Play Test Version 2.0 via SVN


Recommended Posts

Public Testing

We've decided to make the Tiberium Crystal War 2.0 testing public.

It is very timeconsuming to find people willing to test and get them to be active on the forums and all.

So we figured it would be nice to just make it a public thing.

You can now download the client through SVN and join the testserver.

We hope you like trying it out, but keep in mind that the game is not finished at all and you may of course give suggestions.

I encourage everyone who decides to download it to register on our forums and report any issues or questions.



What you will need

TortoiseSVN program - http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html

You will need the program called Tortoise SVN to download (or Checkout/Update) the game test client.


To install (aka "Checkout") the "Tiberium Crystal War 2.0 Test Client" you need a username and password listed below:

Username: tcwtester

Password: testersonly15


Create a new folder in any location of your choice, for example: C:\MPF Games\Tiberium Crystal War 2 Test\ or even your desktop will do but NOT your Program Files or Program Files (x86) folder.


Right click the folder you created and you will see an option named "SVN Checkout" select this and a popup window will be opened.




Enter into the URL portion, this address: https://svn.multiplayerforums.com/svn/tcw/Client (right click on the link and copy it)

The screen should look like this and press OK:




Next you will be presented with a login screen where you enter the username "tcwtester" and password "testersonly15" (no quotes).



No further changes are required, press OK and it will begin to download the latest updates (about 2 GB) from the SVN Repository which may take a while depending on your internet speed.



Once done downloading, you have the latest files from SVN.

Updates to the game will be posted here in the forum. Once a new version has been submitted, simply right click the folder and click on "SVN Update" and it will download the posted update, and keep you up to date.




Keeping the Client Up2Date

Everytime we update the server and client you will need to SVN Update on your end.

If you get "Version Mismatch" or "You need Tiberium Crystal War to play here" messages when trying to join, it means your Test client is out of date.

Simply right click on the folder and choose "SVN Update" and wait for it to download the new and modified files:



Now you should be able to join the server again. If not: Please post on the forums.


Play & Test

Run the TCW2Launcher.exe file in your folder. Goto the Direct Connect tab. Enter your player name and connect to play/test.

The irc channel is on irc.cncirc.net in #TCW and #TCW2

If you get errors or conflicts in your folder then you need to perform a cleanup. This is done by right clicking on the folder and going to "TortoiseSVN->Cleanup..."



Once clicked it will open a new window where you must select all options and press OK:



Once the cleanup finished running you *should* see something like this:



If for some reason your cleanup doesn't work, then post in the forum here please.

If you are new to Tiberium Crystal War (and the Renegade W3D engine in general) you also need to run the installations for VC++ 2012 and VC++ 2013 and the DirectX Update.
You can find these in the Prerequisites folder of the checked out folder. Simply run them and install them.

The game should then definately run :)
