Myth II 1.8.1 Public Beta 2

Postby Myrd » Thu Aug 18, 2016 11:11 pm

Project Magma is proud to announce that the second official public beta of Myth II version 1.8.1 is now available.

This update contains a number of fixes for issues in the original 1.8.1 beta and we hope it should be very close to what the final release of 1.8.1 will look like. The list of changes since public beta 1 is provided here: Changes_1.8.1_beta2.txt

Myth II 1.8.1 is an incremental update over Myth II 1.8, providing improved support for modern operating systems (e.g. HiDPI/Retina display support) and various bug fixes and improvements.

Download public beta #2 here: http://tain.totalcodex.net/items/show/m ... lic-beta-2

NOTE - Aug.23, 2016: The installers were found to contain an incorrect version of "Patch 1.8 Interface". The windows installer has been updated, but for other versions, or if you already downloaded: Please get this file and place it into your plugins folder to fix the crash on the control preference screen.

To see the detailed list of changes, consult the ReadMe here: Readme_1.8.1_beta2.pdf

Everyone is encouraged to install this second beta, and help test the next version of Myth II. We need your help to find any bugs, so that we can fix them before the final version.

Please post all bug reports regarding Myth II 1.8.1 in this thread.

Note: This second beta is set to expire October 1st, by which time we expect to have the final version released.

Had a strange OOS game. I started the game without being on a team (no units, not listed with f7), couldn't see my own chat but host could. After rehost I was in the game lobby but not visible, could chat but name was blank.

Thanks for reporting this. We had the incorrect version of the interface plugin in the installer.

I've updated the windows installer, but the mac and linux installers will still have the old file for now.

Get the fixed file here (place inside your plugins folder): http://www.projectmagma.net/projects/my ... ce-pb2.zip

I think the Mac installers should already have the latest files.

When I try to open the game after installing this second beta, my antivirus program deletes the application and says it is a virus (I use Panda Free Antivirus). With my antivirus on, I can only enter the older version, which works OK. By turning the antivirus off, I can also use the new public beta. I suppose it has something to do with the firewall, but I'm not really sure what could be done for me to be able to play 1.8.1 without turning off my antivirus program. Any suggestions?

What OS are you running?
What virus does it say it detected?
Can you add an exclusion rule so it doesn't scan your myth folder?

I'm using Windows 7.
That exclusion tipp was very useful, now it works perfectly, thank you very much for the help!

Can you check if it works in 1.8? What operating system version?

Windows 7 professional versão 6.1

it worked in myth 1.8.0 Perhaps the problem now be in my myth folder. because,
I did a test myth 1.8.1.beta in a other myth folder (a back up) and it work normal.
I will reinstall the myth, perhaps bug is in my current myth folder .
