I didn't say 2.1 is crap, I said it breaks savegames, and is lacking other features. I see there was a slight miswording though--I will redo it, and start poll over. However, I didn't state a 'release', I said 2.1 beta 5 or 2.2 beta 1. Either way, we are going to have another beta, it just depends on which version we do the beta from. I have been playing 2.2 (trunk+ FMVpatch) SP game, and as I encounter bugs/issues, that is what I work on. For 2.1 (branch), IMO, it is *not* worth even playing the SP game. You can't even compare them, the difference the FMVs bring is simply huge. That is mainly why I do not think 2.1 is worth it to continue to work on/be released On the MP front, since 2.2 & 2.1 are pretty much the same codewise, there is no real difference here. > http://forums.wz2100.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2188 > > > > The reasons have (more or less) already been discussed on this list > > already. > > > > But let me add that savegames are a very good debugging tool, and *if* we > > release a 2.1 beta 5 that will break savegames since beta 4, and trunk as > > well, there will be no easy way to load those games up, and see if the > same > > issue is present in trunk or not. > > 2.1_beta5 would add the gateway section back to savegames, right? > And that would make them unable to load in trunk?

Yes.
