We planned to release 0.2.0 before January so we’re now a month behind schedule. But that’s alright, because this update brings a lot of new stuff.
There were some changes in the engine, but most of them won’t be visible until we make new maps. There is now an in-game chat (activated by pressing ‘t’) plus a lot of convenience changes and bug fixes. All the GUI you see during a game was also reworked (this includes new pickup icons, HUD and menus).

There’s really too much to mention, but you can check the full changelog in the downloads section as usual.
Enjoy!

Oh man, it has really changed a lot since the version I played last time. It's finally playable and enjoyable, I could at least get some kills ^^

Didn't find any bugs and from suggestions: add some cool music ;d

Keep up the good work guys!  Wink

Thanks Smiley We will be adding music later on, it will probably be one of the last things to do.

By the way, I got your message regarding Rune Masters, but I haven't had time to try it as I'm currently in the middle of an exam session, I hope it's OK if I hop in later on, in a week or so.

Here it comes...will edit add more later etc.

matches played: 32 (frag 10's)
Maps played = all
bots played = easy/medium/hard/insane
co op played = yes


Main menu/menus:
1. Have a bland feel to them feels like any type of car model or anything there would be great.
2. [music] lack of music, but obviously adding that in something you are already planning on doing as I did read =]
3. [sounds] The car repairing sounds on a quick loop felt annoying to listen to
4. I think car selection should be in match making or weapon selection, not tucked away in options.


Gameplay:

1. (HUD) pressing tab to check felt like a awkward solution... I would add a little bar showing mine vs enemies frags in the bottom somewhere. I think that'd be wonderful (such as...)

lllllllll (9/20) Pandara_RA!
lll (3/20) Other guy
l (1/20) etc etc

2.
I felt like I was pressing the down button as if I was throttling the gas to make a turn in a racing game, though backwards because the car was already moving. maybe make your car by default not moving, and map the up button to the gas =] I'd feel much more in control then.

3.
This may be on purpose, though I feel like I had no progression in combat. the enemy would spawn instantly and then have the clear advantage with weapons and health, in many car combat games there is a negative into positive advantage for the survivor, at first the victor would have less hp and weapons, but upon living longer and killing again with the disadvantage they would be able to roam the map while gathering bonus armor, weapons, kill streaks/money/exp etc etc. Although this game does have that slightly, the low max weapon storage and instant re-spawn time makes getting your health as well as just an even fight with special weapons very difficult.

Balance tier list (in order):
Turbo Good: Shotgun/rocket
Okay: Bolt Driver
Turbo bad: Mines

Shotgun: Just hits like a truck, and even when it doesn't it still hits hard enough that the next three shots from your single pickup are gonna hurt, in close areas in levels like caves every map the damage is just unavoidable, and if you brought rockets, the trade will always be in favor of the guy not hurting himself in the small area.

Rocket: just has a large hit box and flies pretty darn fast, hits very hard as well.

Bolt Driver: is a very sniper like weapon, little screen time, little hit box...but low damage makes it bad in long range fights and bad in close range fights compared to either rocket or shotgun.

Shock mines: are hands down the worst special weapon for the following reasons: They only last a few seconds (so it's very hard to lay a decent trap down with them). they do not arm themselves for at least a second or so, if someone is just behind you it drops and passes through them. (if they are far the mines are easy to avoid, if short they pass through, if sweet spotted the damage is less than the risk.) in my opinion I'd either make the mines last longer, or increase the damage to close 90% of health removal to reward the huge risk.

Basic Weapons tier list:
Top: Laser
Mid: Plasma
Bad: Machine Gun

Laser:
just sprays everywhere...and it does actually quite a bit of damage and you can spray it out for a good 6 seconds, in a game where every special just barely doesn't kill, and powerups are all over , the sidearm that is consistent and strong is a clear favorite

Plasma: It hits hard, but can only spray it for about 4-5 seconds, I was debating putting this at the top, but the large hit box of laser, and how much screen space it takes up, just puts it above in close quarter situations.

Machine gun:
What can I say it shoots for 3 seconds, does low damage, and has a tiny line style hit box...too bad it doesn't last on the field long, hitting cool down in a fight is suicidal so stuttering weapons like plasma, and laser will just outclass this in a straight fight most of the time.

