Controller Issues

Hello everyone,
We are aware that some players are experiencing some new and odd issues with a variety of controllers. It may be due to changes in our engine, Game Maker, or some of our own updates in the code, or even external factors. We are trying to determine exactly what's going on, but it takes time when the issues are inconsistent and difficult to reproduce.
If you are experiencing problems with controller detection, please compile your system specs and any external hardware you have connected, as well as any anti-virus apps you may be running to help us determine exactly why this may be occurring in such an uneven way. Any information we can gather will be extremely helpful in fixing these problems.
We are addressing this as quickly as we can - apologies for any frustration and thank you for bearing with us.

Official Gun Names

The gun names used on the wikia are mostly incorrect. The manual that comes with the physical copies of HLD as well as the collectors edition name each gun, and the wikia doesn't appear to have the official names.
Theres:
Pistol
Zeliska
Blunderbuss (not shotgun)
Diamond Shotgun
Railgun (not rifle)
Impact Railgun (not just railgun)
also the manual says "special grenade" but Roly Poly is way better
lol i dont mean to make trouble on the wikia and im not trying to disrupt what you've got going on here, it's just that these are the official names from the manual.

18/10/2016 - 'Next Update' - Framerates and Gearbits

Hi everyone,
We have narrowed down the elusive framerate issue: it occurs if your computer is using a 144Hz monitor and Vsync is On. This is due to a limitation of the engine.
If you are using a 144Hz monitor and notice framerate issues, you can try these options:

Switch your monitor to 60Hz mode and set Vsync to On in the game menu
Set Vsync to Off in the game menu
Set Vsync to Alternate (may not work) in the game menu
To change your Vsync mode, from the main menu or pause menu go to Settings -> Vsync.
Changelog:

fixed exploit which allowed the player to gather infinite gearbits
note: because of the way saves are handled, you may see extra gearbits drop from bosses you have already defeated in a pre-patch save
fixed issue where healthkits would be reset on death in co-op mode
fixed issue where west boss body would be duplicated
potential fix for endlessly looping spider walk sound
added new vsync mode: 'Alternate'
To switch to the 'next_update' branch:

Right click on Hyper Light Drifter in your Steam Library
Click on "Properties"
Click on the "BETAS" tab
Click the drop down menu and select the 'next_update' branch
Click the "close" button and your game should start updating immediately
If you notice any problems, please send an email to support@heart-machine.com detailing your issue, including your hardware specs and OS.
Once we're sure that the changes are stable, they will be moved into the main branch.

12/10/2016 - 60FPS Release

Hi everyone,
Many thanks to those of you who submitted bug reports that helped us fix remaining problems with our new update. After much public testing over the past weeks, we think it's time to put the 60fps build live.
In pushing this live we hope for more feedback related to performance. If you see that the game has any performance issues:

Try toggling the 'vsync' option in the settings menu.
Try switching to the 'fastcollision' branch, which has experimental performance changes.
And please send an email to support@heart-machine.com detailing the issue along with your hardware specs and OS. We appreciate reports about performance degrading or improving, as we are trying to gauge the viability of the 'fastcollision' changes.
We will continue to update with tweaks and fixes as we receive feedback.
If this build is disruptive for you and you want to go back to the stable 8/4/2016 build, you can do so by switching to the 'stable_30fps' branch.
To switch to a different branch:

Right click on Hyper Light Drifter in your Steam Library
Click on "Properties"
Click on the "BETAS" tab
Click the drop down menu and select the desired branch
Click the "close" button and your game should start updating immediately
Thanks again for your feedback. We'll be responding to feedback as quickly as possible.

10/10/2016 - More Sleuthing

Hi everyone,
We're still trying to narrow down why certain users are having framerate issues. We've created updates on both 'next_update' and 'fastcollision' that will enable you to toggle vsync from the menu. If you are having framerate issues, try setting vsync to off and let us know what happens. Please also make sure that forced vsync is not turned on in your graphics driver settings.
Changelog:

added vsync option to settings menu
fixed co-op issue where player 2's energy would reset when entering a new room
fixed invisible block in the south
potential fix for crash related to dashing and swapping weapons at the same time
potential fix for rare issue where boss rush checkpoints would not be set properly

08/10/2016 - Framerate Sleuthing

Hello folks,
After our Fast Collision beta, we received a number of reports from people who experienced increased performance, as well as some people who experienced a decrease in performance. Strangely, we have received performance complaints throughout the 60FPS beta from users whose machines should be up to spec.
We have created two separate builds to try to narrow down these framerate issues.
If you try 'next_update' and have framerate issues, switch to 'fastcollision' and send an email to support@heart-machine.com describing what happens, along with your hardware specs.
Additionally, if 'fastcollision' gave you framerate issues but the new 'next_update' build does not, please send us an email.
Please also let us know if you are using any graphics driver override settings, such as forced vsync.
Thanks for helping us figure this out.
