Next objective

This next (short) sprint we will mostly be looking at updating Deadlock to Unity 3.5, cleanup the project, update our deployment pipeline, and hopefully add a few new cool things in-between.

Known Issues

  • Once in a while a marine will spawn without a weapon in hand and other clients won’t see his movements. The only fix to this is to reconnect to the server.
  • If chat can’t be toggled with ‘T’ it can be due to using the development version of the Unity webplayer. Install the latest official webplayer.
