b165 - RELEASE CANDIDATE

Post by par » Sun Mar 30, 2014 1:03 pm

IMPORTANT: This is the final build before the release.
In the release the leaves will only be available in the Naked and Autumn seasons.
They are intentionally made visible in all the seasons now.

Please report your observations, we need the feedback.
Unless any major issues found, we will release this build on April 1.

Hi Pasha,

If the leaves in the final version are falling like this version, i hope you make an option to disable leaves, monney bills etc. etc. They still look like there's a storm. And there are to many.
Sorry i can't be more positive. With the town scenery you will get a lot more positive reactions i think :wink:

Hi Pasha,

I tested 'amelie', 'fiesta', and tickling horse and cow.
All of these work as they should.

I looked at Caracas, Venezuela and St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
The LIVE time is still wrong for 1/2 hour Time Zones.

The leaves look a lot better now.
The leaves look really good on Tuesday.

My problem is still with the UFO.
The horse or cow was frozen and the UFO is bouncing up and down.
Never finds the horse or cow.
Flies off of the screen.

If I key "ufo", the animal freezes but I waited about 3 minutes and gave up. No UFO appeared.
I need to key in 'ufo' twice to have it appear.
If I key "invasion", the animal freezes and I have a lot of UFOs bouncing up and down.
They finally fly off of the screen and the frozen animal is still on the screen.

The UFO performed better in b163.

:(

Hi Pavel,

when to show leaves: "autumn" and "naked" are ok, but "naked" should only show leaves if "naked" does not follow "winter" because there won't be leaves after winter...

regarding the appearing of the leaves: i agree with Max - they are looking like there's a storm even with low wind-speed of about 6 km/h and should only from left to right and vice versa but not from the top to the bottom. AT least for me that looks a little bit funny.

Hi Pasha,

For me, with Windows 7 64-bit, in the tray popup window NaN appears instead of the temperature values, wind, pressure and dew point. Does anyone else experience this?

I agree with the others that too many leaves fall down and move when the wind speed is low (1-2 m/s). If it is 6-7 m/s, it really looks like a storm. :)
However, I like the feature, but I am looking forward to the Town landscape too.

Finally, if you have some time, can you add the option between the pressure values (absolute QFE /relative QNH)? Thanks in advance.

Adrian

...i don't see leaves - i only see dollar notes?

If i disable the option 'fun', i still see the money. And yes, it is too much movement in the picture because of the leaves/$-bills.

Thank you so much, friends!

Leaves look much better in the new release - 166, check it out.

Reinhart, in the new 166 the leaves are only visible when the naked season goes after Autumn.
Thank you for raising this, as far as I remember, Marty has reported this as well.

Marty, very special thanks :)
Caracas problem is still to be solved.
I'm back home from Cuba.
Today is my first working day.
I hope to take care about the server location, METAR and season problems this week.
As well as improving Android edition quality.

UFO fixed in 166

Smith88, I hope to investigate the tray problem soon.
It seems that YoWindow handles home location wrong until the main window is closed/opened.

Pressure format switch is on our list.

Town landscape is very hard to make, please bear with us, we keep working on it.
