AI War 2 v0.704 Released! "About that Flair"
« on: February 03, 2018, 12:08:27 PM »
Release notes here!

This one (0.703 and 0.704) includes a wide variety of changes:
* A ton of work on getting multiplayer functional again (still a ways to go, but it's much further along).
* A variety of quality-of-life improvements like edge-scrolling working despite UI elements, and selecting builders with B unsuppressing the build menu if you had suppressed it.
* Fixes for some multithreading issues that were causing the game to bog down exponentially faster than they normally would in certain intense situations (more coming on that front).
* Fixes for some bugs that were killing the OSX build.
* Alterations to make the "main menu ship" more visually interesting without you feeling like it was pressed up against the screen.
* Tooltips in the lobby (and making them show on top of other things).
* A couple more batches of unit models integrated.

But the main and most obvious change is that all the ship icons have been redone. You know those color strips under a bunch of the icons to tell the different turrets apart (same with starships, guardians, etc)? Those were the "flairs". Bye-bye flairs! Now all the turrets, etc, get a unique icon.

That said, the icons have to communicate a ton of information, so please tell us how they're doing at that.

Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

When I click on "Tutorial" in the main menu of version 0.705 I get the following error message:

Error occured: 04.02.2018
Argument is out of range.
Parameter name: index
Line 0
===STACK FRAMES (with file info)===
get_item 36120 635 0

...and so on...

Player.log says something about Memory Leaks:


I am using the latest version of Steam OS on my Steam Machine and Ubuntu 16.04 on my desktop machine. The error occurs on both machines.

(The above copy my contain typos, because I was only typing it hastily when I saw the message on the screen. By the way, is there an easy way to uploads screenshots directly here in the forum?)
