Avatar Miner Paintball v1.2 has been approved, and you should update your game immediately! This is a maintenance update that focused on four issues:
- Match disconnections induced within AMP are now rare
- Code4 during gameplay fixed
- Gameplay quirks corrected (read below)
- Lost saves from v1.0 Recovered
Smaller, Frequent Updates
This is the second update since launch on the 21st of May, giving us an average of 12 days between updates. We’re working hard to make this pace even quicker, and get more updates out sooner, and make gameplay better with every revision. Looking back a few posts to our forecasts, we’re doing quite well.
Lost Saves are Back
The version v1.1 update corrected a typo in the save file system, that causes save files created in the initial release of AMP to become inaccessible. V1.1 recovers these save files, and puts them where they belong. When they are found, you are notified.
Avatar Miner Paintball v1.1 was approved, and became available on 31 / 05 / 2013, a few days ago. A change log is posted at the bottom of this post for those that prefer to read it online, instead of in-game.
AMP v1.1 has been successful in dealing with the many launch day issues it suffered from, but there some way to go before AMP is perfect. The most common issues we have reported by our customers are:
- Disconnections in matches over 8 people
- Code4 (Crash) errors on the stats window
- Zombie Survival is not available
We have been hard at work on the v1.2 update mentioned here, and have made changes to the release schedule of AMP. V1.2 will feature as a bug fix and content update as a priority, potentially splitting the Advanced Tutorials into the v1.3 update.
This means we can submit the update sooner.
Avatar Miner Paintball v1.1 has been submitted to peer review for Xbox 360! This update address a few key issues, and can be downloaded by clicking here.
- Crash bugs during gameplay are all fixed
- Disconnection issues between and during matches are fixed
- Gameplay quirks such as crouching while flying, loading bars not filling etc… are all fixed.
- Player Masks are now the correct colours
- Massive stutters during gameplay are removed, and the gameplay is buttery smooth.
- Hud is more visible
- You can swap teams mid-game. Continue reading
AMP launched approx. 48 hours ago, and the response from customers has been great. Everyone is absolutely stoked at the range and quantity of features, love the gameplay and homages to other great first person shooters. Of course there are some complaints and issues, and this is exactly what this post is about addressing.
Check out this great video from TheRedvsBlueGaming, which provides a tour of some of the features of AMP.
A.M.P is a First Person Shooter based on the best gameplay elements from the Call of Duty series combined with Halo series, set within a Block-Engine similar to the little known and mildly successful Minecraft!
A collection of 10 weapons, 13 default maps, and three game types make this an awesome addition to your Xbox Games collection. Buy it NOW for 80 MS Points ($1) for the first week before the price jumps to 240 ms points ($3).
Many of our maps pay tribute to the greatest first person shooters of all time, including Counterstrike, Halo 2, Call of Duty 4, Unreal Tournament and others! We also have original maps such as Branch Out, Hotel and many more.
BlockWorld v1.7 has been submitted for both Xbox 360 and the Windows Store for Windows 8! This update is a big one, dealing massive improvements to graphics, stability and content, that you will want to grab ASAP!
Improved Lighting and Shaders
The Hazzah Engine is making more and more use of shaders, to provide better looks for decreased performance demands. The results are impressive, and far more immersive. We’re working on the issues aliasing is causing, and have some performant smoothing on edges. So it’s good for all those low power devices out there. Swaying plant life also brings new life to a previously static world, which is a small change that makes and oddly large difference.
BlockWorld v1.6.1 passed for Windows 8, several days ago. This small update added nothing new, however it did correct two crash bugs. Check the store on your tablet, desktop or laptop for the notification, and download this update immediately.
We apologize for the inconvenience v1.6.0 may have caused our customers and fans.
A little while ago, we announced support for the greatest smartphone gadget ever announced, the Moga Controller. These fantastic devices pair up with you Windows Phone 8 or Android handsets, and let you play those top tier PC and Console quality games without the compromise of using a touchscreen.
Three controllers arrived at 2.0 Studios today, two pocket models, and the pro model courtesy of fine folk at Moga!
As you may already know, all our in development games support gamepads:
- BlockWorld for Windows 8
- BlockWorld for Xbox
This is a quick update, being submitted without 48 hours of the v1.6 update passing on Windows 8. This update fixes two similar crashes:
Fixed: Pressing Z alters the non-existent blur filter, causing a crash in gameplay.
Fixed: Pressing 8 alters the non-existent HD sky, causing a crash in gameplay.
It’s embarrassing that stuff this simple to cause could make it through, but the fix has already spent 24 hours in review at the time of this writing. In a few days, you won’t have to worry about bumping those keys.
Thanks for reading!
