    War of Rights - Patch Notes

    February 22nd - Update 97 Released!

    - Reduced the amount of crashes when joining a server. With our recent internal testing, joining server roughly 100 times, the previous build would crash roughly 20% of the times it joined a server. With the new build (this update), the amount of crashes have been reduced to around 5% or less. This data is while joining an empty server, but we are hopeful the statistic will also hold up when joining populated servers.
    - Tweaked initial smoke when firing weapons to be more similar to how real gunsmoke behaves.
    - Added LODs to all rifles, greatly reducing the amount of polygons in the scene, possibly improving your FPS depending on which graphics card you have.
    - Kneeled reloading with a long rifle is now more complete – it still needs a polish pass and new sounds.
    - Removed the "14" headattachment in 1st person while playing as the 14th Brooklyn.
    - Fixed the UI on the shooting range displaying inverted hitmarkers.
    - Fixed the boundaries on the Drill Camp not working, no more parachuting.
    - When clicking Respawn on the Drill Camp, the spawn selection UI will now instantly appear instead of having you die and then showing you the loosing morale screen.
    - Character wounded sounds are now correctly muffled whenever a player dies.
    - Shadows on weapons have now been enabled, though it may be slightly buggy in some casse.
    - Minor character updates.
    - Music will now be playing while the ingame menu is open.

    February 13th - Update 96 Released!

    - Added 15th skirmish area to Antietam: Cooke’s Countercharge - After several hours with no reinforcements, Union General Greene is forced to withdraw from his salient in the West Woods. Confederate Colonel Cooke orders a countercharge towards Mumma Farm in response to the fleeing Federals.

    - The skirmish area info screen now displays the overview map of the active skirmish area.
    - North Carolina sack coat added to some of the characters of the North Carolina regiments.
    - Fixed a few visual issues with the hardee hat and hair border line.
    - LOD updates for character attachments.

    February 5th - Update 95 Released!

    - Replaced several regiments on the skirmish areas with the newly created ones in order to properly represent the units that fought at the particular skirmish areas.
    - Improved the morale loss scaling algortihm depending on the amount of players on the server, resulting in skirmish areas lasting longer and allowing for more kills.
    - In Formation and Skirmishing now also improves stamina regeneration. In Formation gives an improvement of 50% where as Skirmishing gives an improvement of 25%.
    - Reduced headbobbing by 50%.
    - Added a victory jingle for the winning faction as the skirmish round ends.
    - The victory screen will now display how many players died In Formation, Skirmishing and Out of Line, instead of random numbers of Killed, Wounded and Missing.
    - Enabled character shadows if the shadow setting is set to Very High.
    - The regiment selection UI no longer resets itself while the player is selecting a regiment/class after the victory screen has been shown.
    - Activating the text chat while the worcam is active, no longer makes T and Tab unresponsive.

    January 31st - Update 94 Released!

    - Added 14th skirmish area to Antietam: Skirmish at East Woods. During the late afternoon of September 16th, General Hooker, by request of General McClellan took his corps across Antietam creek at the upper bridge in order to locate the rebel flank. At 1800 hours the 42nd PA and 3rd PA reserves were sent out in a skirmish formation to probe the East Woods for rebels. The skirmish that followed when Hood’s Texans engaged them lasted until dark at 2100 and would cause a few hundred casualties (among them the 42nd PA Colonel). While not often talked about, the evening skirmish before the battle early next morning was an important event as it alerted Lee as to the direction of the Union attack the next day and he would thus shift his army strength to counter Hooker in the morning at Hagerstown Turnpike and Miller’s Cornfield.

    - Major rework of the Bloody Lane skirmish area to better reflect the area during the battle.
    - Most likely greatly optimized the smoke when theres 100 or more players on a server, greatly improving the FPS.
    - Improved the headbobbing algorithm resulting in smoother camera movements between movement speed transitions. The camera going crazy if you are standing idle while exhausted and getting shelled by the artillery should also no longer be a problem.
    - Material pass on most weapons.
    - Added zoauve specific hairstyles.
    - Fixed up hair issues under certain light conditions.
    - Replaced 12th SC on several skirmish areas. Expect major changes in available regiments soon.
    - Fixed the UI target on the shooting range of the Drill Camp.
    - Fixed your current regiment not being shown when pressing T.
    - Improved the third person revolver aim animations while kneeled.
    - Corpses will no longer have weapons that cant be picked up.

