Time for a fix. Play the updated version here. If you've tried to play it recently you'll notice it gets stuck on the grey lines before the loader. Turns out this was something to do with the built in flash player version detector I put in.
But never mind about that, because Chaos Faction 2 in on the way! And trust me, its awesomeness will far exceed that of CF1. So far the game-play is so much better, and with the help of the other artists being drafted in for the level backgrounds, animation and music, this should be one slick game.
But I'm afraid you'll have to wait a bit longer than initially planned. The original release date of September 2008 is looking increasingly unlikely, so it might be as long as Easter before we see it finished. Sorry about that. Anyway, I might bring out some demos and tasters some time. Remind me if I don't.
Also, has anyone noticed that flash player in Firefox now runs at the proper frame rate? How FREAKING AWESOME is that?? This basically means games will run much MUCH smoother now. Before, SWFs would always lose about 25% of the frame rate when played through a browser, but not any more! This was always such a major issue for developers, and it now appears to have been fixed. Test it yourself, open this link in Firefox and then in IE. The true frame rate is 30. Be amazed!
