Version 1.4 is mostly just bug fixes, but there are are handful of UI improvements. I believe that a game's UI should be a straightforward and intuitive as possible and will continue to improve the UI where practical.

The intersting UI fixes are adding a distinction between open and closed doors to the auto map, improving the tool tip delay to pop up a bit faster since it's so important to get item and monster information, and cleaning up the world hero selection to remvoe some subtle issues with multiple parties on the same tile.

Change log:

  • Fix issues when exiting the Crystal Tower
  • Fix flanking issues and monster facing issues
  • Fix Level Up screen not accounting for Wizard powers
  • Fix Fae Queen skill not being learned
  • Fix dungeon generation bug with bad teleporters
  • Make recruiting UI a bit more easy to understand
  • Fix world interaction with multiple parties and none selected
  • Open and closed doors now show on map differently
  • Neutral damage resistance gives a chance to resist Stun
  • Fix tool tip in help menu
  • Reduce Might Cleave MP cost
  • Tweak Ghost Rat difficulty again
  • Make magic fountiains more common in the final dungeon
  • Reduce tool tip time
  • Fix more spelling mistakes
