Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

As some people have already seen I have setup some "public test servers". I will try to keep one running all the time and use another one for development. You can all join and abuse the servers as much as you want. They are designed to be played with v0.2.1 but are quite compatible. After joining th...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

So, my plan for the next version is to have mostly bugfixes and quality of life improvements. Apart from that about 80% of the code has now been ported to Linux. A first version of a dedicated server is complete and runs on Windows, Linux and also on ARM architecture. I plan to work on a server vers...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Custom user interfaces

A lot of people asked for different user interfaces. I didn't spend any time on that, but starting with version 0.2 the user interface is at least customizable. To change the user interface follow these steps: 1) Download the "unpacked" UI. Either from here: http://zedonline.sourceforge.io/ui.zip (t...
