Hey Flap. Check your email Smiley

I've been wanting to improve the AI for a while. Unfortunately it's not a trivial thing to fix, because if it splits its forces too much then it will lose. So it needs to be smart about when it defends, and with how many ships. It is definitely possible to fix but it will take time, and right now I'm focused on getting the translations done! Maybe I'll have time to look at it later. Smiley

Happy New Year everyone, and apologies for the delay - I was on holiday in Thailand over the break.

That would be fantastic, thank you Flap Smiley

Atlan, thanks for sending me your translation, and apologies for not replying to it sooner. I haven't had the time to compare your version and the version in the game yet, but I will do so.

I've just now uploaded a beta of the new version to Steam, including the new languages (French, German, Spanish, and Russian). You can access it via Steam on the "betas" tab, and switch languages on the Options screen. If anyone would like to help me test the language support and doesn't have a Steam copy of the game, I can send you a Steam key or a non-Steam copy of the beta.

It's been a long time since the last patch, so I'm keen to get this one finished at last! There is a decent amount of work to do to get the localisation ready for release, unfortunately.

You should definitely make that game, Flap. Wink

In the new version, you can simply replace data/de/strings.txt and choose Deutsch in the Options, instead of having to replace data/english/strings.txt. Smiley

For sending strings.txt, I think email would be best, or you can send me a Private Message on this forum.

I will upload the full version beta within the week, so you can play it too. I just uploaded the demo first because it's easier. Smiley You have the game on Steam, right?

Here's the current work in progress, as a demo. Atlan, perhaps you could check the included German translation? I'd be very grateful for your help. If you'd like to contribute your translation as well, we could even combine the two translations into a better one.

This is a beta version, so it may contain bugs. Bug reports are welcome. Smiley

Hello Atlan. That's great! Thank you for doing that. I am still working on official translations for the game. I've had professional translations done for French, German, Spanish, and Russian. So far everything works, except some strings are too long and overlap the UI. I'm slowly fixing those cases.

It would be good to have native speakers check the translations, to make sure they're good quality, and contribute alternate translations in some cases. The professional translators are good at their job, but they haven't played the game to check if their translations make sense in context.

If anyone is interested, I might release a public beta soon, including better language support and other bug fixes.

Hi Atlan! Welcome! Smiley

I'm not working on a sequel at the moment, but if there is enough demand, who knows. Anything is possible. Wink

Nice thread Grin That upgrade trick is one of my favourite little loopholes.
9  Mayhem Intergalactic / Features & Bugs / Re: General Ideas Thread on: July 24, 2011, 12:02:03 pm
Heh. Smiley

Yes, that's an interesting way to play for sure. Galcon has presets for generating different kinds of games, which is a feature that would probably be worth copying, just to expose people to the range of experiences you get with different parameters. That would definitely be one such scenario.

It's always nice to discuss strategies, I'll look forward to your thoughts.
10  Mayhem Intergalactic / Features & Bugs / Re: General Ideas Thread on: July 23, 2011, 02:17:43 am
I know, right? Totally superior. Wink

I have a list of AI improvements I'd like to try out some day. I'll keep you posted if/when I get around to implementing them.
11  Mayhem Intergalactic / Features & Bugs / Re: External resolution adjustment? on: July 17, 2011, 12:04:17 am
You're welcome. Smiley

For future reference, settings are kept in %appdata%/MayhemIntergalactic/options.ini; deleting or editing that file would likely have done the trick as well.
12  Mayhem Intergalactic / Features & Bugs / Re: General Ideas Thread on: November 19, 2010, 09:20:07 am
Yep. The AI could definitely do with some love. Smiley
13  Mayhem Intergalactic / Features & Bugs / Re: General Ideas Thread on: November 13, 2010, 06:12:04 am
Hi Flap, welcome to the forum! Thanks for your thoughts.

There are some good ideas in there, definitely. As you said, it's unlikely that many new things will make it into the game, but who knows. Maybe one day! Smiley

I can exclusively reveal that I am, in fact, currently in the pre-production stage of an MMO. It is called Star Vapor. In addition to the game, I hope to develop the multi-property potential of this exciting new IP, starting with a spin-off line of merchandise called Star Vapor Wares.

Seriously though... I have no current plans for any sequels. Or MMOs. Smiley

Don't worry about it. The sales trickle is sufficient to pay for the site; and even if it wasn't, I'd keep the site up anyway.

Cheers!
15  Mayhem Intergalactic / General Mayhem / Re: Price on: August 26, 2010, 10:02:03 am
Yeah, Steam doesn't have the multi-copy discount. Bug Valve. Wink

I'm currently working at a larger game development studio, hence the admittedly-glacial pace of Inventive activity. Good luck with your platformer!
