[outdated] Damn Small Xonotic

#1
I am way too impatient to wait for an official "light" version of Xonotic, so I decided to roll my own. Well, not quite "own": basically, I bastardized the original Damn Small Nexuiz script to work with Xonotic 0.1 Preview release. (for those who don't know what is it, here you go. It's basically a striped down version of Nexuiz, a life saver for those poor guys like me.)

For the "Balance testing" release:
Linux 32bit
Linux 64bit
Windows 32bit
Windows 64bit
Sources

Note: I didn't have a chance to test 64bit builds.
Note 2: OS X builds are not available. Sorry.

The size is about ~80mb. Not so "damn small", but still better than the original distribution.
This is far from perfection yet. If you're crazy enough to test it, please share your experiences.

Sources: if you want to build your own DSX, extract this archive into your Xonotic directory, optionally customize dsx_script.sh and run it. Run dsx_package.sh to generate zip packages. This script was tested on 0.1.0preview, but it MIGHT work on git/future versions of Xonotic with some modifications. Note: this will modify your Xonotic installation!

Oh and, Note 3: builds contain the nexcompat package. If you don't need it, you'll have to build DSX by yourself (see above).

This is far from perfection yet. If you're crazy enough to test it, please share your experiences.

Hey akari thanks for the small xonotic it works better but i see other players like painted boxes can you fix that?

It's made on purpose, those boxes are alot faster to render => better FPS. If you really don't like that, comment out the relevant stuff in dsx_script.sh (see the sources) and rebuild. Or just import player models from Xonotic.

Very cool! This will help me when my desktop is out of inaccessible and I am playing Xonotic on my laptop!

Updated, now based on the "Balance testing" autobuild. Sources are already on the server, other builds will eventually end up there as soon as they are archived and uploaded; URLs may not function meanwhile.

EDIT: all builds are on the server now

Ok, it looks like I have completely screwed textures up in this release. Took download links down, fixed versions will be up in a about a hour by the same URLs. Will update the topic title when fully done.

Hello. Smile
Thanks for this adaptation.
I didn't know Damn Small Nexuiz.
I tried all the games to compare (except new maps), including "balance testing", on my windows computer.
The high frame rate is perfect!
(I might try other parameters, because it's too much castrated for me.)
Nice job !

Hello, I cannot wait, however, the download links take you to the dodging bullets clan homepage, which houses no down loads, can someone pease post it on media fire or somewhere like that?
Thanks!

I would also really appreciate a re-up. Recently I've managed to fry my graphics card, and I've only been able to replace it with a very cheap low end one. Even running on the lowest graphics, I still don't quite get the desirable framerate I would like on Xonotic. Besides, this also saves having to look up, research and tweak every little thing. :p

I fucked the redirect up, /static was affected. Fixed, the downloads should be available now.

dsx_script.sh does not work with current Xonotic version (datanum=20110906). The script runs fine, but afterwards Xonotic does not run anymore, but prints error »cannot load any menu skin«.

guys did you realize that Akari isnt working on that anymore?
<Samual> I am the most unprofessional developer ever
<bluez> halogene, you make awesome music, but you have no clue about ctf.
<Halogene> I didn't know mappers include some mysterious waypoints so members of the BOT clan can navigate a map?
<divVerent> if you don't pay for a premium account, your movement speed is limited to 100qu/s

I changed the thread name to [outdated] Damn Small Xonotic. The previous name, [updated] Damn Small Xonotic: Fixed builds available, was very misleading.
