    A few notes on the update release ...

    1. In many ways, the Ran no Jidai community have become official mod members serving as testers for the project. Your feedback and support will directly influence the future of the modifcation. For example, the progress bar and the four turns per year script, were two objectives that remained incomplete due to the lack of technical experience. The progress bar, a katana, was produced but the "team" lacked the technical chops to mod pack the progress bar so it functioned solely within the mod folder. As for the four turns per year script, it functioned without error as a gameplay element within the modificiation, but rendered an unresolved error message upon exiting the game. So the community directly controls the destiny of the project, if members with the required talents emerge to resolve these issues and others, then a patch can be produced to enhance gameplay.

    The only known issue resulting in a "crash to desktop", is one involving a faction's elimination. The remedy, for which, maybe as simple as resolving the "lose" condition video not displaying upon a faction's elimination. However, due to the "teams" lack of technical experience, the problem remains unresolved.

    2. A few words concerning Ran no Jidai members decision to release an unfinished campaign. While the internal debate and subsequent vote were almost unanimous, one clear reason eventually emerged, one of self-preservation. Unless more members could be procured from the ranks of the community to resolve technical issues and complete other objectives, the project would eventually falter. In releasing the unfinished Ran no Jidai campaign, that the release itself would prove to be instrumental in establishing the projects continued longevity. The community now has a clear perception of what's been accomplished thus far, and what elements require further attention, the projects fate rest with the community.

    3. A few words concerning the state of Ran no Jidai, as of the update release, I'll be stepping down as interim mod-leader due to "real life" issues. Unless an individual from the ranks of the community emerges with the prerequisite talents required to lead the remaining members, the future of the project remains questionable.
