AI War 2 v0.746 Released! "Disposing of the Invisible Man"
« on: June 29, 2018, 05:17:07 PM »
Release notes here.

Expect more frequent releases again, now that we're past that initial hump of getting the pivot in a functional and basically-fun state.

This build is on the smaller side, but includes a lot of interesting stuff nonetheless.

  • There are a variety of bugfixes and usability improvements based on feedback from Badger, Ovalcircle, and dv = i ln(w0 / wf).

  • The very barest tip bit of wave 3 of the pivot is in place (just the first two units -- I said it was small!).

  • Attack Move and Group Move, which have been long-awaited, are now in place!


Bear in mind that we're working on a couple of different fronts simultaneously right now.  Keith is working on the third wave of content from the pivot, Badger has been working on a variety of factions and fixes, and I'm working first on some fixes and then on the lobby UI.  After I get past the lobby, then I'll start looking more into other areas of the UI along with Eric, and so on and so forth.

I again wanted to mention: we have a new Steam Developer Page.  If you go there and follow us, you'll be notified about other upcoming releases (including this one, of course).

Enjoy!

Chris

Tried to get a quick whirl, but the UI was borked so I couldn't get anywhere.

Also...is there a discord? Where is it? I want it.

I am doing play testing for other projects and am moving at a much, much faster pace and discord is perfect for that.

I love these forums...I really do...but now that the pivot is going we need to move faster.


Found it. See you there!

If the UI is borked, probably you need to verify the local file cache.  If that doesn't work, then what OS are you on?  And are there any error messages?

It was resolved on Discord, I believe.
More of an unexpected (but not precisely wrong) result, IIRC.

Yes, it was the perfect question for discord. The help there is really nice.
