Multiwinia patch 1.0.6 released

Postby Chris » Sat Sep 27, 2008 1:00 pm

Multiwinia's first patch has been finished and is now available. When you run the game the autopatch system will automatically download and install the patch for you, updating the game to v1.0.6. Steam users will be getting the patch early next week.

This patch is totally compatible with the launch version, and fixes a number of small issues.

Here is the full change list:
  • Updated translations for French/Italian/German/Spanish (EFIGS)
  • Fixed : Exploit that would allow players to spawn Squads/Engineers at will
  • Fixed : Single-Player games advertised themselves on the Metaserver, allowing other players to join
  • Fixed : game servers on the Local Area Network would show up twice in the server listing, and one of those two entries would be unjoinable
  • Fixed : a problem which caused the camera to detatch from a Gun Turret you were controlling during Multiplayer games
This is the first patch for Multiwinia but we are already at work on the second. The second patch contains lots of improvements to the game lobby - such as lobby chat (yay!), kick/rename support, ability for players to signal "ready" before entering the game, password protected servers, and a load of other stuff.

Hurray! Now I can play SP in peace without being bothered by barbarians!

Wish I'd known about that exploit though, squad summoning might've been handy :evil: .

Does this include 'seeing the server settings'? :roll:

Anyway, fabulous work - these are very welcome updates!

EDIT: This is my post #666. Beware :twisted:

wewt, hope we get waiting room chat in the next patch and dedicated server client :P. I noticed a lot of people change their names in pre-game as a form of chat.

I doubt Introversion are going to make a dedicated server anytime soon.
