[TMF] Beta delay?

Post by Florent » 14 Nov 2007 09:46

I have a difficult news. We may delay the beta. We still have too much work on it.

I am sorry, because I make people wait. Honestly, I don't know today. I need to see the situation in one week or two to know what will be our move.

Don't be pressurised by people eager to test TMF. It is better to spend the time up-front getting it right before rolling out the beta, otherwise you'll spend far longer trying to rectify errors later.
Cheers!

Just do like id Software. "It'll be done when it's done". They've never given a firm release date to the public until they're sure it's ready. Follow a good lead.

Thats no problem to me ;) I like it better when publishers release their games when ready instead of releasing it early with lots of bugs just to keep the crowd happy :)
