Unofficial 2.02 Version 3.0.5.1 Released; Revolutionizes Gameplay Without Changing Any...

Unofficial 2.02 Version 3.0.5.1 is a small update to Version 3.0.5 designed not to introduce new gameplay changes, but to test changes in some networking values that seems to reduce the problem of GameRanger autokick delay, and possibly even reduce command delay in-game (though we're not sure on this point). We won't know if it will work until we test with the broader community, and we feel this change is potentially important enough that it should not have to wait until Version 3.0.6 is ready. The only other change included in this patch is an improvement to the patch launcher that makes your Old Replay Compatibility Mode selection take effect as soon as you select it.

Nevertheless, several community members, when asked for comment, have suggested that the patch has revolutionized gameplay.

"I haven't read the changelog yet, but I feel like it opens up many new strategies," says GameReplays-recognized expert player Cam, edited for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and decency. "I find the new double Gothmog rush on Buckland to be particularly effective." Cam is referring to the following game, where players rushing for Gothmog were able to defeat him after a drawn-out battle:


The replay is worth a watch, but Gothmog hasn't changed at all. If Gothmog rushes are effective now, then they always have been. As always, a new patch influences players' perspectives on what is viable and what isn't, even when the actual changes are inconsequential.

"It's a great patch," says GameReplays member Gregory. "It's really innovative. I love it and I love Forlong as well."

autokick fix!

Seriously, I think autokick is fixed. We increased this value in gamedata.ini called "NetworkKeepAliveDelay" and it seems like you don't need to spam anymore. Just say something every 30s or so and I think you'll be fine.

We tested this in a couple of tourneys and decided it was ready for prime time. Seems to be working well. smile.gif
