- point'n'click player movement
- added map bookmarks
- fixed scroll of faith cost bug
- added level display for wearable items
- various small improvements regarding memory allocations
- fixed doubleclick crash when saving game
Now player can be controlled with WASD to move and by clicking on place you want him to go. Your character DOES NOT search for optimal path. That's up to you as a player. Reason for this is that game is filled with narrow canyons, rocks, fallen trees etc which make pathfinding very difficult. This is not such problem for monsters but it is annoying when your player backtracks when you want him to go forward. AI pathfinding uses path grid with density optimized for creatures, not for player. Also there are many locations where pathfinding will not find most optimal route, for example when player jumps from low cliff, while AI pathfinding will find roundabout route.
Map is now interactive. We have added bookmarks feature to maps panel. Right click on the location on the map and choose "Add Bookmark". You will be able to write short bookmark on that location. To delete bookmark, right click on the bookmark icon and choose "Delete Bookmark". Note that bookmarks are invisible if you place them on area covered with fog of war.
We have fixed the cost of Scroll of Faith. There was bug displaying wrong price when buying scrolls thus making it possible to buy a lot of scrolls and cast many spells thus making game unbalanced.
Wearable items (armors, weapons, helmets, shields etc) now have level shown in tooltip. Also, items that can be crafted now show level of item. Note that when crafting such items, higher level items have much better chance to receive better magical bonuses. Lvl 1 items will at best have Poor or Pitiful prefix while lvl 8 or better items can be everything from Poor to Strong, Mighty and better.
We have fixed game crash that occurred during save game when player doubleclicked on 'Yes' button in confirmation window.
4th day after the release and the third patch v1.03 for Legends of Dawn is live on Steam!
- improved camera position so that when zooming towards player, camera moves slightly forward thus giving larger view area
- enemy missiles now hit walls, houses, barrels and other objects (that is everything that has collideable physics meshes) when fired toward the player, you can now hide from attacks behind the trees, pillars etc.
- player's spells and arrows also hit physics objects, you cannot shoot through walls anymore
- added autosave option that saves game every 10, 20 or 30 minutes (autosave can be disabled from Options panel)
- added QuickSave command to Options -> Controls that saves new save game with the single keystroke
- fixed bug with player sliding after the manual respawn if the player was moved before hitting the respawn key
- fixed key assignment bug that prevented custom key binding to work until Options panel was first activated
- fixed camera rotation bug that prevented camera rotations using keys
- added Regenerate command to Options -> Controls that manually respawns player at the last activated spawn point
- fixed combat translation in console window for non-english languages
Let us know if you've been experiencing any new issues or want to share suggestion that should be a priority for a fix. We are working on a patch 1.04. Details coming soon.
Unbelievable experience! Today was a whirlwind experience where we unfortunately made a series of moves that have angered Kickstarter backers, but also gave us the great success of the first two days of the sale that exceeded our expectations.
Let's address a few implemented improvements:
We have uploaded another patch to Steam server (v1.02). Regarding players getting stuck - we have added Regenerate action to Options -> Controls panel. Now you can configure a key that teleports you to the last respawn point. We have also fixed small translation bug in non-English languages.
The autosave feature is also implemented. You can choose a time interval for auto-saving (never, 10 minutes, 20 minutes or 30 minutes). Autosaved game always takes one slot in the save game list and new autosaves are overwritten over the old one.
We have also implemented a QuickSave action. A large number of players requested this feature so that they do not have to activate Options -> Save Game panel each time they want to save the game. QuickSave simply creates new save game called QuickSave each time you press the QuickSave key. You can bind this action to any key, just as you do with other actions.
Speaking of keys - we fixed two bugs regarding key configuration. The first bug was that custom key bindings did not work until player activated the Options panel for the first time. The second bug was that camera rotations using keys did not work. Both of these should work fine now.
Also fixed is sliding after manual respawn if player pressed respawn key while moving around.
Brown screen bug - for some reason, some configurations seem not to have NVidia physics system software or its latest version. Legends of Dawn uses NVidia PhysX to move all game objects. If PhysX libraries are not installed, game will start with black background. We are still investigating why this bug happens since PhysX should be installed with the game. In the meantime you can install the PhysX directly from NViadia site at
Don't forget to reboot your computer.
Next on our list are few assignments regarding movement. We plan to implement left+right mouse key movement forward, and then movement using point'n'click method - that player's character will move by clicking on the location he/she wishes to go. The camera will be improved too.
Some PC configurations don't perform well although in many cases weaker configurations when set up properly will work well. Streaming engine sits heavily on your computer resources so if the configuration is bloated or weak you'll experience low FPS. We'll continue to optimize the engine.
Huge thanks to all who try to offer information in constructive and inspired way. Big thanks also to our friend at Humble store and we are very sorry for every inconvenience you stumbled upon in trying to acquire your keys.
Humble Bundle is handling you Steam keys and they will provide with access to DRM Free version as soon as they set it up (we already sent them the master). Later they will deliver other digital goodies as we prepare them. Unfortunately some PayPal and KS backers still did not get keys so let 's go through steps once again:
a) go to the https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender
b) enter EXACTLY THE SAME email you backed with on Kickstarter or exact email used to donate with Paypal
c) in case you have problems please contact HumbleBundle support http://support.humblebundle.com/
d) if you still have problems contact us directly at email@example.com
As you possibly noticed, Steam has $15.99 one week promotional price for LOD, after that it will be 19.99. We thought that $15 promotional price for digital download for Kickstarter backers is appropriate. However publishers consistently suggested lower than planned retail price and we listened. In the light of new circumstances we would like to give some additional reward to our backers who helped us so much. We are still thinking what exactly that will be, but it will come in a form of additional download. Thank you once again for your help!
