I just want to let everyone know what's been going on lately :) As I've said before, we're working hard to spread the community world-wide. While I can't go into much detail for it, I'll say that part of the reason that we're taking so long on this particular project is that we're working with 2 other companies, so we have to go at THEIR pace. However we're starting to get back to working on normal things now!

-Dagnor mentioned to me today that he's going to work out the Co-Op queueing issue before anything else
-nfntp said the new website will be done within the next few weeks
-I'm looking into how to rearrange the stats at the top of a tournament lobby (ex. Name, Date, Players Remaining, all that stuff). So by the next update (or maybe the one after that) you may see a pretty substantial change there!
-Thanks to Schlumpfi, Heinzel, Jojo, and LordDerbe, the game is being translated into German! At Bandera, we intend to only have 1 game client, not different clients for each language. This is why you've seen some pretty big UI changes that seem bad for English (such as the Options window being much bigger now). We are trying to make the client fit 3 different languages because as we add more and more languages, it'd be too hectic to make the same fixes 3+ times and since we're such a small team, we just can't do it.

So that's all in the works now! What would YOU like to see next? Post here and let us know!

This is great to hear ; ). I hope this game can rise from the ashes.

Also, if you guys ever need help translating the game into Spanish I could help, as I'm a law student so I know how to use my mother language pretty well.

that's awesome Steppen :D I'll forward that to dagnor and let you know if he tells me anything!

Is there anything not listed in the OP that y'all think should be one of our first projects as we go through the endless list of things that need to be done? Let us know how we can make the game/community better :D

I'll relay this to dagnor :) Will probably be what he does next after he fixes public co op

In my opinion, the mapmaker isn't that essential in the game's current state. Maybe when we get most of the bugs out of the way and are wrapping up the work. I know things are going monstrously slow, but there's only 3 or 4 of us that work on the game, and dagnor's the only one that is able to work on anything -- the rest of us have limits (ex. all I can do that directly effects the game client is the UI changes, nfntp mainly focuses on the website).
However I don't think we'll see custom games in BattleDex like in StarCraft. Trust me, I DEFINITELY get where youre coming from (been playing nothing but StarCraft II for months and I've made several custom maps in the mapmaker -- that's actually how I discovered that I like programming so much and decided on my future career!). But a mapmaker with so much versatility like that takes a lotttttt of time and even more work. While i'm sure we'll see a public mapmaker once we don't have some big stuff to work on (such as public and private co op), I'm sure it will be simple a way to make maps, not custom games (yet!)

Do the devs know what causes the "phantom" players to exist on the client? There are always 7 or 8 players that are not online but still show up as if they were in the client.

It is frustrating when I go online and I assume that everyone that I see on isn't really there. If the list was accurate I'm sure I would play more games and the devs would get more feedback on issues/bugs for the beta. As it is the only consistent way to get games is weekend tourneys/facebook group.

I'll take care of that if I can -- I'm pretty sure I know how to fix it, but not 100% sure

I know its way too much to ask, but I would like to see an actual AI opponent that you can play against on the standard PvP maps. :lol:
