0 comments by seonr on May 23rd, 2013

Here is the awesome change list for v1.30

- Added user level search in level gallery - You can search by level or author name
- Added bonus packages to defense games in user created levels
- Added error message + quit button for situations where user levels are busted to prevent you from playing on them
- Added ENTER to start typing in chat window and ENTER to send, no need to click in text box or click send now.
- Added auto scroll down of chat window contents to always show you the newest message
- Added Cubemen 2 icon and link to the main menu

- Re-wrote unit targeting to make it 1000% better and more predictable ( game might be harder now, sorry )
- Password field when hosting a game auto focuses now if you click the padlock
- Removed more desktop internet checks to prevent some machines from not being able to play network games

- Fixed custom theme causing level to go white is playing offline
- Fixed (hopefully) issues where players were getting "GetThreadContext" errors
- Fixed network team game kill assignments and incorrect score assignments
- Fixed network game data sync between players sometimes becoming incorrect
- Fixed mouse Scroll Wheel not working on Linux
- Fixed Hunter achievement not triggering if you already got Marksman
- Fixed a massive memory leak with user level thumbnails that could cause out of memory crash when viewing many pages in the gallery
- Fixed memory leak and issues in the end of game score calculation in defense mode

We have updated the network version as well, so you wil only be able to play network games against other people running 1.30.

Also, in case you havent looked, we have over 17,000 user levels you can play on now!

It's a pretty comprehensive update with new stuff, changes that we think any of you will enjoy.

I was looking through my profile and saw I commented on this. I actually totally forgot about this game but I'm glad to see over the last few months you guys ported it to Linux! Thank you. :)

For some reason, Cubemen shows up as not ready every time I restart my Desurium client since the last update. When I click reinstall, it almost instantaneously finishes, without the download, and I can play it just fine, but the next restart it's not ready again.
I'm not sure if this is a problem with the Desurium client (I'm using the current Git version) or something else, but since I haven't had this with other games, I figured I might as well post here.

I am really not sure what it is doing that. I'd try pinging Desura support. Sorry,

I had the same issue and I fixed it by renaming Cubemen to 'Cubemen_32bit) and renaming the data folder to 'Data'

Love the game. User made maps should be made into downloadable map packs, would be cool =)

I bought cubemen before the linux version was available here. I go to install it, and it says "there are no available releases for you to play". I click "Install" and it prompts me to buy the game again. Help?

You should try to get it on Steam, Like I did.

That's like responding to "My Windows PC keeps crashing" with "Buy a Mac, like I did". It's not very helpful... especially since Steam for Linux is still in closed beta and this game probably isn't offered via it even if you are OK with DRM.

Update: I was able to download the standalone version from the desura website (trying to download it from the client did nothing) and it works. Yay

Really good tower defence game. Starts off difficult but once you understand the mechanics, it gets really fun.

@brettbrooks @nbnco Yes, relocation is the only option it seems… which is such a poor result for a "modern" country like Australia.

Mar 2 2015, 12:23am

@nbnco Especially when u r not even rolling out current tech by todays standards, let alone 5 years time. Needs to be taken more seriously.

Mar 2 2015, 12:15am

@nbnco Yeah & has been going for 5 or 6 years already? You realise for a business that survives totally online, that's 100000 years right?

Mar 2 2015, 12:12am

@NBNCo What's with the MASSIVE black whole around East Bentleigh Vic? Still not even on any roll out plan? How many years do we have 2 wait?

Mar 1 2015, 7:54pm

@benbritten Have fun!

@winstonoftang @nicholasmc1 Yeah, i'm kinda hungry… desk chain ain't long enough to reach the fridge!

@winstonoftang Even A dip… doesn't have to be AN dip. Even dip dip would do.
