out of curiosity Kalahn but any "rough" idea how far along beta4 is? We're all quite patient (sp?) but just curious as you've given us a few different time frames Smile No rush, no hurry as the best code comes without time restraints last I knew.

Looks like Kal is having a lot of real life stuff going on these days. Beta3 is immortal logins only on Feb 17th i think it is. Of course, you have the beta 3 source and if worst case comes and Dawn S is majorly delayed, you can use beta3 as your game base for a while by commenting out the code stopping player logins. But if you make a lot of changes and Dawn S finally does get released, its gonna be a real pain to do the changes again in the final Dawn S code. Right now its taking about a month seems like for each edition of dawn. We have Beta4 and RC to go yet before DAWN Official S. So, maybe May/June before you see the final code. Hope its sooner but real life can be demanding at times. My advice, take it or leave it, is just hang on and maybe Kal will have more time for DOT again soon.

completely understandable, production on Pyre went to a near standstill for a few weeks about a month back becasue I was just sorta burnt out and had RL stuff going on.

I'd hope for an earlier release as well but as I said to Kal, no pressure Very Happy Good coding takes a good coder, great coding takes a good coder, time, and a buglist Wink

ok just checking but unless I"m mistaken our beta3 is about to expire in like 22 mins (central time).... Hope everything is ok for Kal and I'm glad I don't have players yet.

Open up the 1.69s-beta3 source, open version.h, and comment out
Code:
#define DAWN_STATIC_BETA_RELEASE
#define DAWN_STATIC_BETA_RELEASE_EXPIRY_DATE (1167436800 + 50*24*60*60 -1)


(e.g., do this:)
Code:
/*
#define DAWN_STATIC_BETA_RELEASE
#define DAWN_STATIC_BETA_RELEASE_EXPIRY_DATE (1167436800 + 50*24*60*60 -1)
*/

Man, i vanish for a bit and come back and STILL no next step in the version S process? I am a patient person but am curious now...
Kal can you tell us whats up with you? Are you gonna be able to get back to dawn stuff any time soon? I am using the code with the time limit disabled but hate to mod anything in the code much if something new is coming out in the foreseeable future. If your way too busy right, can you tell us that so that we are no longer expecting any events for the foreseeable future?
Well, hope your alright Kal. Hope to see you on the forums sometime soon hopefully.
Thanks,
Watcher
