# WOA II - Day....who know's now.

960 views

The day's are blurring together....
I have been drowning in AI pathing problems that have crippled the game. Every night I feel like I have them solved and the game appears to work and then all of sudden everything that could go wrong with the pathing is. At the start of day 6, I thought we were going to be okay and get something playable - and then it all broke again.

About 2 hours ago I think we FINALLY (I'm afraid to say it at this point) have it working properly. Since this time I have been slaying a massive amount of simple bugs which is making the whole game feel a lot better. We are still far behind schedule, and full of programmer art but we are actually making progress now.

First playable prototype is attached here, please report any bugs you find.

Some things to note;
-Controls are explained in the tutorial
-Skils are all over the place currently (mix of cool downs, damagae etc), no balancing has been taken
-At the end of the 2nd level, the game will crash as level 3 isn't there.
-The levels are test levels from the prototyping and are not meant to be filled or hard yet.
-The build is a debug build so you may see things that you will not in the end product

** EDIT** Removed the download as it doesn't work if you do not have XNA installed. I will be opting to use a ClickOnce installer for the actual release. Thanks for reporting the issue though

And I jinxed it....

i get the following crash:

That's not good, appears to be hard coded to my path. This is why I use installers, why aren't we allowed to!?

Thanks for the input though, I'll look into it.
