Block Game's script is broken

Dead slimecube

Yes, it's true. Part of Block Game's script has vanished into the virtual limbo for an eternity. It was the part which contained most of Block Game's gameplay-related scripts. The accident happened a few hours ago when UDK decided to overwrite some important data. So now that the script is gone, everything has to be written again. This means we have to do twice the work extra fast to stay on schedule. But if everything fails we need to move the Block Game's release date in order to get the game fully polished and tested before the release. As you can most probably tell, this is very frustrating but we'll just have to make do. If we have done it once before, we can certainly do it again.

There's one more thing I'd like to say in this article. I am not sure how knowledgeable people are of this fact, but we have a twitter account, a facebook account, a youtube account and our own web site (www.betadreams.net), and we would like to see YOU visiting those sites and leaving comments about Block Game or just say “hello”. So please contact us in these websites, like us and help us to make Block Game, Bob The Blob and BetaDreams better known than ever! :D

Ok, silly question, where are the backups?

I don't want to sound rude, but this is all your fault for not keeping daily backups of your work.

For any projects like this, daily backups are a MUST.

Yes, it's very painful when this happens, sometimes we forget and loose hundreds of hours of work, but there's only one to blame.. us... (yes happened to me too, but it's a hard lesson learned).

I wish you best of luck, at least know you already have an idea what to write and how, so some time will be spared, but it will still be a challenge, so good luck.

And while you're at it, this time, by the end of the day, backup (twice) ;)

I had backups and Hilselinko exaggerated the problem a bit, because this is not a major setback ( only couple of days worth of work ;D)
Thanks for your comment, I really should make an daily backup system.
