Developer Preview Release Soon
We're about to release an update to the developer preview with the following changes:
- Added an HBond Network Filter. You can now get a score bonus for forming networks of hydrogen bonds.
* Intro levels
- Add/Modified instructions for the intro levels.
- Increased the finishing score on Close the Gap.
A blog post will be posted soon explaining the Hydrogen Bond Network Filter. In the meantime, feel free to try out the new HBond Network Test puzzle in devprev!(Fri, 04/17/2015 - 22:41 | 3 comments)
Upcoming Chat Schedule
In case you were eagerly looking forward to a chat this month, we are pushing that out to next month for a number of reasons (and will also give us more to chat about). We have moved to an odd month schedule also because of this change, and because we want to not have to "skip December" later on this fall. Here is the upcoming schedule for your handy reference.
5/7/15: Developer Chat
7/23/15: Science Chat
9/17/15: Developer Chat
Please note while the themes are generally set to alternate between scientist and developer chats, we always reserve the right to add small updates from either side of our Foldit team as needed during each chat.
We look forward as always to seeing you at our upcoming chats.(Fri, 04/03/2015 - 17:42 | 0 comments)
We've just pushed an update out to the main game that contains the following changes:
- Enabling a filter will now run the filter immediately.
- Updated the wording on the filters credit description.
- The IRC Reconnect button should be more reliable.
- You can now cycle to the previous or next residue information on the TAB menu with LEFT and RIGHT. (Note: currently only works in the Original Interface).
In addition to these changes, we're updating our solution file format to include more useful scientific data. Old clients are incompatible with the new information, so as a result, old clients will be unable to load solutions produced by the new client. Make sure you get the update if you plan on sharing with teammates!
As always, a big thanks to the players in devprev for helping to test this release!(Mon, 03/30/2015 - 18:41 | 3 comments)
