0.3.0 is out. ALL GLORY TO THE TONGUE TREE!

LET US BASK IN ITS GLORY FOR ALL TIME

FOR SHE HAS SEEN FIT, WITH HER MANY EYES, TO GRANT US A NEW VERSION OF THE BLANK!

I’m sorry, I get this way when I stay up late.  (ie, when I wrote most of this)

Anywho, admidst much late-night debugging I’ve managed to get the code to what appears to be a functional state.  What you see above is the extent of my testing.  That is to say, I haven’t tested extensively, so there may be some bugs, but I wanted to get this out tonight soon as promised.  I’m dubbing this version 0.3.0 — it’s not a spectacular change from the last, it’s not sporting tons of new features and fixed bugs, but it does represent a different direction for the project.  I’m interested to see what comes of this and what sorts of worlds arise.  I’m happy that some other folks will get to experience the strange brew of emotions as little worlds grow in the dusty old desktops they appoint as server-boxes.

If you missed the last post, this version of Infinite Blank is hosted by YOU GUYS, so some folks will need to set up servers and announce them online before anyone can play.  I’ve set up a new board in the forums for that, with instructions on putting a server together.

>> Infinite Blank forums :: Servers <<

Downloads:

0.3.0 for Windows
0.3.0 for Mac OS X 10.6+ (intel)  –  This *might* work on Leopard too.
Linux/Unix users, try WINE for now; I hear IB emulates well.

As with 0.2.9, teleporting and avatars are broken.  Expect fixes for those in 0.3.1.  (there’s a workaround for teleports, but if you use it they’ll end up shared between all the servers.)  Also in 0.3.1, or perhaps 0.3.2, will be a lobby system that servers can register themselves with, which will make finding and connecting to servers much more straightforward.  I’m getting some help from my friend Adam Reineke with the back end of that.

0.3.1 release tentatively scheduled for next weekend.

Report any other bugs you find in the forums.

Have fun.  I’m excited to see what you guys create.

    Setting up a server for yourself works for me without any problems… very good job on making the game available again ^^

    AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWYEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAA!!!
    but in all seriousness i am absolutely ecstatic about this new direction the project is taking, I am currently taking steps to run a server at my school, as part of the art department. Thank you so much and I hope that future updates and fixes will come soon!
