Infrastructure changes include



  • get latest Zero-K lobby to play
  • there are no more "springies", instead each battleroom has their capabilities
  • when hosting, you pick the game type (chickens, teams, FFA etc)
  • friend and ignore lists are stored in server (and were reset)
  • fixed lots of Zero-K lobby and springie issues

Please check !help for new commands.

You can easilly change engine, game (incl. rapid tag) etc. of your room without any "rehost"

Use !game zk:dev to host local $VERSION for debugging/developing purposes.

This change simplified code base significantly (-13 000 lines), fixed lots of bugs and makes future changes easier.

Matchmaker will also take advantage of the known game types, and corresponding matchmaker games can be optionally offered to idlers in rooms.

Other changes


  • boxes were removed from lobby (defined inside maps)
  • you can only set your team in lobby when its not running and is not managed - your team reflects actual in-game team in lobby
  • !type command allows you to switch between teams, ffa etc modes
  • all battle room commands lost "vote" variant, instead vote is auto offered where applicable
  • ZKL fixes include: missions failing, download progress bars missing, fullscreen/spring interference, battle bar not updating

Does this mean starting ZKL will instantly reset them? If so where can I find the file containing my friend and ignore lists so I can create a backup?

It should be in ZeroKLobbyconfig.xml

This seems pretty cool, I'll need to play with it a bit. How easy is this to extend for tournaments and such?

ZKL still not remembering that I do not want it fullscreen, but maybe it's just me wanting it.

not able to replicated but I am still not seeing download bar. even though lobby say I do not have map/game

does my lobby auto updated? I download a fresh install just in case but still.

Download bar is on need-to-know basis.
If you start game and dont have a map you will see it..
Try some random mission.

Without lobby connection, website cannot send data properly to ZKL. You need to be connected for this to work.

does that mean admins can now not initiate votes anymore?

It does. But it does feel needed at times. I will add a generic !vote command to make anything into a vote.

Works for me. Haven't manually downloaded a new lobby yet. Not sure if that has any effect.
