Some really early proof-of-concept screenshots of a Super Robot Wars 3 rework.
Before and after:
These encompass the following milestones:
1) SRW3's build system has been redone, and most (but not all) of the unedited, unfixed text inserts into the new version.
2) SRW EX's font code has been ported to SRW3 without any notable challenges.
Maybe three days' total worth of writing utilities, porting code, examining the old build and moving data around. The actual font hack, since it's literally EX's code copy/pasted into SRW3, took about two hours. There are still some technical challenges present (menus that need expansion, variable strings that need fixing like in that last image) but these are nothing that hadn't already been solved for EX and won't pose any significant barrier. There's also a lot more work to do fixing incorrect names and such, but it's a damn good start for just a couple of days' worth of off-time work.
