2017.11.23 - Dwelvers Journal - Dwelvers bug testing version 0.11.5 is now released


Hi all Smile

Dwelvers 0.11.5 has been released! Up until now version 0.11.2 to 0.11.4 has only been about bug fixes and therefore I've not made a big fuss about making a whole news post about it. But this version has a new big feature into it as well, and as we are getting closer and closer to the Steam release I really need your help to find all those nasty bugs and confirm that I've solved older bugs.
So I've finally added a achievement feature. Hopefully this will give the players a greater sense of accomplishment. I've seen really impressive dungeons built by some of you players, and I feel bad that I haven't let the game confirm the feeling that what you have done is special!

Right now I only have a handful of achievements, but I've got no problems increasing this list. So if you have any ideas on new achievements just let me know Smile


Achievements

So as you can see here we have the achievements shown in the main menu. Right now there are 15 achievements:
  • First cyclotaur - Create a cyclotaur creature.
  • Conquer all portals - Conquer all the human spawning portals in the dungeon.
  • Catch first fish - Catch a fish by building a bridge out to a school of fish.
  • Build all rooms - Unlock and build all rooms types.
  • First trade - Make a trade with other collonizations.
  • Imp army - Own 50 or more imp creatures.
  • Learn barrel roll - Level up an impanzee to learn the creature skill barrel roll.
  • Learn bull rush - Level up an cyclotaur to learn the creature skill bull rush.
  • Learn butchering - Level up an piggeh to learn the creature skill butchering.
  • Learn frog tongue - Level up an fishman to learn the creature skill frog tongue.
  • Learn hurricane - Level up an knight to learn the creature skill hurricane.
  • Learn steal - Level up an rogue to learn the creature skill steal.
  • Learn stunning block - Level up an orc to learn the creature skill stunning block.
  • Learn teleport - Level up an imp to learn the creature skill teleport.

If you load an old game where you've progressed far you will probably get all those achievements instantly. But if you'd like you could start from the beginning and try to get them one by one, and by doing this also confirming that they are working as they should. This is after all a bug-testing version Tongue
You can also reset the achievements by going into the main menu and pressing "Options->Lock achievements".

A lot of bugs has been solved but need confirmation

As the bugs gets reported they also get solved. But solving them isn't the whole story, they also needs to be confirmed that they are solved. So here is the big list of solved bugs that need confirmation from you the players Smile

Final words

My hope is to release Dwelvers on Steam on Saturday, but before I do that I need to solve the remaining bugs and make sure that the bugs I've solved really are solved. So thank you all for helping me through this process Big Grin

I really hope you enjoy this version, and if there is something you don't like, please let me know so that I can make it right.


Dwelvers Alpha v0.11.5 is available for download only at the Dwelvers Website.

That will be a hell of bug testing hours, I feel challenged! Shy
But hey, Rome was not built in a day... and actually not in hours either, let's get right into it.

Getting started here soon, struggling with Turkey brain. Stoopid Thanksgiving and all that yummy food.

Speaking of not being built in a day, check out my latest iteration of the DM Room

Thanks, I'll have to post a save file so you can check out the full layout. It's full of winding stairways and columns, but now it's way past my bedtime...

Here's the save file if you want to take a more detailed look. It still has much left to do, but I'll have to wait to return to that once we've finished debugging for the Steam release.

That will be funny when people seeing first a 0.11.1 version will see that the next release have maybe .8 or .9 at the end. Big Grin

I can play game without getting any error for now, thanks Rasmus. Smile

If I could suggest something - would you mind to add a small information in the "lock achievements" that this option will reset/delete all obtained so far achievements?

Oh there were a decent amount of carbs for sure Tongue

Well, I think I'm calling it a day. Think it's been a while since the list of Bugs/Issues & Crashes leaked over to a second page, but at least a lot of them are confirmed. The label just hasn't been changed yet.

Yea, finally we can get rid of all of them especially these very hard to find. At least I hope Rasmus will release a Steam version in which none bugs (except these left for the future... or maybe he will be able to solve them too?) are present on the list of Bugs/Issues & Crashes.

Game now switches between desktop and game very smooth, even game closing after quit was never that fast.
