Classic Nexuiz is a fast-paced 3D deathmatch game with high-end and complex graphics effects. It is intended to be played over the Internet or over a local network. Several different game types, such as classic deathmatch, team deathmatch and capture the flag are available. It also supports a single-player mode and playing against the computer. The game brings deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action, keeping itself away from the current trend of realistic shooters. This package installs the client to play the game. This game was originally released as "Nexuiz", but is now referred to as "Classic Nexuiz" since the Nexuiz name was re-used for a non-free game for consoles.

    2011-10-06 - Simon McVittie <> nexuiz (2.5.2+dp-2) unstable; urgency=low * Switch nexuiz, nexuiz-server to arch:all * Enable pristine-tar in gbp.conf * Mention in the description/copyright file that this is "Classic Nexuiz" * Upload to unstable

    2011-07-15 - Simon McVittie <> nexuiz (2.5.2+dp-1) experimental; urgency=low * Remove the outdated copy of the DarkPlaces engine found here, replacing it with a script based on the one in quake3 to run darkplaces or darkplaces-server with appropriate options - remove README.source which hasn't been relevant since 2.5.2-3 - remove patch - replace orig.tar.gz with one containing only icons and COPYING, taken from DarkPlaces svn - remove -dbg packages (install darkplaces-dbg or darkplaces-server-dbg if it crashes) - unlike the version of DarkPlaces formerly in this package, darkplaces is patched to link against libraries in the usual way (Closes: #465195) * Install large, high-quality icons for the desktop entry (extracted from nexuiz.ico from the DarkPlaces svn repository) so it looks nice in GNOME 3 * Add a .gitignore * Add myself to Uploaders * Upload to experimental for now, while darkplaces gets through NEW

    2011-03-25 - Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <> nexuiz (2.5.2-5) unstable; urgency=low * Use debhelper 8 to build the source package * Bump build-dependency to debhelper (>= 8) * Rewrite debian/rules

    2010-08-12 - Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <> nexuiz (2.5.2-4) unstable; urgency=low [ Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert ] * The Nexuiz download URL has changes. Correct URL in copyright and control files [ Evgeni Golov ] * Remove Gerfried Fuchs from Uploaders as per own request.

    2010-07-29 - Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <> nexuiz (2.5.2-3) unstable; urgency=low * Use dpkg 3.0 quilt format for packaging * Drop build dependency on quilt. dpkg does everything for us * Update to standards version 3.9.1 without any changes * Fix a typo in README.Debian * Add ${misc:Depends} in Depends-field of each binary package. Thanks to lintian!

    2009-10-22 - Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <> nexuiz (2.5.2-2) unstable; urgency=low * Add debian/ to fetch and strip the .orig.tar.gz from the upstream Subversion repository * Migrate from Subversion to Git and Update Vcs-* fields in control file * Build depend on debhelper 7. We're using dh_prep instead of dh_clean -k in debian/rules, now and dh_prep requires debhelper 7 * Drop obsolete patches: * 10_ambiguous_keyboard_bindings.patch: It used to patch documentation files which are now in nexuiz-data * 20_nostrip_support.patch: It removed the strip command from the upstream makefile, but we're building the debug targets, now. * Use absolute path in nexuiz.desktop to avoid problems with users who have a modified $PATH that could point to another nexuiz binary. * Install NEWS.Debian also in nexuiz-server to inform users that the "pro" mode has gone. This might be important to Nexuiz server administrators
