Default SE5 progress

Anyone got any information on how its coming along - has beta testing begun (dont tell us details - perhaps just that you are taking part and SE5 is moving forward) if the non disclosure statements allow for that ?

It's supposed to mean that this group turned into the "l33t" club for SE5 discussion not for everyone, right?

Sorry for offense Gandalf, but the original post sounded not very good too.

By "this group" you mean the forum here? I never saw this as an elite group. Quite the opposite in fact. Its a very open and friendly community. Or is it the yahoo group you meant?

[Londo Mollari accent] You EEEDYOT! [/Londo Mollari accent]

Most people have forgotten that email list after the Shrapnel BBs took over as the main support forum. Now you'll see thousands of people jump back on there and you won't get near as much information, let alone input, as Aaron has to quit posting or even reading under the sudden explosion of traffic!

I am afraid that the light at the end of the tunnel that was SEV has been turned out do to fiscle (sp) cut backs.

Call your local gamer and have them buy SE IV and Starfury in order to fund the electical costs for the computers needed to produce SE V.

Yes I spoke about that yahoo group. And Baron's comment just confirmed my suspictions

Well it's usual dualism, afterall: if you're too open to suggestions - you're flooded, if you're not - no feedback at all. Should be the golden mean there, but it's difficult then where's thousand plus one fans who have their own opinion about the next game
