Splody Update 8 - International Font Support

A step towards internationalization
This update adds international support to the font and to chat (through IME). Now you should be able to see the names of our Japanese friends who have been playing quite a bit of Splody recently!

This also opens the possibility of doing localization in a future update. Do you want to see Splody in your language? Contact me via info@dashingstrike.com if you would be interested in helping with the translation of Splody - there's not much text at all, mostly just the menus, so it wouldn't be much work.

There have been a few other little features and fixes since the last major update, here are the interesting ones:

Major Features and Fixes
  • Font support for most international (European and Asian) characters
  • Add IME support for entering these characters into chat/edit boxes
  • Update to new Discord invite link (https://discord.gg/dashingstrike)
  • Restored support for Windows XP
  • Fixed opening https links on Linux
  • Fixed copy/paste from chat

Note: The international font requires a GPU supporting 8K textures (common in GPUs made from 2006), so may not be available on particularly low-end systems. If this is actually a problem for anyone, let me know, we can find a workaround.

Hope you have a blast!

Splody Update 7 - Cross-platform Multiplayer With Console Version

PlayStation 4 version is now live!

The PlayStation 4 version launched a little while ago, and is fully multiplayer-compatible with the Steam version, so we've been having some good cross-platform battles recently! If you've got friends or family without Steam who you want to play against, have them pick up a copy from the PSN Store.

I've also been busy adding general features and making improvements, some of the more interesting ones are below.

Major Features and Fixes
  • New option: increase round time on "giant" mapsby an additional 30 seconds
  • New option: Flame Speed
  • New option: Flame Duration
  • Re-order Advanced Gameplay Options to have more interesting options at top
  • Add taunt sounds
  • Add some additional flair to the round victory/lose/draw screen
  • Add subtle fade transition to most state changes to make UI flow more smoothly
  • Startup speed optimizations
  • Support for some obscure gamepads that were not being recognized correctly
  • Make disconnecting from a server always instantaneous
  • Playing with 64 bots (A.K.A. "Screensaver Mode") now works better on all maps
  • Add delay on processing controller disconnects, allowing for them to be reconnected (within 5 seconds) without killing your player
  • Fix text entry on non-QWERTY keyboards
  • Fix framerate stutter on newer video cards/drivers when a round ends
  • Fix bug in online multiplayer where dead members of a winning team would not see the "Victory" text, despite their team winning
  • Fix achievement icons not showing on OSX
  • Fix amusing crash if you enter the last teleporter and there are no teleporters remaining (due to level closure) when you finish teleporting
  • A whole bunch of other little things, you can see them all in the ChangeLog.

Hope you have a blast!
