Hotfix 2 for Wreckfest’s June Update

Team Bugbear News

Dear Wreckers,

No rest for the wicked! We’ve just unleashed another hotfix for the June Update, addressing a critical issue found in the dedicated server software that caused the server to crash randomly. Additionally, this hotfix contains a wealth of other improvements to the user interface, vehicles and tracks based on your feedback to further enhance the game experience. Please find the changelog below:

TECHNICAL/USER INTERFACE

  • Dedicated server no longer crashes randomly.
  • In Lobby, server name and server message are now displayed correctly and updated appropriately in the Options tab.
  • Admin can no longer get stuck in the Options tab when the race countdown reaches 10s.
  • Leaderboards and Spectate buttons now work on game controllers when waiting for others to finish the race.
  • In multiplayer, the rewards popup no longer flashes on the screen when loading the next track.
  • In Lobby, ESC icon now has the correct description “Game Menu”.
  • In the Leaderboards screen, the tab highlight now works correctly.
  • In the Quick Race menu, it’s now possible to rotate the camera when selecting the car.
  • In the Quick Race menu, AI Class now changes correctly even after changing car and AI Set repeatedly.
  • In the Quick Race menu, when returning to the Track tab the view now correctly centers to the previously selected track.
  • The game no longer crashes at the race start due to a missing AI Set start after playing a quick race with a custom AI Set from a mod, removing the said mod and then proceeding to a quick race again without manually setting the AI Set.
  • In Photo Mode and Replay, Spherical Camera zoom now works again.
  • In Replay, Play/Pause button now looks correct when toggling state.

VEHICLES/AI

  • American 5 cameras now match those of the other cars.
  • American 1 locked differential and American 5 open differential now have correct power distribution.
  • AI players no longer ram each other right after the green light on short tracks.

TRACKS

  • Taking the joker shortcut on Mixed 4 no longer results in the position list going haywire – also fixes other similar cases where the alternative route is on the same stretch of the track as the starting grid.
  • Starting grid is now correctly sorted on tracks where the grid is located on an alternative route, Dirt Speedway Figure 8 being the most obvious example.
  • Small Stadium no longer has a mini Borg ship floating above the stadium.
  • Concrete barriers like found on Figure 8 now break up easier when hit.
  • Steel arm-cos on Mixed 4 now have proper collisions.
  • Improved checkpoints on Tarmac 1, Sandpit 1, Sandpit 2, Sandpit 3, Dirt Oval, Mixed 7 to prevent cheating.
  • Fixed obstructed Replay cameras found on Speedway 1 Oval, Sandpit 1, Sandpit 3.

NOTES FOR CONTENT CREATORS

  • Direct reference to a scne file is again allowed in the event settings bag file (evse).
