What's New in Version 1.006 See changelog
Bumped version to 1.006.
Patched out GameSpy from dedicated/hosted servers and the server browser.
Fixed a bug in ai path finding causing values to not always be accurate.
Fixed a silent out of range bug that could cause enemies to disappear and travel to a nearby galaxy at FTL speed!
Made the console key rebindable. (It's at the very bottom of the custom controls list.)
Added Big Head Mode! It's currently a little buggy, but humourous. Check the readme on how to enable it.
Included some patched binaries to help improve compatibility.
Added a windowed mode toggle to the display options.
Added anisotropic filtering to advanced performance options.
Fixed shadows disappearing between cutscenes and saved games.
Added a "Blackscreen Fix" work around for Intel HD graphics chips in Display options.
Important Note For Intel HD Graphics Users
Please enable "Intel HD Graphics Fix" in Display options. This fixes the blackscreen while underwater bug. It also switches to an alternate rendering of screen tinting, that should fix missing screen effects.
