On the bottom far left there are two numbers showing how many
kills you have made and the number of kills of the match leader.
Sometimes, that second number does not update, even between
games. If I press the Tab key, however, the number updates
instantly.

    The bug happens whenever the top player is the person playing. In other
    words, the two numbers on the lower left are the same; i.e.: 4 4
    Looks like when the client knows it is the top player it won't update the
    top kill anymore (or the server won't update the top kill of the client who
    has the top score.... don't really know.)
    Anyways, perhaps this observation will help fix the bug faster.

    Thanks for the report!
    If you are still monitoring this, could you tell us what version
    you were using? So far, we have been unable to repeat your
    observation.

    version 0.2.7.0 OSX.
    I see that bug all the time when I play. For instance, if I happen to be the
    one with the top kill in a match but other people scores are close, I'll have
    to press tab fairly often to see if another player got a higher score than me.

    Ok, we now have a possibility to track this (as I could not
    reproduce it no matter how I tried). Debug recordings. For
    now, you have to start armagetron form the console for it and
    give it the command line arguments "--record kills.rec". The
    launcher for OSX that is supposed to help you is not yet ready
    for use.

    Can someone make a recording of this bug happening?

    Hey Z-man, while the bug is still with 0.2.7.0 I could not recreate it with
    0.2.7.1. I haven't played 0.2.7.1 a lot but enough to have seen it appear but
    I haven't.
    I just downloaded 0.2.8_beta1 and will play a bit with it just in case it
    reappears.
    Cheers,

    Thanks for the info; I'll close the bug for now. I think you'll
    have the authority to reopen it should it not be fixed after all. If
    not, attaching a comment will send me a mail and get my
    attention.
