Sit rep please....AI yet?

To quote the December update:

Nothing new in December.

Just keep substituting whatever month it is, and you'll get the right answer.

No way that they get the game ever done (right) with only one person working on it (I suppose it's still just Steve?)

Have we ever had a thread that yielded 11 pages over 3 1/2 years that consists solely of lamenting about how inadequate a game is?  There must be some really passionate fans of that board game!

The October update is as follows:

October 4, 2018 Status Report for Matrix Games’ MWIF Forum

Program Development
Today I sent the Public Beta version 02.09.02.00 to Slitherine/Matrix for final approval. It should be available in the Members section of the World in Flames forum sometime next week. To the best of my knowledge, there are no outstanding issues with playing against another opponent (one-on-one) via NetPlay using that version. Of course, the reason it is a public beta is that the possibility exists that we may have missed something in our NetPlay testing.

If all goes well, we will make an Official update to World in Flames (version 03.00.00.00) as NetPlay Ready after the public beta has been in the hands of customers for 4-5 weeks.

Two Hot Patches were made available in the MWIF Forum in September: versions 02.09.01.00 and 02.09.01.04. In September the beta testers received versions 02.09.00.13, 02.09.01.01, 02.09.01.03, 02.09.01.05, 02.09.01.07, 02.09.01.09, 02.09.01.11, 02.09.01.13, and 02.09.01.15. My other opponents in my NetPlay games received ‘Release’ versions 02.09.01.06, 02.09.01.14, and 02.09.01.18..

For September, the average number of new versions created per week was just under 4. But again, like last month, a couple of those were Hot Patches, into which I put some extra effort. To say nothing of the heavy testing the public beta version received.

Bugs
My task lists are current for bugs posted in Tech Support, by the beta testers in the World in Flames Development forum, and emailed to me (including those automatically generated by Mad Except). As always I need to investigate in more detail all the bug reports. But I am mostly on top of the recent ones.

Missing Optional Rules & Half Map Scenarios
Nothing new in September.

AI Opponent (AIO)
Nothing new in September.


As for the AI they just didn't bother to update the entry to October, lol.

But seriously the next version should be the NetPlay stable version. That means the game should be good to go against other people. Anyone who bought it before is going to give it a wirl and provide feedback here?

Maybe, but he's still pecking away at it. You have to give him credit for that at least.

nope, no credit from me....although i appreciate his passion ( or insanity) doesn’t ease the complete mess of a game it was and the fact years later still releasing things to even try and hit original release items.  and don’t forget, on top of that we got to pay a premium price for it.  they knew it was completely broken (how could they not since years later still broken) but yet released it and offered no help to their customers to make things right.  instead they said trust us, everything will be fixed in couple of weeks.  obviously, the developer knew that not to be true.

sorry, this one will never be given any credit by me but maybe that is just my hang up.

Not  bad hang up to have, when they called and priced it as a premium game!

I don't know.... Matrix: World in Flames or Matrix: Game in Flames? Which fits better? I was in LOVE with this game some years ago or at least it's look on the game site. Good thing I got over being such a shallow person and learned not to judge by beauty alone.
