As some of you have noticed, version 0.3.3 introduced some unexpected issues, which we didn’t encounter during our internal testing. The following 0.3.4 release fixed some of them, but at the moment we are still hunting for some little insidious bugs crawling around in our code.
The last couple of days all our efforts have gone to finding the issues and trying to fix them. So far we have been unlucky in reproducing the bugs on or studio’s PC’s and Macs but with the help of the community we are getting closer to a solution.
With the 0.3.5 release we take a next step in resolving the problems.
We’ve made some progress with the controller preset issue. In the controller preset file, we store the name of the controller the preset was made for. However, some controllers apparently return invalid characters. We’ve implemented a way to automatically remove these characters from the file, which should hopefully alleviate the problem in the next update. Unfortunately, we’ve not yet managed to reproduce a single instance of tracks going missing in the way described here and elsewhere. Could people experiencing this problem post the tracks they suspect are failing to load? Send your finding to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in advance!
About sending feedback
Additionally, you can also give us a concrete description of the exact problem you are experiencing. An objective, step-by-step reproduction is invaluable for us to hunt down and fix issues. Here’s some guidelines for how to describe reproduction scenarios:
- What were you doing exactly when the problem occurred? (E.g. I had just started up the game and entered the Free Flight menu.)
- What were you expecting to happen? (E.g. A number of environments should show up, after which I should be able to pick a custom track.)
- What actually happened? (E.g. None of the custom tracks show up and the menus stays white.)
- How can I reproduce it? (E.g. Add at least one custom track to the game and try to start Free Flight mode.)
Thanks for your support and apologies for the inconvenience.
