This one has a few big changes!

I'm absolute exhausted getting this update ready, yesterday worked 16 hours, today 18 hours....time for sleep after this!

Make sure you restart your Steam client so that the update comes through.
It is called "Version: Easter Access #5.8(EA)"

PATCH NOTES: (In no particular order)

  • Roasted music track wasn't being treated as music, and is possibly why it kept cutting out. This should hopefully now be fixed.
  • Pipemare segments should now smoothly move on clients, although the rest of the pipe is generally out of sync, such as lasers, fan blades etc.
  • More fart noises (this is important)
  • Also assigned the fart noises to the SFX sound class, which means they will have volume adjusted up or down based on SFX volume.
  • Lowered the volume of fart noises...500x volume was a bit excessive.
  • Fixed an issue where the board game intro didn't skip for clients when the server skipped it.
  • Round number now shows correct round for clients in board game mode.
  • Added slight delay before a newly connected client can hit start/enter to join to prevent some connectivity issues when a player who is joining keeps spamming the start button despite not being loaded in properly yet.

I spent about 36 hours on board game connectivity problems, writing a bunch of different scenario's down and testing them all out until they worked....then testing them all again every time I changed something...that's why this took so long.

Players can now drop into the game whenever they want, and drop out whenever they want and there aren't really any major issues at this stage.

There are still some problems regarding drop-in/drop-out in the board game map, such as players losing all of their stats, but I will be addressing that hopefully for the next update.

The main objective for this update was to allow players to be able to join the board game mode whenever they wanted, and be able to participate without breaking the game. I think I have succeeded, and I am very happy about this.

I'm sure there were more things fixed that I didn't touch on, but it's now 4:30am and I need to sleep before I pass out from exhaustion!

Have fun everyone!
