We are progressing the network update, and it is as bad as we thought. Changing network infrastructure is ugly in the best of cases, and this is not a good case. But we have some progress nontheless. Alpha 13’s network code itself has not been touched, as we are working on a branch for this, so you can still duel with your friends.
Other than that, we have added some minuscle visual touch to some scenes. The background here is that we were working on some of these effects for over four months, but had not had the opportunity to deploy them, as the levels they are intented for aren’t complere yet. So we took some of the effects, toned them down, and added them to the game in order to test-drive them, If you look closely, you might see them, but they are subtle (hint: they all involve particle systems).
