New Update - Fixed Attract Audio crash, and Attract audio limit and more!

Dear Neon Fanatics,

We have some awesome stuff planned for Neon in the future, but for now, here are a few fixes here and there. Enjoy!

Here are the latest patch notes:

Major Fixes:
  • Press the HOME button to reload all custom textures in the game instantly. Also increased texture load times for custom artwork.
  • Fixed Attract Audio crash, and Attract audio limit. Also improved load times and memory usage of Attract Audio files.
Moderate Fixes:
  • Radio volume can be adjusted with the console command: nra.RadioVolume
Minor Fixes:
  • Special and Lightgun Arcades can now be tested correctly in the Arcade Preview Map.
  • ArcadeMachineDisabled has been added to the Arcade Builder and can now be customised.
Misc Fixes:
  • Genesis / Mega Drive Emulators working on Windows 10 due to PicoDrive emulator update.
  • FPS Cabinets are now in the correct order in the Arcade Builder.

On a side note, we have a lovely Discord Channel for NRA:N that you may wish to participate in. The community is active and you’ll often see us jumping into chats. Hopefully see you there!

Thanks so much for the support. – Joe

Best regards,

Created new and improved Arcade Builder tool!

Dear Retro Fans,

For those who missed it, please take a look at our previous announcement which goes into detail with what we’ve recently been up to: http://steamcommunity.com/games/465780/announcements/detail/1471979126291199601
Well, we promised you we are still here and have been working on Neon. Santa has arrived early with a nice gift for you: New and improved Arcade Builder tool with new system for customising your perfect Arcade and more!

  • Here are the latest patch notes:
    Fixed Color setting for console cartridges didn't work.
    Fixed GameBro backlight enabled by default.
    Fixed Special Cabinet screens aren't aligned properly which lead to pixel bleed.

    Added missing formats.
    Added New Radio Stations for Boombox.
    Added Launch Options into map (Classic, Neon) for the Arcade Builder .
    Added Asynchronous Texture Streaming System for faster Texture and Level loading.

    Created new and improved Arcade Builder tool.

    This new Arcade Builder works with the new Arcade format used in Neon to improve usage with multiple custom arcades and content.

    Check out the tools button on the top bar to begin importing and fixing legacy-arcade format XML files to work with the new format.

    Create a layout from the heading on the left to specify the locations of each arcade or cartridge in the map.

    You can drag and drop nodes from the list onto the layout map itself, or onto the list of nodes on the right.

    Also, you can right click on nodes or tabs to find more options.

    (More information about New Arcade Builder tool below:)
    New Features:
    Arcade Layout System - Create a Layout which specifies the location of your custom arcades within the environment. (Instead of one entire template for the whole arcade) Legacy Import Tools - Import your old arcades from the old XML format to the new JSON format, they can then be used in your custom Layouts. Tabs - You can edit multiple peices of content at once with a more intuative and tab-based interface. Audio Previews - You can preview your audio files for Attract Screens or Tapes within the builder. Texture Previews - You can now preview textures in any supported format, within the builder. Filters - You can use filters to help narrow down a large list of user content to a specific game or platform. Themes - Some people want a more professional and clean interface, we have the option for them! Please note this version is still a work in progress, certain features may not be fully implemented at the moment.
We hope you have an amazing festive break and enjoy your time off with family and friends. Bring on 2018!

Have fun in-game! - Joe

Warmest Regards & Festive Cheers,
Digital Cybercherries Ltd.
