We'd like to thank everyone who played a part in making this our best release yet, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it.

I saw the release date becoming 7 January 2012 while it was 6 January first. Did we re-release it under the same number with those few very important bugfixes?

Neat, downloading via Desura (Linux) now... lets hope it is updated there already ;)

Yes, not so important though unless you try to kick/ban.

I've been trying to figure out why I like this version so much better than 1.1. I mean I can't say it's the HUD cause then I'd sound like a Call of Duty fanboy (cause that's the only real thing that changes in COD games) and it's not the maps cause most of the maps were ported from 1.1. Yes, the game looks slightly different but that couldn't be it. It had to be something subtle. And then I read your list of things:
* View bobbing

Yep, this is definitely it. It's almost unnoticeable in the game but I had about a minute of recording and when I looked over it, I can pretty much see it clearly. That might be why this game seems so much more fun to me now. I'm not saying that feature alone is what keeps me playing (it's the headshots too :P) but I think it's safe to say view bobbing makes this game at the very least, much more enjoyable. In my opinion of course ;)

I would have guessed "less annoying hit sounds" :p

Hmm, the desura linux version is still on 1.1 :(
And problems with updating it? How does it work in general btw? Do you have to wait for an Desura employee to do it for you or do you have direct access?

No idea, the Desura guys did up the v1.1 stuff themselves when they first released the Linux Beta.

The guys from desura are asking for a contact to you Quin, so that they can make you the admin for managing the game on Desura. If you PM me an email adress I can forward it to them.

If PM'ing you were an option that would work, but my Desura account (qreeves) has current information and is listed as the Leader of "Red Eclipse Team". Still doesn't tell me much about actually publishing it there though.

I think the guy that wrote me will explain you how to do it then, no big deal probably. I just need to forward him your email and he promised to manage it with you... alternatively you can of course talk to him directly (account "Protektor") if you have a desura account.

Edit: below the message I got from him in answer to the question I posted on the desura forums.

If you have the developer of Red Eclipse contact me here via PM then I can make him the owner of the game and he can do the updates himself.

What he means is that when an auth user changes variables on someone else's server, those changes are reverted with another command, and/or when said auth user leaves the server.

I have a problem...
As of the new release, no crosshairs other than the default set will be accepted by the game. This occurs both when I use the in-game command to change the crosshair texture and when I directly edited one of the existing textures without renaming it(only to see whether it would work).

Also, with the option of changing the crosshair for each weapon, what would the commands be(if they have already been implemented)? If not, where would the file that tells the game which crosshair to display(I would like to analyze it, see what I can learn...) be?
