I'll update this thread with each new build of Splody indicating what is changed and what bugs are fixed.

After a new build is released, it usually takes 5-10 minutes before it trickles out to all logged in Steam users, so if you get an error message about having too old of a version to play online, either wait a few minutes or restart Steam and you'll immediately get the latest patch.

2017-03-23 - v1.0.219 - Online Multiplayer Fixes
  • Fix for being unable to kick a bomb after the first attempted kick failed due to a remote player moving into a blocking position simultaneously with the kick (bug credit: Dangerous Beans)
  • Fix rare crash running a dedicated server with Player Start set to Random/SERIES (happened to/found by Van_Din, thanks for uploading a crash report!)
  • Fix Player Start set to Random/SERIES spawning players in invalid locations when using a maplist (cannot always spawn in the same location on every map
  • Fix network latency causing death by wall closing in to be non-deterministic (under extreme cases, it could say someone won on one client and it was a draw on the other client)
  • Fix death by wall closing in not always stopping as soon as its down to one living player (now it should, plus network latency time)
  • Do not declare a match as "Perfect" if you won by default because all other players disconnected

2017-03-28 - v1.0.222 - Usability Updates
  • Show player names and level name for a moment after viewing the scores screen / pressing LB
  • Line bomb now requires not moving between the two bomb placement taps (prevents accidental line bombs when running and placing bombs quickly)
  • Line bomb can now be activated when standing on another's bomb (any double-tap, if the space in front of you is empty, triggers a line bomb)
  • Fixed prediction issue with line bombs that sometimes left the client thinking it had more or fewer bombs left available once the dust had settled
  • Added a separate status icon for "viewing scores/menus" and "chatting", so a player who opens the Escape menu to quit is not confused for one chatting
  • Status icon graphical touchup
  • Show spawn point order in the level editor, clicking an existing spawn point moves it up in the order
  • Did a pass on all levels to make sure the first 8 spawn points are ordered in a reasonable manner, making the "Fixed" player spawn option much more useful now
  • More quickly resolve mispredict when you place a bomb immediately after picking up a remote bomb powerup
  • Fix for a kicked bomb moving into your square because the server did not yet know you were there, client now snaps back out of the square, and bomb should stop in that square
  • Fix for kick effect playing multiple times when running faster than a bomb and following the moving bomb
  • Fix incorrect powerup names in the level editor (Bug credit: Kalt)
  • Fix long server names not formatting correctly in the server browser (Bug "credit": "The Real Grasshopper's Server"
  • Fix long steam friend names not formatting correctly in the "Friends Online" screen
  • Fix erroneous warnings about out of bounds positions showing up on server consoles
  • Fix local AIs playing bomb kick sound (but remote AIs and remote players were not)

2017-03-30 - v1.0.224 - Large Players
  • Fix fatal server crash reporting player statistics when there are more than 15-20 players and spectators in a match (bug credit: Proton Jon)
  • Fix long player names not formatting right in the Series Results screen
  • Work around various programs stomping on Splody's textures while recording/streaming (was causing effects like white rectangle around explosions, FPS to show up on random objects, black square for a bomb)
  • Hide IP of official servers from pause menu (streamers worried about DoS attacks while streaming)
  • Further reduce frequency of Mr Wilhelm's vocal appearance
  • Tweak color names
  • Prevent identical Value (for white/black colors) similar to how identical Hue is protected

  • Allow the Audio/Controls/Graphics options menu at run-time in both local and online games

  • Fix for player names not being visible on kill/death

  • Reset the countdown when adding/removing bots when exiting the Choose Player screen in local multiplayer, matching the online multiplayer behavior

  • Visuals: Push back smoke Z-order so that it is always behind gameplay relevant objects (e.g. bombs)
