Enter the Gungeon Patch 1.0.8

By Austin Phoenix, 7 months ago
Hey everyone,

Pretty big patch today! The biggest change included is a fix for a bug which was preventing ammo crates from spawning for players using the starting guns heavily (thanks /u/asymptotical, /u/Zatherz, and /u/RatchetHero for helping find this!). The problem was with how room clear rewards are calculated, which occurs the moment you kill the last enemy in a room; typically you get a chance at a normal room clear reward (which can be a chest, heart, armor, ammo, etc), and a second chance specifically for an ammo drop. Due to this bug, that separate ammo drop roll wasn't happening if the player was holding an infinite ammo gun... In other words, using starting guns decreased the chance for ammo crates to spawn considerably! Hopefully this fix addresses the issues some have been having with ammo, though we'll continue to watch drop rates over time.

In addition, we added a new scaling mode in the graphics settings called Fast Scaling. This mode is only slightly different from Uniform Scaling, but should perform substantially better on GPU-limited systems. If you've tried to play in Uniform Scaling mode but couldn't due to performance, try Fast Scaling out! Please report any issues with Fast Scaling mode to [email protected]
