As the Senior/Lead Programmer for Daria I thought I should add a journal here and let you know what is going on behind the scenes.

Note: This is my journal - stuff written here are my opinions and worklog, and must not be confused with the development team's public announcements. I'm also eager to improve my English skills (especially prepositions such as "by", "at", "on" etc), so please get angry at me when I can't spell! Very Happy

...

We are currently working on a new engine and tools base that is rather different from Akarra. The reason for this is because Daria is a different game and it's easier for the new devs to understand the code if they were writing it themselves.

This will take a while, I guess, but a lot faster than it took me to make Akarra. One reason is simply that we are not "re-inventing the wheel". We have the old source code, it's just a matter of changing it the way we like it. Another reason is... there are five programmers now Razz

Anyhow... I'm currently converting some game logic to the new engine. Eponick is coding on new network classes. Stalker, Aegzorz and DlEast are working on the new tools. These tools will be great, they will be a lot easier to use than the old ones... and that means we will be able to add content to the game faster than in Akarra.

Yeah... I just wanted to let you know that we're actually doing something. Perhaps I will give away some real inside information later on.

Cool that you have joined the new dev team, I bet you were missed! Smile

Man, I should really pick up the phone and call (but not tonight as Sweden is playing Croatia) Smile , we haven't spoken for ages it seems! We missed our Indian Food on Valentine's Day tradition too last year, we have to do better than that this time around... Smile

Hope that everything's well.

I'll call ya.

Hehe yeah... it's more like a personal news post. Should perhaps not be sticky... Oh, well, it's a hard life.

Syspurge: Hehe heya! Yeah, too bad we missed out on the Indian food Sad Next time, Gadget! I'll call you tomorrow, too much Daria-devving now Wink

Good to know that you're doing something!

Looks like you have much work left. Could we expect a finnished version this spring? I know that the dev team doen't lika deadlines but it's hard to look forward to something when you have absolutely no idea when i will ready

Anyway, keep up the good work!

Absolutely !!!

We are very anxious to play and to review the old people Very Happy.

By the way, Jeb, you have a relation of emails registered in the old server of WiA?
All will have to be in the DOD. I can see that some people arent in the forums Razz
