- Fixed issue with the connection to Shootmania servers.
- Imported updated translations

2019-02-07:
- little update to fix some issues with the system plugins (some rare issues in the chat plugin, finally made the mouse sensitivity slider match the old values, "tournament" manialink update, ....)

2019-02-11:
- fixed shootmania bugs.

Is this a Stadium thing?

Thanks for the update!

Can you go into detail about the mesh modeler & MT fixes, so we can mark these threads as fixed? Cheers.

Yes, the middle road bug is a Stadium-only phenomenon that has occured on a more frequent basis ever since Maniaplanet 4 got launched. For the sake of preserving competitiveness in upcoming tournaments and eliminating random elements as much as possible, the physics are now being looked into and tweaked accordingly.

I heard this update broke ShootMania really bad. I'm not an SM player so I can't give more details. But you might want to check into it.

new players that join the map can not move when spawned. So when finally a player joins, we can not start the game.

That's correct. Thanks for the report Eyebo.

More information:
- Elite
- When u skip to the next map it gets fixed and you can play the game
- Happens to almost every player

Also:
- Crosshair resets after every map.
The neverending waiting game has to stop.

To be fair, they probably assumed that their small set of changes wasn't going to affect ShootMania at all, so they probably didn't test it. An honest mistake, but a thing to learn from. I'm sure they'll get this fixed soon.

With that said, yes, they do need to get into the habit of testing all of their games whenever they push an update, considering ManiaPlanet is the engine for currently 5 games, not 1.
