BattleDawn 1 Windows Client

We’re still working on (large) improvements but this windows client should help anyone currently suffering from browser issues or the likes and should also last into 2021.

Please note that we’re aware of some issues, please report any others in the skype groupchat or just PM me.

Networking should be much more stable and faster on the windows client, so enjoy that. We also wanted the map to be instant, but that isn’t working yet so we’ll do that later.

Thanks everyone. :slight_smile:

Mac client is also coming, Linux may be done based on demand. We’re very interested if Wine can run this.

Mars was broken on the earlier version. Should be fixed now.

The Windows Client has been updated to version 1.5.3.

1.5.3 brings the following changes:

  • Reduced FPS to decrease resource usage.
  • Performance optimizations.
  • Fix of an issue causing capacity to display improperly.
  • Fix for an issue with Minigames that caused health bars not to show (though it’s a bit like a disco now…)
  • Fix for an issue causing the Battle Simulator not to work.
  • Moved the map from the server to the client, greatly improving loading speed and reducing BD’s network usage (after an initial larger download).
  • Improved Retry logic further (should be even more stable!)
  • Changed the dreaded “Connection lost” popup to refresh the screen instead of forcing you to reopen the client. Experimental - please report any issues surrounding this screen. To be completely safe, close and re-open the client when it happens. It should be a huge convenience though, I basically rewrote the disconnect logic so that you can just stay on the world now…

By the way, we sneaked in an update 1.5.2a that not everyone noticed about a month or two ago, the difference is minor, but you may want to click your own squads in the Radar for a handy feature (thanks @Moe for the suggestion!)

There’s some other minor stuff in there too if you can find it.

We’ll see if we can setup an updater/launcher with patch notes later so we can assure everyone is on the same version and easily inform you of changes. :slight_smile:
