Changelog

Appearently not much as we are in feature freeze.

Engine

  • Filter AI targets based on what it can actually attack. Fixes the bots hunting cloaked units with never being able to strike an attack creating a lot of lag as depicted in the performance graph screenshot on the right.
  • Generate a GL Error if framebuffer creation fails.
  • Updated to SharpFont 2.5.0.1.
  • Fixed RALint.exe System.Exception: Tried logging to non-existant channel debug.
  • Let the AI not command stolen units which will cause lag and exploit detection spam.
  • Added a complete log of incoming data from Session.Deserialize for debugging.

All Mods

  • Renamed sequences/map.yaml everywhere as people confused it with files that control the per-map rules.

Dune 2000

  • Added the Deviator tank that can change allegiances of units (now that the AI can handle it).

Tiberian Sun

(unreleased)

  • Fixed crash when trying to change the player color in the lobby.

Still not included!

Red Alert 2 and Tiberian Sun mods, but that does not stop me from posting awesome screenshots taken from developer test builds to tease you to hell. Don't expect this to be included in the release as it is far from stable and polished. However you can already use VXL and SHP(TS) for your own mods!

It's opensource, do it yourself

While open source is awesome, I really do hate it when everyone assumes that because you like it, you are a coder.

Well confusion and it was inconsistent. The filename map.yaml is already used for something else and together with mod.yaml the only one that is hard-coded in the game to define everything.

sorry to bug you like this but i have another question, is there any way to fix the stuttering that starts about 5 or 6 minutes into the game? it makes it almost unplayable.

There were some regression with AI performance. We released a new playtest to combat that.
