Hi friends!

[/font][/color]
[color=rgb(51,51,51)][font=Georgia]


This week I'm pushing a new patch to primarily address one thing: key-bindings are now in the game. In theory, you should have a lot more flexibility when it comes to your input. This includes resetting your keyboard keys to something more comfortable, remapping an XBox Controller, and switching between a keyboard and controller profile. Previously, if a controller was plugged in, you could not use they keyboard whatsoever. That restriction has been lifted.

Candidly, I found the keybinding process to be incredibly difficult. I'm not terribly familiar with the Win32 API, or reading inputs from the keyboard. I'm proud of what was done, but this took longer than I was hoping. I'm crossing my fingers I can make up some time down the road this week.

Speaking of plans for the week, expect yet another patch next week which cleans up some bugs in the Final Confrontation before we all leave for vacation.

Additional bug fixes are also incoming, they're getting pretty nuanced now!

      Dr. Spore

      • Gusztav is no longer so greedy; he'll only take 10 mushrooms if you tell him he can't have more

        Light in the Darkness

        [/font][/color]

          Spirit Walk

          [/font][/color]

          • Completing this quest will now anger Bernadett (doesn't everything?)
          • Piri's dialogue on completion has been updated to make the reward for this quest clearer
            [color=rgb(51,51,51)][font=Georgia]


            The Second Son

            [/font][/color]

            • Fixed a corner case related to the completion cutscene that would appear strange if you left the workshop then immediately went back inside.
              [color=rgb(51,51,51)][font=Georgia]


              Misc

              [/font][/color]

              • Added keybinding configuration. You can reach it from the Options menu
              • Added controller and keyboard profiles; you can switch between using an XBox controller and a standard keyboard in the Options menu. This means you can still use the keyboard even if a controller is plugged in.
              • Added various non-text tutorials
              • Fixed various passage issues in town
              • The Church will not close its doors if you have the Ice Cave Waypoint
              • Cecilia's House will not close if you have the Dark Cave Waypoint

You said that you are "not terribly familiar with the Win32 API". Does that mean that you are not using any interface library such as SFML, GLUT, etc?

Hey Steer! I'm not, I've found that generally speaking most of these libraries assume I have more control over the core game code than I actually do. Since I'm using RPG Maker VX Ace, there is a thin layer of code that I can't access. That often spells disaster for trying to integrate with these things. Have you had any luck in that direction?
