Call for Alpha Testers / Developers

Post by Steve » Wed May 22, 2019 1:22 pm

The latest release of The Lost Colony ver 2.0 is the first major version posted in the last five years. The source code is now available via Github. (links at the top of this forum) Quite a lot of development and code cleanup occurred in 2015 and again in 2017 to update the game engine in a number of ways. This unfortunately created a significant number of new bugs and minor issues that are being addressed.

I am hoping that a few fans will be willing to go through the game again and report on the issues that they run into. A new issue tracker has been set up with short-term bugs and long-term goals and I have the time to personally address these in the next few weeks.

Please post any bug reports here, and if you are developer interested in obtaining access to the github site, please send me a note.

Initial issues found:

1. No music playing anywhere! Gotta have that music heh.

2. I miss the old main menu with the spinning 3D planet. I remember Jon saying it would be a chunk of work to get working in the new display though sadly.

3. Save game text is outside of box. I was running in 1080P.

4. Few issues with the 'you can't enter this department' box in that the middle line is slighly cropped.. and the ok button is sort of inside the box and under lapping the text instead of below it. I was running in 1080P.

5. Ship name is overlapping. I was running in 1080P.

Music is data\config.lua: AUDIO_MUSIC = set to true

I'll change this for 2.01

Fonts are a mess, sometimes fine, sometimes overlapping at different resolutions.
