This release, as you can see, is pretty small and only contains bug fixes. Progress on Root Access was a little slow after Christmas due to a very busy January and February (lots of traveling, World of Love indie games conference and a wedding/stag do to attend). In addition to this we’ve been working hard on a small side project, however, we’re not in the position to release details on this just yet.
We’ve fixed two very important bugs for Root Access. The memory issues on the client and server have now been fixed which means the server will now remain running! We know some of our testers have been trying to connect to the RA server over the past couple of months but found it down. This shouldn’t happen nearly as much anymore!
In regards to the issues people were experiencing with sound, the entire system has been rewritten and we’re now using hardware OpenAL. In layman’s terms it should work a lot better now!
