0.9.23 tries to catch files that might crash the game early. A few bad HWPs have been floating around that could cause this.

* Any that have an old version of the Beach theme - beach is now an official theme and they are likely to mismatch.

* Hedgecraft - unfortunately the Hedgecraft HWP was badly packaged and overrides rubber globaly, instead of just in the mod.

Any lua script that modifies key images that could change the map like girder, rubber or theme objects needs to be packaged like this:
MAIN.HWP → script.lua, script.hwp

With the override graphics of the script.hwp kept safely tucked away.

That way script.hwp will only be loaded when script.lua is launched.

0.9.23 is released!

See Translations for details and/or talk to us in our chatroom.

Call for testing: 2nd alpha release for 0.9.23

Here's the second alpha (=preview) version of what will (hopefully) become version 0.9.23.

This is only an early preview version and subject to change!

Like for the first Alpha, we like to hear feedback, especially about any critical bugs (crashes, game doesn't work, etc.) and if the Downloadable Content works. If you want to help us, please test the major game features and post here if anything is broken.
Thanks for the feedback on the first Alpha! It turned out to be completely broken for most players, especially on Windows.

Aghh Hiding

These bugs (and countless others) should be fixed by now. We hope in the second Alpha you'll be able to actually see the new features.
