The Cross-Update was an update for a lot of things that went live Friday the 13th this month. (Put this in the Newsletter!) It was named for being across two levels - the Fun Machine hub and the Consoles + Accessories hub. It consisted of many updates for many things that all started out separately but then were lumped into one big multiple-thing update. Things updated:
Fun Machine Hub
FM v2.3: Added custom built-in games and many new icons, fixed a bug, improved built-in menu, etc. MM v1.111: Added many new icons, fixed a bug. Cartridge: Added app disabling for Next/Previous, did something in Tools You Need. Manual v1.3: Removed Move DLC, updated many sections. Hub itself: Not technically part of the update, but the day after - did stuff for holiday season. Move Seats + Menu: Updated for built-in games. Main place: Added extra message. Evil Sentience easter egg area: Heavily decorated for Christmas complete with a special prize sticker, shown at right. I thought FC would appreciate it. Christmas themes for the FM and MM are in development and are almost done, slated for definite release next week.
GameExpo III Launch Collection: Updated for new cartridge update. Balloon Fight (Balloon Trip): Updated for newer cartridge design in general, fixed a bad bug. BDC: Fixed a lot of bugs. Dig Dug II Soundtrack: Updated for cartridge update. Xevious Soundtrack: Updated for cartridge update.
NeXBOX v1.503: Fixed startups not resetting, I think. Twin Ignis v1.2: Updated for Ignis I v1.2. Tried to fix Ignis I opening emissions emitting sideways, but it seems to be a permanent bug. (I guess the Twin Ignis doesn't matter since it isn't based on a T-Games console, but I list it because it was part of this update.) GameExpo Go: Improved cartridge slot, fixed bug that was disabling music.
Added the Universal Music App, a music app that will work for any console cartridge. Recommended for those who like to make copy-and-paste soundtracks.
Updated GE2, GE3, Quadratum, NeXT, Ignis II (see above note on Twin Ignis). I2: Added Overdrive spot. Rest: Added memory card spot. (GE2, Q, and GX, why u no put memory card in perfect grid?!) Added GX.
