Server Migration

Hey guys,

Our site will be down most likely on November 30th, including both the blog and the forums. It should be back on or after December 6th, I’ll let you know on the @CarnalSouls twitter if there are any delays during. Huge thanks to Crimson for helping us out with it despite how busy he is.

Hope everyone in the US had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Mid-November Update

Hey guys,

I apologise that it’s been slow since the last update. I’m sure you’re aware that a lot’s happened in that time, not least of all the US election. A lot of my US friends have been in need of support, and both Vahn and Crimson have been doing the same. This won’t be a political discussion thread, I’m just letting you know what’s up. Besides that, every year about this time I suffer from seasonal adjustment disorder. Got my sunlamp (although caffeine isn’t an option) which should help. Thankfully I don’t suffer from the depression that usually comes with it, I just get to spend the next few weeks feeling as though I haven’t slept. It’s a pain, but nothing new. Usually I don’t like to mention┬ásuch things, but I’d like to keep these updates in the spirit of full disclosure. Anyway, update stuff:

November Update

Hey guys,

Interface

The new GUI is coming along and looking good, already closely resembling the new mockups. The next step will be to focus on the back end in order to have the new pretty buttons perform the new moves, and have the battle change state correctly depending on if it’s waiting for input or ‘playing’ the enemy’s turn, displaying the new continue button respectively. It serves as kind of a stand in for animations, and the new position and automatic timer should be a big improvement over the current design.
