Its great to see Amiga FPS dream works fast and nice,
people used to say that first about Vampire.
I suppose Genetic Species works too?
Dear Gunnar, you have a healthy and great sense of humor :-)
(1st April joke was nice, but we knew the people).
However Vampire needs a deserved promo, maybe a campaign of showing previews of cores unavail to people should be frozen until they are for public or at least alpha public versions.
"release first announce then" would be a great shift due to ... you know ... past, present and future of Amiga related companies and products, even this joint venture is formally the small player it can be an example given.
Just some timely text updates "next core will have SAGA over DIGITAL-VIDEO and FPU" and then showing some alpha public few months after is for me far more amazing if people can download and flash it and use it at same time. Otheriwize you will have "beta elite" and "others". I do understand all beta testers and contributors are all skilled and great people wanting to show their work ...
Just as an example are 080 ammx optimized ports done by lantus360 - Vintage Gamer (great guy!), we can see them but we cant get them, even they are promised to be soon on Aminet. I know its fragmented individual efforts mostly, but somewhat policy "release for public at least alpha, then spread the word" should be universal. Its both less frustrating to users and better PR. That little hype in between is not worth of later boredom and possible disappointment, especially if thing is not done at all.
