Or the use of a different maths library? ;)

Beta2 is now ready for download for PC - look in the Beta Test Discussion forum.

Ambrosia will be releasing beta2 for Mac later today.

Please report all problems in the Beta Test Discussion forum.

Two thumbs up; I just tested the compatibility of the Linux and Windows 1.4 beta2, no syncing errors during a whole 1 vs 1 game. The Linux machine uses a P4 and the Windows machine an Athlon XP. I'd also have a mac, but I suppose I'm a bit late to register for beta testing with that, right?

More likely they're changing the network protocol to stop a very obvious way of cheating.

There are several people that have been added since beta testing began. So, there may still be some chance. However, ASW have basically said that they are no longer accepting new beta testers. I suppose that it can't hurt to ask, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Anyway, ASW are shooting for a March release, which means that beta testing is almost done. ;)

Is ASW March anything like Introversion March (i.e. December)? ;)
Here is my signature. Make of it what you will.

As far as I know, ASW have never before given a release date. Their release dates are always "It'll be done when it is done."
