I sort of went in a black hole for a while but am climbing back out...I posted some source and am putting regular updates to github.com/andrewschultz & I know I need to get back to 1 or 2 people here. Sorry for that.
But I was able to make a fix in Threediopolis that a tester--someone who's been on this board, I think suggested & I deferred as too hard. Turns out it wasn't.
I don't think I'll be able to respond to a testing cycle before IFComp, but if possible, I'd really like to have them to work on during IFComp so I keep my mind off looking for reviews. Thing is, though--the most likely candidates to test will (and should) probably be playing the IFComp games themselves. So I am thinking by end of year.
By the way, is there anything (hard or soft reasons) against us all splitting off our own threads for project updates as opposed to introductions? I would be really interested/receptive to see what other people have to say, and as long as we didn't spam (e.g. once a week) it might be a good way to help some people progress. I don't think intfiction has that, and though some of us have blogs/source control, it's still neat to have a thread. I gain a lot of inspiration just seeing what other people have done.
(Also I feel a bit tacky replying to myself in thi thread )
