Open RA Update 20161015 and Hotfix 20161019

By FallenXE - 22nd October 2016 - 23:12 PM

The folks over at the OpenRA project have just announced the launch of a new update recently!

To begin with, the developers have managed to increase the range of sources from which the game content installer is able to extract game assets and installation files. Prior to this, OpenRA was able to extract the game assets from only the original discs of Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert and Dune 2000.

Now however, the developers have expanded the features to include and allow the extraction of game assets from C&C: The First Decade, C&C: The Ultimate Collection and the Dune 2000 Gruntmods Edition.

As can be seen below:

The first place you will notice this is the much improved game content installer. It is now able to copy and install game assets from many more installation sources, such as the original release CDs, the First Decade DVDs, installed copies of the Dune 2000 Gruntsmod edition and even the C&C Ultimate Edition from Origin. Additionally, for the first time ever, the content installer will now also automatically install the campaign briefing videos, which means you no longer have to do that manually.Source: OpenRA

However, do take note that as the game assets are being installed at a new location, as compared to the previous iterations of OpenRA, everyone needs to install the game assets again where launching this new version for the first time.

In addition to that:

Other new features and fixes include the following:
  • Fixes to a lot of crashes.
  • Fixes to a number of bugs that impacted game servers, such as the infamous “grey ping bug”.
  • New configuration options for customizing mouse scrolling behaviour.
  • New hotkeys for navigating to map edges, and bookmarking positions on the map.
  • New hotkeys for controlling the music player, as well as producing five units at once.
  • Improved aircraft reloading behaviour.

Not long after the update was released, it was followed up by hotfix 20161019 that "fixes for two critical multi-player bugs that were missed during the playtesting phase", the announcement of which can be read here.
