Starward Rogue Update 1.017: Smart Gun
« on: March 17, 2016, 07:07:18 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.com/starward-rogue-update-1-017-smart-gun/

New one!  This continues the recent trend of refinement-focused releases.  It updates/adds a number of sound effects, it adds several enemy variants, it refines a number of player weapons, and fixes a number of bugs.  It also adds yet more modding xml commands, and a new main-slot weapon: the Smart Gun.

More to come soon!

Nearly a week later I can finally play this new version. Hurray!
One thing though, I was greeted by a strange message in the main menu (see attached screenshot). Should I be worried or is that an harmless thing everyone see in this version?

It should be harmless, although it is a little bit odd.  If you do a verification on your steam files, it might go away.

The files verification redownloaded 3 files, but didn't clear the error. And each time I launch the game, doing another verification always redownload 1 file. It's weird. I also removed my custom mech just in case, verified the files and launched the game, same result.

Otherwise the game seems to run normally, so it's not really a problem.

I found it but I'm going to shoot it to Pepi.  I don't know if it's just a typo or not.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Thanks! This was some code that is unused in the game, but which was referencing something that is only on my local PC. Oops! It's a harmless error, but it is annoying that it made it into the build. Sorry about that. I've fixed it now for the next build.
