New build on OpenBeta - camera fixes

17 июня 2014

Hi all,

We set Skiffy free in amongst the codebase and he's come up with something.
This is what he said:
Ska-Skee Skeeee

That wasn't particularly helpful, so we went and had a look at what he did in the code.
Turns out that...

Camera state transitions when you enter and exit a camera override region are now improved.
There are three major components to the improvements.

  • When transitioning between two “Side Scroll Camera” states (the most common transition type by far), instead of blending the resulting camera state the code now remains in the one state and instead blends the state parameters.
  • For the remaining state transitions, transitions between different states when entering an override are now performed as a cosine blend, instead of a linear blend. (Looks the code used to attempt something overly complex with springs before switching to linear.)
  • The camera code now maintains a running approximation of the camera’s velocity. When a state blend is performed, the old ‘from’ state is extrapolated based on the velocity when the state changed rather than being a fixes position.

Long story short, these changes fix the *CLUNK* the camera would experience when entering and existing the camera override regions.

So yeah - check it out on OpenBeta and let us know what your thoughts are on it. We think it's pretty cool.

Cheers
Linds

Game updated (on the "normal" install branch)

6 июня 2014

Hi all!

We've pushed the build that was up on the OpenBeta on to the default/normal branch now - so everybody can switch off the OpenBeta if they want to.
This means that the following is in place for a standard install:


60 fps selection

  • There is an option to set “60 Hz” on and off in the graphics menu now – to unlock to 60 fps
  • 60fps is the new default setting
Demo
  • The demo build should be working again! Hooray!
Graphics
  • Hopeful fixes to some peoples' inability to select fullscreen resolutions. Full screen resolution window now shows display rate (Hz) and resolutions.
  • Added fix for Nvidia 660 issue, which stops some textures displaying as white
  • Added some new larger window sizes, that correspond to UHD display resolutions
Borderless Window Mode
  • As a work around for those people who are having full screen resolution issues, we have implemented borderless window mode, as a command line option
  • In the Properties panel for Blade Kitten, click “set launch option” and use the following commandline: noborder x=0 y=0
  • This will create a window at the top left of your screen, at whatever resolution you have set as your “window” resolution in the graphics settings
  • You can then use the x= and y= offsets to change the position of the borderless window
  • It will not remember the last window position, so that you don’t accidentally “lose” the position
  • Borderless window mode supports minimize and maximize via the system menu
User Interface
  • Added smooth/continuous scrolling with the mouse on the scroll lists in the breaker menu and PC options screen
  • Swap to use X360 controller icons when the gamepad control configuration is selected, instead of "generically similarly colored" icons
  • Added basic mouse scroll wheel support to the Resolution Select, Control Config and Breaker Item screens
  • Added crowd-sourced translations for 60 fps mode - for "Frame Rate Lock"
Language Selection
  • The game now selects the appropriate language, based off the Steam language setting (in Steam Preferences -> Interface)
  • If Steam is set to a language that doesn’t exist in the game, it will default to English
  • The game supports English, French, German, Spanish and Italian
Background gamepad support
  • There’s another command line that will turn on background gamepad support – so you could (eg) run the game on one screen with gamepad, while somebody else is doing something on the 2nd monitor with keyboard/mouse
  • Add the following to the launch options (with a space between any other options): MKBackgroundGamepad

Have fun!

Не знаю, кто такая Blade Kitten, но вроде как про нее существуют комиксы. Что же касается игры, то она оправдывает свои 5 долларов. Сама игра представляет собой платформенную бродилку и она бы осталась обычной аркадкой, если бы "китти" не владела навыками популярного сейчас в игровой индустрии паркура. Различные акробатические трюки делают игру увлекательнее и добавляют экшен. При этом трюки касаются не только в боевой системе, но и в других случаях, например "китти" может залезть на стену, выполнить второй прыжок в воздухе, отталкиваться от стен и многое другое. "Китти" предпочитает драться руками и ногами, но в особо тяжелых случаях не стесняется прибегать к мечу. Единственная претензия у меня возникала при дефолтных настройках управления (клавиатура и мышь), но перенастроив управление на вариант "только клавиатура" - проблема исчезла. С геймпадом наверняка будет и вовсе идеально. Уровни сложные (по-крайней мере мне так показались) и в них можно легко запутаться.

Игра предлагается на 5 языках, включая английский и исключая русский. Впрочем, в интернете (вроде как) существует русификатор, однако суть игры и без него понятна. Рекомендовать не буду, игра на любителя, плюс присутствует "анимешность". Но мне понравилась.

Забавный платформер с приятной на глаз графикой. Мне понравился. Из минусов могу отметить, что игра периодически лагает и даже вылетает (cкорее всего это из-за моего старого железа).

After being taken down from Steam due to the previous publisher Atari's rights to the game expiring, Blade Kitten is back and self-published by Krome Studios themselves!

As well as being available for a lower price, the latest update improves the responsiveness of the controls, adds two new costumes, and prepares the game for the long-overdue Episode 2 DLC. Oh, and there's trading cards now!

As for the game itself, I'd say it's very easy to recommend at the current sale price of $3. It's not very long, ends abruptly and it's not the best platformer out there, but it's charming and fun to play. And hey, there's a demo if you want to try it out anyway, so don't just take my word for it. Give it a look.

Strongly recommended as worth the price, especially when it's on sale. Don't expect this to be equivalent of a $50 game and you'll quite enjoy it. The video gives an excellent example of what gameplay will be like, including cutscenes. It does end suddenly and there is/was some difficulty in making the sequel, however the developer IS working on it after all so there's hope!

The main character is snarky and sarcastic and a catgirl. If you didn't really get that from the trailer or the name of the game itself, then you don't get much sympathy from me.

The levels are HUGE, the animations are smooth, the plot is mildly interesting and a little bit of a page-turner (which is why it sucks that it suddenly cuts off and we've been without the next part of the story for so long.)

If you like side-scrolling platformers and can stand (or even like) the protagonist, this game is worth picking up.
