Coming up

KarBOOM 1.1 is coming out soon - it has been delayed a little as I move from one country to another, hence me not putting a deadline on it. But it'll be a free update, and as it currently stands in development, AI has been significantly improved, new skins have been added, and bugs have been fixed.

KarBOOM
3 new skins and much smarter AI, which will be scaled down for more difficulty settings

The current plan is for each of the 3 new skins to be associated with an AI difficulty level. Beat that AI one-on-one to unlock their skin for human use.

KarBOOM
In KarBOOM 1.1, not yet released, bots easily navigate to their target

Follow me @JibbSmart on Twitter for instant updates on KarBOOM. Post here on IndieDB/Desura or message me on Twitter to let me know about bugs that need squishing in future updates.

Finally, play with controllers! I've played KarBOOM with Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii controllers (needed the nunchuck for the Wiimote, though), as well as Logitech and other generic PC gamepads. Give it a go!

And Merry Christmas!

It only needs DirectX 9. Which version is giving you trouble? If you don't mind, could you please try KarBOOM 0.2.4 and tell me if that gives you any trouble? It might help me narrow it down and get rid of the problem.

@CecilFF4fan: End-User Runtimes are what you'd normally want, but I don't think that's the issue -- what brand is your graphics card (nVidia? AMD/ATI? Intel?)?

@HUNTERLOL: Thanks for the info. I'll try to change things for the next version so that it's more like the old version in terms of some rendering techniques.

0.2.4 cannot, but newer versions can (when they work) :) I'm going to try and change some of the behind-the-scenes stuff to be more like 0.2.4 without losing any features from 0.3+.
