QuakeWorld client change
During the years we have had to suffer from the ancient remnant from the 1996 and it's modifications. What I'm talking about is the game client (or clients). All of them are really ancient, bad looking and using not-so-great renderer, not to mention how limiting the .BSP can be when it comes to performance. Luckily enough, Qqshka had enough with the ezQuake and decided to make the MVDSV connectable via Warsov game client, since it has more modern renderer, hence making it better performing too.
We'll be updating few servers during the night to support this new feature, and we can start using the new WarsovQW gameclient. The MVDSV won't be connectable via normal QW-clients anymore, since all the upcoming client development will be on Warsov client. This way we can finally get rid of the buggy remnant from 1996.

With this update, everyone will be using the same client version always, which makes running tournaments easier. Also Warsov client is better performing so problematic maps will not make the performance suffer as much it does with the normal QW-clients like ezQuake.

You can download the modified Warsov client for QW from our project site:

The servers that will be updated during the night:

There could be a few bugs left, feel free to report them as needed.

Some people enjoy telling the world that they are a above average intelligence by pointing out April Fool's Jokes like that. Although, by doing it they show they aren't.

one could make a better april's fool by actually making the QW-DEV page

Well, half of the news is really true. MVDSV (from branch) really accepts Warsov clients since revision 949, but I don't think anyone other than the dev(s) have tried it.

They haven't because it's a FUCKING BROKEN LINK.

Please, if you post news on main page, at least have the downright common sense and decency to make sure you are linking to valid pages.... :////////

It is? You mean the fake link I gave on the news item just to make it look "realistic", but maybe I would have needed a fake page there after all like cpe said

If someone wants to compile MVDSV with Warsov support, then get the sources from Qqshka's branch on our project site and compile it yourself:

I'm not going to compile it, or make beta release either. And the last thing I'll do is to replace working QW servers with that "mess"
