Version 0.3.1a – 18 January, 2022

Thank you for continuing to submit bug reports and suggestions!

FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

Blood:
  • Improved layer ordering for blood splats, chest items, and doors.

    Tallowmere 2 – Blood splats on a door

    Tallowmere 2 – Treasure chests and blood
Damage:
  • Fixed issues with Elemental Spinner Traps, Flails, and Leaf Shield where position checks were not reset between room transitions. This caused improper collision sweeps during the first frame after a room became ready, causing creatures to receive damage incorrectly.
Keys:
  • White keys no longer warp inappropriately when dropped against a wall or door.
  • Improved interaction priorities when multiple keys are near each other while also near a door.
  • Fixed an issue where a key could respawn after loading a saved game with key being held then unlocking a door.
Online Co-op:
  • Improved handling if a room transition occurs while using the Demon Statue, Magic Mirror, or Weapon Rack.
  • Fixed a sync issue where the "Auto-equip Loot" option would apply to non-local players.
  • Added checks to resync if a player reconnects just as a chest is being looted or a door is being opened.
  • Added sound effect when resyncing.
Steam Leaderboards:
  • Removed pagination buttons for Nearby and Friends entries.
Weapons:
  • Improved hit detection for Leaf Shield and Stun Bombs.
  • Fixed an issue where Bow rotation would not reset after drinking a potion or if their owner became incapacitated.
  • Fixed an issue where weapons could be held at a weird angle after resuming a saved game.
  • Fixed issues where weapons remained visible while shield was raised or while holding a key.
Other fixes:
  • Handled an error if an audio clip fails to load.
  • Handled an error when attacking.
  • Improved handling if the Discord module fails to initialise.
  • Fixed an error when equipping a melee weapon.
  • Fixed an error with game states.
  • Fixed an error with the Demon Statue.
  • Fixed an error with the menus.
  • Fixed errors with damage-dealing methods.


Version 0.3.1 – 11 January, 2022

RULESET 0.3.1

Due to the following change, a new Ruleset 0.3.1 has been created, along with a new Steam Leaderboard for 0.3.1.

Pedestals:
  • Pedestals no longer spawn if all unique curses have been acquired.

Previously, once all curses had been acquired, pedestals would effectively grant free rewards without any curses attached, which was not intended.

Lady Tallowmere wishes you good luck on the new leaderboard.

GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS

Multishot:
  • Multishot now affects Lightning Orb and Storm Cloud.

    Tallowmere 2 – Lightning Orb + Multishot
  • Fixed an issue where Multishot was not affecting Boomerangs consistently if Multishot Chance was not 100%.

ONLINE CO-OP

Merchant:
  • Items in the Buy tab now show [Purchased] or [Sold Out] after a transaction happens.
  • If an item is purchased or sold, the item stays in the Buy tab, but becomes faded.
  • Items sold from players that the Merchant did not previously have are added elegantly without disrupting the current cursor position.

    Tallowmere 2 – Merchant online UI
Keys:
  • Identified and hopefully fixed an issue where extra keys could spawn client-side that were not able to be picked up.
  • Refactored how keys are managed internally.
  • Fixed an error that could occur when loading a room if a bad key had been spawned.
Game Over:
  • Scores for leaderboard submissions are now synced for all players in the party.
  • The randomly-chosen "You Have Died" message is now synced for all players.
Return to Tallowmere's Keep:

Any player can now initiate the "Return to Tallowmere's Keep" button action.

Upon one player initiating the action, all clients will start a 10-second countdown timer, with their buttons showing the countdown.

All clients will restart the game:

  • if all players press the button before the countdown ends, or
  • once the countdown reaches 0.

Other:
  • TCP is now used as a fallback connection type if UDP connections fail.
  • Servers now prevent new players from joining a game if the party died in the home room without starting the dungeon.
  • When reconnecting to a game, the reconnecting player now becomes the captain if the previous captain is offline.
  • Improved handling if a client disconnected during the game-over sequence, then reconnected.
  • Improved handling to ensure creatures die in their proper rooms.
  • Added checks to handle errors during corridor transitions.
  • Fixed an issue where Hold-to-attack would send too many attack commands after throwing a key.

OTHER FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

Menus:
  • Categories are now better at remembering what item you had selected previously, especially when browsing the Merchant or viewing your Inventory.
  • Added various sound effects.
  • Performance improvements.
Quick Swap:
  • Fixed an issue where you could not swap weapons if your equipped weapon was marked as junk.
Saved Games:
  • Improved compatibility for loading older save file versions.

  • Fixed an issue where player avatars were not updated after being downloaded.
LiteNetLib:

  • Added checks to handle errors when rescuing kittens.
  • Added checks to handle errors when reviving a player.
  • Fixed an error with the boomerang if its parent creature died while the boomerang was flying.

  • Handled an error with the Unity graphics engine.
