im happy that u take care of this.

im thankful and dont want to sound unthankful.

BUT

Id be way better to really playtest a new version, make sure its ok, and then release it. Having to patch it twice in such a short amount of time is not optimal. So no

i dont agree.

Sure im happy u do updates and move the game forward again. Thx alot for that. rlly. But fewer but better Updates are actually better.

Keep on rocking! Im sure u will do better next time. And its not a big deal either. Just giving a hint here.

This was a better update because people couldn't play the game. It was a needed update to fix game-breaking bugs. What they should have done is released a public beta of 1.6.1 first, though.

Soldat needs an auto-updater that updates automatically on startup like you see on many online games. I don't see the need to keep an old version of the game. There are stil people playing 1.3.1 that don't know there is a newer version of the game.

i agree with u and didnt mean to say anything different than that. My problem sure isnt newest update but that is was needed. that shouldnt happen in the future and can be evaded by more testing. which i promise to help on, too ;)

How about an auto update feature?

You know it's really weird how people asked for updates when we were trying to get stuff working after EnEsCe left.
Now suddenly you don't want updates for whatever reason.

I believe the reason is, you just don't want to install updates. But you actually want updates.
Let's take KAG for example. If Soldat would auto update the same way you would ask for updates ;)

Similar for server owners. They just need automatic updates.
That and maybe keep the servers working with a few versions of Soldat.

How about an auto update feature?
Sounds like a good idea for a feature request topic :P

If this is what you mean then heres the fix:

EDIT:
If you downloaded it before 2011-10-13 01:00 (GMT+1), re-download it if you have issues with FPS.

Before this update which is mentioned in first post I had 10 FPS all the time. The update helped, but not quite enough. I still have FPS issues. When I'm running alone I have ~60 FPS which is playable, but when there is some action the FPSes are around 30. I don't have the newest computer, but I hadn't got this issue on 1.6.1.

I was shocked to see soldat already updated, but I'm glad you guys are ready to fix new problems right away, unlike most big companies, who don't respond to these kind of issues for weeks.

we dont like rushed game versions.

So an update that's not perfect is a rushed game version..? 1.6.2

It's a fast update cause it was needed to fix some annoying bugs - watch changelog... Next update should come much later...

oh cmon. Dont act like ur stupid. OFC im not demanding to send out bugfree, perfect games. If those are even existant. I believe not.
What i asked for is this: (and it wasnt hard to understand)

When a version is created (like 1.6.) it should be tested so far, that it can be sent out without the need to be redone twice in such a short amount of time. Cuz thats doing the final testing after release and thats not a good thing, whether we understand, that they are doing their best (which i do) or not.

Ofc 1.6.2 had to be rushed, because of the quick need of fixes. I totally understand and support that.

So theres two sides to be thought off: The developers need to test the game more before releasing it (and maybe try harder to get new ppl into soldat, but thats another topic)
And us (the players) need to be more active as betaplayers. Because there werent many helping with that testing either. I didnt help, i admit that, but promise to do next time if i get the news that theres need for betaplayers.

This way, the game can be sent out better (not perfect, but better) and there will be less issues for everyone.

Still: Having developers that actually take quick care of those bugs is a very good thing. Thou there are still a lot of requested things missing in 1.6.2 (flag carrier bug, fps, adminprotection to name 3 known to me), its a stable and playable version we can actually enjoy.
