Beta 0.98.8 released

Hey there!

RWR 0.98.8 is now out with plenty of tweaky changes as seen in the change log. Since the previous dev blog post a month ago, also minor update releases 0.98.7 and 0.98.6 happened.

While the Minimodes system created initially for Moorland Trenches in 0.98.5 didn’t quite work as well as expected, mostly due to combat ending up happening out in the open fields without any cover, we’re giving it another shot at Rattlesnake Crescent in this update. The modes themselves have gone through minor improvements such as the teddy crates being visible in map view to minimize the time to locate them, team deathmatch comes with player count based max scores, that kind of thing. Bots are now more eager to follow players as leaders so the modes should play better with smaller number of players as well. Looking forward to another announced event to get more people to play PvP for a change! :)

We’re really close to RWR 0.99 now and have decided to sync that major milestone with the Mac port release. I will be adding the Mac port demo in Steam a bit early, hopefully this weekend, to help testing compatibility between different Macs, so if there are Mac people reading the blog, all testing help and reports would be highly appreciated once it’s out!

RWR 0.99 also means that we’re closing in on the final 1.0 release, the goal we’ve been working towards for the past 4 years. 1.0 on the other hand will mean a goodbye to Steam Early Access and Desura Alphafunding, and to avoid sudden price changes at the final release, the final price has now been made active as 14.99 USD/EUR. If you’re coming late to the game, just sit tight right now, Winter Christmas is coming and you might still have a chance to grab it with the previous Early Access price!

      Same, porting with Wineskin just doesn’t cut it :(
      Hopefully the Mac Version runs on older OSX (like Snow Leopard)…….

    Already missed the weekend I wanted to have the demo out in Steam, d’oh, hitting into some weird stuff with the configuration tool.. there just always has to be something different about OSX :P

    Still, I’m getting there, have already played the game and demo via Steam myself!

      OMG! Can’t wait!
      I’m pretty sure no Mac user cares if it’s slightly broken for Mac as long as we can play it smoothly!
      Keep up the fire!!!!

    All right, the Mac demo is out starting now in Steam; follow the oddly worded “Download PC Demo” perfectly expected Download Mac Demo button to start download & installation. Also see this post on the forum

    Please send me some reports how things are going with the demo, surely it just can’t work on all OS / HW variant combinations :P The forum thread is preferred for tracking stuff, but I’ll also try to remember to poll the blog comments. Also e-mail works as usual:

    Hey since I bought the game a long time ago to show support it says I cant download a demo version, please help?

    • Posted December 19, 2014 at 14:16 | Permalink

      Yeh, Steam does that, it doesn’t allow you to download a demo to your account where you already own the full game. The full version will go live today, most likely.
