Just a quickie for you, installed it and ran it and it couldnt find OpenAl.dll when it finished, but ran fine when run from the Start Menu.

Thanks for the kind words about the game.

Is the problem with OpenAl.dll repeating every time you launch the game with the icon on the desktop? Are you sure that it was OpenAl.dll and not OpenAl32.dll? Perhaps you are running a 64 bit system?

No it only happened at the end of the install process when going to the game for the first time, after that all is fine. Iam on a WinXp Sp2 32 bit box.

spookycat: Thanks for the info! We'll try to do something about it, if we get to reproduce it.

Anyway, keep feedback coming!

The presentation look really slick. How long did it take you to get your game to this stage from concept? (I guess you were building on a existing codebase)

Balaam: reaching beta stage of the game took us about 18 months from the concept. I started programming the engine about two months earlier.
