Community Announcements - CashOutGame
More Co-Op stuff! Co-Op is almost in a viable release state now. As requested I've added steamworks networking and matchmaking support. Both are early, I've only tested each with 2 players due to limitations. As a result, there's probably a large amount of bugs with the steamworks system related to connecting and disconnecting.

  • Steamworks networking is now supported! Instead of connecting through IP, you can now connect through steam in coop. Instead of connecting through ip, you'll need to connect through the server host's steam id.
  • The ability to connect through IP is still supported though, you'll have the option to choose how the server is hosted.
  • Added a matchmaking option to steamworks connection as well, you can filter by level and difficulty. If you have a password on your match, it'll not show up in the matchmaking.

      • Taunt - For 4 seconds, enemies will be much more likely to attack you, but will attack slower.

    • Support
      • Toxic Fumes - Spawns a gas cloud around all players that poisons enemies.
      • Chaos Armour - For 3 seconds, enemies who deal damage will become confused.

    • Damage
      • Death Mark - The next enemy you hit is marked for death and recieves 100% crits until death.
      • Static Field - Creates a static field at the player that slows and shocks enemies.

    • Global
      • Counter - The next time you take damage, the enemy that fires the shot takes the damage instead of you.

    I plan on supporting steamworks peer to peer networking for the coop as well soon, unfortunately I don't know if it'll be possible. I'm looking into it, if I get it working it will be added, this way there will be no need to port forward.

The last update of the year is here, this one focused on coop again, more and feature completion, the four classes now do something. Along with that, you may notice a huge increase in download size.

This update mainly focused on co-op. When I previously said that co-op was functional, it turns out that wasn't the case, as loading without a crash was impossible. I've fixed the co-op related crashes that I know of, so it should actually be stable now, hopefully.

Small authoring tools update too, just changed up the materials option.

  • It is now possible to specific whether or not materials are glass or metal.
    • Metal - Bullets reflect off of the object.
    • Glass - Enemies will try to fire through blocks as if they can be broken.

Bug Fixes

That's about it. Keep in mind, Co-Op is still early iin development, there's still issues, I'll be doing some more work next patch.

Nothing really NEW in this update (Did some very minor stuff with modding), as it more focused on balance and polish. If you have the authoring tools installed, you'll see it got an update too, this was the debug tools, that's all that was added basically.

Anyways here are the notes.

  • You can now pick up enemies you've knocked out already.

    • Added a debug mode for modding level packs, to make editing easier.
      When modding the putting a ?before any command turns it into a debug command, if the debugger is not running, it will not be compiled.
    • Added the then function "debugmessage", when activated it will send a message to the debugger.

    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a crash caused by enemies having targets other than the player (would be crashing anything that caused enemies to attack eachother, the backup skill and co-op).
    • Pressing the middle mouse click no longer spawns a backup enemy which would crash the game.
    • Very slightly tweaked "junk object" spawning again so blocks don't spawn next to eachother.
    • Enemies in the initial spawning phase can no longer take damage from anything.
    • Neither can knocked out enemies.
    • All situations where the hitsplat and actual damage lost were not the same have been fixed.
    • Fixed a crash caused when switching floors.
    • Fixed the first saved character's items being wiped when playing quickplay.
    • Fixed an issue where enemies would glitch up during the immune phase and attack you right away.
    • Knocked out enemies can no longer revive other knocked out enemies.
    • If you've hacked a door, left, and reentered, said door will now close if you've been spotted.

    • Clamped how much enemies try to dodge shots.
    • Knocked out enemies now stay permanently knocked out if you've cleared the room.
    • Medic enemies now only restore enemies in their squad, and cannot restore enemies while poisoned.
    • You can no longer use skills when poisoned. (Except vaccination.)
    • Enemies now spawn in automatically, but are immune a while longer. (Also changed the visual.)
    • Retooled the weapon generation formula.
    • Legendary weapons now only boost stats by 10% instead of 25%.
    • (Weapons generated before this patch will have old values.)
    • Gun upgrades now increase stats by 3% instead of 5%.
    • Greatly increased the speed that hostaged enemies are knocked out, instead of being stunned when escaping/being let free, they're now immune for a short period of time.

    • Greatsword - Reduced damage from 2.2x to 2.0x.
    • Chainsaw - Reduced damage from .4x to .3x, stealth damage wildly reduced.

    • Dual Pistols - Reduced delay on shoot from .55x to .45x.
    • Bolt Action Rifle - Reduced firing delay from 2.0x to 1.6x.

