Brand Test Build 9 Posted!

The new Brand Test Build is posted, including new Brand-related Relic Upgrades, as well some new Brand modifiers. The builds available via the forum post link have been updated: http://forum.ferretdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414

Presuming no major bugs crop up, the next Brand build will at long last be the actual release, containing the last batch of new Brand-related content.

Thank you all again for the testing help, and good luck in the Tower!

Brand Test Build 8 Is Up!

Brand Test Build 8 is up! This one fixes nearly every reported Brand Test Build bug so far, except a couple I had to put in the icebox due to not being able to repro them, or not being a good time investment at the moment.

The usual forum post has the links: http://forum.ferretdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414

Assuming there are no new major issues introduced in this build, I’ll finally be moving on to adding the remaining Brand-related content next for Brand Test Build 9. Cheers, and good luck in the Tower!

Brand Test Build 4 Posted

This one should fix all the funny hang bugs related to getting to 0 or less MaxHP due to Fusion, Soul Armor, or Brand related changes in Vitality/MaxHP, as well as a couple of other bugs.

Note: Forgot to post it in the change log, but in a related matter, leveling up Vitality no longer previews changes to your MaxHP in real time. (I may be able to fix this later, but wasn’t worth delaying critical fixes for. Previewing things is the worst UI. :P )

Third Time’s The Charm, I Hope :P

Found another crasher that needed fixing, this one related to brands with an SP penalty modifier applying that modifier even to things that should never have had SP costs, like basic movement and passing. This eventually caused AIs to be completely unable to do anything, which is a big no-no. :)

Thanks to wizzzargh and SummerSnowman for the help with this one. :)

Brand Test Builds

The 1st Brand Test build is ready to go. :D

I’ve made a forum post explaining the details and containing the link: http://forum.ferretdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414

Everything I needed to say is in there, so go check it out. :) Note: you don’t have to actually be a member of the forum to read the post or download from the link (though you will need to sign up if you want to post in the thread, of course.)

Special thanks to Oneeyedjoe for finding a nasty bug -5 minutes into testing :)

EDIT: Known issue with relic wraiths sometimes causing freezes in Brand Test 1. Fix coming shortly. :) Test builds gonna test build.

11/26: Back In The Saddle

New build released! Links to the right have been updated!

Can’t promise this build is anything too exciting: mostly just bug fixes, largely related to Demon Preservation. :P But, I wanted to get them out of the way before starting on the next, more interesting build. :)

Enjoy, and good luck in the Tower!
