    KZTimerGlobal 1.87 Release

    The Global Team is excited to announce the release of the newest version of KZTimerGlobal: 1.87. This release features a widely anticipated change - the removal of the crouch-jump bind during runs. In addition to this major gameplay change, the release contains a number of bug fixes.

    The full patch notes are below:
    • Removed all benefits from getting a crouch and jump in the same tick
    • Added a small delay to team joining (0.75s)
    • Added a small delay to pausing after joining a team (0.1s)
    • Added a small delay to unpausing after pausing (0.4s) to prevent unintentionally unpausing while trying to pause
    • Added an error sound for pausing mid-air & pause delay
    • Colored pause delay & pausing mid-air messages
    • Added a command to check map's difficulty (!tier), Also a help page (!tierhelp). Tier info chat messages are disableable through !kzadmin or cvar kz_tier_messages
    • Prevented a record from being global if the player leaves the server during the run
    • Fixed an exploit using team joining
    • Fixed a bug that caused paused time to be added to final time
    • Fixed a second exploit using team joining
    • Fixed a bug with macrodox that would allow player to reset their stats in a run
    • Fixed an exploit related to map boosters

    Resetting Map Times


    With the removal of the crouch-jump bind, some map times will be reset and wiped. This is because the Global Team determined that players using the bind had a significant advantage over those who did not use it on these maps.

    The times on the following maps will be reset:
    • Kz_gy_agitation
    • Kz_ext_bblocks
    • Kz_beginnerblock_go
    • Kz_exoteric
    • Kz_haki_v2
    • Kzpro_concrete_c02
    • Kz_gfy_limit
    • Kz_natureblock_go
    • Kz_redline
    • Kz_spiritblockv2
    • Kz_tradeblock
    • Kz_bhop_skyworld_go

    Download

    As of this post, only 1.87 servers can submit global times. There will be no grace period for upgrading. Server owners, please remember to remove all times / bots for the maps that have been reset.

    Upgrade from 1.86 to 1.87:

    Full install of 1.87:

    We’re excited to continue to develop and support KZTimer and we look forward to hearing your feedback on the changes in 1.87.

    Thank you,
    The Global Team

    Will we see an option to remove error sounds any time soon? The CP one is already a bit of an ear rape, hope this one isnt as bad :)

    Why does the wipe list seem to completely disregard most death/very hard maps where bind gives some of the biggest advantages?

    I know somebody will mention / complain about times reset.

    The maps chosen were due to bind significantly helping improve times, mostly through means of noduck (56 height) combos. This means more optimised / shorter maps the bind had more impact. We also took a black and white approach which is why we wiped times completely regardless if there was a "non-binder" in the top 20. If the number 1 time wasn't binded it remained untouched. We didn't want any misinterpretations or for another player to be treated unfairly. Yes it absolutely sucks to reset all these maps, but through talks with many people this is what we determined needed a reset for the betterment of CSGO KZ.

    Thanks to everyone involved with forming this list: boutamine, linus, shard, the global team, and the map testing team. (Sorry if I missed someone)

    A couple things,

    https://bitbucket.org/kztimerglobal...ter&fileviewer=file-view-default#misc.sp-4731

    Changing that 1.0 to 0.0 (to allow actual permanent bans instead of only a max of 999999 hours) never made it through as we discussed? :(

    PHP:
    g_hBanDuration CreateConVar("kz_anticheat_ban_duration""72.0""Ban duration in hours"FCVAR_NOTIFYtrue0.0true999999.0);
    Also, any ETA on merging this PR? (what my original post was about): https://bitbucket.org/kztimerglobal...added-command-to-disable-chat-processing/diff

    I'll work on getting my bitbucket setup (usually use github) and send a PR for that and some other stuff if you dont get around to it in the next week or 2, I'm just pretty busy with work and whatnot lately.
