Coming Changes to the Website and Game Status

Lately, like the past three months or so, I've been telling people how I'm planning to release the game soon and also how I'm going to release the game. I'm still planning to. This website needs to be reorganized between movies, old games, and BOL. About BOL, right now I've having issues with Visual Studio adding extra unwanted dependencies. It's kind of a minor thing but I haven't quite figured out which options in the project properties needs changing.
Ok, so onto more interesting stuff. I went on a three hour bike ride yesterday and in the middle of that bike ride I decided to take out the camera and film some good clone action in a field. I'm not sure how good the sound is going to be since it was a little windy, but we'll see. Movie editing, filming, and cloning of me is a lot of fun and has been detracting from my computer time. But don't worry, it's still coming.


Edit: I've fixed all of the dependency/dll problems and the game now works on other computers. The server is also currently running. However, my upload speed is horrendously slow right now and I still want to change a few things anyway, so I'll update the download link tomorrow maybe.

What's going on

Right now this page is looking sad since it currently only has a few video test clips that are already found on the main page. Eventually, meaning soon, I'll have links here to my bigger projects, and in the little bit farther future I'll just post my videos here instead of on the homepage. I do have many more video clips to upload and a few more that just need editing but that will all have to wait until I get some more site-related issues fixed, finish some homework, and get BOL going.


Some Links of Movies I've worked on:
A Sword for the Immerland King Trailer
The Word

Connection Issues

Well, now when the client tries to connects it does successfully and then crashes for some unknown reason. Once I have this new problem fixed I'll upload the client and fix the links. And that's what's going on right now.

Almost Here

[Edit:] It's not ready for today. I got the client and server to talk to each other again but the character selection page isn't working as planned and it's still crashing randomly at a few points. Maybe tomorrow. [/Edit]

The game is almost ready! For alpha testing :) . I figured out that the client is sending the wrong thing to the server, which is in turn sending the wrong thing to the client, which is in turn crashing. But it's really not all that bad. I'll I have to do now is talk it over with them until they can agree.

In other news I made a new world map (I found it in a folder today, edited it a little, and then put it here). You can click on it to see the full thing. I've also figured out a working workaround for the whole not having models thing, which you'll find out later.

Something to Play/Test

[Edit 2: I'm sorry for people who downloaded it earlier but I found out at school today that I forgot to include some dlls. They are included now. If you want just the dlls you can ask for them either by commenting here or emailing me. ]

[Edit: It's done, you can download it here or at the link to the right. Disclaimer: This is not the game, this is was a test for importing terrain/plants/water. It won't snow at the beach in the actual game, terrain will be smoother, and other stuff... I probably know all the bugs you'll encounter but tell me anyway. Also, if for some reason this doesn't work for you tell me. ]

So a few minutes ago I received a phone call from Caleb begging for something to play. And, since I just so happen to be working on maps and new content I thought I'd finally put something up. This is an offline demo because I haven't gotten these maps onto the server yet. This is just a test client, missing many things but there are still all the dev/gm commands (If you want a list of them type "/help" in game). It hasn't been uploaded yet because the folder on my computer is about 3.5 gigs, so I'm still working on getting just a few maps in one folder and working. I'll update this post when it's up.
