Original post was:

At the moment I’m playing the GOG.com version of TWP. The version numbers and the changes are confusing me a little bit. So I thought I create a new topic. :slight_smile:

#5

Those are the version I downloaded from GOG:

  • 1296.849 (2017-03-29) initial version
  • 1307.858 (2017-04-04) see https://blog.thimbleweedpark.com/patch_notes
  • 1309.859 (2017-04-06)
  • 1316.862 (2017-04-07)
  • 1323.866 (2017-04-12)
  • 1343.881 (2017-05-09) added Russian language support (text only) (from GOG changelog)

And yes, you should hang on to the first one as demo mode only works in this one.


#6

Thanks. I’ve updated my list above.

@geckoespresso: Are you sure that you have the build 861 and not 862? If not, there were two builds in a row?


#7

[quote=“Someone, post:6, topic:661”]

[/quote]That list seems right. I have the same 8 versions from GOG.
I also wonder what exactly changed from each version other than the sparsely official announcements.


#8

I probably missed one version from GOG: I think remembering one having an upgrade from a previous, to me unknown, version and it may have been something with 86x. The patch was quite small, maybe about 24 MiB but I’m not 100% sure.


#9

Build 862 was made 1 day after 861 and it only fixed a issue where you could make a copy of the map, but never pick it up, getting the game into an odd state.


#10

Thanks! I’ve updated my post above.


#11

Either we missed 2 versions on GOG, or Steam has 2 more: https://steamdb.info/depot/569861/manifests/


#12

I would assume that Steam has 2 more versions: You can upload a new version on Steam faster than a new version on Gog. If we can trust the manifest then Ron uploaded on 1. and 3. april three versions in a row. So I guess that only one of them appeared on GOG. But I will add the Steam versions to the list, thanks for the link!

EDIT: Does the Steam client show the current “manifest ID”?


#13

The Steam and GOG builds go up at the same time and are both instantly live. What can slow down GOG is if you’re not using their client. In that case, a human at GOG needs to take what I upload and make installers out of it. That can take a day and might account for the missing build numbers.

#14

Odd. I get to name the Win/Mac versions using the GOG web UI, but I have to upload the Linux build to their FTP server and they do all the work, So they are not naming the Linux versions consistently.


#15

Yes. The Linux versions from other games have this different (and odd) version scheme too. I don’t know why. If you download TWP from the web frontend, it states “1.0.919” as the version, but the downloaded file is named “gog_thimbleweed_park_2.6.0.7.sh”. I am only a user of GOG, but maybe you as a dev could ask them, why they use this numbering scheme. (My guess is, that the Linux versions are done by a different person/department.)

btw: All Linux versions are starting with 2.x, even if the game is version 1.


#16

A GOG developer gives an (unsatisfying) answer in this thread: “Difference between Windows and Linux version”.

Basically, those version numbers are not about the game but about the GOG installer.


#17

The problem is, that the version numbers don’t give a hint on the included game version. (In contrast to the Windows and Mac versions.)


#18

Version numbering always needs to be complicated and obscure or you aren’t doing it right.


#19

I suggest all version numbers be git commit hashes

Which VCS is used for TWP internally?
#20

I’ve added it to the version description. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

But the idea isn’t that bad: If you chose the md5 or sha hash of the binary and/or the resource file as the version number, each player could verify if he has an unmodified and thus a working game. This would be useful especially for users of the DRM free (GOG) versions (but it would be handy for Steam users too…).

(btw: If you send me the hashes, I will add them here in the lists.)
