New beta for v0.8.1 is available now!

Post by Nut »

Hello fellow adventurers,

it took a while - much longer than we planned - but it was worth the wait:
  • We have a big update with 71 new maps and 6 new quests for you!
  • 3 Additions from Guro-meditation-No42:
    • Kill count summed up for monsters with same name (a minor irritation)
    • Show kills of monsters in monster stat view (often requested)
    • Controller support (not yet tested)
  • Also we modernized the engine (Many thanks to OMGeeky), so that you can now use the current Android Studio version to create the APK.
    This will be easier for new developers, and it should enable F-Droid to publish Andor's Trail again!
Enough reason to start a new release number: v0.8


There is a big new area and a new city called Sullengard to the southeast - follow the Duleian road, you can't miss it. But beware, the beasts are really dangerous!! Don't venture there too early or you'll find yourself waking up in a bed more often than you want...

On your way to Sullengard you may find two quests
  • "Hunting the hunter"
  • "Getting home on time"
Look for these two quests in Sullengard:
  • "Pond safety"
  • "Recovering stolen property"
The following two quests are found elsewhere:
  • "Beer Bootlegging" starts at the Foaming flask
  • "Another ruthless Crackshot" not only sounds like thieves affairs, so ask at the Guild.

I won't tell more about the quests, I trust you to find out yourself - it's more fun after all.


In good tradition we first publish a beta here in the forum.
What do you think of the new parts? What is good and what is not so good? Can you play properly with a console?
Of course let us know if you find any errors or inconsistencies (preferably with a screenshot).


Keep in mind that savegames of a beta version will not work later in any product version!
The beta is a separate APK now, so you can have both (beta and product version) parallel in your device. New Android versions will keep the savegames of beta and prod.version separate too.


Here now is the link to v0.8.1 beta version: https://andorstrail.com/static/AndorsTr ... .1beta.apk
As always: Best make a backup of your savegames first to be sure.

Thx for your patience - have fun with the beta!

Yaaayyyy!!! Downloading right away!! You guys rock 🙏


EDIT:


I am noticing frequent screen tearing. It happens on random occasions and quite a number of times than previous versions.

No change in Settings. It is at default only. Using the same phone which I used to play previous versions. Though my android version is 9

Like a split second flickering with graphical glitch. It's not problematic but the occurrence is quite a lot. It used to happen in prev versions but was very rare.

Are there certain maps where you see this more often?
Where would you see this in the old version?
