The making of port orion -)

Port Orion consists of levels 11 through 19. It is the last human sub-port leading into the depths. What lies beyond that is a bit more mysterious. Port Orion now only has 1 safe level controlled by the remnant. They are lead by Dr. Sierra. They are barely holding level 10. Your missions will be to head into port orion and help the remnant. The people that lost their lives and were captured stand in your way…. with something else that seems to be showing up more as you head deeper….

The dead do not sleep here and some are found in their waking systems….

Here Doom’s poor corpse 😉

These barracks don’t look like a nice place to sleep =).. Port Orion Level 11 The lost… 😉

ARENA BETA BUG LIST
——————–
– NEW 4.0 code causes crash on exit from local match…

Use the second emails download link..Its just easier -)…

A warning… when you get to levels 11-19 you will reach the gutted remains of port Orion… and it gets gory ;)… of course that is Beta 2.0 =)

ARENA BETA SHIPPED…

ITS OUT… TESTED… EMAIL SENT… THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY PROBLEMS NOW… PLEASE POST HERE ANY ISSUES OR IDEAS!

Update:
THANKS to that article I found another problem… WOW… Payload != payload… nice =/…

Update: Well THERE IS YOUR PROBLEM! I updated itunes and it seems the OLD fashion way of dragging a zip file on it does not work anymore!… It just copies the sound files… I have to now make an ipa and send it out instead!… I hope other developers are reading this that cost me a LOT of time and a very late night… Not to mention Doom also!.. So I am going to test uploading and downloading then one more play run then it will be out again in an email… thanks again for the patience… ridiculously hard to find the clues sometimes…

Update: build WILL be out today =).. I am just going through a long process to make sure everyone can install it and nothing changed… other good news I FOUND THE LAG PRODUCER in the beginning of a level and fixed it =)… it seems the accelerometer can get a traffic jam of commands backed up while you are loading. I just turned it off as I am not using it =).. GOOD STUFF!

So after I get it it tested as an AD-Hoc install I will let everyone know!… THANKS for the patience.. there are about 100 steps to get a app out to testers. If you miss one or they change one then whammo =)….

RAWR MOFO! =)


Tearing me up in this character build 😉

LINK TO CHARACTER BUILD

BTW:

    Breaking Benjamin

have moved to my favorite motivational band while coding.. Bleach still continues to be my motivation on the art side… LOVE that show.. =)…man a mix of the two could be some amazing entertainment =)

At level 9 level 3 Reyem taking CHUNKS out of me -)…not going to be easy to earn =P..if you see him in the Arena you know someone Earned him =)

UPDATE:Pretty sure it will be tonight.. I need testing and what better then Beta testers to beat on it… REMEMBER to use the L1 – L9 in the warp machine to test everything… the best method would be to start at level 2 since 1 has been beat to death…
Method single player testing…
1. load up
2. create a new player
3. Stop by the malice machine in town (warp gate) set your name
4. Goto the warp machine and type L2. This will set you up with everything you could have at level 2 in common condition. The command will also set up up to quest 4 which is the first on level 2. Then equip your new armor in your inventory…
5. Beat those 4 quests on level 2.
6. Head back to the warp machine and type L3. repeat for each level. =). you get to play with everything in the first 10 levels.

Reyem neas you will have to earn I do not recommend trying until around level 6 or so.

I will email when the build is up. Do not expect it until late tonight central time =).. I cannot wait until y’all are duel wielding a tachyon and plasma rifle with 12 processing buffs…. feels pretty damn good!.. Then you step into the arena with another player weilding those / throwing nades at your head / call up Reyem Neas out of the floor to pound you!… O man this is going to be an amazing game when it is done =)….

QUESTION: Anyone NOT 4.1 right now? They are requiring 4.0 compatibility tests… so it would save me a TON of time to just target 4.0…

Update: In the upcoming test you can type L# at the warp machine. The # is the level and this will:
1. Level you up to this level. (Up to 9)
2. Set your quest to the first for this new level
3. Clear your items and give you one of _everything_ that _could_ drop to this level (COMMON CONDITION) (EXCEPT REYEM NEAS) you will have to earn his butt.. and good luck he hurts something fierce now…

OK mailboxes in

Bed time! =)…. I had a few more things pop up with the 4.0 upgrade… o well they should be easy BUT you all may see more “crashes” which are really just the new “things” apple laid out for me =)… just let me know if you see one.. =).. I am hoping wens – thurs to get it out… It is looking good now..

