  • SM: annoying flash when spawning.
  • TM/SM: various fixes for spectator mode (shorts cuts, camera stuck after finish line on rounds mode, ...)
  • TM: approximate position/velocity available on server, "observer mode" can force or forbid overview camera when playing.
  • Improvements to the incremental updater.
  • Fix the advertissements billboard always displaying the same image
  • Fix crashes on obstacle loadscreen with verynice graphics settings
  • map editor crash fix + items are now ordered as in MP3
  • Improvements to the mesh editor

Same here, although I see some friends are still playing. Is this what Nadeo means by the bullet point 'Improvements to the incremental updater' in the latest change log? :roll:
And even then; still no news of fixing the (almost) game breaking bug which sometimes counts the last CP as the finish time, making wins sometimes impossible even if you get dedi 1.

Yeah, probably. Lucky them - but why force such an update, or not allow rollback when the client is still obviously usable without the update. Well; I'm giving up until there's a work-around/fix.

Actually, I gave it one more try, and selected 'Cancel' when it told me the title wasn't found. Now MP is stuck in an infinite loop repeatedly trying to download 'TMStadium@nadeo' and immediately failing. So maybe the file on the server is either corrupted, not present at all, or merely overloaded with downloads.

Just updated game (Scares me now every time i see that message) and what do you know cant load any of my stations or titles, REALLY! this is starting to be a joke and not a funny one, Come on guys even im starting to get cheesed of with all this. Im sure you will get it sorted soon (Fingers Crossed) but you really need to get this sorted.

EDIT
Just updated my MP4 with the non steam version and all seems well? is it a problem with the steam version then? because as i said my non steam version is all ok,

It was indeed an issue with steam only.
The steam version should be OK now, sorry for the issues...
