The release of wolfman-MC2X (R30) is scheduled for August 31st, 2014.
This release will contain the entire MC2X Gaming and Design Environment.
It will not contain the campaign "Warlords of the Rim Colonies" which will come later in 2014.

I tested MC2X(R30) under winXP, win7 Ultimate (32bit) and (64bit), win 8.1 Pro (64bit).
This public testing prior to the campaign release isĀ aiming forĀ reports of issues to fix.

Of interest are average/standard/mainstream configurations; there will always be specific system configurations with issues.

I actually run now a PC with win 8.1 Pro 64bit and MC2X works just fine like it always did on Win 7 or win XP.$
I do not know about MCO, but there should be no difference.
Ask at Omnitech forum.

Major breakthrough!
I was able to identify the Quicksave/Quickload issues for large mapsizes (terraingrid: 300x300). Not the amount of inventory or the complexity of the scripting was the issue but the absolute amount of movepath restrictions created by the terrain shape.

High terrain complexity + large terrain + lots of trees or buildings = amount of movepath restrictions. This at some point leads to Quicksave crashes.

Simpler terrain for very large maps resolves the issue. I have a design guidline now. Need to find the code parameters to fix for supercomplex terrains as well. The problem for practical purposes is resolved because I know now what the issue is and can create or repeat success or failure or design missions accordingly.

That confirms my observation and testing over a long time as well that the code is OK in general; crashes had always been mission specific and my latest proof is in full alignment with all my observations.

I just finished another mission today: "Radioactive NightMare".
It is a recovery mission after a Nuclear Reactor Meltdown. Your pilots can actually die and be lost for the rest of the campaign if they are exposed too long to higher radiation levels. Maybe I can create a little info video soon.

Give him time, I'd say he'd be able to release by the end of Winter Break to about the end of Spring Break. If the worst goes, then next year summer. Wolfman, you're doing a great job!
