Title: Screenshots for Steam
Post by: ptarth on January 22, 2016, 05:06:55 PM
Given the general lack of enthusiasm for the current Steam Screenshots, I thought I'd start adding ones here that might be better. If you have screenshots that you think might be good add them too. Then we can see about getting the Official Steam ones replaced.

I've notified Chris of these so he can have a look.

Is that invader thing already in the game?   I apologize if you submitted it and I didn't check it; the last couple of days have been a tad absurd and it's super hard to keep track of 8 squillion things at once.  Particularly when things then break down at random.  I still have your rooms to deal with and a couple from Cinth as well I think; that'll have to wait until later.  I'm definitely done for the day.

I swear if I have to test the Warden just one more time I'm going to throw the monitor out the window.  But he's freaking DONE now and so is Hard mode.  Ugh.

No worries. I plopped the files up on the Mantis for you, but I think Pepsicolo and Chris got a hold of them first. I haven't cross-referenced if/which things got added to the mainline yet, I'm trying to do a last minute bug check on the latest version. Given the horrible things Chris did to my poor innocent Goombas, he seems amused enough.

Mine are in.  Was one room that had an issue that should be fixed with the next update.  And Invader is in.

Okay, good, that means I dont have to try to remember to do any of it.

I solved your secret room issue on mantis too  :P  (and promptly died a few rooms later).

Secret room issue?

There's been more than a few of those, so I'm not sure just which you mean....

Heck, I only found out today there's more than one TYPE of secret room.  I'd only seen the sacrifice room before.

Actually that save doesnt work for me.  Gives a format error.

Come to think of it, the game's done that a few times today with bug-saves.  Huh.  I should probably mention that to Chris.

Does it work if you try to load it?  It could be because my build is a horrible exploded mess of constantly updated things.

I just loaded it up.  It's fine for .970

Screenshots? Yeah well I'm too tired atm, the Gemini twins were being asses last night hiding a really obvious bug. Can we keep updating screenshots after release, and should we also showcase:
- the 4 7x7 arena fight room
- a puzzle or condemned room
- an explosions shot, if that's possible? Why isn't Michael Bay directing this game?

Cinth - What did you do?

Patch notes say it best.  I found a broken set of interactions.

Quote
Fixed a bad interaction between the flamethrower and the overkiller perk: it would spawn just unholy numbers of shots.

    Further fixed a bad interaction between overkiller and vindictive perks where it would spawn shots off of the scenery, adding to potentially thousands of shots running around like popcorn.
    Thanks to Cinth for reporting this madness

Trying to figure that out led to this though (collateral damage)

Quote
     Fixed an issue with the Banshees being able to fire its reactive shots 5 times a second, which was way too much. Now it's every 1.5 seconds. The alternative melted a few CPUs. ;)
        Thanks to Cinth for reporting.

Hum, have you uploaded some of these to the Steam cloud?

I just did. I don't use Steam to play, so I had to manually adjust things.

I am _finally_ going to update the steam page.  Better... late than never I guess...

I also made this you might want to use. Or to take the idea and make a nice version.

in all seriousness how did you even manage that? did you hack it? did you mod? or did you just irritate it into losing all touch of its reality?.

Hack?  Mod?  Nope.  I feel insulted.  I broke the game. 

In all seriousness, Chris could explain it better than I could (he fixed it) but it was something in the way a few passive abilities interacted.

And glorious.  Nothing like one shooting bosses.

Did you take an opportunity to play the save I posted on it?

I did, yes.  Entertainment ensued.

Awesome.  I had many good laughs and fun runs.  I had to share it, but I also knew it would be short lived.

I don't think that I see any change on the Steam page yet...
