    Hello Commanders,

    We have a new PTE build with some UI changes for modders to test with before we go live.

    This build is expected to break some UI mods.

    Technical Notes

    Reworked start:
    • Responsive layout
    • New background
    • New watermark logo on top right
    • New build version displayed on top right
    • Classic style favourite or random commander
    • Improved events (from community mods)
    • Improved news
    • Improved videos
    • Improved streams
    • Improved mini leaderboard
    • Improved credits
    Reworked settings: (work in progress)
    • Responsive layout
    Reworked Galactic War card layout:
    • Responsive layout for system and inventory tech cards that should display all text clearly
    Reworked live game eco bar: (work in progress)
    • Responsive mirrored layout highlighting the 3 key eco numbers (energy, efficiency, metal)
    Reworked social bar visibility:
    • Assumes always visible with individual scenes like gw play and live game controlling visibility and layout
    • Live game handling via main scene has been disabled
    Reworked main: (113890-pte)
    • New splash handling
    Reworked armoury: (113890-pte)
    • Responsive layout
    • Improved TITANS upgrades
    • Improved handling when steam overlay not available
    Reworked replays browser: (113895-pte)
    • Responsive layout
    • Added winner (from community mods)
    Modding

    Mods may break in the following scenes if they make assumptions about layout:
    • start
    • gw_play
    • live_game_econ
    • settings
    Mods may also break in any scene if they make assumptions about the social bar position.

    There are now two versions of Coherent UI / Chromium which can make UI testing challenging:
    • Coherent UI 2.6.8.x / Chromium 40 on Windows / macOS
    • Coherent UI 2.5.9.4 / Chromium 28 on Linux
    https://caniuse.com/#compare=chrome 28,chrome 40

    Known Issues
    • Wrapping of Galactic War inventory cards with UI scaling above 100%
    • Stretched Kickstarter logo in credits on Linux
    • Legion Expansion start menu theme is currently broken (will be updated soon)
    • Hotbuild2 settings layout broken

    113918-pte for Linux Mesa testing

    Restores Linux CoherentUI to 2.6.8.x / Chromium 40 with:
    • Fixed segfault due to boringssl / openssl conflicts
    • Fixed no alpha transparency with mesa resulting in black screen except for social bar
    You can play against stable servers using --version 113909

    Known Issues / Work in Progress
    • Corrupted panels
    • Black screen
    • UI does not respond to clicks
    Toggle full screen (default keybind alt+enter), resize window or reload UI (default keybind F5) to reset.

    Transparency issues on Nvidia o_O
