Early Access version 122

MAIN CHANGES

A maintenance release with lots of bug fixes and improvements related mainly to the new Android version. Speaking of which, you can find the Android version here: 📱 Android (experimental preview) . Carefully read through the notes, because it’s still experimental.

Note that due to the addition of new options, all your saved menu Options have been reset.


Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. Note that your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (put it in your forum profile where it says “name” so I can find it).

COMPATIBILITY

You will lose:

  • any mid-mission progress
  • your language selection
  • all your menu Options

I closed the poll, we have a 2/3rds positive majority.

We should have a way to read past notifications if you accidentally clicked “Mark all as read” and forgot about it

There’s no image so that I decide whether to agree or not. Please re-upload.

I don’t think someone would accidentally click mark as read. Also clicking Mark as read doesn’t disallow you to read incoming messages unless you went away.

I found a bug (missing textures?)

Can we have a option in gameplay settings which is like: “Don’t deactivate weapon booster upon picking up firepower/gifts”?

There would be no reason for you to ever have that turned off.

I see nothing wrong in the image.

I don’t find that any useful at all.

Tell me you don’t play android version without telling me you don’t play android version:

Also it’s useful for races.

U know what? You can just spend 1 sec (approximately) to activate weapon booster right after picked up FP again. There’s no need to add an option like that.

Only your skill become useful in races (and other types of missions)
