    This build is a small juicy grab bag of miscellaneous changes since last build.

    No mouse required!

    As a result of the voting in #mapcycle, 2 maps are returning to CTF from the pool, and 2 maps are being returned to the pool.
    IN:  8x_PorkBuns, JTG_FirstBadlands
    OUT: Oodle_Stonethrow, Radioactive_Dahill
    There are also a handful of small CTF map balance changes (more details here). Thanks to everyone who voted and to the folks involved with applying all the changes!

    We've also built the infrastructure required to get Round Table Patrons their custom heads. We'll be reaching out over patreon and discord to get your head files game-ready. If you missed the news, you can support the game on patreon and get access to heads packs, fancy capes, and custom heads over here!

    There are some quality of life changes and fixes, including:
    • Quick swapping class at the tent - just tap the button, like you would for quick-swapping bomb and arrow types, very useful in tight tdm situations.
    • Drill "startup" time inconsistency fixed
    • "file not found" spam in the console fixed for servers
    • Functions that are specific about what angle units they take for modders
    • Linux chat position fix
    • Recent tournament accolades updated
    • see the changelog for more!

    As always, if you'd like to be involved with #democracy or #mapcycle voting, become more a part of the community, or want to get involved in #development - you're welcome in the official discord server!

    Have Fun!

    why the quick swapping? It used to be easy to quickly change to a specific class by tapping the button and selecting the correct class. Quick swapping is made worse by the resupply timer bug, where an archer's resupply sometimes cancels out the builder's so if you switch to archer by accident you're out of luck. Did the broken minimap you introduced with the last update get fixed?

    Fun fact: If you hold E and click to get the class menu, but do it too quickly, you'll auto switch to the next class instead of the one you clicked on. I'm guessing you implemented quick switch with a simple timer? Anyway, I eagerly await further quality of life regressions.

    No, and any debugging attempt is shotgun debugging essentially. It could be an Irrlicht bug or it could not be.
    When you get a crash (mostly seems to happen on linux+mesa) it occurs in the graphics driver which only indicates "something has been fucked up earlier".

    I've had TDM matches where every time I tried to switch classes I got the opposite class because of this. Madness!
