Just found a way to get the search button but you cannot revert the option unless you restart the entire maniaplanet.

When you open a title and u click on multiplayer there's avery little button "Legacy Browser" at the bottom (sometimes it's bugged on bottom-right, but usually is bottom-center). If you press it you go back to the old browser (rankings, seach button, favorites filtered on the title you chose). There's absolutely NO WAY to go to the new version unless you restart maniaplanet.. :thumbsup:

/useronly (only lightmaps calculated on players' tracks)
/LmQuality=Fast
/LmQuality=Default
/LmQuality=High
/collections=Storm
/collections=Storm,Canyon
I am aware of this feature, and have used it. The trouble is that the maps I need to recompute shadows on are often not my maps, they are maps from one of my servers. Currently, I don't save any of "my" maps in the "my maps" folder so that I can use it as a working folder for recomputing shadows. It would be nice if I could specify a folder to use so that I could save "my" maps in the "my maps" folder.

I really disliked the new tagging, the advantage of the old one was the fact we can pinged someone and hide ourselves, following the attacker through the walls, but now, u have to exposed urself so much to give the position of the attacker, really hard when ur playing against high players, please nobody was complaining about the old tagging, why did u change it ? Now everybody disliked it :/

I also prefer the old tagging system, but dont say nobody was complaining. There was a discussion about it that is was too powerful.
Imo , they should have left it as it was but maybe show the nametag a lil less long.

These replace the pillars of Castle Borders, so you have to place a Castle Border first (Straight or Corners) than place these blocks in one of its pillars.

Fix, I also read your big post about the changes, thanks for the symmetry error fix, it would be awesome if you could add some screenshots to that post :? I liked the screens in hylis beta 2.0 post, they helped me a lot to get how they are supposed to be placed :yes:

e: lol just after posting I found out how to do it, but anyways I think screens could be nice :)

My bad, was reading "New Gamepla feedback since beta2" and nobody was talking about it, or i didnt noticed it. The most reactions were about the sound, and now its worse ^^ The sound in beta1 was great, dont understand why they changed it.

Didn't test too much yet, but on the whole I'm rather positive.

The +0 is much better now, although still imperfect. I would add another 100 ms before rockets are vulnerable to the laser. Just yesterday I failed to kill a flying guy on Fortress in a match just because he shot a rocket.

Sounds are not the same as in B1.3, but now I can at least tell if someone is creeping up behind me. No idea about the jump pad sounds yet.
I never stop wondering why you broke the old sound in the first place.
By the way, rockets now sound like some sort of engine. ^^

New tagging system in Elite looks interesting. It certainly reduces the amount of camping and requires better communication within the team.

Full jump feels a bit sluggish on walljumps.

Menus look nice, but there are so many bugs to be fixed around UI in general.

As for reduced loading time, it seems to be the contrary for me. Also, sometimes it takes a full minute to load a title from MP's main menu.

Rocket charge time was not reduced? It seems to be 6 seconds.

With some minor but important tweaks the game feels much better now. Now go go, fix the bugs. :thumbsup:
