Beta (meep!)

*sigh* I really suck at ETAs, don't I?

Well, the good news is that the beta is 95% done and ready. The bad news is that it's not 100%.

4% of that is battle-related and requires a lot of hair-pulling database work. I would use placeholder battles, but that sort of defeats the purpose of having a beta test. The last 1% is just cleaning up the folders so you don't have to download a 700MB+ sized file (yes, lots of unused graphics and music that will probably find its way into the game eventually).

When's the beta coming out, then? I want to try to make it before or during this weekend. I have no other plans until next week, and I'm hunkering down with coffee and croissants until it's done!


  1. That's good for me! I have work the next three days so I wouldn't be able to play it right away. *can't wait for beta*

  2. No worries, I'm patient.

    Database work all weekend? Hope you still have hair left on Monday...

  3. I definitely appreciate your patience!

    I ended up spraining my ankle Saturday morning, which made it a bit difficult to get things done at the pace I was planning. However, I'm still able to get things done and the to-do list is considerably smaller.
