All Guilds Meeting - January 2013

Another month, another All Guilds Meeting. This time, Doobes was on a well-deserved vacation, so Lyrositor took over moderating duties for this month. As usual, both cleansed and raw logs are available for your viewing pleasures, as well as the customary summary of the event:

Christian Walther

Christian was our first speaker and summed up the recent series of events concerning the licensing problems with Bink, which interrupted the normal flow of development and testing. To be concise, a portion of Uru's code was discovered by RAD Game Tools (makers of the Bink video codec) to contain copyrighted code from their Software Development Kit (SDK). They demanded that the code be removed from all CWE repositories, an arduous task to say the least. Developers promptly began the process of rewriting repository history to remove these files. Most of the work has been acheived by now, fortunately, and only a few tasks remain, and H'uru has already resumed its normal development pace. Read more

MOULa Forums Issue - Unexpected Downtime

At approximately 3pm EST the MOULa forums experienced unexpected technical difficulties.

Chogan of Cyan Worlds has been informed of the issue by Mac_fife of OpenUru.org (and also a MOULa forum moderator), who has passed along this comment to GoMe:

Mac_Fife escribió:

There's a technical issue related to the hosting service that provides the MOUL forums that is beyond Chogon's ability to deal with directly. It'll need attention from others at Cyan once they are back at work on Wednesday. Sorry, but there seems little prospect of the forums returning before then.

We here at the Guild of Messengers are asking for your patience, understanding, and continued support for Cyan Worlds while this problem is resolved. 

 Thank you, and safe journeys within the cavern!

Reminder: Tre'bivdil Stained Glass Project

Just a reminder that the Guild of Writers is still taking submissions for their Tre'bivdil Stained Glass Project!  Anyone is welcome to create a design and send it in for possible inclusion in Gehn shard's various hoods, much like was done for Eder Delin, Eder Tsogal, Gahreesen and the Great Zero in MOUL.  The best three designs will be chosen by a panel of judges from the GoW.

The guidelines for submissions are as follows:

  • The image used must be at least 256 by 256 pixels or larger (up to 1024 x 1024).
  • There must be two images: one full color image and another set to greyscale for reflection (see the forum post for more details on that)
  • The images must be in a "lossless" format.  If you're not sure what to use, the PNG format will suffice.

You can submit your creations to contest@guildofwriters.org by midnight Pacific Daylight Time on October 31st, or 01:00 KI time the next day.  Let's see what this talented community can do!
