A nother week has gone by and we have another patch for you. We realize it may have been a long week of testing with the constant server crashes; this is why patch 1.2 especially focuses on attempting to remedy the crashing issue. Our programmer, who has been testing for several hours every night, feels that the fixes listed below will either solve some of the crashes or at least point him in the right direction. Also, our level designers have been touching up the maps according to your feedback and bug reports. Lastly, there are a couple other small changes, but you can read it all in the changelog below.
Today's screenshots will focus less on the visuals of Resistance and Liberation and more on the action in game. Therefore, below are some screenshots taken during actual play.
Changelog - Open Beta 1.2
! Possibly fixed a server-side crash when trying to look up an entity.
! Possibly fixed a server-side crash on round restart.
