Blocktrix 0.68 Beta Released
12/10/06 at 12:03am
 
 Blocktrix 0.68 Beta has been released.  Nothing too exciting... Some fixes and cosmetic changes mostly.  Here's a list of the changes between 0.68 and 0.67:
 
Quote:

- Added warning message option when closing blocktrix while connected (Suggested by Trinity)
- Updated Bass.dll to latest version (v2.3)
- Fixed simultaneous socket error warnings (Reported by psychotic_gal)
- Added -smallpackets startup option to have client send smaller packets of data
 hopefully fixing some user's connectivity issues
- Changed Partyline Tab style
- Fixed adding of specials to field (Reported by can_of_olives)
- Fixed Bot mode moving at start of game when Bot PPM is set to 0
- Fixed Bot mode being disabled when starting server with
 server playing box unchecked and then checked (Reported by Scott)
- Added option to make Fields and Lobby forms have their own entry in the
 taskbar (Suggested by Scott)
- Fixed query.tcl bug when connecting to a server through a URL protocol extension such
 as tnet://, btrix://, tfast://
- Fixed bug with /start in aliases.tcl (Reported by dunno)
- Updated Tcl/Tk engine to 8.4.14
- Made button area on main form scrollable, removed net settings button and
 put both client settings and server settings back in its place (Requested by many)
- Added norwegian language file from psy-fi
- Fixed bug with description of script being displayed when script is deleted
- Added -noregistry startup option to prevent program from modifying registry for the
 url extension protocols

 
Enjoy! And remember you can submit your language files to me for future releases! Thanks!

Thanks for this one!
 
Personally I think the scrolling system of the buttons is still wacky, actually more wacky than the sollution in the alpha release.
 
The "show fields" button is probably obsolete by now, maybe it can be removed?
Maybe the lobby button can be placed elsewhere?
Maybe the server settings could only be available from the lobby?
 
I don't know, but I hope you will be experimenting with alternative sollutions.

If you have the screen real-estate to spare, you can stretch the window until the scroll bars disappear, to make it more accustomed to what you may be used to.

I didn't like the playing fields using one more taskbar =/ The client/servers buttons i really prefer the way it is now =D i used them both a lot
 
EDIT: i'm too lazy to open a new topic so... i can't explain very well but would be cool if in the server and the client, the box where you type the nickname saves what has already been typed... like the google does, you type just the first letter and them it shows all that have been typed there starting with that letter....

You can disable this feature under misc. settings.  Many people however may find it useful for switching between partyline and fields, either by clicking on the taskbar, or by using alt-tab.

Yeah, but the function doesn't work (at least to me)
 
I unchecked the "fields/lobby in taskbar" but it still uses one for blocktrix and another for the playing fields

As it says, you need to restart the blocktrix program.

Even when disabling the taskbar feature I still have both windows in alt+tab which is kinda annoying.
It would be nice if disabling it also removed the partyline window from alt+tab while playing.
