"the key grip is the chief grip (lighting and rigging technician) on the set"

...not sure how that would apply to TSL :-P

Hmm... We actually did have people that did texture lighting, and character rigging for animations...

...but we're not going to be crediting either of them as Key Grips. :P

It is great that we know what is going on. I for one am willing to wait longer for a new sequence to be added if it expands on something in the later chapters. This may give Vivindi the incentive to let you continue working on the project. Keep up the great work and remember that 90% is still an 'A'

Hi all,
newbie here. While I do like the site, it would be nice to have an e-mail newsletter which ties to the game and the website. This way the public can check out the game . Also whenever you have a journal entry people could know and could come see.

I have read all the journal entries and they give a good sense of where the game is and what probable game developers should look into.

What is confusing though is lack of dates and the order of build-naming.

From software development release standpoint you usually have a public demo build after a beta/release candidate version rather than the other way around.

 Also finding information about hardware/system requirements is a pain.

Could there be a single page which has all the above info. with dates and stuff.maybe like a wiki ?

Welcome jivan! ;D

If you subscribe to the Newsletter, you will be notified right away as soon as the next website update occurs, especially Journal updates.

I'm not sure what you mean by the journal entries lacking dates.  Every single entry has one, including the ones I made last year during our Journal Special.

Game development is actually slightly different from general software development.  Many games have public demos which represent a small taste of the overall game.  Due to their size, they are generally equivalent to RC versions (which is why the full name was actually "The Silver Lining - Public Demo RC1").

The entire game, on the other hand, is still technically in beta, though the version we plan on sending to Activision is quite close to the release candidate version. 

We will be redesigning our website once we're closer to release.  Information such as system requirements and dates will be very easy to locate.

I have no recollection of a blue design, but then again, I have no recollection of any design (of yore). :P

That's more blue to me, but I like that one! Looks like King's Quest 7's intro screen.  :yes:

I remember both the blue design and the original design, though I only joined the forums during the blue era. I miss it terribly... What they should do is come up with a green design, in commemoration of The Land of the Green Isles. Or, a chessboard design in commemoration of chessboard land. Oh, how I miss the old days. The days when this forum was bustling with life (that's not to say it isn't now, especially compared to some forum on the internet. This is probably one of the most active KQ forums there is). This forum used to be so much more active than it is now... But I still love this community. This was my first forum ever, and I treat every member here as an extension of my own family. I had so many good times here. But back on topic, where is the next progress update? It's the end of august...

That would be sweeeeeeeeeet.  I like the chessboard idea.

Your guesses are as good as mine, since I haven't seen the new design yet either! XD

As for the journal entry, I think I'll post it next weekend instead.  I'll be meeting up with most of the other directors then. :D

sweet, I'll mark my calender! I really hope they make it so we can choose different themes! Then again, I don't know if that's possible on this forum system. The one I used to use, Forumer I think it was, let me have a bunch of different designs for my guests to choose from (some I customized myself, though not too well I admit...) either way, I'm excited about a new design! The red has been around for a while now, so it's always good to have a change in scenery. And, it's good that they're redesigning it for the release of the game! I'm anxiously waiting to see it!

This was my first forum ever, and I treat every member here as an extension of my own family.
This wasn't my first forum. I believe that honour (well) befalls to the one Sierra, back in the days, created particularly for MoE. I remember when I first came here (well, it's predecessor, obviously), the forum was soooo quiet, I could keep up with new posts on a weekly basis. But yes, everyone who was here, how few there were, instantly made me feel at home. :D

As for the journal entry, I think I'll post it next weekend instead.  I'll be meeting up with most of the other directors then. :D
I've been waiting for it, like, ages. :P

so it's always good to have a change in scenery.
Not too particularly fond of changes, me, unless it's absolutely necessary and/or I'm heavily involved and know it's as logical as possible. But then again, that's probably just me. ::)
