Hi there,

Are you able to post a screen recording of everything leading up to the freeze? That should help with figuring out what's happening.

I booted up the game and tried stuff like just going down the pipe, going back and forth between the junction and the pipe, taking damage while going down the junction, etc, and none of those caused the freeze. Can you clarify what you meant by "fairly consistent"? Does the freeze happen when you try to go down the pipe or are you trying to go back up, or something else?

I've also received a similar report over on Discord, and I'm waiting for a recording of that. Having two different recordings would be ideal since then I can compare the similarities/differences, which would hasten the bug finding process.

A Steam key is not included if you got the game from the Bundle for Ukraine.

As stated on the bundle's page

Please note: No Steam (or other external keys) will be given for bundle purchases. Only direct downloads will be available on the itch.io page.

The text you're referring to is not a part of the game's description, but instead a part of itch.io's automatically generated purchase description which only applies if you buy the game separately.

Thank you for the report! I've added it to the to-do list.

This topic is now hidden due to not receiving a reply for a long time. It'll be un-hidden if the discussion continues.

Hi,

Could you specify how exactly the settings aren't being saved? Are you talking about the general settings, or the control bindings, or something else entirely?

This is now fixed. You can re-download the game and everything should work as expected.


I thought this was another issue related to signing on macOS, but it was instead the actual binary not having the execute permission set for some reason? Which is quite strange, considering it passed the automatic "does the game start" test. But I guess that just shows how little I know.

If you want to fix the issue without re-downloading the game, you can open Terminal, use cd to switch to the directory you downloaded the game to, and run the following command:

chmod +x CaL-ABP-macOS.app/Contents/MacOS/CaL-ABP-macOS

Let me know if anything else pops up.

Alright, thank you!

I'm gonna be taking a closer look at that for the next patch (1.2.7).

Do note that your processor does not meet the minimum requirements listed on the store page. It shouldn't be the cause of the run-away memory usage, but just something to keep in mind.

I'll take another look at that then.

Can you post the log file of the crash to something like Pastebin? Should be in: "C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\LocalLow\Last Quarter Studios\Cats are Liquid - A Better Place". If you've played the game since the crash, it has most likely been replaced with a newer file that doesn't contain information about the crash. Best way to make sure the file has the wanted information is to just let the game crash again and then check the contents of the file.

If you could also provide me with the output of the "systeminfo" command, it would be much appreciated. The quickest way to get the output of that into a file is to open up command prompt and run "systeminfo > info.txt" (without the quotes), which would then place the output of the "systeminfo" command into a file called "info.txt". Pastebin would be ideal for that too.

This completely flew under my radar. Sorry about that.

A couple of the latest (1.2) updates should've fixed this. If similar behaviour still occurs, let me know and I'll investigate it.

Sorry about that. It was an issue with the upload. Everything should work now.

Should be fixed now! I had accidentally marked the soundtrack as an executable and that's why it wasn't showing up.

Try looking for a possible graphics driver update. If that doesn't work my best guess would be that your system doesn't meet the minimum requirements, in which case there's little I can do.

There will be more tutorial prompts added to W10R8 in the 1.1 update.

In that case I suggest you contact itch.io's support and explain the issue.

Here's the link to their support page: https://itch.io/support

I got a reply from itch.io and they have confirmed that this is intended behavior. The game will only show up as bought once you've clicked the download button from the bundle's download page.

The game has indeed been released. That was a mistake on my part, it's been fixed now.

Clipping into the environment with the float ability will be fixed in 1.1.

This seems to be an issue with itch.io.

I bought the bundle on my personal account, and can confirm that while the game shows up in the bundle search and can be downloaded using the link included in the search results, it doesn't show the "You own this game" banner at the top of the game page.

I've contacted itch.io support about this. Meanwhile, you can download the game from the bundle download page.

The intended way to get past that section, is to just stay as an ice block the entire way through, and to jump over any obstacles on the ground.

The reason the soundtrack for A Better Place is only on Steam right now is because itch would currently require me to make a brand new project page for it. I'd much rather have it as a DLC-style-thing like with Steam. There seems to be a sub-product system being developed (https://itch.io/blog/105823/return-of-the-itchio-changelog-markdown-sub-prducts-...) and I'd like to wait for that to come out and see how it works, and make the decision of how to get the soundtrack here after that.

The reason ALitS has the soundtrack on Steam and itch is because it just comes free with the game.

In the mean time you can listen to the ABP soundtrack on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaf72QlWgB6ed4_U-jCt43w6IjIjGdyGr

Hi!

I sent a reply to your email.

The reason the macOS build wasn't launching was due to an error in a script I had set up to automatically sign builds.

The issue is fixed now, so you can just download the new macOS build and you'll be good to go!

Thank you very much!

Hi.

Right now, you need to create a map before you can play the game. There aren't any maps shipped with the game. Yeah, I know it's pretty dumb. The 0.2.0 version will come with a pre-made map though.

I just published a patch to fix the bug. Just update the game and you'll be good to go. I've also credited you in the changelog.

Let me know if you have any other issues with the game!

Thanks for the bug report. I'm working on a fix for it right now.
