Hi folks,

We just released an update for DemonCrawl that includes 6 new items, a save file repair system, and performance improvements related to GameMaker (the engine that DemonCrawl is made with.)

The save repair system can analyze your save files--including backups--to recover your progress in the event of data corruption. Such problems are rare but can occur for a variety of reasons, including hardware failure, app crashes, and hiccups in the cloud service. Until now, we have done our best to manually repair save files that players have sent to our support desk, but as our playerbase increases, so does our email load - we are at the point now where an automated solution is necessary.

We believe this new system will be able to handle the majority of save issues, but even when it can't, it will generate a log file with diagnostic information called "_repairs.txt" inside of your %localappdata% folder. If you're having issues with your save, you should consult this file for clues about the underlying cause.

On another note, we are making great progress toward the multiplayer Arena gamemode - we expect to have it ready in a matter of weeks. Until then, we will include any Arena changes in the stable patch notes so you can get a better sense of our development.
