Here is Egoboo 2.8.2 beta release. I have packaged together the new datafiles and binary into an installer:
Download installer for Windows

This is a beta release so that any critical bugs can be uncovered. Various issues reported from previous release have been fixed and the module includes the new Spider dungeon module. For developers this release also includes the new script features and a basic (but buggy) implementation of A* pathfinding!

Detailed list of changes:
Version 2.8.2 BETA (04.03.2011)
- New Feature: New sidequest called 'Lair of the Spider Queen'! Unlock the quest in Zippy Town.

- Update: Various improvements to the EgoScript AI compiler.
- Update: Removed the limit for the number of messages each object can have.

I didn't know you have psychic powers too. :shock:

Seriously, there are three things that I've hoped for but never said aloud: wider camera zooming, animation crash bug and resistances as percents. Especially the camera thing because most modules I make tend to have places that are so high that they can't be seen. :P

Once upon a time, when unicorns roamed the earth...

My keyboard works when it wants to with this version, even when I bound the controls myself! And yet, it's a generic PS/2 keyboard, nothing special...

EDIT: For some reason, binding controls to my game controller and then switching back to the keyboard (re-binding ofc) fixed it...strange...

EDIT 2: In the Elf starter, attacking with the right claw when disguised as a Lumpkin makes the damage particle appear at the same spot as the left claw.

Bug me if you want to play a game.
