Hi everyone.

Since the last devlog not much happened.
I fixed a bug with soldat checking C:\Soldat\0Textures\ folders and the other fix was for the too many bots error message which some cases popped up when you joined a local game when it shouldn't.

Most of the time I've been messing around with the Installer for Soldat.
There are a few things like Side by Side installs and uninstall a previous version when installing in folder with an Soldat installation.
I have a lot of stuff to read and test so that it works well. But I remember you heard that last time already.

I tried to add a load screen but it looked stupid (added the SOLDAT font bitmap to the main screen which disappeared when loading was done).
So that will not be included. It would only add bloat anyways ;)

I still hope other translations will come in as there are a few of them missing.
That reminds me that we have to replace the text "default: G" with "default: W+S" or jump+crouch.

The release candidate will take more time because I'll be busy the next 7 days. I'll try to do something but don't count on it.
It's currently silent in the dev team I guess nobody like fixing bugs that much.

That's all for this time. Sorry for the not so great news and for the delay.

Make it optional maybe? Can be enabled from Config?

What's with Soldat players and the need for pointless options?

The presence of a splash screen is to symbolize bloated or poorly architectured software. The preferred solution is to not write bloated or poorly architectured software.

Correct, nothing that would excite a normal player.

We have an all time low here.
