Here are the major changes for Overgrowth alpha 196:
- Removed MSVC 2005 dependencies to fix "side by side configuration" errors
- Fixed all known unicode errors and removed unicode warning
- Fixed Angelscript caches not updating when include files are changed
- Fixed Awesomium keyboard input
- Removed last remaining ODE dependency
- Fixed shader preprocesser issue with baked imposters
- Fixed crash when loading a level that has no script
- Added main menu toggle to config file
- Added mouse sensitivity value to config file
- Progress on placeholder object spawn points and previews
- Completing a challenge level triggers level-end screen again
As you can see this update was mostly about fixing long-standing compatibility issues, as well as any bugs that might have been introduced during the extensive refactoring for alpha 195. This should clear the way for further gameplay progress!
