The new bug tracker post IS stickied at the top of the Tech Support forum. I've added it to my Favorites list so I can check it easily and see what's happening.


I say this would help a lot in showing those infidels that Ellis is working a lot on the game.

Yeah, I wish the infidels would check the list first before whining about stuff. The game doesn't have THIS or doesn't do THAT, yada yada yada. WE KNOW THAT. Throwing a hissy-fit won't get those items worked off the list any faster, and whining about the same things over and over and over is nuts. Good thing is that there IS a bug tracker list, it IS being worked off, and the game IS improving with every update. I'd like to have more done sooner as much as the next guy, but hey I've worked in code development myself and know the painful realities of what Marshall is dealing with. And as a one-man shop, I can appreciate what he's doing.

IF possible, it would be nice to see beta releases more often. Maybe Matrix can streamline their process for betas? I understand having a higher QA process for the official releases, but unofficial releases could maybe be faster.

You could use a 15-day period for public beta release after 7 days of internal tests and yes matrix are terrible with the NDAs but that's the way it is. On the other hand, i'd really love to start playing this...I understand real bugs come first but am surprised Ellis didnt call for a team of "privateers" to begin rebuilding the manual and issuing video tutorials. If you check the "WHEN" thread on WiF you'll see my post asking the very same things and you'll see they have them all on schedule (in due time: Release date speculated around march 2k9 so useless to work on that now bc many things could change).

I honestly haven't thought much in the manual area. I'm sure there is much to be done in the video tutorial area but Matrix has doine some good stuff in this are on the game page! Is there anyone who wants to add some edits to the manual?
