ARGHHHH! The Beginning HELP
Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: DevLog #67 - Wiki, Caves and Weird Trees!

0 comments by Regiden on Jun 12th, 2015

We’re slightly late. Sorry everyone! DevLog. Now. We present the new CrossCode Wiki and a lot of progress, including the new Bergen Trail area with weird trees and caves.

CrossCode Wiki

The new CrossCode Wiki is now available and it’s on Gamepedia!

If you feel like writing some interesting content, useful hints or fun trivia about CrossCode, this is the right place! Big thanks to Curse Gaming for hosting the wiki for us!

Bergen Trail Progress

Remember the basic tileset from Bergen Trail in the last DevLog? Look what we got now:



Bergen Trail now comes with a number of weird looking plants, including the new “Feather Trees”:


That’s at least what people started calling them. We also implement the new jump panels that will help you reach a higher altitude quickly.


Oh… and enemies will be able to use them, too:


Sorry, no easy escape route for you. :D You will not only climb a mountain in Bergen Trail, but also be able to enter and explore caves! We started working on the new tileset:


That’s a lot of map graphics, but it all seems rather lifeless so far, right? That’s because we still need to create the enemies. That’s next on the list. Concepts are already planned out!

Rookie Harbor Progress

We finally got the outside maps of Rookie Harbor finished. It’s quite the place already, with a lot of small yards and back alleys waiting to be explored. Here’s some screenshots:




Next on the list is filling this place with life. That means NPCs. A lot of them. Also: Creating the interior of some of these houses.

Editors and more editors

While creating new content we sometimes also take the time to enhance our editors to create content much quicker. We may have overdone it a bit this time - but surely it will pay off! First of all we created an editor to configure enemies:


Previously we’ve been editing enemy assets with a generic JSON editor. That means setting key/value pairs by hand, remembering the correct labels - which almost never works. Yes, it’s the story of the effect editor all over again. Anyway, the new editor provides the right selection of possible values in most places and makes the configuration of enemy assets so much easier. And we’ll be adding several enemies soon, so we’re glad to have it! Additionally, we extended our map editor to feature the new Entity Brush (we actually started implementing this in one of our dev streams). The brush feature is now complete and allows us to select a list of entities to be randomly spawned per click:


We already know from the Autumn Rise area how much work it is to spawn a large quantity of decorative entities. This tool accelerates this process a lot.


Felix and me started working on the technical details of quests. I went on to program the basic models and editors to author the quests. We also collected a number of nice quest ideas. Not sure how many we’ll be able to implement for the 0.2 milestone - but we’ll try our best. :D Anyway, next on the list is the implementation of all quest related HUDs and Menus. … and that’s all. The new milestone is getting closer. Time to push development~ Until next time! PS: CrossCode is currently on Steam Summer Sale. In case you don’t have Early Access yet. :D

Oh that's not cool :/ Did it happen right at the start in the story mode? Because that's intended. You get the dodge in the next map! :)

Just finished playing around with the indieDB demo, and despite it being an older version I can only expect the newer demo to be better. The movements are fluid and easy to learn. Great visuals too and nifty puzzles. I loved the way you guys dealt with the skill tree too.

All in all, definitely going to track this. Great work guys!

Can anyone help me with this? Since a few updates (sadly I don't know since which one exactly) I have some kind of weird black/white box at the bottom-left of the game which flickers from time to time, but reduces my vision a lot. Anything I can do?
Screenshots: Goo.gl Goo.gl Goo.gl
FYI: I'm using Chrome Beta. I already tried it without any extensions activated. In Firefox it runs well without the weird box but I'd like to play in my main browser instead. :/

Hi! Sadly I can't reproduce the problem on my machine with my regular Chrome or Canary. It might be that this is a bug of Chrome Beta specifically. Since we didn't update the game since last December (the Cross Updates are more like DevLogs... we don't update the game whenever we post them), I think this is most likely a browser issue and thus beyond our control. There is a chance that this issue will resolve itself over time (it might be a bug within Chrome Beta that will be fixed). Let's hope for the best. :O

Please let us know when things get better or worse for you!
