Shark Attack Deathmatch - version 1.1 changes

Since releasing Shark Attack Deathmatch on Xbox we have been listening to your feedback and working on some improvements & bug fixes.
So far we have made the following changes and new features, with still more to come for this release:

  • Updated physics engine (for improved performance)
  • Currently if you hold the knife down and then let it go it doesn't count as a slash.
    Now both the slash left & right will count as attacks which should make it a little easier to knife an attacking shark as well as other divers.
  • Pressing X will now reload your gun
  • The Screensaver mode has a re-designed option menu (can now turn the music & clock on and off)
  • Player now swims about 5% faster
  • Player now 'sprints' about 10% faster
  • Aiming speed has been tweaked to make it easier to aim
  • Sharks don't do less damage know, so you have a bit more of a chance of getting away
  • The speargun reloads much faster
  • The speargun spear now travels faster
  • You don't use up as much oxygen when sprinting any more
  • Game Load times are now faster (was about 20 seconds until the start button displays), now its about 12 seconds
Current Bug Fixes
  • Some people were experiencing a Null Exception crash when the scoreboard was showing
  • Ammo is now reset when re-starting any game mode
  • Knife is not bloody any-more when you respawn just after knifing someone
We are currently busy adding a new level which will feature a Pirate Shipwreck,
here are some initial screenshots at the prototyping stage of the level design.
Note there is no lighting or any other effects applied to these models yet, the final version will look a lot better!

Keep your ideas and comments coming in! We make sure we read every single one!
