Patch 0.93.662390 (10 May 2018)
- Welcome to all our new players and all our die-hard fans!
- We've just released a patch to re-enable harvester crushing, something many of you remember from our launch and have asked for. Harvester crushing now works in the following way...
- Multiplayer Quickmatch / Ranked games preserve the no-crushing rule for Guardian and Renegades Harvesters
- Skirmish and Custom Multiplayer Games now provide a checkbox option for turning harvester crushing on/off.
- Single & Multiplayer Co-Op campaigns have Harvester Crushing Turned on by default.
Patch 0.93.660409 (28 March 2018)
- Hey everyone!
- Thanks for the heads up on our March Update. It seems our custom map loader in the game was disabled. That issue is now fixed as of today.
Patch 0.93.660084 (21 March 2018)
GENERAL BUG FIXES:
- Fix for jump jet infantry being order-locked when a save then load is performed while they are mid-flight.
- Added a map validation check that looks for too many stacked structures and warns the user of such on save.
- Fix for crashing when pressing shift while the instance tab is active (in the terrain editor).
- Adding a warning message on save that displays if resource nodes are found near any start markers (can potentially break the AI by placing resource nodes around the starting points).
- Limiting playable bounds setting to 11 and above when creating a new map with the public terrain editor.
- Fixed a case of the camera constraint function oscillating between two values when the playable bounds is small in the map editor.
- Fix for replanning failing when the target area is covered by too much stuff (movement failed to reach clicked destination despite there being a path to get there).
- Optimization attempt #2 at reducing CPU load when pruning producing objects (server could run slow when a lot of units are queued up and buildings are being destroyed).
- General Save/Load fixes to handle rare cases where continuing a battle would not work properly.
- Timeout a lobby join after 10 seconds so that players don’t hang forever waiting to join.
- General bug fixes to AI to optimize performance and handle a few strategic situations better.
- Correction to allow for correct country code to be set when quickmatching.
- Various back-end improvements for performance and frame-rate.
- Improved data transmission between server and client
- Fix for soft-lock when someone disconnects before joining a multiplayer game.
- Fix for showing weapon FX under unexplored fog of war which would reveal other player’s weaponry and location of battle.
- Player names in lobby should update a little more frequently.
- Steam “Played with Users” should be updated now.
- Handled an issue where some custom maps could fail to launch in Multiplayer.
- Fix for getting disconnected when connecting to an instance if the instance takes a long time to load. For example, when downloading a custom map for the first time.
- Fix for not being able to launch a multiplayer game with everyone is assigned to a random team.
- Prevent players having blank multiplayer game names.
- Fixed three separate issues which would have manifested itself to players as a “random crash”.
- Battlecam tweaks to improve angles and identify the highest priority events.
- Fix for flickering load screen on some systems.
- Re-enabled Anti-Aliasing on ATI cards. Also, removed AA slider if AA isn’t available.
- Improved memory usage. Game optimized to use less.

Happy New Year!
After a few quick fixes for 8-Bit Invaders immediately after release we're now focusing on the bigger picture related to balance and funtionality changes that you've made us aware of.
In terms of fixes, we're really happy with everything we've knocked out in the last few days and we're excited to have you try out these latest changes.
Give it a look, and let us know if we missed anything!
GAME FIXES / IMPROVEMENTS:
- The tooltip for the Gorgon no longer incorrectly states that it can crush.
- The radar blip for Invaders harvesters has been increased in size such that you can see them underneath the resource point icons. This is a temporary fix until we can replace it with a more aesthetically pleasing fix.
- Fixed issue with Hordes and Invaders harvesters where crushable units would run away from them even though they can't crush. This general only happens when playing against a Hard or Insane AI.
- Fixed passability issue on Orc-Jaw Ford map causing harvesters to be unable to dock at some resource nodes.
- The Destroyer pit tooltip no longer says it needs power.
- Potential fix for allied AI not respecting the factions 1-4 resource node "tap" mechanic, also system should not assign initial harvesters to a node more than once.
- The allied harvester resource node "tagging" duration has been increased, which should prevent Invaders factions from stealing from their allies. Armies harvesters increased to 30 seconds (was 20); Hordes harvesters increased to 20 seconds (was 10).
- Battlecam hotkey should not work while in Metaverse overworld.
- Fix for dragging units in meta mode over the garrison structures, which would cause the drag icon to be placed over the unit icon, which would then cause the unit icon to not be draggable anymore.
- The Guardians Drone Center and Scorch tank are no longer pointing to the Renegades tech building for their tooltips.
- Fix for Earth Seige Co-op Mission so doesn't display a count of how many titan bays were destroyed (titan bays are only tracked for Gold Star Visual).
- Fixes that allows Achievement "Hexes are the Future" to be completed.
- Improved game stability.
- Blast Bug: Min range increased to 250 (was 200), Shot cooldown increased to 3.2 (was 2.2); this reduces DPS to 5.14 (was 7.2). Change was made to both ground and air attacks.
- Xeno Dog: Melee range increased slightly to aid in attacking larger objects, Base damage of acid pool reduced to 8 (was 12)
- Invaders Harvesters: Health reduced to 350 (was 500), Move speed reduced to 200 (was 250).
- Titan: The armor type on the Titan was incorrect (Light). It has been changed to Heavy, which was always intended.
Patch 0.93.629806 (21 December 2016)
- Faction 5 & 6 Harvesters teamed with the player will not "prefer" to select resources nearest to the player over its own resource points closest to its starting position.
- Very rare memory leak was fixed - we doubt anyone ran into this but it would have caused a crash if you were playing many games repeatedly with different custom maps.
Patch 0.93.629543 (16 December 2016)
