Gang Garrison 2.6: The Haxxy Awards 2013 update

2.6

Ladies and gentlemen,

Without much ado, I'd like to present to you the joint launch of

Gang Garrison 2.6

and

The Haxxy Awards 2013!

Yes, we are breaking with our tradition of only releasing big updates on April Fools' day. We're also breaking with our tradition of doing a beta before launching an update. Doesn't that mean things are more likely to break? Probably! But we hope that we learn of problems more quickly this way, and we really needed to get a release out now to push the development pace again.

So go, download the new version and enlist for the Haxxies!

Here are the changes:

Changed:
* Balance changes
* Switched to wareya's new collision system (hopefully reduces bugs)
* Switched to new internal updater system
Fixed:
* Various bug fixes
* Prevent GG2 crashing on Windows 8
* Prevented spectator tracking of cloaked spies and enemies
Added:
* Name-change field in lobby
* Custom crosshairs
* Optional display of certain teammate statistics
* Map rotation shuffling (on by default)
* Automatically downloaded main menu backgrounds - submit your art, and lots of GG2 players will see it!
* Server-sent plugin caching - no re-downloading!
* Optional automatic restart for server-sent plugins, skipping the prompt

You can find a more detailled list of changes on Github.

What the OP doesn't show you is how release was delayed by 2 hours because of serious bugs :hehe:

You have an incompatible plugin. What do you have?

The ini contains new two parameters: One of them is the crosshair image's filename, and the other is whether it has fake transparency (so that the backing color may be removed if it doesn't).

It's preliminary support.

That error happens because somehow a rocket is spawned and then steps while it has no owner. /for other devs
