Update 4.2.162 - Incognito Mode, Balancing, UI & Fixes

Latest Update:
  • Incognito Mode: games can now played anonymously by setting the "Incognito Mode" checkbox during game setup!
  • Random Games: the nation you join is hidden as long as the game has not started. That's to avoid confusion!
  • Balancing: a transaction fee of -25% is assessed for transfer of funds from one nation to the other. See for details: http://www.multiplayerhub.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5321
  • UI Font: main UI font updated :)
  • UI Game: new in-game UI look! :-D
  • UI Game: misc. alignment and other minor fixes.
  • UI: misc. fixes for text wrapping/scroll wrapping.
  • Inactive Games (multiplayer): games where all players are inactive, they will end prematurely. That's to speed up tournaments & leagues with games that only have inactive players.
  • Networking: switched networking over to DNS to support connecting via IPv6 networks.
  • Modding: latest template ZIP uploaded for modded maps. Please update to that latest version which has a few additional nations. http://www.ageofconquest.com/modding.html
  • Modding: editor will now output an error when testing/uploading for maps that have (a) unconnected provinces or (b) very tiny provinces (to prevent problems when playing the map).
  • Modding: removing/updating background music for maps will not throw an error anymore while trying to upload a map update (removed backwards-compatibility check!)
  • Translations: latest translations added - Thanks :-D
  • Performance: touch-detection on Windows has caused considerable slowdown during rendering (lagging). It's now disabled. Go to [Settings] and enable "Onscreen Keyboard" if you are in touch-mode and require a keyboard.
  • Performance: GUI object allocation reduced (using default object for padding/etc. if possible).
  • Server: updated to prevent tampering with games by e.g. negative coin sponsoring.
  • Bugfix Listing: the game sometimes gets stuck listing downloaded maps. Improved retaining/releasing of temporary images that could potentially result in never-ending loading loop.
  • Bugfix Crashes: while entering actions (e.g. changing governors checkbox) while not being properly joined to a game.
  • Bugfix Crashes: loading the clan messages while network was not available.
  • Bugfix Crashes: during game listing some data was 'null' producing a crash.
  • Bugfix Crashes: if app version number could not be determined, it defaults to 0.0.0 (instead of 'null').

Update 4.1.159 - Joining Games, Game Setup & misc. Fixes/Updates

Latest Update:
  • Diplomacy Setup: the game now allows setting the starting condition of a game to all nations allied at game start or at an x-turn ceasefire when the game beings (Advanced Options / Starting Diplomacy)!
  • Disjoining Rated Games: you cannot disjoin rated games anymore (in addition to disjoining betting games).
  • Joining Games: the chat now also shows which nation a player has joined a game as!
  • Joinable Games/Game Type Abbreviations: the joinable games list shows abbrevations for the various games and their game modes, e.g. "nK" for "no king".
  • Joinable Games/Filter Permanent: the game now stores the latest search/filter settings for joinable games. That way you only need to apply some of the settings once and they stick for the next time when you come back.
  • Joinable Games/Setup: additional information if game is "Total War", "Total Peace", "All Allies" or "Ceasefire X Turns" (only available for newly created games!)
  • Fast Games (Blitz): improved handling of order/action submissions to server by also accepting "older" orders (less problems during bad network connections).
  • Fast Games (Blitz): server threads increased 8x. Should potentially improve connections to Blitz-servers!?
  • Version Checker: the game will check if the game client version is up-to-date and will output a warning if you are running an old version of the game. Although older versions work fine, some game-play features for multiplayer might not always work as intended (e.g. parameters changed).
  • Versioning: I will start updating the "minor" versions in MAJOR.MINOR.BUILD (e.g. the "1" in 4.1.237) if you are advised to upgrade. Increased minor versions indicates that some parameters/etc. have changed which can effect game-play. Running older versions in single player is fine, but using older versions in multiplayer can have negative side effects.
  • Rankings Table: the standings for the FAST/non-Team are now loaded automatically when opening the rankings screen.
  • AI Ratings: improved averaging of AI rating with tendency to lower bounds (multiplayer ratings).
  • Translations: latest translations added - Thanks :-D
  • Translations: latest render glyphs added that were missing (Chinese).
  • Guide/Texts: some minor spelling fixes!
  • Admin Guide: usernames vs. display names explained and also how to change a username when a player requests it.
  • Admin Guide: how to handle accounts that are found cheating/bad manner and are to be banned but show purchases.
  • Admin/Terminal: option to rename username (not only display names added) via "-x-rename-username:".
  • Admin/Terminal: outputting account settings also when querying user accounts.
  • Hacking: additional checks added on server side (purchases).
  • Backend (libGDX): latest release 1.9.6/7-SNAPSHOT integrated!
  • Bugfix Scrolling Wall & Mail: due to the "improved" translation popup, scrolling didn't work anymore. Should be fixed!
  • Bugfix ONLINE Status: the online status of players was not always being synced correctly (especially if network was out). The ONLINE status of players should not display correctly.
  • Bugfix ELO Analysis: should now correctly show the ratings and statistics in the ELO analysis tab (rather than 900/500 for everyone).
  • Bugfix ELO Display: rank slightly moved to the right to prevent overlap.
  • Bugfix Windows 10: touch-screen popup will not show anymore if a device is not in table/touch-screen mode.
  • Bugfix Custom Onscreen Keyboard: didn't re-layout properly when text went over to the 2. line.
  • Bugfix Map Downloads: didn't properly work on iOS (stuck at 0%).
  • Bugfix Default Music Volume: set to 80% (50% was not loud enough).
  • Bugfix Crashes: account status could not properly be determined and was 'null'.
  • Bugfix Crashes: vertex buffer increased to 32 (from 24) to attempt to reduce crashes ("remaining() < size" error)!?
  • Bugfix Crashes: by calling uninitialized floating point abstraction (construct).
