Darkplaces engine that has been powering Steel Storm: Burning Retribution got major update which has trickled down to Steel Storm today!
So what's new? Performance boost! The game runs faster now, especially on Linux. GPU skeletal animation was introduced to Darkplaces recently so that should help performance when you fight a lot of enemies. For those with older hardware - you can disable GPU skeletal using +set r_glsl_skeletal 0 in your launch options.
We got bug report for Steam Linux users that switching resolution crashes the game. This is again related to Steam's Community Over lay. Please disable it for Steel Storm, figure out most comfortable System settings for your game and appropriate resolution. After that you can enable Community overlay again (unless you want to keep on switching resolutions; in that case just keep overlay turned off).
EU official servers got updated accordingly, and restarted. US server are out of service, hopefully temporarily, due to technical issues on the provider's side.
NOTE: Make sure to restart Steam to get the update.
Enjoy the game!
