DQDX Patch #10 -- Version 2.1.1b

This is technically a quick hotfix/compatibility patch addendum to Patch #9 - 2.1.0c , but it also finally resolves a few key issues.

Current status:
Windows ANGLE: Yes
Windows GL: Yes
Mac: Yes
Linux: Yes

Changelog:

- Fixed issues with Steam Controller support
- Auto-detect input device on start, fix issues with options menu navigation
- If launched in big picture mode, default to fullscreen
- Added official Steam Controller configuration
- Fixed annoying crashdumper popups on startup

This should therefore be the first version of the game that fully and properly supports Big picture mode as well as Steam controllers and conventional controllers.

Linux note:
We are officially dropping 32-bit Linux support. Based on our game's stats from the Steam Hardware survey, not a single surveyed user was using a 32-bit build of Linux. Now, the survey sample was about 7% of our players so it's possible that there are some 32-bit Linux players out there, but given the very very low rate of usage and the significant time & work burden involved in maintaining 32-bit builds, we've decided to focus our efforts elsewhere.

We have, however, created a new public beta branch called "linux32" that you can opt into to access an archived build of version 2.0.8x, the last version to support 32-bit Linux.

Update
Also I just posted this on the blog, for those of you who are interested -- has some details about DQII and various other things:

DQDX Patch #9 -- Version 2.1.0c

Hey everyone!

New patch just in time for Thanksgiving!

Current status:
Windows ANGLE: Yes
Windows GL: Yes
Mac: On test_public beta branch
Linux: On test_public beta branch

Update Dec. 5 2016
Version 2.1.1 is now up on test_public, which includes Macintosh and Linux builds (64-bit only from now on, you can keep using archived Linux 32 bit builds by opting into the "linux32" beta branch).

Here's a brief changelog:

- Conventional controller support
- Steam controller support
- Fixed performance bottlenecks
- Fixed some various crashes
- Added soft keyboard overlay for gamepad text input
- Includes initial stab at Japanese / Korean input if you are using those locales. Could be totally wrong! Please provide feedback if you're Japanese or Korean.
- Fixed incorrect wave count bug in endless battles
- Fixed bug in overworld where you could click on off-screen battles
- Fixed unselect defender on select bug
- Fixed journal crash when resolution is small
- Fix glitch with some HP bars
- Fixed tileset glitch at desktop resolution
- Fixed missing lines in cutscenes

A note on performance:
There's been some issues with slowdown in endless battles before, and I *think* I've finally tracked down the issue with this latest performance patch. I used a profiler and found some pretty big slowdown issues and solved them. As with all patches, I could have introduced a regression that slows things down on configurations other than my own machine, so do let me know if you think the performance is better or worse and I'll take another look -- and please confirm that you're actually running version 2.1.0c (title screen, lower right hand corner has the version number). Also note that I can't guarantee solid performance on x16 speed when you've got levels slammed with enemies -- my goal is just to get to reliably solid performance at x2 or x4.

A note on localizations:
This patch adds some new interface text to the game and I haven't had time to get the new text localized. So if you're playing in another language and see english text in various places, that's why.

Defender's Quest Deluxe (DX) Edition is here! Improved graphics, more story, better performance, more of everything you love!

About This Game

Defender's Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense). It focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles.

The battle system builds off of tower defense, with individual characters taking the place of towers. Each character levels-up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. The overall game structure is similar to "tactical" RPG's, but with a real-time battle system. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued while the game is paused.

It also features an engaging, character-driven story written by an actual English major! The story strives to be fast-paced, snappy, and always relevant to gameplay with minimal exposition. Finally, it's got options and accessibility settings out the wazoo, so that you can have the best possible experience!
