One of the reasons I love these games is because they're made for Mac first! MACs RULE!! :D

We deserve to be first; I'm tired of second-class computers getting the first choice of new games!

So -- not to ask the obvious question, but has anyone heard from JV if there's a revised release date?

I'm trying as hard as I can not to get any work done, and GF4 would really support this noble cause...

I am down to running tree branches back and forth for money in my text-based game...

It is high time for something new and interesting to spring up and tear me away from my boredom.

Give Jeff a little time. Would you rather get the game on time but not quite ready or maybe a day or two late and in a state of stunning perfection?

—Alorael, who has no special information. He have any reason to think the game will or will not be late or that any particular stunning perfection is a reasonable possibility.

I would have the game stunningly perfect, and today. It should also cure cancer, and usher in a new age of prosperity.

Seriously though, Jeff just said "quick update: should come out close to the 20th". It's not a release date at all. I thought we were just pretending. Or was I the only one?

Well I for one am all for snark. That said, if GF4 doesn't eliminate world hunger, I'll be very disappointed.

I personally have erroneously decided already about a month ago that the game is almost out - that was when the geneforge forum suddenly became very agitated and the beta testers have started glimpsing on what's coming. So I quite well understand what many people are going through now, and, as bad as it sounds, we can wait for as long as it takes.

About the game coming to Macs first, I am happy that for the first time (after Marathon at least) I can to tell my non-Mac-using friends what is the main reason they should get a Mac.

Having said all this, I do hope that we-Mac-users do not need to wait for too long (and that the non-Mac-users do not need to suffer to a too severe extent).

If I could wait for Windows Vista, I can wait a week or two for Geneforge 4.

Relax with all the time-agonizing. All it does is stress us all out. For instance, -X- is now hoping that Jeff didn't die for obscure reasons.

See what you do to -X-?!?!

I'm not sure if its even fully uploaded, but it appears to be on the FTP site. (even if the main page hasnt been updated yet.)

Unfortunately, it won't launch. Not that I'm in any position to complain, seeing as it hasn't actually been released.

Well, it downloaded, installed, and ran for me. But since I'm still in the middle of G2, that's all it's doing for a while.
Why one earth would the file be up this much earlier than the website updates?

Just downloaded it. It's running fine here as well. Hurray!

Edit: here's the link for the ftp. Use at your own risk, though, since I guess it's not official yet.

Yep, it's all there. Enjoy. G3 was also available on the FTP site before being advertised on the webpages. Maybe it's Jeff's way to reward the extreme keeners. Or maybe he downs a few beers to celebrate posting the thing to FTP, and doesn't get around to the rest for a while.

We're not doing cool. We're doing pretty.

This just occurred to me, but I bet he wants to wait until G4 is put up on the site that does registration for him; then he uploads the the formal announcements.

Maybe it's still missing an important patch, or maybe it's just that the administrative stuff (purchasing etc) isn't ready for release.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now, if I didn't live in the middle of nowhere, I would have it quickly but we can't even get high speed here so it's a slow dial-up!! The small towns 2 miles away have had high speed for ages but we still can't get it here! :rolleyes:
