    Just wondering what's up with the 5.8.0 mods that are supposed to be available today. I checked the Modb site and it doesn't have them up yet. Have I missed something??

    Re: Waiting for the 5.8.0 Mod

    We are waiting for the host, MOdDB, to authorize it. We are too cheap to host it, it costs too much bandwidth.

    Re: Waiting for the 5.8.0 Mod

    Just checked MODDB. It says the newest release, 5.7.2 BETA was released 17 hours ago for April 25th. Something is broke over there. Or they're all sitting around getting drunk and high and totally neglecting their site and laughing at us!

    I wonder when the newest revision of War Of The Golden Skull is coming out. :poke:

    It wont be coming out for a while. However, we have decided on the basics of an altered storyline to make it fit better with the rest of the C08 mods and new Verb.

    According to the ModDB site there have been 22 downloads today. Wonder if there is a secret link....

    wHOA!

    I had no idea it was this close! I thought it was still weeks away!

    This is epic win!... well there goes my plan to study this weekend.

    So, is my guess that NC stands for new content correct? and the difference between:
    Circle of Eight Modpack 5.8.0 BETA
    Circle of Eight Modpack 5.8.0 NC BETA
    is that one is just bug fixes and one has new content?

    Re: Waiting for the 5.8.0 Mod

    I feel a fever coming on. I have a headache, I'm nauseous, I'm sweating and shaking while being cold, sore throat from coughing, diarrhea, sinuses are all stuffed up, the thought of food repulses me...yup, definitely caught the flu. I don't think I want to chance going into work until wednesday or thursday because I don't want anyone else to catch what I got. What a coincidence that I catch the flu the day the new modpack is released. I must lead a blessed life. I guess I'll have nothing better to do that heavily medicate myself and try out 5.8 NC.

    I wish I could go to work and process more health insurance claims but sacrifices must be made for the betterment of the company.

    Yeah, I already took off Monday and Tuesday. I told my boss 3 weeks ago that I wanted these days off.

    I have been making notes with my experiences of WB. Can I post them somewhere so the modders can see how I enjoyed the content without spoiling?

    Monday is a public holiday here in Oz. What can I say, we take Co8 seriously.

    This doesnt need to be the thread. Make an official one and I will post my bugs/notes (not spoilers) there.

    I agree. Let the two be separate from each other.

    On a personal level a question I have is this:
    Should I scrap my existing game and switch over to 5.8.0, I'm to the point where I am about to take on Lareth, or should I continue with my 5.7.2 game? OR wil Front End allow me to play two game sets concurrent to each other and moved everything in and out of the ToEE directory. This part of the Front End confuses me to no end.

    I have trouble figuring out the NC / NC Beta thing and have enough headaches. Make me almost wish the upgrade path could be X.0.0 (Beta) to X.0.1 (full game) to X.02.1a (bug fixes), etc. And then only come out with a X once a year. While fixing the bug it will logically lead to new content. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians sort of thing.
