Hello all

Starting from version 4.1.3 i started development of new features. Any next version form 4.1.3 will head in to 4.2.x release. 4.2.x will become release after this development cycle end.

Since adding new features is painfull task and open testing is always great adition i openning this thread where we should discuss issues regarding current development cycle, and also i will apreticate if you report issues not exactly related to this upcoming release.

Actual release notes will be always posted in to Release notes page here:

http://hyperfighter.sk/content-9.html


I will update this post only witch attachment of the new versions. When you got any major issues preventing you use actual development version please post those issues here with detailed report (much informations as posible). You can always uninstal development release and install current stable release 4.1.2.

4.2.x development heading for those new features:
    - Reworked game info system to be more intuitive to use (allmost done atm)
    - Allow HL instancing via commandline parameter, whish will help players hosting multiple games in one computer (done)
    - Solve remaining issues with installing/using HL in some very speciffic scenarios (done)


Any other new features will be scheduled for 4.3.x release so please do not post them in to this thread but the "Feature requests" section of this forum.

Please note ! Because i need direct users feedback, testing version can be downloaded only by forum registered users. If you have an forum account dont forget log in. If you do not have forum account you can create new one within few minutes Smile

If you like to enter this development process you can download and install development version attached bellow:

EDIT: 4.2.x development is done, thanks for help guys Smile . Thread getting closed and leaved for reference purposes.

Show game player information not working, will be fixed in 4.1.6.

Mouse over a players in game list is not supposed to work the same way as over GIP or GI button of player preparing server session. because it will hide the list itself Smile I noting this as a request to do something with it.

I solved it Smile

- "Show player gameinfo menu" will get obsolette by automatic mouse over the player in flight of friends list
- Gameinfo tooltip will move to left when mouseover happen over the in flight window.

Those features are allmost done and will come out with 4.1.6

Can you make it a double click to join a DF server as at the moment its easy to accidentally single click into a server by accident.

I agree

A double click would be a bit safer to avoid accidentally joining a game

Some users may be in the habit of Click to see game info and not want to join the game

Rack


How about click to popupmenu and doubleclick to join GIP server ?

Ok 4.16 installed

Great work on the DF server joining game panel Smile

The colours are fixed on the host slot menu but the right side of the panel is still missing half of the information as in the screen dump I have posted above.

Re: Get Player info being removed

The ability to "back door" a Coop via a players name (friend) not the host has gone from the friends list.

This is a necessary option if you join a coop with the wrong settings or your sticks not working and you need to rejoin the host due to a hardware reset Tir etc etc you cant anymore.
It is a useful option that will be missed by the coop pilots Smile


I was able to use the right arrow + enter to rejoin after pulling up the player game info.
Some used the tilde + enter keys.

Unless the "back door" has changed ?

Steve

I found this problem, its caused by scalling and il fix it in 4.1.7

//join servername command is supposed to do this Smile Because gameinfo has been completly rewrited there is not any easter eggs left. But i can add there a menu item "Try join this player game" or something else whish will solve this issue without hacks Smile What do you think ?

EDIT: I will enable join menu for all items but if a player try join a game than is not supposed to be open, an ok/cancel messagebox informing about this will popup.

4.1.7 has been uploaded with those changes:

Code:
Whats new:
 Enabled ability to try join game in progress whish is not supposed to be joinable (for example coop). A warning  message will popup if player try join this type of game because it might fail. This was added because of new  gameinfo system has disabled easter egg enabling join this type of game by speciall keyboard shortcut. This will  enable you to try to join great coop missions hosted by Aviar or AcesHigh when you miss the meeting point :)

Bug fixes:
 Improved performance of the game search.
 Fixed invalid scalling in game server settings preferences.
 Replaced VB's msgbox by api equivalent. Default implementation causes HL server session corruption in some cases.
