Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

Vennir: Was your game started from scratch after the latest update, or was it loaded from a saved game?

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

Wow, Vennir, your score must be impressive, and certainly could win you a poster! I hope you took a screenshot? That the BUS didn't show is very odd indeed, that's been working fine. You mean guys just stopped spawning...? If you have a saved game I would recommend letting yourself die by the final ...

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

Yeah, I'm not too surprised that this level is bringing to light some bugs that remained hidden due to the core game not having this much combat. The thing is, we don't want to spend too much time fixing C1 bugs, as we want to focus hard on The Tower! Lots to do...

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

Vennir: Thanks so much for that, it really helped me see the issues. Should be all fixed now - though no guarantees that saved games will work correctly with the update!! -Fixed BUS inventory -Fixed missing end state when killing BUS - (actually the BUS was blinking away, so fixed that) -Fixed BUS n...

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

Ford: awesome report, thank-you!! I will happily take a saved game from BEFORE you killed the BUS, and I'll look into what happened at the end.... Because the contest is on now, I won't be adjusting score stuff at all, but will do when integrating it with the game proper and hooking it up to the ste...

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

The BUS boss will not succumb to incapacitating, you must kill it...and get an extra 1000 points for doing so. So, new version is up: -fixed up game ending for when player or all civies die -fixed player collision issues on grid walls -Added more of a real pause in between waves. Longer pauses for l...

You assume correctly.

Re: Max Character Alignments

We heartily encourage everyone to help with this effort!! :-) What is the highest alignment you have achieved with all of our characters?

Re: Civilian Defense Gauntlet

This has been updated with the major issues wiped out. New spawn point higher up added, spawning frequency changed, starting ammo reduced, new end boss added. Looking to officially announce the existence of this level on Monday... no features added/fixed (this isn't a full scale development venture,...

Re: What game should Greg play?

So, one option: we JUST received our Kickstarter backer edition of the Oculus Rift, and I've been dying to play VR Adr1ft - perhaps I could stream myself doing that?

If you guys were to seriously role-play onboard Hesperus, there is a seriously good chance you may influence the real lore of the game. :-) If you strike magic and have awesome stuff happening, that is.... ;-)

Yep, wait a couple days to get whatever suggestions emerge, then go ahead and make a poll - once the poll is up we'll use our social networks to try and get more folks to vote! :-)
