You're probably having similar issues that I have been having with other versions. If I launch the game and then start clicking my mouse I can actually get the screen to pop up. Otherwise it just automatically closes on itself after like 10-15 seconds

Keep in mind people that this update does NOT add Superwarlat which everyone has been talking about. While Superwarlat makes the game's units respond far faster than with the normal Warlat, all this current update does is add Autowarlat, which simply automatically turns on the slow old Warlat we've known for many years now.

It is most likely that iL will include Superwarlat in a future update.

This current update 4.6 might cause lag in some big games, in this case, press F5 and enable High latency while in the game.

@iL You should make the next installer automatically delete Autowarlat if it includes Superwarlat, since it is superseded by Superwarlat which also includes a patch for these same bytes of code but takes a smarter decision on whether to enable it or not.

Oh really? Was sure it was the super warlat...  :'(

Is that super warlat really effective and safe?

No virus?

@Equinox:

It is 100% safe, there are several players already using it and you can check such things at https://www.virustotal.com
Unless someone gives you a virus claiming it's Superwarlat, that's why you should only trust certain players.
However, it is only a testing version yet.
Better version will probably be released in next Combat update soon.
It only works when everyone in the match has it.
Otherwise, it auto-disables itself in order to keep compatibility with no drop.

Yes im really aware of how latency is working lol

is that official by il that we can use it as add on?

Is that possible to add it for the moment in download section of the website untill its release on the official version?

So at least everyone can download it without any probleme and being scare of being hacking.

At the moment with the current development stage the programmers decided to release it only for private testing given to certain players only.
It will be posted in the forum for public testing when it is ready for that stage.
So, it will not be posted publicly yet.
People who have been invited to test it, but are scared of being hacked, should just wait until it's ready.

The main problem is superwarlat is not compatible with war2insight, i think that is a thing that should be fixed before including plugin into combat.
I think it's not the question should be resolved in 1-2 days while releasing combat.
I think we can get some solution in a 2-3 weeks. After that is will be a good time to release new combat including superwarlat.

Much obliged for a new version, here's some issues I've found.

What's not good?

1) Map Editor has stopped working, at all. Even my old one in an old WC2 folder, I haven't touched any tome.1 files or something, this window just popped up.


2) Mini Map in the lobby. It disappears when I type something in the chat, and appears again when I touch the mouse.
Maybe its a plugins problem, not 4.6, but I've never used these plugins before, so I dunno.

3) Also there are some glitches when you making a game in those drop-down list boxes (game type, resources, 4v4, etc...). Like when it was with old DDRAWs.

What's good?

Insight 1.04 with an autorecord script works well.
The latest non-glitch WarVideo also works well.

So I'm staying on 4.6 version, hope I'll fix my map editor somehow.
