Catalina Update

I’ve added the following, in a Readme file, to the 3/2/2020 Mac version zip. Note that there is no new build content in that zip, just the new text file which I’m also posting here, so no reason to download it if you already have it, you can just read it here:

The Catalina version of Mac OS sometimes requires a little extra work on the part of users to get Demon running properly.

I’ve included the steps required here, and I apologize for the trouble. I am researching a method to remove the necessity of this annoyance from your plate, but up to this point I haven’t had any luck yet.

Should the steps included here NOT work for you, please contact me via the Bug Reports section of the forum at http://forum.ferretdev.org/ and I will be happy to assist you to the best of my ability.

Cheers, and good luck in the Tower!

When trying to run Demon on OS Catalina, a dialogue window containing the text “The application “Demon” can’t be opened.” appears.

To fix this, perform the following steps.

1. Right-click Demon and select “Show Package Contents” from the pop-up menu.

2. Navigate to Contents->MacOS

3. You will see two files in Contents/MacOS: Demon and Demon.dat.

4. From the Applications folder, open Terminal.

5. Type the following in Terminal (excluding quotes, including the trailing space), but do not hit Enter yet: “chmod +x ”

6. Drag the Contents/MacOS/Demon file into the Terminal window, then Drop it to the right of the line you typed in Step 6.

7. Click on the Terminal window and hit Enter.

8. Navigate back out of Demon’s Package Contents. Demon should now run normally when you double click it.

If there are any errors in these steps, or if they do not fix the issue for you, please let me know on the forums at http://forum.ferretdev.org/ Thanks!

Hey folks :D

With Nioh 2 coming out this week, and Persona 5 Royal coming out a couple of weeks later, we’ve hit a situation where two fairly meaty games I’ve been looking forward to for awhile are coming out in close proximity.

Knowing myself as I do, I will be pretty distracted for awhile, so I figure I should just own it and acknowledge I’ll be taking a break from Demon development for a month or so, with the exception of continuing to monitor the forums and Discord for any bugs or issues that pop up.

Speaking of which, there is a known issue with Demon and the Catalina version of Mac OS. I’m currently researching this; I have a temporary workaround, but it is on the user end, rather than my end, which is not what I would prefer. I will put out an updated 3/2/2020 Mac build soon with the same build the current zip file has, but also including instructions on the workaround, while I continue to try and find a way around it on my end so people don’t have to worry about it anymore.

Cheers, and good luck on the new Tower floors!

3/1: To New Heights

The 3/1 build has been released; the links to the right have been updated accordingly. :)

The Tower now spans 26 Floors, with over a dozen new demons and over 40 new abilities to discover. Some of the demons, and many of the abilities, may appear well before you reach the new floors.

This build also includes some UI updates centered around handling of rejected Brands when exploring, as well other small improvements and bug fixes.

Good luck in the Tower… and beware of Thrones!

Still On Target

We’re still on target for a March 1st release for the new build. :)

In addition to implementing encounters for the new dungeon floors, I’ve also been going back to older Sanctums and slipping in some of the new demons as rare encounters. :) You can run into Thrones and Nuckelavees long before reaching their homes at the Tower’s top. :D

Besides testing and bug-fixing, the other thing left to do is review older demons to see if any of the new abilities would make sense for them. I don’t expect many changes of this type this time around, but there will probably be some. :)

The next post should be the release post for the 3/1 build. :D Thank you for your patience, the wait’s almost over!

Release Date Target: 3/1

Hey folks. :) Quick update to let you know the Tower 24-26 build will be released on March 1st. I apologize for the mild delay here near the end, but the wait is almost over. :D

Ability Preview: Icons

I finished the ability icons earlier this week, and have become implementing the new abilities. :D I’m about 50% done with the implementation, and when I’m done with that I’ll begin posting some detailed previews of selected demons. :)

But in the meantime, here’s the ability icons to take a sneak peek at. :D
