Patch 0.43.17

Over the last few weeks there have been many content additions to QuiVr. New inventory systems, items, tutorials, and enemies have all improved the game's depth and features.

However, with new additions come new bugs, so it is good to to take time every so often to focus on fixing issues instead of adding new features. This week's update contains mostly bug fixes and performance improvements to keep up with the expanding feature-set.

Teleporter Enemy Attacking Early
As this is the longest standing bug in QuiVr, I started writing an explanation about it, but after getting to 10 paragraphs and lots of images I realized that it really deserves its own post.

This update improves a number of things to help reduce the occurrence of the issue, but does not fix it entirely. Some of the navigation changes to help fix the bug also improve general navigation performance and some other rare issues.

Corrupted Player Inventories
There are still some issues regarding invalid inventories being generated for new players. While I am still working on an automatic solution (and more importantly searching for the cause of the last few rare issues), I am doing my best to manually fix individual player inventories as I am notified.

If you find that your new items are not saving between sessions, please email me (support@alvios.com) with your steam username or SteamID so that I can fix it! I apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the issue permanently solved soon.

Multiplayer Freezes and Disconnects
Last update introduced a number of issues that affected players wearing specific items (and affecting anyone they played with) including long game hangs when players joined a multiplayer game. These issues should now be resolved.

I am still investigation issues with occasional disconnecting (without warning) as I am not certain whether this a game or multiplayer server issue.

Debug Console

While technically a feature addition, this should help debug issues in the future. A debug console has been added to the game and it can be brought up using the '~' key. Currently there aren't many commands (pause, resume, help, environment-info) but more will be added as needed.

Other Changes and Fixes
  • Updated to Unity 2017.2.0p2
  • Changed pillar arrow to damage ability
  • Game boost box now increases difficulty based on personal high-score
  • Adjusted arrow nock-trigger to help new players
  • Adjusted tutorial to grant temporary orb-gloves if none are equipped
  • Fixed issue with scoreboard reward for players over rank 10
  • Limited power on bow during first fraction of a second (preventing arrow spam)
  • Owls getting restless
  • Fixed enemy cleanup on death
  • Fixed errors regarding enemy death

Patch 0.43.0

New Inventory Interaction System
This update includes the second half of the new Inventory Management system.

The first addition is a new system for selecting items. Instead of using UI on the mannequin, a new selection system has been created. It consists of two sets of three infinite item selectors. They spin infinitely bringing new items into view as they rotate. A lot of work and care has been put into the actual spinning mechanism to make it feel really great to spin (haptics, audio, and inertial transference from hand to shelf).

The second addition is a change to item equipping, which now works similarly to the Item Reforge station. Equipping the item now consists of dragging the item orb from the item spinners over to the mannequin.

There may be some more experimentation done in the future with different methods of equipping items as well. For instance I tried creating a Mirror system which looked really nice but the performance of the mirror alongside all the other things going on in the Armory was too much of a hit and I couldn't keep the framerate at acceptable levels.

I'll continue experimenting with it as the effect does look pretty cool.

User Item Database Issues
This week an issue was discovered that affected new players' inventories.

Unfortunately the system for populating the starting items was not working as intended and resulted in new players having "undefined" inventory entries.

This wasn't immediately detected as the game tries to handle corrupted inventories gracefully, so I am unsure what issues it is actually causing players.

The issue has been fixed for new players, though that still leaves a few hundred people with corrupted inventories. I have implemented a temporary server-side fix that will attempt to detect corrupted inventories and make repairs when a new item is earned/replaced.

As I am not sure what issues this may have caused I wanted to let everyone know about the issue. If you see anything strange going on with your items please let me know in the forums or on Discord and I will try to sort it out!

New Death Location

The teleport location for death has been updated to be a special teleporter location that is only used when dead. It is located above and behind the currently defended gate (with a translucent platform to prevent issues with fear of heights) and is only visible while there. This is to prevent dying and respawning at the same teleporter as well give you a slightly different perspective on the battlefield while dead.

Official Discord
In slightly non-game related news, the QuiVr Discord server has now been verified and is now a "Verified Discord Server". We even get our own invite url (discord.gg/quivr) which is pretty sweet!

Other Changes and Fixes
  • Added first-time-user Summit layout
  • Fixed player shield timing for Aldur Wards
  • Fixed item replacement for worse items
  • Fixed issue with Hallowed/Primordial item rerolls not saving
  • Fixed lobby activation issue when leaving armory
  • Implemented initial Rich Presence for QuiVr on Discord
  • Fixed enemy pathing after gate tiles
  • Added server message system
