Great news. Thanks for your exceptional efforts in bringing this about - a heroic achievement deserving of recognition in Slitherine's Hall of Fame.

Good news, but why is it tucked away in a subforum of a subforum?

Fantastic, Dan, and I'd like to echo Ironclad's sentiments - an heroic effort, I hope that both the fan-base and Slitherine fully appreciate all your hard work.


Best Wishes

Mike

Thank you all.

Please do mind that even if most of the FoG(U) was a solitary effort, a big part of WFS, OFE and OFL data work was made by Richard (including all the scenarios which were made entirely by him), and that all of FoG(U)'s tens of new maps were provided by Lysimachos and stockwellpete.

Parked in here until Slitherine will make the official announcement on their website.

In which case, many thanks also to Richard, Lysimachons and StochwellPete.

But I think you remain, Dan, the star of the show.


Best Wishes

In this case, I suspect "soon" may be up to a year from now... ;)

But I'll be happy the day it comes nevertheless! :)

On Friday 29th January we've prepared the Gold Master build for Windows and MacOS for Slitherine. Both the live and the beta FoG(U) servers were set to use this rev 1024 GM1b version.

The FoG(U) v2.4.1024 GM1b (mod) build contains the Unity 5 engine upgrade, the new sound cache system (which brings an increase in performance in between 10% and 35%), the new automatic deployment system (which even in its current almost skeletal form seems to be better than the old FoG(RB)'s one) and various fixes and optimizations.

Other than that, the release date is to be officially announced by Slitherine, and not by me.

Cheers,
dan

Am I right in thinking that "Oath of Fealty" (release date TBD) only just been added to the Shop's "Coming Soon" section? Could this be a significant development or am I suffering delusions after all these years of waiting? :?

Nobody knows, nobody knows... They say, that if you go far out in the woods at a night with a full moon and listen really carefully, you'll hear the sound of Field of Glory (Unity) coming... ;)

Er, a while ago, FOG jumped to the head of the New Releases list at both the Matrix & Slitherine fora. Today is Release Thursday. Ergo...

But now the listings are gone.

Not still another delay? :?
