Slap City 0.8.4

11 June 2018

General
-Added a new stage, Jungle Zone. Sharp spears come out of the ground, and there's a hole in the middle.
-Stefan Hurtig is a programming god and a hero. He did actual HUNDREDS of code optimizations.
-You can now pummel a grabbed opponent with the Grab button. (You may also use Attack, Strong and Special like before.)
-Edgerolls no longer go off ledges on the opposite end of small platforms
-Resolved an old glitch that caused characters to lose an unnatural amount of momentum in the air if no direction was held (was most noticeable in Fishbunjins' down throw)
-Teching is no longer free (them being free was unintended), trying to tech now gives you a 20 frame tech window plus a 20 frame non-tech window before tech inputs will be accepted again

-Fixed issue where doing certain moves would snap characters to platforms
-Fixed issue where Crystal Targets would leave static effects behind if quitting while effects were still playing
-Game now might ignore trigger input from GameCube controllers that have had their springs removed, but who knows? ("I don't have any such controllers, so I can't really verify." @sinxtanx in the #bug-reports channel of our discord if you do and it didn't work)
-Changed the song of the Turnip Corp. stage. You can still select the old song through music selection.

============
Explanations
============

Ittle Dew:
The sweetspot (underside) of Ittle's Air strong no longer kills at 0 damage uncharged, but still deals as much knockback as before at around 70 damage and up. The window of its active frames was also reduced, which barely makes a difference on the weak hit, but does slightly reduce the horizontal range (especially behind Ittle) on the downwards swing. The next patch will see Ittle's Fair no longer being safe on block.

Masked Ruby:
There are no changes on Ruby this patch, just fixing mistakes in the animation durations for now.

The mobility of Jenny's recovery was further increased since it's fairly slow and doesn't have a hitbox. Her Fair was also buffed at high damages since we felt it wasn't really a move to be feared anymore since 0.7. Similarly to throws and some Strong attacks, the DI multiplier on Fair was also reduced so the opponent doesn't instantly die if they hold Down and doesn't survive to really high damages if they hold Up.

Jenny Fox:
The mobility of Jenny's recovery was further increased since it's fairly slow and doesn't have a hitbox. Her Fair was also buffed at high damages since I felt it wasn't really a move to be feared anymore since 0.7. Similarly to throws and some Strong attacks, the DI multiplier on Fair was also reduced so the opponent doesn't instantly die if they hold Down and doesn't survive to really high damages if they hold Up.

Ultra Fishbunjin 3000:
Fishbunjin continues his careful un-nerfing, this time with the focus on making his Nair more of a combo tool again, however reducing the potential of Fair to combo into itself with its weak hit. I think moves that combo safely and infinitely into themselves regardless of opponent DI are boring, which was the reason Nair was nerfed in the first place (albeit too hard - I apologize again for that patch). Also, his Ftilt and Dtilt are faster now so he can better keep up with the faster characters. His Dthrow was also fixed and now goes the same distance regardless of input, and will only be a KO throw if used near the edge.

Princess Remedy:
Remedy's Ftilt wasn't different enough from her Jab, so it has a longer reach now, which she needs as the slowest character. To alleviate her low horizontal mobility though, her Uspecial is now notably faster than her running speed, although it still has a startup and landing lag of its own. The idea isn't to make her able to dance in and out with aerials, but rather give her more tools and let her catch up with other characters more easily. She can float out and Dair people much faster now, but relying too much on her Uspecial on-stage can easily put her in a bad spot if she's knocked away with no fuel left.

Business Casual Man:
People suggested that BCMan should lose money if he's hit out of taunt, which makes sense, so here is the change. Interrupting his taunt is signified by a unique sound and visual effect, but only happens after he has actually made the $50 off the taunt.
