Dweller 1.21.0 Beta
« on: August 12, 2012, 10:37:49 PM »
Hi guys,

I have made a beta of 1.21.0 available and I would very much appreciate if some of you would try it out. Here's a list of the changes:

#368 Ranged weapons that are better than average should have a prefix to their name
#369 Improved logging when sending a save game to help with bug tracking
#370 Damage calculations from ranged attacks is incorrectly affected by wielded melee weapon
#253 Add a base stat cap of 100 but allow items to modify it beyond the cap
#371 Gradually reduce effectiveness of merge as the attacker grows bigger
#372 Fleeing monsters that become cornered will stop fleeing and fight until dead
#373 Monsters should avoid lava
#375 Add Polish translation
#112 Cyrillic encoding wrong when changing language

The version also contains a first version of the improved AI. It is by no means final, but I wouldn't mind if you took it for a test spin and let me know of any odd monster behavior you may come across.

You can grab the beta here: http://files.dwellergame.com/beta/

If you're trying the Android version you have to make sure that you have allowed installation of non-Market apps (can be done in Settings->Security)

I really like the approach with beta being separated from
last stable version. I dunno why, but all the long descriptions
(of monsters and characters) are still showing up in english
in my translation. Might be that the game itself points to the
wrong data.

I'm currently playing the J2SE version not to bother with any
installation. The training Dummy can move and chase lol.

There was an error when changing language that prevented all texts from being loaded. This has been fixed and a new beta has been uploaded (same version number though). The new version also contain some AI improvements. Feedback please!

Hi people

I've just tested last release and at least spanish version now works fine. Thanks Björn. Also, I was playing without pathfinding in first release of 1.21 but with that second one I've activated again and played for a few minutes and it works better (i won't say good in any case xD)

By the way, sorry for my partial inactivity and my short posts, I'm writing from my phone since i have no access to my pc due to some mobo trouble... I'll continue my work when I have access to a box or until I fix my mobo. I'll approach to play last dweller release in a deeper way...

Greets guys :)

No, the J2SE version is for PC, Mac, Linux etc. J2ME is what you play on your non-Android phone.

Remind me again, what problem did you have with large tiles? The game crashed right?

I decided to go ahead and release 1.21.0. I really wanna nail those pesky null pointer bug reports I get from time to time and the new logging and debug facilities in 1.21.0 should help me when I get save games sent to me.

Make sure to send the bug report using ingame option.
I bet it's that elusive bug Bjorn couldn't quite nail down.

Björn, could you send me a rebuild of 1.21 with the last translation modifications? I'm testing in deepness the "bugs" and I need to see if there are fixed the ones I revised.
Thanks :)
