Laut Camelot Herald Friday Grabbag:
Q: I saw a press release saying Catacombs had gone gold. Do you think the expansion is ready to release?
A: Heck, no.
?Gold? is an industry term meaning that the CD we will be shipping next month is finished. The CD has been sent to the publisher to be copied and put into boxes. We?ve loaded it up with art files, zone maps, major parts of the game engine, and all the other bits that are a major pain in the tail to download.
And with other genres in gaming, gold does mean done. But this is a massively multiplayer RPG ? much of the ?game? is actually located on our servers, and we will be working on that for the rest of this month. So even though we?ve ?gone gold,? we?re still weeks away from launch.
^^ d.h. die sind noch weit davon entfernt
