Revenge of the Cats: Ethernet Beta 2

March 30th, 2011 by Crusader

Prototype 2 of Revenge of the Cats: Ethernet was recently released with the following changes:

  • Breaks backwards compatibility to older versions!
  • In-game player chat (implemented as uber-minimalist IRC client).
  • New weapons.
  • CATs can now fire a B.O.U.N.C.E. that reverses the momentum of nearby enemy CATs.
  • In Ethernet arenas, damaging enemies no longer restores a player’s health.
  • In Ethernet arenas, CATs are limited to carrying 2 weapons (not counting discs, grenades and B.O.U.N.C.E.).
  • Deflecting discs should now be easier/possible at higher latencies.
  • Render player trails to make it easier to gauge CATs’ velocities from a distance.
  • Increased minimum speed needed to suffer impact damage.
  • New default font & slightly fancier GUI.
  • Warnings on the HUD for low health / armor.
  • New etherboarding effects.
  • Bugfixes & all kinds of minor improvements.

    Protip: ait until I get a proper game together to show it off. Or, you could show proto 1.10 video for Beta2?
