CortUI 1.76

Posted by Cort, Mar 17 2009, 01:53 PM in CortUI

I'm announcing with pleasure that the maintenance/bugfix release CortUI 1.76 is ready -- three days before the scheduled release date.

The biggest change was probably that the installer has been heavily refactored and deployment simplified. That should make future releases easier indirectly. Additionally, problems with the cloak status indicator on the map and with lessHUD and ParciHUD have been fixed.

The full list of tickets gone into this release:

  • #1: Create a CortUI Trac
  • #2: Cloak status indicator does not appear on the in-flight map
  • #4: Vertical 'pillars' appearing out of the stat bars of ParciHUD
  • #5: Create separate speed and signature indicators for ParciHUD
  • #6: Hull and shield gauges of lessHUD stay black
  • #10: Add logo and favicon to the installer
  • #11: Build installer with the latest NSIS and update uninstallation files
  • #12: Investigate disappearance of the mission briefing modification
Or go directly to the milestone 1.76.

#7: 'Assumed incompatibility between CortUI and the R4 DX9 client' has been postponed as there has been no considerable interest and the problems could not be reproduced in a way that could have led to a fix. See the ticket for more details.

Special thanks of this release go to Myotis for the first patch submission not coming from a HUD developer (he fixed #6). wub.gif I'm sorry that it took so long until your fix was released. Will be faster next time, promised!

Download and more information at as before.

PS: Note that the hangar screen modification is no longer selected by default -- although still recommended when playing on 800x600!

What sidebar? Oh, you mean the black-on-very-dark-blue text... smile.gif

Thanks, fixed.

If we are having no issues with our current install, should we update?

I don't see why you wouldn't want to. smile.gif But no, if you don't need to see the cloak status on the map and don't use lessHUD or ParciHUD, then there's no technical reason why you have to update.

Awesome Cort!

Congrats on your early release! You're organisation skills and professionalism are an inspiration to me wub.gif
The CortUI site and bug tracking is very impressive!

I wasn't able to pin down what was causing the crashes in the dx9 client, although I have experienced them also in the current version of R5...
It seemed to happen mostly in the f3 view, lasting about 5-20 mins.
I didn't notice any repeat action,command or hud status as the culprit

I'm suffering without CortUI atm :_(
