Product Update - Valve
Updates to Worms Reloaded have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted:

“Following hot on the heels of the Team Fortress pack, we now have the Community pack which contains missions, maps, hats and gravestones all inspired by and designed by the Worms community. The designs were chosen from a number of competitions run earlier on in the year and finally they are ready.

The community pack contains: -
  • 5 Single Player Missions
  • 3 New Multiplayer Maps
  • 3 New Hats
  • 3 New Gravestones
We've also fixed a bug that caused unlocked items to be no longer available.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our Worms fans for their help in making Worms Reloaded such a success and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Product Update - Valve
Updates to Worms Reloaded have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Worms Reloaded
  • Steam Cloud support has now been implemented
  • Game Styles can now be shared between users. Upon creating a new Game Style (or opening and saving an existing Game Style), a folder called ‘ExportedSchemes’ will be created in the same directory as the executable. Schemes will then automatically be saved as an .xsc file in this folder and can be shared and sent to other users. In order to import a custom Game Style, place the .xsc file in the ExportedSchemes folder and select ‘Import Game Style’ from the Manage Game Styles menu in game
  • Backspace now backflips the worm with a single press
  • Fixed an issue with the holiday hats message being non-dismissive upon receiving an online multiplayer invite
  • Tall vertical landscape types are no longer generated in online BnG Ranked games
  • Forts are now selected randomly from the teams in an allied group
  • The game will now end correctly when there is only one player left in a multiple round online multiplayer game
  • Added tooltips to Leaderboard and Show Player Games list screens

  • Fixed an issue which disabled the ability to zoom in online multiplayer games
  • Added the option to invite friends to the lobby in public Player Matches

Product Update - Valve
Updates to Worms Reloaded have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Worms Reloaded
  • Prevented the user from entering blank or space filled names in the Intro Wizard
  • Prevented the player from selecting with the function keys while they are falling. This was the cause of an exploit which meant selecting the girder in mid air would stop a worm from falling
  • Fixed an issue which caused worms to continuously jump if pause menu was opened while jump button was pressed
  • Fixed a number of online crashes and made extra stability fixes throughout the game
  • Changed the player invite screen for Private Games. It now uses a paged list rather than a scrolling list and colours to more closely match those used by the Steam client
  • Fixed a crash which occurred if more than four players tried to join an online multiplayer lobby simultaneously
  • Additional improvements to the ready lights
  • Added file validation check on first run of new versions to ensure that no files are corrupted due to a faulty update download
