Gatling Drones in action (thanks icepick37 for the image)

Yup, a fresh build is out, immediately available here, or on the HIB download page for you dear Humble Bundle customers! Mostly fixes and tweaks in this one, but there’s some new fun content too!

  • Fixed broken custom pie menu options; now they work as advertised
  • Fixed over-drawing of glow effect on selection cursor and aiming reticules. No more fat glows
  • Fixed duplicate team objective cursors added each frame in activities.
  • Fixed additional (I think all!) mouse control conflicts with other control schemes.
  • Fixed resolution setting issue. The game will now try to use whatever res is set in settings.ini, no matter how high or silly it is. The in-game options menu will still automatically set to 2x fullscreen scaling on high resolutions though. This is a compromise between what will suit first time players, and the power users who want inappropriately high resolutions.
  • Gave the Coalition Gatling Drone some more Coalitionish sprites – Lizard
  • Added Thumper Grenade Launcher; tweaked Nailgun, Railgun, Scouting Rifle, Annihilator, and a lot of other stuff – CaveCricket48
  • Improved Lua AI sentry behavior. Improved aiming at very short distances – Abdul
  • The Dummy Rocklet now respond to delivery/stay/return orders properly – Abdul
  • Made grappling gun more mouse-friendly – CaveCricket48
  • The Lua AI was modified to make it easier to add custom behaviors. Humans try to fly to their targets after losing both their legs. Added a Lua AI for the Gatling Turret – Abdul
  • Updated enemy drops in activity scripts, fixed a bug on the Annihiliator – CaveCricket48
  • AI now fires the Annihiliator with longer-charged shots. – Abdul
  • Heavy Sniper rounds no longer bounceCaveCricket48
  • Balancing of Blast Runner and Gatling Drone and Turrets – TheLastBanana

    You didn’t update Linux builds on HiB. Well, I play Windows version under Wine anyway so it doesn’t matter.

    Well, this is a pleasant surprise. I like this new build update schedule. Keep up the good work guys.

    H’okay, the mouse acceleration on the menu is weird. I still miss the kill counter that was removed in build 24, it makes the skirmish seem all the more pointless without it. I used to play to see how far I could get (how many enemy I could take out) before being overwhelmed or reaching a goal (like 300 kills). Now, I have no way to gauge my progress or performance whatsoever.

    I bought the game and then got a new laptop- and so now I have to buy the game again. Can you please make some sort of account thing for DATAREALMS so it saves your information so when you get a new PC you dont have to buy the game again. Thanks.

    Guys, update linux build on HIB please

  10. Visgean Skeloru - # December 28th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Please, upload new CC linux version to HIB!

  11. when - # February 2nd, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    Yeah an update of the linux build would be nice ! please put it on the hib site.


  12. Bootle - # March 28th, 2012 at 11:26 am

    OK, so you are not updating the HIB linux builds. You may have your reasons. However, leaving your paying customers without even a comment on that matter is shameful.

  13. Munroe - # April 7th, 2012 at 9:03 am

    just wondering how i would update the game to build 26.

  14. archl - # June 4th, 2012 at 5:33 am

    well, looks like linux support is abandoned.
