Sneak Peek Maintenance

Finally get some time to work on the Sneak Peek. It seems like a lot of code accidentally carried over from my debug build for the public release of the demo, but a lot of players have been great in helping me find bugs that are far more difficult to locate.

I’ve gone through the simpler bugs, but I’ll be working on getting the engine nice and clean a bit longer. In the meantime, I’ll keep everyone updated on the Sneak Peek page that I just made, I’ll update the bug list once I have all the versions uploaded. There were a few bugs there were fixed for the public release, too, actually, like the green building not fading when you entered from the bottom, and the Snailshell making a bumping noise when it was up against a wall.

But what everyone really wants me to update is the pencil, right πŸ˜€ Well I will, on one condition, and I’ll tell y’all about that once I have the bugs fixed πŸ˜‰

    Well I haven’t updated it yet, heh. The new version has buttons that turn orange on mouse over in the menu, is the easiest way to tell.

    But, I just fixed freezing against a wall in the water, I’ll have to go through the rest later.

    Yeah, you guys really need to update “fpa.com” (buy that url btw) to host some actually interesting content! Right now it’s just your weblog πŸ˜›

    There’s tons of new trailers and you the site should of course have tons (4 – 6) feature trailers, alongside the full fledged trailer!

  3. Brad

    Yeah, been talking about that. You can probably see our new big push on the Facebook and Twitters, need to update the site, too.

    Buy it from Union and Employer Advocates? Haha.

    If it weren’t for the fact that I’m me (read: lazy) and VideoGuy is VideoGuy (read last note) this site would probably have a new theme by now! An Indie developer like you deserves something better than good ole K2 πŸ˜›

    Oh well, now when you have the money you can go hire some crazy web developer out there to do the job! (Because I seriously think you have some money nowadays)

    That’s sweet. I did notice you fixed some bugs for the public release (mainly the building not fading from below).

    I’m sure we’ll find more bugs for you to fix! Isn’t that right, guys?

    @Brad: Just a heads up on a few glitches that you may not know about yet that are still in there.

    If you hit your head, and then before you hit the ground, fall into the water. FPM will not start to swim, but stand at the bottom of the lake. if you continue to tap left or right, you can actually walk around the bottom of the lake floor.

    A similar thing happens when you do a wall slide into the water. Fpm just continues to wall slide instead of starting to swim.

    Also, the shallow water glitches are hardly fixed. You can still get massive air if you jump there, and you can still dive into the ground. (I’m playing this on Kong)

    One last thing, if you boost off a wall (underwater) and put your head above water before the boost runs out, as long as your head is above water (and you body isn’t out of water) Fpm will stay in his boost animation even though he isn’t moving at all.

    @Brad: When entering a door in multiplayer, can anyone go through the door and start a new level before the other one is finished, or do you have to wait for the other fancy pants men too?
    And when do you think you can talk about the achievements?

    Looks like BE FANCY has got the Pencil Addiction Fever (P.A.F), which makes him mad for the pencil in the fpa game for the next couple of days! It will hopefully pass over by then, or it will get even more serious, and if that happens, he will go on a rampage! 😯
    But the chance is luckily just 0,6 percent, so there’s nothing to worry about πŸ˜‰

    @Brad: New glitch: When hitting a spider in ball form in mid-air, the spider freezes and looks like he’s shocked… I have a picture of it too

    I don’t know if this glitch been metioned yet, but in the cave, I jumped and arrowdown-slid down the slippery hill and once I hit the water I was pretty much teleported to the middle of the pool.
