So... is lackeyCCG dead?
« on: November 12, 2016, 10:15:19 PM »
Last update was in 2014 or something.... just wondering if there is any movement on this project.. or if real life has taken Trevor away?

I know it wouldn't help the time problem, but Trev should run a kickstarter or a go-fundme or something to get a little help on this.

The short answer is I don't know what Trevor's plans are. I know it's been a long time since the program was last updated, however there have been numerous server side fixes since then. Plus whatever he's done for the apple port. I still log into the forums regularly and keep them as spam free as I can.

Yeah I figured as much.

I think Trev should run a kickstarter and try and raise some money and make LackeyCCG - 2nd Edition or something : )

I just discovered it and it's already dead 😣...
I'm still going to try to build a Pierce plug in though...

It is really an under-utilized and basically priceless playtesting tool for amateur game makers who don't have time to organize hundreds of playtest games irl. The problem is that most of the popular games have better, game-centric ways to play them online, and the less popular games don't have enough players to get off the ground. At least that's my assumption.

Life happens, and what would be excellent is for Trevor to open the code to an open source community. I think it would get awesome real fast, and those of us who use it regularly could spread the good word.

This software is just an update away (cough *custom dice* cough cough) from being the most versatile platform for a lot of board and card games

I would bet that the coding is already there. I have started scouring all of the plugins for nuggets that aren't posted anywhere. I have found probably 10% more functionality just by downloading a few extra plugins.
