MMR update #32 & #33

This is a dual update for weeks 32 and 33. The main two stand-out features come from The Legend Returns; the option to use the MIDI audio tracks and the option to use the frayed edge blasting style. I was never really keen on adding features from TLR since this…

MMR update #31

Thanks to Howie this week for helping to iron out the kinks with the new build tool on Linux machines and for Miguel for helping to track why the game crashed when it was unloading, again, on Linux machines. This bug turned out to be a logic flaw on my…

MMR update #30

Compared to last weeks' lack luster update, this one is jam packed! Lodes of bug fixes, tweaks and improvements and a little work on the reliable UDP client (for LAN games). A couple of issues when playing on Ubuntu machines have been found (thanks Tim). Firstly, there appears to be…
