This is a quick update to the state of “more than four xbox controllers in cobalt”.
Due to the comments on the last post, I realized the fix was rather trivial.
In v125 all xbox controllers after the forth will instead be added as direct input devices. This means they will be slightly less featured, lacking force feedback and worse analog trigger support. But it will work:
I tried this with 4 wired xbox 360 controllers, and 1 wireless xbox 360 controllers using a usb-dongle receiver.

How’s visiting family (or whatever else you do!) going? In my case, it’s keeping me quite busy!
However, I had enough spare time to check the Oxeye blog during the 25th!
What’s so important about that, you ask? Well, our dear community member Librus wrote a very interesting blogpost to celebrate such day and holidays!
Go read if you haven’t already! The link is here.

Time flies, doesn’t it?

As many of you might know, guess or assume, in the next version there will be some new weapons for you to shoot, throw or slash into the baddies’ faces…
This week, I present to you two new curious throwables that can be quite useful in some situations.

Trif has been quite busy trying to exfiltrate the Oxeye Headquarters and whatnot, so for now I’m in charge of posting on this blog! For those who don’t know me, I’ve been making maps for Cobalt for quite a long time now, and I also hang around a lot in the Cobalt IRC channel.
But that’s probably not what you are here for!
So hit that “read more” button for some…

For the last 4 weeks we have been doing pre-testing of the next version including adventure mode with selected community members, and so far they have reported 353 bugs/feedbacks/opinions. We have equipped the bug-spray and are now in the process of going through this. We still don’t know when this process will be done, but so far we have tested chapters 1,2,3 and 4 with 5,6 and 7 remaining.
If you didn’t watch the dev-streams, here is screenshot!
If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to comment!

I realized today that I have applied approach 1 too much in game design. I must apply approach 2 more!

Changes are happening, fast. What’s up with the changes to the Arcade? What is the Arcade? Why am I wearing socks?
After a few good days of digging, it’s time to bring the first payload of gold to the surface. The next iteration of project Cobalt is going through the final phase of development, and I’ve found a few changes I want to share before the Kraken is released.
