Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know there has been some great progress lately by slowbeef, who also did the Policenauts LP.

http://www.viddler.com/explore/slowbeef/videos/62/

As you can see in this video, not all the text displays when prompted, but this has since been rectified. The linebreaks and menus are also being attended to. The in-game dialogue subtitles have yet to be addressed. Also, before you start pointing out typos and errors, this is not the final script! Just a working one to use for the purposes of getting the coding right. Look for an updated video at some point.

Here is another video done by our previous programmer who is still helping us in a supporting role....



Here you can see the nametags in place (these are just small image files and are easily implemented).

A screen with Lorraine from later on....

Image

Anyway, the future's looking bright! Stay tuned as we try and post regular updates as the project -- gasp! -- moves nearer completion. Thank you for sticking with us for so very long.

Great to finally hear some positive news about the project. Helping out with the Junker Wiki has put me in the mood for more Kojima games, so this has come at a good time for me. As always, I'm looking forward to this, and the whole team has my best wishes.

It's too bad I had to offer slowbeef my first born in exchange for this progress. Luckily, I'm pro-choice.

Dude you should leave it like that, because going somewhere with the King Diamond logo in the middle is way cooler than just going "outside". :P

Sorry to hear about that, Charlie.

Some more good news from slowbeef, though.

Thank you. It's okay though, I never had an aunt. I Just thought I'd bring the mood down a little bit.

Oh, and have the emulation problems been resolved yet? I'm still thinking whether I should get a modded PS1 before the patch's release or not.

Though it may sound as if my life is quite boring, I still have to admit that this update is one of the highest points of my month. Are you sure you guys aren't taking donations? ;)

I have to say, Slowbeef's addition to the team has certainly paid off. After a full year of being completely halted, I was shocked to see so much optimism and energy return to the project! If you don't mind me asking, Marc, will there be an updated "To-Do" list coming soon? (Similar to the one you wrote up for the last status update?)



Oh yes, I'd donate to the cause - Anything to inspire more progress! :D

Sure, mainstream games are fun, but you haven't tried Snatcher yet.
