Posted by Data in Cortex Command - March 13th, 2013

While designing Graphical User Interfaces is often not so fun, it is a necessary chore. We are in the midst of hooking this one up:


Speaking of tools; we are about to release a couple of powerful ones that will be nice for you CC sprite jockeys out there.. will be very timely for the Workshop update.

    YAaaargh! A Data Realms post, and containing the word “Timely”!
    Nice to hear from you. Good luck, and good work – this menu editor seems like easy and powerful stuff!

  2. zalo - # March 13th, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Alright! What’s the size limit for mods? (Please say over 10 megabytes)

  3. Java - # March 14th, 2013 at 12:20 am

    “over 10 megabytes”? The possibilities…
    *goes into a coma*

    Glad to see that work is still being done on Cortex Command. It truly is an amazing game, and Steam Workshop will only make it better.

    Oh wow, I can’t wait for this, considering I just got into making mods for the game, such a fun simple thing to do for this amazing game. Have to say I can’t wait for the workshop update!

    Hi Data, can we get ctrl+o timescaling back please? It’s killing me here! Thanks!

    *sniff* 🙁

  14. Vince - # June 1st, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    1. please update again soon. (if you can)
    2. this is off topic to this post, but it is the most recent CC update, so I will put it here: I love that you get one faction at a time in skirmishes, but could you integrate a way to choose what faction we will fight against? it kinda sucks to set up an awesome defense against browncoats or silver men and end up with dummies attacking. or wanting to fight coalition, and wasting two or more attempts wasting time to make a base each time and ending up with silver men or ronin.
    just saying, it would be a nice option to be able to choose.

    You know what would be cool? Somehow filtering the balanced mods from the insane ones….

  16. Ongar - # June 10th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    If the mods are good enough, you might want to incorporate them into the game permanently. Good mods = better game, better game = happier players + more sales. Everybody wins.

  17. Sandman - # June 13th, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Nice !

    One or two years more and we can expect another mockup ! We all are really happy that we gave you our money and you FINISHED your game. Also we all will follow your next game developement and give it deserving attention, because WE REMEMBER that you are NOT a garbage quitter dev who abandones his project because he already made his money and he lacks the skill to even make it into playable state.

    Your fanclub president

  18. driecg36 - # June 15th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    I understand the dev team is small and stuff, but you could at least give us weekly updates so we know what’s happening. If i didn’t know any better, i would think that you had abandoned the project. Even then, i am still losing hope, which is sad cause i absolutely love this game.

  19. Manfried - # June 21st, 2013 at 12:30 am

    So does internet access at the safehouse cut out for months at a time?

  20. Halo117 - # June 21st, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Can’at wait for it!

  21. macfire19 - # June 24th, 2013 at 2:53 am

    It would be nice if you guys would give us weekly, if not biweekly, updates. Or just a single update to let everyone know that you are, indeed, still working and are alive. :3

  22. BadBoy - # July 2nd, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    fuck yeah 😀
    Give us a sign!

    Or some news ♥

  23. Sallen - # July 8th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    This is how Data rolls. It’s been like this forever so don’t worry. It’s absurd to think this game could be abandoned after all this time. News will come eventually.

    Keep up the good work!

  24. asher - # July 8th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    it seems as if there deader than a zombie hit with an uber cannon

    Heh maybe the KGB or CIA got to Data, hell they might force some updates out of them as a form of torture who knows!

  26. Yup, nothing new here... - # July 30th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Oh my GOD. I’ve been lenient with this game, but to spit RIGHT into your fan bases faces like this… Releasing a game so ridiculously under stocked in content and then acting like IT NEVER HAPPENED. this comment will get deleted because mods will say its flaming, Like we’re not allowed to complain… ALL WE WANT, ALL YOU NEED… for fans to come back and keep looking at this game and not just say “well, another 4 months without an update, maybe by some chance i might come back when something ELSE reminds me of a great game that could’ve been” ALL YOU NEED TO DO, IS ONE, SIMPLE, EASY THING, YOU COULD HAVE a 12 HOUR A WEEK, 7 DAY JOB AND DO THIS. DO NOT DELETE THIS. MAYBE SOMEBODY NEEDS TO SEE IT. YOU CAN MAKE AN UPDATE “Things are going well, we’re still working hard on the game, more updates will come like this, just to update you about how we’re still going hard at it” THATS ALL, THIS IS NOT A FLAME, THIS ISN’T AN INSULT OR AN ATTACK… ITS A FRIENDLY(maybe not so worded friendly) PIECE OF ADVICE

  27. Mathew - # July 31st, 2013 at 3:13 am

    Theres a bug with multiplayer ( You cant shoot each other it goes right past them as if they were friendly

  28. JAVA - # August 4th, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    I wrote the number 3 comment way back when. I really like your game Cortex Command. I still play it, something about the way the physics works enchants me. You probably think this project was a flop and that you should do something else with your time, but I think that you have a real talent for making games fun. I will most certainly buy your Cortex Command 2 if you decide to make it.

  29. Powapunches - # August 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    Are we there yet?

  30. xash00 - # August 30th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Well, I enjoyed your game very much, but with this no dev log thing, well it (for me) it feels like this game will be left in dust. Data if you are reading this, please tell me I’m wrong.

  31. LdShade - # August 31st, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Anyway to change key bindings? When I press F2 it just turns up brightness.

  32. driecg36 - # September 1st, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    I really love this game, but are you guys even trying anymore? I know Data is a small team, but at least keep us up to date, unless you’ve abandoned the game (which would be a tragedy), and even then, you should inform us of that as well rather than making us sustain false hope…

  33. opensource - # September 2nd, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Release the code!

  34. MIKECHECK - # September 4th, 2013 at 11:34 am

    Yeah, this game is dead.

  35. BadBoy - # September 5th, 2013 at 6:32 am

    Fuck it´s sooo damn Dead 🙁
    BUT WHY :[
    It´s such a fucking nice Game…

    i love the old engine in Build 14 :'(

    realy sad data…
