View Full Version : AMX Mod X Next Release Info

07-16-2005, 03:34
I am hoping to release Metamod 1.18 and AMX Mod X 1.1-RC1 within the next week or so. This update will be an action-packed release with all sorts of new goodies, including an official AMX Mod X editor, a brand new installer, and an AMX Mod X core that is lighter on CPU usage.

What does this mean for amxx scipters?
A few quick updates for what to expect from 1.1-RC1:

Mysql module has been rewritten. It is now DBI only, and AMX Mod backward compatibility has been removed. It was a clutch preventing some better design ideas.

The following functions have been deprecated:
plugin_modules/require_module - These have been replaced with an automatic module detection system. They no longer do anything. When you #include a module's include file, it will now automatically be added to a list of required modules.
read_dir - This has been deprecated in favor of open_dir, next_dir, and close_dir. They are much faster.
mysql_* - These natives have been removed entirely. Use DBI.
Array Module - Deprecated, no longer available with the base install.
Should have no issues with SHmod.

Edit: Removed my previous comments the infomation provided wasn't clear.

I upgraded all the mysql stuff to the "DBI" code a long time ago, when I first ported it to amxx. It should continue to work fine.
