Lockdown Protocol is a score-oriented shooter/platformer game with built-in level editor and multiplayer support.

Report RSS Lockdown Protocol update 1.4.3

After two and a half years since the last released version, a new maintenance update is here.

Posted by on

The most important reason for this update was that the Linux version is no longer working out-of-the box in many of the modern distributions due to removal of required old libpng library version. Also, a lot of bug fixes and improvements have been made to my "engine code" over the years while developing Hyper Ultra Astronautics.

I decided to drop the built-in level sharing mechanism, because it was a maintenance nightmare and due to the fact that during last three years it has been used only three times in total.

I will no longer build a 32-bit Linux version, because practically no-one downloads that anymore.

Here's the full list of changes:

  • Dropped Direct3D support (was never used by default anyway).
  • Fixed some compatibility issues on Linux (no more libpng dependency).
  • Added monitor selection in system menu.
  • Added monitor gamma adjustment in system menu.
  • Added V-sync interval setting to system menu.
  • Prevented "Automatic lockdown.." voice announcement from playing in editor preview mode.
  • Rewrote collision sound volume calculation.
  • Fixed random crashes at exit.
  • Added itch.io manifest files and cleaned up remaining references to Desura.
  • Switched to use SDL2 game controller mappings for much better gamepad support.
  • Fixed crash when starting level editor repeatedly.
  • Removed level upload/download support.

There has been a lot of code changes, so I would be surprised if there are no new bugs. If you encounter any problems, please report them and I'll sort them out.
