Version: V0.9942
Build# 6551963

New Update is LIVE!

Update day!

I have finished a few new machines for One Eye'd Billie's, some fun shooting galleries and also some new achievements. And as always... as many bug fixes as possible.

ENJOY!

New Supporter Edition of the coin game is now available for $4.99 (Gold Watch, In game poster and other cosmetic items to help support The Coin Game.) Thank you for your support!

And now for the update.

Combo Craze.

It is a game of skill were you must stop the rotating line on the dot to crack the combination 50 times in a row. The increasing speed and rotating angles are a fun challenge to get just right. I really enjoy games at the arcade that are "mostly" skill based. They are also the easiest to code too as there are no algorithms to fandangle and tweak.

Popcorn Petes Pirate Plunder.

Everyone loves Popcorn Pete! This new machine is a "plinko" style ball drop game. Press the button to fire a canon ball from the "SS Popcorn" and land in a treasure chest of tickets. It features a translucent LCD screen overlaid on the cabinets glass to give cool celebration graphics and counting screens. There is a center target that has a increasing bonus to win. Try your luck on the Popcorn Pete's Pirate Plunder game and win a boat load of tickets!

Pile Up.

Pile Up is a stacking blocks kind of game. There is a left to right sliding handle on the front of the machine to move the base platform. When the blocks fall from the top you simply need to stack them up to the ticket winning lines. Seems easy right? Just wait until the stack gets a little taller... and then TIMBER!!!!

The new shooting galleries at One Eye'd Billie's has two sides. On the left is the "Fun" shooting gallery that will issue tickets for hitting the small targets near each "feature". The rifles use a laser light and use no real ammo. There is a spinning water wheel of chance and plenty more silly reactions to shoot at. You get a total of 15 shots for each round and there is no time limit.

Clay Pigeon Skeet Shoot

The Skeet Shoot on the right is a timed game of shooting skill with fun pellet guns and clay pigeons. You will get a specified amount of time and unlimited shots to hit as many targets as possible. For now all of the pigeons are the same value. If you hit more that 42 targets you get a 500 ticket bonus.

This is a kind of version 1.0 and I have plans to expand on this later in development.

EXTRAS:
Quickplay Mode

Added a Quickplay Mode. What is quickplay mode you ask? Quickplay Mode is a simple way to dip into the world quickly and just play the game that you want without venturing to the island and dodging bots and buses. It is just the chosen game in a empty gray room for now.

I have been working on multiplayer mode and need to work on each machine individually. I need to cycle through many machines quickly as I add features to them. Well until now, I didnt have all the machines in one place and needed to do just that for future development work. So I made a simple way for me to play each machine quickly and without having to load the entire island. So when I got done with the system the other day I thought to myself that maybe players would like a way to just play the games without all of the other stuff sometimes. So here it is. Quickplay mode.

For now you will start Quickplay Mode with $100. I think in the future I am going to make a menu that will allow the player to choose to start the mode with 5, 10, 25, 50 or 100 bucks. That way users can challenge a friend to see who gets more tickets with X amount of $. I may expand on this in the future but for now it is what it is. A single arcade machine in a room that should load a bit faster and get a little more FPS on some of the lower end computers.

Let me know what you all think.

Prize Loot Crates

I have added 20 fun loot crates around the island for the next update coming next week. A kind of challenge to get out in the great outdoors and explore! When you find one....click on it to open it. It will have 3 random prizes in them that are yours to keep.

These will be used in the future for other things and challenges and I wanted to get a little feedback on them.

OTHER CHANGE NOTES:
  • Added a (field of view) FOV slider to the main player camera. It adjusts from 45-90 degrees. The default FOV field is 70 degrees. The old game was always set to 70 degrees for reference. You can change it from the Options Menu. Under the Video settings. The game will auto save the setting.

  • Added 7 New Achievements. "Treasure Hunter" for finding the loot crates. They are in values of 5, 10 and 20 total Crates. One for playing a round of 18 holes in mini golf. One for Babysitting the bots one time. One for mowing Barry's Lawn and One for getting a trophy at the UFO Kart race.

  • Fixed hole #14 on the putt putt golf game. Somehow the mesh got screwed up and was not letting golfers get over the small bump in the front of the hole. It is now changed and "playable". It's still not completely finished. Sorry for the mix up.

  • Fixed some of the putt putt golf rocks that were missing colliders.

  • Fixed the "Big Spender" Achievement not awarding when spending over 10,000 tickets on one item. It now works at all arcades.

  • Increased the winning radius for the Octo Swirl game coin game. It was not awarding wins when the coin was clearly inside the winning circle. I turned the precision down a little bit to make it less strict.

  • Fixed a wrong Icon on the Inflatable Putter prize. Now shows the correct icon on that prize.

  • Added a plywood jump at the side of the carnival to get over the fence by the Bus stop. That way you dont have to walk all the way around to the front to enter.

  • Added a few "sand cubes" to the Treasure in The Sand game at Larrys Arcade. It should be possible to get a big win a little easier now.

  • Adjusted the colliders on the Machine next to Dunko as to not get the Warning form the interference system. When you would win more than one Dunko Duck it would fall into the machine next to it and set off a warning from Larry. He thinks you are sticking prizes into the machines and cheating. Some users lost some prizes because of it. It should not happen anymore.

  • Barrys HOT ITEMS will now reset each night when you go to sleep when you are in Survivor mode. When you are in Birthday mode it will reset after 1.5 hours of real time playing.

  • Attempted to fix the Minnion bot grabbing you and slamming you into walls. It was happening after you would shoot one and they would run away or during a celebration... Then if you interacted with them as they were running away, they would get "connected" to you and send you flying all over the place. I have set it up now that they will not run into you and it should stop the player from getting thrown around. Still looking for more feedback on them.

  • I adjusted the Shoot the Star game at the Carnival and made it only give 2 credits for a win now. It used to be 3. Its now 33 percent more costly.

  • Fixed the pinball extra game knock sticking in a loop.

  • Fixed the Wormhole music turning off upon inserting players card.

  • Increased the Health value of Pirate pizza to 25 Points and the Pirate Punch to 10 Health Points. They are now equal with a cooked microwave dinner.

  • You can now get the Rasta Banana Achievement at the carnival games if you win it there.

  • Added a Microwave to the Dollar Store so you can cook meals AFTER you purchase them. Meals will not work in the microwave until you have purchased them.

  • Moved the Time of Day slider and Auto Time ON OFF button to the Main Player HUD on the screen instead of the wrist watch screen in Birthday mode. This way you can change the time of day easier to get the lighting and feel that you want. I dont think many people saw it on the watch and this should help a little with the confusion. This only works and is available in Birthday mode as Survivor is a locked auto time and can only be paused.

Well... that about does it for this update. Time for me to get back to working on even newer stuff ː1Quarter1Playː

Thank you for all the support and wonderful reviews. Without you none of this would be possible. Have a wonderful weekend!
