    Would you guys consider on releasing a demo with garden again? This would be good for people to offer feedback and opnions before its final. ;)

    Why have a playable demo, when you can get the full thing.

    They really can't release a standalone, since it is on the ut2k4 engine.

    Actually, that is a good idea. Release a one-map demo... just like Unreal 2's XMP-Garden demo (just remember to stick "DEMO" tag everywhere so no one thinks it's full). :)

    This will also give those 56kers a chance to get a feel of the game when its in a small file size. They may not want to download a 300mb file not knowing what it will be like. If they see that its awesome, then they will download the full version, regardless if it takes them all week :D

    I was hoping that the ut2004:Editor's choice edition would come with utxmp :D

    that would have been slick.

    it would be great to have a demo as long as it didnt slow up progress on full release...u2 xmp was very addictive and great fun

    it should not, because the full release will have all of what is in the demo, but the demo does not need to be extremely stable ;)

    Demo requires more work... work that should go into the full release.

    It wouldnt be a demo really anyway, more like a alpha or beta.

    All the mod teams need to release a beta or whatever a good while before the deadline so that changes and fixes can be made and the full thing can be made on time, some mod teams *cough* FO *cough* need to learn this more than others. Usually it wouldnt matter but the msuc contestants have a deadline they need to be ready by, so its a better idea to be as ready and complete as possible so that you dont have to cut it close then make up excuses as to why lol.....
