All Guilds Meeting – April 2020 – Cleansed Chatlog

(04/04 13:01:08)Korov’ev: Shorah, and welcome to the 120th All Guilds Meeting!

(04/04 13:01:22)Korov’ev: In the D’ni calendar today is Leenovoo 17, 9675, and the time is 8:03:09

(04/04 13:01:28)Floyd says YAY

(04/04 13:01:33)Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern! You picked the best time to visit 🙂

(04/04 13:01:40)Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(04/04 13:01:51)Korov’ev: 1. Please *keep chatter to a minimum* while speakers are talking. The occasional comment or emote is fine, but be respectful and let the speaker finish.

(04/04 13:02:03)Korov’ev: 2. If you have a question for a speaker, please don’t ask it directly: PM it to me. Be sure a “?” is somewhere in it to properly log the question in the queue.

(04/04 13:02:13)Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.

(04/04 13:02:27)Korov’ev: 4. If a question requires a long explanation, we may have to skip it to keep things moving. In that case, you can always PM any speaker once they’ve left the stage.

(04/04 13:02:38)Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of this meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ site:

(04/04 13:02:46)Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.

(04/04 13:03:01)Korov’ev: So, the CAVCON is back… sort of!

(04/04 13:03:13)Korov’ev: March ended with a CavFunding of 175%, a population of 33,640 explorers, and 1754 unique visits.

(04/04 13:03:36)Dulcamara: Yeah

(04/04 13:03:46)Korov’ev: because of the greater data transfer cost (from lots of new explorers!) and SMS text message costs (also from lots of new explorers!)

(04/04 13:03:57)Korov’ev: Unique visits continue to grow. All in all, a very good month!

(04/04 13:18:35)rarified: Sorry, two keyboards at one time multiplexing doesn’t work when you get old 😉

(04/04 13:18:42)rarified: Shorah, all!

(04/04 13:19:04)rarified: Just a quick update. January and February had good progress on Minkata-alpha, until

(04/04 13:19:19)rarified: we bumped into an age loading issue with the client.

(04/04 13:19:28)rarified: Then March “happened.”

(04/04 13:19:53)rarified: Unfortunately, most of March was diverted to non-Uru stuff.

(04/04 13:20:17)rarified: But the tax papers now are filed, refunds received, insurance claims settled, and

(04/04 13:20:28)rarified: we’re back to working on -alpha.

(04/04 13:20:44)rarified: It will take me a few days to get back up to speed with the deep debugging I need

(04/04 13:21:06)rarified: to do to diagnose the age issue, but that is now at the top of the computer ToDo list.

(04/04 13:21:30)rarified: So, to my Minkata-alpha victims, please keep looking at the Discord OpenUru>>Dev

(04/04 13:21:43)rarified: channel for news about trying things new and evil again.

(04/04 13:22:08)rarified: And… That’s All, Folks ™.

(04/04 13:22:24)Korov’ev: there’s a question:

(04/04 13:22:34)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Atta.

(04/04 13:22:34)Korov’ev: [Atta] I have 2 questions does affect updates to the game? and if it does will there eventually be a fix to the mouse bug on windows 10 included with the client?

(04/04 13:22:44)Floyd says WOW! That’s All?

(04/04 13:23:07)rarified: Yes, there will be a fix. I have it pulled from the GoW/H’uru source code already,

(04/04 13:23:32)rarified: but want to concentrate on the fan issue first. We’re “this close” to making it work

(04/04 13:23:55)rarified: on the official client, and if what I hear about progress on the Nexus front is

(04/04 13:24:10)Korov’ev: in the meantime, Sirius’s fix works quite well

(04/04 13:24:18)rarified: accurate, once we get past the fan loading issue we can run a test period

(04/04 13:24:32)rarified: on Minkata and then… MOULa!

(04/04 13:25:09)Korov’ev: thank you rarified!

(04/04 13:25:15)rarified: Wugzi asked about Minkata. You should look at

(04/04 13:25:18)rarified bows

(04/04 13:25:33)Floyd: sounds really promising rarified

(04/04 13:25:48)Korov’ev: Speaking about fan Ages…

(04/04 13:25:56)Korov’ev: a little update about the Fan Age Touring Club, on Deep Island.

(04/04 13:26:05)Korov’ev: Last Sunday we visited Takla Ma’kan, it was a mighty run through the puzzles and we still didn’t manage to see all of it.

(04/04 13:26:13)Korov’ev: Tomorrow we’ll be visiting Jo’nae, by Jonnee, and if we have some time,

(04/04 13:26:29)Korov’ev: we could go back to see that last part of Takla we missed.
