Door Kickers Alpha 7!

2013_12_21_15_56_12

Ho ho ho, kick the door for Santa Claus!

Happy Holidays, everyone! But what would vacation be without a new build of Door Kickers? Alpha 7 is out! And with it, your greatest missions can now be immortalized forever - replays are in.

Does the game look different? New trooper models! New animations! Smoother and more natural movement. And now that we have the system in place, you can expect more detail to be added to the characters, and new animations are waiting their turn to be added. For now, you can truly kick the door ;)

Back to the replay system, a few things to note:

  • replays are saved and stored in Documents\KillHouseGames\DoorKickers\replays
  • you can share the replay files with anyone – send them the file
  • the last replay is kept; if you want to safeguard a particular cool one manually press the View/Save button at mission end screen

But let’s test this into practice :) Before Santa comes, send us a (successful) replay file for Level 43 – A Question of Time. Just mail the .rpl file to replaycontest@inthekillhouse.com.
We’ll centralize them, share them with the public – and the one we like best will win one of the fancy trooper portraits.

Speaking of which, have you seen the new trooper portraits? Convenient store link http://inthekillhouse.com/buy/ <wink wink>
What is New and Important in Alpha 7 of Door Kickers:

Features:
- Replays!
- Major improvement to enemy AI. They will seek cover. They will move around. Even we can’t predict what their doing.

    Finaly, time to show the world who their messing with!

  3. How do you save a replay file and upload it?

    • Mihai Gosa

      Replays are saved and stored in Documents\KillHouseGames\DoorKickers\replays
      You can share the replay files with anyone by sending them the .rpl file.

      If you want to save a replay just press the View/Save button at mission end screen.

      • I found where the .rpl files were, I was just looking for a way to change the format to something that could be uploaded to YouTube or something. I ended up using Fraps and then converting it to a smaller format.

  4. Hi, I purchased the game in Gamersgate, but the Alpha 6 version.,. how do I update it to Alpha 7?

    • there is a slight delay in gamersgate updates, but you also received a Steam key, you can update instantly if you activate on Steam
