View Full Version : $PLACE_TOWER?
07/26/2009, 04:56 AM
After the update, I now notice that the preview bar that shows what shape of ships are coming in starts the game out reading $PLACE_TOWER. This looks suspiciously like a variable name being printed in place of its content, which, I imagine, probably should say something like "Place tower to begin" or somesuch.
By now, you likely know what took place.* The update we put on Steam only partially downloaded to players from Friday through Tuesday, and for some people they just lost audio, for other people the game didn't work at all.*
The fact that anything worked at all* is surprising since you had some files from one version of the game mixed with files from the latest version of the game.
Additionally, we did a couple of things we shouldn't have done - first we put out the update on a Friday - a true no-no that we should have avoided as we have in the past, but we were simply too confident that this update was benign and was going to be a positive experience.
Secondly, we at the last minute got the opportuntiy to show Defense Grid XBLA at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend and we were AFK for most of the time until Tuesday.
Two wrongs - don't release on Friday and then don't live offline for the days that follow.*
For those two things I greatly apologize on behalf of Hidden Path Entertainment.
Fortunately, the fix was quickly determined (people weren't getting all of the update) and remedied (full update now downloading) on Tuesday, and all should be good in the world now (including world peace I've been told).
Thanks so much for your patience and support through this.* We screwed up, but hopefully now you have a better game experience.
Defend the Cores!
