Re: Decision on Steam & Stand-Alone Launcher

Will the stand-alone version still update automatically? Or am I waiting for an update that I should be downloading manually?

It should still auto-update...well..automatically ask you to update. But it will be a week or so behind the Steam updates.

Re: Decision on Steam & Stand-Alone Launcher

Yeah, we really wanted to fix all the game breaking/crashing sorts of bugs before putting it out to both versions. The version we put out on Steam turned out to have a lot more bugs that didn't turn up in testing, thus we want to fix them before we release it to anyone else. Sorry, we're dumb and break things sometimes.

Basically just doing the very final tests to make sure it all works as planned, so shouldn't be long now.

Re: Decision on Steam & Stand-Alone Launcher

If you try to squash out every bug you will never be finished. Also, why not release the current version for everyone and then make a patch? I dont understand why suddenly everything has to be in 1, glorious release. Anyway I have been waiting for more than 2 weeks now, I don't see any more reason to check the site again before Easter.

You aren't the sharpest tool in the box, are you?

Re: Decision on Steam & Stand-Alone Launcher

If you DON'T try to squash out every major bug you will get a shitty game. Personally I'd rather play a great, bug-free game that was late to release, than play a game that released on time that was virtually unplayable. Until you experience the difficulty of developing a game of this scale with a team of THREE members, I suggest you stop being such an arse and stop adding pressure to the already monumental task that the devs are undertaking.

(Also, a new update has already been released, so if you had bothered to open your eyes and look around, you could see that.)
