Description

I thought development was dead... apparently not, there's even a 'Next' branch with constant updates.

~~~

Name: AssaultCube

Open-Source: Yes

Homepage: http://assault.cubers.net/

Source: https://github.com/assaultcube/AC/commits/master

Description:
AssaultCube is a FREE, multiplayer, first-person shooter game, based on the CUBE engine.

Taking place in realistic environments, with fast, arcade gameplay, it's addictive and fun!

With efficient bandwidth usage, it's low-latency and can even run over a 56Kbps connection.
It's tiny too, weighing in at a lightweight 40 MB package available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
On the correct settings, it can even run on old hardware (Pentium III and above).

There may be a branch with updates, but Solus uses versioned release archives, not the master.zip file from GitHub. The last version released on GitHub is from 2013.

Triage may decide that an older release with active development is okay for inclusion, or maybe not. If not, there is also AssaultCube Reloaded with last release from January that you may look at requesting: https://github.com/acreloaded/acr/releases

I know how the packages are made.

I try to make package requests for programs that have signs of life. The release my be older, and that's fine, but some active development may lead to newer releases.

I've been keeping tabs on AC-R. It's nice, and has some really cool designs, but there hasn't been any development for some time. Plus the game is still in Beta and has a few immersion breaking bugs, such as sound completely cutting out randomly.

Until this sees a new release it will not be packaged. I see no reason not to include it when that happens.

I've poked them to see if a new release is possible.

They've had a sufficient amount of time to ship a stable release, marking as wontfix.
