Update 3.0.0

List of New Features in v3.0.0

Fixed a big that granted achievements for No Beat Mode (sorry)

No Beat Mode
Added No Beat mode, enabling Bard-like gameplay for any character. Yes, even Aria for anyone who would like to experience the game’s story in an easier way!

Save and Quit Anytime
Added a Save and Quit feature to allow exiting the game and resuming the session later. The session is also automatically saved when closing the game window. Suspended and resumed runs can be submitted to the Deathless, Story and All-Characters leaderboards.

Greatly Reduced Load Times
Greatly reduced loading time when starting the game by streaming more resources on demand.

Updated Controller and Steam Deck Support
Added improved controller support via Steam Input, with gamepad-specific button symbols and Steam Deck support.

Controls and Input Improvements
Added various improvements to the controls and input system.
Added the ability to assign multiple keys or buttons to the same action.
Added support for custom multi-key combos for any in-game action.
Most menu controls can now be customized.
Mouse buttons can now be assigned to in-game actions.
Added a menu for quickly switching between keyboard/controller schemes for co-op players.

Custom Music Overhaul
Added an overhauled custom music system with the ability to save multiple playlists and switch between them.
Audio files in the MP3, OGG and FLAC formats are supported.
Beat detection is performed in the background, allowing more songs to be selected in the meantime.
Special tracks (story bosses, training, tutorial) can also be customized.
Imported songs and their beatmaps can be previewed directly in the Custom Music menu.
On Linux, a native file chooser dialog is now used in place of the in-game selection menu.

New and Improved Co-op
Added dynamic view scaling for local co-op sessions when players move away from each other.
Added independent per-player beatmaps in co-op mode: play any combination of Cadence, Bolt and Bard!
Each player tracks their own rhythm: the presence of a Bard or Bolt does not transfer their effects to all players.
Adjusted the behavior of all enemies to follow the rhythm of the nearest player.

Updated Replay System
Added an advanced option to view post-death replays from the perspective of the enemy that ended the run.
Added a redesigned replay system with hotkeys for seeking through and skipping levels.
Multi-run replays (Deathless, Story, All-Characters) now record and playback gameplay across all runs.
Replays now reproduce accurate input timings for Bard, in No Beat Mode or with Custom Music enabled.
Replay auto-saving can be configured to record all runs, only victories, or no runs at all.

Added a warning to the leaderboard menu if mods or custom rules are causing the leaderboards to be disabled.
Split co-op leaderboards into 'Cadence + Cadence' and 'Mixed Characters'.
Changed Custom Music leaderboards to also include No-Beat Mode and other rhythm customizations.
Added Low% speedrun leaderboards, tracking the fastest completion times without the use of items or shrines.
Added offline saving for achievements and stats, synchronizing them automatically once the connection is re-established.
Meeting an achievement's unlock condition while offline will grant the achievement upon reconnecting.

Speedrun Timer
In the All-Characters selection room, the speedrun timer is now always paused, including on intermediate characters.
Completing a partial run in All-Characters or Story mode no longer shows a confirmation menu while letting the speedrun timer continue.
On boss floors, the speedrun timer is always paused until the first move, even if the "Show boss intros" option is unchecked.
Waiting out a custom song now adds a time penalty of up to the original song's full duration to the speedrun timer.
This ensures that extremely short custom songs can't be used to gain an advantage on the leaderboards.

Quality of Life Updates
Added an audible countdown when unpausing to get back into the rhythm. The length of this countdown can be configured in the settings, or it can be turned off altogether.
Added a new latency calibration assistant that matches the BPM of the current song.
Added the ability to paste into text boxes (such as the run seed) by pressing *Control+V*.
Added the ability to toggle AMPLIFIED content on or off without restarting the game.
This also changes which set of leaderboards can be viewed and submitted to.

Menu and Options
Added "Custom Rules" menu, allowing various gameplay settings to be tweaked. This disables leaderboard submissions.
Added a menu for gameplay quirks - obscure mechanics or bugs from previous versions that can be toggled on or off.
Added support for unlocking the game's framerate beyond 60 FPS.
Added options to change the game's view scaling mode.
Added options to customize the intensity of screenshake, particles and freeze frames.
Added an option to show advanced settings, unlocking many additional customization options for experienced players.
Added a hotkey for searching through menus (*Control+F*). The following menus are supported: Options, Custom Rules, Mods, Reassign Controls, Select Replay, Load/Save Dungeon.