    January 26th - Update 93 Released!

    - Most likely fixed the sound stutter bug that occured on the 150 player stress test event.
    - Most likely fixed the bug where the voice chat stops working for all players.
    - Made the gunsmoke scatter more when a large formation fires, to reduce the tube look as it drifts with the wind.
    - Slightly increased the performance of the server and the clients.
    - Made the battle ambience on Antietam play inside the forests again.
    - Other players will now play sounds as they walk/run through water.
    - Made the Springfield M1842 more accurate when firing the round ball.

    January 20th - Update 92 Released!

    - Increased server player cap from 100-150. NOTE: This is very much a test meant to push our systems to their limits. Do not expect a stable and issue free experience. We may very well roll this back in the next update depending on the results we're getting.
    - Tweaked the wounded sounds. They now don't always trigger and their volume has been decreased as well.
    - Updated Burnside Bridge skirmish area vegetation to better match its real world counterpart in 1862.
    - Added a few UI fixes such as fixing the swapped factions on the tab screen.
    - Improved the performance of the smoke.
    - Added footstep sounds to the officer movement animations.
    - Switched to a new algorithm bending the trees and other vegetation objects in the wind.
    - Temporarily disabled the doors as we suspect they may be negatively affecting the performance of the server.
    - Reduced the likelyhood of players firing their rifle up in the air - If you dont see the enemy directly aim at you, there is very little chance that their bullet would actually hit you if they were to fire.

    January 17th - Update 91 Released!

    - Added first version of wounded sounds as well as melee attacking sounds to the game. The sounds include lots of different nasty ones when dying as well as some spoken words. This, initial, version of the wounded sounds include rebel spoken lines. The system will be expanded upon with several voice actors as well as more refined events for specific actions as the game develops.
    - Minor performance improvements on the server.
    - Fixed a bug where some players on occation could get a terrible FPS where their FPS normally would be fairly good.
    - Added limbers to all artillery batteries on Antietam.
    - Added Quicktime animation variations.

    January 10th - Update 90 Released!

    - Increased the amount of players on a server from 90 to 100.
    - Added 13th skirmish area: Nicodemus Hill. In this skirmish area, the Confederates are to defend Jackson's artillery positioned on Nicodemus Hill from the Union attacking from the direction of Miller farm. During the actual battle, Stuart had placed his horse artillery on the commanding viewpoint offered by Nicodemus Hill on the night prior to the main battle, and the commanding view allowed Washington’s, Chew’s, and Pelham’s batteries to offer devastating fire down the Union lines. It was by the sheer weight of numbers that Hooker’s I Corps was able to break the Confederate left, despite the fire from the hill which he ignored in favor of pushing to Dunkard Church. In this alternate scenario, we present the possibilities of what would have happened had Hooker diverted some of his attention to the lightly defended hill and attempted to silence Stuart’s horse artillery shortly after the fighting in the Miller cornfields.

    - Did a balance pass on the starting morale amount across most skirmish areas - specifically tweaked values where the Union has more advanced weaponry than the Confederates.
    - Increased the time it takes to capture the point on skirmish areas where the capture zone is very large, such as on Hookers Push and Millers Cornfield.
    - Tweaked the formation system so if you kneel while having the In Formation buff, you will then get the Skirmishing buff instead. This is done to provide an alternative to kneeling. Without this change - a bit of a slower reload while kneeling is in works as well, there is little incentive to stand up and fight when you can half your hitbox size by kneeling without much of a tradeoff in doing so.
    - The fence line at the Piper Farm capture area took some artillery hits and was severely damaged.
    - Major overhaul of the UI which should have reduced the amount of crashes related to the UI. Expect a few UI behavior bugs with this update.
    - Added WIP skirmish area information screen when spawning the first time on each new skirmishing round.
    - The correct death screen is now showing when the player gets killed while having the Skirmishing buff.
    - Improved the tab screen to display what your purpose is on the current skirmish area, Attack, Defend. It now displays the amount of players on each team along with a hopefully working scrolling feature.
    - While using the newly introduced worcam, when right clicking, the flags now appear much faster.
    - Added new Double Quick and Sprint animations with a revolver and with a sword.
    - Fixed a bug where if Dynamic Depth of Field got disabled, there would always be a bit of DOF in the background.
    - Removed the timer from the Ready stance which would force the player into Shoulder Arms if the player had been moving for more than 3 seconds. Now players can walk at the Ready indefinately although at a slower speed than when in shoulder arms.
    - Fixed an animation glitch in first person. When turning 180 degrees while sprinting, the character would put the rifle back to Shoulder Arms and then grab it again when the player gained speed.
    - Reduced the risk of bullets appearing to bounce off of fences. From our internal testing, it has only been a visual glitch. Bullets have always passed through the fence in the direction the projectile was fired.
    - The Dynamic Depth of Field effect will now activate very slowly and dissapear instantly if the player looks into the distance, this should get rid of the screen sometimes seeming to blur randomly for no reason.
    - Made the worcam able to better detect wether its inside of the skirmish area or not.
    - Added some extra effects to the desturated background when for example the spawn screen is showing.
    - Made the Historical Camera work again which allows you to take historical screenshots by pressing ""Print Sreen"" twice.
    - Fixed 2 rare crashes when joining a server (Other crashes when joining a server still remain).
    - Added a temporary fix for the 20th Maine / Union solders, spawning at the confederate side.
    - Made players lag less in the distance.

    December 29th - Update 89 Released!

    - Released the WoR-Cam for creating cinematic videos. To use it, press F9 once spawned. The focus of the camera is to provide a cinnematic tool more so than a spectating one. Because of this, the camera has a relatively high amount of inertia to counter sudden jarring mouse movements.

    Control the camera movement by your WASD keys and its direction by your mouse.

    Pan the camera left, right, up and down by holding the middle mouse button and move the mouse.

    Holding the left mouse button will change the camera field of view, effectively working as a zoom function.

    The right mouse button will spawn a faction flag at the location of each player to help locating them.

    Left control lowers the height of the camera and spacebar increases it.

    Scrolling up or down on the mousewheel will change the speed of the camera while holding shift will increase the camera speed for as long as it is pressed.

    - Made the Dynamic Depth of Field focus correctly when standing close to trees as well as made it react slightly faster to changes.
    - Hit sounds now correctly trigger again.
    - Placed 3 inch ordnance cannons throughout the battlefield. All positions and numbers of pieces are historically accurate. While not functioning yet, the cannons provide nice battlefield props which will be expanded upon with more assets as they are being completed.

    - Made the capture zone reset when a new skirmish area starts.
    - Improved the Double Quick animations.
    - Fixed a crash related to the terrain.
    - Increased CSA morale on Hookers Push.
    - Updated the hair and eyes of the characters.

    December 17th - Update 87 Released!

    - Made the Drill Camp available again.
    - Limited the amount of Privates in 1st US Sharpshooters and 42nd Pennsylvania to 11.
    - Hooker's Push skirmish capture area size increased.
    - Added a dll file that would prevent the game from starting for some players if the file was not present on their computer.
    - A few potential crash fixes.
    - Fixed an animation glitch in 1P where the rifle would quickly jump in front of the camera when transitioning between Double Quick and Sprint
    - Adjusted the position of the rifle on screen while in Melee Mode with a bayonet attached.
    - Fixed an animation glitch in 3P while moving without a weapon.
    - Fixed the characters sometimes getting black eyes.

    December 15th - Update 86 CRYENGINE 5.4 Upgrade Released!

