Dweller 1.24.24 beta

UPDATE: I found a bug in the new beta. I've removed it and will upload a fix soon.

I've added yet another beta (1.24.24). It contains the following changes:

✔ #450 Fix performance issues on tablets performance (was actually solved a few betas ago)
✔ #27 Google Analytics platform
✔ #685 Changed priority of heavy weapons and thieves tools no tags
✔ #577 Make mana clearly visible in the character portrait along with HP feature (was actually solved a few betas ago)

I've added some usage tracking of Dweller using Google Analytics in the Android version. I've done this to get a better understanding of two things: 1) How is Dweller used (most common screens etc) and 2) How many people use Dweller.

Note that the usage tracking is totally anonymous, no data is sent that can identify you as a player.

If no bugs are found in this version I will upload it to Google Play.

Dweller Android beta test help needed


I'd like to ask for some help testing the latest Android beta from files.dwellergame.com/beta. The new beta uses OpenGL rendering (ie it's hardware accelerated). There's bound to be rendering issues, but according to my tests the new Android version is a lot faster, even on tablets. So, please, if you have 5 minutes to spare then install the beta and let me know how it performs on your device. If there aren't any major issues I should be able to make a release during next week and then maybe even add some new features or improve on existing functionality (more to come regarding this soon).

Lack of updates but not dead

I'm sorry for my absence and lack of updates to the game, the forum and the site. Dweller is not dead, it's just that I have very little time to work on the game. I've had a super busy spring and summer work-wise (yes, I have a full-time job that puts food on the table) and very little spare time to work on Dweller.

As you may know there's been discussions on the forum on how to improve the UI of Dweller. During the few hours I've had to spend on Dweller each week I've worked on a new UI. It is not yet complete, but it's starting to shape up. If you're curious you can check out the desktop version alpha here.

#678 Monsters should not teleport if they enter a portal

Dweller 1.24.17

I haven't had much time to work on Dweller lately. The death of a close relative has taken it's toll on me  and my family. If you're in a generous mood I suggest that you *don't* donate to Dweller and instead give some money to the fight against cancer. Did you know that there's a one in three risk that a newborn child will be diagnosed with cancer sometime during it's lifetime? You will do yourself or someone close to you a service by supporting cancer research.

Anyways, here's the change log:


#677 Scroll of Recall should transport to the deepest level visited, not the most recent
#676 Adjust price for items that grant immunities
#675 Increase number of keys sold by the merchant
#674 Improve kill tracker to show monster graphics
#673 Improve character dump
#619 Dragon Scale Shield should give fire immunity
#672 Make the NPCs in the forest immobile so that they aren't affected by knockback effects
