I suspect they were down to one developer on RW and the rest were on server work for both HLO and RW. Then the RW dev quit and they hired a new one (they said they did). takes a bit to get up to speed so maybe we will see some movement in development.

Maybe but its been a very long time since we've even seen a bug fix patch.

You're going to have a hard time squashing bugs if you're still learning the code.

First thing I do with a new coder is put him on bug fix work. I've never heard of a new coder being put on new features.

And while the developer can be very good, it still takes a minimum of 1 to 2 months to learn everything, and even then they still won't know everything.

I'm starting to agree with others and feel that RW is going to be a dead product by years end if we don't see the Content Market within next few months.

There is only so many promising that LWD can make and they've used them all up I feel at this point.

Yeah, but are the small bug fixes a new developer can fix worth going through the release process for? Probably not util something major is fixed.

I suspect they are sitting on any bug releases because they are sitting on content that is ready to release. If they release a patch that breaks something they may need to apply that fix to all the ready content prior to a green light on launch. Therefore if they believe they really are just waiting on Paizo they will not push any updates until that is done out of fear of causing another delay.

When was the last time a dev has even posted anything? From what I've seen they've completely ignored this forum. Giving no information at all is very worrisome.

Communications in general from LWD are in decline. Look at the newsletter frequency - up to mid 2017 they sent out a monthly newsletter. Middle of last year it looks to be 1 every other month and this year only a single newsletter in February.

The last facebook post on the official realm works page is in december and it addresses the kickstarter crowd, that's 5 months without a facebook update. I know facebook is dying, but wow.

The LWD twitter account has very little mention of any other of the software titles except of course HLO.

So, I'm thinking the directive from top down is to not put any emphasis or draw attention to the product right now. Not sure what that means for the product itself, but watching the monthly spike in user speculation on these forums has been amusing.

Sadly, I agree. Personally Ive soured on LWD and not just RW. I wont be spending money with LWD unless things change a lot. However, Im having trouble not checking back here every month though. I put so much time and love into RW I keep hoping for a change.
