Well Schools out and I've settled into my job enough that I'm not exhausted when I get home, so I'm officially restarting work on ARC tonight.


Near the end of the month or the beginning of next I'm hoping to have a limited form of the editor finished and usable and I'm looking for a select few people to participate in a private alpha to see how it's shaping up.

I'll only take a max of 5 people so act fast if you want it. PM me with a quick paragraph on why you think you would make a good tester and I'll respond if your chosen.



In other news, as the ARC Engine has been renamed to "Reactor" in light of F0's leaving the team we are also searching for a new editor name. ARCed just doesn't cut it anymore.

Possible names

  • Spark
  • Fabricator
  • Welder


If you can think of a good one pop it in a post below!

I'd volunteer but at the moment I can't play enough with it and give good feedback in a reasonable time.  People with more time should take up the reigns on that.

Also I really like the name ARC Welder!

Done and done, I've been looking for an excuse to re-setup the project in VS (I'm not sure what happened but it wasn't done properly the first time)
I also just did a LOT of work changing up how stuff get imported at start-up (part of an effort to make it easier to recompile the cythoned version with out having to recompile every file regardless if it had changed or not) it also lets me fine tune the start-up process and restructure on the fly.

funny enough ARC Welder is "Welded" together when it starts up rather then being built so I feel the name is well founded

Share we change any board names?

I'm a little behind the band-wagon, as seems to be the case recently, but I'd love to help with the ARC reboot, Ryex, despite my mediocre talents. I'm probably mediocre support at best, but just let me know what you need and I'll do my best to make sure it gets done. I can at least help with testing or making a showcase game if that's what you need. :)
