Build 926 – New Voting, Steam news & Heads!

I’m sure Geti will add more info concerning this build when he’s online. Right now I’m in a hurry so excuse my brevity. Come back later for more news on this build :).

The way voting works now is “lazy kicking”. This might change cause it’s an experiment, post your comments. Voting is now in scripts so you can modify it as you wish and add main menu items (cool!).

Your character name can be changed with the /cl_name command in console. This is part of preparing for the Steam release where players from Steam will use their Steam persona names in KAG. Your username will be visible in paranthesis in the scoreboard

The known issues about mod downloads have been fixed. If not let me know!

if KAG is taking extremely long to startup goto /KAG/Base and delete the /old folder.

I scheduled Steam release for Monday November 4th. This might still change because we need to finish the trailer and make sure everything is working, first with testers and then with public.

That’s right – if you bought KAG you will get pre-release access to a Steam code and will be able to play KAG from Steam before the official release. This should ease things up for everybody and deadline slips won’t be so bad :). Stay tuned for when this will happen (hoepfully this weekend).

Have fun!
