Back on track with the remake

After much deliberating I cancelled the project that was keeping me from working on The Endless Forest remake. There's still a bunch of other things getting in the way but I can now again dedicate a good chunk of every week to working on the game.
This month my focus has been the environment changes that happen on feast days. I was able to resolve some technical issues relating to networking in an imperfect but acceptable way and have tracked down and implemented all assets.

Merry Christmas!

Hope you are all having a lovely time in these darkest days of the year. But as Auriea says: Winter is simply the time towards Spring. Every day will be longer than the previous day. The light is coming back!

Merry Christmas to all my dear deer!
Best wishes!

I'm afraid I have been a little optimistic. :_(

The commissioned project I am working on ran into some annoying technical problems that haven't been resolved yet.

And I wanted to start using a new version of Unreal Engine for The Endless Forest but I wasn't able to compile it from the source code. And this is required for building a dedicated server. So I will stick to the old version for now. Hopefully the source code will be fixed.

I hope you enjoyed Halloween this year! We certainly did. Even though I can't wait to do this in the remake!!

Anyway, Without being able to make any promises, I will try me best to free up as much time as possible for The Endless Forst. But I might also be traveling back to the old homeland this month since I haven't seen my parents or brother for almost two years, because of the pandemic.

I guess it's a good lesson in patience. :-/

On my way


For the past two months I have been working on another project, raising funds for the continuation of the remake of The Endless Forest. The other project is not entirely done yet and might in fact lead to something quite big later. But I will carve some time out for working on The Endless Forest again as of now. Because it would be nice to have a new build for Christmas, right? Smiling

Sorry for all the delays. Thank you for your patience!

Peace to all,

The game is up

I have updated a bunch of scripts to the requirements of the new server and it seems that logging into the game works again. Please let me know if you run into any errors!

A little patience

The web server that takes care of the login has been moved but there's still some technical issues. I will look into these next week when I get back to my computer. I'm currently off work because after a year of not seeing them, my children are finally visiting my home. Thank you for your patience. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Endless Forest doesn't work at the moment

The game server that runs The Endless Forest is fine but the game relies on connections with tale-of-tales.com. And the old computer that hosted the tale-of-tales.com domain has broken down after many years of loyal service. The entire website needs to be moved to another machine. This will take some time. Sorry about the inconvenience.
