1.31 Open Beta Weekend

Sorry for the silence. It’s been a helluva week.

We’ve been cranking away at 1.31, and this week was stress-test week. Needless to say, with little sleep, 3 mewling kittens and a mewling kittens-mother, plus everything at work … I haven’t even glanced at the blog.

People seem to be really taking to 1.31. Many people were dubious about eye-candy overhauls, as is the main stay of 1.31. But seriously, this isn’t a few visual tweaks.

Also, once we get the host code changes properly bedded down (the beta cluster runs on 5x dual 800Mhz Xeons machines) there are some minor tweaks that really rock gameplay.
