      The latest info is that the place is dead... the creator of glTRON got married, and is living in the real world now.

        The project is not dead, but somewhat in hibernation. Don't blame my wife for that though, blame Blizzard instead. Onyxia, Molten Core, BWL, I'm stuck in a different virtual world :-)

        A brief summary on the current state of the code:

        What works:

        • Loading level geometry from obj files works
        • Limited to a single texture per mesh (i.e. one for the floor, one for the rest)
        • Loading (and playing with) arbitrarily shaped floors (as long as the floor's flat) works

        What doesn't work:

        • Resource management is broken, i.e. changing artpacks, changing resolution etc. is currently buggy
        • AI plays crappy, because it essentially assumes the grid is still a square (it dodges walls, but doesn't try to get out of e.g. tight spots).
        • Loading of old artpacks isn't supported at the moment.

        I have to fix the resource management, but I'll probably leave the AI for a later revision. I also want to fix the artpack issue, e.g. the game should be able to convert older artpacks on load.

      Hi!
      No, I wasn't blaming her.... I was saying you had something I didn't.... a life, lol.
      Nice to see you here.

        Switch to Guild Wars? After I've just gotten my T2 legs (Legplates of the Ten Storms)? Are you insane?

      I just got my Droknar's Forge armor for my Necromancer.... cost me a good ten platinum (10,000 gold.
      Lol, I guess the conflict between WoW and GW will never end.
