New Testing Release! v0.3.2 "For Frickin' Finally"
« on: February 21, 2006, 01:29:30 am »
Well, two days late, we've got a testing release. I'm calling it "For Frickin' Finally", since it's 2:12am, and whitelynx is jut finishing it up. We've got a quiz tomarrow at 9:00am, and this is just busting our humps horribly. Fact is, the windows build system needed a complete overhaul... something we were unaware of. We've been working on this for 8 hours straight today alone, and we're just finishing it up. Yeah, fun times at coder central.

That being said, we've got it. We've tested it on two systems. If it's horribly borked, and steals your pie, don't come crying to us. You'll get a laptop in the face.

Also, as an aside, our performance has gone up a tad. On whitelynx's lapop (Nvidia 6600 Go PciE) he gets a range of FPS from 570 to 120. Yeah, that's with about 51,673 polys on the screen. Suck it, Doom 3.

Ok, ok, so we have crappy textures, crappy models, no real lighting, etc. Shut up, we know.

Also, of note, we've trmmed the installer to 30.6 megs! That's down from 76 of the orriginal release! The most recent release is only 28 megs, but we've added many more megs of content... like a working menu! w00t!

Ok, I'm going to bed now. Testers, go test. *bows*

Yeah, I was fixing to post on that, but I figured morgul was a noob.

Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

Actually, I knew I didn't post a link. Thing is, I went to bed before it was uploaded to the site. I told whitelynx to edit my post and put the link in. He decided to make me look like a noob, so I ran with it.
