    This patch owns hard. But when you play, you can feel the need for Onos and Jp etc. It just makes it all that much sweeter that they are right around the corner.

    to prevent confusion: "Doors can get destroyed by all attacks when locked" this change did not make it in and will be added in 190

    Hello NS2 crew, I played today on 32 player server and it was so smooth for a time until loading time for server came, my fps was from 60 down to 11 fps.

    example: After a teamwon, round restarted and we all joined in ready room there came a big fps drop for a minor second. When in-game before the round started another major fps drop. Then this issiue comes from time to time in the match, and it doesn't need to be alot activity in the screen for the fps to drop all the way to 11fps and below.

    Anyone else notice this issue? I'm 100 % sure it's the server fault :)


    buy the way, greate patch.

    The abbreviation for Old Ass Gamers is OAG. OAG is something more then just a word, it makes us gamers understand the passion. The passion that you never want to stop playing video games. That age is just a myth and not even age will stop us.

    Surprised to see the update. Dota 2 and tf2 were updating first. And then ns2 came and overloaded my steam client. :V

    Removed alien melee upgrades. I was mistaken. Bad Charlie. Other alien upgrades will be coming.


    Can someone elaborate on this one?

    Sounds great! I remember when whip-reflecting and Gorge spitting were just new ideas; look at them now...

            Once the infestation reaches the Command Chair, the process begins. One Gorge enters the chair to provide the necessary height. Another climbs on its shoulders to access the controls.

            A Gorge Lab is quickly established, staffed by microscopic Gorges who work tirelessly to unlock the secrets of Frontiersman Technology, stopping only to change their lab coats when they become dirtied. Once the research progresses to a certain point, the Gorgecom gives the order. Nanites are called into service.

            The armature forms. A chosen Gorge, tested many times in the field of battle, enters the machine.

            Servos whir; miniguns spin up in diagnostics; an Exogorge is born.

    Updated. Went to run and got this error message.

    NS2.exe - Entry Point Not Found

    The procedure entry point
    ?Transition@AnimationGraphState@M4@@QAEHPBVAnimationGraph
    @2@PBVModel@2@QAHH@Z could not be located in the dynamic
    link library Engine.dll.

    Spark editor functions correctly. Game just shows that.


    Apparently I just needed to validate the files as Steam corrupted them.

    Wouldn't it be cooler if the whip had a % to whack back grenades?
    Starting with like 25% then upgradeable to 50ish?

    Doors can get destroyed by all attacks when locked - This means marines have to repair doors to lock again? Or they cant be locked again?
    Whips will throw grenades back to the marine in case the redirected grenade would hurt a friendly unit - You mean direct hit or if there is a gorge behind whips, GL is useless cause grenades come back? What if more grenades then 1 are landing? I guess it drops back only 1 at the time
    Removed alien melee upgrades. I was mistaken. Bad Charlie. Other alien upgrades will be coming. - Until that? Aliens have -3 upgrades?

    What about the bug which caused players cant or hardly enter the CC? Its very annoying. Sorry I dont see this fix in the list.

    Hit / miss; Yes. Or rather doesn't notice the grenade at all. Do not need to play animation for a miss. The notes now says whip will repell grenades that would hurt anything alien (seems really advanced codewize :o )
    I'd rather see a percentage to whip back ANY grenade.

    ARG, RAGE FACE. YOU NERfed the gorge and the aliens in general, turret spam is as bad as ever and I'm not playing again until build 190. I thought 188 was terrible, but this... this is terrible... compared to 188.

    Sorry UWE, but it had to be said, you have really made this game unfun.

    This build is the best build yet. FPS is so fluid. Getting over 100 in the RR. Between 40-50 while actually playing.

    Good job UWE, Woot!

    I think the fact that that the "aliens being nerfed" has enraged you enough to result in this post disproves any kind of larger point you were trying to make. For one, clearly you care enough for it to piss you off, which means the game's coming along nicely. Furthermore, for every ounce of fun you lose in a bout of insanely disproportionate forum-anger, the rest of us more than gain back by witnessing the hilarity of your childlike tantrum.

    +1
    Does this means marines keep their armor upgrades but aliens lose melee upgrades. 4-5 bites in end-game ????

    so you used a bunch of intelligent sounding words, but in truth, achieved nothing. Thanks. I'm not going to be continuing this potential argument further.

    I fully support ns2, but at the moment, as a game(rather than a tech demo), it's terrible. Prove me wrong, explain to me why ns2 at it's current state is fun, interesting, and balanced(enough).

    Well at least if the aliens got nerfed marines might actually win a bit more (without turret farms).

    I second this; for some reason it's no longer possible to walk into command chairs any more:

    Just tested 189.

    Distance placing cysts and hydras is brilliant, and long overdue.

    FPS increase, smoother animations, and less hitching.

    Probably best build ever for me.
