Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
Okay everyone, here's the release candidate for Diaspora R1.1 

R1.1 is meant to be the version of Diaspora we wanted to release originally but couldn't. Stuff we'd planned had to be cut out because we simply didn't have the staff or the time to implement or test it. The biggest change you'll notice is that we finally added the briefing animations we'd always wanted. Thanks a lot to David cgc for those (We should thank Matthew Haley for the DRADIS screens used as the basis of our animations). We've also ironed out a bunch of the bugs that were still present in 1.0.4. Hopefully no new ones have sprung up in their place.

If there are no new bugs reported, we'll bump this one up to the official patch release very soon. We're also planning a new installer for those who haven't got the game which will install the game and patch 1.1 at the same time.

As with previous patches, this patch does not require you to have earlier versions of the patch in order to work (and will in fact delete earlier versions).

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
The plan to have them is many years old, but it was only once David cgc joined the team that we actually had someone with the time to make them.

That said, his animations turned out much better than my original impression of what they'd look like.

Finally got around to playing the new version, and I'd like to add my own praise for those sweet briefing animations.

It's only the release candidate, I'll highlight it as soon as it goes gold. We've already had one bug report so I'd like to have that issue fixed first.

Thanks, everybody. I'm glad the briefings well-received. Those were a lot of fun to do.

Just finished replaying the campaign with 1.1 and didn't encounter any bugs, myself! Seriously, David cgc, those briefing animations really complete the experience. Fantastic job.

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
Hey karajorma,

There seems to be a windows build, while there are no Linux or Mac downloads available ("coming soon")... Perhaps you could at least post a link to source code for us to build ourselves

Thanks

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
That is no longer necessary. You can use one of the mainline FSOpen releases to play Diaspora these days.

You can just grab a recent FreeSpace Open nightly build for Linux or Mac in the Nightly Builds subforum and it'll run Diaspora fine. Diaspora runs on FreeSpace Open.

Problem is that there's no download of 1.1 that doesn't come as a Windows executable yet.

So is Diaspora's development only done with specific members?

And sorry, I misunderstood your question. I thought it referred to the engine executable, not the patch installer.

Apparently the internet is currently down for most of the province I live in. So I can't post the required files but if someone wants to 7zip the files up you only really need the new files in Data/Movies and the 1.1 VP file.

True, but anyone can help us develop the code. People can apply to join the team for other reasons by looking at the recruitment post.

And anyone can mod Diaspora themselves. Everything is under Creative Commons afterall
