7/22 patch!

I have nothing clever to say.

Bugfixes!
- Fixed the longstanding bug where sometimes Player 1's inputs would be duplicated as Player 2 on the Training Mode dummy / on the Controller Config screen! Now everyone can use Training Mode normally. :^) (Thanks BlueFeena for helping!)
- Fixed a random crash in super-shadow rendering when Feral Edge collides with Motor Brigade. (Thanks Triblue for sending me crash replays!)

Replay Playback
- Pressing MP while watching a replay will enable the "simple" Attack Data display. Note that it begins when you enable it, so if you enable it during a combo the current-combo-damage values will be incorrect.
- Pressing MK during combat, not round transitions or the pause menu, while watching a replay will toggle 25% slow-motion on/off. (Thanks Liam for reminding me.)

Bug Reporting
- If you have Replays enabled and the game crashes during a fight in any mode where Replays are saved, it will automatically save CRASH_REPLAY.ini and .rnd in the normal replay folder. Renaming those files to a valid replay number and playing it back in Replay Theater SHOULD reliably crash the game again. If it does, send 'em to me somehow!

Quick Match? More like BugFIXED Match!

:^)

General
- Fixed Quick Match not submitting any new wins to the leaderboard ever, which I accidentally broke when I made it support 3/5 sets. (thanks BeizlFreiz!)

While looking at how to fix that bug, I found another one.

(I briefly considered just writing this bugfix as "Fixed a bug with score reporting on PC," but we're Lab Zero and we own our mistakes as well as our successes.)

THE FOLLOWING BUG WAS PC (WIN/MAC/LINUX) ONLY. IT DID NOT AFFECT ANY CONSOLES. Every version has different leaderboard code.
Disclaimer: I may not have written this code, but I did fix it! :^P
[deep breath]
- Fixed...a bug...with PC Quick Match score reporting...that has been present since the very first PC build...where the check for when to report scores to the leaderboard was
if(mWinningPlayer == 0)
instead of the correct
if(mWinningPlayer == myPlayerNumber)
...the end result being that if Player 1 won the game, both players would report a win for themselves. If Player 2 won, neither player would report a win. So the PC leaderboard currently reflects the number of times you played a Quick Match where Player 1 won the game, rather than the number of times you won. Heh?

AGAIN, THIS DID NOT APPLY TO CONSOLES. CONSOLE SCORE REPORTING IS FINE.

The game now correctly reports a win only for the player that won, all the time.

I'm not going to reset the leaderboards, though.
*G1antK1ngTurtlE* can keep the huge pile of bodies, even though some of them are illusory. :^)

This game does involve girl's and they do have skulls. TO bad I can't find any online matches though. Which would be fine if I had friends that I didn't distance myself from.

Looks amazing. The animaiton is some of the best in any 2D fighting game.

The game is way too complicated and difficult for me to play, though. My fingers just can't go fast enough to do the combos and stuff. If you're a hardcore fan of games like Street Fighter, this probably won't be an issue for you. But it's just not a game for more casual players like myself.

Great 2D Fighting game. It would be nice if they put more characters, since there's not many, but I'm pretty sure there will be more new characters. Awesome game.

An amazing 2d fighter you could compare to Marvel V Capcom 3, with amazing combos, animations, and voice actors.

Also you can't forget about the boobs 10/10.

I never seriously got into laying fighting games until I played this game.

I recieved my copy of 2nd Encore from a humble bundle, and first time I booted up story mode (played as Filia, I came in completley blind and I think I chose well :) ) I was so terrible I got demolished over and over and over again. But the game was too pretty to just shove aside. I have now beaten all the story mode campaigns, even Fukua's (Finally!) and I love this beautiful, beautiful game.
