Small teaser + Wip patch notes for 3.0 ;)



We are working hard on the 3.0 for Hero Siege.

Currently we are re-writing the networking code and working on rest of the weapon attack animations etc. The Networking code re-write will feature the system where clients are no longer host dependent, everyone can go wherever in the game they please so if the host leaves a zone the clients wont longer follow the host.

What we have already done:

- Cleaned all the code in the game, removed around 10000 lines of useless code.
- Ported Hero Siege from GMS1 to GMS2
- Made loading and saving 10 times faster
- Made animations for every weapon in the game by hand, yes pixel art in this is kinda crappy since you cant just make a model and put it into a skeleton like in 3D
- Improved a boat load of things in the game art, sound and game play wise.



Here are the notes for what they are now, we will have a longer list closer to beta:

GENERAL
- Whole game engine re-programmed for better performance
- Max level lowered to 100
- All loot is now hand crafted, no more spell weapons with strength etc.
- Due to new loot statistics and hand crafting there is now way more variety in the game!
- Weapons now have types, and only specific classes can use specific types
- Removed Chest / Helm synergies from the game.
- You can now shoot 360 degrees, any direction you desire.
- Saving and Loading improved for faster speed.
- View Port for the game is now 1024x576 instead of 966x544

Content
- Weapons now show on your character! (This part took LONG!)
- Added 8 unique hand crafted dungeons for EACH ACT!
- Added 7 new runes

Balance
- Difficulties lowered to 3 (Normal, Nightmare, Hell)
- Enemies now scale based on Areas and difficulty, not player level
- Difficulties now only increase loot drop chance instead of quality
- iLevel is now capped, and items can be upgraded up to level 10 with satanic dust and rubies.
- Runes no longer have star levels, drop rates are much lower and upgrades cost more but are instant and have a 100% success rate
- Max rune level is now 6
- Classes no longer have stat synergies that dont work on them (STR classes wont have ENERGY, and wise versa)

Graphics
- All loot graphics have been re-made with a higher quality standard
- Added enemy death animations

Sound
- Soundwork in the game improved, added unique death sounds to all enemies and more!
- Added ambient & athmospheric sounds
- Added unique attack swing sounds to all weapons
- Tuned the overall sound levels, mixed by our new sound guy
- Lowered music sound levels

GMS 2 transition + complete re-writing of the game



New winds are blowing....

Hero Siege 3.0
We have transfered Hero Siege from Game Maker Studio to Game Maker Studio 2 and since we need to do quite the clean up we decided to do a really BIG clean up, so practically re-write the game again.

Over the years starting from being beginners in programming, making the game for 6 years and picking new skills and logical thinking the game has become a layered mess of new systems on top of old systems and newer systems on top of new systems. It's really hard to add content and fix bugs since many things are done in multiple places.

What can you expect from this cleanup?
- Better performance, higher FPS
- Getting rid of the multiplayer problems and bugs in the process. Since systems will be implemented better and smarter, the whole multiplayer code will be optimized for maximum performance.
- More frequent balancing which is now 100 times easier and faster to do since everything is managed by 1 script instead of 4-5 different scripts.
- Easier to add content such as new enemies, items etc.
- Faster work pace for us developers.


Sorry if the text is confusing, Its 7 AM and I still havent completely woken up yet. Anyways good things are coming! :) Cheers, and thank you for supporting the game!!!

Features we are working on, and that will be in future update:
- 360 direction attacking, we will get rid of the 4 direction combat.
- Bigger view scale to get rid of distorted pixels in 4K screens etc.
- Completely new item art and item system
- More things to craft!
- More exciting things... more later ;)


-Kudos, Elias
