FIXES 25 JULY 2017

1. Intro cinematic finishes after 60 seconds.
2. Escape Quit Menu has controls recap.
3. ALT-TAB on title screen doesn't lose mouse anymore.
4. Carried Items no longer pass through walls but they do react in other weird ways - more work needed ;-)
5. Datapad text now instant display = less annoying.
6. Elevator goes back down after 5 seconds.

Thanks for all the support so far!!

Hello fellow game fans and creators.

I am also following the being series since its first appearance and have stumbled upon this beta version.

Runs fine on best settings in window on a WinXP Sp3, Pentium D @2,66 Mhz, 3 Gb RAM, Nvidia GeForce 5300FX  PC (basically standard low end game computer around 2009).

Also running good on Win 64/I6600@2,2 GHz/Intel GMA 5400/ 4GB (shared RAM with GFX chip) - Lenovo B560 notebook.

Win 64 i5/8GB /nvidia 320 (Thinkpad T510) also running fine and smooth.

Controls are always on the spot. Jumping goes smooth and precise.


I would suggest that you maybe add a climbing action for rough walls or ladders and a pick up action for crates as well as different (mouse)buttons for shooting, activating/picking up/throwing and maybe zoom.  If my suggestions do make sense naturally depends on your ideas for the game design.

The blue static lights on the ceiling sometimes seem to shine through the columns. Repositioning might solve this.

Concerning killer bugs, i have not found many, found the "sneaky" letters, though ;)

The datapads change text to a loading / boot up message although activated when you de focus the game window. Nothing bad, just a bit of irritation. I would prefer a "shining force" text, meaning for everyone annoyed by delayed text appearance (Zelda psychosis ;) ) a "click for complete page immediately" option.

Dead end: You can send the elevator up by jumping back when activating the switch. There are no means to get the elevator down again. Time triggered return or calling buttons may resolve this. Would also be ok if you added a ladder or enough edges to jump up  the endless shaft down although the forced teleport when falling below definitely works, wherever you want to fall off.

Pushing crates and steel balls down the shaft will result in their complete disappearance, when jumping after them.


Annoyances:

Nano slaves seem to activate erratically, there is no means telling why they switch from passive mode to attack.

Rycrofts two part passcode needs to be assembled from onscreen messages on two defunct laptops. Maybe you could change the timer settings, the "random" screen output or whatever controls that to some "click for next text" mechanism. Was really  annoying to get through dumb luck "searching" only to receive some already known storyline text.

Yellow doors on the upper floor did not open. I assume that after going up the elevator the demo does not let me go further. (Or i am too dumb to find the key/lock/switch).


All in all, really great work so far. Cannot wait to see this game up and running in full version.( Or at least the next beta with more to explore.) ;)

Great feedback, thank you so much!!

New FINAL DEMO BUILD coming out very very soon. Thanks for your support!

Greetings psionics,

love your games since the first being one, i really enjoyed what exists so far in the beta, the sneaky EE was a nice touch. I played the beta on graphics settings of good on my pc which is not very advanced and ran into no problems, if my toshiba satellite ran it ok other computers should be fine. anyway thanks for making your games and so far this game is coming along great, keep up the good work. 

Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it!!

Great game so far!! Love how it went from a mostly P&C to this!! 

A suggestion: when you enter the elevator, I suggest you add a door because people can press the button and jump out when it goes up to the next floor! Then when you die, you respawn but the elevator stays at the second floor, so it is impossible to reach! 

Keep up the awesome work!!

Thanks and well spotted...I will fix it.

Game is looking great! love the whole being one series :D keep it up!

Thanks, I should be getting back onto development of this in the near future...updates & news soon!

Thanks for your support!

Alright so,game runs pretty nice on full settings.The mouse sensitivity is a little bit too much,would be nice to have a setting for that.

The specs I'm running the game are:

CPU: AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7670M

GPU 2: AMD Radeon HD 7520G + HD 7670M Dual Graphics

RAM: 4GB


Side note,love the hidden stuff and the 3D models.Never managed to find the first 2 digits for the password though ;-;.

Will look into a sensitivity setting, thanks for the feedback and the stats, it all helps!!

hint, both broken computers reveal a portion of the code in the random messages

Everything is fine at maximum quality in 1920x1080 with an Amd Phenom II, 4 gigs of RAM and a Nividia GTX 560 (1 gig).

Thanks, really appreciate the feedback!

I'm really liking the way this is turning out. It will definitely be the best Being One by far! Thanks for the edition of mouse over text :) I always enjoyed the exploration of the previous titles.

(+1)

Yeah, I am hoping to keep it mostly exploration and puzzles with occasional shooting - I want to stay true to the point & click games of the previous episodes but with more freedom via the FPS control system.

looks interesting, nice sounds! Look forward to the next version!

Awesome! Glad to see another Being One in development :) I've very much enjoyed all of your games over the years. But this series is definitely my favorite! I'm an old school fan of the slideshow/node/panorama style of gameplay but I also enjoy full 3D exploration. With Unity I can see this and future games becoming something even more amazing as well as attracting a larger audience!

The demo runs flawless for me on my laptop. Here are my specs: Windows 10 64bit with i5 5200 at 2.2GHz. Integrated Intel HD 5500 graphics, dedicated 1GB but shared up to 3GB. 6GB of ram. resolution 1366x768. Hope this helps :)

(+1)

Thank you so much for testing it out and the for the detailed report, it really helps!!

Although it does use an FPS control system it will still be sticking to the puzzle/escape the room roots but hopefully provide a more 're-playable' game with puzzles, 2D mini-games, hacking, files to discover, video elements and I'm also hoping to introduce some secret website links that have short videos embedded on my website - to add secret extra background content that would possibly take up too much space if included in the game.

Anyway, Thanks again and watch this space as the BETA will be advancing rapidly over the next few weeks!

Cool, I'm really liking the feel of this. The graphics and effects are very nice. The controls are nice and smooth as well. The alien/monster things caught me by surprise lol.
