More Tweaks

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

Some tweaks incoming today, but nothing huge.

  • Increased the Energy yield of a lot of foods and drinks, particularly those found in later areas.
  • In related news, the University bookstore has expanded its repertoire to include overpriced chocolate (to go with the overpriced books) and the pinata has learned a few new tricks.
  • Increased the chain number on Light of the Eye, Rain of Bullets (now called Short Burst), and Precise Shot. This should even things out between melee and ranged a bit more.
  • Decreased the difficulty on Third Eye Thugs substantially. Thanks to Durgen for letting himself get ruthlessly curbstomped in the name of testing.

Also, there are a new pair of Skills in post-quest Southside park if you have the right perspective on things. Like most Skills, there is a choice between the two, depending on how you resolve the situation.


Update Chain

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Corrected a few bugs and added some features today. Nothing mindbending, but if you think of anything that would improve your experience, use the bug report feature to get it up to me.


  • The link to rest from the apartment screen in Southside is now working. Thanks to Durgen for pointing this out.
  • Single Shot now displays properly in Firefox. Thanks again to Durgen on this one.


  • ‘Fight Again’ has been changed to the less confusing ‘Continue On.’ Thanks to Puyo for pointing out that was a little weird.
  • Added links in the messages you get from being out of energy to the info page.
  • The appropriate images now appear when you learn a Technique or Skill. The image and text are both clickable to get a description, as they are with items.
  • Skill images also appear in the character sheet now.
  • The Techniques link in the top pane is now highlighted when you have new Techniques. As a note, this isn’t persistent between sessions.


University Quest In!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

The University quest is now in! Everything seems to be working but, as always, keep your eye out for bugs and use the bug report feature (or ingame mail) to let me know. This is far more complicated code-wise than the Docks or Southside Park quests, so I expect some problems to crop up.

Fair warning: be careful with this quest, because the enemies are playing for keeps. They’re not going to take you out, but others are under no such protection.

There is one notable loose end with the quest. There will be a side quest, probably implemented next, that will allow an alternate way to complete the quest.

And lastly, a few minor fixes:

  • Evasion bonuses now display on items and buffs. They were working before, just not displaying.
  • The bats attack you may have seen from enemies is now working properly.


Southside Park, Before and After

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

You can now see the full results of the quests to clean up Southside Park. The Park itself post-quest has different, more peaceful, set of encounters. Don’t fear if you prefer a bit of the rough and tumble. There are some vicious combats available if you look.

A similar batch of content is planned for the Docks, reflecting the decline of the Fangs’ influence there as well.

Some minor changes:

  • The bug with certain experience gains (particularly Reflexes) not appearing until the next time you gain xp has been resolved.
  • There is now a section on Energy, Hunger, and Body at the info page.


Buff Bug Squashed

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

Corrected a bug that was preventing buffs from applying their effects properly.

Also, there are a few new encounters in Southside park and the crates from the Docks are now usable.
