Beta Build 0.6.2A - preparing for Necroa
WARNING - Beta builds are not fully tested and should only be used by people who are ok with the near certainty of encountering bugs. If you just want to play the game - please wait until we release the Evolution formally.

Version 0.6.2A - This beta build makes a number of back end changes to the game to deter cheating on scores, as well as adding a number of minor bug fixes and enhancements.

If you want to help test it, right click on the game's name in your Library, select 'Properties' then the 'Betas' tab and then enter the code 'testbuildevolved' to get access.

Please test it so that the release of the Necroa Virus later this week goes smoothly and let me know if you find anything :)

I am particularly interested in making sure that the game plays as you would expect (e.g. one amusing bug we had was that dead people could be turned healthy when the cure went live).

Note - old game saves are incompatible - however, all your progress and unlocks will be kept still.

Note - this does not contain the Necroa Virus - wanting to test the rest of the game first

Thanks a lot

James

Merged topic - posts from old beta 0.6.2A
Sry I forgot to put this in the beta testing environment

BUG: After playing a game, presing escape from the main menu causes an error. When one presses escape from the main menu it pulls up the pause menu from in game. However, one cannot actually return to the main menu (it returns the user to the pause menu). Additionally, when one presses continue, it brings the player to an unplayable game.

Im thinking in C# her but if a switch is being used at all in game set up something like

bool menu=true;
ConsoleKey keyPressed;

keyPressed=Console.ReadKey(true).Key;
switch (keyPressed)
{
case ConsoleKey.Escape:
if(menu)
{}
else
PauseMeu();
....
}

another issue encountered in another part of the forum is that the user, cannot disable the newbie help tools.

Same for the Fungus.

I cannot get the beta to work. The necroa virus stays locked, saying "not available in current early access build".

BUG: Necroa Virus stays locked.
I installed the new beta and the necroa virus is still locked, saying it's not available in the current build. I can assure you I am using the newest beta build, aquired with the code.

I did do that. Plague inc updated. Necroa is still locked up. Do I have to beat Bio-Weapon again or something?
StrangerDanger Mar 25, 2014 @ 1:39pm 
yeah it doesnt work for me now either. saw the download go through so I thought i was good. sorry for being premature.
StrangerDanger Mar 25, 2014 @ 1:40pm 
Will say this is why they do these things. would suck on release day for necroa to still say its locked due to early access.
StrangerDanger Mar 25, 2014 @ 1:42pm 
Same, the comment i left about it working was in error.
Aconight Mar 25, 2014 @ 1:42pm 
I can confirm this. Just verified and restarted to make sure.
TheRealMe Mar 25, 2014 @ 1:45pm 
I also got this problem.
BUG: Necroa stays locked, and Necroa sidebar on other pathogens.
