? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
0.1g R5 02 Mar 2004
Mostly minor bug fixes. One possible fix for more serious bug, but impossible to tell for sure as the bug is sporadic and impossible to recreate deliberately
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
New fixes won't appear for a while 01 Mar 2004
I have a lot of "real" work to get through i the first half of this week, so outstanding bugs will not be addressed until Wed/Thurs at the earliest
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Settling down! 26 Feb 2004
The bugs in 0.1g are being addressed, and the most severe one (disappearing garrisons) traced back to an out-of-date script. Good progress.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
0.1g - the beta from hell 24 Feb 2004
Bugs galore, many fairly major. Oh the joys of developing a multi-user web game with only yourself as a unit/system tester! Expect fixes in 0.1h, sometime next week.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
0.1g WILL go live tomorrow! 17 Feb 2004
Honest. Well, at least I hope so. ;) Please ensure that all current beta games are finished as necesary tonight.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Hey, a delay! What a surprise! 12 Feb 2004
Now slated for release sometime during the week starting 16th Feb - due to finding some new bugs and a corrupted MySQL table that has eaten up my dev time
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Beta 0.1g is coming... 02 Feb 2004
... very soon indeed now (barring last minute catastrophes!)
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Slow progress... 08 Jan 2004
The next beta release is now running about 3 weeks late, and it may not appear for another 2, at this rate :( It is a fairly major update mind you, so plenty of new features and bug fixes :)

BETA TESTING HAS BEGUN! AT LAST!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk

Added ability for lords on foot to take one of their rider's horses. Also, there is now a new form to display your strongholds in a summary format

Horses can now be tamed, battle reporting appears to be ok. I have one last bug to fix in the garrison ownership code which I have just spotted. This should be done today or tomorrow
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Wild horses are abroad... 20 Oct 2003
Forgot to mention - I've also added wild horses, though they can't yet be tamed. This is next on my to do list.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Think! 20 Oct 2003
The battle history on the Think page is now working and is undergoing system testing. Once this is done, the Alpha testing can continue.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Minor progress 17 Oct 2003
The new battle sequence has been heavily tested and seems ok. Next step is to update the battle report on Think page since underlying tables have changed.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Work, work, work... 07 Oct 2003
.. it really gets in the way of progress! ;) I've been extremely busy lately, so M/MU has taken a backseat. However, I have now rewritten the battle code in an object oriented way, and things are looking good!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Who's a silly boy then? 24 Sep 2003
Apologies for the dearth of updates recently - I was merrily updating the news items on my development PC instead if the live site. Doh!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Spoke too soon! 24 Sep 2003
Gaz has picked a couple of continental-sized holes in the battle routine which need seeing to. Luckily he also suggested the solutions :)
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Entering final stage of alpha test 11 Sep 2003
Gaz and I are about to test the battle and garrisons code to the limt, given that we now have no less than 3 flashpoints in our game. If all goes well, then we should be approaching the beta phase!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
A few minor bugs found 10 Sep 2003
Such as the ability to transfer troops to/from neutrals! I've also done a lot of work updating the site to use Javascript validatoin (regular expressions, yummy!), but that isn't live yet
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Alpha 0.2b Released 29 Aug 2003
One day in from uploading the 0.2a files and I have already upgraded to 0.2b, following the discovery of a few minor bugs, mainly in the non-player Admin pages.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Alpha 0.2 28 Aug 2003
The 0.2a release will be out either today or tomorrow (decided not to bother with 0.1g). This is very close to a good quality beta, so things are looking hopeful. The stabling of horses has had to go (for now at least), but there are plenty of oth

Added some screenshots of forthcoming version 0.1g 22 Aug 2003
Since the online tour has not been available for some time, I have added some screenshots to the Home page to give people an idea of what to expect.

Garrisons may need reworking... 20 Aug 2003
... as they are proving to be a bit of a headache! Maybe I've just been looking at the same script for too long :/
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Garrison code nearing completion 18 Aug 2003
Once implemented and tested by myself, Gaz and Marie, I will tidy up the "End Game" code and then hopefully others can play (at long last!)
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Garrisons getting closer 29 Jul 2003
The garrison code is now about 50% complete. Hopefully it should be completed within the next 5-7 days.
Also, have made a fair number of additional small changes. Gaz and I have started a new alpha game to test most of this out.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Update 21 Jul 2003
have added the following: transfer of troops to other armies, preventing skulkrin and dragons recruiting, skulkrin always very scared, confirm prompt when ending turn
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Alpha progressing well 17 Jul 2003
There are two alpha games running (6 and 15 days). No major bugs found, combat refined, seeking added (partial), detect other lords nearby (so you don't have to do a 360 scan), personal journal, etc

Prince Gaz joins test team 09 Jul 2003
Welcome to Gaz and thanks for coming on-board. In a mad panic to get it all ready in time for him to play, I fixed about 10 bugs and probably introduced a couple of new ones too!

