    Starting planets code made it into server_browser.js but not the html in server_browser.html

    Code:
     <img style="position:absolute;bottom:0;right:0;" src="" data-bind="visible: $data.starting_planet, attr: { src: '/ui/main/game/server_browser/img/icon_planet_start.png' }" width="20" />

    All of the Faster Server Browser optimisations and feed filtering (except 304 not modified) have been implemented:

    Code:
    "gFasterServerBrowser_filtered_total":0,"gFasterServerBrowser_no_TitleData_count":0,"gFasterServerBrowser_no_system_count":0,"gFasterServerBrowser_old_game_count":0
    
    Current feed is < 0.2 Mbit/s :)

    You should e-mail a player when this happens to encourage them to play again.

    Yes! It would be good for Uber but I know that I would actually want a notice like this.

    The depth thing is great. I made a planet that's entirely ocean except for one tiny little island. It's like Waterworld!

    I called it Verne. Because Leagues Under the Sea.

    @jables sometimes seems to forget about that. :)

    Fortunately, there are at least three alternative updaters for Linux that do the same thing as the UberLauncher. By the way, it's possible to add start-up parameters to games in Steam, eh? Or do you mean that the game just doesn't function from inside of Steam when you do that?

    Available Linux patchers:

    Hah, thanks for making me take a second look at the Steam parameters, I had gone the command-line route which didn't remove the bug but using the Steam UI the --software-ui works :)
