Hi all,

I just wanted to say I'm keeping track of all the comments. I'm focused on bug fixing at the moment. I really want to get those issues sorted for the players that have them.

I'll try my best to keep up with all the posts!

Hope you're all having fun. And thanks for all the support, it really is appreciated!

Happy shooting,
Steve

This is what we call a developer who cares for his fans. Keep up the good work, Starg.

Good work dev, loving the game!

I myself haven't had a single crash or anything game-breaking. Aside from screen-tearing at times (even with forced AA, but it mostly works, only once has it flickered half a second all black and then the screen-tearing returned.)

Well, WELL worth the price.

Though do you have any plans for co-op at a later time lower on the priority list?

AA wont stop screen-tearing it stops aliasing (hence anti-aliasing). V-Sync stops screen-tearing. Your graphics card may let your force v-sync (overriding the game settings).

I hope this helps.

Excellent game, played it non stop for 3 hours already and still loving it.

Only minor thing I would pick up on though, is that on long songs, you can get a lot of bombs,( 29 in the screenshot below :D ) and the counter for them is nearly half way across the screen.

Would it be possible to split them into say 5 or 6 columns across to help them not get in the way as much?

It should work when you and a friend are playing at the same time. You will get updates telling you wants going on at the bottom.

Have you played at the same time as a friend?

I've played at the same time as 3 friends and have only had news of my own playing. Additionally, when comparing achievements it shows everyone in your friends list so it's hard to find JUST the friends that own Beat Hazard when you have 200+ friends.

Can you add a Reset option when you Press Escape?

04-16-2010, 03:29 PM
One other suggestion for the ESC option:
Please add a volume control in that menu.


BTW: News works for me...

Leveling up--- I think its too easy to level. err, what i mean by that is its too fast in some spots and too slow in others, leveling at the very beginning seems to be just right but around the middle levels it is so easy to level up. i really dont want to hit Elite already XD Just my 2 cents, nothing really note worthy unless more ppl agree with me. Overall amazing game, i stared at my screen for hours half drunk last night, its trippy lol. I just hate those dam bosses and there laser beams of super ♥♥♥♥

I'm encountering a problem where I'm trying to switch between folders on my second hard drive and the game is sending an error saying it can't locate a disk, followed by a string of characters. Happens every time I switch, often multiple times per switch, and if abort is hit it freezes my computer entirely.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Starg: Are you doing anything about the screen tearing issue? Can you determine what's causing it?

Thanks for the amazing support all ready Starg.

You should get a green name by the way, much easier to see whos who.

yeah, leveling is so fast on the higher difficulties. 2-3hours of play and I am already elite14 :v

I don't mind, it would just be nice had there been a few more unique ranks to hit.

Otherwise, loving this game, just really needs OGG and FLAC support to be perfect

(and I guess .m4a for those itune rejects :P)

Figured out my problem. It's erroring because I don't have disks in my DVD drives, and it's trying to read those drives anyway.

That should be fixed, given I normally don't keep a disk in the drive when I'm not actively playing the game on it.

So the 40 min mixtape crashes my game, but it works fine for some.

Could the directory be too long for the game to handle?

Would be nice to have a random song option when you're picking the song to play. Maybe even a random song that you haven't beaten option...

I'm enjoying the game though. Great work!

A Vsync-enabling option on the Options menu! And I also would like to have FLAC support! Most of my song collection is in FLAC :)


It would be also nice to have Last.fm support, but that's not so important.


Great, awesome game! And great support! Keep up the good work :D

Any chance for a windowed mode so either play it on full screen or in a window?

Awesome game! It is very smart in detecting epic moments on a song.
One major suggestion though. AAC format file support. I know its probally been said before but a lot of my songs (and im sure im not the only one) are in AAC format.

Minor suggestion #1, perhaps you could have unlockable ships? Mabye have the ships with different stats like a fast but low life ship, slow ship with high firepower etc etc. Though a bunch of new skins for the existing ship would still be nice.
#2, it would be nice to compare scores for the same song on the leaderboards, kinda like audiosurf.

I'm going to add my support for the option to play FLAC files. My entire music collection is in that format.

Hey Steve, just wanted to pop in and say "Thanks for such an amazing game!" I love it so much, and its great stuff to show to my friends and just have a fun time listening to music and pwning spaceships! I even bought a copy for my best friend who's also an avid lover of music, keep up the great work <3

Obviously spoofed a song and made it incredibly long so he just collected bombs like candy.(which would explain his multiplier and score)

Well, you ARE playing a 26 and a half minute song...

Your problem isn't too many bombs, it's that you need to go up a level. Thanks for the pic though; I was wondering about those bombs.
