________________________

Cube Arena Pre Alpha 2.0 is available for downlad ! This is a big update I've been working on for few months now. I wanted to allow players to create their own games with their own worlds, events, and their own stories. And that is what this update is about.

By using the Cubik story editor, you can create more than just another world for Cube Arena, you can litteraly create your own game, with events, stories, characters, infinite worlds, etc ...

I also added few funny things, like voices, subtitles, and a cinematic mode, so that you can have fun by creating realistic people, and make them talk and interact with the world.

You can use the events to customize your world as you please, and I have tons of ideas to improve the editor : this is still in Pre-Alpha mode ;).

I also created 6 new stories I made myself to show you guys how simple it is to create a new story.

Here are some screenshots about the stories :

For some reason none of the story buttons in the story menu do what they advertise to do:
An Hardcore Quiz loads The Riddle
The Forgelion Hostel loads The Telador's Castle (sometimes The Riddle)
The Impossible Platform - Level 1 loads The Riddle
The Impossible Platform - Level 2 causes the game to crash (ocasionaly loads The Riddle)
The Riddle causes the game to crash (unless loaded by another story)
The Telador's Castle causes the game to crash (unless loaded by The Forgelion Hostel)

I uninstalled the reinstalled the game, made sure my drivers are up to date, and un/reinstalled .NET 4 and XNA 4. (For some reason I can't get the link in the issues page to load relating to compatible graphics cards).

Is there something that I have missed?

Also the game occasionally crashes when I press the take all button when removing items from a chest (other times it will break a block which is what I assume is occurring to the chest when the game crashes).

Is there a better place to post something like this? I couldn't find one and I am sorry if there is.

Hi, first thanks for the feedback, and don't hesitate to ask questions here, I will do my best to answer them.

I just found out the bug, it's caused by the play button. I always double click on the story and it works perfectly, so i didn't saw there was a bug in the play button, sorry about that.

I will fix it for the next version don't worry, in the mean time, just double click on the story you want, and it will work.

And about the chest bug, I have to look at it closely but I would say the game crashes when you destroy the chest with the mouse left clik (so when you left click the take all button too). You can pick items one by one, and close the window with escape key, and it will not bug.

Again it will be fixed in the next update.

Thanks for the feedback, it really helps me a lot!

Thank you, that fixed it for me.
A few more things though:
The launcher can be skipped by running the Cube Arena.exe in the main game folder directly. I don't know if this is a big deal or not yet because there is no multiplayer and that the launcher is required to download the rest of the game.

The game will crash if I make the window too vertically thin (I noticed this one by accident lol)

I request the launcher remember my password or log me in when I start it. This isn't a big deal but would be a nice feature.

Keep up the great work!

Good idea for the password saver, I will add that. Meanwhile, if there are no new updates available, you can just click Login, and play offline, it's way faster!

I will fix the window too thin bug too, I'm just used to go fullscreen (f11) every time to be honest.

Thanks again for the feedback ;)

I forgot to mention something (oops)
I noticed that when I uninstalled cube arena, the uninstaller only uninstalled the launcher, not the game itself.

Whoah, this game looks epic. I seen lots of cubic voxel games, but they all seemed to be just another minecraft clone. But this game...
It's just simply epic, can't really describe it otherwise. So keep it up, you are doing awesome :D
After i read the description i started downloading the current, demo, plus the video made me follow this game. I guess you have another fan Betamorphosis :D
