Early Access version 106.2

MAIN CHANGES

:warning: v.106.1 has a problem where your spacecraft will jump to the center of the screen each time you fire (at least when “capture mouse” is on). This has been fixed in v.106.2. Download it from here: ⬇ Download Early Access

The main change in this update is the capability to cycle special weapons during a mission. This feature has been missing from day one, but there were certain implementation details that made it difficult to add. I’ve now bitten the bullet and re-worked the necessary parts, so there you have it. You’ll need to set up two more controls to cycle forwards/backwards through special weapons (due to this, all your Options have been sadly reset in this update). Default settings are < and > keys, or mouse wheel.

There are also improvements to touch screen control, which should be fully functional now. If you have a touch screen, please report your experiences here.

:warning: Accumulator still isn’t balanced against Overdrive, so you’ll be automatically disqualified if you fly any competitive mission.

:warning: BASS version has been updated in v.106, so please report any “looping sounds don’t stop playing” bugs immediately.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. Note that your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).

COMPATIBILITY

You will lose:

  • all game Options (Gameplay/Controls/Graphics/Sound/Network)
  • any mid-mission progress
  • your language selection

The movement of bombers is really messed up, especially the player fires their weapon.
Edit: Upon closer inspection, the movement cap of bombers is removed when the weapons are fired.

2nd Edit: This issue occurs with all speed capped craft in general, not just bombers, and the issue exists only for players without capture mouse.

why do you have to update it?

I’m aware it doesn’t really matter but shouldn’t this be corrected to “Double-tap to activate booster.” or something close to this? Since we have 2 boosters in the game and these vary in things.

It’s in the touchscreen section, btw.

I thought about changing it, but I decided to leave it because it’s more generic. At this stage the player might not even know what boosters are. But you have a point, I’ll think about it some more.

Since it now says ‘‘units of food’’ instead of ‘‘food’’ when I’m about to sell food at a Space Burger, can you do the same for the Grill Hero medals? Something like this: Awarded for selling 10,000 units of food at once.

If the ship jumps to the center when fired, can it be physically killed by the enemy (in a collision)?

IA fixed that bug. Just update the game to 106.2. :slight_smile:

It should. Even instant movement is being calculated correctly.
