Build 26 is out!

News 13 comments

Yup, a fresh build is out, immediately available here, or on the HIB download page for you dear Humble Bundle customers! Mostly fixes and tweaks in this one, but there’s some new fun content too!

  • Fixed broken custom pie menu options; now they work as advertised
  • Fixed over-drawing of glow effect on selection cursor and aiming reticules. No more fat glows
  • Fixed duplicate team objective cursors added each frame in activities.
  • Fixed additional (I think all!) mouse control conflicts with other control schemes.
  • Fixed resolution setting issue. The game will now try to use whatever res is set in settings.ini, no matter how high or silly it is. The in-game options menu will still automatically set to 2x fullscreen scaling on high resolutions though. This is a compromise between what will suit first time players, and the power users who want inappropriately high resolutions.
  • Gave the Coalition Gatling Drone some more Coalitionish sprites – Lizard
  • Added Thumper Grenade Launcher; tweaked Nailgun, Railgun, Scouting Rifle, Annihilator, and a lot of other stuff –CaveCricket48
  • Improved Lua AI sentry behavior. Improved aiming at very short distances – Abdul
  • The Dummy Rocklet now respond to delivery/stay/return orders properly – Abdul
  • Made grappling gun more mouse-friendly – CaveCricket48
  • The Lua AI was modified to make it easier to add custom behaviors. Humans try to fly to their targets after losing both their legs. Added a Lua AI for the Gatling Turret – Abdul
  • Updated enemy drops in activity scripts, fixed a bug on the Annihiliator – CaveCricket48
  • AI now fires the Annihiliator with longer-charged shots. – Abdul
  • Heavy Sniper rounds no longer bounceCaveCricket48
  • Balancing of Blast Runner and Gatling Drone and Turrets – TheLastBanana

I do like the genre you vapid ****, stop ******** your pants whenever someone criticises your game you ********. But it shouldn't matter whether someone likes a genre or not to review. (it wasn't a review anyway, it was a 2 sentence comment you pestiferous piece of ****) It isn't my fault the developers haven't spent half a goddamn hour playing their own game to see that the controls are so clunky only a goddamn fanboy (like you. pathetic may I add) could enjoy

the game's finished already and can be purchased, though in any case, 'beta' does not qualify as being immune to any criticism.

Are you actually saying we're not allowed to comment on any WIP projects?

no. im saying that the game is nowhere near finished, and threfore, should not be thrown away so easily.

It's nowhere near finished? Not from the looks of it. I like the game and all but I have to agree with PoisonedV, the controls can be a bit clunky and you are a bit of a fan boy. Mind you, I do like this game, though it's not perfect.

Still if that is so, then we have the right to voice our opinions. I am sorry about that, but you're in the wrong to shun him for voicing his opinion. I mean after all, this community is bent on feedback and publicity of development.

It needs a mouse cursor ingame though, and have the keyboad+mouse controls to see a colored mouse cursor (if playing multiplayer, then maybe it can work differently.
