    12/28 - Live Changes - patcher update required

    -Loading screen now shows the next map ( once the server decides ) as well as the scoreboard from the previous round.

    -The LaserRifle's default fire mode is now click to start charging , click to cancel / fire. There is a new option located in the main options menu to switch back to the old hold and release style. Your screen will now flash very quickly when it has finished charging also.

    The sniper charge issue is fixed , patch again if you saw it was broken earlier... switch weapons at least once then it will work.

    -Mouseover descriptions have been added to all the inventory screen items.

    -Overtime has been added for CTF , players will respawn with 15m on the clock. First to capture the flag wins.

    -Things to look forward to in the near future will be a new core(TimeSlam) as well as a detailed player stats tracking system ( authenticated ) being added to the main site with leaderboards and all that goodness.

    -The new sniper fire mode should not get stuck anymore if you decide to hold fire anyways.

    3/3/14 - Live Changes - patcher update required

    Pretty small update , nothing major.


    -Clients with demo reconnect turned on will not reconnect if the map switch happens under 1 minute into the round.

    -Added a 'refresh LAN' button to server browser page

    -Regening teammates gives 6 score per person aoe healed now. Healing the same person wont give score unless 30 seconds has elapsed since.

    -Warp now does a maximum of 30 damage( it scales with speed , always has )

    -Whiteout has been updated by Fixious (its now a bit smaller )

    -Invert mouse now works in the options menu

    -Chat message will now say when someone grabs the flag with dodge instead of normal

    -Some echo-spam console cleanup and also tweaks for stats ( Stats are still temporarily disabled though on hotswap , there will be a post when they are back )

    MapVoting
    Starting a vote
    Votes can be started by players or admins. Admins can start the vote from the game pannel. Players can start a vote by typing 'letsvote' in chat. When 60% of players have indicated the want to vote, one will begin.

    The nomination phase
    After a vote begins, there is 60 seconds for players to nominate a map. Players type 'nominate mapname mapmode' to nominate a map. If no mode is specified, CTF is the default. Both the map and mode are validated that they exist. After 60 seconds, nominations end and the top5 maps by number of nominations are selected. The voting phase begins.

    The voting phase
    The top5 maps are displayed in the game panel. When the voting phase begins there is a 'Vote for next map' option in the game pannel which will take them to the list. Clicking on a map gives it a vote. When 60 seconds pass, the map/mode with the highest votes is switched to.

    Vetoing a vote
    Both player and admin votes can be vetoed. Players can type 'vetovote' during the nomination phase. If 40% of the players indicate they want to veto, when the nomination phase is ended, the vote will be cancelled. If a vote is vetoed, neither an admin nor player one can begin again for another five minutes.


    MapLoading
    In the config.cs file (or live1 live2 etc.. on dedicated with more than one)

    addMapToRotation(missionname.mis,gamemode,minplayers,maxplayers);

    You will find the lines above. The order of these is the rotation of maps/modes on the server. Dropping maps in and loading them from the main screen or admin pannel should work without any additional file editing now. Mappers and Devs still have to be careful to only put the correct modes in their .mis file.

    Players can type 'nextmap' in chat and be told the next map in the rotation coming up.

    02/15/16 - Live Changes - patcher update required

    -Fixed a LODC bug where recalc and test would crash some people. They were using start move before test as a workaround before.

    **there are reports that using $timeScale(2 and 3 buttons) can cause stuttering in a demo. Seems to happen more often than not. I would avoid using them to fake slow motion until I finish proper slowmotion controls that do not use $timeScale. That being said, you can deal with the headache if you really want them.. does not seem to happen every time.**

    -Changed the 2 and 3 binds to increment $timescale by ,1 instead of .25 previously.

    -Pushed two different fixes for LODC binds sometimes being turned off and regular binds back on.

    -Put in an error message for LODC if you try to create a keyframe with no moves.

    -LODC will no longer crash on the 8 maps it was. Your old demos maps should be okay to use it on now. (Ones after LODC release)

    -Pregame countdown shortened to 15 seconds.


    -New option to see other peoples midairs as messages in your chat.
    This is disabled by default. You can edit this by changing the $Pref::Chat::OptionalsMsgOtherMidair value in your prefs.cs file (game/legions/preferences/prefs.cs). -1 means it's disabled and any positive value is the minimum midair length e.g. setting it to 100 will have chat announce other people's midairs longer than 100m.
