Blackberry Featured App

Blackberry App world Featured App

Great news, Rogues Lair has made it to being a ‘featured’ app on the Blackberry App world, US store. (As high as #5 for Games->Strategy). Many thanks to all who have downloaded it, and also for leaving really positive reviews.

The main focus in the coming weeks will be addressing issues and bugs that have been raised, mainly around the inventory and items.

Then more new features will be added, Cursed items being first on the list, (Thanks for the suggestion by Foxbreak). Also custom unique items with their own scripts to allow greater interaction and variety. (The aim is to make the game as deep as possible)

Wait. Version for j2me-phones will be ?

Paul Rowland said...

Will be a similar version, but look quite different as the characteristics of a Blackberry device have changed quite a bit since J2ME.

Nearly done rounding off the bugs, and will then look at updating the J2ME link with an updated version.

great game. just needs to have a few more updates. im at lvl 61 and everything repeates itself. items at lvl 50ish start repeating at level 1 again etc. at lvl 60all there is to fight is wizards and only items are potions. there are no armors after that.

Thank you for the feedback,

Just finishing of 1.1.3 which addresses some Inventory issues and bits and pieces. Then will add more content and re-balance for version 1.2

Interesting to know you've managed to get to that level, I must really suck at playing my own game.

Regards
Paul

Just uploaded 1.1.3 to App World, usually takes a couple or 3 days to get reviewed:

- Fixed bug that lost some items when saved.
- Equipped items, remain equipped after game load
- Added message if Inventory full
- Increased capacity of the Inventory
- Minor game re-balance (now slightly harder)
- All Enemies health increased slightly
- All weapons damage decreased slightly
- Rings and Amulets now drop slightly later in game
- New Enemies added, Grey Troll, Rock Troll, Hydra, Ogre

New version of Rogue's lair doesn't work on my Blackberry Bold 9930 or 9700! Help!

Paul Rowland said...

Hi Tom,

I'm very, very sorry about that, just seen you're email also.

I've just submitted an emergency patch release to BB App World, and have removed it from sale in the interim.

It didn't initially fail on my device, but based on your description have been able to re-create and fix it.

I'll put a post up with full details shortly, but in the meantime please accept my sincerest apologies.

Regards
Paul

Broken on my 9900 as well. Dl'd update 1.1.3(?) then I got a java.lang.NullPointerException error and it won't boot. Hope this is what the fix is for.

Paul Rowland said...

Will definitely fix the Null Pointer.

John said...

When should we expect this fix Paul?

Paul Rowland said...

Hi John, it's with RIM at the moment, I'm hoping real soon though.

John said...

Thanks Paul, got the update this morning, is working great, cheers

Found a minor bug, on lvl 2, I found 2 helmets. Ever time i equipped one, my armour count went down by 2. I ended up at -16

Paul Rowland said...

John, cursed items!!

Paul Rowland said...

..damn, not implemented that yet. Indeed is a bug, will have a look at that.
