FOR DLC OWNERS: Boring Editor v2.0.0 and the Workshop is now available!

Weapon skin guidelines thread

I have unlocked access to the new map editor and uploading maps to the Workshop! Please give it a try and let me know what you think. All I did was upload a build that unlocked the map editor so make sure your game is updated before you try to open it. Restarting Steam will usually kickstart updates.

The map editor is built into the game now, so simply launch v2.0.0 as normal and select "Boring Editor" from the main menu. The Boring Editor launch option on Steam will still only go to the old map editor.

There is no Steam Guide written yet but I will write one soon. To get started, you can try pressing F1 to display the hotkeys and see what you can do with

If you're not much of an artist and need tiles, you can download some of mine here:

Placing any PNG files into the "images" folder in the BoringManRewrite appdata folder will be loaded as tiles you can use. The appdata folder can be accessed by pressing windows key + R and entering "%localappdata%\BoringManRewrite"

I'm going to be busy for the next few weeks, so I will not be available much to answer questions or solve issues with the map editor, so please be patient.

I have also enabled uploading weapon skins to the workshop, simply go to the weapon skin creator and click the "Workshop" button in the upper left to upload your suggested skin.

You can checkbox "Show All" to make a sprite sheet of the current weapons instead of displaying a single weapon in the preview image.

I have already uploaded a weapon skin that I will use as DLC later here:

Want to get into the rewrite beta? You can if you own any of the DLCs below.

Thanks and have fun!

FOR DLC OWNERS: Boring Man v2.0.0 beta7 is now available!

I've done a lot of work on the map editor, however its not quite ready for public use yet. Later in the week I may enable the editor and uploading to Workshop, but I wanted to let some friends test the editor on their own one more time before then. I will make a post when I do so.

I've also enabled kills from XP past level 100, and additional XP from killing

General Changes
  • Added a bunch of content for the map editor, but it’s not quite ready yet.
  • Uploaded a new test map to the Workshop, featuring the new logic gate system
  • Enabled the Climb game mode, there are no climb maps yet though except for Workshop Test
  • You can now earn XP from kills past level 100, mutators must be off and you must play on a stock map
  • When quitting a server before the match ends, you will now only earn 50% of the time-based XP you got
  • Added the Laser Traps back to Dyson City
  • Sunglasses on players/enemies now have a ladder climbing visuals
  • Maximum XP now has a randomized ceiling cap

Survival Mode changes
  • Decreased the amount of spawned enemies when theres 3 players or less
  • Survival enemy AI will now harass players that are near the control point
  • All players now earn extra XP when a boss dies in Survival. You must be alive to get the XP, and mutators must be off and Survival must be played on a stock map.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed player’s current clan not checking for admin privileges on log in
  • Fixed pick up priorities when doing stuff with the Action key
  • Fixed not dying when you fall off the map
  • Fixed healing and poison grenades being too loud

Want to play the beta?

Thirsting for the new map editor? It's coming! You can gain access to the beta and have first dibs on uploading to the Workshop if you buy any of the DLCs below!! Beat the rush now or never!

Once you purchase the DLC, simply launch Boring Man from your Steam games list, and select the 3rd radio button down to launch 2.0.0

I'm excited!! Thanks for reading everyone.
