I’m alive!

September 10, 2006

I know that a lot of people are wondering about the project’s status, since I haven’t updated the site since July. Well, I gave out some tiny bits and pieces of information in the comments, but not everyone reads those.

The short answer to your questions: I haven’t made progress on the hacking-side of the project since the last news but I will take it up again soon. In the meanwhile the script has been revised again, so it will be an even better experience to play the game 😉

The long answer (filled with boring information about my life, you have been warned ;)):

During the last weeks my main problem was that my Notebook on which I am usually working (ok, always) began to drive me insane. Not only has it tons of little defects which make it unbearable to work on it (overheating -> random shut downs, just to name the worst thing) but it got slower and slower and slower. Before a romhacker, I am an avid gamer, but I could no longer play recent games as well. Just looking at the notebook annoyed the hell out of me.

So I decided to get a new PC to end the misery. I spent most of August working to get the money for it and finally ordered it two weeks ago. Since I must have the most rotten luck on this planet my order was messed up two times until the parts finally arrived this Friday. There were some problems again (one of my two RAM modules is broken -_-), but the thing is running now. So, I finally have a lightning fast computer again to work on. If anyone is interested in it here are the main specs:

  • Core 2 Duo E6600 (2x 2,40Ghz)
  • Asus P5W DH Deluxe Mainboard
  • Ati Radeon X1900XT 512MB
  • 1GB RAM (2 if one module wasn’t broken)

With that obstacle out of the way I can theoretically resume work on the project anytime now. Currently I am still a little busy though. I have to finalize some annoying paperwork for university (I am starting to study in October) and there is some trouble with my Clan. I am Co-Leader of a Dawn of War Clan, and since the game recently annoyed the hell out of us due to it’s horrible balance there were some major crisis to overcome. Right now we are reconstructing things, propably we’ll create a new Squad for the game Company of Heroes which is going to be released in one week (We all participated in the BETA test). As a leader I am pretty much occupied with that right now.

I’ll definitely let you know when things get moving once again.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who writes comments on the project, your continued support really keeps me going.

Thank You!
