Well, it’s been well over a month since the last update so I figured one was due.  There are a lot of changes trying to polish a few existing features, as well as some new ones. A new update should be out in due time (a lot sooner next time hopefully) with some more features I’ve been wanting to add for quite some time.

Well Ace of Spades 0.58 is out now so it’s time to release an update for Spadille.  It’s been updated to support the shotgun and new sounds files. Admin tools have also been added allowing server admins to easy manage the new ban lists and admin lists. One particular feature is banlist syncing, where the global blacklist (seen here) is appended to the existing banlist. Any subsequent syncs will appropriately add any new bans, as well as remove any bans which have been removed from the global blacklist.

A follow-up release will be out in due time to take advantage of even more of the new features in 0.58, so stay tuned.

Change Log:

  • Added admin tools (ban list/admin list manager)
  • Attempting to join an already-joined game focuses game window

Spadille 1.4.6 is now available for download.  This update consists more of a interface makeover compared to 1.4.5 along with a few bug fixes.  The player count bug where it was displaying several thousand players online has since been fixed (hopefully that will be real someday).

There is now a tabbed interface which currently divideds the server list into 3 sections, Public (general server listing), favorites, and recent (history).  I think the names are pretty obvious.  Search, filters, and stats have been moved to the right side of the server list for easier access.

A new release probably isn’t too far into the future depending on when Ace of Spades 0.55 is released. When a new Spadille version is released, you’ll be able to see the new update wizard :D
