Hello out there,...

well,... now it's time to say good-bye to a good friend, who has guided us through many difficult situations in our developer life, but has also caused some nerv-killing problems, if we think of the OCX Issuue, for example,...

I'm talking about nothing less than good old SWf Studio V2(.2),... His last hours are running away now, and we await the brith of his son V3, which will hopefully go further were his Father has stopped,...

Good-Bye V2,.. *snief*

Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 22 2004, 06:21 pm

why V2 will come back?

Northcode... Soo when SWF Studio V 4 is coming out? Just kidding!


Posted by swf_is_da_bomb in Coffee Lounge on Aug 22 2004, 10:12 pm

Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 22 2004, 10:22 pm

I imagine.. like most of company's. They wait until 12:00AM there time, and update the site and put's V3. Or mabe they did a system that uploads at 12:00AM...

Well all we can do now, is do "reload" on the web browse every minute. :P

Yep, this is a french name. It was the name of first king of the french kingdom around 580. But my parents gave me this name refering (don't know if "refer" is the right word) a french painter : Clovis Trouille.

So... where is v3 ? :p

Posted by ivailo in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 11:24 am

Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 11:28 am

~11:30.... still nothing....

Mabe Northcode... just a guess..., is making last minutes adjustements to the new site... Or mabe there will be no new site, just they are updating this one...

OR

All Northcode where in a bus to go the job and there was an accident. :(

OR

mabe all Northcode where taking the metro (subway) to go to there job, and the metro broke down, so now there stuck inside, between 2 stations...

OR

Mabe All Northcode, got sick today and no one was able to come....Nha even if a nuke feal on Tim, I'm sure he'll find away to come at Northcode and put online V3 :)
I mean this guy is so great he's indestructeble...(I think..)

You know all of these are supossitions... I mean I don't have a camera and look what there are doing.. I mean I check Winamp TV.. and I odn't see "Northcode at work (web cam)" :P

Hmm... Mabe I can move just next to northcode, and make a hole on a wall like this I can see what there doing.... nha that's to...evil... And I think you can't miss a hole on a wall...

I'm just kidding!

All we can do now is wait...

Posted by Andi2000 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:29 pm

Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:30 pm

nope it's 5:30
Montreal Time is the same as Ottawa


Posted by Andi2000 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:34 pm

11 hours 30 minutes minus
6 hours 00 minutes
-------------------------------
5 hours 30 minutes

as is ay, -6 hours :p


The famous one is back on!


Posted by Andi2000 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:37 pm

I'm getting nervous a little bit now,...


Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:42 pm

Northcode better have a good exccuse...
or mabe what northcode wanted to say, but now one understood. is that V3 will be on the 24th and not the 23. Like the 23, is the last day...


Posted by ecumichael in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 05:50 pm

Hmmm.
Well, if its good, no one will care about the delay.
Just like Half-life 2.
:)


Posted by Andi2000 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 23 2004, 06:00 pm

ok boys, for me it's now Tuesday, 24th of August, I'm going verrryyy sad to bed now,...

Posted by gunn in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:29 am

Hello everyone,

I've talked to a few of you already at FF or FITC, but for those of you I haven't met, my name is Joey Gunn and I'm in charge of operations (among other things) here at Northcode.

First, I would like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic support while waiting for V3 to appear. It's been a long haul for all of us and it would be easy to get discouraged. We're glad you're still with us.

As some of you may have noticed, V3 is not yet available for your viewing pleasure. Rather than wasting your time (and ours) with a bunch of excuses we'll stick with what works best for us. The simple truth is that some of our estimates were off and that a couple of ducks have not lined up as expected.

On behalf of the entire team I'd like to apologize for the delay. We have been reviewing and revising our release plan tonight and we'll be working around the clock to get V3 into your hands as soon as possible.

Since we already announced the release as August 23rd, we will be honouring our 90 day free upgrade policy using that as the cut-off date. So if you purchased (or purchase) SWF Studio V2 on or after May 23rd your copy of V3 will be free.

Tim will be updating his V3 spoilers post (in the News forum) with more information about what you'll find in V3.

Joey Gunn
Northcode Inc.


Posted by jwr in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:34 am

Hi gunn,

Thank you for the update. It's good to know that everyone is OK at Northcode.

Here's a thot..... why not all of you go home to your wives and get a good nights sleep.

It's important software, but it's only software.

Thanks again.

Blessings

James (jwr)


Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:37 am

I must agree with jwr!


Posted by jacko in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:39 am

Thanks for the update Gunn

Do you think we're talking days, weeks or months here?

..yeah I agree with the others, go to bed and work it out in the morning!

:-)


Posted by Andi2000 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 03:50 am

me to! one day more or less really doesn't matter now,...


Posted by Jhon in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 03:57 am

Yep same here!
I want a SWF Studio that works! :D

I told you before, Northcode, and I say it again, take your time, have fun, enjoy every day, and stop eating poutine before you get fat ;) (I mean pizza is healther)

My girlfriend and friends says I cook very well! :D
So... if you need a cook.... you know.... ;)

if i think of the thouands of thousands bugs in "some other vendor's" version, im happy that NC thakes their time and creates a well-coded build.


Posted by ecumichael in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:33 pm

Yes, but are we now talking days or weeks, or (yikes) months?
Basically, we are in the same boat that we were in before they even announced the August 23rd release date.
I guess maybe I'll get v3 on the same day that I get Halflife 2.
;)


Posted by ai024 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:35 pm

or Duke Nukem forever even ))))

omg )


Posted by ecumichael in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:39 pm

There is NO WAY they could ever make their money back on DNF. They should just drop it, which is probably what they have done.

Northcode, however, will definitely make money on v3 (my credit card is standing by).

:)


Posted by ai024 in Coffee Lounge on Aug 24 2004, 12:42 pm

well, DNF is some kinda legend / epic / myth of gaming industry )

so V3 is )
