Castle Crashers Steam - First Update
Hi All,

My first post here so I'll just do a quick intro before getting to the super important stuff: My name is Megan, I work for The Behemoth, I like cats, Castle Crashers and candy (last one isn't really true but it started with a C)! Okay on to the real talk:

We are aware of issues that people have been posting, such as resolutions, lag, push to talk, and we're looking into all these issues. We are working on the first game update, which will include configuration for mic options On/Off or push to talk, removing Xbox error messages and we'll be making the intro screen skippable. We are doing what we can in a few steps at a time. We are looking into the other issues as well, but those will take more time to sort.

Everyone's issue is important to us. I'll be going through the posts on the Steam forums and answering the questions that I am able to answer. I'm hoping that when others come in looking for a solution, they can see if one has already been posted or being worked on and not have to start a new discussion.

If you feel that your support need is very specific to your settings or that you already tried all the solutions given in the forums and need further assistance, then I recommend going directly to our support team:
http://thebehemoth.com/support/ticket/

I'll be going through the posts everyday and I'll keep everyone connected with what's going on as I hear news. Thanks to all the continuous support from our fans! We'll do our best to support you as much as you do for us <3

The worst problem is the controller support. We dont have nothing fot it yet? On the store page it says "local co-op" but until now it is not true (as PC gamers, it is not expected for us to have 2 XBOX controllers)

First, I would like to say thanks for the work that was put into making the game, as well as getting it onto Steam. Most people don't understand the stress that comes with posting on an anonymous message board as a PR for a company, so thank you for braving these troubled waters for us. Pay little attention to the people on here that can't voice their opinions without spewing vitriol; there are many of us who love your games, and are also capable of voicing our constructive criticism in a civilized manner.

That being said, I think the lag in online games is the most pressing issue that should be attended to as soon as possible. I can deal with things like the Xbox messages and log-out screens because they are only aesthetically trivial, but the lag is making playing CC with others a challenge.

Anything you could do to make the game more playable online would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Yeah, the controller thing is pretty big. But, hey, any fixing is pretty great.

Glad that there's progress towards releasing a patch. Also I didn't get clear answers to some questions, so I figured I might as well ask one of the team irectly : Does x,x,x,y elemental infusion combo has visuals only for 4 basic knights and should Bi-Polar Bear attack aliens and scorpions (if he should - he's not aware of it )

About the key bindings, I would like it if the mouse buttons could be binded to actions. I'd like to set my attacks to my mouse buttons, but it seems impossible right now

Could you please work on getting the earlier DLCs? The lack of the earlier ones and the only avaliability of the current two is enough for me to inquire about it. Needless to say, has anyone checked to see if the old glitches still work? If they still do, Behemoth needs to work on it.

I believe both the Necromancer and King pack are included in the game, as well as the Alien.

Any word on those of us that are just getting black screens on start up can expect a fix?

Heya. We're definitely looking into these things, but they take a bit more time to work out. We're not doing only one update, we'll eventually have a few updates and we're trying to make sure we work on all the issues thoroughly.

Thanks for posting your comments!

Yes, the other DLC not listed on the store page are included in the game as unlockables. The Alien is unlocked after the Alien ship levels. The King is unlocked by beating the bat boss in insane mode. The Necromancer is unlocked by beating Industrial boss in insane mode.

The reported lag and other online issues is the big one for me (though I guess a black screen of doom would come first). Glad to see some action from you guys here!

Hi personally, I have a problem with frame skipping
when I play, the 5 first minutes are perfect but after, the game start to skip frame and it continue until it became unplayable. If I close the game and lauch it again, it is ok for the five first minutes, then it became slow again.

I have:
phenom II X4 840 3.2 GHz
6 Go of ram
Radeon HD 4870
windows 7 64 bits

I don't have problems with my other games and I overpass the minimum requirements so I think that there is a bug somewhere.

What resolution are you currently playing with?

Having communication with the player base already rockets Behemoth above the standards of many other game companies, it's good to see that. My question to you is will there ever be any support for controllers without x-input?

Communication is good. :)

From my understanding, we support Microsoft® Xbox 360 controller or Direct Input compatible controller. No plans for other controllers at this time. If you DO have a direct input controller that DOESN'T work then please let me know so we can look into that technical issue.
