Now that the demo is out, the plot and other aspects will be finalized, reviewed, and perhaps revised if needed. We're going to try and finish all we can simply so we can wait as long as it takes for Temporal Flux 2.0 to come out, as it should afford much easier editing and require 1/4 less the time it'd take to edit the game otherwise. I'm going to go ahead and make the armor thread before Daniel returns; he can take it over.

As for the demo, there are several bugs yes, primarily because the final round of bug fixes messed something up 15 minutes before midnight on the birthday. I'm going to add those opening scenes and try and fix everything else; maybe even make more changes, and then release the demo as version 1.1.

Once 2.0 comes out, we can tidy up any plot or planning left and go full speed ahead with modification. Chronopolis will be the primary target.

I should be able to get more time in on Flux here in the near future.  I am finally getting settled into my new apartment in Fort Wayne and my computer migration is nearly complete.  I cannot estimate an exact release date because I have a number of bugs left to fix and not nearly as much time to work on the program as I did during my tenure at my previous employer.

We'll make as much use of the off time as possible. I heard you have a terribly long commute; is it a "wake up at 5 AM" type situation? I couldn't fathom living in a place like Dallas, Texas, for instance. Wow.

The commute to Fort Wayne from Indianapolis (where my home is) is 150 miles, and takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

How much do you have to pay for gas?  It might be cheaper to move.

Hey, what's wrong with Dallas, huh? >_<

I have an apartment in Fort Wayne.  And the company is paying me tax-free money for expenses (to the tune of $10 per hour).
