Did everyone completely forget about it? Has ANYTHING happened? Like, anything? At all?
I don’t think I’ve seen a single thing done with SMP. Actually, it looks like this is turning into a Project Prime forum (not that that’s a bad thing), and there hasn’t really been a post in the upper two sections of topics except new users asking if anythings been done.
I say, everybody get a Super Metroid ROM and the programs Daz posted. If he or someone else can post the tileset, take that and start making a level. People can get ref’s for the layouts and anything like that, and we can get SOMETHING done. I would have made something myself if I had the tiles.
Let’s try not to let this die the same way P2D did, and especially not this early.
There is that thing I’m working on, remember? <_< >_>
0.5 months left. Think I’ll finish?
Well, the answer is it won’t be as much as I aimed for. The big, showy feature I wanted to have in my engine is taking too much time, so I’ve stopped working on it for now, and I’ve had a short, busy summer. But the things I’ve managed to pull together are pretty cool, so I’ll still have a little app. Hopefully it will be cool enough.
It was a good try, but I honestly think it’s impossible for this game to ever be released. The project is simply too big, and all the hold-ups make things even worse. Even if some magic God Engine is released (like that one CFX guy used to praise all the time yet never showed anyone) Prime is such a massive game I’m sure progress would die shortly after because level design is probably one of the most tedius and slow process ever, and don’t forget Prime has hundreds of rooms. Putting blush on a dead hooker isn’t going to make her look any more appealing.
