There were tons of positive feedback on Beats 1.4b as well as numerous requests and suggestions for a new release. While we are already working on the next major release (Beats 1.5b), here’s a small update with a few minor fixes and tweaks that were most demanded based on Beats 1.4b feedback:

Beats 1.4.1bChangeset [233]

  • orientation-based main menu layout
  • re-added adjustable Accuracy Level setting
  • reverted accuracy weightings to 1.3b’s scheme
  • fixed multi-touch install restriction?
  • fixed minor notetype parsing issue
  • fixed a few odd crashes

With Beats 1.4.1b, the installation/disappearing-from-the-Market issue some users were reporting should be fixed now and the old 1.3b accuracy level setting is back, allowing you to tweak accuracy difficulty to your heart’s desire once more!

Oh, and for those who didn’t notice, the new demo video is finally up!


(I will probably post a video of me trying to full-combo “Blood Lullaby” on Medium/Hard later)

As always, if you find any other pressing/immediate bugs or would like to help out with testing (particularly the lag and touch-screen issues some users are reporting), please PLEASE contact me (Keripo) via IRC or MSN (see the About page). The developers of Beats (myself and Matt) only own one physical Android device to test things on (my Samsung Captivate), so testers would be greatly appreciated (so will Donations to buy an old Android phone off eBay)!

Enjoy the quick update!
