Beta 3.800 That Expert Has A Deathwish!

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.800_That_Expert_Has_A_Deathwish.21 This one is huge, considering it’s the second one of the day. And the first one had the giant Spire Infused Empire in it! This one doesn’t quite complete Expert Mode, but it’s getting darn close at the point. Other than some UI bits, and some stuff for the fallen spire /…

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.798_Reliability This one is all about the bugfixes, for the most part.

AI War 2 – Beta 3.796 Greatly Thinning The Turncoats

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.796_Greatly_Thinning_The_Turncoats This one still has an occasional turncoat unit (grrr), but they are REALLY hard for us to hit, now. Versus after yesterday’s build, threads were no longer insane, but turncoats were still frustratingly frequent. There was also a performance regression in the build of yesterday or the day before, and that’s fixed…

AI War 2 – Beta 3.794 Synchronicity

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.794_Synchronicity This one has some (hopefully) major improvements to some of the odd threading issues we’ve been seeing on the beta branch. The release notes have the details, but essentially I had switched a couple of our pools that are used in a cross-thread fashion to use the (relatively) new Concurrent collections from…

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.792_Thread_And_Entity_Sanity Wow, I keep thinking that we’re getting close to being out of beta, and then more strange stuff pops up. Thank you so much to everyone testing on the beta branch, because this really helps us to make sure things are as clean as possible when we come back off this branch.…

AI War 2 – Beta 3.791 Network Defragmentation

New build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:The_Great_Refactor#Beta_3.791_Network_Defragmentation There are a few new expert mode additions in here, making that even more difficult and interesting — thanks to Badger for adding those! Also some nice DLC3 improvements. On the networking front, I’ve made a number of improvements that should yield a better experience, lower bandwidth usage, reduced errors in some…
