Hi All!

 

A new update to the Spirit Animals Beta is now live! Here are a list of the major fixes/updates and a list of known issues with the build.

 

 

Fixes/Updates

 

- Included game saving notifications:
One of the main causes for the lost character data many users were experiencing was due to players exiting before the saving process was complete. We've now added a game saving notification on the screen whenever the game is saving data. You should make sure that you do not quit out of the game before this message has disappeared.

 

- Added 3 new hair styles: No Hair, Dreadlocks and Cornrows

 

- Fixed issue with Runner high score not saving properly

 

- Fixed bug that was causing some users names on forums to not display properly

 

- Fixed issue where game would not pause when in the settings menu during a boss fight

 

- Fixed bug that was causing players armor and weapons to not display in their room

 

- Fixed issue with Armor rating inaccuracies

 

- Fixed issue where stat bonuses from armor, weapons and talismans would not update the players overall stats.

 

- Fixed issue where merchant restock time was not updating properly

 

- Added feature where the effects of skills are displayed as text at the time they occur. For example: If you stun an enemy, the word Stunned! will appear over the enemies head.

 

- Various other minor bug fixes, typo errors and stability improvements.

 

 

KNOWN ISSUES:

 

- The Pet Bond Meter is still dropping to zero everytime you reenter your room. But we have found the error and it will be resolved in the next update.

 

 

Other issues still in progress

- ground appearing black / missing ground textures


- environment appearing black


- general unity stability issues

 

 


Thanks to everyone for your help! More updates to come soon!

Great! Btw, I have a question, there will be forty levels tying with the release of book 1. So will there be forty more levels coming by the time bk 2 releases? And so on till we have 280 levels? Or maybe 20 levels with each new book and therefore a total of 160 levels?

@ANALYZINGWIZARD7 We may increase the level cap in the future but it won't be released with each book. The levels get 10% harder to get each time, so it would take a long time to finish 280 levels!

 

In fact, I just went and did this calculation. Exponential numbers are crazy. If we extended the system to 280 levels, it would take you approximately 787,124,460,892.98 days. That's more than 2 billion years!

I'm very glad that you are fixing the blackness. It is probably the most annoying part of the game, other than the useless stairs in "Your Room".

We are going to be adding the ability to purchase multiple floors for your room, so the stairs will serve a purpose then!

Wow, I had no idea there were so many bugs! Anyway, glad ya fixed all the bugs even though I didn't know about any of them! :P

 

Also, um, this makes me sound like such a newbie, but are we able to change our hairstyles? If so, where?

@Katie - After you've selected your hairstyle for a character, you can't change it. This is definitely something that we'll think about doing in the future.

 

Who knows, maybe Olvan has a side business as a hair stylist? Okay, probably not that.

@Keith: When I was playing, and finished a quest, it said: "Saving game...Do not leave this game but feel free to do anything else." for the last ten minutes. Is there a bug with it?

@Kathleen

 

Sometimes it takes longer than others depending on your internet connection speed. But you shouldnt be afraid to do other things within the game while it says this, just dont exit the game. For example, if you finish a quest and it is saying Saving game . . . you can still go back to greenhaven and go to the merchant etc. You can even go on another quest. just dont click to a different part of the website, close your browser or go to a different website while it says this.

I have a question: in the Armory, what would take up the two blank weapons/armor spots in the upper left hand corner? I'd expect it was a helmet and something else. Thanks!

Well, it finally saved it...kind of. OK, it kept me at level 1 when I reached level 5, but I guess I can't complain. I was lucky to get it to work! It's awesome, btw, better the 39C or IR games! One thing though...how do you get tokens???

The saving notification shows up, but it takes forever. Therefore, when I open the main page, my status doesn't update.

@DawnBlizzard8

 

You can still do other things within the game while that is on screen, like go to the armory, merchant, your room or even go on another quest. You just arent supposed to leave the game entirely.

 

Can you try going to other places within the game before exiting and see if that helps?

I tried going to my room, the courtyard and the places there, but the saving notification is still there, so I suppose that it didn't really save properly...

@DawnBlizzard8

 

Currently the game is only uploaded one piece of information at a time (Character photo, game save, image of Room) and the certain ones are taking much longer than others. If you exit while the Saving game notification is on screen you run the risk of having your game save date not upload properly.

 

We are taking steps to resolve this. It seems like its taking a really long time for some peoples character photos and room images to save. Did you lose and character data? I can try to restore it for you.

I have some suggestions for spirit animals:

 

1.Spell check (On Summer,Weekends,and Spring/Winter break, I completley forget how to spell.) 

 

2.More of a selction of animals like  hawks,pigeons,owls,cheetahs,monkeys,cobras,grizzly/polar/black Bears... 

 

3.Being able to change the way that your charchter looks.

 

4. An arena! where you can chat, battle and friend players.

 

 Awesome site, by the way.
