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 apparent with the in game camera caused by fast mouse movements
  • 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

Worms Reloaded
  • Fixed an issue that meant all players were kicked from a private lobby when the host kicked a player
  • The game should now once again return to the post game lobby after a Player or Private match
  • Fixed bug where if clients were viewing schemes or had the "Are you sure you want to leave the lobby" dialogue open when the match started, the game would return to the multiplayer screen instead of the lobby
  • Fixed a specific “Waiting for players…” hang where if the game was badly out of synch before the game had started it could hang indefinitely

  • Additional Ready Light fixes
  • Fixed an issue to prevent the lobby host being kicked due to another player leaving when returning to the lobby after a game
  • Fixed issues with Hell theme occasionally desynching right at the start of a game

Worms Reloaded
  • Fixed an issue which occurred when the host put their light bulb on and revoked the client ready state
  • Old lobbies should no longer show up when a player leaves a game in progress
  • Fixed an issue where the client can be thrown out of a lobby

  • Adjusted the column sizes in the lobby list screen so Spanish and Italian text fits in better
  • Fixed issue where sometimes private games would be partially setup as ranked so start game option would not be available
  • We now kill the voice chat when leaving lobby, so this should fix looping voices

  • We have also made a number of other smaller fixes that should make online play more stable.
