Matchmaker 18.104.22.168 contains a much wanted new feature to reload games that have crashed from a save. Save game packages are created starting a few minutes into a game when a player with substantial population drops out or if the game is suddenly closed.
The save game packages can then be found in the matchmakers new "Load Game" panel (only visible to the host when there are saved games available). Games are listed showing the level, date, players, and populations. The host can then launch the game as normal (no other settings needed) with the players from the game and is brought to a limited game setup screen, followed by a brief loading level before the game is right back where it left off.
As an added bonus, games that begin to resync will automatically be reverted to a previous save without any intervention needed.
Just in time for the holidays, the matchmaker is now available on the Google Play Store. The new app created by long time community member Omkar supports chatting and PM. Its a great way to keep in touch with the Populous community during those tedious family dinners or even just extended bathroom experiences.
Sorry, you wont be able to play Populous on your smartphone.
We should be coming out with versions for other platforms including Windows Phone (for the guy that uses it) and iOS as soon as someone finds a mac to build it on.
