Awesome. Yay for Github. :slight_smile:

Nice! Should be a fun stream. :slight_smile:

Awesome! Can’t wait :smiley:

Go ahead and start posting any questions you have for our guests. We’ll gather them up and get the answers you need live!

If I submit a pull request and cancel my subscription, is the pull request still in the pipeline? Or does my pull request disappear along with my fork?

/\ I’d like to encourage everyone to not ‘cancel subscription’; I’ve been paying for it since first release and I think everyone could do the same. I think is more than fair to support Epic for such a great piece of software they provide us (even though they are a multi million company and we’re not) :stuck_out_tongue:
Value their work, they deserve it.

Oh and this one will be interesting stream. I’ll be there, won’t forget this time :slight_smile:

We don’t owe Epic anything. We can cancel for any reason at any time. I usually do pay monthly, but I don’t see a real point in paying when I’m not getting a full release that month. Additionally, many of us are indie and some of us have to make a $20 decision. It’s not much, but for some people it’s a real expense.

Question for Lee and Rick:

How do you decide who is admitted to the Student Developer program? Most software companies I’ve seen are able to simply verify a university issued email address within seconds (Microsoft’s DreamSpark program for instance). Do you actually look at the applications and decide on a case-by-case basis?

another hour and half, see you there, I’m there early lol

Chance, you said new Launcher “today” :stuck_out_tongue: Now this is yesterday and I still have the old launcher :wink:
But it’s absolutely okay, take your time and release it when it’s ready.

I was about to post something very similar (being humbly sarcastic), but you did it for me. No rush, it will be ready when its ready :slight_smile:

I love how the “murdered by the bathtub” joke went over Chance’s head, definitely amused me.

Great stream - nice looking games from the Jam, well done.

Only just managed to start watching last nights stream, and It has to be said that Lee Reilly’s T-Shirt is amazing!
