Happy Holidays
« on: December 30, 2013, 03:33:21 pm »
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year everyone.  :)

We took a break for the past week or so as my family was very busy and I think others' were as well.  Some cool things are in the works, and should be ready very soon.  We are still packing in new features and improvements, and I'll let Neno decide when we should get things back online.

Initially there will be some testing with the small group that's here before we start spreading the word and posting the game around.  Like before, there will be an Auto-Updater, the client file, and a folder with dlls.  I will probably put in a piece of code this time forcing you to use the updater, because I realized that anyone could delete it and while the game will throw an error, it allows you to continue so we could remove it for development.  So in the future if the updater is missing, the game will not run. 

There is a new dll that you will see included called "cleanmem".  It should clear the memory the game was using after initially loading the game resources and when running on my laptop I noticed as high as a 100K drop in memory usage.  I don't know if this will help performance but will should try it for now because I was very impressed with how well it did its job. 

Have a great end to 2013 and a great start to 2014 everyone!  We'll keep you posted.
