Looking Ahead

I've prepared this week's build a bit early. It includes a refined version of the new look ahead mouse controls. Look ahead based mouse controls are the new default. Give it a try and be sure to adjust the new look ahead mouse sensitivity to your liking. Smash true to it's namesake now also pushes players relative to the hit point. I'm also thinking of giving smash a target only proximity sensor allowing it to do reduced damage and push for non-direct hits against the targeted player. I'll be spending the rest of the week on the mobile version. See you all during the playtest.
