    Build 261 released, also Humble Bundle

    Build 261 is out. It features commander key remapping (AT LAST - no more fumbling around in config files). Also say goodbye to drifter rushing with enzyme - it now requires a shift hive, as well as getting a nerf to resource cost.

    No sign of Eclipse though.

    Also, NS2 can be got for peanuts in the latest Humble Bundle, which means tons of newbies arriving.

    Good for the health of the game I suppose; might get people playing who otherwise wouldn't have bothered buying NS2.

    Thanks Quanta!

    Might be an idea if we hang out a bit in the group chat over next week or so

    The patch sounds really great on paper! I'm curious as to what "minimalistic HUD" option means. Can't wait for Eclipse though. Oh, and that Soon™-guy from the other thread might even be joining us on Sunday (says a well-informed source). Maybe we can have a little reunion ontop of the masses of new people...

    Bah! I'm in no need of one. Especially not one of bad quality, they're not robust enough, these englishmen. How do you think my kids earn their daily cold soup anyway?

    Great! now I can appreciate just how much I suck at this game! No but seriously, this is quite useful for a noob like me. Also, pretty sweet screenshot from the first match, when a marine gets out of a phase gate just as it explodes:

    Oh god, my voice sounds awful.

    Why is it that whenever your voice is recorded it sounds weird?

    One always critices their own voice. I think it is because you hear your own voice through vibrations in you skull and jawbone which makes it sound a bit different than what other people hear. You can't really escape it but just accept it. And dont worry, you have a lovely voice

    Next time I will probably break the stream between matches so it easier to navigate between them. Making one big continous file doesn't make it easy to find a certain point that you are looking for

    Nice to see that you are enjoying it. I am usually a support-like character like a gorge so my view from the game might not be the most exciting. But hopefully you can get a good overview of the game and it might be fun to watch the game from an other point of view. Also, if you want to get serious you could probably use the Streams to analyze what went wrong (on the whole) in a particular match and so on.
