    Build 428 is on its way out with some important (potential) fixes:
    - fixed rcon admins/guards crash on certain collapses #267, #469
    - fixed unable to join busy server (lots of objects)
    - fixed crash on camera shake (sometimes)
    - Removed use of in-game browser, links now open in normal external browsers
    - pressing enter in the username box at login now submits the form
    - slight changes to how ping timing works in the browser, might yield more correct results

    It is possible some of these issues are only partially fixed - the nature of these bugs means that they need to be tested in public for a while before we know they are fixed.

    It is also likely that these fixes resolved some other bugs. If you have submitted any bugs to the bug tracker, please test them (even if you submitted a long time ago but the report is still open) and add a new note to your bug report saying if the issue is still present or not.

    You have single-handedly saved the sanity of every guard and admin on a premium server. For that, we thank you. This alone would've been sufficient enough to be stand alone update.
     
  7. Finally, no rcon crashes. Thanks alot Brick :)

    Indeed. I was actually able to play a few rounds on Rayne's, Beo's and a few other places where I'm admin and DIDN'T CRASH 5 MINUTES IN!

    Whear r wizordz? :p




    Good work though if this is settling things down though, usually takes me at least a couple of tries to get on a busy built up server, especially when it's a 100ish ping one.

    what do you mean by "a few tries"? You mean your join fails for some reason, or it is full by the time you join? If you're getting an error, it would be great for you to share a copy/paste or screenshot (if it is an error, please create another thread and link back here)

    Hmm, I crashed like 10 minutes after logging into rcon on MOLE. Further testing is needed.

    It will be missed, but really I don't think it was useful in any way.

    Haha, so many admins couldn't play in the old build. Some might say it was griefer heaven, from what I saw they didn't show up.

    Occasionally it'll either dc me for no apparent reason after a couple of seconds, leaving me with the map greyed out and the disconnected from sever message, and very infrequently I've had crashes in the past, but I can't remember one happening recently and it's probably so long ago it's probably not something that really happens anymore to the average player. It happens on servers that aren't even remotely full anyway, I'll try remember to make a note of the specifics next time it happens, do you want it writing up on the bug report site?

    AnRK, start by creating a thread in the Help section for now. Join a u13 server from the list (any of them) and see if it happens. If so, post in that thread the exact name of the server you joined and I will take a look in the logs to see what I can find out

    Heeey, the game seems much more stable now. I've heard reports from some server admins that there's still a few crashes in there, but I'm not sure I've witnessed this - yet.
