If you have any issues, use this thread as it's the one I will be haunting for a few days before Christmas Eve: http://fpscrforum.
As long as your levels do not contain five hundred trees or five hundred characters, you should get a good stable and performing experience. Some store items and custom media will certainly misbehave, but we are going through them now making corrections as we go.
The plan in 2015 will be to polish this version, remove any rough edges and refine the look and feel.
My thanks to all the internal alpha testers, artists, coders and helpers who made V1.009 possible, and after my brief festive break, I plan to return with a fresh brain and fully charged batteries.
Until then, enjoy your mince pies and mulled wine, and I look forward to bringing you more code in 2015!
