Have fun!

Here we go again!

So far it has been a truly epic 12 hours of Shotgun Frenzy topping the server list, so it was expected that a few bugs would pop up, one of the most noteable been the ‘Final Struggle’ bug. Never fear, a patch is right around the corner, with a few extra additions that have been specificity requested by members of the Skulltag community. They have been listed below:

  • Dispensers, turrets and landmines to be added to the Armory for marines to buy
  • Price and damage tweaks on overpowered weapons
  • Score system from v1.1 added back in for mid-game researching
  • Mouse sensitivity for Commander reduced
  • That annoying tip beep has been changed to something less annoying
  • Tips no longer appear for player related information if more than 2 players are playing
  • Bodycount message on death from v1.1 is back
  • More powerful Airstrikes and Ion Cannon strikes
  • Increase to Afrit health (CF03 boss battle)
  • Map detailing optimised for better performance
  • Boss battles optimised for better server performance, also not impossible to beat
  • Disappearing skybox resolved
  • Endgame countup on monster kills sped up
  • Turret spawning fixed
  • Players can no longer go outside SD02 and SF03
  • Mechs no longer send players skyrocketing into the sky

This will be released shortly. In the meantime, a huge thanks to Konar6 and the Grandvoid servers!

Stay tuned, the update will be released shortly…

Shotgun Frenzy v1.3 Released!

At long last! The full and complete 1.3 update of Shotgun Frenzy is now up and ready for downloading!

Expect to see more mirrors pop up in the near future.

This update to Shotgun Frenzy contains completely revamped code, new maps, game types, and weapons. There was also a ton of network rejigging, meaning better net performance. As usual, let us know if you find any bugs or unbalancing on the way and we’ll get right onto fixing it in a hot fix.
