Title: MM8BDM V5D - Released!
Post by: CutmanMike on December 01, 2018, 09:22:51 PM


Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch V5D is here! This version is mainly a bug fix/cleanup build to provide several improvements for players and modders before V6 development goes into full gear! It also includes several revamped weapons, maps and skins. We also added some new post-game dialogue to prepare you for V6! Check out the patch notes below for more information!

Change List:

GAMEPLAY CHANGES
________________

== PROTO BUSTER ==
Proto Buster, despite being routinely nerfed, is still an incredibly powerful and oppressive weapon. So we're making it take longer to charge up to warrant its fast and powerful projectile.
- Required Weapon Charge for Charged Shot: 24 > 36

== BASS BUSTER ==
Bass Buster is a powerful tool for creating pressure. It can feel overbearing, so we've added a mechanic that causes its bullet spread to become more erratic the longer you fire without stopping. A small delay after letting go of fire was added to eliminate potential abuse cases and further reduce pressure.
- Weapon Behavior: After firing several bullets in a row the weapon's random spread will increase up to a cap.
- Weapon Behavior: A 28 tic delay has been added upon letting go of fire.

== GYRO ATTACK ==
Gyro Attack is a weapon that has players of the community split on one specific mechanic of it. Its double hit allows it to deal double damage if timed precisely before hitting a player, making it a 2 Hit Kill in specific scenarios. We're reducing the damage on the split as a result.
- Weapon Behavior: Split Gyros will now give players protection from further Gyro Attacks for 2 tics.
-- Double Hit Damage: 54 > 40

== DIVE MISSILE ==
Dive Missile is oppressive, particularly on large maps like MM2AIR. This should help resolve a lot of the frustration that comes with fighting the weapon without making it worthless as an offensive tool and a check to mobility.
- Weapon Behavior: Dive Missile can find a target [at any time > only within the first 4 tics of its life]

== ICE WALL ==
We know at least one person will complain about this, but it was a strange mechanic that we didn't feel had a place in the game.
- Weapon Behavior: Ice Wall no longer clips to the top of walls upon being spawned.

== SKULL BARRIER ==
The rework put Skull Barrier in a much healthier spot than the potentially everlasting immortality, but it still feels a little too oppressive. As an attempt at taking it down a peg, it'll stay up for less time and take longer to put it up again. It's possible these changes aren't enough, and we may have to follow up again later.
- Skull Shield Duration: 175 tics > 130 tics (Roughly 10 seconds down to almost 8)
- Skull Barrier Cooldown: 70 > 80

== MEGA BALL ==
Mega Ball is probably the most awkward weapon to use as a weapon, so we've added a whole bunch of mechanics to help with that.
- Weapon Behavior: Mega Ball now copies the player's momentum as it is spawned. Holding fire will automatically fire the ball.
-- Altfire: Spawns Mega Ball with the same behavior as pre-5d versions.
- Initial Firing Delay: 9 Tics > 6 Tics
- Delay After Kick: 23 Tics > 26 Tics

== ROLLING CUTTER ==
"Rolling Cutter spawns a damager every tic and those damagers are rippers that can hit twice. Although this change seems small, it will reduce cases where you are brought to 0 HP instantly. Sweetspots will still kill you instantly, though."
- Projectile Damage: 12 > 10

== BLACK HOLE BOMB ==
Fun fact, Black Hole Bomb was tied with Hornet Chaser as the slowest projectile in the game, and one of the few that players can truly outrun.
- Projectile Speed: 10 > 12

== WATER BALLOON ==
Oops.
- Explosive Damage: 10 > 8
- Direct Hit Damage: 4 > 5
- Explosion Radius: 85 > 64

== TORNADO HOLD ==
- Tornadoes Spawned: 15 > 30
- Tornado Spawn Rate: Every 8 tics > Every 4 tics
- Tornado Damage: 20 > 10
- Tornado Vertical Speed: 20 > 40
- Tornado Lifting Speed: 20 > 40

== CONCRETE SHOT ==
- Vertical Thrust on Spawn: 0 > 10

== ARROW BUSTER ==
- Mid Shot Damage: 25 > 15
- Main Projectile Damage: 30 > 20
- Fragment Damage: 12 > 7
- Weapon Behavior: Traveling fragments no longer spend any time with NOINTERACTION on.

== WATER WAVE ==
- Projectile Gravity: x900 > x15
- Weapon Behavior: Water Wave can now travel up slopes.

== JEWEL SATELLITE ==
- Has a new firing sound effect.

== WIRE ADAPTOR ==
- Item Behavior: Wire Adaptor will now pull you directly to what you hit without the force of gravity getting in the way.

== MM8BDM_SV_NOBOTBLOCKLINES ==
"A new server variable to play around with in case you're playing with bots or scenarios where players are affected by Block Monster lines that eliminates the Block Monster lines used for keeping bots from swarming into a mosh pit in certain maps."
- Affected Maps: MM1ELE, MM1ICE, MM1OIL, MM1DW1, MM2QUI, MM3GEM, MM3SPA, MM4TOA, MM5GRA, MM6FLA, MM7BUR, MM7SPR, MMBAST, MMBCOL, MMBBUR, MMBKIN, MMBDW1, MMWTDW1, MM9SPL

So, from what I gathered, V5d seems to screw up some people, me included. I've had a buddy tell me he keeps getting the Doom transition animation, another had problems naming himself past a certain amount of letters and as for I...the window for the game just said "screw you, I'm gonna be misplaced and abnormaly sized, get used to it, LUL". I am not happy.  :mad:
