Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Striker Superstars] Release Notes - Version 4.33

Hair is HERE! – You can now buy yourself a new hair cut from the shop, what’s more you can choose from literally thousands of colour combinations. If you want to stand out from the crowd then it’s time to get your hair on.

Fast Equip – We’ve added a panel that appears whenever you buy an inventory item (besides drinks) which will ask if you want to equip the item immediately.

Improvements
• Performance improvements across the lobby servers.
• Dribbling speed has been toned down a little.
• Client update detection, if a new version of the game is available then a panel is displayed telling you to refresh your browser.

BUGFIXES
• Post match ‘Enter Lobby’ button no longer partially obscured for the tutorial.
• Memory leak fix and asset optimisation to reduce memory usage and improve performance.

We hope you enjoy this new version and we look forward to your valuable feedback.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Striker Superstars] Unfinished Matches: A Few Comments

Apologies, the mistaken did-not-finish icon is symptom of a known bug which we are working on and will have fixed as soon as possible. It will probably be affecting other aspects of post-match processing on the server too, but it is intermittent so it’s hard to spell out exactly what the impact is.

As for penalties for persistent quitters… we recognise that it’s an issue and have been trying to fix it by rewarding non-quitters more than by punishing “quitters” (because as you say, it’s not possible to tell when they’re wimping out just because they’re losing). It’s something we will of course keep an eye on and reassess after each change.

It is just the text on tabs used to say Other but it has now been changed to ‘Drinks’ in the shop and inventory.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Striker Superstars] Has good potential but could use a few tweaks...

The ability to slide at any time is something we’ll be looking at. At the moment the opposition has to be in possession. If you’re intercepting a pass with a slide, it may be that they released the ball just after you started the slide.

Hi,

Below are the changes for the latest version live.

Web
• Striker Superstars
- Fix for Kongregate users receiving registration rewards each time character is created
- Fix for incorrect ‘Credits Not Awarded’ error messages
- IE7 + 8 Cross Browser Styling

Art
• New escape menus to show reasons to not leave game and one for each match type
• New queueing menu and systems
• Removed match preferences from options panel
• New server is restarting panel added
• Changed consumables to drinks throughout UI
• New keyboard overlays to remove lock cursor key
• Changed server info panel to have Cash Prize Match instead of Tournament Match

Code
• Match queue form updated to be a bit clearer, you can pick the match type you’re interested in a lot easier now.
• The queuing panel will now show a “Match is about to start” message just before going into a match, and the “Leave” button will be disabled. How long you see this for will vary (it depends on how long a webservice request takes to come back). People were previously able to quit the queue despite the fact that the server considered them committed to a match. We think this change should reduce if not eliminate instances of short-handed teams in the pre-match team info.
• Bottom status bar now changes to show a countdown when the Lobby Server is in shutdown mode, and certain features will be disabled at various points during that countdown.
• Match chat is now available after the match has finished.
• Chat reconnect in match if lost during the match
• Implemented nicer quit menu for different match types
• Lots of connection error work for the match server during and before matches.
• Lots of work on the input focussing bugs, tidied up how focus is controlled
• Re-aligned the lost connection match gui panel.
• Persist match zoom, view type, what UI should be shown and full screen preference so that it does not need to be redone in each match.
• Using ‘Rating’ instead of ‘Rank’ in the top bar

  • Pro-coaching now completes immediately
  • Holding T in the match now allows you to see the opposition team also.

The overall team chat was an option we originally considered but didn’t go with as previous experience with Football Superstars has shown that the grieving and insulting between teams was very hard to police. We have some ideas on how to facilitate cross-team interaction but they’ll be coming in a future version :)
