Beta Branch Update v1.2 (8/17/208)

Hello Thieves,

I know it has been a long time since the last update. We have not stopped development but are getting close to our final release. This update has two huge features that took most our time since the last update and since they are so big, may come with more bugs that need work. Since there is only so much 2-3 people can test we have decided to open the update in a separate BETA branch to help with testing. After a short time in the BETA branch we will push the update to the live public branch.

The first of this is the conversion from running off your computer's FPS to delta time. This in itself brings a lot of bug fixes with menus and different monitor's frequencies but also improves performance on lower end pc's. Please report all bugs that have anything to do with timing or frame count in order to help out.

The second big update is ONLINE CO-OP. We honestly had not planned on this but with the many comments that this game needed it we decided to incorporate it into Mini-Thief. Again, this is early stages and we have been testing for over a month but there is only so much a small staff can do so we are looking to the player-base to report any bugs so we can fix them before the push to the public branch. Online Co-op is only available for the Story Mode, so you will not be able to play Custom, Workshop maps or go to the pawn shop with anyone else.
