Thorrnet Publishing

Thorr.net

I am super excited to announce that Griefhelm's publishing
is going to be handled by the great people at Thorrnet!
They have shown true passion for the game and share the same vision
which can only make this collaboration great!


UI Overhaul

The Main Menu was the most barebones part of the game's "visual" experience and it had to be improved, so I focused on redesigning all of the game's UI. Here are the results:


New Menu - Indie DB


Online Multiplayer

Griefhelm now features Online Multiplayer! It features mixed local and online players, bots, and all gamemodes! A dueling game with split-second reactions makes online play quite a challenge to achieve so that things feel both responsive and fair. I have spent countless days trying to make a system to compensate for Lag, and while I'm sure it will need further tweaking and improvement, I am super happy with how it's working!

That's all for this DevLog, 'Till next time,

While far from actual HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts), I put a lot of focus on making fights look as realistic as possible. Find out how!

Hello Mr. @johnnylonack. I got a doubt that the discord invitation has been expired. Can you please explain it or it is just my mistake. Thanks in advance.

Np, btw, I said it looks awesome because I can't actually play it. Will you be able to make an installer version of the application of the game? Because the rar installer isn't working for me, I can't play the game with the rar thing for some weird reason.

Oh really? The game doesnt require installation... You just click on the sidescroller.exe and it should work

I have no idea where that's at. Are you able to make an installer for the game? Cause I can't play this unless you make an installer for the game. I have windows 10, and I'm trying to download it with Microsoft Edge, every time I try to download this with that, it takes it to Internet Explorer and it never works after that. Is there something you can do about this?

so you've tried going in WindowsNoEditor->SideScroller.exe and it didn't work? Or are you having issues with the download?

Nm, I'll see if I can download this another time then.

Instructions.
The file is a .rar which needs to be extracted. Once extracted, you will find a folder called WindowsNoEditor and within that, you'll find SideScroller.exe.

I don't know where that's at that's the issue I'm having. Will you be able to demonstrate to me where that's at?
