Randor the Red
April 20, 2012
As our veteran players know, we are still in Beta which inevitably comes with the ever so popular bugs. Recently players have been seeing some overdue fixes to improve certain items (especially ones that carried over from Alpha). The bridge between artist and coder is not always clear; since Dumoose has been running me through the basics, I am able to be both when is comes to certain items starting with the guns. With this new-found knowledge, I have been tweaking long guns so that they will no longer look like they sticking in the ground and reposition them more correctly while keeping firing animation the same (though some items had to have "extra" animation to make more sense and run more smoothly). With help of our testers like PostMaster we are compiling a list of things to fix over the next few months such as CC (ie. color customization) errors in armors and items. This week there will be no extra release as we have been uber busy (eg. rolled out PvP and BP war begining of week *see last DN Post*) fixing and testing to get a new system of doing the guns which will now go much faster... go team go!
Next week we’ll be releasing some Player Suggestion Items! Polistar has already started on this project, and I myself will be doing some. The plan is to have player suggestions much more often, but our first priority is to clean out the older files and optimize the item system. After we get things organized we can move forward. Cinderella has been helping out with writing (as a testament to her infinite patience with me, she is correcting all my typos now) and with her help, we will be getting the HS storyline back in motion.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Yergen for his mentoring while he uses his amazing skills on AQ3D (Artix.com). While working on AQ3D he still the time to make sure I don’t blow up HS anytime soon (he has dibs on that lol)!
Many players have been asking for a Movie Plex update, Soon as things speed up again, we will do a Summer Blockbuster themed update (I’m sure they not going to run out of those any time soon). To all our players who support HeroSmash we at Artix Entertainment thank you and will continue to provide best fun games possible. Battle On!
