Thanks to Devo for this feature!

Ability to Disable DM popups
A new option has been added to the CnCNet menu. Enabling this option will prevent DM messages from appearing in the client, you will still hear the sound notification if your sounds are enabled.

Thanks again to Devo for this feature!

Game List Filters

At the top of the game list are two new buttons to sort and filter the displayed games.
Thanks to Devo for this feature!


Custom map download filenames will have the map name

Filenames of custom maps downloaded from the client will be prepended with the map name. This will help navigating downloaded maps much easier.

If online player still able to use the same color as AI it needs to be fixed too (it wasn't like that in previous versions).

Some maps have >100 characters long name. I hope it is shortened when added to the standard MD5.map format.

Since this update just 30 minutes ago, I can no longer play LAN games. It comes up with an error saying something about different game install versions, yet both game maps came from the exact same computer. We get the same message no matter who hosts the game.

"The game host has sent an invalid game options message. This usually means the game host has a different version than you."

That doesn't make any sense. We are both updated to 8.4, maps are all identical, even down to date and time of creation and modify (changed directories).
