Welp, seems like another patch is upon us! I was hoping that v2.7.4 would be the last one before v2.8.0 was finished, but unfortunately, recent circumstances have required me to update the game to v2.7.5.
If you aren't aware of what's been going on lately, there are a few nasty people out there who have been attacking the game through various means. They won't be named here, but we're aware of who they are.
If you were online at some point today, then you may have experienced frequent disconnects from the server. This was due to a DDoS attack, which is the second one we've experienced so far. It's disappointing that some people out there have nothing better to do than to mildly inconvenience an Undertale fan-game and it's players, but hey, that's the state of things I guess.
While we're doing our best to minimize the effect of these attacks, our server host isn't always available to respond immediately, since they're just one person and they've got other things in life to worry about, just like the rest of us. We ask for your patience and understanding as we try to deal with this outside interference.
EDIT: Alas, here's another quick patch!
If you couldn't log in earlier today, it's because I closed off the game while I was working on this patch, as there were more hacking incidents which required me to make another one. You should be able to log in normally now, sorry for the inconvenience!
Here's the changelog for v2.7.5b:
Added a costume for Undyne with their officer outfit from Deltarune Chapter 2.
Added a costume for the Rock which gives them the appearance of Nubert from Deltarune.
Added new local chat icons for Ralsei's butler costume.
Added the ability to select a user from the Undernet feed. You can use the up/down keys on the Undernet homepage to select someone from the activity feed.
You can now only receive bank transfers from players that are on your friends list. (NOTE: If you aren't already friends with someone, you'll need to add each other and then you'll both need to restart the game before you can do bank transfers.)
When you receive a bank transfer, it will now display the user's ID first, and then their name.
Fixed the notice screen in the bank transfer menu still saying 10k is the limit despite 20k being the new limit.
Fixed a visual error in the Waterfall dodging section where the opacity of the waterfall effect wouldn't match the rest of the tiles.
Fixed a visual error where there was weird artifacting on top of the last three pillars in the Last Corridor.
Fixed Rouxls' pirate costume sprites not having their eyepatch.
Here's the changelog for v2.7.5:
Added a costume for Rouxls Kaard with their pirate outfit from Deltarune Chapter 2.
Added a costume for Toriel with her pajama outfit from Deltarune Chapter 2.
Added a new local chat icon for the Annoying Dog so that they can express an angry emotion.
Increased the bank transfer rate from 10k gold at a time to 20k gold at a time.
Made it so the shadow beneath the Virovirokun costume is now transparent.
Fixed an exploit that allowed hackers to abuse the bank transfer system.
Fixed a bug where you couldn't fire in all directions in FFA.
Fixed some incorrect tiles in the Snowdin FFA map.
Fixed a collision issue with an Icecap NPC in Snowdin.
Thanks again for all of your patience, everyone!
On the bright side, these issues won't be affecting the game for too much longer, since when we change over to our new multiplayer system in v2.9.0, you'll be able to play on community-run servers instead of just a single server like we've got right now. That means you should have plenty of servers to choose from! Community-run servers also means that playing with mods will be possible, as well as creating private servers for just you and your friends if you'd prefer. We can't wait to bring this new system out to you guys!
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for reading, and as always, stay determined!
