New Features and Major Updates

    • Known issues and lacking features:
      • HUD not finished
      • No bind customization

Known Issues

Let us have access to the mouse hud file/folder. So we can create and use our own personal huds. It's a client side thing, so no unfair advantage, and allows the game to be personalized a little.
