ok for those of you who are dying for an MT progress update:

I have just finished fredding the last mission of the campaign.  This is not to say that i have finished fredding all of the missions, but it isn't to say i haven't either.  But the last one of the campaign is done. :ha:

ok seriously.  

I did just finish fredding the final campaign mission.  I have gone in order (pretty much), with the exception of some loops, and a few missions that i am thinking about the particulars on.  i would say that i have about the equivalent of 10 missions of work left to do.  This does not mean that the missions are finished....but it does mean that we can end phase one of fredding and start on phase 2, which should go much faster than phase one.  After phase 2, we can start with the voices.  I'll be handling that as well.  So prime your vocal chords...MT missions may very well be entering the home stretch soon.

There is still alot of work to be done on the MOD as a whole, but the gang is slowly coming back online (metaphorically) and getting back to work on it.  I am seriously hoping for a summer release date.  That may a bit optimistic, but with the progress rate we have had, it will almost definately be in 2005.

So, are you guys close enough to completion to make an estamated guess on a possible release date/month?



And we haven't just been dying for an MT progress report, we have been dying for the MT campaign. :p
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

More than likely, unless SW takes an extended honeymoon, it'll be before or during the Summer. If he takes an extended honeymoon, though, expect 2007. ;)

The man speaks the truth, we're getting close to completion fast. To tell the truth, I think the area where we're further behind is cutscenes... But I plan to start to correct that soon.
Probably away. Contact through email.

That we can't give yet, but when time comes we will give release date and it will be (locked release date so we can't miss it

actually we will finish the thing and then say that we will be releasing in two weeks...just so that we can release it a month late and call it on time as far as HLP time is concerned.

Cutscene?!?!?:eek2:
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

and they friggin ROCK!!!!!  I've seen the first one in it's entirety, and it amazing.  The second as well.....amazing stuff.  I won't tell you how many there are, but just reading the direction for them.....they are masterful.  I think styxx designed them, and did the directing for them.  his concepts are very professional, and seconde only to his sense of cinematography.  They are beautiful to look at from an FS2 standpoint, and nothing short of amazing from a technical standpoint.  You'd may as well bow to him now, and call him Your Magesty.

And yeah, cutscenes, more than one. We have some good video time done already, but there's lots to do yet. I posted some previews a long time ago, they should be buried somewhere on these forums.

Nah... we're having the coders set it up so that the cutscenes will be streamed from MT's servers on the internet when you get to the cutscenes, And to make things real easy, they'll be in .rm format, since everyone uses real player...

AGH!  NO!

Please tell me you're joking... :shaking:

I'd rather download the whole thing in one go anyway.  Streaming cutscenes = bad. :no:
