Even though life can slow progress, I'm confused as to how Woo (creator of Inferno) has so much free time to always respond to the forum and do work on Inferno. Is it impossible for BWO to have the same situation?
Woo isn't me or Ace...or BlackDove :)

As Woo said himself, he doesn't have a social life , unlike the BWO people, who do spend more time with family and friends (or getting drunk at late-night pubs :P).

At what point do we start throwing the words '3d Realms' and 'Duke Nukem Forever' at these guys?

This campaign has been in development since before the millennium.  My guess is that it will never see the light of day.

Funny how no one reads threads asking for some help on the campaign, even when they give away the status of it.

That means that SA22C is probably wrong when saying it won't be released.

Feel free to do so at any given time. 'Elite 4', anyone?

Folks...let me say this as briefly as I can.  BWO has been in development a long time yes...but part of that time was spent putting together a very detailed plan as to what was going to happen, what steps need to be taken, and how the story and missions are laid out.  Lets assume the worst case scenario and we run out of steam...if there are enough talented developers willing to step in...the campaign could still be finished because the plan is still in pretty good shape.

Progress is made slowly...but the team isn't exactly aimless and bumbling about not sure what to do.  There is a plan...we will follow it.  Some day this will be finished.  I hope its sooner than later. Every time we make progress the whole thing comes together so much more.  I know some of you folks are anxious to get your hands on it and play the thing through.  I wish you could right now...but it isn't ready.  Not just yet.

...and I'll make it blunt, for those complaining that this campaign isn't being released you can be my guest in volunteering to UV map and convert the HTL ships.

Hell if you're eager enough and do it fast enough I'll single-handedly do the final mission pass and have it done and out by christmas.

If, heaven forbid, you run out of steam, I'll pick up what you guys leave. BWO, along with all the time and effort you guys have put in deserves to be released. IMHO, I'd rather have a perfect later release than a buggier, less well-designed earlier release...

Here's some more steam to keepy you going:

Let me say this even more briefly: FEATURE CREEP. :p Wasn't BWO originally a ten-mission, no-mod campaign? :D

(Not that I blame you one little bit.  ST:R has been feature creeping since 2002. :))

Yup, if it wasn't for HTL we'd be done with the mods and moving on.
