Oh, cool. I didn't know that. Well, that saves me a whole lot of worrying over JtRH... So now I just have to wait for Caravel to release a TCB-compatible version of the hold. :)

Seeing the all shining and bright one hundred percents next to the cursedly blessed yellow bar resembling door, I dived into the deepest depths of eternal bliss and happiness. My lips, made a silent sigh, my soul almost left my body through the spasm of joy. Tears almost came from my twirling eyes. A wide smile, smile, which didn't visit my face for two years, showed, and the amazingly loud "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAA" echoed in my mind.

That's all about how I felt just few seconds ago. Now I'm downloading the demo. I'm going to set my alarm clock to 2:00AM so I can get almost SIX Hours, of infinite Drodish Joy, before going to school! So I can learn ALL the new elements, play with them, find out innovative ways of using them, build in myself the willpower and motivation to continue developing my hold, and then go to school and have a text from Physics... Meanwhile of course developing new and new ways of using the elements, and new twists and turns for the plot ^^.

Aww, I can't wait... I'll have Real problems with getting some good sleep today because of that...

EDIT: I was so touched I forgot to say this one last statement.
Great, great, great thanks, to all you, who have been involved in DROD development, not only those who were with TCB, but to every single person, who contributed something into any release of DROD, because the amount of sweat you had to... Sweat in order to create these masterpieces was enormous! And the fact that you give it all for free (Well, excepting the Plot) is just.. Just... I'm out of words :).

Interesting. I haven't played past the demo yet, but I'll bet half my rank points there's a nasty puzzle involving liches and hot plates somewhere in the full game.

But where is Beethro's ray gun? If the enemies are going high-tech, it is only fair. :P

Meh, nice try. But I'm not buying it. We've already established your unreliability as a witness with the whole Danforth Strout issue. :P

I love the music!

Just decided that I'll play through the entire hold without checking any hints at all. Too bad I'm already stuck... :)

Yup. You just export your player from the demo, reimport it into the full version, and you can restore to exactly the same point.

Aargh! Darn you to heck for releasing another great game during a period when I really don't have time for playing it! There goes my night's sleep for the following week!

Great work, guys.

(hm, any chance I could pay through Paypal? I don't have a credit card and international money orders are tricky...)

I imagine the next thing you'll see will be a couple of patches, then SttD, followed by a long relaxing sigh and basking session :)

Strange, Plimus (Caravel's registration service) should accept PayPal. But i don't see it as payment option on the order page.

Yeah. Paypal isn't accepted by Plimus except for certain items, which do not include CaravelNet and TCB.

You have to bug Erik, as I recall, he has various thieveries and ways to accomplish these terrible feats. I did it for CNet, as a matter of fact.

I'm sad that I'm on the blacklist. :(

In all honesty, I'm one of the VAs, and per the deal, that means I get a CD copy when that's printed. Thing is... I dunno when that'll be, so I'm stuck on JtRH for now. ._.

I could have sworn you guys/gals would get a free "download now - get the CD later" deal akin to those people who bought TCB...

You have CaravelNet - is it on your downloads page? If not, talk to Mike/Schik

Right, all the people who know that they are getting a free copy (either by contributing something to TCB or through a contest) should e-mail Schik, Erik, or Mike (or ideally, all 3 at once so they know who takes care of it) who can activate the full version for you, provided you have CaravelNet, and that you really do deserve it. ;) If you don't, then you might have to wait for a CD.

Game on,

If you are on the blacklist and don't have Caravelnet, let Mike and Matt know and they'll send you a non-Caravelnet download link.

For the record, I don't know of this non-CaravelNet download link, so until Mike lets me know where it is, you should contact him.

Oh, sorry, maybe I misunderstood something, but I was told there was some solution for non-Caravelnet contributors. But if you just buy TCB, don't you get a link that's independent of Caravelnet?

If you buy TCB, then you get a download link from Plimus. I don't know how to give those out, if it's even possible. One thing I could always do is give a day of CaravelNet and the CaravelNet download.

Well another game developer that uses Plimus (Hamumu Software) can give out download links using the same format that the links are sent in the first place, but with them the download link comes from Jamul's email account, not Plimus... And it appears to be semi-automated. If you lose your copy of the game, all you have to do is reply with the email quoted, or some other means of proof that you bought the game, and he hits a button to send you the download again. However, things might work differently for you guys.

Yeah, I'm just saying that I don't have access to the Caravel Plimus account, so I can't do that - that would be a Mike or Erik thing.

Will classic Illumination features like Topic Picks and the Don't Ask Award ever be making a comeback, or have they been swept into the dustbin of the evolutionary process?

They will be back. This last post, I didn't wanted the content to be solely comprised of Terrible Lies and Unexpected Truths. The last two posts, I was just short on time.

TCB is simply awesome.

I've been out for almost a week and a half and I haven't been able to play it before (it's been a hard time ;))

I've already mastered the demo and I'll be ordering the full game in a few days (I'm a little bit too busy right now).

I just want to thank and congratulate everyone involved in the making. It's wonderful. Can't wait to get the full version.

I have a couple of questions:
- Will the music be released in a future DMOD 2? I love it!
- I'm having a little trouble with my European keyboard in the chat because it does not recognise my "special" characters. It's just like if I was typing in an American one. Is there any way to fix that?

Thanks a lot guys

As Erik has said before, due to licensing issues and because DMOD didn't sell very well, it's very unlikely.

That's an issue with the font used, which is Toms New Roman.

I doubt the problem is in the font. It's just that I type a "?" in my keyboard and it places a "+", I type a "'" and it writes "-"...
