Hi, new to the forum, yadda yadda.

Is there any kind of tentative release date for Blades of Avernum? Is there a page somewhere on the Spiderweb site with current information? All I could find was the article on what is and isn't going to be included, which made no mention of the release schedule as far as I could tell.

BoA is still in the planning stage, so any speculation on the release date is liable to be completely wrong. Right now, Jeff is handling Avernum 3 for windows and a few carbonizations- BoA hasn't been fully kicked off yet. That, and many members of the community want to make sure Jeff knows their desires.

So, in sum- no one knows or has any clue. Maybe in a year or two.

You can test custom graphics in one of the Avernum games. Just use ResEdit to paste your graphic istaed of something else in the graphics data file. If you have a PC (as in personal computer, not player character), then theres probably a different way to do it.

What I cant wait for is so i can test out the scenario ideas in my head (better write them down, or Ill forget them by then)

Will Boa or G2 come out first? Why 2 years? Will it really take that long? :(

BoA will be first. In about six months to a year, I assume.

Because he'd rather not waste time telling us what he's doing when he could instead be doing it.

—Alorael, who is also under the impression that Jeff rarely visits the forums other than to make announcements and to see what bugs crop up immediately after a game's release. BoA is the exception.

Well, it's a 3 person team. Jeff does most of the programming, Mariann currently takes care of the baby, and Linda manages many of the finances and game-registration requests.

Jeff has posted a lot on BoE after the wish list was sent to him. Some good things have come of it, as well.

I would have prefered not to hear about it....

you know how much desperation I had to wait from last year to June, for Avernum 3 to come out and when I knew it was for Mac I almost kill myself, and now you come saying 2 or 3 years!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAaahhhhhhh!!!!!!

I will need a psychiatrist to make me forgot I ever played Avernum.... or else....

Heh. I was on the phone, credit card in hand, the day A2 was released. I had my registration code before the demo was done downloading. I used my internal scenario editor to edit this thread from my memory. At least, I keep telling myself that.
