On the programming front, I’m still working on the new GUI stuff. Two things left to take care of: list boxes and volume controls (the two hardest). I’ll try to have this stuff finished tomorrow night. I also need to make 1 critical addition to the NZ map editor, that is the ability to flip tiles horizontally and vertically. I originally throught tile flips would be unnecessary, but after playing about with the latest tile sets Nilesh created, I quickly saw that tile flips are essential to NZ map making. The process itself is easy (just shift texture coordinates), but when you have to make the changes to the map ed., the map compiler, and NZ, things become messy. Especially considering the map ed. and NZ use different rendering engines and are written in 2 different languages (C# for the map ed., C++ for NZ).
On the writing front, I haven’t forgotten about the NZ story and script. The intro story is, for the most part, finished. I just need to make some minor modifications and correct some grammer errors. I’ll put a link to it on the NZ page once I’m done. The script is being worked on. It’s a lot easier to write than the intro story; simply b/c I’ve found that dialog is easier to write than narrative. I should have a lot of it done by the end of the week.
I’m on spring break right now, but I have midterms coming up (starting with a killer one for Algorithm Analysis class next week Wed.), so I’m trying to get as much done as possible this week.
