In an effort to help out with the development of this game Smile

Bug 1:

If I so happen to go into a room in the happy hen, the things that are not within my VOF are "blackened". All, except for the particles (musical notes) that are being generated by the happy house band brothers.

You can reproduce this bug by moving to the lower left room, and standing in its top-right corner. You will not be able to see any of the sprites, any of the tiles, but the particles are still visible.

Bug 2:

It is possible to move behind the fire place that's located in the happy hen. (The one behind Joanna). Makes for a great hiding spot, but I'd rather see it preventing me from moving behind it. Easy to reproduce; just move behind the fireplace Smile


Bug 3:

There were some random teleports while moving around. Might be a connection issue or something alike. Can't reproduce it, so I guess we can hold off on that one until I find more information Smile

Best,
Michael van Horen a.k.a Kiwi

Bug 1 & 2: Thanks, I'll fix them for the next alpha.

Bug 3: This is a side-effect of the client's movement prediction. If you have a lot of lag (or just a spike), your character may do a "jump" when the client discovers that it has predicted incorrectly.

Though I'm not going to "fix" this, there is a more serious bug related to the same problem, as Miklotov discovered a few days ago. In this alpha it is possible to abuse the prediction to move through obstacles (you don't actually move through them, but the client thinks you are on the other side).

I dont think that you should ever fix the No1 Bug, because being in that left room, you CAN hear the music coming from the band, and you can actually see that.. Wink

Hehe,

Interesting point Drac! Smile However, I think that if you break it down to the fundamentals (from a rendering perspective) and forget about the context (band playing music) for a while, then it would make sense if the particles weren't visible.

At some point in the game there will be some sort of magic involved, too - or so I hope! Imagine being in a small narrow cave, with multiple tunnels, of sorts, and all of a sudden explosions start popping up here and there in nearby tunnels. That would look odd, you don't see the tunnels, but you do see the explosions. I guess you could actually *hear* those too, but.. Oh dear I totally forget where I was going with my arguments Smile

Anyhow, the particles should not be visible if they're not in your VOF Wink

But again, that's a personal opinion.

Best,
