Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.


[July 9 Update]

A few of you have been expressing concerns that Revision is related to Mankind Divided or will be a paid-for release. Neither of these things is the case- we have no involvement in the promotion of Mankind Divided, and have never considered making Revision a commercial product. We are not providing precise release dates for a pretty straightforward reason: We're holding some confidential talks with Square Enix to make sure everything is okay, and to make something cool happen, something that we aren't talking about yet, because it's not finalized yet. We've been having a series of back-and-forths to make sure that everybody on our team is happy. There are no real problems, just technicalities that have needed to be ironed out. At this point (July 9), we're expecting these things to be wrapped up shortly.

Everything is pretty much OK, and we're in a position where we have to talk to some people to make some things happen, and the timeline for making those things happen should be pretty fast, but is partially out of our control. All we ask of you is to please be patient.

I watched some videos on youtube and it looks really good. Reminds me on Heretic and Hexen. How could I miss a game like that when it was released? Thanks for recommendation.

By the way, are there any graphical mods for that game? I already googled but found nothing.

Couple of behind-the-scenes insights from the original dev: worch.com/portfolio/the-wheel-of-time/

I also think WoT was the first 3d game to use portal technology. You heard it here first.

Nice, thought not many would have heard of it.

Think the best "mod" is nglide, which makes it widescreen and puts it in any resolution your monitor scales up to.

Also grab the quicktime fix off vogons, the 333 patch and put the program in Windows XP compatibility if you're using Windows 8.

With nglide it actually looks OK as the game focuses on sprawling outdoor locations.

I believe CC said that they will not post any more updates until it is a "Hey guess what here is the mod" so we will just patiently wait and read bjorn's timely responses to the inquiries here in the comment section.

Yeah I agree, while it is probably true, I trust the posts on here and the main site more than anywhere else tbh XD though it may be good news, another playthrough of DX and then on to Fallout 4 :)

Wooow. This is huge. What do you think? Are 2 weeks a realistic estimate for you guys to finish everything up?
