Weekly Update 13 is now live on Steam. Here’s a summary of the biggest changes.

Black Screen Fix

 

We received a number of reports from users that were experiencing an issue where the game would start up with a black screen. This was caused by the game not being able to load any of the files it needs to execute. The common elements between the reports was Windows 8 and having the game installed to a drive other than C: After a lot of back and forth, we tracked down the issue to Windows reporting the wrong case for the directory the game was installed to.

Revised UI

This week we overhauled the layout of the editor UI. As we’ve developed Future Perfect, we’ve been adding new editor features and concepts as we discovered the need. As a result there wasn’t too much rhyme or reason to the layout. Although we still have more to implement, it feels like we’ve got a pretty good handle on all of the major functional pieces, so it was time to step back and think how they could be better integrated into a single UI.

We’ll be iterating more on the UI, so please let us know what you think.

Although the new UI is primarily just a new organization of the existing one, it did give us the opportunity to add in an entity search feature.…
