Hi folks,

For anyone following the project there are a bunch of new screen-shots on the Nova homepage:

Interesting! Cool

It could be nice to have dates next to the things you're posting to that page, so as to better see progress, or even tell if the downloadable files have been updated. Rolling Eyes Wink Whip



So many Stars, so few Missiles!

Hi,

All of the pages have, or should have, a "last updated" date in the footer of the page. Not ideal, I know, but better than nothing Razz

I've added the date of the last source code update to the home page so that you can see how up-to-date the source code on the site is (it's just next to the link that takes you to the code).

I like the idea of a "what's new" section and I'll add that in (at least in a primative form to start with).

The problem for me is that I've no idea how many (if any) people are interested in this little hobby of mine so I'm not sure how much time I should spend on the web site (I work on it during my commute to-and-from work on the train).

So, if anyone following this thread who is interested in Nova would just like to send me an "hello" e-mail that would be a great help in deciding how much effort I should devote to letting people know what's happening. My e-mail address is on the website.

So far, I only know of 3 people who think it's an interesting hobby project so I haven't said much on my little web site.

The latest news is that Nova now has a battle engine and is now a playable game - full of bugs and nowhere near the full features of Stars! (probably about 70%) but, hey!, like I said, this is just a hobby for me to learn about C# and .Net.

Thanks for the feed-back, it makes my little hobby more pleasing if it interests other people.

If there's anything else you would like to see ... just ask and I'll see what I can do.

Cheers!

Ken

You should add a hit counter. I added one to my Stars! clone page and it has a grand total of 75 hits. When you subtract out my family and friend's hitting the page that has to be 10 or 20 total outside hits! heh heh. Smile

Web page update:

Extra screen-shots added (under research and production) and a "What's new" page added as requested.

I would like to help you.

I just learned C# myself and after a long hiatus I am ready to get back into things. I started the GStars! client but never quite finished it. wxWidgets isn't exactly fun and .NET is far easier.

I downloaded the source from your "Initial Release" (Nova-29-04-07.zip) and sadly cannot get it to run! It seems to hang on accessing a registry key. I can send you details if you like. It may take me a while to sift through the program and figure out all of what you've done. It's quite big. Any documentation would be helpful.
