Talking Re: Status Report

I can hear the begging and pleading from modders around the globe. You are their idol. Welcome is a much too weak statment. A LOT of people are very,very happy for you. KotB can use some help, for sure, if you become so inclined.

Seems like a big Co8 family re-union.
I wish CtB and Kalshane were back...

Yeah. Blue's lurked here recently, around the same time as Kalshane's latest post. So, while they may not be active, they are amongst us. I miss Blair, too.

I will certainly be around. I just re-installed TOEE and the gears are turning.

KoTB sounds great so far, so I can't wait.

Holy CRAP! I know you only by reputation, but everyone who still enjoys this game owes you a huge debt of gratitude, and I'm glad to actually have the chance to say so.

Re: Status Report

I'd like Phalzyr back too.

The secret-door-bug-workaround is clunky, unfortunately, but it does keep them in the game as proper secret doors, with DCs to be beaten by the search function etc. And thus far it seems to be working.

Re: Status Report

Well, welcome back Liv, didn't know you but you've kept all our interest in ToEE from wandering. Glad you're back, and hope you can stick around to see KotB finished.

The progress seems to be going great, nice job with the secret door workaround. By the way, I meant it takes them a couple years just to 'make' a game/mod. They already have the idea, while you guys took about the same amount (almost) of time to both get the idea together, collect staff, start the project, work on another persons engine(not easily modded either!), and still be able to get around bugs and blocks from the hard coding. It's amazing really, and I'm glad that I came here when I did, I hit the climax of developement it has seemed.

Glad to know my little mod attempts made some difference.

KotB makes anything I ever did seem like child's play.

Seriously, it is amazing.

When this sucker gets released I think it will be a huge success.

Ok, the beta has just been patched with the major bugs fixed and the Secret-Door-bug-workaround added for testing.

Re: Status Report

Things have been a little slow from my perspective due to work, but

- Liv has created a secret-door fix, mentioned elsewhere in the open forum

- The KotB art department are going great guns

OK, Ted, I have no status in the community to ask this, but...

You had a "modgasm" three weeks ago so...

Damn, man! How long do those things last? Throw the community a bone!

Well we have finally set some times for recording the voices (end of this month) so release not tooo long after that. I am just putting the touches to the endgame, and we have to assemble the huge number of new portraits that are being created.

WELL before Christmas, i hope!

Well before Christmas will be here in no time! I for one am happy to wait until "The Shining One" feels it's ready.

Great job you guys.

Hey, Shiningted, if you need another to do some reading and recording, I'm willing to try. If you need another voice.

Well, I am working on the ending and tidying up (still) - a lot of work yet to do to get everything just right (no sense having a room full of level 5 characters if they don't put up a decent fight) but I am still hopeful of a pre-Xmas Demo release, yah

Re: Status Report

I actually found this forum again, amazing. Sorry I took off on you all, school is hectic for me, 1.5 years to go and I'm outta highschool and on to college.

The mod is looking great though, and it sounds like there's been tons of breakthroughs while I was gone. I hope that this will actually put ToEE back on the market for gamers.

My guess is they know what they're doing and what they need. There's no point in rushing the publication. Please take your time guys, and do it properly, we'll wait! and also take a well-earned Christmas & New-Year break.

What an sensible fellow you are, Spellman

There will be an official announcement (and I mean official Co8 announcement, not a 'Ted hopes for the best' moment) in the next couple days.

I agree, when "The Shining One" says it's ready, it's ready. We shall wait and bask in the glow of your shininess. (puts on sunglasses due to glare) heh heh

Awesome. I have withheld from rereading the module from my childhood for this release. Looks like I will get to read it soon after I play this crpg adaptation. Cheers!

Damn, great job on KotB & CMF guys. I stopped checking in 3 years ago assuming that ToEE modding would die along with Troika. Sure glad I was wrong.

Any clue on how long after the demo the full KotB module will be released?

There is no exact release date for the full version at the moment - if we knew it, we would have posted it already. Right now we're working hard to bring you the KotB demo with the given release date (Jan 29th) in mind, so I don't think that anyone from the KotB team will predict the release date of the full version at the moment. Please be patient and wait for the upcoming releases - by the way, don't be misled by the word "demo" in our upcoming release; despite the fact that it indeed is a demo version, it's sure to keep you occupied for a good while.

Yes, although it's Jan 29th.

It seems all my Christmases are coming at the same time. First I get to play a souped up version of TOEE, and a week later KOTB!

Great job, guys!
