Patch notes for version 1.0.12
Update branch: Release
Release date: 17 Jan 2017

Badges
  • New command: /set_title_name (also /settitlename) that accepts an internal badge name, such as Anniversary10 or AtlasParkExplorer.

  • Yo dawg, we heard you like badges, so we added badges for your badges so you can earn badges while you're earning badges.
Events
  • Two words: Ski Race
Powers
  • New power: Recall Friend. Somewhat experimental, but seems to be working in limited testing.
System
  • Implement some new powers system features: Teammate target type, power confirmation prompts, and support for secondary targets including range handling.
Zones
  • Resolve issue with zoning in to the revised Pocket D map sometimes taking longer than usual.

  • Added a map marker to the door that leads to the Ski Chalet to make it easier to find for returning players.

  • Increased local chat range in Pocket D by 50%.

LOURVE!  (I dunno if anyone will get that reference.)

Too bad I still can't ski.

Do we still play FPARN here?   8)

So, started the race but the timer never stopped.  Was that expected? No badge I'm guessing?

How long did you give it? The expert (easy) course times out after 2 minutes, the advanced course times out after 3.

D'oh.  I can confirm that the timer is not running out when it's supposed to.  I had both of them going at once for a minute there.  Expert finally stopped somewhere past ten minutes, and Advanced is still ticking away at over nine.  Which is strange because they seemed normal before.  I'm not sure what I did differently that might have affected them.

"Controlled Falling Practice."  Hah!

Bah, the zone script was using a static variable to count ticks so that it didn't check the state too often, but the same function was ticking for both instances (each instance using separate data for each course). Because it checked every N ticks and N was divisible by two, in practice only one of the courses was running the cleanup of old races.

Fixed in bugfix release 1.0.12.2.

    I do have two questions; Is there any plans to allow Warshades to use Shadow Step and whatever their version of Recall Friend is called? How difficult would that be now that Teleport and Recall Friend are both in Paragon Chat?

    FYI: Internal Badge Names for the /set_title_name command is available on the Paragon Wiki under the page Badges known to work in Paragon Chat.  Total credit for the internal badge name contributions goes to Pengy.  Seriously, applause.

    That's all.

    You need to add an obvious download link to ParagonChatBootstrap.exe somewhere, people coming here from Reddit can't figure out how to actually get the program.

    On top of it... and done.

    Point them here, or use chat.cohtitan.com, the forums link will take them to Announcements by default.

    I think I found what they talking about. The wiki page was pointing at an old (since removed) URL for 0.9x. I updated it to point at the bootstrap instead.

    Should probably also put a download link on https://chat.cohtitan.com (where the button on the main cohtitan page takes you). But we really need somebody willing to do some HTML work on that page and flesh it out. Hit up Sekoia if interested, I think the page is using some system to automatically generate stylesheets and such.

    So, what is in 1.0.12.4?  I didn't see any patch notes for it.
