Build 1239 - Crash Hotfix

This build only contains a hotfix for a crash bug in 1236 related to the unicode changes - servers should be more stable and people should be able to enjoy more uninterrupted play.

Have Fun!

Build 1236 - Fixes and Archer Tweaks

A quick one, so only a few changes this time around.
First up:
We're hearing you on the archer shotgun changes
This has been a strongly dividing issue - some like it, some hate it, there are certainly more archers and more arrows flying.
To counteract this we've made the outer arrows of overcharged shots disintegrate after a moderate distance; you can still use them for support and CQC, but cant rain them in big arcs.
If this isn't enough to stabilise the opinions around it and result in a good archer meta we'll take a vote on where to go next. So far we're seeing more archers, which we take as an indication that the class is currently more fun for the average joe - we've just got to find a balance that appeases the higher tier players and those maining other classes.
Fix and Tweak Summary

  • Potential Fix for invisible mines
    This one has been clamoured about for a while - we thought this was fixed a few builds ago but
  • Fixed Builders getting half materials
    This was a hard to catch typo bug that slipped in halfway through the last round of changes; was good that it was caught early after the release though and has been fixed now.
  • Fixed some spike network sync issues
    at the cost of a little latency in the spikes reaction
  • Removed archer ignoring fixed camera setting
    We decided to just let players choose properly; some people have been complaining about this both ways so we removed the conflicting setting.
  • Clantag re-added to character name in scoreboard
    Adding a new column would take too long, so the clantag was just added to the name column again.
  • Clantag colour is same as name colour on mouse hover
  • Removed "invalid utf8 spam" for people with invalid names
    should just cleanly replace bad characters now.
  • Siege Engine Conversion Tweaks
    Siege engines can't be converted in 0 seconds flat any more, and in fact cannot be sat into before conversion; This should make defending a forward ballista a little simpler and mean a little less "hot potato" seat swapping.
We'll see how it goes over the weekend, thanks for bearing with us with some of these more experimental changes!
Have Fun!

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”

Minecraft has shown me that some people find building a giant fortress very satisfying.

But you know what's more satisfying? Raiding said fortress, finding the plebeian who built it and curbstomping him while you blow up his precious work.

THAT is satisfaction.

I love this game. That being said, the complete absense of critical thinking drives me insane. This is pretty much only an online vs game. You will have teammates that will waste resources on a Taj Mahal pit trap that never sees use or is destroyed by one blast. You will get towers made by your team that offer very little defense but are tall enough to allow the other team to safely jump over your solid, defensible, lower resource cost tower. If you have enough friends and can get a server on the cheap the game is amazing. Playing pub is a die roll, but you will have magical moments.

I played KAG before it was one steam, one of the best games I own.
It has all you need, Building, Swordfighting, Pixel Graphics, Bows, Arrows, Mods etc.
Unfortunately the community has shrunk severely down to about 95-100 players.

This game is epic, Its got a great player base to. This is a great 2D game if you enjoy player vs player with team support. So become a archer to defend your base from a far while letting other knights running in to mele. Or become a builder and help build and repair your defense for your team, theirs alot to do. And the different game modes are great, if you like building and team work in and dont mind 2d you might love this game!

A fun mix of Terraria's building format and a relatively simple combat system, this game requires no real effort and can be played on a short attention span.

This game is not as awesome as it looks. The graphics are appealing, but that's as far as it goes. Here's a list of things that annoy me:

-Jump is up. Why? Because you travel vertically when you jump, of course!
-Ladders are climbed by jumping. It makes sense with the default controls, up to jump, but I changed them. Because pressing up to jump is stupid.
-Everything is overcomplicated. If you want to pick stuff up, you hold the pick up key, click on the item, then it sort of floats in front of your character. From there, you open your inventory and drag the item in.
-The sound effect for an enemy warrior dying is the Wilhelm Scream. Every single time.
-The sound effect for picking up a large coin (which, mercifully, is automatic) is the same exact sound used for picking up a coin in Super Mario World.
-Chickens drop nothing. Cows drop nothing. Sharks drop steak.
-Don't bother trying to stay on a ladder while swordfighting, because the ladder breaks when you hit it with your sword a few times.
-It seems buggy. In the "Save the princess" mode, I went into a castle and every enemy randomly exploded into blood and body parts for no reason whatsoever.

Of course, lots of people say this game is good. Maybe I'm just nitpicking. But I really, really, wanted to like this game. And I don't.

I want to say I really enjoy this game but there are a few things that really bug me

1) When you play a game and your team looks like it might start to lose most of your team jumps ship into the other side, which is why people grief alot- to even things up.

2) The community is not as teaching as the game would have you think so if you want to play this game well you should read alot of guides

Overall I want to like this game: the components are there but the execution is poor.

We need locking teams unless it is uneven then the bigger team is the only side that should have the option to switch to make this game really good other than that I recommend.

Great Gameplay :)
Good players.
Love the falling castles.

Servers can be a bit laggy from time to time.

Hope to see a them make a K.A.G 2, Or a game close to this.

Also I bought a steam card and paid more as i live in canada. And now all the games are in canadian dollars. SO I AM PAYING TWICE TO GET K.A.G, OR ANY OTHER GAME >:( Should of bought it on gog.
