Unvanquished Alpha 48 First Person Shooter game released

Unvanquished Alpha 48 is a fast-paced, futuristic FPS with RTS elements, pitting technologically advanced humans against hordes of highly adaptable aliens. The player can choose from either team, providing a fresh gameplay experience on both sides of the conflict. This release mainly contains bug-fixes and code cleanups. There has been art progress as well but it came late in the alpha cycle and the integration of the assets wasn’t perfect so we did not merge them.

Unvanquished Alpha 48 update from developers

Mouse Handling

  • We have reworked the way our mouse is handled by our engine. With these changes, we have fixed many mouse focus issues, such as not locking the mouse on map load and also preventing the mouse from getting stuck in the middle of the screen when switching away from Unvanquished during map load.

Breakpad

  • Last month, we introduced Breakpad to help us catch engine and gamelogic crashes on Windows and Linux. This month, we fixed an issue where the Linux crash server did not exit cleanly and hung upon exit. This should allow us to catch crashes better.

Asserts

  • We added an assert framework to help us explicitly state presumptions in our code. When our assumptions are wrong, it will trigger a warning and if it detects that we are using a debugger, it will even trigger a breakpoint to help debugging further. Fancy!
