During the past months, I've been working on Auto Updater and Beta Launcher polishing and bug-fixing - as a result, a new version (v0.9) will be released in about 2 weeks.
As soon as I've received feedback that the new application versions are stable, I'll begin working on the 1.0 versions of these programs, which will have a completely new (and fancy
) design and will be rewritten from scratch, using more up-to-date technologies (like .NET Framework 4.0 and Windows Presentation Foundation). This process will undoubtedly take months, but we believe it will be worth it. I'd like to ask for your
help in making these new versions the perfect tools for all MechWarrior: Living Legends players!
In this topic I'd like to gather any and all ideas and suggestions regarding the Beta Launcher
systems. Feel free to post anything
that you would like to see implemented and is related to this application.
(Co-thread: Auto Updater feature requests and suggestions
Please keep in mind that I might or might not confirm your proposals, as the roadmap is not fixed, and there may be last-minute changes, cancellations, and so on (pretty much the same reason why we don't announce everything we're working on in the game either). Please don't let this discourage you from posting though - authors of the ideas that actually get implemented will be mentioned in the release notes.
Thank you very much for your involvement! Your insights are always greatly appreciated.
Should you have any questions that you feel inappropriate to ask in the forums, please feel free to send me a PM or e-mail, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Planned (confirmed) features:
(These are the features that are likely to be implemented in some form.)
- MWLL news displayed in the Launcher.
- "Clean shader cache on startup" checkbox ((TLL)Siilk)
- Option to easily switch to MWLL debug binaries and back. (Stahlseele)
(These are the features that you've already recommended, but are not yet confirmed.)
