AI War 2 v0.758 Released! “Release The Warden”

Release notes here. A collection of bugfixes and balance fixes, mainly. The big news is that the Warden and Hunter fleets now get off their butts again and will actually come after you in a majorly scary way.  The Dark Spire also spawn at a more menacing rate, and the minor factions no longer do the […]

AI War 2 v0.756 Released! “Retrieval of the Lost Arks” Plus an Essay, Apparently.

Release notes here. Okay, this one has some huge marquee features, and I have some other things on my mind, too.  Let’s get to it! First off, it’s pretty obvious that there are absolutely copious numbers of bugfixes in here.  Also, if you downloaded this build within the last couple of hours, then you’ll want to […]

Arcen #loveindies Giveaway!

We’re taking part in #loveindies week! If you’ve enjoyed any of our games and want to give a brief impression, or even just a thumbs up, that’s a really big deal to us. If you feel the burning need to go in there and warn folks off of one of our titles, that’s of course […]

AI War 2 v0.750 Released! “My Friend The Marauder”

Release notes here. Lots of happiness in this one!  So first, a picture for you: I have absolutely hated how the forcefields looked in this game ever since the start.  I’ve kept working on new versions, but never was happy with them.  Thanks to work by Oranged Keys, we’ve finally got a version that makes me go ooh!  As […]

AI War 2 v0.749 Released! “Release The Hounds”

Are you a programmer interested in helping out on a multithreading issue?  Be sure to see the bottom (or this forum thread). Case Study of Modding: Marauders Before talking about the release or multithreading, this is a great time to talk about the power that our Modder #1 (and volunteer developer to boot), Badger, has been […]

AI War 2 v0.748 Released! “Macrophage Teeth”

Release notes here. This week hasn’t exactly gone as I expected, but it’s been very productive.  I had planned on working on the lobby, first of all, but then some performance-unfriendly saves came to light and I decided I’d work on that instead.  The biggest hog in large battles is the vis-layer movement of ships around, […]

AI War 2 v0.747 Released! “Improper Handling Of Forcefields”

Release notes here. We remain back on a quicker release schedule, now that we’re past that initial hump of the pivot.  At this point there’s a fair bit to clean up, though, so I’ve been focusing on that instead of heading straight for the lobby revamp.  I’m pleased with the progress that we’re seeing, based largely on […]
