Dwelvers Alpha Demo 0.8g

Trailer video

This patch mainly has the focus on the new creature menu, and the new creature auto equipment feature. Something that has taken a lot of time when developing this patch is the game performance optimization. With the tests I have made the FPS has increased with almost 70%. The perfomance boost is mainly on the CPU, if you have an older graphic-card it is possible that you will not notice the boost that much.

New features in Patch 0.8f - 0.8g

Bugfixes 0.8f - 0.8g

  • Resolution list empty in the launcher - The resolution dropdown list is empty.
  • Cannon Placement and Rotation - When placing a canon, it will not stay oriented the direction you set it for, and can't be rotated.
  • Creature Name is Very Large - Would this may have to do with a character limit on the name bar. This is a pretty long name that is displayed in large print on the screen.
  • Unequip starting orcs, new item available for production! - I'm still not sure if we should either be able to make basic orc equipment straight away from the very beginning or if un-equipping a starting orc's armor/weapon should unlock that item for production ONLY AFTER we construct a blacksmith.
  • Rally doesn't draw all orcs immediatly - Start new game. Unequip starting orcs random weapon/armor. New item available for production!
  • Shovel - This is a small bug and I don't know if it's a real bugg but when you select a tile with your shovel a imp comes to the tile and start swinging a pickaxe.
  • Dwelvers.exe is not closed - Since the last update i have the problem when i quit the game the dwelvers.exe will not closed and the task are inactiv.
  • Exiting Game - I don't really see this as a bug, but I think when you exit the game it should close off the loader and debugger. It also influence Steam.
  • build queue - Imps are gathering wood for all tables, instead of collecting resources for first table, than second and so on.
  • Crash on startup, game won't launch - So, when I try to launch the game through steam, I get an immediate "Dwelvers.exe has stopped working" with no useful information.
  • Crash Loading Textures (Threading Enabled) - Unexpected error on startup. deleted and reinstalled. The first report is before the delete.
  • Prison Skull Wall Tile Float - Was surprised I could build a shackle on the same tile as a prison door because of another issue which has been fixed. The door was not affected, but look what happens to the Skull Wall Torch:
  • Ladders and Torches - This is really kinda nitpicky, but you know me...I was playing around with ladders today, and fortunately they rotate just fine, but it looks really weird when you have a torch sticking through your ladder.
  • Minions ignoring rally flag - After ralling flag some creatures still are training instead of responding to the call.
  • lack of animation (blueprints) - lack of animation (blueprints)
  • Crash when taking control of a possesed Piggeh - I cast possession on a piggeh and it worked fine until I pressed 2 to assume direct control and then the game froze and I had to use the task manager to kill the process, attached is the crash report.
  • Possible bug related to changing game speed - Speed of game affects crafting selection - I observed that as soon as I ramp up the game speed (i went all the way to 9) my farm's production started failing. Grown crops weren't collected and new crops weren't planted either.
  • Splash Screen Crash (Multiple Monitor Triggered) - While I was waiting for the splash screen to load, I clicked over on my secondary monitor to work on another page, and then got Not Responding then crash. I tried to reproduce it, but after 5 times of following the same steps to generate the crash I gave up so I'm not 100% sure what the cause is.
  • ladders - Not being able to place ladder on solid rock, when there's only level of solid rock.
  • Got some problems, had many error box when lauching the game. And no answer after creating a sandbox. - So I was trying to reproduce another bug I reported earlier, but this one seemed different enough to warrant a separate thread.
  • Prison Skull Wall Tile Float - Was surprised I could build a shackle on the same tile as a prison door because of another issue which has been fixed. The door was not affected, but look what happens to the Skull Wall Torch:

I hope you all like this patch, happy playing :)

This really looks great! I used to be a great fan of Dungeon Keeper (the first) and played the two first Settlers games as well.

I will definitely try out the demo one of these days, it looks really awesome!
Keep up the good work!
