I commend thee.

Feedback:
-seperating the parties seem counter-intuituve. Was just in a party of two and got seperated in a 2v2 match, even with similar ranks.
-using DSR (higher resolution) with Nvidia makes the chat window appear out of place in the middle instead of the lower-right corner.
-hitting 'y' for chat window conflicts with friends list and veto

Bugs:

- Chat window box from matchmaking lobbies appears in other menus and modes after clicking host game in LAN.

- Chat window box doesn't appear in custom match lobbies.

- Time limit option in wrecking crew doesn't appear correctly: http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/549767993236001209/D1ADFE04B84D81B897063B6E2A91694E611F4086/.

- Commands to lock the two bugged achievements do not seem to work, unless I did it wrong. EDIT: seems I did it wrong, they're locked now.

Suggestions:

- Have chat window appear in the same place in-game as it does in matchmaking lobbies and not in the type left corner as it looks out of place and gets covered by kill/event messages.

- Remove rectangle box and background from chat window in lobbies (and in-game if the above suggestion is implemented).

- Change size, front and colour of chat window text to be more in line with the style of the game.

- Chat window disappears after a short period of time until a new message is sent instead of always showing them.

- Increase the amount of characters that can be typed in a single message.

- Allow chat window/console to be closed by pressing ESC.

- Chat window clears itself after each match.

I have used the LAN chat window bug I posted above to show where I feel the chat window position should be that I mentioned in my first suggestion: http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/549767993235997540/D78D991A87ADCE1B94E2464D09954EC7FFB15E9F/.

It's at 2103x1183 (1.20x native) in the screenshot. As I bump the resolution further, the window moves farther and farther towards the upper left.

Is the Y key for team chat rebindable? It conflicts with single player fast travel.
ngdevone  [developer] Dec 17, 2014 @ 1:48am 
Conflicts will be removed in the next update.

By default 32-bit executables are limited to utilizing only up to 2 GiB of memory (address space). Large Address Aware 32-bit executables can utilize up to 4 GiB of memory address space (~3.5 GiB, as the remaining part of the 32-bit address space will be used by the system libraries).

This means the game for example can preload more data into memory. The rfg.exe wasn't a Large Address Aware executable before.

cool update, nice having no time limit in wrecking crew now.

I have a suggestion, would it be possible to add a "none" option to backbacks?

also, will it ever be possible to get the reconstructor to rebuild stuff in wrecking crew? it's still only available in multiplayer or via a mod in the main campaign.

Thanks a lot for this new update!

I am not entirely sure if this is related, but for some reason I don't have an explosion sound for the Thermobar-rockets anymore. They still make the whizzing sound while flying, but the explosion is completely silent.
This happens in wrecking crew without time limit and every other mode aswell.
