– picking up small keys, sound fx was not playing
– It was possible to escape the level in Wasp Valley. Collidermesh redone.
– Roundhousekick missed animation sometimes. Animationspeed was too low compared to the rotation. And so the animation did still play when the 360 degrees turn was finished. And then it doesn`t trigger the change animation command when you were fast enough with pressing the key.
– Fixed Missing reference exception when destroying Miss Thistle
– Spiderjail – Ironstamps were broken. They didn`t move up and down anymore.
– Spikey Castle, fixed missing audio source warning at the button.

Catched Bugs:

– Animations for Wasps were missing. Upgrade to Unity 4 issue again.
– Leaving the first level to Main Menu by the pause menu, then clicking at start again leads to a frozen first level. Timescale was still at zero.
-Levelselectionlevel – When using the gate to jump back to the main menu then the mouse pointer stayed hidden. Which was a bit problematic to click at the buttons then …
– Leaving the level by esc and the upcoming pause menu, and jumping to the main menu, then restarting the game leads to a freeze. Timescale was still at zero from the pause menu.
– Waterlibrary – missing lightmapping at the button to reposition the ball
– Honey winery – floating stones – the sinking time of the stones were frame dependand. Which means they were able to sink different fast at different pc`s. I´ve connected the corresponding timer with Time.deltaTime now.
– A colliderfragment from an experimental feature at the player which wasn`t completely removed made trouble here and there. Now it is removed.
– Wasp Valley, missing referenceparts at the Scarecrow AI scripts. Which caused fadeout issues at destroy.

– When paused and pressing the attack button then Alister did a roundhousekick when continuing. Time.deltaTime issue

10.2.2013 – Release note Version 0.5.0.2

Emergency release because of Big bad showstopper bug. The upgrade to Unity 4 has removed the animations of the gates in the spiderjail level. They didn`t open anymore. The level was unplayable. And you were trapped.


9.2.2013 – Release note Version 0.5.0.1

Some small changings and cleanups

New features

– Opening sound for the toilets added
– decreased the texture size of the billboarded grass from 512 to 128, and have set the Aniso level to 4 to avoid mipmapping artifacts at the borders
– Hide Mousepointer in the game
– Added a sound fx for swinging pendulum axe.
– Migration to Untiy 4
– Three savepoints instead of the current two savepoints.
– More in air control.
– Reactivated shooting.
– Redone all rotations of the character by code instead of animation.
– Redone animations of Esme

Catched Bugs

– Missing lightmapping first level at the huts
– grassborders showed Black line at the border of the grassborder texture. This was caused by Mipmapping. Increasing Aniso Level fixed it.
– Esc to go back to the starting screen doesn`t work – Fixed by adding a Pause/Resume/Quit menu that can be called by esc
– pressing shift still shoots fire. Shooting is removed. So this is a bug – Bugfix for the bugfix: shooting reactivated ….
– When dying the lives shows -1 – fixed. Lives are 1 based now, not 0 based.
– You can glitch behind the fence in the levelselection level – forgot to apply the correct colision mesh. Which made this glitch possible.
– Missing jumpingpads at the bridge in the wasp valley.
– Spooky Mansion, Song was not playing
– Spooky Mansion, one of the axes had a disabled sound source
– Spooky Mansion, visible gaps between Levelparts eliminated as good as possible
– Spooky mansion, missing collider, you can jump out of the level.
– Spooky mansion, wrong mapping at parts of the panel seam graphics.
– Display problem with number of books. The values goes above 100. But the display just displays 99 proper. I forgot to reset the number of books when returning to the levelselection level. Each level just has so and so much books. And every level is individual when collecting books. You start at 0 books in each level. The average bookcount will be displayed in a statistics at a later point.
– mixed up shadows for a few books in spikey castle
– Converting to Unity 4 has shot down the connection to the animation clips for the scarecrow
– jumping while walking backwards rotates the character into forward direction. Catching this one causes a redo of other components now.
– Kicking with alt doesn`t always work – This one was a tough one to catch, and has cost me several days now. But was so simple to solve. NEVER put GetKeyDown into fixedUpdate …
– dance animation problems. speed and length are mixed up. Caused by the rotation fix. I had to fix the fbx file for that, and grabbed the wrong file for it.
– When dying the hero stands up before the leveljump to the death screen.
– Spider didn`t play dead animation
– Esme didn`t play idle animation
– Explosion – Billboards of the explosion shows full transparent parts not so transparent. Caused by Update to Unity 4. Texture ettings were mixed up.


30.12.2012 – Initial Release was 0.5.0.0

No releasenote for this one. It`s the initial release. Project start was around May 2011

    Bug entdeckt, sehr zufällig:
    Welt: Spider Jail
    Ganz am Anfang, wenn man noch im Gefängnis ist.
    Ich bin direkt losgegangen um mir das Buch zu holen, da ist plötlich diese stachelkugel erschienen und hat mich erschlagen. Der Schalter wurde aber gleichzeitig auch aktiviert und es ertönte eine Art Öffnungsgeräusch. Nachdem ich am Startpunkt wiederbelebt wurde, war der Schalter noch aktiviert(gelb leuchtend) aber alle Türen waren verschlossen.
    Hab ich was falsch gemacht oder ist das ein Bug?

    Hui, das ist ein seltsamer Bug. Den hatte ich noch nie. Da werde ich mal zwei drei Augen drauf werfen.

    Vielen Dank für den Report. Ist somit auf der Bugliste 🙂
