HexWar.Net Development Plan, April 2016
West Wall, North Africa & Twilights Last Gleaming
As part of the upgrade of the service to support the latest operating systems some of the oldest games on HexWar had to be disabled. The main issue was that we were unable to digitally sign these games. The old games were also not available to Apple Mac users.
The core work on updating these games is almost complete and the first game to be updated, 'Bastogne', should be up for live play testing in a few days.
Road to Vicksburg
Progress is good on this game and live play testing should follow shortly after the 'Bastogne' update is complete.
New Challenge System
We are working on a lobby based challenge system where players should be able to post a game challenge for any other player to be able to accept. This should make issuing challenges a lot easier.
Over the next few weeks this will be disabled. Changes in how we store and protect data will mean that game turns will be automatically downloaded by the system as you play.
