As of the recent Beta patch HM+ will not work as expected unless you are extremely lucky
I have no plans to update the patch to work with this patch. I let my thread fall from the first page after bumping following the patch and there are already 4 pages of bug reports. This is too much for me to handle fixing by myself not to mention integrating my old fixes for issues that were never fixed.
Hello all, I recently got interested in this game due to Yahztee's review and bought it on steam just yesterday. The game is great, and I fully enjoyed every last bit of it. But that isn't why I am here, I am a veteran of GM since GM6 and I figured I could do some good. So far I've just hacked together two new scripts and one new object to allow the player to do some things not allowed in the default game. Here is my basic changelog:
Changelog is too big. See hotlinemiamiplus.html in the patch zip file or the online version at my personal site:
MiamiSound scripts fix most if not all sound related crashes.
Fixes to the surface code fixes "out of video memory errors" (unconfirmed)
MiamiErrors will ignore non-fatal errors in favor of smooth gameplay and log all others for better bug squashing.
Several cheats added (can be disabled in config)
General code cleanup
The entire game was ported from GM7 to GM8 as of patch 0.1.14 to improve stability all around.
Address a slew of bugs submitted across Steam Community and Gamefaqs
[Complete] Fix support for windowed mode to use the mouse properly
[Complete] Allow basic settings like different fullscreen resolution / vsync
Allow resetting of doors to default state after "unlock all doors" cheat.
Allow creation and loading of custom levels. (very long term)
My long-term goals are to fully understand the original author's implementation of various aspects of gameplay and eventually allow custom resources like weapons or enemies or just make minor gameplay tweaks the community wants. Naturally reading and understanding somebody else's code is difficult so its slow going right now. I am experienced in using diff and patch to create patch files so rest assured I will never release any copyrighted material.
Remember to view the included "Hotlinemiamiplus.html" file for installation instructions, changelogs, and other general information.
