Marine 3.0 beta yet?

Is there a beta of the new Marine aquarium 3.0 yet? I thought there might be something coming out by now.

I know people get annoyed with the ETA question but it has been 5 years! LOL

Hopefully there will be something soon to keep us all going.

fingers crossed

Nope, not yet. Jim has said MA3 will be out before the end of the year though.
Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Järvafält" as the latest addition – Go have a look and tell me what you think.

Maybe Jim to treat us all to some screenshots or a beta version to play with? You know the guys/girls on the forum will buy it anyway but it would be great to have something to play with.

I've seen some mockups and renderings of what Jim is doing. It looks fantastic as usual, but no pre-release full shots will be given out. The first the general public will see it will be when its released. There is no point in giving hackers and thieves a head start.

I'm still hoping to have a Beta out by the end of this year, but the sale of my house and the resulting move have really slowed things down.

Falz,
Maybe not the hackers, but the guys using the background in their own screensavers which seem to happen every now and then...

Hmmmm..so who gets first crack at beta? Is it too early to ask what new fishes are going to be in version 3.0?

From what I understand from Jim, I think the first plan is to finish 3.0 with the current fish. I am not sure if he has decided to redo them before release or redo them after release. I think he was leaning towards releasing first and redoing as he went afterwards, but I'm not sure if he has made a final determination yet.

Yes, that's still the plan - to release the first Beta with the existing fish and the new background, then start with the updates.

So we can have a background before the year is up and then have the whole year of 2008 to have regular updates..right
