It does seem pretty quiet these days... I have no idea why what appears to be the sudden change.

Hi -

I've been conducting various runs on beta 5 every weekend. Since the changes have been implemented with all the fixes from beta 4 and prior releases, I've just been combing for any other potential problems.

The codebase 1.69s beta 5, seems pretty solid. Havent found any bugs yet.

Kal, maybe more people will return to dawn and use it more if the following could be done:

1st, Maybe do THE official release of the S codebase to the public. Naturally give it a few more weeks of this beta but seriously think about showing that its really still a ACTIVE codebase. The Dawn Home page indicates that R was the last release around 5+ years ago. When i first signed on to Dawn's home page, that nearly made me leave. There was no indications that I saw that anything had happened for many years. My first thought was "is this codebase dead?" but then fortunately, i signed on the forums and saw that betas were going.

Secondly, maybe since nothing new has been on the homepage for so long, people maybe saying that this mud has been abandoned. Unfortunately muds in general are losing ground to graphical games. So no news on the home page is a possible reason for lack of interest here.

Just my thoughts. I want to see Dawn revived and lots of users again too. Its the very best mud code base out there IMHO.

Well Watcher, that has been addressed now. Kal posted a update on the home page. Nicely done Kal. Maybe it will bring in some new blood. The more people testing vS beta 5, the better.

Kal, I have one suggestion though, maybe you could change vS beta 5 code to eliminate the Immortals only time limit. I know everyone can change it if they know how, but if you get new people, that hard coded immortals only allowed to logon limitation will be a deterrent to them trying it out since as far as i know, that limit has activated in the beta 5. Or has it? Its been a while since i modded, for testing purposes only, that limit off of my copy. Heh.

If you have already recoded the beta 5 code to grant more time or have eliminated the limitation, well ignore this suggestion.

As for the vS beta 5 code, its looking good. I have yet to break it. Don't get much time for testing as i once had though.

Keep up the great work Kal!
