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.

5 days left before yet ANOTHER promised release date (end of summer). Something tells me DXR will not be delivered once again, just like it hasn't in the past time after time after time after time... After all - history repeats itself ;).

Generally speaking:
Winter = December, January, February
Spring = March, April, May
Summer = June, July, August
Fall = September, October, November

Of course, it depends on the region, but you can't possibly say expect people to know exactly where you are located and what you consider the end of summer is.

I don't sit here and refresh the page. I come here every so often, for maybe 3-4 minutes to confirm the mod is not out, there is no release date, and then read a few comments, hoping I was wrong. Then I post the obvious and leave.

Occasionally I come back the same day when someone replies to my comments, like today.

I wish I could somehow contact the administrator and ask him/her to post my logins times and presence amount.

Besides, who the hell actually has their gaming rig in their BASEMENT?

OK, I was exagerrating. But it is really necessary to kick the authors every time? That definitelly would not speed up release.

"My advice is to come back on Wednesday and check in to see if anything has happened." Bjorn - Sometime earlier this week.
That makes 2 dates they couldn't keep in 1 month! Atrocious! At this point only one possibility remains. They must be actively sabotaging their own project so that we don't get to play it. That must be it. They are f*cking with us. US the true fans. The only real supporters. Thus I say unite my fellow autists! Monarch, Kiba, ExtraMana let's cleanse this foul place of its corruption so that we may continue to snuggle into our cozy little basements and suckle upon our mothers tits for all eternity. For this is true and most retarded. And I say thankya. Amen.

As I said, that's the advice. I didn't promise anything for Wednesday but I could absolutely say with confidence that nothing was going to happen before then. New advice, check back Friday next week.

Dude. I think that was pretty obviously satire. You shouldn't respond that seriously to a comment like that.:D

Since this mod is to be used in conjuction with the New Vision mod you might have to turn some of the settings down if you want a smooth framerate.

Yeah, the tester noted that his HD3000 didn't have AA at all so enabling it led to huge slowdowns and possibly buggy behavior (my guess is that it tried to do some software AA that was horrible). Lowering AA and anisotropic filtering are the first things to try in any case.

Depends on how much system ram you have and how fast your processor is really. Since this old game and it's rendering system uses a lot of software rendering all of that is done on the CPU side of things, compared to modern games that use a lot of GPU hardware to its advantage.

However we had one tester run it successfully on a Intel HD3000 "card". We recommend the Direct3D9 renderer for those cards (and that's our default we are shipping with) mainly since it's slightly faster then OpenGL and that particular card's OpenGL implementation seem a bit buggy and sometimes prone to glitches.

That ship has sailed a long time ago.

We did ask earlier in the spring if anyone was interested in testing. We didn't get a huge response and it has turned out that most of them are being pretty rubbish by not even reporting a thing (even through I think I must have fixed close to 700 issues since the beta was released). Not all that impressed with the testers tbh.
