Known issues with versions up to 3.0.95

Server - If you are running a server you may have to start it a couple of times for it to start taking connections. I haven't figured out why this is. Sometimes it works on the first pass sometimes I have to restart it. Some type of timing issue maybe.

Connection If you are trying to connect to a server, you will need to disable the default connection which will connect you to server tetraHydro by default. Turn that off in preferences if you want to connect to someone else or you don't want any connection at all

I will need some server connections by users to test and develop a better working multiple connection functionality. At the moment only the default connection is tested. I don't know what happens if you have a server connection to your friend and you try to connect to that instead of the default connection. And showing the correct status of multiple connections hasn't been done so multiple connections will probably fail on some way. Or only one will work at a time.

So if anyone wants to help with this , set up a server connection on your computer and send over the connection string to and I will work on enabling and testing it

Screen Resolution Some Windows 10 users have reported that the screen resolution of the game is off and parts are off the screen. This can occur if the Windows screen zoom is set to something other than 100%. as per this post viewtopic.php?f=29&t=298

After updating from windows 8 to windows 8.1 my screen resolution fell from 1920 x 1080 to 1536 x 864.
All my graphic card drivers are up to date. When I go into screen resolution the screen resolution is set to 1920 x 1080 whereas in reality it is 1536 x 864 as shown by Nvidia Geforce experience.
What should I do?

The simple solution is to go back to the screen resolution display change from right clicking on your desktop and select "Make Text and Other items smaller or larger" and set the scale from 125% to 100% and voila! Your GeForce Experience should now be set to 1080p
