October 22, 2004: Hacking AwayThree of us are putting in a late Friday right now, working with the UltraCorps server. It runs, but not completely. In particular, we can't yet set up new accounts, and we can't get it to tick. Best guess right now is that it has to do with a whole lot of hard-coded net addresses which we'll have to find and correct, one at a time.
October 15, 2004: SJ Games Purchases UltraCorps
Steve Jackson Games has bought all rights to UltraCorps and will be relaunching the game soon, first as an open beta and then as a full-featured pay-to-play project. Details of the schedule will be announced as we figure them out!
Steve Jackson's comment was: "I bought this game because I really liked it. It's challenging and fun. It was ahead of its time and ahead of its market, but we're going to give it a good home, and I think a lot of our fans will like UltraCorps as much as I did."
