I'm still committed to finishing TWII2.0 first, but it has been so long since i've really looked at it, i'm not exactly sure what is still broken. Basically, I need to schedule a test on a server somewhere and just play it for an hour and see what's up.
TW5.5 will still happen, just when is the issue, hopefully within two weeks of the completion of TWII2.0.
As far as the future beyond that, we have some plans, but want to work on them a little. In the next couple of weeks I will be floating our major idea for opinions.
Ok, that more or less updates you. Tomorrow I'll post more on the testing needs I have for TWII2.0.

Oh, and I'm honest to goodness doing tw2 work. Want it in final beta by Christmas.

Ok, TWII 2.0 is almost don(no faster fun speed, as stated earlier it wasn't working right). I'm working on a logging->parsing problem right now. Gonna have an alternate log that spits out html or text.
Also 70% done with Monkey Quake.

Second, I just signed a lease and have a place to live. I should be moved in there by Tuesday. This means the computer will no longer be on the floor and will be in a position that makes typing easier, hence I can start work on stuff.
First to be worked on will be ThunderWalker II since it is in beta it needs finishing most. At the same time I will be upgrading the website to make the distinction between ThunderWalker II and ThunderWalker I clearer since many seem to have trouble determining that the files listed under the "for quake2 onlye" section are for Quake2 only. This will be a gradual process hopefully done in a few weeks. After TWII 2.0 is done, I will set to work on TW5.5 right away. That's about it for now.

Here is the deal: ThunderWalker II 2.0 will be completed, for no other reason than it's not cool to leave things unfinished. Hopefully this will happen soon. I can't guarantee a date 'cause my computer is on the floor of a room in my brother's apartment where I'm living until I get a job. This is a rather uncomfortable way to work, but we'll see what happens. Also, towards the end of November, or several weeks after the release of 2.0, there is a good chance of there being a source release. Also 2.0 will NOT have increased run speed, at least as it is in the betas. It's just not quite smoothe enough or what I want, so I'd rather it not be there, than be there only in a sorta capacity.
Finally, since I got a LOT of pro TW1 mail, and tw1 is currently a mess in the last releases, I will be maybe working on a version 5.5 that will involve me putting all the tw stuff in from scratch again to try to make it solid and pound out them boogs.
Thanks again for all the feedback.

Why should I even bother? There are no servers running TW2 right now, so why should I even work on it, what makes me think there will be servers afterwards? This would be different if we could afford our own server that could handle TWII, but geek.net can't even handle a Quakeworld server anymore.
I get email at least every other day from people asking me where all the servers are, and I have to suffer the embarrasment of telling them there are no servers, which really really bites.
Will I finish off 2.0? I really don't know, if I can find a compelling reason to, I will, otherwise I'm having trouble seeing the point.

Coincident with this 200,000 hit is the 2 year anniversery of a Clan ThunderWalker. In the murky depths of time about 2 years ago, a few strappin' lads at Mankato State University came together as a clan. We had one clan battle and got kicked badly, then went inactive....but there is a *small* chance we could appear for a battle in the near future...maybe.
Big thanks has to go out to Jebidia Theodar Stormwaithe for sending us the Screenshot(167k, opens in new window). Once again, thanks to all.

We are near the 200,000 hit plateau. If you are visitor 200,000, please send us a screen shot.
TW2 2.0 is still in beta and will be for a little bit more, I have some really hard decisions to make before the next beta then I will get it ready.
We received no entries in the manual contest, and frankly that's really crappy. Probably my fault for not getting the word out. contest is extended a couple weeks and I will be posting more info on this later, plus trying to p1mp it to the news sites('cept sCary who has ignored our last 4 emails and I pretty much assume he'll ignore this one too).

I thank you for your support. I'm coming for you Celine! I have heard your call and will obey!

So if some goober comes around and tells you TWII overwrites your ctf directory, you can tell him to go eat some spam! Sorry, this kinda upset me, and in the post someone was lording over that their favorite mod was more better cause it didn't overwrite the ctf directory like TWII did. What a crock!
In 4 weeks I'm moving to the Seattle area. I have no job yet, am just sending out the resumes, but I figured what the heck, I'll ask on the page. If anyone in the Seattle area needs a unix admin, web designer/master or....game programmer :), Lemme know.
Yeah, this was pretty shameless and ain't gonna work, but I don't have anything to lose.(whore mode off)

Quick note on the Manual Contest for Rolling Thunder 2.0. Um...if you're planning to do one, could ya just let me know so that I can be prepared for what may come when they are due? Thanks.

Please do not send us mail in the form of an .html attachment. It will not be read. All .html mail is deleted offhand. If you need to get a hold of us, turn off the .html thingy in your mailer(it shouldn't be tough) then send the mail.
Ok, everyone clear? good!

As one of those who helped him move, I feel compelled to share two facts about him. First, he has a fetish for lots of very awkward, heavy furniture...very heavy. He also has an aquarium that is approximately the size of Lake Michagan, only heavier, much heavier.

This release supports(I think) The Visual Weapons Patch. You are not required to have this to play, just get it if you want it.
With the beta release will also come the announcement of a new contest for TW2: Rolling Thunder 2.0. Members of the Rolling Thunder clan need not apply, well ok, if they want to, but what an odd name for a clan, I wonder how long they've been around?

A really cool thing happened tonight. for the first time in over a year and a half(closer to two years) 3 of the founding members of Clan ThunderWalker were playing twctf on a server. It felt good. Thanks to Zen[tw](formally Shrike) and Zekenator[tw] for being out there tonight.
