Hey all,


I finally got to extending the story (after tons of other updates!) — now you can find out more about what the “Unknown Entity” is & what its plans are. However, there is still much work to do be done here — I do plan on having multiple endings!

I wanted players to enjoy melee weapons (alongside stealth) more, so I added a new flying melee attack ability. To trigger a flying attack, charge up a melee weapon and look at your target from a short distance — when you release, you will fly towards the target and strike. You can perform a flying attack while stealthy, too! This should make it easier to attack flying targets with melee weapons & in general, make them more fun to use.

Consumables have been tweaked a bit. First, I made them more expensive so using recharging stations in buildings would seem more desirable. However, to make up for the increased cost & to give more use to the “Consumables” skill, I made a residual effect that lasts for 20 seconds after using a health or energy item. Depending on how good your “Consumables” skill is, your health or energy will increase for that 20 seconds.

I really like your update system through BMTMicro, but it doesn't seem to want to update. It shows my version as 0.42a and that 0.43a is the latest version. I click "Update via BMT Micro" and it downloads what looks like around 5 MB (or maybe 50 MB? didn't count how many digits). It still shows me on 0.42a and I did the download twice. In game it also shows 0.42a in the bottom right corner.

Maybe it's because I have it installed on my D: drive instead of C: drive?

After it was done downloading, did it start an installer for v0.43a?

I watched it this time. It was 59 MB and then the launcher closes immediately but doesn't run the install. It must be saving it somewhere. I am on Win XP (because my work requires Win XP 32 bit or Vista 32 bit). I installed the game to my D: and Win XP is on C:.

That file size is correct... I wonder why the installer isn't running :( Can you try downloading the installer manually from BMT Micro and running it? Curious if that will work on your machine..

That worked fine. I keep all my old emails so it's not a big deal to update this way.
