GearBlocks Demo 0.4.6450
Well, at long last the new demo build is out!
My company is now incorporated, SmashHammer Games is born! I’m still waiting on the accountant to do his part of the process, hopefully this will be sorted soon, but I don’t think this should hold me back from moving forward with the game
in the meantime.
Bugs and memory leaks
I was actually ready to release the demo a couple of weeks ago, but I was doing some last minute testing, and noticed some performance slowdowns in certain situations (for example, when highlighting a part). I also noticed some memory leaks and several bugs that I hadn’t spotted before, not good!
So I decided to hold off releasing it, to fix these issues first. This ended up requiring fairly significant refactoring and reworking of some of the code, so took quite a while unfortunately. Oh well, at least it’s done now!
Saved file location
The saved file locations have changed (they’re no longer in game folder). The new locations are:-
- Saved games: %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalLowSmashHammer GamesGearBlocks DemoSavedGames
- Saved constructions: %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalLowSmashHammer GamesGearBlocks DemoSavedConstructions
Saved games and constructions from the previous build (0.4.6095) should still load, but you’ll need to copy them into these new locations.
