Posted by unknownworlds 12 years ago

Hey everyone,

We’re glad to see the servers are full and that Gorilla went over well! We got some great coverage around the web which made us quite happy.

We want to the patches coming frequently, instead of doing bigger less frequent patches. With that in mind, we wanted to release this follow-up patch to address some of the issues that came with last week’s release.


  • Onos Stomp moved to alt fire and now it knocks down marines
  • Moved Onos smash to separate HUD slot.
  • Onos will not collide with medium sized structures anymore.
  • Added a stoop animation for Onos, which triggers when you move through low corridors/doorways. This will trigger most of the time instead of auto crouch and does not slow the Onos down.
  • Increased Onos hide armor.
  • Adjusted Onos movement collision model.
  • Increased Onos acceleration.
  • Added a bitmap based font rendering system.
  • Added Lerk "roosting", fly into a wall or ceiling and hold the movement modifier button to latch on (Thanks Matso!)
