Early Access version 39

MAIN CHANGES

Once more, a lot of small improvements and bug fixes in this update. The most visible change is the addition of Easter Edition content. It’s minimal, only affecting the following:

  • Chick (not chicken!)
  • Crab v1 boss
  • Egg Cannon boss
  • Mother-Hen boss (CI3)
  • Mother-Hen boss (CI4)
  • Twice Infinity boss
  • Iron Chef boss
  • Planetary Egg City boss
  • Bonus Challenge
  • Alien Container

No music or sound effects have been changed. Easter content is temporary and will be reverted in the next update.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day (even after your medal is awarded, you’ll need to re-connect to see it). :warning: 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:

  • any in-mission progress
  • any menu options you have configured

Yes!, i got a bug exterminator medal (but not in the game, that is sad)

Another another sweet update! time to download now.

Whoo!
i just waited for this update!

Amazing update

Who update v39

We all updated to v39. If that’s what you meant.

It says “undoable” but isn’t it the opposite? The actions that can’t be undone would have a confirmation

(P.S. only one medal arrived while I am supposed to get three, and also I think previous update missed one of them)

Correct. I was thinking of un-undoable :joy:

Fixed in v.40
:medal_sports: Bug

Give it some time… giving medals isn’t instant :sweat:

If you’re still missing a medal by tomorrow let me know, because once the next update is out I can’t go back to check.

I will have to not play this game until update it to the new version because I am a Muslim

Unless the update happens after the 22nd, I think it’s worthless to exclude Easter content in the very next version.

I am really curious why when Henley commet comes and spawn the little comets, why when I kill them the points (which are 1 per comet) are count slowly? I’ve never understand that. I am not sure if the Egg Cannon and Henterprise have this too, when they spawning chickens.

Hmm, how about try a 6-big chicken encounter in Virtuoso as a minimum instead of going all the way to Superstar Hero, but make them a bit slower/weaker?

Also, I’ve observed how in SSH, there is no sign of “danger zone” or “safe zone”. Are they removed on purpose on this difficulty or is it a mere bug that has not been noticed before?

They are disabled on skills above veteran.
