It's been awhile
« on: December 21, 2017, 09:01:46 am »
Hello hello and hello,

It's been awhile. I released the latest version almost three years ago, just when I moved to a house with a friend. The last three years I've had endless parties, but also I've been writing the book. I guess that's some kind of event in life before hitting 30 and things go more silent. Well, now this part of my life is coming to an end as I'm moving to live alone and the book is nearly finished. Now it's just some feedback, fixing grammar then then I go to publisher. Exactly same problem occurred with The Chosen Ones: the project became too big.

About The Chosen Ones, I don't know. I had a little itch I could do version 1.1. Fix few things and so on... but I want to see more Youtube / livestream videos about the campaign! It's so enjoyable to watch someone playing it. Perhaps... Perhaps someone plays, I comment and fix the campaign same time?

EDIT: I could actually make for someone a special version before to fix the most important bugs before livestreaming / making videos.

Nice, very nice. I will read that topic. I think I will open chat and I will be there for the next couple of days / weeks until I've created 1.1 version. Anyone can come there and talk to me about the campaign. Private messages are fine too.

https://webchat.quakenet.org/
Channel name: TCO
My name: Aero

Sometimes I may not answer but I try to be there as much as I can. I'm from Finland so my GMT is +2 and I'm there somewhere between 10:00 to 24:00.

EDIT: Oh and there's one thing I wonder most: are all the "Easter Eggs" found? That was just some random idea just before 1.0 version. I just saw my real face on Youtube from "Easter Egg" and I was like "AAHHH!!! I HOPE I WON'T BECOME A MEME!! I NEVER THOUGH THIS WOULD GO SO FAR!! WHAT I WAS THINKING?"

Hey,

I worked for the campaign two weeks. In that time I fixed many things, but I got stuck to some major bugs like Critical Strike... I forgot how troublesome it was to fix the game overall. So many things I already forgot and didn't know anymore how to fix. And I don't have nowadays much time to figure it all out and motivation to go different forums to ask for help. So eventually I gave up, moved on and started working on another book. This time not fantasy book. I'm still waiting for some feedback before I sent the book about this fantasy world to publisher.

So at least the story is not over, but I fear that I won't be making anymore versions of the campaign. Of course if someone gives a big donation I would work my ass of.

EDIT: But the guy who I spoke in the chat... Is it possible to see those videos you made? It is tearful in a good way to watch videos about the campaign.

seems like we missed each other all the time in https://webchat.quakenet.org/  :/
I would loved it too chat more with you.

i uploaded 2 vids a bit ago but never saw you again xd
here ya go https://www.twitch.tv/vancleef29/videos/all
if you want me too upload EVERYTHING tell me ^^

the Yurgimar vid almost half of it is just prep and the other one i uploaded a whole part of my footage
1:27:30 start the fight vs. Zylcious, i loaded a few times cuz i forgot what he did
and 3:01:50 start the fight with Xvarion

But that would be very sad too hear that you move along and let the Version 1.0 be
i know you already worked so hard and long for the game
but still i wish for a newer version with fewer bugs
and some balance changes so more abilitys are viable
that would make the game perfect.

I would like too help more but i dont know much about the WC 3 editor.
(I just know that crits worked in 1.8e, im surprised that some of the bugs are so hard too fix,
but i gues is is easier too imagine the fix than actually doing it in the editor.)

The Chosen Ones together with the Warcraft 3 Engine is just such a great game, but some of the bugs just ruin so much newcomer experience ^^
I wish you best of luck with your Books and future ; ) , maybe someday we see a *real* game (lets hope).
I played the game a few 100 hours and i will still continue playing every few years ; ).

(Someone in another forum asked if you could make the campaign open source so maybe some other people could fix some bugs themself ?
 Im pretty shure that you dont like that Idea, but it would be so great if some people fix stuff and we have a newer Version
 instead of no new Version ever. : / )

(Im sure i dont have enought money to donate for ya, but who knows what means big for ya. I really dont want you too quit now when its almost done. : / )

Yo! Remember me my friend?

I tried to contact you on your Facebook site a while ago, seems you abandoned it just like you abandoned this site :D
Anyway, I just wanna say that I remember my promise, and still waiting for your book. I just this site once in a while for news, it's not really convenient. I sent you my personal email, please drop me an email when the book is published.

It's glad to hear from you again, the old time when we support each other is really great. I will go to Helsinki someday in the future, hope we can meet in person there :D

Keep up with the good work man.
