A New Year, A New Resolume: 5.1.3 & 4.6.3

It's January 26 now this so it's probably too late to late to wish you all a happy new year, but, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

phpBB [video]

You know how it goes.

You think you know how this game works, and that you've got the level boss' attack pattern all figured out. You know his weak points, and all you need to do is wait for him to step left so you can shoot at that gap in his armor. Then, just as he reaches half health, he mutates and is back to full health. And he's full of new tricks.

The Arena 5.1 / Avenue 4.6 release is Resolume's Boss Fight. New features, new tricks, new workflows. You know, to keep you on your toes.

Hit that download!

Resolume Arena 5.0.3 and Avenue 4.5.3: Marathon

Update Friday April 29th

There we were, running our marathon. We were on a good pace and we felt like we were making good time. Then, disaster struck. We tripped on an untied shoelace and hit face first in the mud.

So, with our cheeks still blushing from the embarrassment and caked with mud, we give you Resolume 5.0.4.
The 5.0.4 release fixes three silly mistakes that snuck their way into 5.0.3.

Download here!

#6259 Midi Clock is broken
#6258 Clips don't play when opacity is at 0
#5797 Japanese font rendering.


The long distance runner's eyes lose their focus. He can't remember how long he has been running. All he knows his still has to go on. Sometimes he feels like he can't make it. Every step feels like lead and his feet feel like fire. Other times he catches new wind and he feels like he's soaring across the skies and leaps tall buildings in a single bound.

His eyes refocus. The finish line is not in sight yet. But he knows he's going to make it. And he's loving every step along the way.
