Lockdown Protocol 0.21.0 beta released
Lockdown Protocol has gone beta! This means that the game is feature-complete and from now on I will focus on fixing bugs and polishing existing features. The final version will likely be released in the first quarter of 2015.
Change list for this release is shorter than usual. I have made quite a lot of invisible changes under the hood, for example OIS library has been replaced with GLFW. The external display settings dialog has been removed and those settings can now be found in the in-game settings menu.
I made a new level background model to replace the one I quickly hacked together for the first alpha versions almost four years ago. Not a big change, but it somehow makes everything look prettier.
Here's full list of changes since 0.20.0 alpha release:
- New more detailed background model.
- Added some secret cheat codes.
- Added video mode settings in system settings menu and removed external configuration dialog.
- Removed network packet rate and decal count from settings menu.
- Added support for copy/paste in menus.
- Gamepad compatibility improvements.
- Fixed load screen status text updating.
- F2 key now releases input grab as workaround for cases where alt-tab does not work.
