WAH Update - Version 1.3.3

Rushing through 1.3.1 and 1.3.2, here comes version 1.3.3!

Summary:

Some changes based on recent feedback, making your hacking life easier and more enjoyable, all thanks to Tech-Support here at Marvellous Inc.!

Changelog:

Custom Levels hotfix
This update is a hotfix to avoid unexpected behavior when loading custom puzzles. We recommend not downloading and running any external puzzles from unknown sources until the next major update, when the custom level script will be complete and much safer.

We had bugs. We fixed bugs.
  • Fixed a slider bug on the settings tab.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing Escape during execution would instantly kill the robot.
  • Some other minor bug fixing that you probably wouldn't even notice.

Some shortcuts updates
  • Numpad Enter key support.
  • Escape key now closes email and popups.

Added more traits and robot messages
...and WAHnderful new bot names.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next major update and carry on.

Breakpoints, Custom Levels and Achievements - Version 1.3.0

Version 1.3.0 has been released!

Changelog:

Breakpoints
Now clicking on a line number will toggle breakpoints that will stop the code and greatly help debugging. You can even toggle them whilst the code is running!

ACHIEVEMENTS
This was a highly requested feature. We are still having some issues integrating our game with Steam API on all plataforms, but until then, we added in-game achievements! We are planning on adding more as time goes by, and will sync them with Steam's as soon as we get the integration up and running.

CUSTOM LEVELS!!
Okay, hear me out on this. We really wanted to integrate our game with Steam Workshop, but as noted above, we are having some issues. Until then, we already layed ground to run custom levels in-game. You'll have to create your own .lua level files and put them on a "custom" folder inside your save directory, and they show up in-game (in their own category on the puzzle tab)! But don't worry, we are working on some simpler scripting language to make creating levels way more accessible, and we'll create guides teaching you step-by-step how to create and play your own levels. But until then, feel free to snoop around our game files and used them to base your own levels :D (And don't forget to share them with us!)

U.I. fixes and overall improvements
This includes better highlights on current instruction, better quality overall and lots of tweaks to improve your programming experience.

Corrected typos
There were a lot of them. We hope they are gone. We hope.

General bugfixes and improvements
The usual. Please let us know if you encounter any nasty bugs out there in MarvInc.

Icon support for Windows and Mac OS X
We'll get there Unix, as soon as you stop giving us a headache.


Well, this is mostly it. We hope to get things integrated with Steam ASAP so we can do achievements and proper custom levels as intended, but we hope this will satisfy your needs until then. Also we have to thank the github community that have been active and helped with lots of issues we added to this update. You guys are awesome!!
ps:due to some mistakes in updating the game version, it should be 1.3.1, but since we forgot to update the in-game version text, lets leave it like that and next udpate will be 1.3.2 ;P

Happy level creation and carry on
