0 comments by DanijelMihokovic on Sep 12th, 2014

Greetings spacefarers!

While the below list might seem small in comparison to our usual changelists, a lot of work has been done since the last update. Most changes unfortunately have no point in being mentioned since they're important for the upcoming campaign mode.

Highlights? Well... how about updated loot drop system, or full controller support, or perhaps the twin suns Castor and Pollux, more music tracks, artefacts, improved streaming... Feel free to take your pick :).

IMPORTANT!
Full controller support. This one is a bit tricky. We've made default profiles for all gamepads and joysticks we could get our hands on, but we need your help once again ladies and gentlemen.All the controllers we tested have different configurations, making our work much harder. Basically this is what I'd like to ask of you:If you try out a gamepad configuration, and you realize the default sucks big-time, let us know please. Moreover, if you're feeling especially generous, please configure your gamepad in the in-game options,and then send oliver@starpointgemini.com both your StarpointGemini2Configuration.cfg and log.txt, located in the game root directory. This will allow us to create a default profile for that specific device.

Also if you encounter some problems using your controller device, let us know. We'll tweak, update and fix 'em all. In general, we're looking forward to feedback regarding controllers :).

We plan to have at least one more update before final launch, but of course if necessary, we'll release quickfixes in the meantime. And it is possible we'll be iterating through smaller, focused updates over the next two weeks.

Premonition Carrier

I played your first game and while it was both frustrating and easy at times, it was still a pretty fun experience. It looks like it's been taken to a whole new level and I can't wait to play it.

Yeah, agreed on that, I guess the first part was awkward to say the least, this on the other hand, makes up for it greatly, suppose they've learned their lesson ;)

I'm currently using the gamepad, it works for flying, though mouse/keyboard seems to be the main controllers. Took a corvette, tweaked my propulsion to get more agility, and it rocks :)

I just love this kind of games... SPG 2 reminds me of freelancer and little bit of sea dogs 1 if anyone remembers that game :) it is really great to have, again, your own ship to plunder, trade and destroy :D and it is good to see that developers have an open ear to community suggestions :) great buy for alpha, hope to see full game soon.

Coming from indie developers, this is really pleasant surprise and has potential to be one of the top space games of the year, if developers keep up with good work and great communication with community.

I've been playing SPG1, and it had its faults, but despite it had its great moments, so far as I can see, SPG2 is greatly improved with full 3d controls, rather polished ofr an Alpha stage, much greater improvement from the developers. It's a great alpha, and with such a communication pipeline the've got, will make a great game, if you like space games, definitely take a look.
