Although I'll admit that I also wonder when 0.3a will be released, I have to say that I'm even MORE interested to know what sort of changes we can expect for 0.3a.

I wonder if it'll have the intro and ending working by then?

I think the features for 0.3 have been listed somewhere already.. however I think the main things for 0.3 are:


- data packaging; more compact and faster installation (and makes possible the next two, and other, features..)
- intro, ending, credits
- all new remixed music
- better handling for inputs (keyboard, joysticks)
- tons of bug fixes (which are already available as Striker's builds)

This is not official information, but this is what I've concluded from things I've read and heard :)

EDIT: Need to add, that there are no deadlines, atleast nothing what have been said in public. So, just be patient and wait.

While I do appreciate the point you are making, that has to be the stupidest thing I ever read. Anyone who reads through the forums, the FAQ, and the site will know that 0.3 appears when it appears. Asking about it is annoying, but still understandable. Your post though, is just idiotic. You want to show your solidarity, post a message that shows you to be something more than a postmonkey....

I would have to agree with Luki in totality.

Having a nick of 'OMGOMFG' and writing a single post with the words, "OMG OMFG OMFG" plastered throughout it... is just about the most idiotic thing I've ever seen.

Version .03 sounds to me as if it's (theoretically) complete. The game is winnable, has an opening and ending, and the most prevalent bugs have been addressed.

Perhaps it might be tentatively labeled the beta release...?

go get em Lukipela, chew his leg off  ;D it never fails to amaze no matter how much info you offer to the public, no one bothers to read the faqs, that are easily found, if one cares to reseach just a little. but asking the locals acheives the same results, though sometimes with a little humor and sarcasum thrown in to take the edge off.

if your not in the mood to wait, might i suggest, for the mean time, practice your melee skills. this was one of my major gripes, untill they fixed the disappearing weapons fire. now its mostly perfect. but back to the point, brush up on thoes skills, and when its finally ver1, you'll be ready to take on the world. ~DEFIANT

It will most likly be a while before 0.3.  There is going to be a lot of things before 0.3.

- Intro/Ending
- Packaging (instead of 13,000 files taking up 180 megs, 1 file taking up about 100)
- New Resource system, will basicly let things run better/faster
- Key config/Options menu
- Open bugs

There are 105 open bugs, proballby about 10 are already done, just not closed, and maybe about 15 or so won't be done by then or at all. But that still leaves 80, so it will be awhile.  Your best best would be to keep up with the CVS version, there has been substancal improvments since .2, check the technical forum.

(This is all the opinion of me.  Who am I?  Noone.  So don't send me me angry emails if it is released tomorrow)
