.922 now out.
« on: September 26, 2013, 05:55:31 PM »
Release notes: http://arcengames.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Bionic_Dues_Alpha_Release_Notes#Alpha_0.922

Restart steam if you want to force it to update the game.

Lots and lots of tweaks here, most of which are things that speak for themselves in the release notes.  Of particular note for feedback:

1. Can our linux folks test if the resolution-setting is now working properly in the game itself?  It may or may not be.

2. The new mouse movement option is something I know a number of you are looking for, so enjoy.

3. Several of the commanders now have better bonuses than before (Rey and Gengi, anyway), so let us know how that feels.

4. The way that whistle works is now revised to work more like it used to, which should be pretty welcome.  Let us know how it feels, clarity wise.

Just tested it quick. Works for me! Looks like the Linux version is good to go now.

Another quick test -- don't know how you fixed the health regen bar, but it looks much better now. Nice!

This does appear to have changed Linux screen resolution.  I can't get over how tiny everything is now...maybe I'll change it back!

EDIT:  Something in this release (the new resolution changing code?) appears to have fixed bug #12562, a problem only I was having which was marked as "not fixable" -- awesome!

Well, so far, a good update.

The only major bug I ran into was with the RecoilBot instantly making everything in the mission go insane, but it looks like you already got that one dealt with for the next version.

Also the range display for the whistle helps alot.

Oops, that RecoilBot thing was more serious than I realized.  Fixed that now, and put it back to range 2.  Thanks!
