TMNew Sim - Project 2020 First Insider Build














Hello Friends! 

We are now into the 'first day of the new month' of February! 2020 is already moving quite fast.

Let's start off the 'first day' of the new month with some 'breaking news'!

:: #TMNewSim : #Project2020 ::

On Reighard's Twitter account, we got our first glimpse of the upcoming #HTML5 simulation for Themagical.nl 

As you can see below from the tweet, we can see the first 'inside build number' of the simulation in progress.



Here's a quote from the webmaster/founder of Themagical "Martijn Leseman" of his current development of " #Project2020 " :

"Since the reusable coding of #HTML5 from the previous simulations, I was able to add a lot of the code already to the project.  I started #TMNewSim #Project2020 as a try out, did not expect to be build that quick! ~ Martijn Leseman" 



:: Thoughts? ::

What do you think could it be of our next upcoming #TMNewSim #Project2020 #HTML5 simulation at Themagical.nl??

Until Then,

Reighard

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 'New Year'!  Thank you for all your support in playing our simulations over these years! 

It's amazing that 20 years has gone by since coming online on December 1, 2000! We are very excited on what the coming future holds as we move forward from Adobe Flash to HTML5 simulations.

Thank you again!  Happy New Year 2020!!

:: Dorney Park's "Dominator" simulation is 'Now Available'! ::

Releasing today on January 1, 2020 , Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown Pennsylvania USA "Dominator" space blasting tower simulation is "Now Available" for your enjoyment!

We want to thank all our beta testers who helped us test this newest #HTML5 simulation. They helped us find bug issues/glitches and of course made some suggestions to help this simulation better.

Head over to Themagical.nl and click on "Dominator" at the top of the website to play!

 :: #TMNewSim 'Project 2020' and #Themagical20 ::

Starting on January 1, 2020 , we announced a new simulation will be coming soon with the tagline: "Project 2020".   At this time, we are currently looking over our options on what will be a great simulation from your suggestions that we've got over the years.  

We will be considering all suggestions and ideas for possible future simulations for Themagical.  We are also looking for a better cms and arcade feature option as we are moving forward away from Adobe Flash and using HTML5 for all future simulation development.

Stay tuned for more information by following our social media outlets and our hashtag : #TMNewSim 



::  #Themagical20 ::

Themagical will be celebrating 20 years online this coming December 1, 2020!  Even though it's far away right now, we will be sharing some fun new information about this special day.

v.20191121-40

DorneyOnline Newest Simulation: Dominator


© NewsPlusNotes   |  © Cedar Fair L.P.



Hello Friends!

I know it's been a long time since my last posting back in October.  There were things that happened to me personally and as well issues with hard-drives crashed.  More about that in later in the post.

Hard - drive crashes: 3 week delay !

Martijn had one of his hard-drive crash on him....yes you guess correctly...the main hard-drive where this simulation was stored on!

Luckily, he was able to restore the drive but had to wait for 3 weeks in order to have it fixed!  That was great news for sure!  He resumed development where he left off before the hard-drive crashed on him which was another great news to hear.

Usually hard-drive crashes are pretty much useless and almost all data is gone!  But gracefully, this hard-drive crash didn't loose any data and was able to be fixed!  Talk about a close call on this particular situation! PHEW! (*wiping off sweat from my forehead.)

Introducing "Dorneyonline.com Newest HTML5 Simulation: Dorney Park's 'Dominator' !" 

News broke out from Martijn (webmaster/simulator creator of Themagical.nl) as the newest simulation for Dorneyonline.com after the successful simulation of "Steel Force®". 

We got the 'green-light' from Josh to announce this newest simulation since himself as well had some life changing experience in his family house hold too!  Josh is very pleased of the progress of this newest simulation and happy to share this with his community once we get an official launch date for this simulation.

This simulation has been developed with the HTML5 coding since the support of Adobe Flash Player will be no longer supported by 2020 (most browsers will stop using them by late December of 2020).  You'll be able to access this simulation on your smartphone/tablet devices as long the web browser can render HTML5 graphics.

The image below shows the progress development of the simulation.  Please note that this simulation graphic design may not reflect the final version once it's launch over at DorneyOnline.com .

Beta Testers Testing Simulation:  Progress !

Our beta testers has been doing lots of testing behind-the-scenes! They have been reporting their feedback and bug reports from this simulation.  

They been enjoying the experience so far and happy that soon the general public will experience this simulation 'real soon' !

Closing Thoughts !

I apologies for the poor posting since October.  Be sure to look out for another new update about this simulation as progress has been moving very quickly!  

Thank you for your support and interest of reading this blog!

Until Then,


Reighard

Back in March of this year, I've made a tweet about our newest upcoming #HTML5 simulation that was in 'Blue Sky' phase.  Well, I'm happy to share with you some additional details with you.

Martijn and myself (Reighard) , made a decision on the newest simulation creation.  We decided that we will creating a new simulation for our partner site 'DorneyOnline.com' .

Josh Stauffer (webmaster at DorneyOnline.com / Simulation Creator) gave us the 'green-light' to proceed with our idea for his site.


Any Thoughts what it could be??

Our beta testers are getting their hands on this newest upcoming simulation today!  They will be testing this simulation and catching those pesky bugs/glitches!

We appreciate their help on getting this simulation ready for the general public and of course their suggestions to make this simulation a better experience.
