Legacy 1.44

A new coder came to the Legacy team, and has been adding a TON of bugfixes, which will be compiled into the last of the 1.0 branch, Legacy 1.44.

After they get a stable and satisfactory version of 1.44, they'll swap over to total focus on the 2.0 branch, and starting for release.

I noticed the thread while looking for info on the Legacy coronas for the DyLi's, and noticed that updates were being done to Legacy. Boingo posted once, and Xbolt posted once...Boingo talking about 1.32 (possibly meaning 1.42) being different from this new 1.44 (unreleased), while Xbolt noticed that the changelog linked by the main dev mentioned ALOT of newmaps and chexquest fixes (by name, said stuff like "Fix segfault in chexquest-newmaps due to lightlist bad value.") as well as a built in Chex Quest mode that mimics the behavior of stuff like Chocolate doom, as well as what appears to be Strife support.

Xbolt then commented that this stuff was enough to make him finish his project (newmaps).


SO! If 1.44 comes out, will we see the finishing of Newmaps?

Aha, you found my secret message... Yes, I do plan on releasing Newmaps IV someday, using Legacy 1.44.

I've been working on it over the summer. Well, trying to, anyway. When I started at the beginning of summer, I set a goal of releasing on August 13th (yesterday) but I just couldn't make it... I'm stuck trying to come up with new level designs. Three episodes have been done already, and I don't know what I can do differently to make IV stand out as a worthy successor to the first three. I've pretty much got the story down; I just need good map design to overlay on top of it... And with school starting up again next week, I doubt it'll be out this year. Again.


(Shoot, I'm beginning to look like John Romero with Daikatana... Grandiose promises, without the ability to actually follow through with them... XD)

i used to be cool y'know

Grandiose indeed...but will you (well, they) be able to pull it through?

Tune in this time next year!

i thought the 3rd was very different from the 1st and 2nd episodes... in both story, feel, and all the (funny) cutscenes.

Oh yeah, around episode 3 is when Xbolt really got into fragglescript. So mix that in with the crazy, weird, funny, and other ideas we had and put it all together and you get what episode 3 was.

How many maps have you completed or are working on currently? I doubt I'd be able to help as my mod takes up most of my time, but I' like to know what all you have done.

I just thought of something else, will the Episode 1 maps be refurbished somewhat? They're lacking the polish of the second and third Episode maps, and a lot of people are turned off by them before they even start the other levels.
