Can't download anything inside the game

I can't use Wesnoth 0.9.6 to play anything concrete. I mean I can't
1. Install any campaign
2. Create or observe any multiplayer game
For all of these I simply see a 4xxxxxxKB/xxxxKB in the download status. The big number is counting down, of course.

There are server problems, and that should go in technical support anyway.

Don't agree. The results of loading is wield enough to make me believe one can use the network play function to hack my pc.
BTW, wesnoth crashed after I pressed "Cancel"

I can play single player just fine, but when I try to play multiplayer, it loads just fine, and then doesn't show any player names or games.

I could play multiplayer just fine with 9.5

I can't see the new unit portraits in the unit descriptions. Why?

I messed up the Windows binary. The version available has a bug where networking doesn't work properly. This has been reported by numerous people. :oops:

I actually realized my mistake immediately after uploading, but apparently I didn't upload my new version properly. :oops:

Anyhow, new, fixed version is here: http://www.wesnoth.org/files/wesnoth-0.9.6.exe

It'd be appreciated if someone could replicate to Sourceforge.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks Dave.

To other posters on this topic - it might be a good idea to specify which platform you are having the problem with, to avoid causing unnecessary angst!! :lol: :lol:

Done.

I've also created an xdelta between 0.9.6 and this new version:

What version comes after v0.9.9? 1.0 or 0.9.10? If 1.0 it must be almost bug-free:)

And really, have pity on our and your bandwidth. Recompressed with p7zip (default compression quality, command line was "7z a wesnottest.7z /home/muxec/Downloads/wesnoth-0.9.6") sources take only 32.9MB instead of 38.7MB. The extraction speed is almost the same. With ultra quality (parameters were "-t7z -m0=lzma -mx=9 -mfb=64 -md=32m -ms=on") the archieve is 32.4MB, but it takes more time to compress (still fast to decompress).

Also most of the decompressed size is from i18n. As most of the users use no more than 2 languages it'd be cool to put English only version as first in list on downloads page. Hope this will be noted in v1.0 package :)

This would need extra software to use the archive.

If you just look data, image take 27MB, music 10MB, translation 13 MB.
but if you recompress (gzip -9) this datas,
image take 20MB, music 10MB and translation 5MB.
I'ts not much and it avoid user to understand an english notice
to download and install theyre native language pack.

On the other hand, you can gain more space with a pack for deaf people.
