How bout we make some kind of a fool to other people tomorrow? "We're currently polishing up IVAN 0.60 and will probably publish next week" sounds a bit used. So is "The Devs have returned..." Any ideas for tomorrow?

Maybe let's start off with a brief, awesome changelog
+ Werewolf bug fixed
+ Basic missle weapon support added
+ Revamped the NPC talk system
or something. Hm, not much time though.

SIGN UP FOR OPEN BETA ON THIS PAGE sounds like potential.

Hey, I like that Beta idea! =D What should I write in the post?

"We're looking for testers for our upcoming release of IVAN 0.65, who's intrested?"

Looks good. Add a download link, and what will be in the archive (some kind of movie, rickroll, clipart collection or maybe even a legit looking ivan 0.50 archive with some other game masked in the IVAN .exe) - decide Yourself .

I am looking for shitty/funny standalone games though.

Oh, "I wanna Be The Guy" comes to mind. But it's big and we ought to note it in the changelog then.

EDIT: Irfanview can make .exe slideshows. Begin drawing Rondols in mspaint

Ernomouse! Doublepost due to This.

Couldn't find a working way to change the icon, only 2 failures resulting in a broken exe.

Haha, nice. The sad thing is if I hadn't read this topic I probably would have fallen for it tomorrow.

I've been asleep for 13 hours but I still didn't fall for it.

Bravo though, good job on the .exe in any case!

[00:13] <Chao-Chao> Izzy, Erno and I are the only members with 4 digit posts
[00:17] <JimmyJ> Surprise, fairly inactive forum has few posts
[00:36] <@[BOT]Fluffy> especially with you making a giant april fools joke out of IVAN dev
[00:36] <@[BOT]Fluffy> fuckin dickwad

This was on IRC last night. It makes me realize that this joke could have possibly sealed the door to IVAN's developmental tomb.

I think we need to come up with something. Of course by we I mean you guys, unfortunately between my lack of time (and willingness to work, lol) and rusting C skills I won't be able to help.

Yes, you might be right there, Izzy... We just need someone who is willing to do the coding. I personally don't know what more I can do... I tried starting to study C++, but I lack the time to do that on an efficient level.

Capristo, if you can, that'd be awesome.

Yes. As Kahvi said, development can continue so long as there's even one dedicated coder. Sure, in the beginning we had plenty of volunteers, but none dedicated, and they've all gone somewhere it seems. Seems a bit much for cap to have to do it alone though.
