    Default KeeperFX - Test builds for version 0.5.1

    KeeperFX 0.5.0 has been released, so work has started on version 0.5.1. For that, it helps if people play with the new software and tell us about bugs and other problems.

    Up to date change list compared to the 0.5.0 release.

    The KeeperFX.net website allows you download every alpha version as soon as it is created. See here.


    Earlier versions could be found here: Alpha Builds

    More instructions are on the wiki.

    The Alpha builds come as small patches that should be extracted over a fully functional and installed KeeperFX 0.5.0 version. Overwrite ALL files it asks.
    The KeeperFX.cfg file included holds you settings. If you don't want to lose them when updating, do not replace this file with a new one.

    It could happen that save games from older versions no longer load in newer versions. However, the campaign progress is not lost, only the progress on the level you were playing. Therefore it's advised to update in between levels.

    If you want to make custom modifications to your own game, do this to the 'personal' folder, see 'levels/personal.cfg'. That way, you can update freely without losing your modifications.

    Please feel free to share any feedback. You can often find me on the Keeperklan Discord too.

    Default KeeperFX - Alpha 3170

    New update: Alpha 3170.

    First alpha for 0.5.1, it has some new stuff, but mainly it contains all the changes from the 0.5.0 alphas that did not make it into the release.

    what's new:

    • Fixed a bug with wrong sounds playing
    • Fixed Crash on possession/heart zoom on ultra high resolutions (above 1920x1080)
    • Fixed a bug with ghosts not looking right
      - This bug was only there in the new alpha's, not in the 0.5.0 release
    • Smoothed out message boxes opening/closing with delta time
    • Updated chinese message strings
    • Fixed unexplored slabs being updated when enemies reinforce walls there
    • Low res tooltip speed and workshop progress icon positioned, map candles fixed
    • Heart lost objective now only displays when YOU lose your heart


    For people updating from 0.5.0 to this first alpha, it also contains all fixes and features made after 0.4.9.3080. If you want to read about all updates, read from here.

    But the highlights:
    • Thing limit quadrupled, so no more issues from running out of thing slots
    • More creature types possible
    • Possible to play maps smaller than default 85x85 slabs
    • Possible to mod the game to have more shot types, and use them on creatures
    • Cursor light no longer flickers
    • Fixes to minimap dots jumping with delta time
    • Four more campaigns can now be played in Chinese


    People that already updated to 0.5.0 alpha 3073 or newer, can 'simply' update to to 0.5.1 alpha 3170 or newer, no need to first go to full 0.5.0 release in between. People who were on the 0.4.9 release do need to update to the 0.5.0 release before going to these alphas.

    Default KeeperFX - Alpha 3177

    New update: Alpha 3177.

    People still reported the sound bug on 3170, so another update where hopefully this bug is gone for

    Beyond that, what's new:

    • Totally removed the 'heap manager' sprite/sound buffer that provided sound bugs
    • Cleaned up a lot of game structures that we now know weren't used by the original game at all
    • Allowed mapmakers to make larger hero parties (up to 30 heroes)
    • Introduced a BarrackMaxPartySize rule (config/script) and set it to 8 (old hardcoded value)
      - Allows mapmakers/modders to change this value to allow up to 30 units in a barracks party
    • Allowed mapmakers to give dungeon hearts a lot more health. (Default health unchanged)

    Yes, sorry. Seems to be some bigger problems with save games after updating. Will try to fix this.

    Default KeeperFX - Alpha 3205

    Emergency Release: Alpha 3205.

    Reverted the 'continue game' fix from last version, because it ONLY handled corrupt saves well and it stopped people from advancing through a campaign.

    what's new:

    • Made sure people can continue their campaigns again
    • Fixed speeches played when picking up specials

    Default KeeperFX - Alpha 3220

    New update: Alpha 3220.

    Long time since I posted here, because the easiest way to get alpha's is now to simply go here.
    On keeperfx.net it's possible to download every single alpha as soon as it is made.

    what's new:

    • Fixed a recent bug causing flying/lava walking creatures to be able to see and shoot through walls
    • Improved way how translation templates work.
      - This allows map packs and campaigns which have some translations to still display the GUI in the local language in languages where level translations are missing
      - Activated for Standard/Classic level packs and Evil Keeper campaign
    • New level script command:
      - SET_TEXTURE([player],[texture]) - gives a specific player a specific map texture, like snow or swamp serpent.
    • Level script fixes:
      - DRAWFROM now draws from correct range in IF statements
      - Fixed ON_ENEMY_GROUND and related script criteria
    • Made the casting delay for the lighting keeper power configurable, and possible to use on any power by campaign makers
      - In magic.cfg 'Time' has been renamed to 'Duration', as it is the duration of a power.
      - To use it, give a power the NEEDS_DELAY property and set a 'Cooldown'.
    • Fixed a flicker issue on the heart when skipping heart zoom
    • Suppressed some log warnings/errors
    • Added all remaining trap properties to the config file for configuration, and possible to configure through the script
    • KeeperFX version displays in main menu. Should help with multiplayer matches, be sure to have the same version.
