The main problems are the desyncs. AdressSanitizer wouldn't help here, because it is used to examine memory leaks

That's a pity. I'm really wondering where the desyncs come from, most of them are not in build19...

Do we still have release-critical bugs? Launchpad does not look so bad.

Imho: Yes. The desynchs of replays and multiplayer mode are very annoying. They are now concerning the autocrat win condition as well, which isn't really the case in build19. There they are rather concerning the colletors win condition.

Furthermore it would be nice if the Frisians would gain some more strength...

Frisians are marked as 'experimental', i wouldn't vote for any change to this tribe in build20.

Yes, the desyncs are the main show stopper(s). Everyone could help with this though: Notabilis has a branch which should help find the culprit(s). Unfortunately there are currently no windows build(s) available face-sad.png

What should be done with the branch? Playtesting? With networking? Something else?

Yes, playtesting Networkgames... and every player should use that branch.

As soon a desync happen, every player has to upload (attach) the newest savegame and the matching *.wse file to the bug report Please provide also the OS, architecture and widelands language setting.

Tomorrow i will try to be in the multiplayer lobby the whole day with this branch...

I guess that ticking the "save syncstream" in settings, before playing is also desirable. Is there a difference between release build and debug builds?

I don't know... i will try a release build, just because i am on a very slow mashine this weekend.

Yeah, but actually it wouldn't be so hard to give them some more meaningful improvements in order to make them strong enough. So not doing this before build20 could be like missing an easy opportunity...

And by the way: The AI makes now some terrible mistakes which it didn't do in build19...
