It’s been a while since we shared news with you. It’s not because we had nothing to say, we simply didn’t have time for it.
Currently, we are working actively on the OGS Mahjong 2 and soon we’ll tell you a lot about it . Right now, we’ll tell you about the latest improvements of the current OGS Mahjong.
First of all, we’ve fixed most of the known problems with running OGS Mahjong under Linux.
Also, the game will receive a Hindi translation (thanks to Abhijeet Pokhriyal).
The main feature of the new version is online rating. Now, OGS Mahjong player will be able not only to store his results locally, but also share them with the world. You can try it out already. The statistics server is up and running and we invite you to test it.
In order to do it, you’ll need to take two steps. First, register on the statistics website.
Second, download the unstable verstion of the game with the online rating support:
- OGS Mahjong 1.0.5 for Windows – ogs-mahjong-1.0.5-windows32.exe
- OGS Mahjong 1.0.5 for Linux – ogs-mahjong-1.0.5-linux32.tar.lzma and ogs-mahjong-1.0.5-linux64.tar.lzma
The users of Ubuntu, Debian and Mint linux distributions can use our unstable repository:
APT-line: deb http://packages.opengamestudio.org unstable ogs
apt-get install ogs-mahjong
After installing and launching the game, open the settings menu, go to the “Game” tab and enable the online mode, then enter your username and password. After that, the game uploads you results to the statistics server each time you play. You can view it on the website and inside the game.
If you don’t want to use online rating, simply disable the online mode and the game will continue to keep your results locally, as it was before.
