Rathmor project w/ Ex teaser demo!!

Thursday, December 27th, 2012 by Holy at www.swordofmoonlight.net

Exit: Merry xmas etc.

Alas a December release is not in the cards for SomEx.dll (ver. 1.1.1.5) but you can try out a new demonstration of a Sword of Moonlight game in the works tentatively entitled “Rathmor” incorporating a “nightly build” of the update.

What happened? Well everything is ready. Except a last minute performance killing bug in the GNU (for Win32) libintl library reared its head. A workaround will be found before what will hopefully be an early New Year’s 2013 release.

The demo is a standalone game, however it includes all original artwork (so that you will not have to download anything much that already comes with SOM.)

Rathmor’s demo does not use libintl. But a second bug (one of SOM’s) can make the demo difficult for some users. Follow the “Forum Discussion” link below to obtain the 150MB (288MB expanded) download, information, and updates!

A bolt of blue appeared in the night sky!

Exit: And just like that,

November has been a year end bolt out of the blue for Ex. December will announce a major new release. There is going to be the usual laundry list of important fixes, but! First and foremost:

I am excited to be announcing we are finally going to be getting production ready “analog” controls, including mouse, functionality; and many, many, more analog inspired (unofficial) extensions for Sword of Moonlight!!

I thought we can celebrate with a WebGL presentation featuring the one and only Moonlight Sword! [and nooo it's not because February is retiring with this post.] And one more exclamation point… Enjoy!

Everyone’s heard of peer-to-peer nowadays, but did you know that P2P is steadily becoming the default way that cool stuff is done?

Speaking of stuff getting done. There was a new PalEdit demonstration added to the files earlier today. Source code included.

Rise from your grave~

Exit: And... we're back!

News Bulletin: I am back from the dead! Oh you had not heard? Well if you are wondering why the lull in posts for the last 2 or 3 months. It is because I have not been able to access the internet from home all thanks to the good people at WildBlue satellite internet (and the lax antitrust atmosphere and low bar for commercial accountability in the United States.)

All and all it was a very interesting ordeal to say the least. I was transported back to the heady days of 2001. Want to do something? Well if you can’t figure it out, then you will need a book for that. Maybe a few books even, and you better make time in your schedule for a lot of page flipping… especially on a mid summer day; books and fans, kind of like fire and water it turns out.
