Weekly Dev Log for November 12th, 2019

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for November 12th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since November 4th, 2019. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.

Halloween 2019 Events Update - Ending Soon!

The Halloween 2019 Event is running until November 16th (PDT)! It’s your last few days to get those event exclusive items! Remember, a few items will still be available in Celebrations once the event ends. You’ll also be able to spend your Ghoul Coins after the events with Lil’ Pup in the Celebrations.

0.8.4.2 Patch

Over the weekend we released a hot fix with several bug fixes, and a major change to Virus gameplay.

Five. You’ll also be able to toss all five at once, like a spread throw.

Oh YES

MMMmmmmm, this looks familiar I say, but its different, like its the opposite.

Maybe just my imagination.

Just letting you guys know an error with the manifest:

Small Radio is classified as “Plushy”, while Muff Whale Plush isn’t (Just a mix-up between those rows).

(At least I assume that’s an error)

EDIT: Oh, and “Kamikaze Watermelon Plush” isn’t classified as “Plushy” either.

EDIT 2: “Salmon Says Toy” is a “Vehicle” (I really hope this isn’t an error)

Hey, would you be able to add a feature to turn off the flashing lights in the game, I’m an epileptic who really enjoys the game and the arcade is an update I’m really looking forward too. So I would love to be able to enjoy it without the possibility of being hospitalized. Would be very much appreciated.

I hope this means TU is getting Fortnite’s improved dedicated server netcode soon, unless that’s a part of a later version

Looks like a big portion of them came out in 4.19 so it’s looking good on that front!