    - Introducing the 12th skirmish area of Antietam: Piper Farm. This skirmish area is inspired by the 7th Maine’s push past the bodies at the Bloody Lane, the Piper Cornfield and the apple orchard towards the farm buildings themselves, which had acted as headquarters for the Confederate Wing commander General Longstreet. At 1300 hours, whereas most of the fighting was taking place elsewhere on the battlefield, the brigade commander of the 7th Maine, Colonel Irwin, ordered the 7th alone to move forward against four Confederate brigades. The day after Antietam Irwin would be relieved of command while Major Hyde, the one which lead the attack, would be awarded the medal of honor in the 1890’s for his actions where an otherwise doomed regiment got out alive having lost 50 casualties of its 200-man regiment against the four confederate brigades defending Piper Farm.
    - Updated double quick animations (with several slight variations) when carrying a rifle.
    - Updated revolver aim, fire & moving while aiming animations.
    - Updated moving with a sword while in melee mode.
    - Trees and bushes have had an art pass with updated models, textures and billboards.
    - All uniforms have had a specular material pass which will result in clearer colors, a dark union blue uniform is now more consistently dark blue for instance.
    - Heavily reduced distance blur and used new anti-aliasing settings introduced in CRYENGINE 5.4. This change will drastically increase the overall sharpness of the game.
    - Several updates to the freelook system now means you’re able to use it to much greater effect while, for instance, reloading. No more odd angles!
    - Reduced the amount of time needed to go from at the ready to aiming by 0.5 seconds, resulting in faster aiming.
    - Fixed facial hair LOD’s using the wrong material.
    - Added several beech tree forested areas on the drill camp map.
    - Updates to several ground textures.
    - Added quartermaster wagon to the drill camps and a few other places.
    - Updated environment probe and time of day settings slightly.
    - Due to a newly introduced engine bug, we have had to replace the ghosting effect when low on stamina or suppressed with some other screen effects.
    - Increased the defending team’s starting morale slightly on most skirmish areas.
    - Removed “fort bush” from the Pry Ford skirmish capture area and heavily increased the defending team’s starting morale.
    - Recompiled the shader library. Expect to run into some compiling shaders the first one or two updates after the deployment until the library is back to its former self.
    - Fixed a crash related to a memory leak when viewing the player roster (TAB).
    - Fixed a ton of potential crashes.
    - Fixed the collision model on one of the broken fences that made it very difficult for players to get through.
    - Improved the performance of the collision meshes on the trees.
    - The servers are now able to startup much faster after a new update has been deployed.
    - Whenever the servers auto restart or a new update has been deployed, the time of day now automatically gets set to 6 in the morning.
    - Fixed a bug with the Union cavalry troops where if they had the sword equipped in melee mode and then switched back to the Sharps Carbine, they would be unable to get out of melee mode and fire their weapon.
    - Friendly fire is now enabled for melee attacks.
    - Improved revolver animations in first person.

    Known issues

    - The game will often not shut down as it should (this results in the game being at the "running" state on steam even though it's nowhere to be found. To fix this, open up the task manager and locate the game process running under the "details" tab.
    - While leaving a server works it is currently not possible to join another server before you've restarted the game. Joining another server will result in being stuck in a loading screen.- Drill camps are currently not available. They will be so in the near future.
    - Ambience audio areas are buggy - expect odd results every now and again.
    - Several camera animations need work after the engine upgrade.
    - Several decals throughout the game are buggy and will look off to you.
    - Character eyes & hair shaders are at times buggy resulting in some bad visuals.

    November 7th - Update 85 Released!

    - Added an additional skirmishing buff. It requires 3 players within 12 meters of each other in order to activate. The morale cost of the various buff states has changed slightly. If you die while In Formation, the morale cost is 20%, if you die while Skirmishing, the morale cost is 60%, if you die while Out of Line, the morale cost is 100%.The other effects of the skirmish buff are generally the same as the In Formation buff, they are just not as strong as strong. You can't have both types of buff at the same time. The In Formation buff takes priority if your formation allows for it. We are still to add the correct death screen when killed while skirmishing, right now it just displays the normal In Formation death screen.
    - Changed the way the ticket costs are calculated upon a death when theres below 20 players on a server resulting in matches lasting longer.
    - Minor updates to the Drill Camp.
    - Updates to the Mumma Farm scene of Antietam.

    November 4th - Update 84 Released!

    - Players will now be sliding less if moving very slowly.
    - The sun flare now deactivates as the sun sets, fixing the moon having a flare.
    - The time of day automatically gets set to 6 o clock in the morning as the servers do their daily restart or as an update has just been deployed.
    - Attempting to adjust sights on the Sharps Rifle or Sharps Carbine no longer causes aiming to not work.
    - Reduced CSA starting morale by 20% on the new Pry Grist Mill skirmish area.
    - Small fixes on the Pry Grist Mill skirmish area.
    - Replaced the old rocks on the Drill Camp with the newly added 3D scanned rocks.

    November 2nd - Update 83 Released!

    - Improved server performance.
    - Improved player interpolation. Players will no longer jitter back and forth when trying to stop or stand still.
    - As each skirmish area starts. The artillery will now randomly pick between 4 strength states. Heavy, Medium, Low or none. This should make the artillery feel different on each skirmish area.
    - Morale for the attacking team has been increased by 20% and 30% for the defending team. The morale ratio for the defending team is now back to what it was before the formation buff system was introduced.
    - The clouds will no longer dissapear by setting the ingame "Smoke" setting to low. Clouds are now controlled by the "Shading" settings.
    - Updated the grass, making it look much more varied and natural while at the same time improving its performance.
    - The grass now casts shadows, resulting in a more contrasty look.
    - Fixed an issue with the Free Look system where the camera would suddenly appear in odd places.
    - Minor tweaks to freelook.
    - Added a 4 second delay before the formation buff deactivates, if you are no longer in a formation.
    - Fixed a few client crashes.
    - Added a particle effect when a bullet hits water.
    - Updated some of the visuals on the Drill Camp to correspond with their look on Antietam.

