playing Mineclone on top of Raspberry Pi OS? I would say RPi is not powerful enough, may be running only server (without GUI) could work, but running server + playing the game on the same device ... I don't know. The micro SD card is of course the slowest thing on a Raspberry Pi, but the ga...

Indeed, Python 2 is still in the Raspberry Pi OS, as default: pi@raspi4b2gb128:~ $ python --version Python 2.7.16 I wonder if v2 will still be present in Debian 11 Bullseye (next foundation for the Raspberry Pi OS) and if so, which one will be the default.

I'll maintain MineClone2 in the future if you guys want me to.
