Hello PlaneShifters, a new release just came out of our forge! The biggest news is the availability of voice chat in experimental mode for now. There are also a lot of new fixes!

This release cannot be updated from previous releases, please download it again from our Download page.
Please note the previous game is still up and running, and it is still the master for all data, accounts included. During this transition period the progress will not be kept in the new game until we will completely migrate from the old game to PSUnreal. If you have an account already for the old game, it will work in the new game with the same password. New accounts need to be created here on our website and will be migrated to the new game regularly, please give it 4-5 hours to be migrated.

Here is the list of changes for 0.7.29:

First version of Position Voice Chat implemented. You can enable/disable it under "Settings". Is a push to talk functionality, will allow you to speak to other players in game. You can choose if you want to only receive audio or also to speak, and you have the possibility to select if you want to audio only from GMs. At the moment is not possible to mute one specific player, but it will be added in the next release.
Allowed gameboards to trigger entrances and exits when used as a puzzle
Implemented first version of music score functionality (not done yet). For now you can select a midi file, but not play it yet.
