  • Air teching after getting hit out of a shorthop should no longer lock out a character's ability to air block.
Oleander :oleander:

Paprika :Paprika:
  • Fixed minor paletting issue during StandH
Tianhuo :Tianhuo:

New Features & Bug Fixes

Character Select
  • Fixed Oleander's off-by-one palette error.
In Fight
  • There are now voice indicators under HUD portraits for when your opponent is talking in online fights.
  • Fixed bug where player names in fights could show as [unknown].
Pixel Lobby Browser
  • Servers now sort by number of players active.
  • Holding up or down on lobby browsers will now scroll through list faster.
Pixel Lobby

Features, Changes & Fixes

  • Big Balls of Violence now display the name-tags of the players involved in the fight.
  • Health-bars now display above players while in the Salt Mines. (Saltmines 2.0 prep)
    • The Bar will change in color from green to red as health depletes.
  • Zone partitioning has been implemented in pixel lobbies, in preparation for Salt Mines 2.0 coming soon.
  • Transitioning between areas in the pixel lobby is a lot smoother now.
  • Voice Isolation between Lobby rooms has been applied. e.g. If you're in a cave, players outside of it will no longer be able to hear you.
  • Announcer has been disabled in online training.
  • Several steps have been taken to lower the amount of data lobby sends to your game client overall. This includes in fights.
  • Added extra information to the occasional bug where you can get locked out of fighting in pixel lobby. We think this may have something to do with Salt Mines, but the "you were involved in another fight" error should now tell you what the server is complaining about. Let us know if you get this error message please!
  • Fixed memory leak where the UI could potentially make an infinite amount of name-tags -- albeit very very (very very) slowly.
