The new beatstar has now been released!
Please, go to my website and download it. It is available for both Windows and mac.
I will try to answer here some questions that people have been asking:
1. Packs are compatible? Yes, all packs are compatible, they do not need to be remade. In fact, when you run the download packs menu option, you will be able to get them all.
2. Yes, I recommend that you delete all your packs before installing the new version unless you want to use double the disk space. The old pack format cannot be used with the new beatstar because it is a bgt format.
To delete your old packs, you need to go into application data, roaming, oriol gomez, packs. There you will find all the pack files.
3. This question has not been asked, but I'm putting it here in case someone is curious. The new save file location is the user folder/beatpacks/save.dat.
And the old save file sadly does not work with the new version. The way that the game saves your stuff is much more efficient, which also makes it different. If someone is really pissed about this, send me an email or something and we can work something out.
On windows, it is recommended that you use your screen reader to play.
If you are using NVDA and hear blank blank blank when you press hotkeys, turn off browse mode by pressing NVDA space.
With jaws you might have the same problem just use insert z.
As always, if you have questions or problems please get in touch. Also, consider donating if you really enjoy the game.
I will be releasing new versions of all my other games soon, as well.
