Bug Fixes

  • Fixed hit confirmation sound not playing when hitting 2 targets at once
  • Stopped tank engine sounds playing on the battle screen.
  • Fixed a bug that stopped you pasting friend codes on the social page.
  • Fixed a collider on the tutorial level that let players pop out of level bounds.
  • Tweaks to the battle page to make the tank previews bigger and not cut off at the top.
  • Changed CHANGE to CHECK in region info settings.
  • The group invite popup now requires a response to prevent accidental closure.
  • Made Bubble Gum Grenade collider low poly and slightly larger to catch all tanks; fixed issue where the animation wasn’t playing on intro and outro.
  • On the tank selection screen choosing the same tank no longer spawns that tank again.
  • Fixed a bug where changing tanks on the battle ready-up screen changed your name to the tank’s name.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to equip the same ability in more than one slot.
  • Fixed a bug that occurred on the TANKS page. Selecting a tank with a lower ability slot count would stop you from editing the tank further (crash on iOS).
  • Tutorial: Made train carriages follow path correctly.
  • Fixed bug where friend invites duplicated when logged in and out of online. services.
  • Fixed ordering of elements which made it difficult to click on the settings button. Clicking on your name on the battle page now presents the message “this is you”.
  • Fixed bug which stopped you from being able to change tanks when tanks were identical.
  • Potential fix for a bug that would cause a player’s weapon to disappear during gameplay.
