Hi there!

It's no secret that the last 2 updates were bad so I had to roll back to the previous version.

I want to fix (and already fixed) several of the reported bugs, but unfortunately my network code now depends on Photon. This means that the issues you saw with the jerky movement of the airplane on the last update, I cannot fix myself because it is on the networking Photon library.

I'm pausing all updates until I have a fix. In theory, the last update they fixed it, but as you can see it didn't. It is hard for me to catch those bugs locally because I can only see the problem when playing against people across the world.

If someone wants to test the next update and help me figure out whether it is fixed all you need is a Windows machine. Download this file and run it. It will run on a different server than the regular game. Please post here all the issues you find so we can make a release with all the fixes quickly.

Just click the "download" that shows at the top and it will download all the files into a zip

In NZ, played mixed wars bomb carrier against one other in Maui
Everything seemed ok, except screen updates became more jerky if the view was not of sky only.

Zup I tried it on windows 10  surface, xbox game controller, ethernet connection with high speed internet from Maui. I experienced a very shaky screen, stuttering, and laggy. All bombs didnt drop when I bombed. 

I also play on macOS,  ethernet connection, xbox controller, on steam and the experience with that set up is very smooth .  The rudder doesnt work though and tank is very hard to maneuver with game controller on any platform.

I can't get the game to run from apple store on MacOS without using steam.  When it does run I cant get full screen view

I hope this is useful information

I think the only way to test it properly is to be together at the same time playing. Otherwise it is like the current situation where I test it alone and all seems fine.

maybe we should try on the weekend?

Or weeknights you usually enter games at the times I play. But if you want to throw a couple of dates and times out there, I will do my best to accommodate your schedule.

Ok so let's try today friday, at 3pm EST (that means, 4pm in New York). That's around 9PM in most of europe. I will ask in the game who is available for the test also at that time.

What time zone are you in ZUP? 
My evenings are clear this week, 5am to 10am GMT.
Did another test flight this evening, All seems normal, apart from jerkyness of non skydome views, and this artifact again.

Unfortunately playing solo all will seem normal, that's why I released it thinking it was good. The test has to be with several people playing at the same time.

Get the update with a fix for the pink tunnel here: www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/fugcbv309mvqtio2w...n4ur2sflrlgaftl&dl=0

Maybe the best way would be to schedule it on Discord channel? discord.gg/bftMX2TBnB

Well, after a few weeks, nobody has been able to help me test it out. So I will have to do like I always do and release the update with the best tests I could be able to make.

I'm sure there will be some problems but understand that it is better to release something with bugs and fix them slowly than not to release ever at all.

I play on Steam and Steam has version 22. 
  • 21 was smooth as can be 22 shaky. View from behind the plane is much smoother than the view from the cockpit.
  • Landing is weird could not steer right away when I landed.
  • Get the doc game can't get through doors easily on the first try you bump into an invisible wall at the doorway. 
  • No indicator of where the opponent is when off-screen
  • When I parachuted out of the plane and landed there were two of me. One me got into tank ran over the other me and crashed
  • Bombed carrier with three bombs none registered.
  • Spawned in and took off from lake instead of carrier
  • Other players where seeing multiple images of me.
