I'm actively working on version 1.0.1 of Banished, and there is now a beta branch for testing. You can opt into the Test beta version by right clicking on the game in your Steam library, select Properties, and then pick the BETAS tab. You can then switch to the Test version.
Any feedback on this test version is very much appreciated.
The major fix in the build is for save games that crash after a few minutes of play.
Here’s the full list of changes in the test build.
Fixed a bug causing save games to fail.
Fixed a crash in the music player.
Fixed a startup crash when a video card doesn't support depth sampled textures.
The startup menu scene no longer displays the last seen area.
Added a command line switch /dx9 to force the game into dx9 mode.
Added a command line switch /dx11 to force the game into dx11 mode.
Added a command line switch /windowed to force the game to start windowed instead of fullscreen.
