Beret 1.2.0

This will probably be the last release of Beret unless some major bug is discovered, so that I can spend my free time on my next project. Enjoy your bugfixes!

Here’s a complete change list:

  • General
    • Fixed a crash when a gravity switch is pushed into a wall through unorthodox means.
    • Made platform behavior more intuitive when a link block that the platform is linked to is destroyed.
    • Made platform interactions with force fields more intuitive. (Platforms can be pushed by force fields if the force field direction is orthogonal to the platform’s movement.)
    • Made platforms not be triggered by Beret clipping the platform’s edge during a jump.
    • Stopped Matterly from being killed by her own fragments.
    • Fixed turret bullets sometimes getting stuck on walls.
    • Fixed turret bullets sometimes being changed into white infectlings.
    • Reduced the limit on the number of sound effects that can be played at once.
  • Save Data
    • Made the game remember whether the range guide is on between sessions.
    • Fixed room clear data not being saved properly if you clear a room and then exit through the finish door.
    • Fixed room clear data being remembered across save files.
  • Controls
    • Added an option to toggle the status bar on the options screen; disabled Q to toggle the status bar.
    • Changed running controls – the default is now to hold shift to walk.
    • Added a controls screen that is accessible within levels.
  • Level Editor
    • Added instructions on the editor help menu for flipping objects.
    • Shortened ‘Press Q for help’ message in editor to ‘Press Q’ to stop the message from overlapping with door/sign coordinates.
    • Added confirmation dialogs for resetting a room or overwriting an existing room.
  • Level Design
    • Fixed green medallion time limits for levels 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9.
    • Level 1: Removed a sign in about running jumps, as it no longer applies under the new running controls.
    • Level 2: Moved the orange medallion piece at the top of the outside room slightly lower so it is not covered by the status bar.
    • Level 12: Removed an alternate solution for the orange medallion piece at the bottom of the room with the boss door involving stacking infectlings and bombs to reach the piece from below. Rationale: The solution is finicky to pull off and completely bypasses the puzzle.
    • Level 15: Removed an alternate solution for the white medallion involving quickly pulling blocks out of green switch blocks before they are destroyed. Rationale: The solution is very difficult to pull off and trivializes the lower section of the room.
    • Level 15: Removed an alternate solution in the room with the purple teleseekers involving bringing a sticky bomb through a force field while attached to a block. Rationale: The solution is difficult and finicky to pull off.
    • Level 18: Removed an alternate solution to the first room involving riding past the force field with the left gravity block. Rationale: The solution is annoying to pull off and bypasses the entire room.
    • Level 19: Separated the sign explaining platforms into two signs – one about the basics of platforms and one about the pumping mechanic specifically.
    • Level 20: Removed an alternate solution to the white medallion puzzle involving using a ghost block to ascend to the white medallion. Rationale: While tricky, the solution bypasses entire sections and misses the point of the puzzle.
    • Level 21: Replaced the horrible spike pit room with an equally evil but fairer room.
    • Level 21: Added a green switch block at the bottom-right corner of the switch block toggle room.

The majority of these bugs were found by players, so thank you, everyone who reported them on the forum or elsewhere!

Surprise, surprise, you can find Beret here!