    October 28th - Update 82 Released!

    - Experimental feature to reduce CPU load on both clients and servers by delaying the update of distant players by X amount of frames based on their distance to the client.
    - Fixed a bug that caused the reload animation to be hidden if the player started reloading while sprinting.
    - Replaced the last old rocks on Antietam and some of them on the drill camp map.
    - Reduced artillery barrage shell amount by 20%.
    - Increased Miller's Cornfield skirmish area capture area size in an effort to bring a wider range of possible outcomes and tactics to the area.
    - Tweaks to the time of day settings around noon.
    - Updated melee movement animations for bayonetted weapons.
    - Fixed a server crash.

    October 23rd - Update 81 Released!

    - EXPERIMENTAL. The new player limit is 80 players. This new player count is highly experimental and lots of client crashes or server crashes may occur.
    - Increased server performance slightly.
    - Fixed some animation glitches.
    - Possible fix for dead bodies frozen in Shoulder Arms.
    - Added an impulse to players when they get hit, slightly pushing them in the direction the bullet was flying.
    - Fixed faction selection screen not disabling a locked faction, allowing you to select CSA but presenting you with Union regiments.
    - Increased the starting morale amount for both the defending and the attacking team by 30%.
    - Decreased point capture speed by 50%, giving defenders more time form up in a last effort to retake it instead of rushing in one at a time while being Out of Line.

    October 22nd - New experimental update released!

    - The new player limit is 80 players. The ingame server browser still displays that each server is capped at 64 players though that is false as you will eventually see it write 78/64. This new player count is highly experimental and lots of client crashes or server crashes may occur.
    - Increased server performance slightly.
    - Fixed some animation glitches.
    - Possible fix for dead bodies frozen Shoulder Arms.
    - Added an impulse to players when they get hit, slightly pushing them in the direction the bullet was flying.

    October 21st - Update 80 Released!

    - Dying while out of line now costs 4 times as much morale as dying while in formation.
    - Rebalanced all morale counts to reflect the new formation buff morale effects. Defending teams have had their starting morale count decreased by 75% while attacking teams have had their starting morale count decreased by 65% due to the fact that it is quite a bit easier to maintain a formation when being relatively stationary while defending. Players should expect the current balance changes to be very rough as such dramatic changes such as these will require play testing in order to fine tune.
    - Added death screens to show whether or not you were killed while being in formation or out of line.
    - Fixed aiming animation issue while being in melee mode with a bayonet attached.
    - Fixed animation loop issue of aiming while being in an emote stance.

    - Switching active weapon, saber, carbine, pistol, as 4th PA Cavalry should now work more reliably.
    - Small server performance optimization introduced.
    - Reduced game size.
    - Initial fix for joining a full server - would previously give the user a black screen. It now returns the user to the server browser. A more elegant solution with proper UI messages will be added soon.
    - If the join server fails the main menu will be loaded instead of trapping the player in a black screen.

    October 14th - Update 78 Released!

    - Added 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry (dismounted). The 4th PA was used as dismounted skirmishers in support for other regular infantry regiments in the center (and some in the northern part) of Antietam during the battle. The 4th PA was quite heavily engaged throughout the day, losing its commander Colonel Childs to a cannonball during the fighting.
    - Added new skirmish area Pry Ford: This skirmish area represents one of the most north-eastern parts of the battlefield. Between Union commander McClellan's headquaters at P. Pry House and the S. Pry farm and grist mill at Little Antietam lies Pry Ford. The skirmish area itself offers a very open playing field with plenty of possibility of massing fire by lines.
    - Added M1859 Sharps carbine.
    - Added M1860 US Light Cavalry Saber
    - An icon in the lower right corner of the screen now pops up, indicating whether or not you have the formation buff (In Formation / Out of Line).
    - Fixed various bugs with the formation buff not enabling while in formation.
    - Banning should now be more persistent between server restarts until the ban is revoked.
    - Made capturing of the capture zone scale on the amount of players on the server. With a scarcely populated server, a max of 3 players can capture the zone at the same time. On a full server, 12 players can capture the zone at the same time, but the capture effect of each player is reduced, so get your men in that zone and capture it!
    - Added WIP improved melee movement animations.
    - Slightly increased player proxy to avoid some of the clipping issues presented in the last patch.

