Trosnoth - 1.16.0

Free side-scrolling team action game.

Trosnoth is a fast-paced open source team platformer. To win the game you must capture all of the opposing team's territory.
The Trosnoth idea was conceived many years ago by a bunch of Übertweak leaders who were looking for another network game to play on camp that was low-cost, team-based, involved strategy, and was easy to teach.

Changes

Trosnoth is a fast-paced open source territory control team sidescroller. Changes since 1.15.2:
  • New prettier explosions for grenade & shoxwave.
  • Guns no longer run out after a time limit, but have limited ammo and a key to buy more ammo.
  • Active guns can be cycled through using mouse wheel. This can be remapped.
  • When a player dies, they keep a portion of their ammo for all guns.
  • Added rail gun with long range and near-instant speed.
  • Added piercing gun, with shots passing through players and one wall.
  • Added mines which explode on enemy proximity.
  • Added detonation beam which can be used to detonate mines from a distance.
  • Added ‘Meandering Menage’ gun.
  • New ‘Juggernaut’ scenario, where juggernaut gets extra health and one of the players who hit the juggernaut becomes the next juggernaut.
  • New ‘Space Vampire’ scenario, with one vampire who’s invisible unless in dark enemy zones.
  • New ‘Free Flow’ map which is very open, particularly for use in Orb Chase.
  • Shop menu now shows the cost of upgrades.
  • Added close button to shop menu.
  • Hosted LAN games default to being named after the hosting player.
  • Scenario winners are now visible for a period after the scenario ends.
  • Zone letters are now assigned symmetrically on both sides of the map.
  • Zone letters are now displayed offset from the orb, for readability.
  • Elephant, vampire and juggernaut are now removed when a scenario ends.
  • Scenario classes no longer need to be registered in as many places.
  • LAN games now reset coins etc. when lobby phase is over.
  • Server web interface now defaults to part 8000, with a command-line option to override this.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented players remapping keys which were assigned to ‘unknown action’.
  • Fixed a bug where stationary objects sometimes appeared to jiggle when you moved relative to them.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in several resyncs at the start of certain game scenarios.
  • Removed inconsistently-enforced server constraint requiring all users to have different preferred nicks.
  • Minor update to zone graphics.
  • Minimap disruption is temporarily disabled until new team upgrades UI is completed.
  • Improved logging in certain circumstances.
  • Various other minor bug fixes.

    Hi, this is the first post that I have posted on pygame.org.

    I am a developer of this game, I work on the AIs (Please don't comment on them, a new AI version has been released and is much better than the current one...).

    I first played this game about 1.5 years ago, it was AWESOME! There is much more statergum than that meets the eye, the difference between taking a zone and not taking one is sometimes the difference of 1 pixel (Which zone your in!)! At UberTweak we play with 4v4 or higher, 8v8 is a pretty good game size. Playing over the internet can be quite laggy because *cough* of inefficient coding of the networking modules *cough*. It is also an awesome feeling to hear one teams roar of success when defeating another teams ;)
