Can we make the client properly shut down when we click the effin X? I'm getting kind of pissed having to terminate it from task manager while it happily downloads some shit.

Don't see it mentioned anywhere here or can't find it in client. But option to have lobbies with/hosted by friends appear on top would be pretty lit.

Map uploading bugs sometimes. Sometimes you can't download mods. Connections are not stable in lobby. 50% of the time I get desync. No desync on regular client.

Some things
- Changing your ava is literally impossible: https://puu.sh/DhqA7/b2f74c5eff.png
- You can't check previous aliases?
- If you keep rightclicking on your username it keeps opening more of these windows https://puu.sh/Dhqwc/9cb5cf6f29.png
- I only have 10 friends online which is way less than my average and my own username has already disappeared of the screen because the online user window is anything but compact. About 21 usernames fit there on the new client while about 37 of them fit on the old.

Could probably continue with some more things but i closed the client and it refuses to be reopened kappa

Hello everyone,

As I understand it there is a client test (something or other ICE what what).

Are there any instructions for running the client under Linux? The github page just talks a lot about intellij (the youtube vid as well)... other than that I'm clueless.

Please help me play my favourite game! Thank you. <3


EDIT nvm I managed. Thanks!

I aggre with Blackster + pls make it possible to close all the usernames of a group at the right side. i really dont need to see all the mod names all the time. make an option to close and open groups instead. in addition being able to chance the order of the groups would be great too - friends online are more important than the names of the mods who are online

other than that it looks great. thanks for the hard work!

Made a small list of things about the client, hope it helps (since I can't post pastebin I'll just copy paste it):

-there should be an option to make the background just black (improves visibility imo)
-there is no "reveal replays folder" in the menu on the top left (there was in the old client)
-notification settings don't work (still shows notifications of friends coming online/going offline)
-mouseover in the player list on the right in chat doesn't work (in the old client it showed info about the player; mousover of icon works though)
somehow it works now, but it's rather inconsistent (sometimes takes long to show, sometimes instant, sometimes disappears without you moving the mouse away)
-player list doesn't show a small icon of the map that's being played
-game list doesn't show games hosted by friends first (make it an option)
-friend hosts aren't highlighted (in the old client their names were shown in light blue (I think) instead of the normal white; maybe use the same colour as you set for them in the chat)
-can't sort the tile game list by host name, map
-"sort by names" should be renamed be renamed to "sort by title" to be more clear what it does
-vault live replays doesn't show start time
-vault online replays search:
what is "player ID"? player name?
gives an error when searching with Player ID (I tested with a number and a string)
-vault local replays only shows some replays, doesn't show any from April for me for example, even though they are in the replay folder
