So little off topic... I ehm.. pre-ordered, and kinda only got a new account and password. So I have 2 accounts now.
This might be my fault, since my paypal is registered on a different e-mailadress.

Thanks very much for the support and welcome to our community Orifiael. Smile
Hope cats finally understand why we stare at flat square hours per day. Dodgy

Hmm, a new, bigger challenge is going to be maybe?

The forge and anvil in the blacksmith room is now completed together with the imp forging animation. This became the longest animation for an imp so far, 16,5 seconds to be precise Smile

Next up is implementing the Piggeh creature, the sewing machine is still being made so that one has to wait until its turn..

So far the my cat seems to approve of BurningPet's design of the building Tongue

(I will post a better picture of it with the next newsletter, I just thought this one was funny Big Grin)

LOL, that's cute. That looks like an awesome cat, Rasmus. Even has good taste in video games. Rolleyes

LOL, maybe someday, your cats will understand why it's so fascinating staring at a flat rectangle with things moving around on it sometimes for hours at a time.Big Grin

In the meanwhile, Welcome to the forums! Cool

(a little late to the party with this turn in the discussion, I know, but yesterday I had my nose buried in a network security book all day and this morning at 8:30am sharp, I wrote the test that went with that book.)

I wondered where you were for the last days Wink

Some more items are now finished as well. To be able to get finished in time I need to finish at least one item a day from the list. Some things goes very fast to implement others not. The anvil and forge were probably the hardest one because I had to get the whole crafting system fully functional (the communication between the menus and the buildings that can craft items). Anyways, I do feel positive that I will get the list done in time Smile

Yes, c++ is the language I work in, or what do you mean?

Oh I was certain of that Smile. Just looking at your naming conventions, and choice of tool. The ones you pay for (pro, ultimate) have a really nice runtime profiler, if you enjoy profiling your code to find performance optimization opportunities.

RE: Left to do before releasing Dwelvers Alpha v0.7
Thanks for the suggestion, I will look into it later and see if it will be worth the money to upgrade to pro or ultimate. I haven't checked them out yet, I thought most of the tools included in those versions are mostly helpful for creating programs as they have a better resource manager and GUI tools, didn't know about the performance optimization opportunities.

There's always the 90-day trials on Microsoft's site (Visual Studio Downloads). You could copy your current project files to another computer or VM to see if the additional features are useful safely.

Yeah its really cool, you set it up and it produces a report that shows you all the method calls that happen when you run it in debugger, and how much time they took. Its a good idea to profile your code (esp in perf critical products like games or servers) at least once in a while so you have some idea of what's really happening when your program is actually running. In big shops, profiling is also not done as often as it should be, but its a shortcut to trying to figure out how fast your code is through static analysis.
