Title: Official "what is going on" statement
Post by: DaBrain on July 28, 2011, 08:19:17 PM
You may have noticed that we have been pretty quiet for a while now.

Don't worry. We are not dead!
Now less than ever. We're determined to finish this game.


There are three reasons for the recent lack of communication.


1. Until a while a go, the development went pretty slow. We made small steps, but still had problems getting all the main features of the game working, so there wasn't much to show or tell.

2. Recently we have made some bigger changes to the project. We have made a lot of progress recently, thanks to a few very active users. stfx played a big role in this. Until we are done with the main changes we can't show you anything that isn't heavily work-in-progress.

3. Nintendo has not closed down this project for years. They have just released a remake of Star Fox 64 (Lylat Wars) for the 3ds. SoL probably won't have any influence on their sales, but it still seems wrong to advertise another Star Fox game while they are releasing an official title.


You won't hear much from us for a while now. There is a lot of work to do before we can show you anything new. There are some very intersting developments, but we are not ready to let you in on them just yet.

Please be patient. We are working hard to make it worthwhile!

It's okay if we don't hear from you for a while.
It's funny but between the time I discovered this and now, I grew up :biggrin1:

I was like 16, I'm now soon 20, so I grew more patient about things :)

Thank you so much DB!!!!!!!!

I think we were all getting a little worried out there.


Also, I hate to break it to you, but you spelled "they're" wrong.

I want to thank everyone for their patience with our game.

Let’s all make sure to have fun playing Nintendo’s new release and continue to post your Star Fox topics on the forum. It  may be quite from us I certainly don't want to see the community dissolve away.

Thank you Brock.
No way, not in hell, even with their 40% reduction on the 3DS I'm still boycotting Nintendo until they start doing interesting things again.

I'm having too much fun with my Acekard 2 to get a 3DS atm. Besides, I'm broke and I could play Lylat Reloaded for free.

I think I'll just keep playing Baldur's Gate with Jeremiah and wait for my next M rated video game for a Nintendo console. Especially one like MadWorld.

Sorry brock.


And after all that there is a very large supply of hentai games on the internet I can play to keep me going. :)

And if I manage to exhaust all those I suppose I'll just play every game in my library all over again. But first I should probably finish Overlord.

:doubtful: I appreciate the mention of us, but at the same time I'm pretty sure they've had enough of this hack on their forums to be pleased about hearing about it again.

In any case, thanks for the update. I look forward to any future updates from you guys:yes:

Thanks for the update DaBrain, I don't mind having to wait as long as we get thrown a bone every now and then telling us that you're still working on it.:nod:

I seem to have found the algorithm for getting new information, pop in only from time to time. :)

Btw, Brock, I shot you a quick message on MSN.

Post by: mariomix10 on December 31, 2011, 10:18:22 AM
Hey man, I can't wait. Could you use some help? I mean, It depends on what you would need. Do you need any more 3D modelers, a beta tester maybe? Anything I can do to help this mod come out faster, I would be happy to do so.

Hello, guy! Good to have you here!

:welcome to

I hope you don't mind, but I've taken the liberty of shrinking your signature, and turning it into a link. It remains intact, just a good bit less annoying now. Hope you understand :)

As you can see from this thread, and this board in general, progress on SoL seems to have stalled, just a bit as DaBrain deals with other projects and real life.
When he gets back, he'll probably get back to you on your questions.

I think I can answer the question though:
If you are referring to porting StarFox 64 to the SoL engine with updated graphics, then the possibility is there, but the SoL team will not do it.

For starters, surface missions are already not very viable at this time which much of SF64 consists of. When SoL is released, you will be welcome to create a campaign which recreates the 64 game as closely as you can manage, you might even be able to join a team doing just that.

One more thing: Please don't double post. If you wish to add more to a previous post, use the edit button and add more to that post. Thanks!

For me the whole thing sounds pretty dead...

I am watching this project now for how long? 4-6 years?

And I don't see any progress :(

what we all waited for was a playable 1 level demo with your ideas

and I don't understand why you don't go for crowd funding and make a cool product out of it?

thx

Well, projects do these things. Especially when the whole project is mostly one guy doing the bulk of the work and organizing. And that guy is busy. With a job and life and other projects. So it goes, hopefully the project will get back on its feet soon enough. But hey, we've been patient this long, a little longer won't hurt.

In the meantime, over at Hard-Light, a lot of other projects have been finished and released. If you're looking for something to do, head on over! (link in my signature).

Make sure to check out the Wing Commander release!

The reasoned decision issued today by the US Anti-Doping Agency on Lance Armstrong's doping case has been received by the World Anti-Doping Agency,Carbon wheel (http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels)  and a statement of support has come from its president John Fahey.

“We would like to commend USADA for having the courage and the resolve to keep focused in working on this difficult case for the sake of clean athletes and the integrity of sport," Fahey said in a press release.

The Australian confirmed that his agency will now, "as with all cases, Carbon Wheelset (http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels) carefully consider [the reasoned decision's] contents and the voluminous accompanying evidence".

He further supported the efforts of the American agency, stating, “The process followed by USADA has at all times been appropriate and careful, and in compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code)."

The file is also in the hands of the UCI, Carbon Track Wheels (http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/track-wheelset)which has said it would examine the dossier and comment as promptly as possible. It has 21 days to decide whether it would appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in order to reverse Armstrong's lifetime ban.

"Thereafter, WADA has a further 21 days to determine whether we will exercise our independent right of appeal," Fahey said. “In the interim, it is obviously inappropriate for us to make further comments."
