    Just an update for everyone:

    Still getting the last things in place for the internal beta. Everything is taking longer than I hoped, but I'm still shooting for tonight.

    I probably shouldn't have gone with adding more content for this final push, but it'll be worth it. Just means ignoring the family until Christmas Eve. ;)

    @merenbach
    You're not the only one who's talked about donating money. I do this for free and for the fans. However, I might be a madman for not taking free money, so I might still consider putting up a paypal link on my site, not saying anything and seeing what happens. Maybe. I don't want people to feel like they need to pay me and if they do pay, expect special service or something. And I'd only put it towards server hosting costs. Maybe some beer too. ;)

    killap how does your beta testing stage work anyway? If it's a big description feel free to PM me instead :P I've had enough "oops here's an updated release two days later with hotfixes" experiences with FIXT that I'd like to stop doing that to the public.

    Also, I think you might enjoy this. I have no idea if Mordor is aware of who you are, or if it's just some crazy coincedence. This is unique boss monster from his mod The Hell, the best and most awesome Diablo 1 mod:

    The process basically goes:

    1. I test the hell out of it.
    2. I release it to ~5 people who pm me. They test for a week.
    3. I do a silent release on the forums. It's basically public at this point, but I tell people to keep it to the forum and don't announce elsewhere. Testing goes for ~2 days.
    4. I make a big announcement and other sites pick up the news.

    Nothing special really. I too have been in the hotfix boat before. Inevitably hotfixing occurs during the silent public test, but the hope is to catch everything during the internal beta.

    Haha, nice. I highly doubt that's a coincidence. Cool.

    Double post, but meh, tired.

    Well, it's 3:40 am on Christmas Eve and the beta installer is compiling now. I'll be poking the beta testers that had contacted me long ago to see if they're still around. If you haven't contacted me yet and are interested in beta testing, send me a pm.

    I want to do a bit more testing before the internal beta, but that probably won't happen for a few days - I do need to spend some time with the family over the holidays, you know. ;)

    well, i understand but just like you support the legacy systems i have a "legacy" connection, 56 kbps. ;) (before anyone does the same question: why dont you have broaband? blah blah blah i say this: because i CANT, if i had $$ for that i'd have a computer better than this one too). ;)

    Pixote - TO HELL WITH BETHESDA, these bastards release their games for sites like GOG without any improvements/fixes/support for new systems 32 and 64 bit, aside that, why they would go after killap for accepting donations? He isnt charging p p l for using the patch. ;)

    We know that Killap ain't like that at all, but THEY don't know that and would sue with all haste if they found out that someone gets cash, however voluntary it is to donate, for one of their products. He'd be recieving "their" money for their product, thus intruding on their brand/trademark. That is what they see (and is a legal offense by the way).

    And the beta has been released to the testers (10 lucky ones)! The beta runs for a week and ends on Dec 31st. It looks like we're only partially off schedule here. ;)

    Merry Christmas to all!

    Seems I checked the last page of the thread just in time... I was just going to play F2 with 2.1.2b, but I guess I can wait a tad longer. Keep it up!

    Love you too, Twinkie. Drink up on this fine Christmas Day.

    @parkhwan
    Those who wanted to beta test were to send me a pm. Signup is now closed though; I have enough testers at this time. I'll keep you in mind though.

    Thank you dude.

    --------------

    Well, now is my time to help. I just installed FO2 here on my PC following the instructions about clean stalation. I found some problem, maybe I am wrong but it is said in the changelog if you steal Aunt Malis that cause Karma drop.

    I did it and don't lost any karma, maybe the problem is my game, because that is not the original version and when I play the game don't play any music. (But they all are there inside the folder).

    Can't wait for the Final Release :) I've been waiting for 2.2 since a year ago and haven't played FO2 since... 10+ years ago. I also haven't been able to complete the game, maybe due to bugs or maybe I just got lost completely lol :D
    Can't wait to play it again though, FO2 is the best! :)
    Again thanks to the modders and everyone who made this possible. :)

    1 - to avoid any bad situations never say you have a pirated game. ;)

    2 - you should have read everything from 1st post, this way you would see that: 1 - you can post your bugs in the wikia, it's the best place for that and 2 - you need ALWAYS to provide save game to Killap so you'll make his life easier for tracking the problem. ;)

    Hey fellow Felipefpl.

    Thank you for your tips and orientations, I will follow it. Next time I will put my save game linked here so Killap and any other beta tester can try check it.

    Thank you for your answer.
