I'm Back! (And better than ever)

I'm unofficially back and ready to get to work again. I'll see what I can do about a new release and a new website (or at the very least a re-design) soon.

I have a ton of nifty little utilities in the works too . :)

Sleepy Time for the Dragon

I have some things coming up over the next 2 or 3 weeks that require my full attention. Unfortunately that means that Dk developement and the re-design of the website must be put on hold for a while. If you don't get a reply from me or seem to be ignored that is why.

Good luck to everyone with the new fe and hopefully I can start on the site re-design when I get back...

Dragon King 0.7 Released!

For those of you that have been following the bug reports on BYOAC I have released this version, which fixes all known bugs. If you notice there isn't a upgrade patch this time as I encourage you all to start from scratch. (The list format changed a little as did the listgen is why.)

Also I have linked to the small Faq I have up until I can update the Docs. Please realize that the "documentation" link refers to Lazarus documentation, NOT The Dragon King. Many of the things are similar, but things like quick start and skins are totally out of date.

Bug Status Update...

Thanks to saint I have a sticky thread here. Please check it often for current updates on problems you might have. I will update the main package and the update package to .68 once I have worked out a few of these bugs found.

Until then you are on your own. Good luck!

Dragon King 0.6 Online

Ok I fixed those 3 bugs and found one more and fixed it. This should solve a lot of peoples' problems.

It's just an exe so simply overwrite the 0.5 exe.
The full zip will be updated shortly so check the revision number to the left.

**NOTE** To fix the major bug I had to tweak the lists a little bit. It's no biggie, just delete the files in your "lists" folder and rescan for roms. If you don't delete them it won't hurt anything, but you'll have useless files in there. :)

Only three hours out of the bat and I've already tracked down a few bugs. Some of which could cause you problems so here is the low down....

**fixed**Bug #1 If using a directX screensaver dk won't reinit it's display when you exit the saver. This is easily fixed and I'll fix it as soon as I can.

**fixed**Bug #2 For some reason the marquee generation code doesn't work for status trivia two. My guess is the parentheese are giving the parser a headache. This one doesn't harm anything though, so don't worry about it.

**fixed**Bug #3 This is the biggie. If you generate a gamelist and one of your lists is blank when you go back into dk the second time it'll act funny. Solution? Don't search for stuff you don't have. ;-) This will be fixed soon also, so don't sweat it.

If you have become a victom of the last bug you need to delete the files in your lists folder, remove the offending searchstring and regenerate your list. It'll run great after that.

Ok that's the news for now.... other than that no bug reports of any kind. Stay tuned. :)

***update #2***
Bug #1 has been squashed.
Bug #2 has been squashed.
Bug #3 has been squashed.
Expect a new version tonight. :-)