    October 6th - Update 77 Released!

    - Added first version of the formation buff system. This system (to be expanded upon in the future) is part of our ongoing efforts at making tight group play a viable strategy and, hopefully, eventually the norm in-game. In order for the formation buff to kick in - players will have to gather in a tight group or formation. The specific numbers of players required to activate the formation buff and the area covered by the formation buff will be tweaked upon during the next several updates. We will also soon display on the UI if you're "Out of Line" or "In Formation" to give you better feedback. If the formation buff is active you will recover faster from the effects of incoming artillery and gunshots. You will also get affected less by said effects. In the near future morale cost when dying will also be heavily reduced when being under the effect of the formation buff.
    - Added first version of our dynamic player speed system. This system is being built with the goal of easing general formation movements. Its initial version will check for player positions a few meters in front of you. If a player is detected, your speed (at quicktime or double quick) will be sped up slightly until you've cought up with the person in front of you. The system will also lower your speed if you're getting far too close to the person. In the future, we'll experiment with the possibility of tracking players to your sides in an effort to help with line movements also.
    - Reduced player collision area size, meaning tighter formations will be possible.
    - Added initial banning system. While not complete, we now have the option of banning offenders on our servers.
    - Aiming in melee animation transitions fixed.
    - Animation transition going from at the ready to charging improved.

    October 2nd - Update 76 Released!

    - Further tweaks to remote player interpolation, resulting in a smoother experience while playing on a stressed server.
    - Aiming will now cancel most transition animations, allowing the player to aim slightly faster when for example exiting the reload animation.
    - Other players should no longer grab their rifle repeatedly while at the double quick or sprinting.
    - Extended the loading screen all the way to the point when the player is able to select a faction as well as made the music play throughout the loading screen as well.
    - Fixed a bug causing the left hand to sometimes twitch in random directions when walking.
    - Fixed the officer sometimes pulling the revolver down while moving.
    - Fixed a slow blend bug while viewing an officer starting to walk with the sword.
    - Added descriptions for all playable regiments in the regimental/class selection menu.
    - Added fourth War of Rights track "1862" to the main menu.
    - Added the latest patch notes to the main menu.

    September 29th - Update 75 (released)

    - Officer draw line by pressing Q has been reenabled.
    - Made the text chat activate and deactivate a little more reliably.
    - Updated strafing animations.
    - Tweaked server interpolation settings resulting in a more smooth experience during heavy server load instances.

    September 28th - Update 74 (released)

    - The morale cost of each player death now depends on the amounts of players on the server. If the server is scarcely populated, you no longer have to kill roughly 200 enemy players in order to win the game by enemy team morale loss. For example, if the server has 64 players, the morale cost of a death is 100%, if the server has 32 players, the morale cost is 200% and so on.
    - Camera effects will now only trigger if you were actually hit by a minieball or a melee attack on the server. Previously they would sometimes trigger if you actually werent hit, and sometimes they wouldnt trigger, even though you got hit.
    - Reduced the blackness effect when getting stabbed by a bayonet.
    - Added a special WIP sound when yourself and other players gets shot in the head.
    - Blood pools from dead players will first spawn when the dead body is lying still, causing blood pools to always spawn underneath dead players.
    - Decal pass on the buildings of Antietam.
    - Added more destroyed sections of cornfield on various skirmish areas.
    - Updated the Slouch hats, giving them a more worn / out of shape look.
    - Improved the LODs for the equipment.
    - Fixed a crash immediately after pressing Join Game in the server browser.
    - Reduced the amount of force applied to a killed player in melee, reducing the amount the bodies are being pushed back.

    Known Issues

    - Pressing Q as an officer to draw a line is currently disabled until the crash fix is implemented.

