mainly fixes and things that are difficult to see since they are for the open beta (like not needing to enter a key etc.)

we have
- removed the "graphics are running low"
- removed the rocket jump on the head of a buddy to avoid map making to take it into account everywhere
- fixed the AFK bug
- added settings for Elite and tools to balance
- added things useful for the Elite Lobbies, that can be now run (we will do some tests later in the day or in the week)
- added the snapshot deltatime
- fixed some peer to peer issues
- fixed some replay issues
- link the streamer information up to the server browser if we want to display it

and other things for optimization of master servers with the client calls.

I know there are more things, especially like you saw Xymph on the callback, but I don't have the list and others will arrive later.

Hmm, can you explain how "Elite Lobbies" work?
It will replace Irc in your opinion?

on the Elite lobbies, on any other lobbies made by players thanks to the very simple framework, players can define allies in the real time chat tool of the system. When you set up your 2 allies and that the two others did the same, then the matchmaking will be capable to send you, with your buddies, to a sub server for the match. This sending can depends on the rank of the playres.

While you wait, you can play King of Lobby, and thanks to loading optimizations, it is more comfortable.

We may tweak the ladder points rules for these types of servers, such as winning more points or losing some if players disconnects during the matches. We may also do improvements to seek a replacement if somebody does this.

Anyway, we will be able to launch tests really soon since all is done for it now.

when does that matchmaking come?

and what did you think when you added the weaponchoice thingy?

my suggestion is you should have a so called "test realm" where you invite competative teams to test that "ideas" of yours since the last update realy makes no sence in COMPETATIVE play what you try to promote.

you said you dont want to devide the playerbase into 2 you more or less want to put most together (that lets people behiond and makes a 2nd grp btw...) but now you realy realy devide the people you have the publics and the competative players who TRY HARD to stay up with your GAME CHANING PACE since you realy define the game new now with every single patch. everytime you have to adapt more and get a worse result at somepoint.

i liked shootmania when i firstplayed it it was one of a kind shooter it had not much gimmics just simple movement simple weapon "choice" but now you make it like all people want it to be like other fail shooters you add a weapon choice for defenders (nucl with redicioulus reload) and lazers etc (who cares if the att sees all the defenders? if the map is good for it just 1 shot from every defender and its done deal the att is gone. or that lazer def takes a fence position where he is seen anyways and doesnt care about beeing marked constantly (ironfist for example) ...

so seriously go back to the roots of shootmania beeing simple is better than start to add random CRAP.

with the test realm i realy mean it. why not have the possibility for people to play there and give you feedback and not having you patch new games all the time.

and sometimes i check the patchnotes that you care more about the editor than about the actual game soo much notes fixes and additions to the editor instead of bug fixing (when you press escape in elite you cant press escape again to get out its buggy ALL THE TIME NOW, or when you go spectator in a match no one can join since that Spectator person still places the slot on a server and no one can fill it correctly he has to leave first) those bugs exist like AGES now and are yet to be fixed.

Where can I download the update separately (not in the game)? I'm just not very fast Internet connection.
P.S. Always lose links to the updates.

there is a setting to switch from one to another and we are in a beta

you are in the test realm V3rdi. You can simply play the B2 version, and I don't see what you need more. Let us do some tests with other players, and change the server settings simply
when you go spectator in a match no one can join since that Spectator person still places the slot on a server and no one can fill it correctly he has to leave first) those bugs exist like AGES now and are yet to be fixed.
I know, and we looked at it in the list of things to do, it is in the top, but we just had difficulty to reproduce it. It was given up on it last night, while we were working. The night before you came in to give us lessons on how bad we are you know. Maybe I care more for the editor, like you say, because they try less to insult and frags people which who they discuss? Be more constructive, do good detailed bug reports, how to reproduce them etc.

i didnt mean any insult. thus whats hard to reproduce 6 players on an elite server 1 goes spec have a 7th one try to join -> doesnt work...

and i dont flame you or what so ever i give critics like you need them to understand. my pov-> people are different that way one is a kinder one and one goes more direct into the approach.

as i told you no offence ment appart from your posting =)

yet when is the matchmaking coming and how do i reach it / activate it how does it work etc.

i am looking forward to the matchmaking :) realy thats one thing!
