Development Update Server Update

replay server switch

Hello Commanders,

after a few weeks of testing we are now using the new replay server which was written by Mazernoob and Dragonite.

The old replay server had two big issues which we hope to resolve with this new server:
1. Broken replays due to the server not picking the correct file
2. The current server needs to be restarted on a regular basis due to high cpu load

If you have any issues with the new replay server then please inform us by posting on the tech support sub forum.

Best Regards,
~the dev team

FA Update

Lobby 0.8.61

Changelog :

  • Multi-threaded map preview download.
  • Galactic War replays can now be played correctly.

Multi-threaded map preview download

Before this update, a newly installed client or a client with a cleared cache (options – Clear – Cache) was experiencing a major slowdown/lockup in the replay vault, or some mini-freeze regularly.

These locks were due to the client downloading map previews, locking the client until all previews were downloaded.

Now, the client is downloading the maps (and many at once) in the background.

Galactic War replays can now be played correctly.

The Galactic War replays need a lot of operations to be played correctly, ie. the reinforcements of the players must be known.

These informations are now downloaded correctly from the server.

They will be embedded in  the replay header later.

Lobby Update

Lobby 0.8.54

This is mostly an update for Galactic War Alpha testers.

  • Adding a livestream page (you can register your channel on the forum).
  • Added item to right-click menu on nickname: “view replays in vault“. This opens up the replay vault with a search on that player’s nickname and returns all the online replays of that player. (by Pietro)

This update breaks the compatibility with older custom themes !
