1.04 Release Notes


Greetings, Starfighters!

1.04 has been pushed to the main branch. This has a few minor fixes, including those from 1.03 (which only lived in the beta branch).

  • Fixed healing icon causing log spam (and stutter) on some machines
  • Fixed heavy weapon ammo icons on allied fighters
  • Special projectiles like ECM will handle losing their owner or target (no more hanging in space)
  • Fixed some sound channels not being affected by the volume control (such as UI beeps)
  • Split the camera strafe controls out so they can be bound by separate buttons instead of just an axis. If you had rebound these controls, they may be reverted.

If you run into any issues, report them on the forums. Use this post to help you find your debug information: http://steamcommunity.com/app/283160/discussions/0/305510202679777602/#c133258092252958627

Good hunting!

House of the Dying Sun is a tactical space shooter that puts you in the cockpit of the Empire's most deadly interceptor and in command of the Harbinger Fleet. Hunt down the enemies of your dying empire and upgrade your warships with new weapons and abilities earned during your campaign of terror.

Key Features:

  • Classic Space Sim Combat: Fly from the cockpit of the Executor Mk II with gameplay heavily influenced by the titans of yesteryear
  • Take Command: Give orders to any vessel in your fleet from a tactical overview, switch to another fighter, or pause time and carefully consider your next move
  • Replayable Scenarios: Choose one of four increasingly-brutal difficulties in each of the 14 campaign scenarios.
  • Powerful Upgrades: Complete bonus objectives to earn special fleet upgrades such as the Gap Drive or the Kamikaze Chassis. You'll need these to tackle the most difficult scenarios.
  • VR & Monitor Support: House of the Dying Sun was carefully designed for both traditional monitors and VR headsets such as the HTC Vive. It also supports 21:9 displays!
