Test server Ultra Major Update

Recommended Posts

Hello Skylords,
Hope everyone is doing well. As promised, here is the test-server update planned for this week. We are really excited for this update as it contains many bug fixes, big features like 2vs2 and 12 player maps, and quality of life improvements. We would really appreciate it if you guys could test this update, because a lot changed and it would be very good to be reassured our changes are working as intended. The .zip in #dev-updates-test-server contains the files for this update as well as the new launcher. Just move all of the contents of this .zip file to your game directory (where you also have BattleForge.exe) and overwrite any files if it asks. The new launcher automatically loads the correct game files, so you can seemingly switch between test server and production server without having to move the files yourself. Hopefully this improvement makes it less cumbersome to play on both servers. The changelog can be seen below. We will be looking forward to hearing what you guys think of this update!

Known issues
- Although 2vs2 works, there are some issues with properly updating the players within the group (Team1, Team2, Unteamed). Sometimes the players will have a "?" as their avatar too. This should work fine for all other modes.
- 2vs2 currently provides wrong amount of ELO for a match.
- Sometimes you may hear a (windows) error sound. We have yet to find the cause for this, but we did notice it seems to happen more frequently when opening the news section.
The game seems to work fine, but please let us know if you think you found a way to reproduce this.
- Rerolling quests might sometimes not work.
