Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Well not exactly complaining but since you asked in such a scarcastic tone...
You waited till someone asked BEFORE you posted the update saying impossible for a may release. I have waited so long, another two months woundn't kill me, but would just like to get this off my chest.

And yes, please CONTINUE to keep us updated  :)

*please don't kill me  :p*

We will keep you updated. Thing is, majority of recent developement has been on the coding/scripting side of things and while it's cool stuff, it's not exactly something we can show pretty screenshots of.

Unless we take that code and make a matrix-style screensaver out of it  :P

I don't suppose you could make a blog post about the cool coding stuff? I'm not illiterate, so I can read!  :drevil:

I've been meaning to make one for a while. :) Problem is that it's really hard to explain what all the changes mean.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Ah ok I'm sorry, I'll eat my words.  :lol: *nom nom nom nom* :ick: :lol:
Even though I don't mind waiting another month for a good game with multiplayer, I'd rather not be updated for two weeks and have it a week earlier!!!

Sorry, not trying to be a dick

That's not how it works. You get it when it's done. You get updates when there's sufficient stuff that can be shown on pics/videos to make one. Simple as that.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Yep. Updates don't take that much time. Even full trailers don't take an enormous amount of time. The issue is balancing updates so that they have lots of fresh new stuff rather than getting people bored of seeing yet another picture of the same old ships.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Ah well, thanks kara!!
Correction: I'd rather not see updates for 2 weeks and have the game half a day earlier!!!  :lol:

 
Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Less regular updates mean that people check this site less regurarly, so some people won't notice the release 3 days after it has been released. If you have an update every day, and therefore have people checking every day, the servers will probably blow up in the first 5 seconds of the release.

If you release the file as a torrent, which iirc is what btrl was, then problem solvered.
Or something.

Both HLP and Game-Warden went down due to increased traffic the day we released the BtRL demo. Admittedly we were host rather large video files locally at the time.

Nope.

Still waiting on a few things we can't give an ETA for so there's no sensible way to change the ETA.

May 2010?!

Hooray!  :P

As seen on the first page, I was right.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
The team have decided that we want Narvi to be right. So we're delaying release until May 2010.

Form an orderly queue to thank him. I'll be in the booth at the side of the line selling cheap melee weapons.


Seriously though. Congratulations on proving why we should never ever give a potential release date ever again. Cause smug bastards turning up to self congratulate their ability to predict we'd fail to reach them always boosts team morale.

I'll take a broad sword and a spiked mace, please. Dip it in poison, please.  :P

Joke aside, i never thought i would say that, but i'm happy ( kinda ) that you guys aren't release this month.
