Hello... Well, I've slowed down my work on the beta these days... I'm sorry about it, but it was really frustrating to work on the Voodoo bug and discover it was caused by only one wrong line of code. So I just dropped everything and started working on something else instead... (If you're only interested in Kyodai Mahjongg, you can skip the next paragraph)  Well I'm working on a sort of revival of my good old anime-related website, Cyber Namida. A few years ago, when Kyodai Mahjongg was far from being created, Cyber Namida used to be probably the most popular French website for manga and anime-related information. Then one day I had to stop updating it, after creating over 600 pages, because I had to make a living, and only Kyodai Mahjongg would allow that (I've always been against putting advertisements on websites). Well it's been nearly five years now, and I've found an opportunity to somehow revive my beloved website, by making a news page about Saint Seiya Hades, the follow-up to the Japanese show that had a huge success in France between 1988 and 1991, under the name Les chevaliers du zodiaque (see the November 16 news bit for more information). Last month I simply committed to live commenting of the new episodes on newsgroups, but this time I thought I'd better put everything on my website. If you speak French and are interested in that show, you may want to visit the related page. I'm not only commenting now, I also made a fan translation of episode 3 (and more to come, if I have some spare time) from Japanese to French. It's really exciting to be part of the adventure. It's the first time I ever translate any actual fiction material from Saint Seiya, although I did already have a couple of articles published in the French version of the comic book a few years ago.  Now, time to get back to Kyodai Mahjongg indeed. I'll start with my improvements to the interface, although it's not the easiest thing to do. I can't stand anymore these incomplete edit boxes, you see ! Smile

I'm up to beta 5.2 now, the 12th private release of KMJ 19.00's beta version. I finally managed to fix the Voodoo Graphics bug that plagued my last week -- I was powerless, confronted with a driver bug that was half my fault, half the driver's fault. Anyway ! Now everything's working fine. I believe I'll be able to start concentrating on finishing the non-3D elements of the game, that is, fine-tuning the interface, saving data, preparing the help files for translations, fixing last minute bugs and checking everything before I release the new version to the community. Phew ! It looks like I'm far from being ready... Well, don't worry, I'm still on time for the December 31, if no other "unexpected problem" happens. I can't wait Smile  I also wanted to notify you that if you tried to write to the technical support e-mail (the one you can find at the bottom of each page), the machine that used to retrieve these mails is being repaired, and after a week or so I've decided to get the e-mails myself... Which of course resulted in being flooded with e-mails, all of which I can't answer for now, because of the huge work on the beta version. And my girlf..technical support manager is very busy with her other duties for now, so please bear with us for the current time. We'll be back as soon as we have some free time !

It's funny how busy I am updating the web site, while it doesn't seem to be very lively here... Well, registered users get all the fun, but they deserved it, hu ? ;p)  I'm now up to the 8th beta release of the game... Every time it removes a few nasty bugs and brings me closer to the next phase of the beta session. Which is good. I'm still aiming for a December 31st release. Although I'm not sure this will be a 100% final version of the new engine. I'm very lazy when it comes to updating my ugly edit box component... Wink  Anyway, I just wanted to drop a note here, to say that everything's going fine here. See you !

Hi everyone ! I'm back from a 3-day week-end to Belgium. It was okay, although a bit boring. Anyway ! I'm up to the 3rd release of the beta version, and things are looking good. There are still a few mysterious bugs to be fixed, but it isn't surprising considering the huge engine change that happened... I'm still targeting a December 31 release date. Oh, and if you're a registered user and didn't receive a link to the beta, may I ask : did you read your original confirmation e-mail ? It contains the instructions for joining the mailing list. And if you already subscribed it before, maybe you changed your e-mail address. Just resubscribe the new address and unsubscribe the old address (if you can). Then, open the archives and read the first mail in it -- that's the link to the beta. Not everyone at the same time, please ! Wink

Today was the anniversary of the last version's release. Six months exactly. The biggest gap between two versions ever. So I figured I had to release the beta version now. And it's done, I released it to my registered users. I'm going to bed now, and hopefully tomorrow I'll receive a lot of e-mails from happy users who tested the beta and loved it. Hopefully, I said. Fingers crossed ! Wink
