SF3Patch Version 11 Released!

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I’m happy to announce the release of SF3Patch version 11! No more updating files!
Patches will be released at undetermined intervals, but I’m thinking every 6 months or so.

The new patch, which is currently available from the button to the right and the FTP, contains all of the custom title and loading screens. You’ll also find the instructions updated both in the included Read Me.doc as well as on the Patch Instructions page. I wanted to get more done for this occasion, but with so many people having issues with updating files lately, it felt like the right time.

Version 11 represents over 4 years of work (since I joined the project). To illustrate how far we have come, version 10 contained the premium disc and the first chapter of Sc2. Currently, all but the last chapter of the trilogy is in place (albeit without proper playtesting). I probably couldn’t even list everything that has been done. That’s the good news.

The bad news is this is not a victory dance. There is still much more work to do. The project is currently without a dedicated translator which will soon become an issue. The last 30 files of Sc2 and all of Sc3 is yet to be reviewed for accuracy. There is still much more to do on my end with inserting what has been reviewed and reducing file sizes to workable levels as well as the daunting task of a thorough playtest of the truly complete sections. There’s always version 12, right?

Thanks to everyone for all their contributions to get us to this point!
