schwar is working extremely hard this week to a deadline to finish the final build of version 1. Please understand that he will likely be out of contact for the next three of four days. Malone and I will try to accommodate any questions that you might normally address to schwar.

He is currently trawling through 56,000 lines of code to optimise and fix bugs in version 1. Let's all wish him luck!

Hi
poor schwar
smile
yep...all of AlamDV is kinda pretty busy just
now.
From what I get Great One, you, Schwar, and the rest of the team are scrambling to make a MAJOR publishing deadline. I heard talk of a large distribution in some kinda pc mag next month. Several tens of thousands of copies.
Sweeeet!
Congratulations and hats off the the enitre UK team.
Nice to know that all of your efforts are gonna pay off and FINALLY the AlamDVhas come back to major headlines. Don't spend any time responding to this post...you've too much work to do.
Looks like we all need to tighten our belts another notch and get ready for the next flood of action.
hehe
gee, come to think of it...the last 6 months have been really exciting around here!
good fortune to everyone!

Thanks Big C! Schwar is currently reprogramming version 1 to be quicker and bug-free. I, on the other hand am at work (my day job in a computer shop) and so am able to respond to your salutations (with a tear of gratitude in my eye).

I'll be looking at repairing some of the less amazing plugins for release with the new version tonight.

Just wanna say thanks to everyone who's helping us hit this deadline at the moment...
we're nearly there

Schwar is re-programming to create a bug-fixed, faster, prettier, more efficient version of ALAM 1. This is due for distribution on a cover CD around the world in October (September).

For those of you who are current ALAMDV users, fear not... because you paid for your version(s) you will be able to upgrade to version 2 for FREE. Those who get the free version on the cover disc will have to pay for version 2 (albeit at a discount).

This cover cd stands to increase our userbase by huge amounts and is very important to csb. It would also herald a new era for you users aswell... with an increased user base the potential for new plugins, advice, contacts and movies is greatly improved.

I'm sure that you all understand how important schwar considers it to create a final version of v1 that will draw new users into the fold, which is why he's working so hard to perfect it. I'm sure this latest and last build of v1 will also be availiable to you guys. After all, you deserve it (and your free upgrade) for all your support.

These are all the details I can give for now, I hope that I haven't given anything away that I shouldn't have. As I am not an official member of CSB digital please do not hold the team liable for any inaccurate statements on my behalf.

Hi Everyone.

First of all - thanks for all the nice comments. I would just like to say we are all working hard here, not just me. Everyone has been great. I would just like to do a little shout out to the people that make my life a little easier:-

Craig, Malone, The Great One, Codec3, Animaster and Blueshift - you've all been great and I really appreciate your help.

I'll fill you in on the magazine deal soon. I'm now into my fourth day with only 3 hours sleep each day and I'm beginning to die.
I was just going to fix AlamDV build 141 - instead I've gone a little further. AlamDV 1 Final is really AlamDV 1.5. It has been 90% reprogrammed although it still has a very similar interface.

I think you are going to like it - I guess I'll find out - you are gonna get it next week smile

You lucky peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeople (sorry, went to sleep on the keyboard)
