Re: 3.6.10 multiplayer setup instructions - Games Thrusday 8PM GMT
gmt is gmt , at the moment uk time is gmt+1 British Summer Time or BST , last year im sure we changed to Bst for thre summer but im not sure if that suits every one , for me it is not that important if i play at 21h or 22h Central european time , but maybe there is a preferance for those of you state side ..

so i was just sort of starting the debate a few hours before we play lol

Isn't UK time = GMT?

Only in the winter.

I'll be there at both times, however, I do prefer 20:00 BST.

I probably won't make it. Got a lot of Diaspora related stuff to take care of.

now that started off great. Died during a coop mission, pressed F2 (before I saw any respawn window) changed a key, returned AND no window ever appeared. Couldn't chat, couldn't quit, couldn't warp out.

I've got a strange feeling I've seen that one before. I'll have to see if I can reproduce it.

I think you might even have fixed it in your branch.  If not it's in Mantis.

Nope it's just assigned to you.

Re: 3.6.10 multiplayer setup instructions - Games Thrusday 8PM GMT
Nope, that's a different F2 bug. :rolleyes:

This one is pretty easily explained if it's what I suspect it is. The problem is that when you press F2 the game stops running certain important functions on the client side. When the player comes back out of the Options menu the game still thinks that his ship is blowing up and that it still has to wait for that to occur to display the popupdead menu. Of course the ship has long since blown up and it will be waiting forever as a result.

The ability to go into the Options menu while dead in multiplayer was enabled about 8 months ago. I'm going to turn it back off for the 3-4 seconds while your ship is blowing up and see if that fixes the problem. I may also have to turn off the option once the popup has appeared but that should be the less dangerous of the two by far so I'll leave it working for now.

Changes will be in my branch soon.

No newer Zathras. 

Don't know if I'll make it or not.   Trying to finish breakfast and I have company coming.

totally forgot.

When is 3.6.10 final? Because we intended to make a first real public Zathras then, including validated multiplayer.
