Man in the Middle hacking game

Hi, Code 7 is a really cool game, and I am glad I could participate in the Kickstarter.

In playing Ep 0 I noticed however that the "hacking" game – albeit being quite cool – was also quite frustrating. I think this is due to two things: keyboard control is too laggy and did sometimes not register or register too late. Also automatic completion completed things i typed in before the "hacking" game began. This should feel as crisp as when you would work with the Terminal Software your choice. And the other problem was that the movement of the "security" programs was too erratic (in the second Hacking game), so that the game was more a game of chance and not one of skill. (I hope you intended it to be a game of skill).

I am confident that these problems can be solved easily without breaking game immersion.

Hello again, Okona,

I presume you're talking about the last hacking game with the large amount of security drones? That part is more or less an exception and the showdown of Episode 0. Future hacking will be definitely more skill based. There will be things you can find and do before and during hacking games to manipulate the hack, e.g. freezing security nodes or creating new passages.

Regarding lag and input errors, like in the other thread, would ask you to post your platform and specs, so we can look into this.


Cheers,
Zein
