We are very pleased to announce that we will be releasing a second public beta within the next few days. Since different betas of scripts.dll 4.0 are not compatible with each other due to netcode changes, this will require server owners to update their servers with the new version as soon as possible after the release. This is a head notice to inform you about the necessary changes.

The changes that will have to be made are:
- Install the new version.
- Re-compute any anticheat.ini hashes via achash.exe. (The hash algorithm has been changed to be stronger.)
- Port/recompile any modifications. Plugins are likely binary compatible with the new version, but recompilation is recommended to be sure.

We will be distributing the necessary files for server owners tomorrow, the client version will likely be distributed via the update system the day after if no issues show up. We have no exact time for this (yet).

Note that these changes can be prepared using the files we will distribute tomorrow, but should not be run yet because players will be unable to connect until they have the new version.

Well you wouldn't have the launcher.exe if you didnt install the first beta. Why would you not want to install it? :s

i have the first beta installed, i am just saying that a separate full install whit the update included would be nice that is all.
like most of the patch for games, you wouldnt need the previus versions to patch your game to the latest update. for example: ren 1.37, TS 2.03 and so on.

Right but we're in a beta stage at the moment. Once TT gets finished then you'd have a separate installer.

The installer will also be updated. There is no guarantee that we will do the same for every update though. There is no reason to. In this beta, the installer also needed changes, so releasing the updated one makes sense.

I think we fixed a TT LE bug or two.

We're finishing up the build right now. Smile Should be there in an hour or so.

[edit]
Seems I misunderstood, jonwil has to leave and will do the last few things later today (for him), tomorrow (for me) and I'll distribute the new files as early as I can tomorrow.

Ok, the new build is ready for server owners to update their custom modifications to. In addition to the source code and mod tools, a .diff file of the changes was added so that you can apply your changes easily using a tool that can apply diff/patch files.

The new client installer is also provided for server owners to do any testing. If you are not a server owner and not going to test server modifications, you are recommended not to install these yet, since you will not be able to join any beta 1 server.

We are planning to push the updated build at Thu Oct 27 2011 00:00:00 GMT.

Are you a serverowner? No? Then that was NOT for you.

Please list the errors and the utility you are using to apply the patch. The patch is from beta1 source to beta2 source, assuming you have the beta1 source extracted and have not moved things around or removed any folders it should apply, but possibly the patch utility you use assumes the file paths in the patch file to be slightly different.

I think I may know why the patch file did not apply; I will make that change for the next release and so that you should be able to use the patch files for that.

The server should really update if they are still running beta1. It shouldn't be much work, not that much has changed.

As for still running the beta1 client; make sure that you do not run the launcher, but run game.exe (game2.exe for beta2) directly. It will not install any updates then.
