  • if a crash occurs, details are now copied to the clipboard (as well as creating a log) (xTrogwaRx)
  • Photon server in South Africa now available (Photon is still testing this region, so reliability may be an issue)


  • updated Russian language - special thanks to xTrogwaRx and Hunk790
  • gamepad dpad up/down can no longer be used for tabbing as this conflicted with scrollbar up/down toggles - dpad left/right are the buttons to use
  • dpad up/down toggle can now be used to scroll listbox items (such as in the file dialog)
  • gamepad A button can now be used to select a file/folder in the File Dialog and Y to delete (as long as the cursor isn't over a button)
  • up/down/dpad up/down can now be used to toggle dropdown items
  • dpad up/down to move scrollbar widget on bars without toggle up/down buttons
  • puzzles with monks buried inside solid bricks (created using LodeEdit) now play as per the Original (Jim - the creator of Hacker's Editor)
  • environment args for loading a puzzle in the editor updated to only support puzzles in your user content directory and support to edit a specific puzzle - eg; loderunn.exe debra.pzl #12
  • tweaked regenerating bomb animation for Moss and Dark worlds (xTrogwaRx)
  • colours changed when pinging regions (via pre-lobby); red indicates a region that could not be reached; orange indicates a region to slow to host a reliable game
  • network now only initialized when needed and not at start-up
  • Dropdown control no longer collapses when mouse leaves control (click dropdown or elsewhere to collapse)

  • various fixes for gamepad support for user interface toggling (Fark)
