GS:Rogue Tactics v0.5.0 – FINALLY HERE.. look at that changes list

FINALLY the update is here!  In all honesty, I should probably name this v0.99.0 or something, because I’ve put so much fixes and new stuff in this that it’s silly to see it as a minor update to v0.4.0..

But that’s how I rollllll, so that’s what it is! Doesn’t make the update any less !

This is, most likely, the final update before I do a public-beta! YAY!  I’ve been working extremely hard on all the small details and things and making the game almost release-worthy (without being release-worthy).

So for now, grab the Patreon build if you are a Patron by following this link, or Wishlist the game and come hang out in Discord.gg/Orangepixel to get a chance of playing the public-beta version which will hit sooner than you might think!

  • fixed: coin-blocks are rendered wrong

  • fixed: pressing A during slow-tick should “complete” slowtick, not close dialog
  • fixed: briefcase still in hands after completing mission and redoing the world

  • fixed: changing fullscreen or resolution now more instant and correctly stored
  • fixed: using pause/settings during animation areas messes up the game
  • fixed: improve checks on fences and drop-cranes and the floor underneath

  • fixed: can’t bomb my way in here.. whatsupwiththat!?
  • fixed: show current HP for each character on pause and char-select screens
  • fixed: steam-wheels sometimes placed on top of other stuff
  • fixed: bombs roll out way too long
