Endless credits

Endless credits

Postby Gallaecio » 31 Jul 2014, 17:56

I’ve just finished the RC, and I was watching the credits to ensure that my translations were OK there (I had to make some strings shorter, but that was expected).

And I noticed that the credits screen never ends. When the credits finish, the music continues with a black background, and it does not end by itself (which is what I expected). It does not finish either when you press one of the regular keys (e.g. F or D), which is what I though next. So the only way to get back to the main menu is to use the game menu (Esc).

Is this on purpose? I do not have a strong opinion about it or anything, it just seemed a bit odd.

Yep it was done that way, but I think you're right, I'll change that to go back to the boot menu.

Congrats btw for reaching that point. Any impressions on the game balance?

Well, as I started that game several commits ago (before RC) it’s hard to judge the balance accurately. That said, as far as I could tell the balance was OK. Challenging, yet manageable.

In general, the game gave me a great impression. It was a nice experience. It feels like a finished game (something quite odd in FOSS games, by the way), with all details taken into account, and “done with love”.

Thank you Gallaecio. I sincerely think it's the nicest thing someone ever said on this game, and I didn't think you would have like it so much.
In fact, I was more expecting criticism (even constructive). ;)

Now as for me, I found several problems already, listed them and will try to deal with each ones in a finite way shortly. Thanks also for the translation update. :)
