hay will the forth version of SCI Studio be bale to support higher graphics such as 4096 colours and be able to have better pixel quality.It will support all SCI games, including the 32bit ones. So the answer is sort of yes... not 4096 exactly, though... more.
also will there be a mutltiplayer functionIt depends on if any of the SCI Interpreters have it. If you use the SCI interpreter that was used for the imagination network, then it should theoretically be possible.
how far is this version going and when do you expect a release date as i am very anxious to get into itThere is not release date set, it will be released when Brian is finished, so please don't ask anymore about the release date or it's progress, he will let us know what's going on in the news on his site.
are there any beta testing versions that i can have and if so can i have one to help find the bugs and stuffYou can get a beta copy by making a donation to Brian through paypal(he doesn't give it for like $5 and such though, so if your going to donate, don't think you can donate like a dollar and then get a copy, you have to donate a decent ammount to get it), otherwise no, you cannot get a copy before anyone else.
|Danny Roerring||Dose anyone know roughly when the next version will be released please reply :P|
|AGI1122||There is no set date, there is no approximate date, there is nothing to indicate when it will be released. You as well as everyone else here including myself will just have to be patient and wait.|
|Danny Roerring||Yes is there anyway to get into contact with brain i dont think his email address is working do you have one that dose work|

I donated $20 a few weeks back and got nothing, no response, acknowledgment and no pre-release. I guess $20 wasn't enough :(
He gets tons of mail, so it takes him a while to sift through it all so please be patient. And just donating doesn't get you the beta, you have to actually mention to him when donating that you would like the beta. So if you didn't mention it when you donated, please send him an email asking for it.|
And that e-mail, and this board, are the only 2 ways to contact him.
Thx for the reply!|
I've just checked the PayPal transaction and I did definitely request a copy of the VGA version! That's was on the 7th August so maybe he missed it?!
I'll contact him through the board as suggested! I'd like to use the VGA version to extract some data from LSL7 for my LSL webby!
Thx again :)
Hi all again!|
No contact from the busy Brian :( Guess he's just too busy :'( I'd really be grateful if anyone can help me contact Brian or get hold of the VGA version. It would be cool to extract some LSL7 data for my Larry site.
Thanks in advance!
People, I've been waiting for more than a year and half for SCI studio 4 and I haven't complained once. But even now, I still do wonder how much longer will it take.|
But I guess that Brian would get it finished eventually... maybe in three or four more months. I'll be very busy in college (it's my final year!) and I don't think I'll be doing any game editing/making until the new version comes out.
So just wait, be patient, and be calm. It'll come out eventually. ;)
Till next time stay cool 8)
|Danny Roerring||oh comon when is the next version going to be released i cant stand waiting anymore|
Brian has made it quite clear - if we made more games with the current studio, he'd have much more motivation to work on it...so in reality if it is delayed in coming, we have to blame ourselves for not taking advantage of whats been given to us already! |
if we make games, Brian will give us more to work with. if we dont, we cant just sit here waiting. if you want to make a game, make a game!!