    September 20th - Update 73 (released)

    - Added first version of a directional based melee system. When attacking you will always hit the center of where ever your screen is pointed at, making it possible to aim your hits.
    - Changed bayonet & sword stabs required to kill someone from 1 to 2 in order to bring the non vital areas being hit into the damage equation. It is the plan to replace this with a hitbox damage system that will determine whether the player requires 1 or 2 hits to take down (for instance torso, head = 1 hit to kill, legs, arms = 2 hits to kill) and thus bring in a higher amount of player skill to melee as well as a higher degree of uncertainty as to the outcome of the fight.
    - Added screen effects when the player gets hit by the bayonet or hit by a rifle swing. Additional sounds for the effects will be added in a future update.
    - When the player gets hit by a rifle swing, the amount of available stamina gets somewhat capped. When stabbed by the bayonet, the amount of available stamina gets severely limited.
    - While in melee mode with a bayonet attached, if the player starts aiming and left clicks just before being fully aimed, the player will no longer unintentionally thrust with the bayonet.
    - The player can now only move at the quicktime speed while thrusting the bayonet or swinging the rifle.
    - When reload or fix/unfix bayonet is cancelled, the player can immediately start moving, without having to wait for the soldier to shoulder arms.
    - The soldier no longer pulls the rifle up to the chest when double quicking in melee mode. While in melee mode with a bayonet attached, the bayonet is always pointing forwards.
    - Added a new sprint animation for the officer when wielding the sword, when not in melee mode.
    - Fixed an animation glitch when reloading a long arm rifle while kneeled, the rifle would spin 360 degrees. The fix will soon be applied to short arms as well.
    - Added footstep sounds when double quicking with a sword.
    - Possible fix for a potential crash when joining a server.
    - All screen effects and stamina related sounds now resets when respawning or a new skirmish area starts.

    Known issues

    - It is still not possible to melee attack through the gaps in a fence.

    September 17th - Update 72 (released)

    - Added a new spawn system eliminating the long lasting issue with spawning inside eachother and thus getting stuck.
    - Minor updates to Sherrick & Otto farm area.

    September 14th - Update 71 (released)

    - Added the 9th skirmish area: Sherrick & Otto Farms. This skirmish area features both Otto & Sherrick farms with the point of contention in between them. While no combat took place at the farms, they did have a centric role during the battle as they were located right between the lines of the two armies (in close proximity to Lower/Rohrback/Burnside Bridge). This resulted in them being looted (their civilian occupants having fled before the battle) by soldiers of both sides as well as eventually being used as hospitals after the battle as well as having many bodies buried on their grounds.

    - Fixed a bug where the capture circle didnt automatically pop up if the point was being captured.
    - Fixed a bug where the compass didnt spin if the compass automatically popped up.
    - Fixed an animation glitch with the charge with bayonet animation.
    - Added the new rocks to the forest of the Drill Camp.

    September 4th - Update 69 (released)

    - Faction selection now correctly disables a faction if the faction is full.
    - Added inertia to the compass rotation.
    - Readded the cock hammer sound when entering Ready.
    - Fixed glitchy aiming while in doublequick with a bayonet fixed.
    - Fixed muzzleloader reload sound playing on the sharps rifle while doing kneeled reloading.
    - Added a bit of grass to the new destroyed parts of Millers Cornfield.
    - Fixed a reload issue with Revolvers and Rifles which caused the player to not being able to directly aim and fire after having reloaded.
    - Fixed a bug which caused the player to exit Ready if moving left, right or backwards while at the DoubleQuick. Now the player only immediately exits ready if moving forward at the DoubleQuick or Charging.
    - Fixed known audio issue from patch 68 where gunshot sounds didn't echo in the environment.

    September 2nd - Update 68 (released)

    - Added new skirmish area: Miller's Cornfield: An hour after the early morning actions of General Hooker and his division near the Miller farmstead, the damaged cornfield was subjected to a new infusion of blood to its soil, this time from the men of Hood's Confederate division. While at first successful in their attempt to take the cornfield back, a withering fire from several sides mean that terrible casualties are wrought.

    - Added destroyed cornstalks for Millers Cornfield.
    - Removed a bit of the fence at the CSA side of Burnside Bridge.
    - When pressing A or D, instead of having the character walking to the left or to the right, the character will now walk sideways in the desired direction (Though they do still have a few issues with the rifle twitching for a splitsecond, which will be fixed soon). This greatly reduces animation twitching. After strafing for 3 seconds, the character will twist their whole body and walk left or right to make strafing for longer periods look more natural.
    - Added better WIP movement animations while at the Ready.
    - Minieballs being fired were too large, their size have been reduced to better fit the size of the muzzle they were fired from. This is purely a visual change and doesnt affect hit mechanics.

