Just posting another update informing everyone of the Orion Public Beta 1.0 release event tomorrow!
After a week of Closed Beta testing courtesy of FilePlanet, we have went back to the core and made over 50 changes to the game. This ranges from optimization and increase in framerates for those experience a low performance ( yes! all fixed now! ), as well as fixing all iron sights, adding some new GUI, updated all weapon variables, reduced the overpoweredness of the Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, and Light Machine gun and plenty more!
Not only that, we have added 3 new levels! ( We were hoping to add 5 but two of them ( ctf_myst & ctf_shadow ) need extra time due to some problems last minute. Expect to see these fantastic maps ( being developed by Dimension Studios) in Patch 2.0 expected in the last week of THIS month!
Please make sure to attend our release party tomorrow! We will be having it in two locations. One will be IRC and the other on our SteamGroup Chat. These will be taking place at the same time so just join whichever launch party setup you prefer ( IRC or SteamGroup Chat ). If you are not currently a fan of Orion in SteamGroups, you may become one here:
