As the feature freeze comes to a close, we’d like to extend our sincerest apologies for the extended downtimes experienced during this period. It seems the ghosts of Tyria decided to play some tricks during the feature freeze, causing unexpected hiccups. But now, it’s time for a treat as we unveil our reprioritized development efforts. Without further ado, let’s delve into the exciting plans we have in store for gw2cc.
Priority 1: Redesigning Attach Mode
Our first and foremost priority is to give Attach Mode the makeover it truly deserves. Attach Mode was not initially in our plans, and its current implementation is quite crude and unstable. You might have noticed some transparency issues cropping up, especially with recent GPU driver updates. Fear not, for we’re determined to address this issue comprehensively.
Our development team is committed to redesigning Attach Mode from the ground up, ensuring a seamless experience for everyone. As part of this revamp, we’re also exploring the addition of Vulkan to DX11 rendering, aiming to harness the latest in graphics technology.
However, it’s important to note that this redesign might require you to start GW2 through gw2cc, as there are some issues with delaying attaching until character selection. We’re aware that change can be a bit spooky, so if you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to voice them.
Improved Installation Process
In the spirit of making your gw2cc experience as smooth as a crisp autumn breeze, we’re committed to overhauling the installation process. Let’s face it, the current procedure has been a bit like navigating a haunted maze, and it’s high time we simplified things for you. Our primary goal is to streamline the installation process, addressing those pesky pain points that have been haunting players, especially when it comes to symlinking. The new installation process will be not only more user-friendly but also more robust, ensuring that you have a stable platform to venture into Tyria.
China Support (Beta)
As the winds of change continue to blow across Tyria, we’ve been closely monitoring the increasing demand for supporting GW2 CN. We’re excited to announce that most of the roadblocks that previously stood in our way have now been cleared, and we’re actively working on beta support for our friends in China.
However, it’s important to note that, for the time being, our primary focus will remain on the EU and NA regions. We want to ensure that our existing user base continues to enjoy a top-notch experience. Rest assured, our commitment to supporting the GW2 CN community is strong, and we’re taking measured steps to ensure a smooth transition.
While we’re making strides to accommodate the GW2 CN player base, it’s crucial to mention that we won’t be able to provide support for China-exclusive features. We don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade or steal anyone’s “red envelopes,” but our priority remains to provide a consistent experience for all our players while avoiding any unforeseen surprises.
Last but not least: Physics Rewrite
Sometimes, even the most experienced adventurers find themselves in territory more challenging than expected, and our physics rewrite is no exception. What was initially anticipated as a straightforward task has turned out to be quite a bit more challenging.
To address this challenge, we’re preparing for a major overhaul of all agent functionality. This is no small feat and will require a significant effort from our development team. But worry not, as the development of this critical feature will soon be back on track.
We value your insights and expertise, which is why extensive beta testing will be a key part of this process. We’ll be especially looking to script developers for their feedback to ensure that this overhaul aligns with your needs.
In the end, this endeavor will lead to a more consistent experience. As part of this, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be fully moving the gameplay mechanics to GDScript, simplifying future development, and enabling the community to contribute.
As we move forward, your input and support will continue to be invaluable. Your feedback and engagement are what make gw2cc thrive, and we’re eager to have you along for the journey.
Thank you for being a part of our vibrant community, and here’s to a future filled with epic adventures, thrilling challenges, and unforgettable moments in Tyria. Happy gaming, and stay tuned for more updates from gw2cc!
