@Scawen: May I ask in what time span we can expect new official release?

I mean (we) at least me (but I think i'm not alone) allready expecting a bigger update then just a more stable connection Smile

Maybe u want to give us some insight Smile At least I hope for more info Shrug

Did I Say That?
Patience. That's all we can do.

my screen has 800Hz subfield btw...

Hz is really not my problem as such.lol.
Quote from THE WIZARD DK :my screen has 800Hz subfield btw...

if this is a TV with HDMI 60 Hz input bring this 800 Hz nothing. This is for calculating virtual Frames or just the flickering of the LED Backlight.

nope its depth. and dark colors mostly. but yes also something with the lightning.

but it does actually go dark as using post processing shaders . well it can go even darker than that why i dont need it in LFS. but it does also give a flickerless image as you say. true. HDMI out put also true as you say as LFS goes in 60hz. but really hz isnt my problem. it was infact the post processing i didnt get. but now that i do its also working fine.

its not a LED tv im using btw.

you do not know what is behind this stop in the communication LFS
Quote from Flotch :you do not know what is behind this stop in the communication LFS

I think no one does, except Scawen, Eric and maybe Victor.
Although I will never question any road they take (in fact, I love the whole developement process of LFS), I do wonder what is happening, as the main goal of this patch was to be able to handle attacks in a better way.
So speed was needed and now all communication has been dead for a while.
Well, the attackers have given up for now, maybe if there are more attacks Scawen will just push this patch out how it is before more content but if there are no more attacks then this will just stay as a test until there is.

Did you seriously post that? Logically that function just sucks.

What do you mean? That does actually sound logical. There's no reason to push this out now as the attacks have stopped if Scawen thinks something bigger can be introduced. Why make 2 consecutive test patches when he can make a bigger single one.

Now that went off from my point... but yes correct.

What I was pointing out that it would had already released official one. Having attacks makes no change of protocol about when and what should be released, unless there is something else which can't be seen upcoming. Attacks would generally only delay things. Not mentioning about going to attack master server, hoping about getting new content didn't work, so why it would work now? Besides, content would not be unlimited and it would loop once again.

That kind of talking would just courage people to go on nuts. Seeing as accomplishment, developers could not make things as they like, resulting disgusting content.
Hello guys.

How is this game doing? Been absent a long time

better than ever before Smile

actually.
That's eleven years, he's only been away 5. In that time we've had open configs, Rockingham, new Westhill, new Blackwood, many performance tweaks, and AX concrete. Just off the top of my head.

PS: Anyone got an explanation for 200+ hosts disappearing overnight, coming back overnight a year later, sticking around for another year, and then disappearing again? That first disappearance correlates to the start of the decline, the second to a lessening of it (Had it continued at the pace it kept up for those 4ish years, it'd've hit zero a couple of years ago). You can see it had a small effect in racers, with a slight lag. Not necessarily causation I know, but I'm curious.
I recall that one of those big drops (most likely the later one) had something to do with some finnish website closing - "final lap" or something like that.
Also the 1st might be closing of 500servers - big hoster that time,suddenly got lost.

5Laps.com is the site you're referring to. Kind of shame it got shut down, it was pretty popular IIRC. That website and its league system introduced many players (me included) into the world of LFS.

(sorry if this is too much off topic)
It's all good since I installed the patch,but please make the watermark optional because it's annoying,the reason is that I like my fps counter on the left corner of my screen.
I know, i need to be patient, and yes i'm. But i'm wondering, why there's no update about the next (Test)Patch. Because the last testpatch was released 5 weeks ago. Since than, the communication has ended between the devs and the community.

Is Scawen trying to add the new shadow system into the next testpatch?
Or is he enjoying the "good" weather Big grin.

We will never know, until he tell something about the major update Tongue.

Keep up the good work, Devs Thumbs up
Looking forward to the new shadowsystem.
He is trying to implement the TT in LFS Big grin (see Scawen's twitter account ^^ )
To be serious I'm patient aswell, just hoping for a terrific news, whatever it will be Thumbs up

Hi there. Sorry about the long delay. It's nothing exciting. There were some more possible developments for the test patch, but they were not very interesting and other things came up. At this point we've decided not to go on working on the test patch. Better to release it as a full version and I can go on developing for the new version that Eric has been continuing to work on.

For the test patch, I did add the key to temporarily hide the object outlines. I went with ALT. CTRL+SHIFT seemed to interfere with other things and was confusing. I expect to release this minor test patch update in a few hours.
