Though to be totally and utterly honest, these forums have not been relevant to the project for quite some time.

All the action is in the github code repository..if anyone is expecting any forum action from the project, they will be sorely disappointed. The ANH devs are strictly about development and work to their own schedule to that end, nobody else's and that is not changing any time soon.

The reason for that is the project is still stuck in "development" mode/prototype/refactor stage and is NOT ready for any public usage beyond what is necessary to get past that. I had hoped it would be past that by now, but looks like I was wrong on that one, but that is where it is. No guiding the lily.

So don't hold your breath for any imminent announcements of wondrous things anymore, its down to a tortoise & the hare race, and ANH is the tortoise..plodding along slow, but moving ahead. Can't promise anything beyond that.

Besides, if anyone does NOT like his situation and cannot stand it, 100% of the ANH code and research material is available and open source, and is well documented, nothing is stopping ANYONE from cloning the repos and firing up the 'SWG:ESB (Empire Strikes Back)' project and developing at whatever pace they want unlike other SWG emulators.

I completely understand the nature of the volunteer project. Someone else made a post asking a question and it was over 2 months before someone replied.
I used to regularly come here looking for updates, but since these forums are so inactive now, they might as well be turned into a single page that directs to the facebook page.

The facebook page is a poor place to get information about the activity of this project. Vidi does his best, but it's not always reasonable to post all activity. A better place would be https://github.com/anhstudios/swganh/commits/develop

However, it's important to understand that each developer works in his own fork of the project on github. When changes are ready to be merged into the main development line they are "pull requested". This allows us to code review each other's work before it becomes part of the actual codebase. For this reason you should also watch the activity of the individual developers who are working on the code. ( https://github.com/rcythr?tab=activity and https://github.com/apathyboy?tab=activity and https://github.com/dead1ock?tab=activity and sometimes https://github.com/J-N?tab=activity ). If you setup a github account you can subscribe to each of these repositories and you will see the aggregate of all this activity in your main feed.
