    Doubt it since the only way to counter a weapon is to enable shield.
    It doesn't matter If computer say "Warning rockets" or "Warning quake" or gun or plasma, you just enable shield and if you wait too long to hear the message you gonna get hit anyway.

    On a sidenote, previously I asked what kind of filter you enabled because it was screwing skins, for example places where texture was cut and then merged on a mesh would have white lines and everything would look very blurry at an angle anyway.
    Not sure whether you changed something but after the last patch problem disappeared and everything look nice and clean.
    I think some texture filter is still enabled but it doesn't produce heavy artefacts as before which is nice.

    Cant wait for next patch, good work on the game, it actually feels and plays like a real Wipeout.

    Not really. With nimble enough craft (G-Tek/Tenrai), you could try to avoid Rockets, Plasma or Cannon by strafing. And fast enough craft (Nexus?) could try to outpace Missile or maybe Tremor with Afterburner. That is, if you have enough time to react. That is why I opted for simple weapon names callouts as a warning system, ala W2097 - you do not have time for anything else if you want to evade anything.

    Plus, a warning for mines. And of course...
    "Just when should I activate my Shield?"
    "Energy Drain, huh? Time for a Deflector!"

    And then there's the factor of people coming from Other WipEout games; Wip3out and 2048 are the only games in the series (to the best of my knowledge) that warn you about which weapon you just picked up, rather than which weapons are being used against you... and games like 2097 and WipEout Pure/Pulse/HD are the ones that brought the most players to the series... and as such, most people playing BallisticNG are probably more familiar with the proper warning system. (It is worth noting though, that while Wip3out had a generic "Warning!", 2048 didn't have a warning system period)

    0.6 has a weapon warning built into the HUD. Whenever you're warned of a weapon you'll see the icon of the weapon at the top of the screen next to your current pickup icon. You're wanred of weapons a bit earlier too so you get a bit more time to react to anything that's coming your way.

    I rarely notice things on the HUD, though, since my eyes are usually drawn to what's in front of my ship. An option to enable a Weapon-Call audio warning would still be a nice thing to put in.

    Yes, I've done it - do not work. Bug maybe ?
    Second thing - i want to completely disable those computer announcements, like there will be in-game switch to turn it of.

    Hi guys, wanted to give you first impressions on V 0.6.1.

    First thing first, I love new wall grinds, finally those collisions been improved to the point they dont cause you to flip your ship upon touching the wall and generally become much more manageable.
    Love new menus and as for now I havent had a CTD when browsing trough ships which happened previously with poly/texture heavy ships.
    New filtering made textures look nice and smooth and whole game look smoother as a result.
    Remade courses are looking and feel good, love those rain effects, while I wouldn't mind modern graphics, I think you really succeeded in making game look like a HD wip3out.
    Many people trying to imitate the look fall into trap of making everything look either too sterile or cant handle repeating tiles, you really did it well

    Few small issues I encountered which are.
    Racing against other ships still have those weird fps dips while ships are tightly packed, once they spread on the track the game becomes bit more smooth, in general 7 AI brings fps down.
    Controls screen have "Quit" and "Save" button aligning with some of the controls so when you press "Quit" you edit "look back" button, if you dont have this problem it might be an issue of 4:3 screen format.

    There are few more points I want to make but I'd like to play more before raising them.
    In general I like what you did with that patch, cheers.

    So I have few words to say too.
    First of all my "problem" with custom sounds gone since version 0.6 - i dunno if it is about version or i should reinstall game, but now computer voices are silent. Don't get me wrong, they are good, I just needed them to shut just for tests

    Second thing - less pleasant. Current 0.6 version is unplayable because of many framedrops. Game can "freeze" for 100-200ms in random moments. Previous build was much better...
    You've broke something xD

    Are those "freezes" appear only when you playing against AI?
    For me previous version had many such freezes small and large, current have much less freezes when playing against AI but once in a while I still crash in the wall just because the game froze for a moment.
    I tried to see whether it caused by AI picking/using/getting hit by weapon or something else but cant pinpoint it yet but, for me current version is still smoother.

    This seems to be a consistent phenomenon. There was a major optimization change in between v0.6.1 and v0.6.2, and yert still, on the newest version I also experience this sudden small freezes, even in one-on-one races (there are now such, starting with KolaKorp grid). I thought it was because of my olde computer, but seeing your posts, it seems not to be the cause.
