A post on the
Natural Selection 2 website
has an answer from developer Unknown Worlds
to the musical question "Where are my bugfixes!?" (thanks Ant
). They admit
that while most NS2 players are not having issues since the latest update to
their action/strategy sequel, some are experiencing a variety of problems to the
extent they say: "Itís the wild west out there." Word is:
This is not the
first time UWE has released a build that is not perfect, but we always come good
in the end. Thatís what we are working to do right now. Build 256 is under
construction, and it exists solely to sort out the performance, input lag,
crashes and bugs that are hurting you in Reinforced. Build 256 put in a good
show during playtesting last night. Apart from Exosuits appearing as female
marines, it was generally well sorted.
It will probably arrive on Steam next Thursday. We know that is too long, and it
much longer than we want it to be. Unfortunately we canít push harder. Many
members of the team took a few scheduled days off after Reinforced, to recover
from lack of sleep, lack of family and an overload of coding. That means 256 has
been a little slower out of the gate than we would like. But it is on its way.
In the 26 updates we have made since launch (An average of one every two weeks)
we have never left you hanging when we have reached too far and fast Ė We are
not about to start now.
