Test Server Update (25/08/2015)

UPDATE: 5:15pm pacific time : Test Server is down for a brief patch and a standard server wipe (characters and built objects)

UPDATE: 5:45pm pacific time : Client Version, Steam Content ID 749100

We are updating the Test Server with a build primarily focused (both this one and our previous update yesterday) on cleaning up behavior.

Please help us by testing the following items:

  • Gun Behavior - Sights should all be aligned correctly and fire predictably, reloading should be consistent
  • Animations - We have cleaned up several places where arms, legs, and whatever else might have been wigging out when switching actions - let us know what other cases you might find
  • Crashes - We've found a large number of little things that are all rolled up here
  • Performance - Let us know if you are seeing any change in performance (either peaks of higher fps, or overall better fps "feel")
