2019-11-20 (preview-171)

Buzz buzz!

Today brings in some big changes to the main menu! Clicking "New Hive" now shows a menu with game-specific options, mostly comprising of things that don't make sense to set per-game like "skip obstacles", but also including a couple of new options. The majority of these are things that I'd normally call cheats, but for now, I'm labelling them as "Find your own fun."

The settings menu has been broken up into a bunch of submenus, which should make stuff a bit easier to see/find. There's a new interface section that currently includes the "hide HUD" and "always show shortcuts" options, which makes a bit more sense than just dumping them into the video section.

All this stuff represents changes that I've had planned for a while, and which will serve as a stepping stone to other things I'm hoping to add before release (such as custom keybindings).

There are a few other misc changes as well, so check the changelog if you're interested. Note that this update will trigger a config file reset!
