Patched!

We have a new patch out addressing most of the bugs and issues we've been aware of.

Here's what's in it:

Balancing
  • In Arcade mode there is now more Wave variety when reaching Wave 50 and beyond. The game will draw from a larger Wave pool when reaching these high difficulties.
  • In Multiplayer, the Sling (Tractor Beam) is now limited to 2 seconds (instead of 5) before the ball switches to the opponent. This is to avoid abuse and keep the game pace high. It also the mitigates advantage players had of having the first shot in a new Wave containing a Powerup, where by abusing the Sling players could line up their shot perfectly and take the Powerup.

Bugs
  • Fixed ball losing Powershot on Oculus when touching the trigger immediately after the hit.
  • Fixed Oculus playspace center when chaperon is not setup.
  • Fixed Wrecking ball stuck in floor bug.
  • Fixed Nuke Powerup heat marker staying when game is over.
  • Fixed streaming camera that could be placed inside the wall.
  • Fixed Splash damage pellet scale bug.
  • Fixed problem playing read-only mp3 files.
  • Fixed a few UI bugs where certain menus would wrongly persist.
  • Fixed a bunch of other small bugs.

Other stuff
  • Added option to force SteamVR or Oculus through the config (VR SDK: force_openvr & force_oculusvr).
  • Added option to switch network port through config.

We still have one open bug concerning the Star rating given in Solo Insane stage Sets. For some players, 3 Stars are given even when not finishing the set in the required time.
If you have any information about this bug, please contact us here or on Discord.

That's it for now!

Patch 1.0.2

Since launch a few days ago, we've discovered a few bugs that slipped under our radar, hunted them down, and made them see the error of their ways.

  • Fixed bug where My Music would sometimes skip track or behave erratically.
  • Fixed a mistake where Arcade was disabled until completing a solo set.
  • Fixed bug where declining a found multiplayer match wouldn't actually decline it.
  • Optimized sun surface performance in Solo game over screen.
  • Fixed a few visual UI bugs in main menu.
  • Fixed main menu profile "RP earned this session" calculation.
  • Fixed bug where if an Oculus Home player had no player Avatar, game wouldn't sync with servers.
  • Made announcer say the name of taken Powerups in Zen mode.
  • Fixed bug where Splash Damage pellets wouldn't spiral.
  • Tweaked "Clutch Saves" statistic to include slightly less critical situations.
  • Fixed bug where sliders would remain visible after multiplayer round was over.
  • Fixed bug where blue opponent handle was red.

We fixed about a dozen additional tiny things that aren't worth noting.

Please let us know if you run into any bugs or issues!

“Impressive visuals and a heart-thumping soundtrack help you focus on the goal of grabbing level-clearing combos, and ultimately act as fun adjunct to what successfully adds up to an extremely solid gameplay experience. 8.8/10
Scott Hayden - Road to VR

“[Racket: Nx is] a game that amps all of your senses, has some of the best audio and graphics on the VR landscape, and makes your heart beat out of your chest”
VR Today Magazine

“It is, fundamentally, a game about hitting things with other things and not since Wii Tennis have I felt so excited about such a simple premise.”

About This Game

Racket: Nx is a new kind of game that challenges the limits of what you can do with a racket and ball in VR.

The game is played inside a giant glass dome, the walls of which light up with targets you must destroy with the ball. But this is no ordinary ball. Hit it with force and it will slam into the wall, rolling across it and bulldozing everything in its path. Use your racket's tractor beam to pull it back, or simply to line up your next shot exactly where you want it.



Targets appear in Waves, and your goal is to destroy them all before your energy runs out. But targets aren't the only thing in the arena.
Hitting Boosters and Downers will replenish or drain your energy. Powerups will change the game's physics, give the ball splash damage or nuke a chunk of the arena. And the arena walls themselves change from Wave to Wave, revealing bumpers akin to a pinball machine that kick the ball around and give it extra charge.

So be quick, accurate and smart.
Plan your shots well.
Learn to control the ball to perfection.


Features:


  • Two Single Player Modes - A Solo campaign with 20 handcrafted levels of increasing scope and difficulty to unlock and master, and an Arcade arena that features an infinite survival mode, playing harder and harder Waves - see how long you can survive!
  • Intense Multiplayer - Play PvP matches competitively against strangers, or invite your friends to unranked matches!
  • Nx Spatial Audio - Racket: Nx is the only VR game to use Waves Audio's Nx technology. This tech is the best of its kind in simulating positional audio, increasing immersion and spatial awareness.
  • Sick Original Soundtrack - We took some of the biggest names in Glitch, IDM and Psytrance, and put together a crazy OSD! Don't like that kind of music? Play your own playlist ingame!
  • Streaming Cameras and MR Support - The game offers extensive MR support (including LIV), and to make things more fun, you can turn on our automatic action cameras for your spectators to enjoy.
