    I like these mini-builds better then waiting forever between builds, to be honest.

The games they made are amongst the best games I've ever played, and after mmo's the games I spent the most time playing. If you see me complaining about a feature, realize this is because I love the game and want to help improve it.

    May have been a bug.

    It happened to me before, unless it's a constant for you?

    Thanx but Mine is crashing in this version too :(

    It is crashing at the second splash screen when creating a local server or connecting to a server.

    Is there any way to disable those splash screen ? I love them, so great, when they relased first most of them were my wallpaper more than a month.
    But now I just want to play NS2

    Been like a year since I last played NS2. Played a bit again since the build 191, but I still get horrible game performance on every server. No matter what my graphics settings may be.

    Maybe my GTS250 512MiB SLI & Ph.II 925 @ 3.0Ghz just aren't enough anymore?

    I'm going to keep it short:

    Whip/grenade interaction seem to be bugged. There appears to be a long delay (~0.5 sec) where the whip "pauses" the grenade, like Neo in Matrix, before the whip flings the nade.

    The delayed detonation on Mines is making them a waste of resources. Mines are only good against Skulks, as higher lifeforms can blow them up in seconds without taking damage. It would be much better if the do not blow up if the enemy moves out of range.

    The hit detection is noticeably less accurate. Jumping Gorges are are tougher to hit than Fades, and they take down structures in seconds.

    We're another step closer to Gorilla! Yay!

    lol i love this Gorilla concept. everyone keeps saying "NEXT PATCH ONOS".... they don't understand not putting a number on the onos patch makes it so you can release it whenever you want.

    Nice patch. Thank you for fixing the physics on the pipes in reactor, now you can shoot skulks sticking their head out ^^


    Balance feedback:

    I feel like the time it takes for marines to get ready for the next alien is too long. Basically if you have anything less than full health and armour as either side then you are at a huge disadvantage going in to a fight. Yet, marines repairing each other armour takes ages, so they either need to constantly camp near an armoury or die becuase they push up too much and can't heal themselves fast enough. I guess the welder will speed repairing armour up a bit, but it feels like it should be something every marine can do relatively quickly since it's so essential.

    I also feel like the reload times are too slow. Often I feel like I'm fighting against the game rather than the other player. I think the rifle does too little dmg to skulks but it's probably just down to performance and once that improves then hopefully it won't be so bad.

    I definitely agree armor welding could be faster.

    I submitted! I submitted!

    accidentally though, the game crushed, stuck, I was pressing buttons and keys, and then I see: thank you for submitting :-)

    that was my report who made it, I am sure ;-)

    oh not sure if this is specific to this build, but did you guys 'lock' animations or something. Animations such as those associated with jumping sometimes prevent actions from being performed e.g. shooting shotgun which can become frustrating. Kind of like how it takes longer to switch between spike and gas if you've just used the gas ability than if not (coz of the ending gas animation i believe?). Is this related to the parasite switch speed problem?

    Has hit registration gone to hell for anybody else? There was a server where aliens just attacked the cc relentlessly and barely ever died

    Really, who would build such a shotgun - we have better ones today, not this slow crap...