PHP 4.3.1 works 06 Jul 2003
Back in business!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Slight delay caused by bug in PHP 4.3.2 04 Jul 2003
PHP 4.3.2 running as a CGI module under Apache won't display pages in a browser! Guess what setup my new PC has? Will try 4.3.1. Hopefully I can get things moving again.

Alpha Testing begun 27 Jun 2003
Finally, I have uploaded all the updates and fixes, new features etc. A comprehensive test of the alpha release is underway.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
More updates 26 Jun 2003
I did loads of work on this today, so I'm a few days ahead of my rather informal schedule. The only real biggy left to do is garrisons and ownership of keeps and citadels.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Testing going well 25 Jun 2003
Plenty of buggetts have been uncovered and zapped with the coding equivalent of fly spray. Hurray! Battles are working (except for lords who don't yet take part). Slowly but surely...
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Oh yes it is! 25 Jun 2003
No it does work, it's just that no one ever writes ;-) Actually the mail *was* taking rather long to arrive but all seems ok now.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
e-Mail not working 25 Jun 2003
The Contact page seems to have stopped working. Not sure why, no error message is displayed. Until further notice, please contact me via the Yahoo group (see links page). If you have sent a mail and had no reply, please resend it via my Yahoo prof

Testing phase to start soon 17 Jun 2003
Testing of a partially complete system is underway on my development PC. Once complete, I will upload the files to this site for all you patient registered players to have a go :) Aiming for early July.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Alpha just around the corner (fingers crossed) 09 Jun 2003
Late-night/early morning baby duty has given me some time to cut some code! Struggling to shoehorn my battle algorithm into the main processing, but when that's done then the first alpha will be released.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
New arrival :) 16 May 2003
The birth of my second daughter has stopped all work for now - I'll start again when I have caught up on my sleep!
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Addendum 08 May 2003
I should have added that none of these changes are on the live site. As stated before, I won't be doing any updates to the live site until the first alpha release. At this point the site will be closed to all but system testers.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Linking up the disparate parts 08 May 2003
I've nearly completed the integration of the world with the web site. eg, you can now request new games, accept and decline new games, and most of the start data is now created.
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Still coding 02 May 2003
Just in case anyone wondered, yes I'm still working on this, but imminent arrival of second child has taken priority :)

Added 'Allow e-Mail alerts option' 22 Apr 2003

Fixed email address bug when registering 22 Apr 2003
New users' email addresses were being truncated just before the @ symbol. Not sure when this bug crept in, but please check your details if you registered recently
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
First game has gone live 15 Apr 2003
Though it's only on my dev machine, you can't recruit, you can't fight, and there are no movement penalties! But still, the multi-player angle seems to be working, though it does need some refining. I feel as though I have finally hit a major mile
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Steady progress! 04 Apr 2003
Not much to see that's new on the web site at the moment, but behind the scenes I have been writing the code to implement the whole New Game process, which requires a fair amount of database work. So, please bear with me, I'll get there eventually
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Fixed bug: Error message after registration 26 Mar 2003
I had inadvertently removed the script that confirmed successful registration - this is now resolved
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Fixed Opera display bug 25 Mar 2003
Opera was not displaying latest Tour graphics correctly, now fixed
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Lords' Armies are now displaying 25 Mar 2003
But you can walk right through them without recruiting, and there are no garrisons in any of the keeps or citadels - I have set it up so that they display irrespective of terrain type, like in DDR (more realistic I think)
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Upgrade to graphics engine 19 Mar 2003
Other lords/characters now displayed
Text now describes location ahead
The Foul lords have begun to appear (go say hello to Doomdark at Ushgarak!)
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk

The single-user Tour now displays the current location name - and about time too! ;-)

The site has a new name - Midnight/MU, to reflect the nature of this version. Also, I have made various updates to site validation and security
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Good progress on individual modules 11 Mar 2003
I've implemented the combat module now, though the algorithm will need tweaking. I't is different from the one used in the original LOM, though some similarities persist
? Posted by: Sparrowhawk
Registration operational 05 Mar 2003
Players can now register their details online

News page added 05 Mar 2003
