I updated lastnight. I loved this already, but this obviously makes it better. The quicker pathing makes a huge difference. I kind of miss the combat screen, but no big deal. Anyway, thanks again for such a good game.

Helvetica will treat you good if you take time to understand her.

Thanks for the support! I removed the combat preview screen due to people asking for a clearer display as well as faster combat. The information was somewhat helpful but in the end I think it's smoother without it.

Please be sure to tell me here what you would like to see in the next release. Most things in 1.2 were based on feedback from the community.
