Items[edit | edit source]

  • Cocaine is now known as Sugar, and Steroids are now known as Muscly Pills. These were the only real-world drug references in the game (except for cigarettes/nicotine, which is bad for you in the game), and I decided to replace these due to A. Parents finding these references a little jarring, B. ME finding them a little jarring since they don’t quite fit with the weird nonsense world of Streets of Rogue, and C. I feel like something like that could take the game from a T rating to an M rating when the ESRB eventually does its thing. Overall, it didn’t seem worth keeping this stuff in the game. Also, the idea that drug dealers sell bags of sugar to willing customers is pretty funny.

Alpha 29f (7/18/17)[edit | edit source]

I wanted to release this build because it includes a fix that I think might solve some of the issues with multiplayer level switches that people are having. Please see this thread for information on how you can help me solve these issues.

This build also includes a bunch of other fixes that I haven't had time to write up. I'll include those in the patch notes for Alpha 30, still scheduled for next week.

Alpha 29g (7/20/17)[edit | edit source]

Alright, one more! I might have a fix for issues that people were having with generic gamepads not working properly. If you've been having gamepad troubles, try this and let me know how it goes. Note that you will probably need to rebind most of your controls.

For everyone else, all your gamepad bindings will be reset in this build -- sorry!

Controller problems? Go to the Settings -> Control Setup -> Gamepad Setup -> Restore Defaults.

If that doesn't work, try the first answer in Troubleshooting

I’ll be starting work on the Park levels very soon. They’re essentially the game’s version of the grassy/outdoor theme. The next bi-weekly update might be a fairly minor one, because I’ll be knee-deep in prepping these new levels. It might be a couple of updates before they’re officially “open for business”. Taking suggestions now!
