Issues:
The music on the game over screen glitches.

Every time the word "less" is used to describe number of heads it should be "fewer".

Low fps in isometric mode as posted about by someone else. (confirming it). 10-12 fps using SDL2, 30 something using opengl.

Also it doesn't save settings, music volume, animation speed, etc... resets to default each game start

Mine saves the settings (at least for tile type and NotEye stuff). Not sure why though.

Chlorum: It should save settings. In the Ctrl+M menu, does it say that configuration is saved upon exit (option "e")? Is the configuration saved when you save it manually (ctrl+M s)? Anything suspicious in the file hydra.log (in Hydra Slayer's directory)?

Thanks for the reports! An update (17.0a, not yet for OSX) fixes the less/fewer thing, some musical glitches, and the incorrect compilation of the Curses version (as mentioned in the other thread). (Isometric mode is probably harder to fix...)

Thanks for the fixes.

The less/fewer thing isn't as easy as you think. Just wondering if you are a native English speaker, #16.

Yes, I am a native English speaker and the less/fewer thing is pretty easy.

I believe the 'Master of Seeds' achievement is firing incorrectly, as it popped for me on using a seed. I had 14 in my backpack (perhaps 13 after use, I'm not sure). I did have the mushroom staff earlier in my run should that have made a difference, though I never totalled 50 in sum of used seeds and inventory collection.

I am not a native speaker myself, so there might be more errors like this...

Version 17.0b:

- the option to turn the mouse tooltips off is now working correctly (previously mouse did not work at all if the mouse tooltips were off)
- the crash bug reported by |G|Head in the other head should be fixed ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/432380/discussions/0/392184522713770904/ )
- the player name is no longer given in the local scoreboard if it equals the character name (i.e., you have not named your character)
- made the descriptions of several achievements more clear (the 'Master of Seeds' should be received for having 50+ active seeds at once -- drinking a spore potion usually gives you 7; also, for the "Master of Growth" you need to give 10000 heads at once, and "win the small game" is clarified)
Bloodysetsail Mar 29, 2016 @ 6:52am 
Thanks for the clarification, but I still reckon "Master of Growth" is working differently to the description: I had no other mushroom potion active when I consumed the one that triggered it. It would seem about right that it was the eighth that I'd used during the run, so it could be that the game isn't taking into account the potions deactivating?

Also, I reached and killed the first boss playing the Echidna without drinking a Power Juice, and "Power is for the Weak" didn't trigger. I see it's worked for others, though. Perhaps the game is confusing the Echidna for the Titan and blocking it?

I'm kicking myself for not previously playing the free version of HS at the time I fell in love with HyperRogue - the fun I've missed out on! Making up for it now, though. Brilliant game, thank you! :)
zeno  [developer] Mar 29, 2016 @ 7:27am 
Thank you for playing, too! :)

If you still have access to your savefiles: what are the contents (if any) of the "Potions of Power Juice consistently ignored" and "max power of Mushroom Spores at once" lines in your character log file? (This is the file "user/hydralog.txt" -- to create it, load the game, save, and quit)

I have:

59 max power of Mushroom Spores at once

but nothing matching the former.

Potion of Power Juice (7/7)

is the only line with Power Juice

I'm still on the same run where these both 'occured', using my first power juice level 16 or so, I think? I had 2 in my inventory before* I used it and have 1 now. Just cleared level 36.

*Edited for clarification

Oh, my. Sorry! I've made a hash of this! I've mistaken Power Juice for Life Potion. Ignore me!

> 59 max power of Mushroom Spores at once

Maybe you have received those 59 seeds by collecting mushrooms with the mushroom staff? In that case, the game would grant the achievement on drinking the potion (which is a bug, it should be granted right away when you collected them).

> Potion of Power Juice (7/7)

> I'm still on the same run where these both 'occured', using my first power juice level 16 or so, I think? I had 2 in my inventory before* I used it and have 1 now. Just cleared level 36.

What you are saying is inconsistent with the line above (which says that you have found and used 7 potions of Power Juice, and thus you have 9 arms by now), item distribution (you should indeed find about 7 potions of Power Juice by now) and game balance (reaching Level 36 as an Echidna with just one Power Juice sounds impossible). Aren't you confusing Power Juice and Life?

(I see that the achievement counts only the Power Juice you have picked up and not used; if you didn't even pick up the first Power Juice, it does not count -- I have clarified it in the Steam description, will edit the in-game text in the next patch)
Bloodysetsail Mar 29, 2016 @ 8:34am 
I only collected to a total of 14 seeds before I ditched the staff. And yes, I just realised my mistake with the Power Juice and posted above you, but not before wasting your time. Really sorry. Makes me think I'm probably wrong about the mushrooms as well. Heh.
