1.20.7 has arrived. This patch is focused on dynamic lighting, and the Protoss console.

Specific Changes & Improvements

    • Revamped the Replay UI to have all the observer mode features as well as a brand-new production tab.
    • Implemented code changes to optimize the dynamic VRAM requirement down to 2gigs. The optimization will not work for the following cards: NVIDIA 590, Radeon HD 4850 X2, Radeon HD 4870 X2, and Radeon HD 5970 2GB Version
  • Added a new option “Use Mouse Confine” to control if the mouse should be confined or not. Added a hotkey ‘alt-F1’
  • “+” will now re-display the last 10 chat messages in game.
  • The hotkey Alt + S has been assigned to open the Select Map frame from within the Create custom game menu.
  • Players in chat channels are now ordered by time joined.
  • We have updated the art style of the Protoss console.
  • The Gavel is back. (Chat room operator commands)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed crash instances related to chat commands.
  • Players will now be re-queued automatically if they fail to matchmake.
  • /dnd now properly works when set in game.
  • The /help command now works within the game lobby
  • /ignore is now working correctly in chat & game lobbies across different gateways.