Better Modding Capabilities
Added a fully redesigned mod loader and modding menus. Multiple mods can be loaded at once, and their override priority can be customized. This includes mods altering `necrodancer.xml`: changes will be merged together in priority order. `necrodancer.xml` mods created without the AMPLIFIED DLC can now be loaded even if the DLC is enabled. Mods can be loaded in the middle of a run without requiring a restart. The Mods menu now displays thumbnails, authors and descriptions from the Steam Workshop. Subscribing to a mod while the game is running now downloads it automatically. Active mod downloads now indicate their progress in an overlay while in the lobby or in a menu.
Added a text-based translation/localization system. This allows for the creation of fan translations without needing to edit any image files. Translation template files are available in the same CSV-based format used by the game.

New Custom Level Editor
Added a new level editor with many additional features and improvements to the control scheme.
The level editor can now be used with a mouse, keyboard, or controller.
- Various shape tools are available for placing tiles and objects: freeform pen, line, filled/outlined rectangle.
- Using the eyedropper hotkey (*Q*), existing tiles and objects can be quickly selected for further placement.
- The eraser tool (*Right-click*) adaptively deletes objects, walls, or floors based on the starting point of the pen stroke.
- A selection tool allows cutting, copying, pasting, moving, and deleting rectangular sections of the level.

- Levels in custom dungeons can be reordered, duplicated and renamed.

- Boss levels in custom dungeons can now be modified in the editor after being generated, and will save their changes.
- Story bosses can be added to custom dungeons.
- Newly generated levels can be quickly rerolled with the same settings, but a different seed.
- When using a controller, grid-aligned and gyroscopic controls are supported for cursor movement.
- Hotkeys are available for Quick Save (*Control+S*), Test Level (*F5*), Undo/Redo (*Control+Z* / *+Y*) and many other actions.
- All mouse, keyboard and controller bindings can be customized.

Updated System Requirements
On all systems, at least 4 GB of RAM are required, and 8 GB or more are recommended for best performance.
On Windows, a 32-bit or 64-bit installation of Windows 7 or greater is required.
On MacOS, a 64-bit installation and MacOS version 10.10 or greater is required.

Update v3.0.0-b1560:

Hey everyone! Hope you've enjoyed the big v3.0.0 update so far! We wanted to push out a quick hotfix dealing with some of the bigger issues before the long weekend.

Fixed save file progression from previous game versions not being imported correctly from the Steam Cloud
Fixed the Holster eating stored weapons when entering the next floor
Fixed Dove being able to find Shovels
Fixed Skeleton Knights being able to spawn as lords
Fixed the Monocle not revealing gold piles and diamonds embedded in walls
Fixed speedrun timer not pausing in the All Character selection room after the first loop
Fixed Rifle, Blunderbuss and Crossbows not displaying the "Reloaded!" flyaway
Fixed Monkeys gaining too much health when grabbing a player in Randomizer mode
Fixed red chess pieces dropping blue particles
Fixed provoked secret shopkeepers not always moving to the bottom-right after the player leaves the shop
Fixed Dove not being able to unlock progression content in single-zones
Fixed Spiders falling off the walls of trapdoor penalty boxes
Fixed bombs not exploding within a secret shop while the player is on the main floor
Fixed Tempo not always spawning a Sarcophagus on boss floors
Fixed Obsidian Armor being absorbed on pickup when AMPLIFIED content is disabled
Fixed freeze spell's duration ticking down on boss enemies before entering the arena
Fixed the coin multiplier not being lost when failing to dig a wall while the Boots of Leaping are equipped
Fixed the Pawnbroker not leaving behind a large gold pile
Fixed Shrine of War not applying to Dead Ringer's minibosses
Fixed being unable to skip parts of Nocturna's final boss fight using the Boots of Lunging (this was possible in v2.59)

There are also a couple of bugs specifically with XBOX controllers and Linux that we're still looking at, but here are some workarounds:
In order for controllers to work, Steam Input must be enabled for Crypt of the NecroDancer. If you press a controller button on the intro screen, the controller will automatically be activated.
Xbox 360 controllers are too sensitive to diagonal inputs. This can be fixed by changing the D-Pad mode from "8-directional" to "4-directional" in the Steam Input controller configuration.
The Linux version does not boot up from Steam on some distributions. To fix this, open the game's properties in the Steam library, navigate to the "Compatibility" tab, enable "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool", and choose the "Steam Linux Runtime"

We are also aware that mods published in v3.0.0 are not yet visible on the Workshop - we're working on a fix for this, stay tuned!
Update 3.0.1

Is this update coming to consoles?
This update is currently just for PC, but we would like to bring it to other platforms eventually! Feature set TBD, because certain features like custom music and mods are hard to port.

