Sanctum of the Archmage Remake

Updates for Sanctum of the Archmage: The Sight and The Quest, v4.2, are complete! I'm now beginning what I hope will be the final playtest before packaging the adventure modules for release. :)

I will prepare the traditional blanket-cocoon.

The first playtest of "The Sight" is done. I found a few minor fixes that needed to be made, particularly to some new last-minute features I added. I will be starting the first final playtest of "The Quest" this weekend.

P.S. For those interested, my new Sanctum of the Archmage novel, Dawn of Chaos, is available on Amazon at a discount over the next several days.

I finished my first playtest for "The Quest" last night. One of those "last minute" scripting features that I added ended up being badly borked and had to be re-written, which took a good part of the day. I still found a handful of bugs that need fixing, which I'll need to plan time for. It'll take another few weeks to finish up the fixes and do a full re-play test, but it's getting closer. :)

From The Sanctum: Sanctum Remake Coming Soon

"I’ve now finished a full playthrough of the soon-to-be-released remake of the Neverwinter Nights module series, Sanctum of the ArchmageThe Sight and The Quest. I found a handful of bugs and issues that I still need to resolve, which I’ll need to plan time for over the next few weeks. After one more playthrough to ensure they’re worked out, I should be able to release the remake sometime this summer."

The last round of fixes for the Sanctum remake is now it. I'm starting what I hope, this time, will be the final and successful playtest.

Fingers crossed!

I'm not planning on removing any content, so yes. I'm going to try to package it a bit more conveniently, but it'll still be a large download.

The Sanctum 1 playtest is basically done. I found a few minor things that were easily fixed in-place and won't need a re-test. Interestingly, most of them were typos that had apparently been in previous versions of the module. I guess that taking up novel writing has improved my ability to spot them. :)

The Sanctum 2 test is underway, and so far looks good. I found a few minor scripting issues near the beginining. So far, they've also been things that I could fix in-place. I'm hoping to finish the main path test today.

Life has been hectic with non-modding stuff, but I was able to finish the baseline Sanctum 2 test this week. Most of what I found were minor typos. I should be able to fix these without needing to do a full campaign re-test.

I will need to do several more shorter tests, because the transition from Chapters 1 to 2 involves several "plot state" possibilities in which unfinished quests from The Sight can carry over to The Quest. Each of those threads needs to be tested to make sure the continuity is working. I'll be doing that next.

I also just received a review on "The Sight" that mentioned several issues that I'll need to look over -- and possibly, make further changes to address. That'll have to be added to my list. I'm hoping that any needed fixes will be easy to do and test.

So it's probably still going to require another couple of weeks at least for me to address all of that, re-do the documentation, and package the new campaign for upload. It's getting close, though, so stay tuned. :)

Well I'm excited, I played the first one err version ?? but it was before you released the second, I think I only replayed it once because I thought you where going to remake them for NWN2 which I didn't have until recently and WoT was still to much in my mind
