Release Post-Mortem

Posted by Toumaz on July 31, 2010
Stats, Updates

Everything went better than expected, one might say.

The only real issues that popped up were an immediate one, which was due to me being a total klutz and having forgotten to clear out a few tables, which caused the master server to disconnect any and every player after they had finished a game. There’s also currently an issue related to players leaving games, which will be fixed shortly, as well as a few minor client bugs (available loadout won’t refresh, unable to ready up) that might take a little while longer to fix until I can push a fixed version.

By popular request, I’ve added a list of achievements and ranks to stats.sealhunter.se. Have fun trying to get some of them – I can be rather mean, at times!

All in all, I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of players (or rather, by the amount of time you guys have poured into this already) with more than 1,200 matches finished in less than a day, and I’m very happy to see that people seem to be enjoying the game!

‘Til next time, and happy hunting! (108,106 seals and counting.)

you forgot to mention the pop up enemies… every now and then in multiplayer matches a seal or penguin will re appear, usually near the end >.<

that just lag from multiple ppl or what?

I would assume that could be from a somewhat higher ping than usual and the client failing to predict events properly – essentially, the higher the ping, the harder a time SH will have when it comes to “guessing” what will happen to an enemy before the server actually tells it what has happened.

It’s quite hard to definitely fix it, I’m afraid – it depends if it happens under very special circumstances for you, in which case I might be able to look into it. It is far more common with activists and penguins, no?

Hey Tomas Olander you are G, man… This game fucking rocks, the physics are wicked and everything is awesome. A few bugs still exist but other than that, i salute you. BTW, on 3-4 players, when guys appear at the bottom of the screen, they like ”skip” over the terrain and it can make them hard to kill.

actualy, on several games today and yesterday, others noticed the same thing. the ping was only 200-250… the average

That is actually a rather high ping, and it’s probably why you’re experiencing many of them.

Hey man, sick ass fucking game, ever since the first SH has been out me and my friends have been begging the gods for an online multiplayer version… And you’ve answered our prayers after so long.

Anyways it totally exceeds my expectations and whatnot. But I seem to have problems joining some games for the most part. My friends’ game I can usually join no problem, but 90% of all other games I cannot join for any reason, and they all show pings of ‘???’

It could totally just be my computer, but do regardless do you know why this is? Thanks a lot yo :)

Naeroon, have a look at http://forums.sealhunter.se/index.php?topic=303.0 – it could be a problem on their side, or a very, very weird bug.

Hey Toumaz, you should make a post on the site regarding hosting because SO many people are trying to host without setting up their ports and they are probably getting very frustrated. I mean I got really pissed when I couldnt host but then I saw in the forums that I had to set up my ports then I did and I was anxious to start playing this game. Nevertheless, many people don’t read the forums BUT they would read if you posted it on this front page, I’m sure if you made a post people would be less confused and more happy.
