Hello!

I was wondering if there is any work being done to squash the few bugs that were still present in the Beta version?

Any update is welcome. :D

Hello, UQM-HD programmer here.
Happy to tell you that we've picked up the pace recently and started exterminating those pesky bugs!

Also in the works is an up-to-date Finnish translation to be included with HD. Not sure how useful that'll be as here in Finland pretty much everyone's quite a whiz in English... But the translation's fun to make! And who knows, maybe it'll invite some not-yet-English-speaking kids to the world of UQM. That'd be cool :).

If you've found bugs that haven't been reported in http://code.google.com/p/uqm-hd/issues/list, go ahead and add them to that list, don't be shy!

(Do take note however, that the list doesn't list already-resolved bugs at default. If you want to make sure you're not reporting duplicate bugs or just want to admire our herculean efforts, select "All issues" from the search-dropdown and click "search".)

superbutcherx,

I take the opportunity of your presence to ask you if you might tell me whether I am right or not. I have the impression that there is not much to do in terms of work to fix the outstanding bugs while the mod itself's ambitions might be crippled by the lack of participants to dczanik's vision.

In view of all this, are you guys going to just release a Beta2 soon that contains the necessary corrections (and the Finnish translation) or are you rather going to put the release on hold till when and if Ur-Quan Masters HD finds the resources to make it really transition into a modern game?

Thanks!

Salk, you're correct. The bugfixes are mostly done and the Finnish stuff requires at maximum a few weeks to be completed.

We would rather (dczanik, correct if I'm wrong! :)) release a new, small beta first before starting to make a huge transitional leap.
