I got some time set aside to work on some of the bugs, and I fixed 3 of them in this patch.
The Jeweled chests should no longer end up empty. That being said it was a savefile bug, so if you currently have a saved floor then that specific floor's jeweled chest may still be bugged... However this bug should not happen after generating a new floor. If this bug persists please let me know and I will continue working on it.
running talented abilities, after specing for them in battle, should no longer cause a crash.
Counter spell will no longer bug out the game when cast on a preping mob...
I am still here, and still trying to work on the game when I can... That being said it seems that using the gameplay thread is the best way to get my attention (seems to have 100% notification rate, where as the other threads seem to be hit or miss).
I will continue to do what I can, when I can for this game, and this community.
