Patch notes for the Gang Beasts 0.2.5b "unstable" alpha build

3rd July 2015

The 0.2.5b build released with this post is a bug fix patch for the recent 0.2.5 "unstable" alpha build, and the audio issue introduced in the 0.2.5a build.

The list of modifications and fixes made in this build is:

  • fixed an issue that made audio play +20db louder that maximum if volume was set to 100%
  • fixed stability issue when objects are spawned inside or collide with the support cables on the "elevator" stage (cables now snap instead of becoming erratic)
  • modified colliders on the handles of the elevator roof hatch to allow players to pass them (without stopping)
  • fixed audio samples on the "buoy", "elevators", "grind", "subway", "trucks", and "wheel" stage that could play when audio is muted
  • modified the doors of the "chute" stage to stop characters from passing through them
