Just a head's up, Beta 3 is scheduled for April 12th.

The Beta 3 series of Fallen Enchantress will be revolving around faction differentiation. It also contains a lot of tweaks and balance based on player feedback.

Sounds good! Do any of the included tweaks include improvements to the AI?

I will be in Queensland from the 12th to 20th no chance to play. Would have been nice to have over Easter.

Oh well, I guess when I come back I can read all the entertaining whining feedback

Could we get a change-log to salivate over?

If a change log would be too long, how about a list of the major changes?

Two weeks for beta 3. I can live with that. Are we starting Faction Difference at that point or have you been adding it this whole time and we are now going to test it?

We'll have begun adding unique factions but we won't have finished. We'll be looking for feedback on the first couple of unique factions to see if we're on the right track.

Then Beta 3A, 3B..etc. will evolve on the rest.

hmmm, bad timing.

On April 11 a Dungeon Master / Eye of the Beholder clone gets released. I might HAVE to check that out

Quoting Sareln,

I'd like to add my vote to this request as well.  Or, if it is too early for such, perhaps (as suggested by xaltotun, in Reply #11 above) we could at least get a list of the "major changes", in advance of April 12 ?  That will help me to program my busy life ...    ...

And while I am on the subject, the two things I would look for most, on either type of list, would be (1) Bug Fixes, and (2) Tweaks that have been made to improve performance.  I know you are highly incentivized to add to, and improve, gameplay content; so I don't worry about that.  The things I worry more about are performance issues and bugs.  (I understand that my viewpoint may not be entirely fair, at this point, since Mr. Wardell has stated elsewhere -- in the "Stability Patch?" thread, for one example -- that we really should not expect a highly stable program, until at least the middle of summer.  I understand that is partly just the nature of an iterative design process.)

Beta 3 sounds like alot of fun then. I think FacDif is the most interesting thing to discuss. Maybe you devs could compile some lore for each faction in a dev post soon? That would seem to be the best thing for making sure all of us are on the same page. For instance, Umber and Yithril seem very similar if the lore is not known.

Loved to finally hear when the next Beta is arriving. I like the concept of continuing to tweak and improve the factions/races with 3A,3B,etc. Just think- you're far enough into the game now that you can focus on content. That's got to feel great!

Im trying to play the Beta, it keeps crashing just like the original Elemental game. I can only get 20-30 turns. If I load a game it crashes on first turn everytime. Could you guys please fix this
