More stuff:
* close a Macbook lid with JH running in full screen, and it freezes the computer. Some hotkeys like volume control still work, but the game is on the screen forever, and Cmd-Q doesn't work.
* Not completely happy with chord keys. If I hold Up to run north, then shortly press Left to step west, and then let Left go, I expect Flynn to continue running north, but he stops instead.

Voiceover idea: add a "repeated reaction" property to each voiceover track, if it's a response to action that was already unsuccessfully tried less than 5 s ago. This lets Flynn speak phrases "I told you, there's nothing here!", "Did you hear me the last time?", "Last time I checked there was nothing here", "No shit, there's nothing here!", "Santa didn't bring me anything", "How many times can you reload a loaded gun?" or "No, seriously, nothing to act on here."

Bugs and missing shortcuts on Mac:
* there's no video at all in fullscreen with an external monitor set as primary. It disappears on applying the settings, and doesn't come back after restart. There's no other way but edit configuration.lua.
* If JH really supports no-keypad keyboards, it should support: Fn-Up/Down for PgUp/PgDn, Fn-Left/Right for Home/End (begin/end of a list or a mortem, for example). There's no other way to quickly navigate these.
* It would be nice for traditional Cmd-, to open the settings screen.
* Maybe Ctrl-Cmd-F or Cmd-Enter could toggle fullscreen.

Gameplay:
* The AI is definitely better, but it feels like the game punishes you for not pressing "." (wait) enough. This is more or less natural, because defensive style is more profitable, but AFAIR the general goal was to make the game faster.

I was wary of rocket launcher, as in DRL it destroys items. It was surprising that in JH it doesn't.
I even ignored an ADV launcher.

First time I got that far. Didn't know there won't be any ammo Beyond, so didn't have enough with me, so became reckless.

Technician's Field Medic is really OP, I didn't even use his activated abilities much.
Didn't figure out how to activate Scavenger.
Bringing 6 keycards to Vaults would be really tough; clearing them wasn't. I figured I can shoot beyond range with a Hunter Rifle and take out those pesky turrets. Why isn't Hunter Rifle a Sniper Rifle? Is there a better one?..

Took most of my Saturday. Taking a break from JH for a while now.

The mortem format lacks the armor's percentage.

Flynn Taggart, level 14 Technician, killed on
BEYOND L3 by a archreaver.

He survived for 19590 turns.
The run time was 5h 21m 54s.
He scored 3106 points.
He took MEDIUM risks.

Nice. I feel I could make it too if I played more than a couple times a week.

@Epyon: as there are different ADV weapons, it would be nice to see their stats in the mortem.

Correct. JH, as well as DRL, does that.
Generally, the data between entering a level and crash would be lost, which is nothing in your case.
You can compress the log (I recommend 7z), upload it to a 3rd-party service, like Dropbox, and share a link.

It would be nice if targeting mode displayed the item on the floor of the targeted cell. For example, in the top right corner, if there is no enemy/door to target now.

Balance notes after playing for some time on the lover levels.
* The ammo-only crates (blue ones?) feel like a waste of level points (if the level generator works same way as in DRL). Now that the ammo is in abundance to balance lack of unloading, is there a need for them?

* Sorry to hear that it took you that insane amount of resources to create a Mac version. It's a huge sacrifice, and I value it tremendously!
I can envision a headline in some press: "Apple's proprietary technology costs $100k to an indie game developer to port a game to Mac and drives them almost broke".
* I believe, RTX will make the missing lighting pre-calculation "problem" go away eventually. Maybe a bit too late, maybe not.
* Can't wait for a Switch version, even though then I'll be completely lost for the society. Will do my best to sell it to all the Switch gamers I know.
* I'm really happy to have pointed out that Zenimax only demands to take down the names :D Don't want to steal the credit for being the first with the idea, but I remember pointing this out.
* Can the game's animations be modded? For some reason, I feel that animation of hunkering down and shooting from behind a cover would feel super-fun. I do understand that it's a way lower priority than the stuff you have on your hands now.

« on: September 25, 2019, 14:11 »
You mean, I cannot access Mac console without running a Terminal.app?
Can it be mitigated with a quick hack: create a second app and to bundle an Alacritty or other terminal emulator with a permissive license?

* Got it about med station, thanks.
* My impression was the game already has debris after rockets explosion, and smoke from barrels. If those don't work here, then sorry, it's not as if I'm demanding more fluff for the sake of it.
* Shame. On. Me. I didn't even think of reading the help! (no sarcasm except for self-irony)

I totally understand that voice acting is expensive and you only have a couple of sessions and you are generally stretched too thin.

What I think is that you may get more out of these limited resources, because there is a quite cheap way to make the writing of the voice more awesome: by filtering ideas that your followers may throw at you for free. Barring a little investment of time, like creating a couple of forum posts and a Discord channel. Discord even allows voting for the ideas with emoticons.

More notes:
* just tried switching current weapon in E screen with 1-2-3. What if it worked? OTOH, E screen shouldn't switch the active weapon in-game, it will take time units.
* I still expect Esc key to work in all the windows: game over window, score table, the main menu, etc.
* When I shoot enemies at the range of my sight and hit (I see blood on the floor), they just turn around and go away. In DRL, they would pursue me.

Love the speedup on low-end machines!

* I expect keys C, E etc to work in their peer windows too. Like, E will switch me to equipment screen from character screen.
* When leaving medical station after increasing health, my marine has to spend a turn on exiting, and cannot (seemingly?) use Adrenaline to full extent of 45% pain he was in, and only use 21%. Can we auto-return when the station is out of charges? Or is it a balancing choice?
* Weapon description in E window could also mention the kind of ammo. Not just "36" but "36 of 7.62".
* How can I examine the descriptions of traits that I already have, or others? My total shooting/moving speed?
* I expect more debris and smoke in the first room, as the dropship was shot down and crash-landed. Probably shattered floor.
* I miss "use from the floor" U key.
* Can we have a game mechanics FAQ? I remember a discussion of what the Dodge changing during the animation means, but kill me if I remember what's the idea of it. Same stands for weapon ranges. Same for, what is the distance in the range, Manhattan distance or Pythagoras's distance?

Ideas:
* when a profanity level is set to 0, default the character name to some mr. Nice Guy character, like Steve Rogers;
* some more voice fluff: when a game was idle, and a player takes an action, say something like "I thought you left me here" or "Aaaah, you scared me!" (Starcraft reference). Opening a storage: "Now, what do we have here..." with variations like "Thank you, Santa!"; he can misspell it as "Satan" on high profanity level, but I'm afraid it would be too much for USA. In general, there are so many more funny things for the voice. Making a brainstorm in Discord/at the forum might be fun.

Wow, you're good.
I'm quite OK at DRL, but for some reason I'm horrible at JH.

Note the rectangular shades on the floor, and the triangular shards in a corner light.
I see these all the time.
