I'm making a sticky thread to keep you guys updated on when we plan to release another beta. Please do not use this thread to discuss features or report bugs.
Since Brad has been on a business trip all week, we're going to wait until next week to do another update.
We're planning on doing an update this Thursday, barring technical problems.
Beta 6 is up!
Hi guys, sorry about the lack of news, but I've been sick with a bad upper respiratory infection since last Thursday and today is my first day back. So we're not going to update the beta this week. I'll let you know when I find out when we're doing the next update.
No beta today either. I spent most of the day fixing bugs I ran into while testing, and tweaking the code to automatically design ships for players, so the end result is that more time was spent coding than testing. Rather than throwing a largely untested beta at you, we're going to wait a little bit longer.
Hey guys, sorry for an additional delay, but Brad went home sick today so we're not going to put up another beta. Also, we're looking into the issue some people are having where downloading the update from earlier this week seems to have corrupted their installation. If you updated to Beta 4C and now get a crash when trying to start a new game, please e-mail your install logs to email@example.com. The files can be found in Program Files\Stardock\SDCentral\Installed. The files for Twilight are named gc2_Twilight.log and gc2_Twilight.xml, and you should send in the files for the other modules if you installed any updates for those at the same time.
I'll let you know tomorrow if we will be trying to put up the update then.
Not this week. We've all been swamped and the servers are getting pounded from the people downloading Sins anyway.
Next week is Valentine's Day so there will be no update next week either so that no one has to work late.
As far as I know, we'll keep to our standard release on Thursday schedule, so the next update would be on Thursday 02/21/08.
