What does this mean??
It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious.

If nothing else, I'd say it's safe to say Energy Breaker is coming out soon. Which would be friggin' awesome. :D

Good news, everyone!

Oh, it's definitely coming soon, considering that he's building the pages for the 1.00 release. >_>

I only have one more bug to fix but it's a doozy!

Something got broken years ago and now the energy bar drawing code takes longer than a vsync cycle. I'm trying to track it down but, my gods, timing bugs are absolute evil.

I said Saturday "at the latest" but there's not going to be an early release, though i thought I could get it out today.

Release date is confirmed to be this Saturday.

Have any of you heard from Avi in the past few years? It's been damn near a decade since I last heard from him and I'be been wondering where he's been.

satsu and I are wondering the same thing. I last heard from in January, this year.

Isn't that the way... A vast number of issues rose up at the last minute so the project is delayed by a day orz.

Slight delay again. An advertisement for SVN or other versioning system occurred.

Speaking of last minute things, I overlooked the translation of a very subtle bit of Japanese text recently, which is now fixed:

"KA-BOOM!"

At first I experimented with text (forgive the shitty graphic):


But it turns out the graphic gets flipped (!) depending on Dorothy's orientation:



So I went with a non-text replacement graphic instead.


Incidentally, this graphic is visible for slightly less than a second.

I just thought I'd give a status update...

Thing got a bit delayed because I foolishly decided to replace the collection of band-aid patches for the menus with something a bit more robust, before release, having found a few VRAM overflow garble-glitches. It turns out that the outer loops for the menus in EB are stupid. Really, some of the worst programming I've seen. I've ripped a huge amount of code since my stated release day and have managed to improve the menus... over the original. EB-english menus are snappier, glitchlessier and generally better than the original game. Huzzah! I --hope-- I can finish of the last bit of hacking over next week for a next-weekend release but we'll see, I've grown to loathe one programmer in particular on this game and it will depend on how much of his work is in these final bits I need to attack.

Sorry about this. EB isn't vapour, honest!

In addition to DNQ's work on the menus, we've made some other improvements during this extra time as well, such as:

- Fixed the numbers on the battle orders screen from the original font to match the chancery-style font used for the rest of the text on that screen.

- Fixed an issue where words that began with "Star" would have Star's name inserted (oops), so if you called Star "Butts", words like "Start" written with an initial cap would display as "Buttst".

Funny, the stuff that comes out before release.

Renaming to Far will now be less hilarious from a grade school perspective.  >:(

You could still rename him to Fart for a similar effect.
