Well, I can say with some certainty that I've never released something just right the first time, in my entire life.

However, bare with us. At the last minute, we noticed a few things that weren't working, and scrambled to make them do so. This kind of thing generally leads to more mess.

I don't want to spend much time preaching about it, however, tomorrow a patch will be released to fix the majority of the known problems. You'll notice that ENIGMA-R2 has an a at the end. This is because it took me five minutes to realize I'd done something wrong there and reupload.

Tomorrow I'll sort out some of the rest of the stuff. The worst of it includes some borkage with place_free, an explanation for which can be found here:
http://edc.enigma-dev.org/index.php?p=blog&id=33

draw_text will hopefully be reimplemented, global. and object. will work again, and the world will be happy.
All of these, along with LGM's importation of build mode edits, were broken without anyone realizing it. This kind of thing is forgivable with such a huge project, right? :P

The version you have now is still somewhat usable, but tomorrow we'll patch the holes.

(Disclaimer: I could be lying)

Note: Some of you may have found that you downloaded R2 from SourceForge. We apologize. I'm not telling you whose fault that is, so THERE.

Anyway, I haven't slept in two days. Which probably doesn't help the disorder, so if you'll forgive me, I'm going to try that.

That would be overkill.

Look you need an auto update system, so that users don't have to download patches normally, the program checks if updates are available and it asks if the user want to update. This means you can update as much as you want without worrying about getting everyone to manually update.

This is something that I think is best done in java, it can update both lgm and enigma all you would have to do is zip the files that have changed and when java unzis it would replace the files.

Since this is something I have already added to g-creator it is something I could add fairly quickly. Or you could wait for Ism to add it. I just think it would be a really good idea as you could keep us more up to date. So as soon as you have the collision event we have the collision event etc.

Auto updating was something we were talking about, and it should be easy to add a plug-in for lgm to do it.

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.

Will that nasty -6 error the compiler spits out be fixed? If so, then it's totally acceptable! (Found out it's due to me using the Alarm Event...)

That aside, it sounds good and this project is going along nicely. Thanks Josh!
