Gaslamp Games released a massive update for their indie game, Dungeons of Dredmor. This update includes a number of fixes and tweaks. It also adds an automatic save support as the game will now automatically save before going up and down stairs. The update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and you can view its entire changelog after the jump. Be warned though… it’s huge!
Dungeons of Dredmor Update Changelog:
-Fixed: crash that occurred when moving up stairs or down stairs, involving summoned pets -Fixed: shopkeepers doing odd things when picking up and dropping items after load/save, including crashing. -Fixed: crash when using invalid missile sprites, which probably never happens, but oh well. -Fixed: crash that just sort of happened randomly to a bunch of people, but it’s fixed now. -Fixed: merchandise flag not cleared when you go downstairs -Fixed: backwards conditional logic on ranged monster attacks means that monsters were not consistently casting spells; fixing this makes the Dungeon 95.2% nastier. -Fixed: Current Active Skill crossing over between new games -Fixed: small sconce appearing where a small sconce should not appear in the bath level -Fixed: knightly leap now operates in all correct chess positions. -Fixed: shops spilling out of their rooms. -Fixed: broken berserk description. -Fixed: negative resistances meant that a monster would always damage you for that amount -Fixed: ranged weapon resistances were operating using percentages, not flat values -Fixed: perception skill should not promise that you can see through walls when, in fact, it will not let you see through walls. -Fixed: doors with wrong orientation connecting rooms. -Fixed: Anvils of Krong spawning in hallways for no good reason -Fixed: crash when killing Brax and then going back to loot the store. -Fixed: auto-fill eats items if you have multiples. -Fixed: BBQs/minifridges now maintain state across saved games. -Fixed: Staff of fruit stops producing fruit after you use it on an Anvil of Krong. -Fixed: contents of Monster Zoo are still visible even after closing a door. -Fixed: Dread Collectors (and probably some other stuff) spawning in walls. -Tweaked values of Berserk skill. -Tweaked “Duck and Cover” armour values. -Tweaked Perception to be more useful. -Nerfed “Obvious Fireball.” Obviously. -Reduced Dread Collector Spawn Rate a notch. -Ammo recovery rates for thrown weaponry and crossbow bolts now much higher. -A lot more filthy, awful tweaking. -Permadeath now deletes your save game files on your death, as opposed to when you load the game. -Added, and clarified, the warning text on the “Just Quit” button. -Added toggle that reverses behaviour of CLICK and SHIFT-CLICK on items. -Added the Auto-Looter 9000, by BraxCo. -Added yet more warning text to the “Just Quit” button. -Added automatic save support; the game will now automatically save before going up and down stairs.
