Funcom employee Friday with Means - November 19th, 2010: The Sky is Not Falling

The Anarchy Online store is up and running...and the sky has not fallen. I am sorry that the first discussion of items did not include the "approximate" prices that some of these items would be having as I think that would have reduced a lot of people's anxiety about their addition. I am very relieved to have it out so I can once again return my complete focus to improving and adding to the game itself.

Needless to say, the more important part being the update itself which contained many very significant changes. For the most part it has gone smoother than we could have possibly expected (considering we replaced the entire input system for the game...among many other significant changes)...but of course there have been a few issues. We have been working on these issues for the past few days and hope to have a new version on TestLive this weekend.

Code changes for the next version on TestLive:

Add 'unlock all' menu item to wear view to unlock all locked items.
Fix copy/pasting (copy key is now bindable).
Clear selection on pressing esc in text input view (crash fix).
Improve bind dialog and bind window.
Fix stuttering camera y-controls when using RMB steering.
Alt+enter in chat window no longer sends the message / loses focus.
Ctrl+tab to change channel in chat view now works.
Add itemshop to "/open" command.
Add global (ovveride text input) left right up down control binds (alt+arrows by default). (Steer your character while typing...but still be able to select text with the arrows.)
Rendering fixes for browser on ATI/AMD.

The first version of the "Shade Nano Document" has been delivered to the professionals this week for their review...so I imagine they will be available to everyone next Friday.

The character heads are nearing completion...going to be fun to create a "here are ALL the heads" page at some point.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Edit: Oki, had the time to read through it and think things through.

Good things to be fixed it seems.
Some screwups in the last patch that will be fixed soon(TM) I guess.

Now..
How is work on the engine going? You said in Oslo that you were waiting for the engine crew to be done with the total overhaul of the engine, so you could weed out the last bugs. Time estimate then was said to be 1-2 month for that work to be done. Then an aditional few months for you to get the last things done.
Are we there yet?

Rebalancing:
Shade is next, and we got a some other docs already.
What's the estimated timeframe for the rest of the docs to come,and in what order are you planning to release them?

nth, & inb4 dirtbag.

I'm dead happy with 18.4 so far, with one exception. I miss being able to steer with the left and right arrow keys while I'm typing. I find myself running into walls even more than usual these days

Find it amusing that the entire discussion from last weeks FWM, is totally bypassed by the developers. The playerbase has no saying anymore.

Means, please include:
- option to disable new nano icons/borders
- option to disable Item Shop (for those playing on Linux....better to get money from their subscription only than none at all)

Also, did you break news to Dev team we'll need whole new sets of Christmas and Halloween items? If same keep droping this/upcoming years, nobody will buy them from Store (fail) and those who already bought them will whine.
