The code presented on github when you go to Meridian's repository should always be the latest commit.  If you're using git on your computer and have Meridian's branch saved as a remote, then
Code: [Select]
git remote update
git pull
will automatically pull the latest commit into the branch on your computer.

You can also check src/version.h, the date of the last commit is usually in there.

Perfect!, thanks, compiling :)

EDIT:

Where is the site to ask for help in the compiling process?

Effective immediately, I put OXCE+ development on hold for uncertain amount of time.

Once the atmosphere gets friendly again and the community is able to cut off cancerous elements, I'll be happy to return...

Great to see you again, Meridian! Welcome back. I was really afraid that you would completely abandon the project.

Glad you are back!

Here are a few problems with the previous engine release. Haven't tested them on the new one yet. Also listed here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5818.0.html

1. If earnings and monthly income exceed 2^31 (2 147 483 648), there's a warning that you need to sell something to avoid taking credit. The game continues as before and money don't wrap around to negative. Doesn't occur in vanilla of OXCE. See the attached savegame: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=5818.0;attach=35249 (Observed for X-COM Files, but happens the same without mods.)

2. During compilation from source cmake checks that yaml-cpp version should be above or below 0.5.2. But that no longer seems to work — oxce3.5-plus-proto branch refuses to build with 0.5.1.

3. Quick search in inventory may give false positives, especially for single-letter queries. For example find "Bone Club" for "w". Observed on Gentoo Linux with "Extended+-3.9c-61d22e5-2017-10-10-xenial-x86_64" build from lxnt.wtf. See the attached savegame: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=5818.0;attach=35411 (requires X-Com Files mod).

4. I've made a patch that allows case-insensisitive search for non-English locales. I replaced every
towupper(c)
with
toupper(c, std::locale(""))
It uses the case conversion rules from the default system locale. Tested only for Unicode Russian, but should work for any Unicode system. If you are interested, the patch is here: https://github.com/MeridianOXC/OpenXcom/commit/31594f7c7e45bf0c1e0868975ef6da67b6827650

1. will be fixed

2. I don't have much experience with that, but I haven't changed anything... if it works with OXC/OXCE, it should work with OXCE+ too

3. In the inventory, the search also considers weapon category... so you can search for everything that is "underwater" or "plasma" or "fire damage".

Bone club has following categories, and matches "w" from "Underwater"
STR_BAT_CAT_STUN: "Dmg: Daze"
STR_BAT_CAT_UNDERWATER: "Underwater"
STR_BAT_CAT_0G: "0-G"
STR_BAT_CAT_MOSTLY_HARMLESS: "Mostly Harmless"

Also it ignores alien artifacts... so if you search for heavy plasma, but you don't have it researched yet, it won't find it.

4. It's not a 100% fix either... but I guess better than what we have now... it will just be harder to explain why it doesn't work in some cases... I'll add this in the (near) future.

On my current game I updated from oxce+ of 10/10/17 v3.9c to v3.10a of 02/01/18. I was at the briefing screen of land site 53 and when I played the mission none of my proximity grenades worked or smoke grenades that had the option instant grenades on. However on the next mission crash site 77 everything seems to be fine. The battlescape save is from land site 53 and the test save is from crash site 77. Just out of curiosity what could have caused this minor glitch?

Yankes expanded some of the features around explosive fuses and proximity mine triggering, and that update happened after the 10-10-17 OXCE+. I'd suggest not upgrading OXCE+ in the middle of a mission for reasons like this.

I was thinking it was something like that as usually I only update from the Geoscape, but thanks for the info.

They have gray square - fuse is not triggered yet. Could send ruleset of this grenade too? One goal of my change criteria was that old config do not change its behavior.
