I pity the developer who has to make the full changelog. With over two months of constant progress being made, there have been... quite a few changes.

I already posted these three videos under the YT video thread, but I might as well post them here to show off the cool new stuff.

I'm still rusty with my backwards driving, but it's good to see there are people who can.

Doing the irc test with you guys was pretty titts. Although there's some things that got annoying.
e.g. The nametags of vehicles. In my opinion it's rather useless.
The instances like /race gave me a really hard fps drop and my car started jumping up and down. Anybody else got the same problem?

I have some serious doubts about that 'dead: info' thing, remember the test where a 2.2 deaths occured every second? Imagine the spamming in the chatbox, unless the info is local that might be a grave mistake. Now I will cry for not knowing about that test...

The killfeed for the next public test will most definitely not be outputted to the chat. I agree, that would become ridiculously spammy.

You only have to download a few MB, so don't worry about that, the problem is that as soon as the download link becomes available, the site usually crashes (or becomes unavailable) due to the massive amount of people trying to be first in, so it is best to wait at least 10 mins for the traffic to clear  ;)

Will this test be another 48-hour test, or just 24-hours?

Are you serious? It says 48 hours a few times on the news and on their Twitter.

Relax, it will be a 48hr test  :)

they should give the download when the timer starts so we have time to install it before we play it

yes, but it would take the pressure off the servers when the test starts, thus allowing people to be ingame quicker

Perhaps we could make a bigger one of these in this test?

work was ongoing until 2 minutes after the timer had finished, last minute changes were made to the client and server, so you would have had to download again anyway, and devs would have to pay twice the bandwidth :P
