Oh, somewhere I heard of a new "explosion view" where when you die the camera switches to see a view of your complete exploding tank. Is that a rumor?

it was disabled for now. If it is added back in there will be an option to use the "old" style.

I'm glad it'll have an option for disabling it... I played with it for about a week and felt like I was going to lose my lunch everytime I died :)

I finally upgraded my CVS version and it went away - YAY!

:D

The new version incorporates a few new features, but it also fixes a lot of bugs that were discovered in 2.0.0. So, yes, it's better.

Why...

Post by Lirael_Goldenhand » Thu Apr 21, 2005 9:23 pm

Does anyone know exactly <u>why</u> the new release is called "Queen of Maybe"? I could never understand the names developers give to the releases... I mean, is it a private joke or what? =)

the OSX version has been done since 3/18, so nearly 2 months

it is listed in the SourceForge Build page with all the other mac files.

The downloads page was never updated properly, I went in and fixed it up, so it's understandable.
