Recently, a Beta Demo for Tales of Thyilos was released to the public so people can finally get a chance to be a part of this games development.
However, there have been some problems that have come up during that time and now.
Specifically, there was a big bug issue where the game may not go past the main menu. As soon as the problem arose, the issue has been rooted out and taken care of, and a fixed version is up and can be downloaded here.
This fixed version should run without error. It also includes an Alpha release of Thyilosian Lore, and the XP RTP that needs to be installed to make XP games like ToT run.
Also, note, the game still requires the controls to be customised to fit the setup shown in this image. We are still hoping to find a way that these controls will go across. Otherwise things will be remapped to the default, and we may need to sacrifice a function in the process due to limitations.
Another problem we’re discovering, is that XP games may not run on a Vista system (they will work on Win 7). This issue is due to Enterbrains own coding and setup, and we are going to work on a fix where the Beta Demo will be standalone, and hopefully work on Vista. The only issue is that this will make a larger Download; and originally we weren’t going to go through this trouble except for Full Demo releases, and the eventual full game. But we don’t want to leave people out, so we’re going to have to do it this way.
On a final, mostly unrelated note, my laptop, in which I use to do all my ToT related work, is pending on the arrival of a new Power Adaptor so it can function. So after today, I wont be able to amend any bugs and issues people bring up for a period of time (maybe a week). Hopefully it arrives soon!
More updates to come, hopefully soon.
