Excellent. :drool_2:

Please let us know how it turns out DR. This is one of the few Atomiswave titles that I actually have some degree of interest/faith in at this point.

I'm dying to hear about this game. I still love 2D fighters over ANY other game, and the cast in this is just insane. Please fill us in as to what it's like. Beezle, I'm counting on you as you've always given us the best info every time. :drool:

Hope it plays nice. I also hope one day I can actually play the game. (SNK of America give us something? Surely I'm kidding myself)

I got one question. That pic of Castlevania. Exactly what does that come from? Is it a game that wasn't finished?

Nope, just a screenshot of something i program when i have time. I am what you call a "homebrewer" :)

Very nice. I love the percieved color depth. Definitely a potential for the prettiest Castlevania to come out, in some time. Are you using existing music, or are you planning to use new stuff? I can help, if you're interested in getting new music.

Actualy the art is not mine at all, everything is ripped from SOTN (either saturn or PSX).

you can grab my 1st test there: http://amberwars.free.fr/puzzledp.zip and try it in mame if you wish. It was just a scroll + input test (just running,dashing,crouching).

I went farther and implemented a level program logic and jumps but it s buggy and i don t have much time.

I did a bit of FF Tactics for neogeo too, but couldn t manage to make it smooth (too many layers of sprites to recreate PSX graphics). I coded part of the AI in assembly to help a bit but that didn t make it so i left it appart until a better devkit arrives :)


for the music... err... i did that for the FM (only thing i can touch on MVS hardware so far) : http://amberwars.free.fr/mvstr_c.zip
it s the MVS tracker and my castlevania tune

anyway we are faaaaaaaaaaar out of topic :) so let s stop here about this.

You ll know more when i am ready to show something more pro.

I forgot for a sec that you probably wouldn't get the info up until day after tomorrow for us since you're already living in tomorrow.

wewt! Loke baby! i'll be there with beez sunday and monday. i'll take my camera along and see if i can sneak some decent pics (as opposed to the incredibly crappy ones i took of CFJ with my cheap-ass phone). i think there's usually goons around to stop pics but we'll see how stealth we can be.

well its at navel which is not an snk arcade though the goons will be there... lets just use our gaijin power and help you get some nice shots. we might be looking for some hosting space come sunday night....

ill post brief impressions from an hour or so tomorrow morning in under 24 hours.

Hopefully that means we'll see some on-site clips of the game in action. I've been lookin' forward to this since the downloadable promo came out. :D
