LambdaRogue 1.6.1-X -- The Christmas Special released
« on: December 25, 2011, 08:23:43 PM »
Not much time, because I'll be on vacation until January 2nd, but I somehow managed to finish the christmas special: LambdaRogue 1.6.1-X.

Download (.zip archive for Windows/Linux/MacOS):

You may either download this patch, or wait for the next real update (1.6.2) in January, if you're not interested in the christmas quest.

Excerpt from the readme:

This is a very small update which includes mainly the following features:

INTERFACE: Text-mode does not crash anymore when trying to start the game on a  terminal with less than 80x25 characters. Instead, a message is shown, asking the user to resize the window and starting again.

BUG FIXES: Melee weapons with force effect now work correctly. Game over music plays correctly.

A SMALL SPECIAL QUEST which will be removed in 1.6.2: As every cycle, people in Herbstwelt are looking forward to Dionysa's cele  brations. The children are esp. happy, because Santa -- one of Dionysa's messengers -- always has some gifts for them. But this year, the celebrations are in danger: The Insulting Krice has hidden Santa's gear in his hideout. Will you be able to regain the complete set, therefore saving the celebrations? Talk to Santa (who's waiting in the Catacombs of Enoa) to start the quest. And get a spade. --> Really, this quest is just a little joke


Even if this is just a small update, savegames of 1.6.1 are NOT compatible with 1.6.1-X. This is due to the whole save system being a mess -- I will probably rewrite it entirely for update 1.6.2 or 1.6.3.

If you have a promising character in 1.6.1, first finish that game before installing the patch.
