Server and Client
Server Compatible with older client versions: No
Client compatible with previous Profiles: Yes
Client compatible with previous Server Versions: No
vJoy Re-calibration required: No
1. vJoy Re-calibration should only be required if you change devices using the new defaults.
2. Previous underlay/Overlay packages will need updating to include the common files to Apply common imagery instead of the bespoke files being identical for each panel.
Added GTc Service Beacons
This section allows you to create custom service beacons visible to anyone using GTc, it also allows you to accept service beacons and leave reviews for those providing services
Beacon types include Delivery, Crew, Refueling, Maintenance, Transport, Medical, Combat Escorts and Other/Custom.
When beacons are set to tracked, you will get a notification appear on any screen if they are changed and by whom (accepted, cancelled, enroute etc)
*typical process loop Player A Creates a becaon,
Player B registers as an online provider and checks for Available Beacons.
Player B accepts Player A's Beacon and sends a friend request to player A (either from inside same server or from main menu)
Player A accepts friend request Player B joins Player A's server (join friend) and changes statues to "Enroute"
Player B delivers the services and updates the Beacon to Deleivered
Player A sends Player B the funds.
Player A updates the Beacon to Complete and leaves a comment / review/5
**I am unsure how well this database function will scale as I am new to this type of thing, please report if you have any issues.
Added a Turret Blade Client function:
This allows you to pass 2 joystick commands from one PC to another running the GTc Server The effect is essentially to press your trigger on your main joystick and it will fire a vJoy button on the remote server. Effectively allowing you to use an ALT account in a turret and fire both your pilot and turret weapons with a single joystick button.
*Requires Manual conneciton settings entered on the main PC (the one your joystick is physically connected to) GTc Server Panel 2
**requires a second SC account and server running on another PC with vJoy Installed.
***I will be adding an option in the future for mouse/kb users to send mouse buttons 1/2 to the turret client also (this should be a server hotfix in the next couple weeks)
Added an option to hear most button sounds through the server, a checkbox to mute this is on the server main panel
This can sometimes feel to sound delayed because the sound fires with the command which is on button release, not button press.
The Client side sounds are fired on button press locally on the client.
When loading a new version for the first time, your previous 'default' profile will be saved as 'default_old' and the new standard profile will be loaded.
This will hopefully alleviate alot of issues for people using the standard profile if they have not updated in a while.
Authentication of windows clients will now last 1 week.
Changed how overlays are created
There is now an Overlay_Common.png and Underlay_Common.png checked in the underlay/overlay packages you create- This will be applied to all screens that you haven't given a specific image.
The new Service Beacon panels have had underlay/overlay file checks added also. The specific files required for Overlays/Underlays can be found on the GTc website in the manual, or in the downloads for the templates.
The flight 2 panel ship icon is now part of the default overlay package, you can create a custom overlay for to replace this ship icon now, without having to try cover over the old icon.
Made the android clients force Fullscreen (should fix some people have a taskbar on android).
Changed the Auto-Ping button to do a single ping if the duration slider is set to 0 Seconds instead of do nothing. This also freed up the previous default Ping buttons
changed the default PING button on mining and salvage screens to Radar Tag "p"
changed cycle friendly targets on flight panel to port locking toggle
changed clear target on the flight panel to to cycle friendly
added request rescue to FPS Panel
added cycle gadgets to FPS Panel
added toggle Helmet to FPS Panel * default unbound in star citizen (recommend H)
Changed the vjoy installation to automatically set to device 4 with 128 buttons
When changing vjoy device on the server, there is now a set vjoy device button which will also run a command to remove the current vjoy and add a new one with 128 buttons.
Fixed a crash when trying to get files from the server which has none
Fixed the Underlay/Overlay for the Flight 2 Panel not working
Blank Buttons will no longer try and send an empty command to the server.
The Radar will only attempt to turn off when transitioning from a screen, if the radar is on.
The slider on the salvaging panel should now correctly default to 0% on start
Improved the ability for the server to handle multiple commands overlaps, this means you should also be able to use the device while transferring files.
*you still cannot queue multiple file transfer types.
Fixed the saving cam presets from inadvertanetly running the command twice, this could cause it to sometimes resave after you had already changes the camera back.
