What's new and sneak previews (Downlord's faf client)

1

Hi guys,
I am gonna try write a little about what is new in new client versions. We also have change notes on the client releases but they are often no complete description and hard to read for outsiders. So maybe I'll try to write some text about new interesting changes. When I merge them in the corresponding topic of the upcoming release.

You can try the new features by either installing a Release candidate at the end of the development period or any time with a development set up. Read more here.

Already merged one Pull Request that allows you to manage your active mods in the vault. Both UI and SIM mods.

After saving the selected mods are activated in game. Also the create game dialog uses the same UI so that you can distiguish between UI and SIM mods.

Then the client allows themeing now:

If the theme is copied to the corresponding folder it can be selected in the settings and the UI instantly reloads. You can read more about it here

@Sheikah45 unified the pagination in the vault. Map/Mod and Online Replay Vault all now have the same pagenation and also the same code base making it easier to maintain. Looks like this:

UPDATE: seems this is the case for really old replays only

The last thing I merged today is the new desing which also includes a native windows window which is gonna behave better when resizing and support snapping(move it against the adges of the screen). Best thing would be to just try it yourself. https://github.com/FAForever/downlords-faf-client/releases/tag/v1.2.0-RC2
