BA version 10.12 is out!

We’ve improved the newly created AI: DAI.
Units now continuously aim and wont lag behind, 2018 is here after all!
And more options added to the in-game options window, like resolution, window position, camera smoothing, tree wind, and more.
When tracking a player’s camera… your view/radar will be equal to what that player is seeing.
Our engine replacement trees can now catch fire and propagate it to their neighbors. To bad not much maps use engine trees.
We also bring lots of fixes and feature/code cleanup too.

We removed support for older engines to offer a consistent experience and balance. Unfortunately MacOSX users can’t run these newer engines. At least until SpringRTS Engine version 105 comes out which probably brings support back, but that will take a while.

Thank you for testing!

BA 10.08: Hotfix, 1v1 tournament + more goodies

 

Quick update to BA 10.07

Hello everyone! We are just dropping a quick update to touch the issues which went out of sight during BA 10.07 testing session. As may or may not have noticed in the last couple of days Juggernauts refused to shoot their main canons. What is more, there were few problems with the behavior of the newly implemented cloaking script (needed due to a new way of implementing CLOAK in new maintenance engine). Some units wouldn’t auto-cloak after walking out of the lab, also the automatic hold-fire widget didn’t work as it is supposed to. These two plus some minor different bugs have forced the dev team to release a quick bugfix.

BA 10.05

BA 10.07 is finally here…

How is it going, guys? It’s been a while, huh? After a bit of a delay, we are finally dropping Balanced Annihilation version 10.07. Same as before, the long wait is going to be really well-rewarded. Again, there is a lot to talk about, so I will try to break it down in the most compact way possible for a better understanding of the changes. This update gently touches many different aspects making tiny improvements here and there, but there are some focal points to discuss. BA 10.07 features a tiny boost in Kbots mobility, an in-game voice/notification system, a major improvement in transporters’ behavior and control and new fancy effects. So, without further ado, here are the most important changes coming with BA 10.07.

BA 10.03 is live!

We are only three weeks into playing the new fancy BA and already a third update hits the stage! BA 10.03 brings some minor graphical bugfixes, a new experimental setting and an improvement to the endgame condition script. As a result of the latest discussion on forums, we came to the conclusion, that the prevent_combomb script (a.k.a. 1v1 rule) needs a redesign in order to get more consistent.

BA 10.02: new effects, stumpy nerf and more!

Balanced Annihilation 10.02 is here!

Hi there! 2017 is slowly coming to an end. Meanwhile, after the few first games after the release of BA 10.00 it became obvious that vehicles benefit too much from the lately introduced pathing. Especially stumpy movement made it able to overrun any T1 counterpart in terms of efficiency. The recently released BA 10.02 version has these things sorted out. Stumpy movement was made closer to the one from BA 9.46. It means that there were given more inertia. As a result, they will feel heavier now suffering from slower turns and lower acceleration.
