Fighting is Magic: Aurora On Hold

Fighting is Magic: Aurora On Hold

What’s going on?

I am putting Fighting is Magic: Aurora on hold until further notice to work on other projects (Vivian ESR, Hub, Tweeter and YouTube) and real life stuff which I won’t go into great detail about since privacy and all that, I can however tell you that it’s to do with cars and you get the idea.


I don’t feel like I can put enough time into the project without burning myself out. If I burn myself out, nothing gets finished and it causes a delay regardless. (Good job me.)

Is Fighting is Magic: Aurora dead?

No. It’s just on hold. No project files have been deleted and the web site page is still up.

Is this just major versions and patches or just major versions?

I only want to hold major versions, patches are a good thing to have on hand just in case people find bugs and stuff, bugs are quite easy to fix if you know how to use the software which creates the game.

What is happening?

On the 6th August 2018, I will be discontinuing development of all major versions of Hub and Vivian. Since Hub is still in development for version 10, I will continue the development of that version but will be discontinuing major version development for that application later on.

How will this affect me?

This should not affect you at all. Everything will be how it is right now.

Will I still be able to download these applications after the 6th August 2018?

Yes. I will always provide a download to these applications until they are fully discontinued.

What type of updates will not be discontinued for these applications?

Major versions will be discontinued, but smaller updates that fix bugs and optimise these applications will still be released.

Is this like Firefox ESR?

Yes, exactly like that. These applications will get an extended service release of sorts.

Thank You

Finally, we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to either application, helped fix bugs and add new features.

Some of these people are;

And many more throughout the last four years…

Here’s to Hub ESR (in the future) and to Vivian ESR!
