Our work continues

Hi there!
It’s been a while, since we wrote anything here. Yeah, we know it’s bad, but last 3 months were very busy for everyone of us, leaving very little spare time. And we’re trying to use this time to improve the game engine instead of creating something we can show right now.
We decided to concentrate all our efforts in developing a simple, but reliable toolset, which will help us in the development of OGS Mahjong 2 and Shuan.
If you follow Michael’s YouTube channel, you’ve already seen some simple videos of our material and action systems.
I want to tell a bit more about them. Continue reading

We wish you a happy new year!

Year 2013 is coming to an end (and for some it has already ended). We sincerely wish you all the best in 2014.
We know that we’re quite rarely posting something on the site, and we’re trying to improve the situation, but neither of us has great amount of spare time, and we want to use that time to work on Shuan and OGS Mahjong 2.
Nevertheless, we’ll try to post news more often in 2014. In the meantime, our programmer Michael Kapelko wrote a short article for you about the results of 2013.

New issue tracker and wiki

Since the beginning of our work on OGS Mahjong, we were using Google Code Issue Tracker as our main tasktracker and Wiki-engine. We can say, that it is a well-done and usable service, but the further development of our project demands for significant changes, so we have decided to switch to another tasktracker.
After carefully examine the alternatives, we’ve chosen the MantisBT. Also, with the new tracker, we’ve got a full-functional Wiki, which we’re going to fill with usefull and interesting information.

Any problems with linux-version?

I have to ask any of you, who can’t start the linux version of the game (no matter deluxe or free), to send us a letter to with the following info:
  1. What Linux distribution are you using?
  2. Is it a 32bit or a 64bit distribution?
  3. Are you using the standalone version or starting the game with Desura client?
  4. Attach the ~/.OGStudio/Mahjong/log.html file to the letter.
  5. Attach the ~/.OGStudio/Mahjong/game.cfg file to the letter (if it exists).
We’re going to release the 1.0.2 version soon, and we want to solve the problems you encountered.

Can you tell us about youself?

Hello everybody!
Since the release of OGS Mahjong 1.0, almost 5 months ago, the game was downloaded more than 6,000 times by users from around the world, and every day the number of downloads increases by 20-30.
Unfortunately, we know very little about our users. Do you like our game? Are still you playing it? How do you want us to improve it? Our goal is to please you with the further development of the OGS Mahjong as well as the new interesting projects. So, we’re offering you to help us to fix this lack of knowledge by taking a small survey. It’s anonymous, we will not know about you more than you want to tell us. After taking the survey you will get a code. Save it. When we will complete our research, you will be able to use it to receive a gift from us (we will post the details separately).
Take the survey
