    Attention:
    From Update 01.133 on, the game will need Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 to run. All dedicated server admins should update their .NET installations.
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49981

    If you are just a regular player (and not a server admin) you do not need to worry, the steam will update .NET for you.
    Thanks for your understanding!

    quick question: how else could you run the game but through steam? :)

    By using the SteamCMD utility or by using the DedicatedServer.zip file from the tools folder to update your server.

    Did you switch the source code to compile against 4.6.1 or is it just the runtime? This might be interesting for the source code crows and modding if yes.

    We changed the target version. I'm not aware of any code written with newer features yet but some programmers have been itching to start.

    Thank you for the quick reply :) We struggle with that itch, too, at work here :D

    @Malware
    You are the PB expert I know. Does that have direct implications on some things for the PB? Like null propagation being possible or such?

    I must admit to being uncertain about this one; but I'm fairly confident that the CodeDom compiler won't magically support C#6 just like that. But... don't quote me on that ;)

    It does, however, open certain... possibilities. Possibilities that I've been speaking of before. About replacing the entire compiling system with a Roslyn powered one, stop messing with IL, just alter source code - and thus everything C# will just... work.

    I will see what happens when the patch is out then. From what I read it should support it, but we will see ;)

    I was having trouble with the "for each" statement earlier in the week while it was running fine on others' machines. Which was very odd. Perhaps some new code snuck by last week?

    This is one of the well known issues of the current ingame compiler.

    Please ditch .Net and C# and go with a decent platform like JMokeyEngine or libGDX that uses Java.

    If they don't want it to happen, they can turn off all the forum features that make these old threads pop up everywhere as if they were new threads. And I'm certainly not going to gloss through dates to suit your special tick.

    Good friend, I was merely jesting around and there is no reason to become hostile, let alone insulting. But while we're at this, I might as well give you a pro tip: the dates are right below every single post, on the left-hand side - happy to help, sir!

    Do not presume to know my intentions; that, I am hostile, or insulting, merely because I will not abide by your irrational compulsions, and skewed sense of intellectual gap. If whomever administers this forum wants to prevent this from happening, then there are more practical solutions than to assume users will read every detail provided with each and every post. This is not up for debate.

    I am just implying that your tone was hostile - and a wee bit insulting - because, you know, stuff like saying people have ticks or irrational compulsions or have a skewed sense of intellectual gap. I would never presume to know your intentions, friend! Of course I would hope that they are positive, constructive intentions - as it would be most welcome on any given social medium.

    It's fine to necro a thread, IF the post that necros it adds to the discussion/content of the thread. It is, however, not fine to necro a thread with a useless spammy image post/meme.

    Now you know.

    And yes, what a mistake the administrators of this forum have made, assuming that people who have registered and posted on a text based message board are capable of a basic level of reading comprehension. I mean how dare we!

    Perhaps I am not the only one lacking in the basic reading comprehension department.

    You're not an authority on the forums, it's not up to you to decide what is up for debate and what isn't. If you'd like to keep with your superior smug attitude, I can arrange a little holiday for you from the forums if you like. Your choice.
