Daily Update -- 3/15
First, we had some new Backers yesterday and today, so as always a big "thank you" to them for their support!
Sadly, I'm going to need one more day on this landing video. I discovered a bug in the landing sequence code this evening that I have to fix--I've almost got it tracked down. The new management system I added to support the interactive EFD (which is actually much more efficient than the original system I'd done) isn't playing nice with the older landing code. Shouldn't take me long to get it sorted correctly. There's no need to hack in a temp fix when it'll only take me a few more hours to do it properly.
A nicer bit of news is that one of our backers, Ron Lowe, has offered his talent and time to assist me with fleshing out the history and back-stories of the RogSys "universe." He'll also be helping me further flesh out the Core Module's campaign. Although I have good ideas and a strong understanding of this history, I am not a writer by any stretch; so, his help in this area is much appreciated. Ron is a retired Marine; and while he remains unpublished, his creativity and talent is more than apparent to me already after our initial conversations...
This brings to light one of the reasons I say that even if the Kickstarter funding effort does not succeed I refuse to call it a "failure". Without the exposure the KS has provided I would not have had contact with Ron, nor with many other folks like him who have offered their specific talents under one circumstance or another. I would not have the MANY messages from folks saying they love what I'm trying to do and will support RogSys via Kickstarter or any other avenue. I've said it before--there is no WAY all this good can come from a "failure" :)
And still, this is not over yet. More has been done in less time, so I continue to stay focused and positive on KS to the end, and will remain so on RogSys after that. As always, thanks to everyone for their continued support!
