I just wanted to take a minute to update everyone on beta, and what all has been done. Our vision of beta has changed quite a lot since we started this project back in November. Since we’re dealing with 25 year old code, a complete overhaul has basically been required to get the game up and running properly.
When we we say, “everything is different,” we mean it. Almost every single function has been altered in some way. The goal for this is to make everything not only easier to add to in the future, but also to just make everything far more efficient. There are bugs that have been in every version of Vampire Wars that we have fixed, and quite a few of them.
Unfortunately for you guys, the more we change, the longer things take. We currently have on MAJOR thing to finish before we open the doors: Saving clandiscs to the player files. Once this is complete, we’ll open the doors and let everyone go HAM on the testing. I know a lot of you guys have been in limbo because all of the VW muds either closed or suck, and I just wanted to thank all of you guys who have stuck around and are going to be testing the game and supplying feedback.