Levels:

Please cut every corner in each map, it worked very well in hanger, and just feels less annoying, no more square edges in maps please! =]

Hanger: Favors shotgun over rocket, as you are likely in a small box and 1 dash from a big blast. I really wish there was a health station here, me and my friend aka my brother liked the map but the lack of health didn't match with how we were coming up with strategies against each other, Add health stations in every level with an option to turn on/off health satiation in each map please <3

Caves: Balanced for rocket/shotty, has caves for weapons, and an open zone for health. Bouncing off cave walls is really annoying though =]

Hives: same as hanger...but more map control*! Awesome...but more corners in the map make me sad. *by map control I mean you can actually just pick up most of the power ups and health stations if you get 2 kills up on someone giving you a decent advantage on thier spawn, but not enough to feel unfair.

Excavation: is just annoying with all it's edges, rounded edges would vastly improve this level, also there is a glitch with one of the powerups see in bugs

AI:
1. Gets stuck on walls often in caves (easy/medium/sometimes  on hard)

Bugs:
loading caves once produced this, was unplayable.
http://imgur.com/QfjQb

In excavation there is a floating powerup out of reach
http://imgur.com/8zfoV

changing resolution crashes the game, but on restart works fine.

Personal:
1. This is more preference, though I would love some customization points to put into things like weapons, armor, health and so on. Or a value to playing your game for a much more extended period of time by adding exp or money to killing cars online that I can bring home to a shop I could tweek my car a little with...even if it is just totally aesthetic only.

I'll start with that, and will update as I play more

WHOA! I'm impressed with the amount of testing you put into this Smiley
Let's go:

Main menu/menus:
1. Have a bland feel to them feels like any type of car model or anything there would be great.
2. [music] lack of music, but obviously adding that in something you are already planning on doing as I did read =]
3. [sounds] The car repairing sounds on a quick loop felt annoying to listen to
4. I think car selection should be in match making or weapon selection, not tucked away in options.


All the menus (aside from the menus that show up during a match) are currently place-holders.
The repair sound is actually on a 10-seconds loop, are you sure you mean repair?
We plan to do a separate menu for choosing your ship, with a short description, artwork for the pilot etc. kinda like in fighting games, would that work?


Gameplay:[/b]
1. (HUD) pressing tab to check felt like a awkward solution... I would add a little bar showing mine vs enemies frags in the bottom somewhere. I think that'd be wonderful (such as...)

Sure, we'll add something you could see in Quake or Unreal games, displaying your points vs the best scoring enemy.

2. I felt like I was pressing the down button as if I was throttling the gas to make a turn in a racing game, though backwards because the car was already moving. maybe make your car by default not moving, and map the up button to the gas =] I'd feel much more in control then.

We played around with different control schemes and decided that this is the most interesting, although it might be a little confusing at first.

3.[/b] This may be on purpose, though I feel like I had no progression in combat. the enemy would spawn instantly and then have the clear advantage with weapons and health, in many car combat games there is a negative into positive advantage for the survivor, at first the victor would have less hp and weapons, but upon living longer and killing again with the disadvantage they would be able to roam the map while gathering bonus armor, weapons, kill streaks/money/exp etc etc. Although this game does have that slightly, the low max weapon storage and instant re-spawn time makes getting your health as well as just an even fight with special weapons very difficult.

Putting a cooldown on respawning is a good idea, although the way we played you already have an advantage as the scoring player because you get at least a few seconds of healing and you can pick up the ammo, while the enemy respawn without his secondary weapon.

Balance tier list (in order):
Turbo Good: Shotgun/rocket
Okay: Bolt Driver
Turbo bad: Mines

This is a surprise :D Everyone playing the game before was saying the shotgun is the weakest weapon so we kept on buffing it until it was really strong, but people still didn't like it because you deal little damage at middle/long range. I see you are the guy who finally noticed how devastating it is when used right :D
From my experience the bolt driver can be also very powerful, the secret is to keep on shooting. It has a very high fire-rate, almost like the lasers, and if you hit your opponent once he will loose some of his momentum due to knockback making it easier to hit him again and again. This way you can frag a healthy opponent in 2 seconds by slightly adjusting your aiming after each shot.
As for the mines, we plan on adding a tripwire capability to them, so when you place two mines close to each other they will connect and if someone flies between them they both will detonate.

Basic Weapons tier list:
Top: Laser
Mid: Plasma
Bad: Machine Gun

Yeah, that's true, I'm considering either shortening the overheat of lasers or making the machinegun more powerful. Which you thing would be better?

