Tasting Alpha

Alpha Testing should begin hopefully sometime between January and February, 2005. Not that this is any important news but now that I'm able to code in places other than work (thank you J.

Development on Ixion Begins...for real...

I've finally located someone willing to part with their ancient Visual Studio 6 installation! ^_^

Help Wanted - Feature Requests

Pen and paper gamers, I call for your aid.

Anyone who knows a good deal about character design for BESM or AD&D will be greatly appreciated and will earn a spot in the credits (and possibly a spot on the project team, depending on how good you are).

E-mail me at sekaide@users.sourceforge.net if interested.

Interface design is half the problem, what with me constantly changing my ideas and all, so naturally there will be bumps along the road where finicky little me will want to change some small nonsensical design element. I could sketch it out, but why do that when I can screenshot and print my interfaces?... read more
