Post news RSS LBKR 4.210 Release

v4.210 of LBKR has been released along with 5.210 for Linux users.

Posted by on

So at last, 4.210 is released! ...actually it was released two days but I haven't had time to post an update here until now, sorry for the delay but better late than never I suppose! :)

The most important new features of 4.210 are the three new mysteries to solve, two new missions to complete and a new boss to fight. Apart from that a whole bunch of bug fixes and glitches has been fixed, artwork improved and smaller extra content added. The player may now choose more freely in the game settings what visual quality and image effects should be enabled.

Since the release a few glitches have been detected but they will be fixed before the weekend, along with a new weapon and projectile type namely, the flamethrower!

As for the next major update (4.22x) I'm going to introduce a new module of the gore-system that I call Gorefrag (... yes, that's probably the most corny name ever but it'll have to do for now) It's not anything sensational really, but it will allow the player to execute enemies in more stylish and/or brutal ways that will also reward the player with greater energy claim per gorefrag-kill (...when corniness became cornier!) I've set up a prototype that I'm working with as we speak, but the module won't be finished or deployed along with the fix that will be released later this week.

The LBKR game clients can be downloaded from my here but will also be available from the "Downloads" page here on LBKR soon! If you have the 4.200 version on your computer, simply remove it and unzip (or install) the 4.210 version. No dataloss will occur since LBKR saves your character profiles in another directory than the game folder.

Full release log can read below along with known issues.
