Go to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Diabotical\CloudSave you can paste %AppData%\Diabotical\CloudSave in the windows explorer address bar to get there or type /homedir in the console in-game (enabled with the button above tab, to the left of 1) and then close the game, once you are on that folder delete the bindings.txt and settings.txt, start the game again, and if you have Cloud Saves enabled on Epic then choose the option to use your local save instead of the cloud stored save.

you know that you have to set the netcode to clientside, for bots to do any damage right? They are pretty tough, and a later waves will instakill you on touch.

Also, join the survival discord group!

There is info on new maps and stuff.

A new map was released today: https://www.reddit.com/r/Diabotical/comments/ph70tf/diabotical\_survival\_map\_pack\_3/

Enjoy!

You do not have to set the netcode to clientside since the last update.

Survival

  • A Survival version of Strife has been added.
  • Fixed the issues where most bot types would not do damage if server-side netcode was selected.
  • At the start of a match players can now open the buy menu to select a weeball, players will have that weeball for the rest of the match, which will go on cooldown after being used. A maximum of 2 players can select the same type of weeball. The Weeball choices are: Amplifier Weeball - creates an area of effect that amplifies the damage of players within it by 30%. Vulnerability Weeball - creates an area of effect that increased the damage taken by bots within it by 30%. Knockback Weeball - knocks back bots and players. Heal Bomb Weeball - heals players instantly by 50 hp and an additional 50hp over time with ticks of 5hp every 0.5s during the 5 seconds after the heal bomb goes off. Slowfield Weeball - slows down bots and players.
  • The Slowfield Weeball has been removed fro...

We believe the servers are working correctly again now, the update is live.

A framerate issue has been fixed in v0.20.460e if you restart the game to get it

Not sure if it's because of this, but I'm experiencing some significant frame drops (I used to get 230+, now I'm seeing anywhere from 120-180). It fluctuates pretty often too, making it quite the erratic experience.

Also, I believe my HUD's broken on the initial load. I'm seeing two chat boxes and my crosshair changes colors for some reason (I believe it's stuck on the hit color for RL only?). Restarting the game seems to have fixed it, but not the frame drops.

It's possible it might not be the update since I can't AB test it or anything, but I haven't had this problem until today. Let me know if you need more info, thanks.

edit: Worth mentioning that multiple others are reporting this from playing, so likely linked to the update.
