Long-Term Storage Of Fighting is Magic Builds

Long-Term Storage Of Fighting is Magic Builds

I’ve decided that I don’t want to host my older Fighting is Magic builds for download anymore since I want Fighting is Magic: Aurora to be the only available Fighting is Magic download on my website so people get the best experience than playing older builds which I didn’t work quite as hard on. All of these files will be going into long-term storage and will be off my systems completely and will be in a Microsoft datacentre somewhere since then I can never lose them.

That’s all for this update, thanks for reading.

Icons Are Coming…

Icons Are Coming…

I had a thought a few weeks ago which went something like, “What if I made my own icons?” Mainly because as you probably know, I’ve been using either Windows 7 or 10 icons for my applications or website and I wanted to change that. Starting from now, I will be rolling out new icons and applications will eventually get updated with those new icons too.

That’s all for this post, thank you for reading!

Art, photography and software in one place…

Art, photography and software in one place…

The Idea

So, I’ve recently been getting into more artsy stuffs and I want somewhere to show what I’m working on/making without it being taken down by shitty left-leaning companies because my artwork does not show what they want or where they want to take the company.

How Will I Do This?

Every time I have some new art I want to show, I’ll make a post and let you look at my work.

Future Projects/What I’m Currently Working On

At this moment in time, I’m currently working on my website by making it more personal to me and adding content from my old personal website, this will hopefully be done by October. After the website is done, I shall be working on the new version of Hub (11.0) which will be re-written as more of a content window for my stuff by using the Gecko browsing engine and will have all new content and different things to do. I’m going to continue working on Hub ESR (10.0) and Vivian ESR until I feel the need to stop working on them since they need completing sooner or later. Tweeter (2.0) is still in the works and I’m trying to make it perfect for release so there’s no bugs on launch. I will also be working on uploading all of the photos I took when on holiday in Tenerife since I have quite a few which are very nice indeed.

That’s all for this post, thank you very much for reading and I’ll see you in the next one.

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.

Why?

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.

Vivian ESR 10.1.1.0

4. Bug fixes and performance improvements.

Hub ESR & Vivian ESR

Hub ESR & Vivian ESR

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;

Flyken
plaindinks
LovingNightmare316
And many more throughout the last four years…

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