Early Access version 82.2


:warning: “Early Bird” bonus is not working in v82.1. Use v.82.2 instead.

There are two parts to this update. Firstly, a lot of ground work has been performed to support the eventual Mac and smartphone versions (none of these changes affect the Windows game, so don’t expect to see anything different).

Secondly, new content has been added in the form of new waves, most of which are based on your own suggestions. Due to the addition of new waves in the randomization pool, virtually all Invasion, Droid, and Retro missions have changed. Consequently, all ongoing League Dares have also been deleted. Mission leaderboards have been preserved for now (only Retro has been reset), but high scores obtained using the “old” waves will be eventually deleted.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. :warning: Your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).


You will lose:

  • any in-mission progress
  • all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.
  • if any options have been removed or added to a new version, then all menu options (not just graphics) will be lost.

You are reminded that during Early Access you are responsible for backing up your own progress. Make a copy of everything under C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU (including all sub-folders). :warning: Never rename files or move them from one version folder to another. Simply make a copy and then later put it back exactly where you found it.

Now let’s hunt new waves.

That was a crash. I don’t know why, though, your crash report doesn’t contain any helpful information. Let me know immediately if it happens again .


gladly i seen no crash after that to now

Wait a second, @InterAction_studios. Did you notice that “Early Bird” points wasn’t affected in each wave? I already complete in squawk block and I got another bug after new wave was started (as well as every wave in each mission that I already encountered).

I don’t think Retro missions can appear in Dares, can they?

Well, boss rushes can.

Sorry, from the name “I’ll be back” in changelog I didn’t understand that this is a mission for Retro Mission


Eh. Let’s just keep it for Retro. Adds more uniqueness to it.


:warning: v82.2 Emergency Patch is now available.


Can “I’ll be back” boss added to boss rush mode?