I can't change the language from English in the new update! Help!
Because we switched to a text-based localization system in version 3.0.0, we're currently in the process of migrating all existing translations to this new system. We're going to re-add all previously supported languages in an upcoming patch. Until then, the Legacy Client (available as a Steam launch option) still allows you to play the game in supported languages!

How can I access No Beat Mode?
Open the Menu
Go to Custom Rules -- > Gameplay Options --> Extra Modes
Change Rhythm: Regular --> Rhythm: No Beat Mode

Now onto the patch notes!

Added an option to delete all save data to the 'Gameplay Options' menu

Changed the 'PixieRapier' quirk to enable more finegrained control over the interaction

Because we switched to a textbased localization system in version 3.0.0, we're currently in the process of migrating all existing translations to this new system. We're going to re-add all previously supported languages in an upcoming patch. Until then, the Legacy Client (available as a Steam launch option) still allows you to play the game in supported languages!
Update v3.0.2
Crypt of the NecroDancer v3.0.2 is now available! Localizations return in this update,

New Features and Changes

Localizations are back! Thanks for your patience while we worked on these.

Added automatic language detection based on Steam client preference
Added translations for the following languages: German, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese

Translation Mods
Added option to create a new language mod with a translation template via the language selection menu
Added support for loading translations from the Steam Workshop. Translation CSV files should be placed in a `languages` subfolder inside the mod's root directory
Added support for layering language modifications on top of existing translations. For this to work, mods should name their translation files according to the language ISO-code (e.g. `languages/de_DE.csv`). Supported language codes are: `en_US`, `de_DE`, `fr_FR`, `it_IT`, `es_ES`, `ja_JP`, `pt_BR`, `ru_RU`, `ko_KR`, `zh_CN`, `zh_TW`. In addition, if a mod provides a file called `languages/all.csv`, text strings can be injected across all languages
Added support for overriding English strings in language mods (via `languages/en_US.csv`)
Added support for overriding text strings across all languages in mods (via `languages/all.csv`)

Point Symmetric Co-op HUD Mode
Player 2's HUD is mirrored horizontally and vertically, allowing the icons and text to be displayed at a larger scale
This is enabled by default on the Steam Deck to improve readability

Update v3.0.2 (continued)

Skin Mods Support
Added an advanced setting to enable selecting skins for any character in the 'Change Skin' menu
Added support for selecting non-AMPLIFIED character skins from mods while AMPLIFIED content is enabled. When standing on a wire, the character is displayed as normal instead of displaying an electricity effect. When Quartz or Heavy Glass armor is equipped, the character sprite is shown without the armor

Added pause menu indicator and run introduction text to indicate that Custom Rules or `necrodancer.xml` mods are active
Added compatibility with "Words to Arrows" and other workshop mods that tweak the key combo HUD text
Added an option to show default HUD text for each input map to the 'Reassign controls' menu

Calibration Additions

Added a grace period of 50 milliseconds immediately following a valid input. During this time, missed beats are silently ignored instead of causing the coin multiplier to be lost

Level Editor
Added the ability to quickly switch to the level editor's category list and dismiss searches by right clicking the object panel

New Launch Parameters for Steam Cloud and Native Controller Support
Added launch parameter `--no-steam-cloud` to disable Steam Cloud synchronization
Added launch parameter `--no-steam-input` to disable Steam Input and enable native controller support. This should restore compatibility with Dancepads and other input devices not recognized by Steam Input. Some controller models may use non-standard button layouts, requiring manual configuration via the 'Reassign controls' menu. In addition to passing this launch option, it may be required to disable Steam Input Integration in the properties of Crypt of the NecroDancer within the Steam library

Changed skin loader to automatically apply modded skins to all characters, instead of just the currently active character

Local co-op players now share their coin multipliers, gold counters and spell inventories. This also applies to Cadence and Dorian in Cadence’s final boss fight in single-player.
Local co-op players always teleport together when entering or exiting a secret shop, while online co-op players can enter and leave separately.

The original vector font from previous versions can be enabled in the language options.
