GENERAL CHANGES
Added NAT Punchthrough, allowing players to join eachothers games without needing to forward their ports.
Integrated coop into the campaign page, allowing players to complete the campaign as a team.
Added a new option to randomly play music in PvP game modes.
Windowed mode is the new default setting, and will auto maximise when you launch Geneshift.
Renamed the PLAYER menu to UNLOCKS and rearranged it in the menu.
Added a new popup that shows the first time you view the skills menu letting you know how permanent builds work.
Added button noises in the menu.
You can now set a default position for skills, so for example you can set it so Teleportation automatically unlevels into the F1 position.

Players can now jump at full force off vehicles (an extra 1m higher than before).
