    Well, nearly two years without a patch, which just about breaks our record, so... We're givin ya a little something to tide ya'll over while we continue to beat this thing into shape.

    Kroush is a mid difficulty FN approved map, now up on the RKS servers. It can be downloaded directly from them (which maybe a bit slow), or from here:
    http://www.thothie.com/msc_dev4/kroush_NOV2017_01.rar
    Or as an attachment so linked below. (Either way, requires Winrar or 7z.)

    The extensive multi-level map, while obeying NOV2015a compatibility, features an incremental dynamic treasure system and integrates a few clever features to give it a fair amount of replay value, all while providing a few puzzles and surprises along the way.

    Currently, to access the map, simply "votemap kroush" in chat or console.

    So go kills us some bandits! (And spiders, and tigers, and bears, oh my!... Wait, no tigers...)

    Well, we're coming up on our third year no patch anniversary.

    Was hoping to be in alpha testing by mid October and for a release on November 1st, but predictably, that hasn't worked out (no one to blame on the dev team aside from myself, really). Hoping to resolve that in the next few days... If, against all odds, that does work out, and the alpha test doesn't result in anything too traumatic, with luck, we'll have another turkey day patch.

    Meanwhile, enjoy your candy.

    (Someday we'll get that damned Halloween event patch.)

    Bleh, yet another security leak and mysterious crash bug later... Mission: Release by Turkey Day is apparently a turkey.

    Alright, what I'm gonna do is set up a semi-public alpha. I'll create a special alpha group and a thread in which anyone who posts therein will be given access to an alpha forum with a link to the download, instructions for swapping between the FN compatible release and the alpha, a list of what needs to be tested, some non-FN commands for testing the things, plus format for reporting bugs. I'll copy everyone from the dev group to the alpha group as well (a recent leak reminded me we kinda need to separate our tester and developer's sections anyways.)

    Hopefully I can figure out how to do all that - the Xenforo management is always a little unintuitive to me, though it may be less its fault and more my brain going AWOL in my old age.

    So what you're saying is that we should be writing in our 2019 Christmas lists?
