Emergency downtime

Our website was down for an hour due to emergency maintenance. Everything is back up and running now. If you tried to purchase something during that hour and it failed to deliver, please contact me in-world.

New Follow Me v2.2

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

I've released a new version of my Follow Me HUD. It's free to all current owners.

For those who haven't seen it, Follow Me lets you teleport around the grid with your friends. Simply have everyone wear the HUD, and when one person teleports, the others will teleport with them. You don't have to send everyone a TP, it's all automatic.

It used to work by sending everyone a TP link which they could click in their chat history. It still does that, but now you can enable Auto Teleport mode, which uses the just-released TeleportAgent capability to teleport you automatically! No clicks or map popups needed.

There are a couple of caveats. It doesn't yet work with all third-party viewers. And some regions are are different "channels" (eg, Magnum) which don't yet have a working copy of the llTeleportAgent command. But I'm sure all the third-party viewers will soon release updates to take advantage of this capability, and the sims will soon have current software.

So give it a try, and let me know if you can think of any improvements.

New En Garde v1.16

Saturday, July 21, 2012

I've released version 1.16 of En Garde. This is mainly a bug-fix release. All owners are invited to upgrade free of charge.

You can upgrade by deleting your current game, and delivering a new updated copy to yourself, which you can then rez. To get a new copy, you can either

  • Use your En Garde Remote. Wear the Remote and say "/8 deliver game"
  • Visit my in-world store, and touch the En Garde vendor
  • Visit the Customer section of the Procyon Games website, find your En Garde license, and click the Redeliver link

This game comes with a new version of the game HUD. Your players must use the new HUD when playing on the new game (it won't let you play with an old HUD). Everyone can get a copy of the new HUD by clicking on the game and then the Get HUD button.

Release Notes:

  • Fixed a bug that allowed the HUD and main game to get out of sync, resulting in "Invalid card played" errors.
  • Fixed a bug that would not allow payment to be enabled for some Commercial licenses
  • The game no longer says "times's up" when the deck runs out at the end of a point.
  • The HUD no longer offers a player the option to Parry an Advance-Lunge, if the player doesn't have any of the appropriate cards
  • When doing a Last Second Attack, the appropriate cards are hilited in orange.
  • The game gives players a link to click in chat, to see their ranking on the Procyon website

Looking for Play Testers

Saturday, June 30, 2012

I'm looking for people to help me test the next version of En Garde.

Testing mostly involves you standing around for long periods of time while I curse at Second Life. But you have to be ready at any time to jump back in and play, until the game crashes again.

If this sounds like fun to you, and you have a free group slot, then IM me and I'll send you a group invite.
