KarBOOM 1.1 is done!

Indie car-combat party game KarBOOM has finally been updated, boasting new improvements as well as a bunch of bug fixes.

At the request of fans, the player limit has been increased from 8 to 12 players, with up to 8 controllers (XBox 360, PS3/4, Wiimote, Logitech, whatever works with the player's OS) plus 4 players on keyboards.

AI has been significantly improved, and new difficulties have been added to ease players into the game, as well as to give more experienced players or teams of players a greater challenge.

3 new skins are available as well, and players can pick the same colour to form teams in Showdown and Klassic modes. With 8 different skins, this means up to 8 players on a single team, though that'd likely make for a one-sided game given the 12-player cap.

What are your system specs? This seems to be happening on older hardware. I'm working on ways to avoid such problems for the next update.

Okay, this is what I expected. It's usually Intel graphics that has the problem, because often their graphics solutions don't do what they're meant to.

Can you update your drivers at the Intel website? I believe the problem is on their end, so they might have a fix. If not, I think I know what's confusing your driver, and I may be able to change it for the next version.

They might be able to support the game if Intel has fixed the problems with their drivers, which would mean you'd need to download and install an update of their drivers.

Maybe newer Intel graphics solutions don't have the issue, though. I've heard good things about them.

This problem is common with Intel graphics, but since they work with older KarBOOM versions I might be able to make a new version that also works by avoiding whatever Intel graphics do wrong.

Thanks for your reply. Looks like I have to update my driver. I don't remember when was the last time I update my computer.

About that it says "msvcr100.dll" and then the game starts with half of the screen cut off(For 0.2.4)

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+.