    Legendary Unique Weapons
      Tesla Gun - Damaage is no longer based on how far the arch travels.

  • Assassin perk - Health per stealth point reduced from 2 per point to 1 per point.

    • Tye Dye Clothes - Increased turret healing greatly, every time the turret heals off the same enemy, the healing charge rate is reduced, increased healing range. Turret now makes noise.

    • Bad Medicine - Reduced the time that enemies attack other enemies from 5 seconds to 2 seconds.
    • Condensed Rage - Increased damage dealt.

    Other Changes
    • Changed how popups work slightly to prevent clunkiness when picking up items.

    I'd like to note that the debugger is not finished, I'll be adding more commands and fixing stuff up. Along with that I'd like to put out a help file for the modding tools.

    Next though, I'd like to focus on co-op, hopefully I can get that actually working as intended, as it's very broken right now.

    Thanks, enjoy!

Nothing major in this update, there was a visual "change" as I fixed a major bug related to saturation issues and lighting, as a result I had to redo some stuff related to lighting.

Anyways here's the patch notes.

  • Did some work on the lab tileset.
  • Changed the way career mode progression works slightly. Levels will now get larger as well as harder depending on the difficulty level.
  • Added the option to play modded levels packs in career mode.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a major visual issue related to saturation. Unfortunately, this means I needed to redo a lot of the lighting, everything may look very different.
  • Fixed an issue related to sound files in mods.
  • Pausing no longer removes all the shadows in the room.
  • Fixed crash caused by unlocking more characters than possible at once.
  • Fixed an issue related to mods and updating.
  • Fixed spawning of junk items while modding.

Other Changes
  • Visual updates.
  • Hitsplats/Popups should be easier to read now.
  • Tightened up the auto-setup again.
  • You can no longer resize the game screen.
  • Tweaked the spawn formula for "junk" objects.

  • Added the ability to change the ambient and light colour.

Along with that, some minor work was done with the authoring tools...

  • Added lighting to the room editor to give better visuals.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a problem where cloned sound files weren't deleted when the game was closed.
  • Fixed an issue related to dropdowns.
  • You can now edit sounds that have already been saved.

Other Changes
  • Updated the sample mod (changed the sounds, potential copyright issues.)

Remember to check out the level pack tab under extras if you want to download some level packs to test out!

Next patch is probably going to be a quality of life patch, with some much needed balance tweaks...

Smaller update, was going to focus on some more stuff but I found some more glitches related to the two major glitches last time.
1. The difficulty and raid size was defaulting to the grand heist raid size. If you felt the raids were too long, this was the cause and it's been fixed.
2. While I fixed class unlocking, the counter for money stolen wasn't going up properly (unless you died, then it'd go up very slowly), so unlocking classes was very difficult.

Hopefully these issues are actually fixed this time.
Anyways here are the patch notes.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue related to equipping clothing ingame in career mode.
  • Enemies can no longer throw items before they spot you.
  • Fixed some potential slowdown issues related to pathfinding.
  • Fixed some issues related to enemies following bloody footprints.
  • Enemies will now actually not try to take cover outside of the room.
  • Fixed enemies carrying items not showing the enemy detection visual.
  • Fixed enemies getting stuck in blocks.
  • Fixed an issue where all career mode levels were the size of grand heists.
  • You can now push moveable blocks when using a gamepad.
  • Fixed being able to open the inventory in the death/raid complete screen.
  • Using an item in inventory in career mode no longer locks you from pressing enter to start the raid.
  • Fixed several issues related to statistics that may have led to not unlocking classes. (Money was only being counted as stolen when you died.)

  • Increased the speed in which enemies lose track of you.
  • Splinter cell enemies now detect you 3x slower.
  • Enemies will now spot you faster if they're more alert, but less if they aren't.
  • Retooled the "alertness" scale to go up much slower, but cap higher.
  • You can now only take enemies who have never spotted you hostage.

Other Changes
  • Changed up how enemies will try to get themselves out of corners if they walk into them.
  • Formally removed enemy learning, was making everything more complicated rather than actually adding anything (was only changing how fast enemies spot you, and what weapon they started with, which didnt do anything).
  • Heavy optimization, the game should run considerably better now. (For perspective, I'm getting approximately 70% better performance compared to
  • As I've updated to a new compiler, I'm expecting a lot of issues, based on testing I fixed everything I could find. That doesnt mean I've fixed everything though.
  • Reduced the size of health and ammo kits so they don't clutter up the screen as much.

Next I'd like to do some work with the lab level, hopefully I'll complete it next patch.
