The updated Flat Universe launcher is now available! This is the first step in the release of a special edition of the game that will facilitate the upcoming WCFU tournament.

- The Launch button activates only when all the patches are fuly installed.
- The news slider updates correctly without caching old rss news.
- FlatUniverse will Launch after the FULG is closed no matter what.
