Update 16 Hotfix is Live

Hey Hunters,

Thanks for your patience and collaboration during the release of Update 16. Even though the game was stable on our own PCs, changing so much of the code at once is bound to cause issues for some people around this big world of ours.

You have proven once again what an amazing community you are by being patient and respectful, reporting bugs (with very high reporting quality, I might add), and even confirming afterwards if we fixed them or not. That's how awesome you are.

We hope that 99% of the main issues with the game have been resolved by now, but please let us know if that is not the case. We are hard at work on Steam Workshop now, but we also want to make sure the base game is fully playable to everyone.

Here's a list of fixes:
**********
Fixed a crash with "angle_precision" when shooting guns;
Fixed a crash when dying on co-op or endless mode;
Fixed a crash when dying on the final boss;
Fixed a crash with object pooling when shooting;
Fixed a crash with the Ghost Ducan on Spookylands;
Fixed a crash with the Kami Tank reflecting bullets;
Fixed a crash with the spikes on Spookylands;
Fixed a crash when picking up ammo;
Fixed an issue with the minigun's fire rate;
Fixed an issue with the dynamic menus not working;
Fixed an issue where low framerate would occur on loop 1 & 2 of Endless;
Fixed an issue where low framerate would render the character unmovable;
********

Cheers,

Update 16 - Port to new engine, bug fixes, MASSIVE performance improvements

Hey Hunters,

Long time no see, uh?

Sorry about the ridiculously long delay between these last updates. We've been hard at work around here - we shipped Chroma Squad on XB1/PS4/iOS/Android, released "Star Vikings Forever" on mobile and since then have been focusing on the new Relic Hunters game: Relic Hunters Legend!

But we found time to update our dear Relic Hunters Zero. "Free forever, updated forever", that was the promise, remember? :)

Today's update is a port to a new engine (Game Maker Studio 2), with a full re-work of a few technical problem spots in the game.

A lot of old stability issues and crashes have been fixed (including the co-op and the Endless/Daily ones).

There are massive performance improvements and a new "delta-time based" code that will no longer lock the game's framerate. Older computers will have a MUCH better experience with the game now. Let us know how it goes for you!

Speaking of promises, we have reworked other areas of the code as well - with the goal of allowing something that was previously impossible: Steam Workshop! Oh yeah, you heard it right!

Instead of the "Community Pack", we are making it easier to access everyone's content without us having to curate it.

The current plan is to release Steam Workshop support for guns on the game's birthday (August 18th), and then roll out support for other things like characters over the following weeks.

We are doing our best to hit the August 18th deadline, but it is going to be tight. Please forgive us if we can't make it - on the very least, we will have a Beta for anyone interested in helping us iron out the bugs and check out the feature.

Thank you for your love and support for the last years! There are BIG things coming for the Relic Hunters franchise, and it's going to be a wild ride.

A few extra notes before I go:
- OSX and Linux versions of this update are NOT live yet, we will notify you when they are;
- Open Source code will be available soon at GitHub, we are going to create a branch for the old GMS version of the game and tidy everything up;

Let's go hunting!

~Mark
