a first summary:


"Quest Of The Dwarfes King" became

Dvergatal --- Thorin's Quest (Early Access) (Free)

Extensive improvements and more scope:
Currently, two out of three "dragon flames" can be freed from the claws of the Spider King.

For deceased heroes there is a hall with "Mists Of Eternity".
In this, the player can draw new strength. If he is worthy to enter the hall....

Improved difficulty level:
Upgrades don't cost quite as much anymore.
Loot (gold) is sometimes higher.
Opponents adjust their life energy to the player's level.
Opponents attacks and defense, however, retain their stored value.

Shops:
In the case of purchases, the player is asked whether the purchase should be made.

Basics:

Requirements:
Windows 10 (Windows 7.8) will work, but a note will be issued.
Free memory for the game from 150MB to 500MB
Free memory for installation:
200 MB
Graphics card : Should any functioning (including integrated solutions)
Processor: Intel or AMD .
Recommended Intel I5 GEN 8 or AMD Ryzen 5 Series
Resolution:
At least 1280 x 720
The engine does not take into account the aspect ratio at the current level, screens that differ strongly from "16:9",
show a slightly speckled or stretched image

Installation:
Unpack the "zip" archive.
In the folder "THORIN" start the program with double-click.
Because I don't have a signature service, Windows issues a warning message.
Please start the program "Despite" .

The game creates a folder in the user directory after it is started.
This fills up with the data necessary for the game during the course of the game.
If another user (Windows login) starts the game for this
created a separate folder.
This automatically gives each logged-in user a game progress folder.

Input/control:
Keyboard or (and) GamePad (Xbox One Controller)

Notes and layout are optimized for controllers.

Control:
Game start: Keyboard: "SPACE", Controller "StartButton"
Game break: Keyboard: "SPACE", Controller "StartButton"
Inventory: Keyboard: "O" , Controller "Select"

All other keys correspond to the displayed icons for keyboard as for controllers.

Fight:
The axe is thrown with "X" in the direction of travel.
Thorin stops briefly when throwing an axe.

The shield (yellow bar) fills up automatically.
The life force (green bar) is filled with healing potions, at level rise and at spheres of light.
Healing potions only replenish part of the life force.
Healing potions are taken automatically when the life force drops below 25%.

When Thorin is in combat, there are the following limitations:
As long as the combat timer (indicated by rotating axe symbol on the ground and backed with combat music) has not expired
the following actions are NOT possible:

Save the progress of the game.
Use of the Spheres of Light (Saves the game progress and Thorin is fully recovered)
Talking to other people in the game.
Reading of notice boards.
Exit the current section.
Enter other sections.
Using Teleporter.
Open the inventory.

Thorin displays a corresponding message on the screen.

During the fight, or by calling the Inventory, life energy and level progress are displayed.
After the fight, this is hidden.

Possible are:
Picking up/collecting objects
chests, etc.

Should Thorin die:
The game continues at the last valid memory point.
Any unsaved progress will be lost.
(Inventory objects collected in combat, such as Healing Potions, are preserved.)

If Thorin is worthy, he can enter the "Mists Of Eternity".
There Thorin can, if he has sufficient middle weight (gold)
the axe, the shield, strengthen the life energy.

General:
Shops:
After the shop chest has been opened, it is only available after re-entering the shop.

Known errors:
Inventory:
It may happen that not all collected items are displayed or
no longer be displayed.
These are still in inventory.

Day/Night Change:
Thorin goes into waiting mode.
This is automatically taken when a direction button/stick is used.

Quality of the english-language text edition needs to be revised.

Update:
Engine:
Weapon handling:
New universal way of creating weapons further reduces (rare) graphics errors.

Game:
Thorin can move during the axe throw.
With each enemy eliminated in a time window, the cooling phase is reduced for another axe throw.
This can be stacked 5 times.

If no enemies are eliminated for a certain period of time, the cooling phase is reset.

Balancing:
The new or changed game mechanics require further adjustment of the difficulty level.

Update:
Complete revision of the engine core components:

Object and Graphic Streaming:
Fixed graphics errors.

Delegate:
Unified.

Sound:
Unified.

Performance:
Generally more stable and better.
High levels of opponents do not slow down the engine as much as in the previous versions.

Content:
Some maps are completely reworked.
Therefore, the current scope of this version is much smaller than
previous versions.

If the player wants to enter an area that is not yet available, a
appropriate notice.

New:
Error messages in the game, are queried with in-game requester.
If an error occurs, the game can usually be at the last valid point
(checkpoint).

Checkpoints are created at:
Entering / Leaving Maps
Collect Quest Items.
Various checkpoints on maps.

Known issues:
There may be break-ins in the frame rate:

This is done with:
Reaching a checkpoint (game progress is saved)
Loading larger files (animations)
Loading sound files (larger files such as background music are streamed, sound for interactive objects is completely loaded into memory)

Memory leak:
Causes frame rate drops
Cause has not yet been determined.
Occurs rarely. Can be fixed by leaving the map and re-entering.
Is with one reason why some maps are being revised.

Yes, very cool.
Only problem is the shadows... they make all the characters look like they are floating above the playing field. ;)
