Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd keep everyone informed.  I'm darned busy at the moment with class and whatnot so I've been out of touch.  I'll probably be just as bad till the end of the semester...my last semester *sniff*

Anyways...just thought I'd let everyone know that beta testing  on BWO is about 50% completed.  Things are coming along...give it some time and the campaign will be complete.

Congrats on your upcoming graduation, IceFire.

And it's very cool that you guys are almost done.

We're trying to trim it down, but right now it's about 2.1 gigabytes.

Mine is 311mb...lots of source and redundancy files in there.  BWO's actual download should be small with some extra options.

Well, i am glad it is nearly finished, i just hope it isn't required to have the FSOpen installed to run it......it always crashes on mine and the shiny stuff never works.....the graphics are good enough for me as default

By the way, I was lying.

The actual folder size of the .zip's I have on my hard drive (I kept everything though, and the changes that came afterwards)

161mb

Yes it's needs FS-open because of some new sexps

most graphic things can be turned off

oh well, i guess i won't be playing this campaign then.

because it crashes with all graphics on or off.

I can't believe it's finally happening. :) Btw Hellraiser, don't worry about that too much. FSO is becoming more stable every day, and I'm sure we can work out a solution for you eventually.

well, if it helps, it was alot more stable then the current version available, now it isn't.

I can't progress onto the first mission. (after the last training mission) It just causes a CTD...or was it an error message, i was rather pissed at it crashing EVERY time.

By the time we're done FSOpen will be stable :D

On a single play through you get 30 missions about.  The second time through its once again going to be roughly 30 missions but almost half will be new...unless you make the same choices again...
