A cheaper KarBOOM

KarBOOM is more than a year old (four, if you count its various alphas in another engine), which isn't exactly ancient in the Indie scene, but the dust has well and truly settled after its launch in October 2013 and the 12-player update last July.

For those of you who've been interested in KarBOOM, but not enough to spend $10 on a local multiplayer only game, this is what you've been waiting for!

You can also buy KarBOOM straight through KarBOOM's website!

If you're wondering about KarBOOM's future, it's likely a relatively uneventful one. Being employed has kept me busy, and has been hugely rewarding as I grow as a software developer. The little free time I have now for game development is being put into other projects.

Should any of them see the light of day, I'll be sure to put them on IndieDB, which has been amazing for KarBOOM. And as always, Twitter's a good place to find me, and though I don't tweet often, when I do, it's usually about what I'm working on.

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.

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.

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

@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+.
