I've been using MSE for a while and it does it's job, but it completely missed a malware attack (Spyware Remover, another one of those horrid Spyaxe style "You've got malware (ie. our software) so pay us to send you the removal for it" extortion attempts, so I'd augment with a good spyware blocker if you're going to use it.

  • Fixed an issue with Server Clan search not listing SOD servers

USABILITY


  • Fixed an issue with binding Shift as the Use key

AUTOBALANCE


  • Changed Autobalance to more aggressively place you with Friends
  • Changed Private servers to force Autobalance off
  • Changed Ranked servers to allow Autobalance off
  • Changed Autobalance to allow a team size discrepancy of 2 (to facilitate getting Friends on the same team)
GAMEPLAY


  • Changed the Friendly Fire to penalize napalm damage less than regular damage
  • Changed Overtime to constantly increase both team VP at the same rate (10% of maximum VP per minute)
  • Fixed an issue where the tank would fire an extra shot after exiting the driver seat
  • Fixed the Ball Hog achievement (Assault) to count CPs captured because of implicit turn end due to all defenders being killed
STATS


  • Changed Swarm to implicitly be Ranked for PC Listen servers (provided difficulty is at least Medium)
  • Changed Badges to only allow earning each 2 times per match
  • Changed Repair and Auto Repair ScoreEvents to have a maximum per match (200)
  • Changed Repair Feat to have a maximum per match (66)
  • Changed Ranked Swarm to only require two human players
  • Fixed an issue where players could host a Ranked Swarm match on Trivial Difficulty (Medium is the minimum requirement)
DEDICATED SERVER


  • Fixed an issue where the user configs would not work if there were trailing spaces on lines
  • Fixed an issue where SOD servers were not able to host certain game modes after rotating
  • Fixed some crashes related to hosting service server queries
  • Fixed an issue where the hosting service server query would return the incorrect max players for SOD servers
  • Fixed an issue starting SOD servers on virtual machines
  • Fixed an issue where SOD servers would become unplayable after being idle for more than a day
Hmmm Steam is reporting its over 4GB!! But normally its wrong...

Steam event notification should hit everyone in the Steam Group.. Just post up if you are not in the group and need to be added. Or if you have a friend in the group anyone can invite you to it.
