Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead version 0.9 Ma released.
« on: November 15, 2013, 05:40:53 AM »
The Ma release is characterized by polish and preparedness. We've put more effort into stabilizing Cataclysm than in any previous release, and taken the time to support saves from 0.8. There's loads of new content - items ranging from survivor suits to RPG-7s, new mutations and new vehicles, loads of recipes including the ability to smith your own tools from scratch, and a few new enemies to round it out.

The release is available from the usual locations:
Windows SDL: http://assets.cataclysmdda.com/downloads/windows_binaries/cddasdl-v0.9.zip
Windows GDI: http://assets.cataclysmdda.com/downloads/windows_binaries/cddacurses-v0.9.zip
Linux SDL: http://assets.cataclysmdda.com/downloads/linux_binaries/cddasdl-v0.9.tar.gz

This has happened before, and it's sad, because I really want to trust you guys, but... so-called 'Stable' builds have the worst bugs. Like, oh my god.

You can't clean broken windows. The most fundamental Construction action in Cataclysm straight up crashes the game to desktop. Good job, everyone.

Confirmed here as well CTD on broken window cleanup, another CTD on trying to board up a window.  No idea what file or quote from a file to post but if someone can direct me to the file I will copy whatever I need to.

More effort than any previous release?

People have been posting about the CTD on construction for days, and it hasn't been fixed.

Most of the developers are Linux developers, sadly this lends to Windows releases lagging a little since bugs tend to crop up in Windows for little reason. Please make, or add comments to, an issue noting what happened and how for any crashes. We will fix them as soon as possible. Sorry for any and all uncaught crashes that crop up >.< Also, I thank everyone for reporting issues as they develop as that is the only way to thoroughly test a game with as large a scope as this.

Sorry to Linux users, Unity3D's webplayers do not work on Linux as far as I know.

Poor guy didn't read the other posts.

For real though,  thanks devs. Really looking forward to all the new stuff once the construction crash gets sorted out. Y'all are doing an amazing job.

Till then I'll be biting people on the guts in Dorf Fort adventure mode.

So psyched to try out the new version. Any idea when the Mac version will get released? Is there a way to run any of the present version through terminal or something? (Sorry, I really don't know how to do terminal or compile or any technical stuff)

People have been posting about the CTD on construction for days, and it hasn't been fixed.
It was reported on the experimental, and there was no reports from, no confirmation on (and we couldn't reproduce), and no details associated with the Release Candidate.

The fact that almost every bug filed for the Release candidate was from someone downloading and playing the experimental (and some 0.8) made the whole process quite difficult, and we need to figure out a better way to handle this next time and get people to actually report problems for the actual RC instead of a different version.

For now, we're trying to launch a hotfix ASAP, but I don't have any tools for developing on Windows (it's windows-specific) so we're trying to get one of our windows developers to weigh in.

So psyched to try out the new version. Any idea when the Mac version will get released? Is there a way to run any of the present version through terminal or something? (Sorry, I really don't know how to do terminal or compile or any technical stuff)
When we get a Mac developer who can make sure it compiles correctly. So possibly never, hopefully sooner than that.

Maybe this will help in correcting problems with the windows build.
