NEW LIST SYSTEM
Levels are now read from the server as a cool list which the game keeps for reference for filtering and stuff!

  • Run sets of filtered levels directly from the game (default filter to start w: create date (find most recent levels or older levels) Lots of filters coming up. World mode (custom user filters) are on the board too.
  • Run the list and go directly into the next level without having to exit the game mode. Eternal run mode!

NEW AUDIO
We are giving a sneak peak of the broad audio design we are slowly implementing
New atmospheric menu and editor music to enhance your creative energy!

  • Music artist is incognito until more is revealed and tested!
  • New audio track by B Magic (the composer of the Urban Pirate OST)
  • We are looking at 4 different very exciting artists to sync w during the rest of 2018. More coming soon!
  • The goal is to have an ongoing DASH radio where contemporary artists contribute monthly with fresh tunes and profiles

PLAYER GHOSTS
Challenge yourself when running against your own world record (WR)

  • The player's ghost is saved when he/she beats a WR. This ghost can be displayed in the level if you go to Pause menu and toggle Ghost on
  • I fixed some issues with the way it stored the data + the ghosts would stay between levels so it would look very confusing if you had the ghost toggled on.
  • It also affected the performance. This is fixed and the ghost is now working properly.
  • The player's run is also kept in a file for future replays! More coming soon.

FIXES & IMPLEMENTATIONS

  • Fixed missing buttons on dialogue boxes
  • The compression is still slow but safe. We're working towards a faster solution.
  • Limited the amount of tiles to place to 350 to limit size of compression
  • Now displays 'Saving & Compressing' string and sprite when saving huge levels to help player understand game is ok
  • Description now 33% longer
  • Polished Pause Game UI
  • New main menu design
  • Story tab removed from game
  • Toggle level slots a little slower and more tight
  • Change the Hero you are playing directly from the run menu to be able to do long lists of levels without ever having to exit
  • + lots more which I can't remember or find as a note anywhere
