Barony V2.0.5 BETA

Folks,

I'd like to announce the release of beta v2.0.5.
To switch to the beta branch:
* Right click on Barony in your steam library -> Properties -> BETAS -> and select "beta" from the dropdown menu. Note that you may need to restart Steam to see the beta branch.
See below for full changelog, but for a quick rundown, this version contains controller support, various minor additions, bug fixes, and some major optimizations.

Changelog:
* Implemented controller support.
* Added /gold command.
* Added /minotaurlevel command.
* Added a resolution change confirmation.
* Added a minotaur warning icon for minotaur levels.
* Added new sprites which you can use in the editor to set chest types 0 to 8. Continue using the old chest sprite for randomly selected chest type (also means existing map files do NOT have to be changed).
* Split off character sheet's skill pages into its own window.
* Drawing and logic optimizations.
* Optimizations to frequently called functions.
* Small change to way minimap is drawn -- should help with non-optimised drivers on low-end cards.
* Massive entity optimizations: now use hash map.
* Fixed some GUI issues.
* Fixed crash when closing a chest.
* Fixed keys and mouse controlling main menu selection separately.
* Fixed bug with improper keying through pause menu.
* Fixed a multiplayer chest GUI bug.
* Code maintenance, clean-up, and some minor fixes.
* Should you choose to build the game yourself from the repository, you can opt to compile with OpenAL instead of FMOD (or neither to disable sound completely)


Note for translators: This version modifies en.txt. Translations will need to be updated.

A big thank-you to the community for the continued interest, including contributions to the Github repository.

Barony v2.0.4 Release

Howdy folks,

I've released the latest update, bringing with it a slew of bug fixes as well as several new features.

Check it out:

  • Added a "right click protection" option (when set, navigating to the right click menu in a player's inventory is required for selection).
  • Background colors for items: yellow=unidentified, green=blessed (blue in colorblind mode), red=cursed.
  • Save the last-used name and automatically fill it into name text box.
  • /startfloor command.
  • /splitscreen command (TEST COMMAND PLEASE IGNORE).
  • Shift-left clicking an item in the inventory drops it.
  • Auto appraise option.
  • -map argument for editor.
  • Tooltip noting that disabling "[ ] Traps" only disables trap generation, does not remove traps built-into a map.
  • Changed "New Game" -> "Start Game".
  • Game assigns default keybindings if config file is missing any.
  • Fixed weaponless creatures doing 0 damage on attack.
  • Fixed crash from incorrectly reading in gamma config option.
  • Fixed mouse cursor not showing up in Steam overlay in OSX.
  • Fixed bug where followers were not created upon loading the game from a save file.
  • Fixed crash on loading save-game if followers have an inventory.
  • Fixed an issue with text positioning on the victory screens.
  • Fixed being able to store spells in chests.
  • Fixed being able to attempt to sell spells to shopkeeper.
  • Fixed a crash with invite friends button if not connected to Steam network.
  • Fixed bug where enemies would not walk through pickaxed walls.
  • Fixed savegame2.dat not getting deleted.
  • Fixed bug where clients wouldn't drop inventory on death.
  • Fixed crash bug involving magic reflection in multiplayer.
  • Fixed bug where you couldn't place sprites in editor.
  • Fixed servers ignoring game type on loading save game (direct-connect vs steam).
  • Fixed clients ignoring save game type (direct-connect vs steam).
  • Fixed edge case where you could drop a spell >:|
  • Fixed being able to enable godmode even with cheats off.
  • Fixed unsustaining a spell instantly recasts it.
  • Fixed bug where game would capture mouse after closing Steam overlay in situations when it shouldn't.
  • Fixed bug where cure ailment spell and potion wouldn't stop player from burning.
  • Fixed falling boulders clipping through other tiles.
  • More C++ porting.

The beta branch has been removed and all changes in the v2.0.3 BETA are included with this release.

And last of all, I'd like to thank the community for showing interest and actively participating in the continued development of Barony.
Stay tuned for future updates -- and keep an eye on the Github repository if you want to see what's cooking!

About This Game

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike with cooperative multiplayer that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Features


  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • A complex yet intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN (includes Steam and direct-IP connections)
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

The Story So Far


Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.
