Version history

1.1.0

Engine

  • Midair jumping reworked.
  • Fixed horizontal momentum when holding forward.
  • Horizontal momentum now decreases by 30% if no direction is held.
  • Backwards jumps now reset all horizontal momentum.

  • Projectiles can now respond to receiving “damage”.

  • Hitboxes are now processed after the current frame is rendered, making collisions more obvious and making it so that immediate pauses reflect proper impact.

  • Attack hitboxes are now processed if player grabs the edge on the same frame.
  • Previous frame before ledge grab is no longer shown for an extra frame.

  • Removed the artificial 5 frame dodge/spotdodge delay that kicked in after spot-dodges.
  • When using a homing attack, the homing target is now cleared when the attack initiates.
  • It is now possible to enter turn animation during the first frame of skid so turning is not frame perfect.
  • Additional tweaks to turns to behave more like Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
  • Characters with moves that allow them to be grabbed during intangibility frames can no longer be grabbed during the move if invincible via revival or starman.
  • Characters using alt costumes will revert to the default during screen KOs if fullscreen and quality is set to software mode to prevent lag spikes.
