Serious Sam 3 - Update 172672 - now public - 2012-11-26
Serious Sam 3 - Update 172672 - now public - 2012-11-26

- Added a script that offers to automatically install libpci.3 on linux if it is missing.
- Fixed graphics corruption under OpenGL if game is minimized or "alt-tabbed" while it is loading content.
- Fixed screen-shot grabbing and manual save-game thumbnails not working under OpenGL.
- OpenGL library can now load even if some vendor dependent functions are missing.
- X11 libraries on Linux are now dynamically loaded, so game can properly report and error if something is missing.
- Dedicated server on Linux no longer requires X11 to be installed.
- Fixed problems with filenames of wrong case that happened only with Linux dedicated server.
- Full support for language packs in Workshop. Language mods can now work even in pure (non-moddable) version of the game, and don't require any customization from user side. Just subscribe to them.
- Workshop packages menu is now also available in non-moddable version of application (this allows enabling/disabling of language packs).
- User is now properly notified when Steam Workshop content download fails.
- Fixed issues that might have prevented some user accounts from uploading to Workshop.
- SeriousEditor now displays Steam Workshop sync progress in status bar.
- Upload to Steam Workshop command is no longer available until Steam Workshop sync is finished. Previuously, it locked up the application.
- Fixed an issue causing clients to always see weapon change on HUD at game start.
- Fixed a lockup happening if spectator cameras are linked in a closed loop. This only happened with user-made levels.
- Weapon change attempt is now correctly being indicated on HUD if performed during sprint.
- Fixed popup menus in Serious Editor sometimes going off the bottom of the screen in multimonitor setups.
- Fixed duplicate directory entries being shown in Serious Editor in file browsing for directories inside user-made .gro files.
- Added vertex merge when importing fbx meshes.
- Added facilities in Serious Editor to automate editing on entities from console scripts.
- Added cfuncs edtGetMemberValue(strUserDataPath) and edtSetMemberValue(strUserDataPath, value) used to change entity properties.
- Added cfunc edtSelectEntityPropertyByID(iEntityID).

(Yes, this is exactly the last beta, now made default. New beta coming up later today.)

Что то теперь у меня СЭМ как будто замедлился в нескоко раз! Что это может быть ?

Thank you Croteam. Now the Linux users afraid of betas should see some better performance. :) Investigating if one can make the editor work through Wine yet like with Trackmania... Since I reckon you won't or can't port it.

That's strange, xinerama isn't used for anything in this public version. I'm guessing that you've opted into publicbeta?

I see your desktop resolution is detected as 1024x768. Is that correct? Is it trying to start the game in a larger resolution? Could you please delete your SeriousSam3.ini file and restart the game.

When I start SS3 I get a message " Library libpci.so.3 is missing press OK to install or Cancel to continue". I know libpci is installed for sure but I'm getting that message every time when I start the game. Another thing, I don't know how you did it Croteam but I got performance boost from 15-25fps to almost 90fps with almost all settings to the max. Thank you and keep up the good work.

libpci.so.3 kept requesting to be installed, but would not work. I can only assume it's due to the fact that I have a 64 bit install. once I installed libpci3:i386 under ubuntu, the request stopped and the game started.
AlenL  [developer] Nov 30, 2012 @ 8:45am 
Yes, it needs the 32 bit version of libpci.
borgware Nov 30, 2012 @ 11:12am 
Hmm I can't find libpci3:i386...64bit only. There's libpciaccess0:i386 but it doesn't change anything.
AlenL  [developer] Nov 30, 2012 @ 11:41am 
Ubuntu 12.04 should have libpci3:i386 in repo. Are you sure there was no oversight?
borgware Nov 30, 2012 @ 12:51pm 
No oversight however, it works fine now, it doesn't complain about libpci missing. Strange.
