Tag: Dynamic Comic Viewer
Sorry for the long delay between posts and thank you everyone for your comments and emails. There have been no updates because I have informally locked off commissions and have put my biggest push to date on Dark Rift. I have been working 12 hour days (sometimes more) to complete this project. So, in the way of info dump, here is a bullet point list of what to expect:
The feedback we’ve received regarding the Dynamic Comic Viewer has been wonderful and it appears that users have really embraced this new format and are clamoring for more. Our initial iteration of the software was as feature rich as we could muster without going completely overboard, as we wanted to first gauge your reactions and hear your feedback. Now that we are satisfied that what we’ve produced is something you enjoy and want more of, we intend to continue adding to the software to help it reach its maximum potential.
That’s right, everyone… The store is officially live and chock full of goodies! Well, not quite ‘full’. In fact, it’s rather barren. But it’s running, it’s been tested and found to be working in all browsers, and Clara Ravens Episode 3 Epilogue is there waiting for you to get your hands on, as well as the Dynamic Comic Viewer! So I’ll save you a lengthy ranting blog post as I’m sure you’re eager to get to the first official DCV-enabled comic, so click on the banner above or click the store link and go get yourself some Clara!
Big thanks to the two guys who’ve been working tirelessly over the last couple weeks helping me get this up and running, despite working late nights to 3 a.m. at some points. I literally couldn’t have done this without you guys, and you deserve the recognition even though I know you’d rather stay anonymous. Thanks a ton!
Oh lastly, if/when you buy the comic and have had a chance to read it, please drop by the store again and leave a review of the product for other potential buyers. But please, keep it spoiler-free!
We’ve identified a problem with the credit card plugin in Google Chrome that causes an essential script not to run during checkout, thereby removing the credit card field and not allowing the customer to complete checkout. We are investigating a solution and recommend using Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari to complete you sale.(Issue has been solved).
Additionally, I’ve reset a few downloads. Note that downloads are set to 3 attempts for each individual product, and download link expire in one week’s time, so be sure to download your purchases right away and email me through the “Contact” box if you are having problems. You can get to your account page here: https://www.epoch-art.com/my-account. I understand you are spending your hard-earned money for my stuff and I want to make sure that you are able to get it!
Getting all of this storefront stuff up and running was a lot more work than I had anticipated, and I had anticipated quite a bit. Although Clara Ravens Episode 3 Epilogue is finished, and the Dynamic Comic Viewer has been beta-tested and is ready to go, we are still in a ‘hold’ pattern. Part of the reason is because I didn’t realize how long the approval process could take for getting a payment gateway and credit card processor set up. Also, the team who is to build the storefront had other tasks that prevented them from completing work on it by the end of September. That is outsourced work, and they have other clients, after all.
So while I wait for approval, I have gotten my SSL certificate ready to go and the whole website is now under the safety of 256 bit encryption. This required a switching of my primary and add-on domains, so from now on please use epoch-art.com. Now that I own that domain and it has been transferred
