That's right, it's time for the highly anticipated v103 update! While there are a host of unlisted feature changes, the star of the update is, without a doubt, the new Map Editor - those who have not yet had the chance to make maps of their very own may find the official editor to be a bit more user-friendly than the old method. There is a detailed "My First Map" tutorial by Oxeye right here, if you're looking for a good place to start.

I almost consider the news of a staff member being here greater than the update.

Both are great! Got some homework now, but looking forward to playing the new maps and messing around in the editor.

What about being interested in both, and then making new bounty maps? :P

It works for me.. Version 104a ^_^
Are you sure that you completely deleted the Cobalt game folder before doing a clean install? Remember to back-up your maps! :D

Yep. Deleted every single Cobalt related thing and then installed from the newest installer.

edit:
Alright. I think one problem is you can't use periods in the name of maps. When I'd highlight a map with a period in it, it'd crash the game. It seems to be working now without it.

And I can open tiles in the map editor by holding shift + t but I don't see why t alone crashes the game.
Rather annoying. A simple misclick and bam you lose progress.

T works for me.. it does the same thing as Shift + T, but I like the latter more.

Just did a complete fresh install of everything including the pre-requesites.
Still getting the error.

Spoiler

Running on Windows XP.

edit: Above error turns out to be caused by having a controller in when using the editor. Confirmed by several other users.


Game is also now laggy for me now. It was so much smoother in 102. :(
Triggering destructive tiles makes the game lag until I restart the entire client. The menu is just choppy. Shooting enemies makes the game like skip.
Everything was so much smoother before.

I have plenty of good things to say about 104 but the negative ones just ruin it for me.
I don't know why everything is fine and dandy for everyone else.



I also still can't fix this error on my map.
Spoiler


All these problems occur on two completely different computers.

Emcitement: Did any of your stuttering get fixed by v104?

there was a special bug that REALLY screwed things up when triggered by alarms
