3698 Hotfix

Hello Commanders,

We just released an hot fix (3698) for the AI taking over the player in the ladder, which was not suppose to happen. This hot fix should also fix the no rush timer enhancement from 3697 . It wasn’t working due to the new executable that wasn’t correctly shipped in.

Some people have been asking to add an option for the addition of coloured pseudo in the lobby chat, we got that covered, but the change still need some fine-tuning (which might take some time). Thus it will be introduced in the next patch.

Thanks for the feedback.

Happy Hunting,
The Game Dev Team

Game Patch 3697 Released

Greetings Commanders! IceDreamer reporting…

Today sees a very special occasion. Due to real life circumstances, the time I’ve been able to personally spend coding and curating the game’s code-base has been much smaller the last few months. Thanks to that, a new approach was required, one where I took a back-seat, big-picture view and encouraged regular contributors and testers to not only continue their usual brilliant help, but to create, review, test, curate, merge, and assemble the patch itself between themselves. They rose to the occasion magnificently, and I am extremely proud of what this team of volunteers has accomplished: A true community-led patch.

The changelog is impressive, and can be found here. Highlights include:
– The ability to double-click walls to select them
– Improved performance
– AI takeover to minimize disconnect impact

Please direct any feedback to the dedicated forum thread

Enjoy the carnage, Commanders!

IceDreamer out.

Upcoming game patch 3697

Hello Commanders!

It’s been quite some time since we had our last game patch.
If my memory doesn’t trick me then the last one was probably last December actually.

Some of you may have noticed the lack of time that Icedreamer can spend on the FAF project and in order to not let everyone’s effort in helping out go to waste he asked a few contributors to help him maintain the game development process on github.

Keyser and I have tried our best to get Pull Request tested, reviewed and finally merged and now we’re confident that we have enough changes to justify rolling out a new patch.

I won’t list every change here and just link the changelog on github instead since i’m too lazy to format stuff here properly.

All the changes that are listed on github are already in the FAF Develop game mode in your FAF client so you can play that instead of the current FAF patch to test the new changes and hopefully provide some feedback here.

Sadly there are still a few open Pull Requests on Github but we had to choose a date for the patch otherwise we’d just postpone it again and again.

Hopefully we can keep up the speed of development we had in the last few weeks so we can further improve the game and ship a new patch in a reasonable amount of time.

I hope that we can deliver the 3697 patch next weekend.
Thank you to all the coders, code reviewers and testers who help us improve the game.
