Vendetta Online 1.8.244

VO 1.8.244 includes:

- Initial mission list updates are much faster now.
- Error message when attempting to create a guild on a Lite Mode account.
- Fixed some UI issues with large fonts.
- Faction logo in station menu is now clickable. The faction's description in the faction standings menu is displayed.
- Fixed Australian Lite Mode purchase price.
- Revamped virtual keyboard. It looks different and should allow for faster typing.
- Increased the polygon count of background planets
- Improved checkbox, radio button, and access key item UI images.
- Planet textures now get unloaded when they're not used to conserve memory unless Cache Resources setting is enabled.
- Added an option (disabled by default) to alert about npcs entering/leaving the station bar.
- New characters are automatically joined to chat channels 11 and 100 and keep their active channel as 1 when they leave the training sector.
- Improved long-press for touch devices to drag-drop addons between your ship ports and inventory in the Ship Configuration menu.
- Moved some Options menu items into an Advanced Options menu for mobile devices.
- Signup button in Advanced Options menu now goes to the account conversion menu if your auto-generated account hasn't been converted yet. This removes some confusion by new players.
- Selecting 'Route' on a non-local mission sets it up to automatically pop up the mission dialog when you dock to that station. If you change your navroute or log off, the info is currently lost. If you dock to a different station and take another mission, the info is lost. If the mission becomes unavailable while you are en-route, when you dock, you will be notified that the mission is not available at that time.
- A username history is now available in the login menu. Select the arrow to the right of the username entry field to see the list and select a previous one. Because this is a new feature, the history will initially be blank. To edit/clear the history, you must edit your config.ini file with a text editor. The history can be used to recover a new auto-generated account before it is converted if an existing account is used to log in.
- Changed the in-station camera views that are seen behind the station menu. The training sector's camera is placed in a better position.
- Changed the message that is displayed when docking with a capship.
- Fixed a bug with Lua/IUP that was causing some invalid IUP handle errors.
- Fixed a rare Android crash on certain devices when attempting to initialize the audio system.

We have more changes in the pipe, we just wanted to get these out there and make sure they're tested. Please post any issues you see on the Bugs forum and we'll look into them right away. While the above list does mention some "planet" related improvements, the really noticeable graphical updates to the planets have NOT yet been released, and will be in an upcoming patch.

For those interested, we may also be offering a beta program for the upcoming iPad version in the near future, so keep an eye out for that (information will be posted when available).
