General Discussion / Now that Tri..Trip..Trip..something is out..

Actually the menu is rendered in 3d, it sounds like a problem with the alpha blending.  There's nothing we can do about that, but you can try writing your card provider or IBM to see if there's a fix.

First off I was not part of the making of Pontifex so my say is limited but I can tell you a few things.  

Quote: from rrheuts on 12:57 pm on June 19, 2002
yep was afraid of that.. once they had enough of things they would drop it like a brick :/

They have a new toy to play with and let us stand alone. Guess it's the last time i try and help a small company. I thought it would be fun to recieve lots of updates and stuff, editors and maybe the source code after a while. But no.. not even 1 single lousy update after some bugfixes. #### this makes me angry.

At first it would seem to be worth the money, played bb1 a long time, and bb2 some time longer. But after finishing the levels (wich are not that difficult) the fun of building is dissappearing, with bb1 the levels were huge, and bridges were gigantic structures.

Hope you are going to rethink about not updating, i personally think you should try to keep it active. I'm not buying your new game in a million years, i forsee the same thing ':('

Hope to be building bridges in a short time!!

Ok updating Pontifex, sure everyone wants it, sounds easy enough right? Wrong, if part of Pontifex is changed then the whole game has to be re-balanced, this was probably the hardest part of making Pontifex and most time consuming.  Sure it would be nice to do, and it would be fun for the people that own Pontifex, but you have to look at the whole picture.  If we spend 2-4 months updating Pontifex, that is time that we are working towards something that will bring in no money.
Now you can go and say, you #### small company all you care about is making money.  Right let me explain something else, if we are going to make games, we have to make money, I have bills to pay, I have to eat, no one here is rich or independently wealth and never has to care about money in their life.  Sure if none of us had to eat, or needed a place to live or anything else that requires money then ya sure, we could work on updating Pontifex for free for the rest of our life's just to keep you happy.  
As for never helping out a small company again?  So you would rather go pay twice as much for a game from a big company that does not give a #### about you and would not even take the time to reply to this?  That makes a lot of sense, you know what a big company would do if they updated one of there games? They would not give it away for free, it would be called a sequel or an expansion pack and you would be paying for it.  So go support your favorite corporation and for twice the price see how much they care about you and your complaints and ideas.
We actually have worked on a newer bridge building game but could not complete it because of our limited resources.  We also planned to upgrade Pontifex after finishing with Triptych, but because of our financial situation it is not something we can do at this time.  
As for releasing the source code, where did you ever come up with this idea?  We are a small company so we like to give away all our hard work for free.  We have spent years developing a complex physics engine and now we are going to give away all the code for it, to make our fans happy?  So that a "big" company could take our code and make their own games with it to make their executives even richer?  Think about it.

Mirlin have you tried updating your OpenGL drivers?  I am not sure what kind of video card that has, but you need full OpenGL support for Pontifex to run correctly.

Right now we do not have plans to add any features to Pontifex, we are pretty busy trying to sell Triptych.  That does not mean that we will  never do anything with Pontifex, but we dont have plans for it right now.

I think Alex was working on a bridge for the contest, or at least messing around with one but I guess he didnt enter, i told him to hax0r as falkon2 put it, hehe.  We could award the winner of the next contest with a choice of Pontifex or Triptych.  But then what if we enter and win, hehe, what do we get ':)'

To answer your question Chillum, the first thing Pontifex will have is another contest.  As I said before we have started work on a new project and most of our effort will be going towards that, but we will be maintaining our commitment to our loyal Pontifex members in every way that we can.  I would like to hear from the community what they would like to see the most, and see how we can work with everyone's ideas.

First let me introduce myself.  My name is Josiah Pisciotta and I am the newest addition to the Chronic Logic team.  I the new online community relations manager for Chronic Logic.  I would like to address a couple of issues and get everyone up to date with Chronic Logic.  First off I would like to apologize for the lack of involvement from Chronic Logic in the Community.  After the massive push to get Pontifex released on time, the Pontifex team needed a break from Pontifex.  That combined with the frustration we have been experiencing with our web host had lead to a period of very little activity on the Pontifex web site.  As many of you have noticed this forum and other parts of the web site have been down a number of different times.  Much of this down time has been caused by someone hacking into our site and deleting or replacing files.  Also our web host M6 is slow to respond to our needs.  None of this is justification for our lack of involvement in the Pontifex community, but I just wanted to let everyone know what has been going on with our web site.  We are currently talking with M6 about the problem with our site getting hacked and looking for a new web host that will fit our needs better.  I would also like to let everyone know that Chronic Logic will be more active with the Pontifex Community.  I would like to hear what additions everyone would like to see in the Pontifex community.  As for Chronic Logic, I am happy to let everyone know that we have moved into a new office and are working full time.  We will be maintaining Pontifex as well as working on a new project that our Pontifex members will have the opportunity to see first when its ready for beta.

Chillum, we are not currently working on an update for Pontifex.  After the contest ends and we get our web site moved we will look into these possibilities.  We were also hoping that some players would create some map packs for others to use, if ones were good enough we could put them up for download on our site.

Well I can't say to much, but there will be something new from Chronic Logic in the next couple of days.  It will not be Pontifex related.

Grey right now we are working on moving our web page to another web host.  After we have finished with the move we will look into setting up  additional pages for Pontifex.
