Do not predict too much; the year's not over yet. ;-)

You are perfectly right: I have not so much time. That's why it's not released yet. ;-)

But don't forget that the 2004's contribution can perfectly be released (then complete) in the year 2005. Or 2006 or 2007. Just kidding...

> PLEASE release it !!! :)

I'll do, don't panic. :-) It's just that I have VERY less time this week (because I quit my job in my old company). The next week (before christmas) and the week after it (between christmas and new year's eve) are expected to be MUCH better, and are "traditionally" a time where I get some things done regarding R'n'D. So there's a good chance that you all get fine new levels around (or shortly after) christmas. :-)

That's exactly the point at the moment. And indeed I got quite some contributions the last few weeks and days. If we would have, say, September now, it would be OK to get the first load of levels out now and the rest at the end of the year or beginning of the new year, to have things complete. But now it's wiser to just wait a few more days and then release the _complete_ "Contributions 2004" set. :-)

> I'd say: release them 01.01.05, bow they will really be Contributions 2004 :P

That's right. Well, I think I should do it exactly that way.

(If I should be terribly bored around christmas, I might release it earlier and throw out an update at January 1st, if needed. Let's wait and see... :-) )

Can someone tell me when the 2005 contributions will be released, so I can start making levels for it? Also, has anyone heard of an old Dos game called 'Diamond' It was a pretty nice game. I am working on a levelset that is similar to that game.

Contributions 2005 should be out by January 2006 ;-)
As for the game you mentioned, I don't know if it's the same, but I used to play a great game on Amiga, Diamond Fever, is it this one?

That's right, but let's start with the 2004 set this January. ;-)

So, in any case, there should be enough time to make levels for the 2005 set. :-)

No. Its not diamond fever either. You can still find it somewhere on the
internet. It was a bd clone that had the blade as the firefly, and an evil purple light as the butterfly. The miner was an african-american guy. Not many animations, but still a great game. I was thinking since BD2k3 has some of those textures or graphics, I could recreate some of those levels. The game was not just about collecting diamonds. There were also secrets in the level. So I am starting to make a levelset that will set the mood for an old dos game.
They're not hard levels. They're just fun. I am making them with the BD2k3 graphics set by Alan. 8) My levels will come out waaaaay before 2006, so I'll just upload them on Zomis' site.

Ah, at first I didn't understand that you're making it as a levelset for RnD. That's very nice, I'm looking forward to it!
