05-30-2008 DigiBand v1.0.2 released, new online shop.
DigiBand Now is version 1.0.2. we have rewritten the text library and it's running smoother game time and loads faster There has been a slow down during song selection, but we will do our best to work this out. This is our first step towards DigiBand EX
We now have a new online shop. We receive a reasonable mark up for products purchased, please purchase something of your interest to help support our efforts.
05-26-2008 DigiBand EX project started.
Our first step into the DigiBand EX project has begun. We are rewritting the text rendering library to use Freetype directly without SDL TTF. All is going well, and as soon as we bring the memory foot print down, it'll be ready for everyday use. We currently have SHIFT-JIS text supported and working, this will remove the need of .dfc files.
07-20-2007 v1.0 Released
We finally made it! This concludes the completion of DigiBand in code. Now we will be moving on to our next goal, Making a commercial product. Anyone intersted in helping us reach that goal, inform me ASAP. We now have a functioning linux version. DigiBand no longer uses SDL-mixer, compiles with SDL 1.2.11, uses OpenAl and runs from what is of appearance, rock solid Any bugs or crashes please let us know. The V3 theme will stay in as default until we can get more themes created. And thank you to all of you who have helped us so far.
06-03-2007 v0.9.1 Release Candidate 2
cleaned alot of possible crash points. Changed alot of the internal code, and started to clean up. Preperations for RC3 will include a change in the sound engine. The sound engine is part of velex's "LibOswegoAL" which will be an open AL mixer implimentation that will be far more stable than using SDL_Mixer and MCI. Digiband is now fully compatible for use with SDL 1.2.11. The release version has 1.2.11 dll's and has been compiled with 1.2.11.
04-29-2007 v0.9.0 Release Candidate 1
Fixed a few issues with smoothness, it is now graphically smoother than ever before. I also added alot of new features to the theme engine. This is what made the digiband-V3 theme possible. Check it out, it works great.
04-14-2007 v0.8.7 beta 2
Not really much about this version, some input issues fixed, graphics engine using a little less memory, and more stability in the code. It would be the RC1 except I have 1 thing I want to do before that. And that's smooth the notes out a little more. It plays somewhat choppy when there is no video, and even more choppy when there is no vSync.
On a personal note, I will be slowing down the production of digiband even more. I need to focus on getting a better job more than this project. I've brought it this far, but it seems I've reach the peek of what I can do for the project by myself.
10-16-2006 v0.8.6 beta
WTF-BBQ! This version focus's on speed and stability. Plus an increased compatibility and syncing with DTX Mania. Over all the appeal of this version of DigiBand exceeds all other versions. New features even such as window scaling, anisotropic filtering, TV Scaling and Widescreen Enabled themes. This version is the flag ship for the RC1 release. If this one Shows no bugs it will become with a few things cleaned up the RC1, and soon a Linux port will be complete. So please be patient as we are working to achieve a more complete simulator and exceed our competitors simulators.
8-27-2006 v0.8.5 beta
The next big release in DigiBand. This one has a lot of new features and even more stable.
This release focused on getting arcade features in the game and stabalizing audio/video decoding.
(BTW all memory leaks since 4 versions ago appear to have been fixed)
8-21-2006 v0.8.4 beta
Man... time's flying by, well it's now time for our next release! This one has a few fixes that needed to happening way so many versions ago. I hope you all enjoy. BTW the biggest thing was a fix to battle notes, 'jittering'. It shouldn't do that anymore.
8-10-2006 v0.8.3 beta released (now with FFMPEG!)
DigiBand's video engine is now powered by ffmpeg via avcodec. This makes the executable huge like X-box, but now you don't have to worry about videos not playing. No matter how F$*#@! your codecs are, it will now render it all. It's still a new change, so it may still be considered alpha. Please e-mail/post about any problems you may experience with digiband.
8-10-2006 v0.8.2 beta released
EVEN MORE UPDATES!!! so many it's rediculus. What you'll be seeing is what's going into the prerelease of DigiBand. This is also what's going to be available in the arcade. Once I have the release situated, we'll be releasing the arcade version. We have the okay from Putters Family Fun Center to place the machine there. We also have the support from 5/3 bank to fund the project. Once this happens the commercial site for digiband will be open, and we will be looking for talent. This is where we need you folks. If you or you know someone who is a musician and trying to make a name for themself, send them to us. We are looking for talent to use for our game. I'll have a form up eventually for a contract. This contract will explain how much you will be paid and how for creating music for Digiband.

Hope you BeforU fanatics love this one.
I have now posted a new theme in the downloads featured around BeforU!
This is only the first step I'm going to take, this should redo most of the UI, next for V1.1 of the theme, I will work on altering the MP3's. For now enjoy a refreshingly different look than the usual boring default.
If anyone has suggestions for the next theme they'd like to see, e-mail me!

If you have comments or bugs to report.
Don't worry folks this pre alpha version is in fact very stable, just there may be a lot of minor glitches in the code that I'd like people to look out for. I have not tested this on More than 3 machines now, and would like community input.
