Okay, Gonna do another Tech updates.
The launcher actually took me longer than expected. But its all working now as you can see in the screenshot. With this, players will be able to easily update the game to the latest version without having to re-download the whole game everytime.
I was also able to integrate the news and version data stream right from my blog site into the launcher. With this, you can see a summary of what's going on right from the launcher. I wasn't able to create direct url from the blog post, so you will have to click "My Blog" button to access my blog for the full blog post info.
Launcher is pretty much done. I tested it working and all. The only thing left was that I am trying to add a resolution setting to the launcher and possibly in-game as well. So gonna release the demo only after this is done.
Beside from that, I am also planning/testing on a user management system which integrate with the game and my blog site. If this works, I can do a lot of cool stuff which I had planned for later releases, such as player effect world events or boss fight as well as some stuff you can do on my website. If possible, I might finish this system before release the demo as it will allow me to do actual testing to see if there will be problems later on.
And finally, the final reason for delaying the demo launcher is that... Metal Gear Solid V is released today!! I already pickup my copy, have you? =P I been playing/replaying Metal Gear Solid 1 - 4 lately. I can see some of the well thought out mechanics that they use. It's giving me a lot more Ideas I can use on this game =D and I can see why Metal Gear Solid was such a classic! I don't really want to release the demo right now, since you guys will be/should be busy playing Metal Gear Solid V atm! Right?! I know I am gonna play abit as well. XD
Don't worry, I will still work on this game while playing ＝P