Please cut every corner in each map, it worked very well in hanger, and just feels less annoying, no more square edges in maps please! =]

Hanger: Favors shotgun over rocket, as you are likely in a small box and 1 dash from a big blast. I really wish there was a health station here, me and my friend aka my brother liked the map but the lack of health didn't match with how we were coming up with strategies against each other, Add health stations in every level with an option to turn on/off health satiation in each map please <3

Caves: Balanced for rocket/shotty, has caves for weapons, and an open zone for health. Bouncing off cave walls is really annoying though =]

Hives: same as hanger...but more map control*! Awesome...but more corners in the map make me sad. *by map control I mean you can actually just pick up most of the power ups and health stations if you get 2 kills up on someone giving you a decent advantage on thier spawn, but not enough to feel unfair.

Excavation: is just annoying with all it's edges, rounded edges would vastly improve this level, also there is a glitch with one of the powerups see in bugs

This is great feedback Smiley Hangar not having health stations is just a temporary thing. We probably won't cut EVERY corner but we'll definitely cut more of them, especially on Excavation Site. I think making moving through a map more difficult is not necessarily always a bad thing Smiley For example we made Caves as a more 'advanced' map with all those difficult narrow corridors.

AI:
1. Gets stuck on walls often in caves (easy/medium/sometimes  on hard)

Yep, this is well known and I will be working on it.

Bugs:
loading caves once produced this, was unplayable.
http://imgur.com/QfjQb

In excavation there is a floating powerup out of reach
http://imgur.com/8zfoV

changing resolution crashes the game, but on restart works fine.

1. What happened before loading the Caves map? Was it your first match after starting the game? Were you hosting a game or connecting to it?
2. I always forget to remove this powerup even though I know it's there and it has been there for a few releases now Wink
3. This is a known bug, working on it.


Personal:
1. This is more preference, though I would love some customization points to put into things like weapons, armor, health and so on. Or a value to playing your game for a much more extended period of time by adding exp or money to killing cars online that I can bring home to a shop I could tweek my car a little with...even if it is just totally aesthetic only.

We are considering making every ship a little different, different speed, armor etc. Maybe we'll make some of them unlockable?

Thanks again for all this, best feedback I could wish for Smiley

When you played the game for about 2-3 hours you notice, maybe I just have a trained ear for that kinda thing. =P

Thats actually interesting, as I played for a longer bit of time it felt less out of my control like what you say, although having the alternative option tucked in the menu somewhere might not hurt...but also may hurt! as it changes the experience depending on someones default etc. Not my call =]

Quote

Oh for sure there was an advantage, I may just be used to larger swings in momentum, respawn timer is a must, as I just finish someone off right as my primary goes on cool down, then they pop up and have that large advantage...happened with my friend about 20 or so times =], this will fix it.

Quote
and if you hit your opponent once he will loose some of his momentum due to knockback making it easier to hit him again and again. This way you can frag a healthy opponent in 2 seconds by slightly adjusting your aiming after each shot.

I knew I forgot to add a major point to that opinion! I found out that by issuing a strafe command on left and right quickly back and forth permanently acts as a boost when coupled with your forward dash timed correctly, making me and my friend become wiggling speed demons regardless of getting hit, the momentum shift has a much lesser effect.

It's not the worst weapon at all, in my head it's right below rocket etc.

As for the mines I don't think the hit box size is not the issue, though that sounds like a fun idea anyways. it either needs to arm itself instantly, or deal more damage and last on the field slightly longer. Though thats just my opinion.

As for why dont people like the shotty? I feel like it just doesn't have a good recoil to the action, like from sound and visuals alone I feel like there is no KA POW! to hitting someone up close I actually thought it was worthless too...then I made my friend take a hit at mid/close range and saw that wow, that does a ton of damage actually! I just didnt' "feel" it when I hit them with it, maybe add a tiny tiny bit of knockback and add a nice overlapping sizzle sound for each acid ball hitting?

Quote
Yeah, that's true, I'm considering either shortening the overheat of lasers or making the machinegun more powerful. Which you thing would be better?

I'd make the machine just stronger, I like how it feels as a surgical weapon rather than a dependable one, it feels like landing most of a full chip doesn't net a kill, and stuttering the fire to avoid cooldown is just poor on the Mgun as it is a rapid fire style weapon.

1. What happened before loading the Caves map? Was it your first match after starting the game? Were you hosting a game or connecting to it?

The most info I can provide is that it was after I had played on caves twice already, and then backed out into the menu and tried playing it again with defualt settings, was very odd, and was unable to reproduce after trying a good 10 times =]
Quote

Sounds fantastic, adding a handful of unlockable cars from match making sounds really cool actually. =]

PS: message me when you get to your next version point, as I will pop back in and give another go at it =]

Huh, I'm not sure if I know what you mean, could you explain it in other words or maybe record a video?

As for the mines I don't think the hit box size is not the issue, though that sounds like a fun idea anyways. it either needs to arm itself instantly, or deal more damage and last on the field slightly longer. Though thats just my opinion.

We now had this idea that instead of connecting you mines with tripwire you would be able to shoot your mines with your primary weapon making them instantly go off in a much more powerful explosion. Kinda like the shockrifle worked in Unreal Tournament.

As for why dont people like the shotty? I feel like it just doesn't have a good recoil to the action, like from sound and visuals alone I feel like there is no KA POW! to hitting someone up close I actually thought it was worthless too...then I made my friend take a hit at mid/close range and saw that wow, that does a ton of damage actually!

Yeah, you're spot on. The shotgun need to feel much more powerful, I'll probably add knockback for both the shooter and the target.

PS: message me when you get to your next version point, as I will pop back in and give another go at it =]

I will surely do so Smiley

The beta 0.3.0 version is ready to download on our site: http://doubledude.com

The most important new features are:

  • A new weapon: Rebounder. The bullets bounce off walls (maximum of 2 bounces) and the damage triples with each rebound.
  • Many changes in the maps, Hive now looks completely different, Hangar has been reskinned (now named Scrapyard), Caves and Excavation has been seriously overhauled.
  • Chat commands, type ‘\help’ into the chat to see a list, most of those only work if you are the host.

Full changelog and links in the downloads section as usual:

On Hive, if you change the screen resolution/screen settings mid-game, the little egg-looking things turn into white-squarish things. I've been able to reproduce this on every attempt, playing on a x64 Win7 machine.
Also, I'd love to give multiplayer a try wih a friend of mine and report back to you, would I just have to give him my computer's IP and any port, or is a specific one needed, or what?

I'm really liking Hullfire so far, I started following it maybe a month or so ago. Keep up the great work!

Oh yeah, the game tries to connect on port 1234, so you should have this one open on the host side, we should have probably mentioned it somewhere. If you have the port open your friend just have to type you IP into the box and connect, It'd be great if you could try it Smiley
I'll look into the bug soon, I can reproduce it on my machine through Wine so it should be easy to fix, thanks!

My friend and I were able to play three games over twenty or so minutes after messing around with my router settings for a little bit, and it was great; there were no outstanding problems, no latency, nothing. We'll definitely play some more over the next week or so and I'll report back to you with anything that comes up, but we did notice a couple of things in this last session:

1. There seems to be some sort of issue with the plasma blaster at close range. When I was shooting the weapon while being shot by someone and both of us passed directly over one another, if I died I would end up killing myself instead of being killed by the opponent. I'm unsure if this is only in online multiplayer or something with the ship I was using or what (I think I was using the orange kind-of boxy one), but I'll try to reproduce it in single-player and online sessions in the future and record it with fraps so you can see what's going on.

2. There seems to be some sort of desynchronization under some set of specific circumstances when a match is won in online multiplayer. I won all three of our matches (mostly because I've been playing since last release), and every time this would happen to my friend, as described by him: he would still be able to move and shoot normally, but myself and all the bots would be spinning around in place with jets still on, as if only the left or right arrow key was being held. He didn't see any powerups, he said, he was able to shoot us but not damage us, and I'm not sure if he was able to interact with repair stations or not. When he held tab to open the scoreboard it still listed me as one kill under the score limit, and on my side I had the normal post match scoreboard screen. We went back in afterwards and tried to reproduce it, but weren't able to for whatever reason, so I can't say much more about it. We'll keep trying, and if it happens again I'll be sure to tell you about it and hopefully have some sort of video or image to help.

3. We liked the dual lasers and bolt driver the best. The bolt driver, we thought, had the best audio/visual effect to it, and the ability to stop an opponent almost dead in his/her tracks with one good hit is very, very useful in such a mobile game as Hullfire. The dual lasers are easier to hit with than the other primaries, and have a good audio/visual aesthetic. All the other weapons felt just about as effective, but didn't give as much feedback; we couldn't feel the impact of them. They all looked and sounded nice, though; it's mostly a nit-picky type of thing, like the game wouldn't really be any worse for it if everything stayed the same.

As a couple of final thoughts, the way the game looks and sounds is very, very awesome; the quality of all the menus and sound effects and fonts and graphics really, really show. Some things that would be cool to add in future releases would be a multiplayer lobby, so you can go straight into another match after one ends, medal or commendation-type notifications, like mulitkills and kill streaks and etc., and names for each of the ships as well as some type of visual to display how they are different (if the ships are different at all, I remember you talking about it a few posts up but I can't remember what was said as I type this). Anyways, I'm really enjoying what you guys are doing, keep up the great work! Hand Thumbs Up Right

It's awesome to hear you guys liked it Grin This is all great feedback, I'll respond to all issues:

1. There seems to be some sort of issue with the plasma blaster at close range. When I was shooting the weapon while being shot by someone and both of us passed directly over one another, if I died I would end up killing myself instead of being killed by the opponent.

I don't know if you noticed, but it is possible to kill yourself with your own plasma shot. The plasma blasts explode upon impact and deal splash damage. Maybe you got hit by your own splash?

2. There seems to be some sort of desynchronization under some set of specific circumstances when a match is won in online multiplayer. I won all three of our matches (mostly because I've been playing since last release), and every time this would happen to my friend, as described by him: he would still be able to move and shoot normally, but myself and all the bots would be spinning around in place with jets still on, as if only the left or right arrow key was being held.

We'll keep trying, and if it happens again I'll be sure to tell you about it and hopefully have some sort of video or image to help.

I'll certainly investigate, we usually don't test the online part enough before a release, and bugs like that slip in. Maybe I will be able to figure this one out just by looking at the code, you gave a very detailed description so that should help Smiley

3. We liked the dual lasers and bolt driver the best. The bolt driver, we thought, had the best audio/visual effect to it, and the ability to stop an opponent almost dead in his/her tracks with one good hit is very, very useful in such a mobile game as Hullfire.

They all looked and sounded nice, though; it's mostly a nit-picky type of thing, like the game wouldn't really be any worse for it if everything stayed the same.

Thanks, I'm particularly proud of the bolt driver so I'm very glad you liked it Grin One thing we'll be certainly improving upon in means of visual and audio feedback is the shotgun. I already added a recoil and a knockback so those should be in the next release. We also added some sparks flying out of explosions to make them more interesting.
If you have any ideas on how to improve the feedback of the weapons please share Smiley

As a couple of final thoughts, the way the game looks and sounds is very, very awesome; the quality of all the menus and sound effects and fonts and graphics really, really show. Some things that would be cool to add in future releases would be a multiplayer lobby, so you can go straight into another match after one ends, medal or commendation-type notifications, like mulitkills and kill streaks and etc., and names for each of the ships as well as some type of visual to display how they are different (if the ships are different at all, I remember you talking about it a few posts up but I can't remember what was said as I type this). Anyways, I'm really enjoying what you guys are doing, keep up the great work! Hand Thumbs Up Right

All the menus outside of the match itself (main menu, options etc) are actually still place holders, and we are currently working on them as they are our main goal for the next release.
The only difference between ships for now is their physical shape (but not hitbox against bullets, which is always circular), this might change in the future, but we'll probably keep it this way. Nonetheless one of the menus we'll be including in the next release is the character select menu, where each ship is given a name and a pilot and you can read the bio and see the artwork for each pilot as you choose your ship.
What exactly do you mean by a multiplayer lobby? Don't know if you know this, but after a match ends you should be able to restart the match or play again on a new map by issuing an appropriate chat command. You can see the list of chat commands by typing '\help' into the chat window.
We might add features like killstreaks, multikills and such as it's not much work, but we want to focus on more pressing matters first Smiley

Thanks for all the feedback! I hope you guys will enjoy the future releases and get some fun out of our game Smiley

It looks really pretty. Since I have no one to play with right now, I played against bots.
Even "easy" was hard, mostly because I found it hard to aim. Curiously, the more bots there was, the harder it got. Do they prefer to shoot the player?
Sometimes I got awful fps drops, mostly when there was a lot of bullets flying around and 3+ bots. I think it may be a bug, because my computer can't be that slow.

I also had it crash three times, randomly after getting killed.
