Game Patch 3702

Hello Commanders!

Today we release the the game patch 3702!

Some of the highlights of this patch are:

  • A feedback button after playing a ladder game so you can tell everyone what you think of those ladder maps!
  • Fixes for game crashing bugs that required some changes to the exe file.
  • Slightly optimized performance for range rings.
  • A secondary weapon target priority list you can switch to by right clicking on the attack command in order to snipe high priority targets.

The patch notes can be found here and the development forum thread here  – feel free to post feedback!

We would have preferred to get this one out before Christmas but sadly we didn’t make it due to time constraints.

We hope that you had a nice Christmas this year and wish you a happy new year!

~The dev team.

Python Server downtime/update

Hello everyone,

The python server will be updated January 2nd at 10:00 GMT+0, which means the game will be temporarily unavailable. This shouldn’t last more than an hour, and you will be notified via Discord and on the IRC when the server will be back online.

Here is a highlight of the update log :

– Mods that were supposed to be ranked (BHedit among others) are now ranked again
– The python server is now easier to set up locally
– The server now takes the most reported end-game score result, which means there should be less case where the game has the wrong score
– See the full changelog here ! https://github.com/FAForever/server/releases

Also, please note that from now on, server updates won’t happen at fixed intervals every two months like they used to, but may instead happen more frequently and contain more minor changes – this will allow us to fix quickly some frequent issues without having to wait too much for the next deployment.

Merry christmas, and have a nice day  🙂
