Huge Loading Improvements & Improved Karaoke

Hey guys!

I've been working hard on updating Stage Presence since my last post and wanted to update you on the improvements.

  • Massive improvements to loading times. Game loads ~85% faster (load times now between 10 - 15 seconds).
  • New Karaoke custom music system that allows users to load .mp3, .flac or .wav files. Will soon support internet radio streams. Also cleans up clarity of custom music.
  • Decreased RAM usage, improving game stability for some users.
  • Improved crowd animation LOD distances.
  • Fixed bug where users were unable to load custom music if they loaded music, played a karaoke game, switched music in-game and then returned to main menu.

The big one is the loading time improvement I rolled out today. This makes it MUCH quicker to get into a game and makes the game much more stable.

I'm working on a few other upgrades for the project. Currently I'm upgrading the version of VRTK the game uses which will improve the quality and performance of the VR version of the game (and add a few small features). That will hopefully be rolled out in the next month.

Cheers again for all your support,

Week 1 Update

Hey guys,

It's been 1 week today since we launched! It's been a pretty crazy week - it's been super cool seeing people finally able to play the game!

We had a few issues at launch with bugs so every day this week I've been rolling out patches and fixes and adding features people have requested. Here's what the last week has brought:

  • Added ability to load custom music on Karaoke mode during gameplay via the Pause Menu.
  • Added first pass at in-game Audio Settings menu. Currently only allows basic controls of various volume settings. Will soon have more complex options.
  • Made crowd respond more quickly to microphone input
  • Added HUD for PC desktop players. This makes it easier to understand how the crowd are reacting and how much time remains in the game.
  • Made the game less likely to tell you to “Sing Quieter” when you’re already whispering.
  • Lowered the level of bloom and sunshaft intensity in each scene.
  • Fixed issue with Pause Menu buttons not being properly selectable in VR.
  • Fixed bug with microphone error message appearing when returning to main menu after playing a game.
  • Fixed bug that caused the ‘Pause Menu’ to not function correctly in VR.
  • Fixed End-Of-Game ‘Back’ and ‘Return to Menu’ buttons not working in desktop mode.
  • Fixed issue with main menu becoming unusable in VR after hitting ‘Back’ if the player was previously on the ‘Microphone Select Screen’
  • Fixed Main Menu “Shout to test microphone” EQ delay.
  • Fixed issue with multiplayer height measure gizmo not working when returning to the main menu after playing a game.
  • Fixed graphics quality not being set correctly after returning to main menu after playing a game
  • Fixed more issues with using pointers to select menu items.
  • Fixed a crash when playing a game in VR, returning to the main menu and completing another game.
  • Fixed minor issue with tool tips not hiding correctly.
  • Fixed Karaoke 'Skip' button being unusable in 1-microphone VR setups.
  • Started work on adding audio settings (not accessible in-game yet).
  • Fixed issue where bottles etc. were colliding with intro text and advice text colliders.

I'm working hard on adding the few extra features people have requested and as you can see we've come a long way in just a week.

If you've enjoyed playing Stage Presence, please leave a positive Steam review. Those reviews really do make a huge difference to small indie games like this.

About This Game

Stage Presence is the anti-guitar hero. A comedy-horror-karaoke game where you need to use your voice and wits to win over a fickle mob!

You're the lead singer in the world's unluckiest band playing a huge show when the bands equipment fails! You need to keep the crowd entertained with your voice (and weird unlockables) while the gear is fixed. As the crowd get angrier, they start heckling, throwing bottles of piss at you, shining lasers in your eyes and turning into demons. The usual stuff.

Stage Presence's unique Multiplayer mode puts you in the crowd in another player's game! Cheer them to victory or heckle them failure with the gear at your disposal - laser pens, bottles, glowsticks and flares!

  • A campaign that takes you through weirder and weirder venues - from a haunted cathedral to an exploding moon base!
  • Unlock new gear to help you win over the crowd like Mystery Pills, Smashable Guitars and The BASS DROP!
  • A unique Multiplayer mode - become a crowd member in another player's game!
  • Full VR support - really feel like an angry mob are throwing bottles of piss at your head in VIRTUAL REALITY!
  • Multiple game modes including Survival and Karaoke - get abused by the crowd to your favorite tunes!
