Previous update Steam branch access

Recommended Posts

Any chance you'll put back access to the old public_previous_version branch from before the Big Merge?  All subsequent versions have been basically un-playable for me, and at this point I suspect that it's not getting fixed.  :(  Nevertheless, my addiction continues.

Sorry to hear you're still experiencing issues. We'd be curious to know if they persist in future releases.

As mentioned above we don't keep old versions permanently available. However, that particular pre Spaced Out! mergedown build is still available on the "public_pre_mergedown" branch on Steam.

You will need to enter the password:

in the Steam betas menu to see that branch as an option.

Out of curiosity - what issues are you observing?

Most of people, who consider mergedown version unplayable, observe dramatic slow down after mergedown update. For me it was from 30 fps to 7.

There's a problem with the gas coloration graphics after that update which makes it very hard to visually differentiate carbon dioxide vs oxygen.  There's a fix for this which puts the graphics back to normal, but if I do this, then the FPS drops.  A lot.

@spiffyzha If you're referring to this OSX graphical bug you submitted, it should be fixed in the upcoming Fast Friends update without using the opengl launch flag, which could cause a slowdown on some computers.

No way!  :D  This is so great.  You've totally made my day here -- I'm so excited to try out all the fancy new features from the last several months.

Yea i am still having serious performance problems on any builds after Merge even the performance updates done in the Public Testing are very slight improvements.

Pre-Merge build still just runs a lot (and i mean A LOT) better for some reason idk if this will ever change but good to know this build is still available without needing to make manual rollbacks.
