a_bertrand Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 As my previous post has been deleted because it wasn't on the right thread (yes rules applies to admins too :rolleyes:), I will make a new thread for it: Many ask how's the version 3 of McCodes going, when will they have it, and what it will contain. First of all, I'm not linked to the McCodes team but as nobody from them is willing to post any info, I thought it's just right to post what I know (from CB chat for example). Old old history: (July 2007!!! => Proposed Features for DBS/MCcodes Next Ver) http://makewebgames.io/showthread.php/21084-Proposed-Features-for-DBS-MCcodes-Next-Ver?p=138030#post138030 (from march 2010! => "but we should have something to show (be it feature presentations/screenshots/whatever) in the next couple of months.") http://makewebgames.io/showthread.php/36498-Price-ETA?p=240771#post240771 later on in this thread => "A 2011 release date is far from stupid" Then we got finally a private view of something in March this year, where some people had access to a development code. After a couple of development versions... the story ended. We then got the news it should be ready Q2 2012, then end Summer 2012, and now, maybe Jan 2013. To the question will v3 ever come? My answer would currently be: don't count on it, as it's since 2007 they are talking about the next generation of code... and still nothing really released (Redux wasn't developed by them, and is anyhow not considered by CB and Dabs as the way to continue). To the question what would the hypothetical v3 bring: honestly, don't expect any new feature, it the best cases you will have a modular system, and maybe a translation system, that's it. Why do I say so? Well, (the 2 CB and Dabs could show I'm wrong, but till then...) I didn't saw anything really interesting. No new features for the players, and even for the game owner it's not really going in the "easier" to user / develop. To the feature set: as the latest development build was showing: nothing, it's just a port of the old features to some new structure Compatibility? None, you will need to recode your modules. So for me, don't wait for V3, as it doesn't seems to be anywhere here, nor the little we saw wasn't really all that interesting. So move along, choose something else, and make your life with another option. There is enough choices out there without hoping for a product which may never come. Why do I post this? Well as said, I find it lame that the 2 interested do not actually inform THEIR customers, and I'm sick of repeating always the same thing: V3 is not here, and it may never be a real product.
