Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Beta 2

February 6th, 2003 by Marv

Probably of one of my personal favorite games to play, Serious Sam: The First Encounter has been updated to Beta 2. Bugs that have been fixed in this release include the following.

- Rocket launcher reports ammunition correctly, instead of being stuck at 50 or 100. Fixes Bug #243.
- Mouse input now “grabs” correctly when going from full screen to windowed and back. Fixes Bug #382.
- Viewpoint shouldn’t “jump” when returning from console/menus/chat/etc anymore. Fixes Bug #282.
- Launcher script should respect symlinks better. Fixes Bug #280.
- Beta expirations updated for another month. Fixes Bug #361.

Pending bugs include “can’t kill last boss” and “fall through the floor” bugs are still there with work arounds stated in the README. You grab it VIA loki-update or download the following

    Will TuxGames be carrying this game once it’s out of beta?

    Anyone else have problems with the wheel? ie. It’s sensitivity feels way too low. I have to roll it atleast 4x as much either forward or backward just to cycle up or down my weapons.

    Uh, and who do you kick, when it fails to install? Just the bugzilla?
