Download MicroTaleBeta2.0 now!
INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOAD:
IMPORTANT: If you have already installed the previous MicroTale Beta YOU MUST uninstall it using the Control Panel before installing the new Beta! I apologize for lost map data, but too many changes were made to the Beta to keep any of the previous information. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
You are downloading a 26 MB .ZIP file called “MicroTaleBeta2.0.” Please specify a location (your Desktop, for example) when you download. After the download completes RIGHT CLICK on the .ZIP file and select the ”Extract All. . .” feature. You must then specify another location for where to extract the files. After extraction is complete open the MicroTaleBeta folder and find the file called “setup.” Double click and installation begins!
NOTE: You may have to download the XNA 4.0 Redistrubutable from Microsoft. The installer will handle this process for you!
FIXED BUGS AND ADDED FEATURES:
*Multitasking while playing MicroTale should now work!
*Map data now loads and saves without any problems. I’ve also added autosave.
*You can now run by holding down the W key.
*Sound effects have been added.
*I’ve added a range and you can no longer “fast mine” by building a weak tile and then continuing to hold down the left mouse button.
*You can now play in 1680×1050!
*Minor mispellings can currently be found throughout the in-game instructions and content
*The in-game instructions are not completely comprehensive
*Lower portions of the world lack special enemy types and look a bit crappy at times
