Virvius Update (08/29/21)


Log - 8/29/21

Notes: All the work went into bug fixes, the start Menu/Options, and rebuilding the enemy AI system. A lot has changed over the period of a month. The game is looking polished, with the options menu makes it even better and customizable, giving the player the opportunity to tweak player controls and preferences. The game will always boot the lowest game settings so if your PC is not the greatest then you can gradually set the settings, then on exit the game will save your preferences to a file. You can set a color scheme of your visor if using the visor UI, you can always switch back and forth to the classic/full screen as well. The game now boots up with a warning, ESRB and Enfenyx logo transitioning to the game. Enemy grunts are hooked up to the difficulty, they will attack more and do more damage to the player if on a harder difficulty. They run around now instead of just going after the player, their response when the player goes off grid will change allowing them to look for the player and lose interest after a bit of time.
