Little Update

First of all, for those on my journal who I might not of spoken to recently.. here is some artwork I did describing my favourite piece of news. :D
Sketch item

Yeah, I got one. Many thanks and love to FoxB. I even now have 430 Gamerpoints which pretty rocks. :)
The second bit of news is that I went public and have a few people in a closed group testing 'Codename Boardwalk'. Its only for simple deployment testing but I'm thankful all the same. The next version should add some actual connectivity features. If you're interested in the client, give me an IM and let me know. I'm happy to let more on the Alpha test if I feel you would be able to help. ;) Technical knowledge is not required as I'd like both techy users to evaluate it for its stability and so on. More 'I just wanna use it' users to test it for ease of use and user experience. :)
Requirements if you want to take part are as follows:

  • Windows '98 or higher (recommended Windows XP as I am unsure for how much longer it will continue to run ok under '98)

  • 800x600 or higher screen resolution, application sizes to your screen size. I'm looking at the moment for multi-monitor users to test compatibility.

  • If you have the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, 2MB of disk space

  • If you don't have the .Net Framework 2.0 yet, that will require around an extra 100MB of disk space to install. If you want, you can download that yourself via Windows Update, its only 20MB download and then it expands.

  • Running Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 1.5 as your default browser. This is quite important as CNB uses the browser to install its self and its something I can't work around. o.O Once installed, all updates work without the browser through the program its self.

Send an e-mail to nidonocu at the gmail.com and let me know you're interested!

What does CNB do?

It is an MU* Client o.o (MUSH's, MUCK's, MUD's) that sort of thing. At the moment as I said, it doesn't actually connect to anything. But this build was to test the deployment systems.
