I think they'll become public once the NDA lifts, which is 12 months from when it began I believe. Either that or <NDA>.

OK well;

How well do Darwinia 1.42 and 1.5.X run in wine on linux vs natively?

In theory, MW should perform similarly to whichever renderer IV are using for MW (which obviously I know but can't divulge).

The only problem that may be experienced is being unable to bind the sockets necessery for employing the interweb side of things - I imagine if defcon works in wine then Multiwinia might too. So... does Defcon work in Wine?

Hup two, linux users!

Well, I just attempted to wine defcon, and it crashed on attempting to view the lobby screen... didn't bother checking the backtrace for what went wrong.
I do know whether the Multiwinia netcode works in wine or not, but I'll stay on the safe side and not disclose that.

If I remember correctly from the Defcon procedure, the forums became public quickly after launch. Not directly after launch - I even remember sending a mail or PM to Chris saying the Tournament forums were still closed which weren't needed anymore - but soon enough. Basically the NDA is only about limiting the release of information while the game is in development, as soon as the game is released there is no reason people shouldn't be allowed to read it - it's not important which bugs were in the beta versions and screenshots can be made by players as soon as they have the game themselves.

Just to remind you that our beta NDAs last for a year from the date we were issued them. Ergo I'd want our posts to be archived until the last NDA expires, however the history of beta testing does not show this; The Darwinia beta forum was, as far as I can tell, deleted when it was finished. The Defcon forums were also given the same treatment. One does not expect anything unique this time around.

I know that, I was replying to Pox who said this same thing. ;)

Ha, I'm blind. Hell, now that I see it, I even remember moving it about. Plus, in theory, it's been well over a year since any of us signed NDAs for that stuff. I ponder if it should be made open...

But it already is open and has been for ages.

In all seriousness, get better!

Or not sleeping enough, as a friend of mine recently discovered. At first he thought he had some awkward acne, but no, that wasn't it. :P

I would assume that the NDA lasts for a year from signing or, until we are released from it by IV.

Note to self: more sleep. :shock:

How long did he sleep per day/week?

NeoThermic, hope you get well soon. :)
