Version Questions

Trunk is different to dev and stable versions right?

What happens if you are playing a trunk or dev version and an update happens on your playing server?

How has the latest trunk version changed the gameplay meta?

Re: Version Questions

Trunk/dev is the latest version of the game, usually it is stable enough.

You will continue the game in your version, but when you save and load it, you will get a prompt to upgrade to the latest version. Sometimes (or is it on some servers) your game is stopped automatically and when you load it, it is automatically updated to the latest version.

Who cares about meta, it is a SP game where there are very hard and very easy combos.

Re: Version Questions

So with regards to this page:

https://crawl.develz.org/wordpress/howto

released = stable

and dev = trunk

If you choose a server running released version does that mean it is not updated as frequently? Or are all servers updated fairly regularly?