Also now that you can mail items I had to remove the multiple ITEM saves…now the saves will mainly be used for different builds of STATS with the same gear. There is jut no way to avoid duping if I allow you to mail an item. Then load an older version and mail it again.. =P.. this works pretty good anyway =). It will need testing.. =)

new mailbox and mountains =)

20 pages of code and a database later.. you can now mail stuff to each other =).. AND I can mail stuff to you for special occasions and the like =)

Tonight I hope to clear some of the bugs.. I do have a childs baseball game though.. so it maybe Tuesday before a build will be ready =)…work is KILLING me today… argh.. so much to do so little time =)….

Happy Monday all! 😉

well I have to update to snow leapord….

Well now that I am running full mac I have a few issues to clear up today..my export tools need to be rebuilt as one example. I am also going to get the mailbox system in to test… ;).. you will be able to mail items and messages to anyone that has a name. You have to set you name at the arena portal. Once you take a name it is yours until you release it. =) Back to work!

Update: All done with the update weee!!!1 ;).. now back to the bug list .. only a few left. I might get them done tonight BUT I am going to the race track also tonight..

\Update: Stuck in update hell.. I will be here a day or so.. argh!

argh I have to do it sometime so now is as good a time as any…. So if it goes well (not expected to) then the build will ship in a few days… if not who knows…. now it will be 0S4.0 compliant as it has to be anyway for the app store… owach…

1

ME!
Testing! Almost done just the issues below! =)

Update 2: The stats for “today” will reflect what you did in a 30 minute snap shot of TOTAL play time.. every 30 min a new snapshot is uploaded to the website.. this should help to keep the scoreboard less stagnate.. I probably will filter to where if you have not uploaded in a few days it will drop your scores from the TODAY’s board but the all time will never drop. =)

Update: I plan on having a intro level to train you on startup. (DOOM’s idea). I want it to start with a white fade in and you getting up with a stumble.. your standing in some wreckage on a vast white out plane with some ice mountains in the distance.. you loot your sword there and a .22 with 6 shots in it. you have dead people all around. There is a headless arm less bot wandering around looking for flesh that you must shoot. In the level you must. 1. loot a corpse 2. use a weapon to kill the bot that cannot harm you… 3. equip a skill 4. equip a weapon. 5. use a skill.. 6. melt an item… I think that covers most of the very basics… I will create this as the last thing in the game so I cam have all the bells and whistles when a user first plays the game =) .

Next build you will loose your character BUT I will be shipping it with a way to level and test items that you receive up to that level =).. also you will be able to set the quest you are on… thus much faster testing. so setting your level to 3 will set you on the first level 3 quest with level 3 mid ranged gear and all the skills you could have possible looted up until then….it will probably be that way up until launch. I do hope you try all the levels and quests though and do not just skip to the end =)…this will make arena interesting for sure =P

CURRENT BUGS

——Update
– Connections done. I will need you guys to beat on the arena connections and see how it works for you… with all the different networks it is really hard to pick the right methods. However this should work 90% of the time for internet.. and 100% for local. LAN = local WAN = internet… so testers with multiple devices that want to check localy will choose wan and be on the same wifi connection.. those that want to test WAN need to connect to each other not on the same WIFI OR!!! you can change your device to be on the 3G network and connect to one on the WIFI network or BOTH 3g to test the wan connection… I will have a build by the weekend for yall =).. Arena is very important to me as there is NO game that has anywhere NEAR the depth for online play.. and also not to mention the single player =)… ok tonight I am done goals complete… hopefully my new Mac book pro will be in tomorrow and that will eat a little of my time to set up.. not to mention pay off! =).. night guys thanks for all the help!! There will be ingame stuff dedicated to all you hard testers -=)…
