Update Day

EZ Animator Deluxe Update Day

EZ Animator Deluxe version 1.2.1 is done!

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

After some minor bug fixes to the last release candidate, I have decided to make the final release of version 1.2.1 of the EZ Animator Deluxe. To get yours, go to the update area below HUDDLES Headquarters on Animation Island. The green ball contains the updater, be sure to click on that. The blue box has a fresh copy of the HUD if you wish to grab one. And the pink prism has some extras you might want to grab if you are updating from a version before 1.2.0.

The directions for updating are here.

What’s new?

  • A button to sit on the ground anywhere
  • Flight assist
  • Improvements to the hugger
  • New commands like /99set name
  • A way to play macros by their name
  • New macro tags – [NO_DANCE], [TARGET_LAST] and [TARGET_FIRST]
  • Generally faster and more efficient dancing
  • Numerous small bug fixes

You can read the release notes on the web, however they may be incomplete. More documentation is in the works.
If you have previously upgraded to one of the Release Candidates, just come grab the final and run it again.


I think I’m done!

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

After three months of work, and four Release Candidates, I think I’m finally done with version 1.2.1 of the EZ Animator Deluxe. This has certainly been the most tested version I’ve ever released and it’s bound to be the most stable. More over this will be one of the easier update processes for current users. Just follow the directions that are on the updater itself and within a few minutes you will be all updated with better hugs, better group dancing, a flight assist, more tools and the most bug free version of the EZAD yet.


Release Candidate 4 : A New Hope

Monday, August 4th, 2008

It is time to try another release candidate. Various problems with the flight assist should be fixed now. Among them:

  • The math error shouldn’t be happening anymore.
  • It will remember it’s status when you turn it on and off, across different sessions.
  • The problem of drifting away in certain situations shouldn’t happen anymore.

Also, follow the link to find out about the latest options with the flight assist.

The Release Candidate 4 upgrader can be obtained by clicking the green ball on animation island. As before, the object will turn your old EZ Animator Deluxe (v1.0.4 and above) into a shiny new one without you having to move all the animations. I’ve also added instructions on the web on how to do the upgrade. You can read the release notes on the web, however they may be incomplete.

If you have previously upgraded to Release Candidate 1, 2 or 3, you can just use this updater and run the process again.