    - Made the artillery explosion particle effects seem more violent to better fit with the new shell fragment whizz sounds.
    - Reduced various crashes when joining a server (though some still persist).
    - Fixed a bug which caused the ambience sounds to play at 10% the volume they were supposed to play at.
    - Tweaked the level lighting during the night, morning and evening hours.

    Known issues

    - Gunshot sounds have been reset to how they previously sounded.
    - Work in progress strafing & ready movement animations - expect rifle glitches.

    August 22nd - Update 67 (released)

    - Fixed invisible players.
    - Fixed a potential server crash.
    - Time left as well as the new morale system, will automatically show up if either is critically low.

    - Added partial cover to the Union spawn point at Hagerstown Turnpike.
    - Made the night and morning a lot more foggy and awesome.
    - Further increased the amount of fog in Millers Cornfield.

    Known issues
    - Dynamic Depth of Field currently not working.

    August 19th - Update 66 (released)

    - New skirmish area introduced: East Woods. This skirmish area is part of Confederate General Hood’s counterattack into Miller’s Cornfield and the East Woods in the early morning hours of the battle.The push would push the advancing Union forces back through East Woods & Miller’s Cornfield before stagnating due to heavy losses by the flanks. This skirmish area marks the first time the Union is on the defensive.

    - Introduced regimental & class limitations. Two regiments per side per skirmish area will now be available with limited class slots: 1 officer, 2 NCO’s & 1 flag bearer available per regiment. This system will eventually include rank selection & weapon limitations in a regiment based on a percentage (50% P53 Enfields & 50% Springfield 1861’s for instance).
    - Introduction of morale states: combat ready, engaged, taking losses and breaking to replace tickets. This change masks the exact status of the two teams and lays the foundation of several morale-centric mechanics to be implemented in the future.

    - Tweaked the sky during the sunrise/sunset.
    - Fixed a bug from yesterdays patch which sometimes caused players to spawn at the wrong skirmish area.

    July 24th - Update 64 (released)

    Sixth skirmish area: Hagerstown Turnpike The next skirmish area up for release is the continuation of the 5th skirmish area to be released, Union General Hooker’s push down through the cornfield in the morning hours of September, 17th, starting the Battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg. Upon leaving Miller’s Cornfield, the Union regiments 2nd United States Sharpshooters, and the 6th & 2nd Wisconsin attacked the Confederates (Starke & Taliaferro Brigades, of Jackson’s Division) consisting of Louisiana & Virginia regiments, who were defending the Hagerstown Turnpike, a road running next to the cornfield. Its fenced in sides and the road itself functioned as a clear line between Jackson’s forces located in the West Woods and Hooker’s just south of the cornfield.

    The Hagerstown Turnpike skirmish area is an open battle area, fit for line battles. It’s a small area compared to some of our bigger areas and thus should ensure carnage and action from the start of the match until the end. The skirmish area will also mark the last time the Union is to be on the offensive for a while - we look forward to be seeing how well our Union players are at defending in the next skirmish areas to be released!

Miller Farm and through the Miller Cornfield only to be engaged south of it by defending Confederate General Ewell's Division at about 7 AM. This marked the beginning of the Battle of Antietam and it is the first skirmish area of a number of areas focused on the northern fighting of the battle (Hagerstown turnpike fighting and Miller's cornfield & East Woods CSA countercharges to be featured in several other skirmish areas).

    June 25th - Update 12 (released)

    - Fixed a few bugs the last patch introduced
    ------> Doors in buildings can be opened again
    ------> Push to talk deactivates when you release the button. In the last version, it remained active for good.
    ------> The Fix Bayonet animation now works properly

    June 24th - Update 11 (released)

    - It's now possible to rebind the keys. Only available from the main menu and the solution is very much a work in progress
    - While on the server, players can now respawn and select a new regiment and class
    - Graphics options as well as key bindings are now remembered when restarting the game.
    ------> There are currently some issues with the user interface if you start the game in full screen
    ------------> To temporarily fix it. Hit alt+enter twice. It will make the game windowed, and then it will make the game full screen again, where the buttons in the user interface will then be working.

    Next update really needs:

    Ability to reload at Range (like the Revolver)

    Class selection screen (like not having to rejoin the server every time you want to do this)

    After the secondary patch released, the smaller one. It made it so I can't even launch the game. Is it just me?
