Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted news in a while. For a while there I didn't really have anything to post, and then, when I did have something to post, I didn't have the internet. So anyways, here's the update.

So, while my internet was dead for three weeks, I managed to get quite a bit of work done on the new engine. It now draws characters and items which can be seen across map boundaries. Players can move around and you can see one another but they are not animated yet. There are a few bugs with transferring players across maps seamlessly, but overall it's looking good (and keeping a high framerate as well). I haven't worked on it for a week or two but maybe if I can find some motivation I'll get back to it again...and if school dies down...but I doubt that's going to happen.

In other news, I started a blog for gamers called UpDownLeftRight. It has mostly (all but one game related post) been me posting despite the fact that I've asked a few people to help out. If anyone is interested or wants to help drop me an email or PM and we can chat.

Other than that, I'm sorry to see that the forums are dead but hey, it's my own fault I suppose for not posting anything new in a long time. I'm sure you're all super busy too...damn IRL stuff.

LBP FOREVER!!!

I check up every once in a while.
I wonder why everyone dropped off the earth-face?

Also: I'd love to help out the blog, on the condition that I can do games from an older era. I'm having a hard time keeping up with all you young 'uns and your technology.
Best of the SNES? Sega's hidden wonders? Hugo's House of Horrors? Nethack?
It's not totally useful, and it's all been done before, but it's what I've got.

sum day ill eat ur cat ricko...

Sure, maybe you can do a series reviewing a retro game every week or something. I'm gonna put you on probation for a bit though because the other people I asked to help, don't post anything. So, yea. Drop me a line on MSN or something and let me know what you have to post and we'll go from there.

Wow I didn't know the forums were still around. If you don't remember me, I asked about the Computer Talk source code.

+1 to the lurker team.
